The cultured denizens of the Internet will be familiar with the great artist 40hara for his IYAPAN – I Want You to Make a Disgusted Face and Show Me Your Underwear franchise, which has been an art book, a manga, an anime, a hoodie, and even a pair of panties. He’s since taken to drawing his cat, Kinako, as an anime catgirl. She’s taken Twitter by storm, and now comes to us in the form of an acrylic keychain. Preorders, with 10% off, are open now on J-List.
Kinako’s charm lies in how universal and relatable she is to anyone who’s ever shared a home with a cat. Whether she’s standing right in front of you while you’re trying to play a game, tapping on your keyboard while you’re trying to do something, or staring at you awkwardly from around a corner, you can sense a cat-ness in her that isn’t always there with anime catgirls and is uniquely charming (even if she has, objectively, the incorrect number of ears).
You can get two different styles of Kinako keychain, both with unique front and back expressions.
The Meow features Kinako meowing and pawing at you.
The Turn Around shows her sitting and turning to look at you.
