PostSubject: Kuma-Chang   Kuma-Chang!! I_icon_minitimeTue Jul 22, 2008 3:27 pm

For the record, I don't at all mind her bear. In fact, I find most Kuma-posts very amusing and cute. She goes all in-character and takes the time to set up pictures of Kuma doing various things like a real and sentient being. It's horribly funny sometimes - such as sometime last year when he hid the Famicon console from Hikaru, saying that she wasn't allowed to play Dragon Warrior/Quest until she played with him first.




Anyway, what I want to know is when she got this bear, and from whom? When did she change his name to Kuma-chan to Kuma Chang after she found that he was made in China? And then... when did she go all Kuma crazy and started to write messages in bear-form?

Any Kuma Chang talk is welcome in this thread!

I've always wondered about Kuma too. I always thought he was a little bed-time friend for her but he doesn't look very child-worn, does he? I always thought it all started with Boku Wa Kuma and Utada just went with the flow of explaining the song, but the more and more I started following her blogs (it was around the Boku Wa Kuma era), the more she obsessed.

I'm not sure where she got him. Explanation would be great since there's not much out there. I would also love to know where to get a similar one (if possible).

I think she started showing him more often around Boku Wa Kuma and beyond, but i remember her having him before that, not as obsessed, and calling him Kuma-CHAN. She eventually found he was made in China, and so on.

She probably isn't bear obsessed in real life. It's probably made to make her blog posts cute. There is a possiblity that her company gave her the Kuma idea to work with.

I wonder about that... she does bring him on all of her trips.... and the various photos. I think that she's really into him.

Her images of his butt for instance. I've been reading many of her 2007 posts and she seems to be very, very fixated on Kuma-Chang. Even in 2006 during her tour for UU.

I think that it's great that a 25 year old plays with her huge stuffed bear...

Have you guys seen a glimpse of her appearance on Shin Domoto Kyoudai?

In the show, she mentions alot about Kuma-Chan. Courtesy of my friend, the rest of the interview will be up on Hikki Station soon.

Spoiler:
 

Nevertheless, it's up to you to decide whether she's crazy about the bear or not. Razz

I wonder what that thing smells like by now. It wouldn't fit in a washing machine.

I saw it and thought the whole thing was the cutest thing ever. I love her more for it. If you don't mind Sano, here is the link to her appearance on the show:





very funny and informative for hikki fans

Sano: Fixed the video. Smile

I don't remember when she got Kuma-Chang (I think back in 2006 or 2005) but she got him from her ex-husband. If I remember right (which probably isn't likely) she changed Kuma-Chan to Kuma-Chang after like a couple of weeks of having him. But Chan or Chang, it's still pronounced the same just spelled differently. She was obsessed with Kuma-Chang BEFORE Boku Wa Kuma but she showed him more publicly after the song. o-o I could be wrong 'cause I got this information like a while back (probably 2 or 1 year ago)...

I hope she does something with Makura-san 'cause I love pillows A WHOLE LOT. I even had two Mr. Pillow's before. XDD

No offense to anyone Utada works with, but I really doubt that anyone is creative enough to pitch the bear idea. I think Utada just loves it and obsesses with it. She even goes out of her way to love Kuma-Chang. Highly doubtful that it's the work of a bunch of hard industry people.

I'm glad you guys enjoyed the videos, I only hope that Youtube doesn't decide to take them down.
I just found out about this forum and I'm a big Hikki fan also. I have lots of videos and stuff so if you ever want to see something just send me a shout and I'll see if I can upload it for you guys somewhere.

Off-topic, but welcome to the forums!

I saw that you contacted my friend about translating the episode. Thanks to you asking the favor, a lot of the fans enjoyed the episode of Shin Domoto Kyoudai. Thank you. cheers

Thanks for the Youtube Video link! That was a very enjoyable watch for me.

I also agree that Hikki is probably behind the whole Kuma Chang bit. I can't see her fetish for drawing manga, collecting Kuma items, taking pictures of his fat ass as a publicity making stunt. If it were conjured, she'd be doing that with her cat-thing.. what was it called again? It doesn't benefit U3 financially at all.

Hikki strikes me as crazy enough anyway. I was reading.. and her seemingly frugal self indulged in a 2,000,000 yen Louis Voutton (?) box for Kuma Chang: custom made so that he can use the airplane. And she complained about 'impulse buying' stickers at her local 7-11 shop. .. We all have our Archilles Heels, I suppose!

I can't recall when I started to read the back-blogs - but I do know that I started before Utada United - perhaps I will find the time and boredom to go all the way back and find when Kuma Chang was given birth to. Gah.. I need a life.

Of all the subjects, even if this one dies off, it still needs to be here. I mean, he's the center of cuteness on Hikki's blogs and such! So, talk about his cuteness and post pics of the one, the only, the cutest: KUMA-CHANG!

I rather like the ones from 2k7, where she snuggles with him in bed.

I admit, I'm a fan of Kuma-chang. I love his slightly retarded way of thinking and his underdeveloped speech. I often imagine him in a low and rather stupid sounding voice. I wonder what kind of voice Hikaru gives him. Is it high pitched and girly?

I remember watching a video, 'Kuma Chang - Coming to Work', where Hikki was dressed in a giant Kuma Chang costume. That costume was mentioned in Shin Doumoto Kyoudai too, wasn't it? Ha, I remember thinking that Hikki in that costume was the cutest thing ever.
