Rilakkuma website revamp!

Check out the newly redesigned Rilakkuma website!

It’s Rilakkuma Wonderland themed, and the home page features drum major Korilakkuma leading a marching band of Rilakkumas across your screen!

Rilakkuma Wonderland - march animation

So many little drummer bears!

Be sure to check out the new Rilakkuma Wonderland flash animation, and see if you can spot all the cameos from previous series – I personally love the bunny Korilakkuma peeking out from behind the tree near the beginning when the marching band is first revealed:

Can you spot her?

Also, y’all were right that drummer Rilakkuma was in mid-chew!

Stay to the end and hover over some of the Rilakkumas to hear them play their instruments and more! The Rilakkuma face at the top of the tent lights up with hover too haha

Personally, I think this is one of the most well done flash animations they’ve ever produced! I love that it’s a little interactive :)

I’ll be making .gifs from this to put on the Rilakkuma Gifs tumblr too!

That’s all for now! Just getting ready for Japan now – 2 weeks until departure!

New Rilakkuma gifs on tumblr!

Since I got a little gif addicted, I started up a new tumblr blog dedicated entirely to Rilakkuma gifs!

Because I’m a big fan of straightforward naming, you can find it at rilakkumagifs.tumblr.com!

Rilakkuma Gifs - hula dancers

One of many Rilakkuma gifs!

Enjoy!

I took care to tag them all appropriately, so they’ll be easy to search by series and character – though I’ve only made and queued gifs of the Tamago (chicken/egg), Aloha (Hawaii), and Tokyo Skytree series so far.

More to come when I find more Rilakkuma videos! There used to be ones from the older series, but the links seems to have disappeared with the recent layout renovation over at San-X – maybe I’ll have to do some digging…

Skytree Rilakkuma gifs!

While browsing the Skytree Rilakkuma Store’s webpage, I came across a really cute flash animation, and decided to use it as my first exercise in making gifs using this tutorial from WikiHow!

Here are my results:

Gif - Skytree Rilakkuma with dango

Rilakkuma with dango!

GIf - Skytree Rilakkuma rainbow

Rilakkuma and friends sliding down a rainbow!

These gifs don’t really fit the theme of the Rilakkuma Lifestyle tumblr for me to post there, but I thought they were so cute, so I had to share :)
