Believe me when I say it took awhile to get this story straight. So..Gudetama is a…Sanrio (aha!) character. And let’s just quote RN24 for the deets:
“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.”
And what’s all this about? Big G is taking a road trip- a special appearance from now ’til September 6 at Langham Place, a big high-end shopping spot in Hong Kong. (Location info below.)
Unless you just wanna eat him, of course.
