Domo Arigato

Suck it, Hello Kitty! We’d rather sop up merchandise featuring Japan’s brownest character, Domo

Although Domo gained a toehold in American nerd culture thanks to online groups dedicated Photoshop tomfoolery, he actually originated as the mascot of Japan’s public TV station NHK. Recognizing their character’s growing popularity here in the States, they’re tossing Domo’s likeness onto as much merch as possible. If you or someone you love is looking to have a very, very Domo Christmas, here are some of your best options:

Domo the Manga Many of Domo’s adventures include either watching TV or farting. So clearly this is a top-notch manga.

Domo Courier Bag Not surprisingly, Domo’s big rectangular head lends itself well to becoming a big rectangular bag.

Domoooo! Attack Energy Drink Domo’s favorite food is meat and potato stew. Draw your own conclusions about what this energy drink may taste like.

Domo Hat Understandably, this baseball cap features only Domo’s mouth and eyes—although including his legs as ear flaps coulda been kinda cool.

Nintendo DSi games Five downloadable DSi games let Domo race bikes, hit golf balls, paddle kayaks, play music and misbehave in construction sites.
