Onegai My Melody
With the release of the anime “Onegai My Melody“, new characters were introduced. Among them are My Melody’s rival, Kuromi, also a white rabbit but donning a black jester hat with a pink skull, and her tapir, Baku, a very patient guy, especially where Kuromi is concerned.
Kuromi has a gang of her own called Kuromi’s 5, who all ride bikes and wear black. Members of these are Nyanmi, Wanmi, Konmi, and Chumi. Don’t mistake Kuromi for being tough and heartless, though! She’s actually very girly, and she has the habit of having crushes on cute guys.
Humans also became part of the cast. From Yumeno Uta, the girl protagonist and friend of My Melody, to Hiiragi Keiichi, the seemingly cold violin player and heartthrob, they add more humor and magic to the widening “cast” involving My Melody.
