Cinnamoroll’s story took place in the Cinnamon Cafe and its surrounding. One day, the owner of Cinnamon Cafe, Belbel, was admiring the beautiful sky when she discovered a tiny white puppy floating in the sky. It was Cinnamoroll! Belbel thought that Cinnamoroll came by because he smelled the tasty smell of cinnamon rolls from her cafe, so she decided to give some cinnamon rolls to him. Cinnamoroll immediately fell in love with both her and her cinnamon rolls, so he decided to stay in the cafe. Belbel called him Cinnamon because of the unique shape of his tail.

With his cuteness, he became instantly famous as the mascot of Cinnamon Cafe. His manga and animation series tell us the story of his adventures around the town when he wasn’t taking a nap in the cafe terrace. Of course, as a famous little puppy, he has a lot of friends including Mocha, Chiffon, Cappuccino, Espresso, and Little Milk. Cinnamoroll also has to face the antagonist, a dark cloud named Cavity.

Cinnamoroll stars in a manga series titled “Fluffy, Fluffy Cinnamoroll” that was serialized in Japan from 2004 through 2008 and an animation movie titled “Cinnamoroll: The Movie” that was aired in 2007. Aside from the manga and animation movie, Cinnamoroll also appeared in two various animations, such as Lloromanic and Cinnamoangels. Don’t forget that he has his own novel adaptation titled “Cinnamoroll: Cinnamon’s Wonderland Trip” and several picture books!
