Narita’s Unari-kun named mascot of 2017

Unari-kun, the official mascot of Narita City in Chiba Prefecture, defeated 1,157 rivals from localities nationwide to win this year’s Yuru-kyara Grand Prix title. Chiryuppi of Chiryu, Aichi Prefecture, and Torai-kun of Higashi-Osaka, Osaka Prefecture, took second and third spots, respectively.

Unari-kun is the special tourism ambassador of Narita, which is famous for its international airport and unagi eel dishes. In light of his victory, here’s 10 things you might not have known about Narita’s lovable mascot:

β€’ Unari-kun’s birthday is Nov. 21, which coincidentally fell two days after the results of the vote were announced.

β€’ He’s half airplane, half eel.

β€’ Unari-kun lives in Narita.

β€’ He’s originally from the planet of Unari.

β€’ He first landed on Earth at Narita’s airport.

β€’ He decided to stay in Narita because the city is full of fantastic places, great food and hospitable people.

β€’ Unari-kun can get along with anybody.

β€’ His favorite phrase is β€œγ†γͺ” (β€œunaβ€œ), which he often says at the end of his sentences.

β€’ His favorite things are children in Narita, yōkan (sweet bean jelly), teppōzuke (pickled gourd), sweet potatoes, lotus roots and seasonal flowers.

β€’ The cylindrical objects hanging from Unari-kun’s arms do not represent rolls of toilet paper but airplane engines.

Unari-kun has more than 33,500 followers on Twitter. The tweet from his official account announcing the news that he had won the Yuru-kyara award has been retweeted more than 4,900 times and has 8,400 β€œlikes.”

Bernie officialy has his own toyline

We are very happy to announce that Bernie overcome the minimum threshold of 100 pre-orders in 2 weeks and now he has his official Budsies toyline! Kudos to all the people who made their pre-orders and the Budsies crew to fufil the dream of Bernie’s father Aerick Hood and to see his creature in a plush form! Awwwwww and the results are simply ADORABLE. 😍😍😍😍😍

Now, everybody in the world will be now able to put their hands on this awesome and super duper adorable orange blob monster who loves sleeping and eating all day long! We’re glad to see that our endorsement to Bernie did not get wasted and rather helped him to reach this important achievement!

We are so proud you, Aerick and Bernie!

Help Bernie the blob monster (soon-to-be HRSMA RSFTM) to have his very own toyline!

Bernie is a unique blob monster who is just looking for a place to nom and take a good nap. He’s also a good bedtime companion that perfectly complements the other, cute and super adorable mascot plushes! The result? Absolute cuteness to the maximum. *faint out of cuteness overload* Awwwww my god I can perfectly imagine how cuddly and happy he will be. So chubby like our Borobi πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ Would you want a plush toy of Bernie for yourself? I want one! Everyone needs a monster in their lives, whether how weird it can be.

Now, as Budsies need to know the minimum threshold of the product so to keep the price of the plush toys affordable, Bernie’s father Aerick Hood will have to sell at least 100 of the super adorable Bernie plushes by next Tuesday (22/8/17 in the USA, 23/8/17 in Singapore). If he successfully sells 100 Bernie plushes, the plush toy will officialy have it’s very own toyline! So preorder now, and you will soon see Bernie being featured as a toyline forever! Get one super soft and adorable (soon-to-be HRSMA RSFTM) Bernie today! Oh god he’s sooooo adorable 😍😍😍😍😍 I’m going to get one now. *πŸƒπŸ’¨πŸ’¨πŸ’¨*

When the 2018 Henrusian YOM is over, sport events are over and so does the duty of the mascots……what now?

They’re all so cute. Soohorang and Bandabi. Borobi. Zabivaka. Awwwwwww my god 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

But when their duty is over, can they stay, or once again disappear?

Like Clyde, Glasgow 2014 CWG’s thistle mascot, stayed to become Team Scotland’s mascot. So we hope that they can be remembered, preserved and can be seen again even after sport events are over, by being mascots of other things, like sport teams, skiing resorts, beaches, department stores, or provinces.

Yes, even though there are newer mascots being announced in more upcoming sport events, we still want them. Who knows “mascots” in the future would look like? Like something else that looks so unattractive?Something really weird, or?

I may be dramatising and exaggerating, but we just want the mascots of 2018, and all upcoming sport events, to stay and be preserved, so that they can be seen by people from our upcoming generations, forever.

Bernie chosen to have his toyline by Budsies; HRSMA RSFTM status pending until patent is applied

Bernie with his dad, Aerick Hood

Congrats to Bernie for being chosen to have his very own toyline! We are so proud of him! Until he has a patent, he is yet to be be considered a mascot by HRSMA.

As he is chosen, Budsies has given Bernie’s dad Aerick Hood 2 weeks to sell 100 Bernie plush toys to prove the proposed toy line’s successfulness. If thr goal is reached, Budsies will proceed with the toyline!

I have great faith in Bernie. He has potential to also become a mascot, while being the protagonist in Aerick Hood’s “The Land of Monsters” comics. When successful, he will be very popular among the young and old (and the not-so-young people). Go Bernie!
