2001nov11. Kogepan characters. A popular series of cute Japanese bread-based characters which will soon invade your hometown. “When feeling like talking, it’s going to be long.” My favorite is when Kogepan tries to imitate Ichigopan by putting strawberries on his head. “Hey, lookit me! Over here! I’m Ichigopan!!! You will respect the spurious strawberries!” Oh Kogepan, will you ever get didactic?
