Though they may come from different backgrounds, Summiko Gurashi (Corner Buddies) share at least one common bond, they can be found in corners. Characters Include:
Shiro Kuma - This adorable White Polar Bear left his cold corner of the north along with his luggage wrapped in a pink polka dotted Furoshiki. He is most comfortable sitting in the corner drinking hot tea.
Tonkatsu - Is 1% Meat and 99% Attitude. He is mostly Oily, Greasy Breading that typically gets pushed to the corner of your plate.
Neko - is a shy cat who loves to go to the corner and claw the walls. It makes her feel very safe.
Penguin? - From the farthest corner of the South Pole, this Penguin with low self-esteem tries to disguise himself as the more acceptable Kappa (Water Spirit from Japanese Folklore). Kappa are usually seen as mischievous troublemakers.
Tapioca - Found in the corner of your cup when you are finished with your bubble tea.
Zasou (Mr. Weed) - Mr. Weed was cut from a flower arrangement by the florist and thrown into the corner. Mr. Weed goes to bed each night and dreams of waking up as a beautiful bouquet. However unlikely, his dream will never die.
Hokori (Dust) - You know dust. He is found in the Corner and Under the Couch.
Nisetsumuri - Is a slug who tries to disguise himself as a Snail, which we all know is a step in the right direction.
