It seems that animal shaped cute things made in Japan are destined to be popular.
Want proof? Check out these Japanese animal doughnuts (or “doubutsu doonatsu”) created by Ikumi Nakao, and only available at her bakery in Kawasaki and a few Floresta Doughnuts locations.
Being kawaii is one thing, but you know you’ve gone viral when they make an anime based on your animal doughnuts and then the characters in that anime become new doughnuts.
Check out the crazy anime video after the break (along with more pics) to see what we mean.
