Kuromi and My Melody are two of the most popular characters from Sanrio, the Japanese company that produces cute character goods. Kuromi is a black cat with a mischievous personality, while My Melody is a pink rabbit with a kind and gentle personality. The two characters have been rivals since their creation in 1996, but their rivalry has also made them better characters. Kuromi was created as a response to the popularity of My Melody. Sanrio wanted to create a character that was more edgy and cool than My Melody, and Kuromi was the perfect fit. Kuromi is often seen wearing a black hood and carrying a whip, and she has a mischievous smile that can be both cute and scary. A fanart Sanrio cursor with Cute Kuromi and My Melody.
