 1. Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku (SUPER RADICAL GAG FAMILY)


If you have already discovered the world of crazy Japanese comedy culture or manga, you should already know these characters.


The entire set of these LINE stickers are based on this manga.



If you use one of these LINE stickers, your Japanese friends will appreciate how deeply you understand Japanese humor.

 2. Gottsu “Ee” Kanji

Do you know the Japanese top comedian duo, Downtown? They had a very famous TV show from 1991 to 1997, called “Gottsu Ee Kanji”.



Downtown no Gottsu Ee Kanji (ダウンタウンのごっつええ感じ, roughly “Downtown’s Feeling Real Good”), was a Japanese variety show. It premiered on December 8, 1991 and ended its run on November 2, 1997. It aired on Fuji Television every Sunday night. Hosted by the comedy duo Downtown (consisting of Masatoshi Hamada and Hitoshi Matsumoto), it had several other actors and comedians in its regular cast, including You, Koji Imada, Koji Higashino, Itsuji Itao, Ryoko Shinohara, and Honkon (Takahiro Kurano).

Like most other Japanese variety shows, it featured guest interviews and games, but it is best known and remembered for its sketch comedy. Downtown and other cast members would dress in costumes and perform absurd skits with bizarre characters.


This TV show had an audience so huge that many people were shocked when it ended. This super crazy TV show is considered a kind of legend even today.





3. Downtown no Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende!!



This is also based on a famous TV show by Downtown. This TV show still airs so you can watch it if you get a chance while you’re in Japan!

4.  Manga Taro


The next sticker set is based on a manga of Manga Taro. The mangaka’s delicate touch makes each character sometimes very adorable, but sometimes very horrible or might even tread into Uncanny Valley territory.


 5.Utsurun Desu. 


Utsurun Desu. is originally a Yon-Coma manga. This innocent half boy and wild pig makes people feel relaxed.


Utsurun Desu. (伝染るんです。) is a Japanese manga created by Sensha Yoshida, which ran in Shogakukan’s Big Comic Spirits from 1989 to 1994. This manga is deemed to be one of the works that initiated the “irrational” or “unreasonable” gag comic genre where the reason of its funniness cannot be explained by logic and traditional sense of humor, which made this title very popular among teens and early twenties at that time. One of the most popular characters that appeared in Utsurun Desu was “the otter”, Kawauso-kun.

Utsurun Desu. roughly means “it infects you” and is a homophone for a disposable camera produced byFujifilm (where “Utsurun desu” means “it can take photos”).


Yonkoma manga (4コマ漫画, “four cell manga”, or 4-koma for short), a comic-strip format, generally consists of gag comic strips within four panels of equal size ordered from top to bottom. (They also sometimes run right-to-left horizontally or use a hybrid 2×2 style, depending on the layout requirements of the publication in which they appear.) Though the word yonkoma comes from the Japanese, the style also exists outside of Japan in other Asian countries as well as in the English-speaking market.
