Sanrio Friend of the Month: Sanrio Boys

December is all about Danshi this year, are you dreaming about Sanrio Boys?

The Sanrio Boys are a group of friends that attend Hijirikawa High School in Japan.

Each of them has a favorite Sanrio character. Here’s more:

Sanrio Boys:

  • Kouta Hasegawa prefers Pompompurin and loves Yakisoba, a delicious Japanese noodle dish.
  • Ryo Nishimiya once lived in London and favors the Little Twin Stars. He is a boy that’s in touch with his feminine side.
  • Shunsuke Yoshino is a talented soccer player with a competitive personality that is a big fan of Hello Kitty.
  • Yu Mizuno is a super popular class clown that also adores My Melody.
  • Seiichiro Minamoto is the serious president of the student council that has a soft spot for Cinnamoroll.
