Personality[edit | edit source]

The popular Usao-kun all the way from Keyboardmania!

Character Information[edit | edit source]

Pop'n Music 8:
It's Usao-kun
The position of the black eyes is very delicate
Looking back, I've redrawn it many times before getting to Usao-kun
Well well...

Although watermelon will appear a lot,
I think the watermelon dog's cute
Formerly, a certain program's "watermelon man" was seriously afraid
Sleeping with his head on a futon didn't rid of his habit of sleeping in a curled position
Watermelon has had a tremendous impact on my life

Usao-kun is an lavender anthropomorphic rabbit with a dazed expression and large black eyes, which Chihi notes was difficult to get on point. He dons a white T-shirt saying "I ♥ KM" and blue shorts.

Gamelan[edit | edit source]

Not much about Usao-kun's appearance has changed, aside from his red, white and black vest with a blue belt and shorts.
