Inspired by Studio Ghibli’s Soot Sprites (featured in My Neighbor Totoro and Spirited Away) this little Soot Sprite is hoarding a large stash of the sugary candy, konpeito! (If you’re an Animal Crossing fan, you can also imagine they’re star fragments!)
Maybe don’t ask him to share, he may get upset. It would be covered in coal dust anyway.
