Sanrio Wiki:About

From Sanrio Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search


Sanrio Wiki is an open-content encyclopedia about the Japanese company Sanrio, its subsidiaries and affiliates. Sanrio is a lifestyle brand that aims to spread heart-felt emotion under the philosophy "Small Gift Big Smile".

Sanrio produces and licenses gifts of many kinds. It also works in the publishing and animation industries and runs a franchise of KFC in Saitama, Japan.

Sanrio is loved for its many 'cute' original characters, such as the popular Hello Kitty and other lesser known characters such as My Melody, Cinnamoroll, Keroppi and Hangyodon. It owns rights to the Mr. Men and Peanuts franchises in Japan.


Sanrio Wiki is a newly founded project that was started on April 14, 2015 by Torchickens (Talk). It is hosted on the wiki-farm Shout Wiki, where anyone can create a wiki run under MediaWiki.

The wiki will always be run by fans and is not affiliated with Sanrio or its affiliates and subsidiaries.

Content on this wiki cannot be used for commercial purposes.


  • Please write articles in the main-space (content articles such as Cinnamoroll) in the third-person. This means do not use words such as "you", "I" or "we". However, they can be substituted for words such as "people", "player(s)", "the player", "they". The purpose of this policy is to keep this website close to a formal encyclopedia.
  • All content in the main-space must be relevant to Sanrio. Articles must have a basis in reality in relation to things that Sanrio or its affiliates own the rights to, or Sanrio related topics that have had a notable sociological impact (such as the discussion of whether Hello Kitty is really a cat). However, this is not a hard rule. What will be considered as notable enough will be decided on a case by case basis.
  • In the interest of copyright, please do not upload any copyrighted images unless you have express permission. Unfortunately Sanrio forbid the use of character images on fan-sites, and the founder of this wiki (Torchickens (Talk)) is based in the United Kingdom where fair use does not apply. Please see Sanrio Wiki:Copyrights for more information.
  • Copying information word for word on to the Sanrio Wiki from places where you are not the author (such as Wikipedia) is not allowed.
