Kitty and Mimmy

Hello Kitty is a fictional character created by Sanrio in 1975. She earns 7 billion dollars a year for Sanrio with products ranging from clothes, fashion accessories, clothes, and even high-end products like jewelry. Hello Kitty has already released several Hello Kitty TV series and video games. Hello Kitty even dipped their toes on aviation as they partnered with Eva Air to offer Hello Kitty flights.

Even after more than four decades as one of Japan’s most popular characters, Hello Kitty keeps finding ways to surprise us.This time, she’s shocked us once again as we’ve learned that she has a twin sister. She is Mimmy (pronounced closely to “Mimi”), who was born on the same day as, though just slightly later than, Kitty.

As identical twins, Kitty and Mimmy look exactly alike, but their ever-so-slightly different tastes in fashion are how you can tell them apart. While Kitty wears a red or pink bow on her left ear, Mimmy favors a yellow one on her right.

The bigger difference, though, is in their personalities. According to Mimmy’s official bio on Sanrio Japanese website, Mimmy is a little on the bashful and shy side, unlike her adventurous twin whose outgoing nature has netted her jobs in fields as varied as Shinto purification and construction site management. The website for Puroland, Tokyo’s Sanrio theme park, also says that the more introverted Mimmy enjoys embroidery and patchwork sewing, and that she excels in home economics in school.

Though Mimmy isn’t a new character, she’s been almost entirely overlooked by the fan community, with even many passionate Kitty supporters completely unaware of her existence. Personally, we haven’t been this shocked since we found out that SoraNews24’s ace reporter Mr. Sato has a twin.
