Jewelpet - Coming Our Way in 2011

Welcome to our information page on the Japanese Anime/Manga/Toy Range, Jewelpet. Jewelpet is a joint venture between toy giant, Sega and Hello Kitty creators, Sanrio. We're told that Jewelpet is to be rolled out across Europe in 2011 in a big way, but given the massive plans, there is remarkably little information about Jewelpet available from any non-Japanese online source. On this page, we'll try and bring you links to as many of those limited resources as we can - we have video, images, an introduction to the anime, glimpses of the toy range and much more besides.

As more information becomes available as the year progresses, we'll be keeping this page up to date with more news on the European Jewelpet launch. In the meantime, enjoy what we've pulled together...

KEY FACTS: Jewelpet is a Japanese toy range created by Sanrio and Sega, which has now also become an Anime series.

A Brief Background to Jewelpet

Unusually, the toy range for Jewelpet beat the anime into existence. Produced by Sega Toys, the Jewelpet plush toys were released in Japan in late 2008. In common with many popular toys, the purchase of items from the plush range gives access to the online Jewelpet world.

In April 2009, the anime series, made by Sanrio, hit Japanese screens. The first season comprised 52 episodes, aired weekly and (for the slow of maths) ran for a year. It features the human character, Rinko, who finds a Jewel Charm and discovers that it contains one of a number of magically transformed Jewelpets that have been scattered across earth, far from their magical home of Jewel Land. Rinko and her friends take on the mission of regathering the Jewelpets and returning them to Jewel Land.

Straight afterwards, the second series - Jewelpet Tinkle - began airing. It's still running and features the adventures of a human girl called Akari and a Jewelpet called Ruby.
