I was doing research for GR today when I started watching these animations of Kogepan, the burnt bread man. I used to be a big fan in high school, and Joanne even bought me the strawberry bread man stuffed animal. It’s sitting on my bed at home. But I never realized that these animations existed. As I’m watching these almost 5 years after I used to love Kogepan, I’m appreciating it on a different level. It’s depressing how he’s sad and an outcast because he’s burnt. He just sits there and gets drunk off milk with his burnt friend while the cute, perfect breads talk crap about him. Being an unemployed loser sort of makes me relate to the poor little guy. But it’s funny enough to cheer me up too.
