The cat plush toys thrown away like trash are the main characters of the story. With a distinctive difference from the bright and happy pop characters, HANGRY&ANGRY is the anti-character brand with an extreme, cruel, and grotesque image.
In 2004, “HANGRY&ANGRY” was derived from the h.NAOTO cosplay and character-style brand “CHANNEL H” as a “gro-kawa” (grotesque & cute) character brand.
Up-and-coming illustrator GASHICON is in charge of the producing of HANGRY&ANGRY’s characters and comics. With regular publications in the visual-kei music magazines, the comic successfully developed the unique world of HANGRY&ANGRY. The participation in the hit movie “Death Note” added even more popularity to the brand.
In 2008, the HANGRY&ANGRY shop opened in Osaka’s Ura-Harajuku.
Then, as a collaboration project with music, the rock character unit “HANGRY&ANGRY Future” was formed. With the popular former Morning Musume. members Hitomi Yoshizawa and Rika Ishikawa, the unit made its shocking debut.
In 2009, a fashion show event was held in Los Angeles, America, followed by the introduction of the collaborative product line produced for a popular game-maker’s crane game machines.
HANGRY&ANGRY is not only aiming to expand its character goods, it also aims to present its characteristic collections as a fashion brand.
