    New Sanrio Lazy Egg Gudetama

    I just started watching this because of the new LINE stickers on the photo app. His name is Gudetama and he is a living and lazy egg. You will see him in various situations like being forced out of his shell, falling asleep on a toast, using  a bacon as a blanket and in ramen of course.  With 1 minute episodes – He is reluctant to come out of his shell, swimming in his yolk on a dish and dangling on chopsticks.

    I am in love!

    Sanrio’s egg-turned-mascot character gets its name from a combination of the words “gude“(pronouced goo-deh), which is a Japanese onomatopoeia for describing something or someone with no energy or strength, and “tama” from the word tamago, which means egg in Japanese. And sure enough, Gudetama is an egg that, well … seems to lack the energy to do anything active at all.

    Gudetama actually has his own Twitter account, and his profile comment at the top says, “I really don’t feel like tweeting everyday. It’s such a bother. I’ll do it because the higher-ups tell me to, but I know I’m only going to be eaten in the end.” A grumpy egg who’s resigned to being cooked and consumed, now that’s certainly an unusual mascot character if we’ve ever seen one!
