Comics about young men who love Sanrio characters will be published via Sho-Comi website & Manga One app
Manga author Mai Andou will be publishing a pair of digital comics about the Sanrio Danshi, a fictional group of male high school students who bond over their love of Sanrio characters such as Hello Kitty and Pompompurin. One of the comics will be published on Shogakukan's Sho-Comi website, while the other will be published on the Manga One smart phone app.
Both comics will include the same 5 characters: Shunsuke Yoshino, a fan of Hello Kitty; Yuu Mizuno, a fan of My Melody; Kouta Hasegawa, a fan of Pompompurin; Ryou Nishimiya, a fan of Little Twin Stars; and Seiichiro Minamoto, a fan of Cinnamoroll. The subtitle of the Sanrio Danshi project is "Never Without My Favorite Friend".
The first Sanrio Danshi comic will debut via the Manga One smart phone app in April of 2016, while the second will begin publication on the Sho-Comi website in June of 2016.
