◎Main character: One day, he fell off the door.

Doorknob-kun loves sky blue and rice balls.

Pleasant Companions

●Mr. Stone


First appeared in the first episode. He was the first person who helped Doorknob fly into the blue sky. Doorknob still doesn’t realize it. He’s serious and hardworking, but also a little stubborn!


●Ms. Butterfly


She makes her first appearance in episode 2.

Doorknob-kun’s favorite sky-blue butterfly. She comes around on a whim.



●Mr. Simaegana


First appeared in episode 4. He magically gave Doorknob a scarf, but the beak came off and he became more expressive☻Gentle but dorky. The zebra moth looks just like a rice ball!  Maybe it’s because they look so much alike that Doorknob looks like a rice ball.

The author’s thoughts

The inspiration

Why did you decide to create this character?

When I asked for an in-depth interview, she kindly told me!

This is what the creator had to say.

I have always liked to think and imagine what non-living “things” would think if they were alive.

The doorknob is on the door without hesitation.

I wanted to create a story about a doorknob who secretly wanted to see various landscapes by himself.

That’s why I started to create the story of Doorknob-kun.

How to make

I was born in the digital age, generation Z.

I thought she was using the Apple Pencil to draw the illustrations.

I thought she was using an Apple Pencil to draw the illustration, but…

No way… fingers!

I was surprised to find out that she uses her fingers to draw on her iPhone and iPad.

The app she uses is ibisPaint (free app).


The more he drew, the more rounded the doorknob became.

At New Year’s, some of his fans asked him if he had gained weight at New Year’s.

The more I drew, the rounder he became. LOL!

Whenever I get used to drawing a character, he becomes rounder than before.

I think it’s because the character’s heart is also becoming rounder.

It’s like a round heart, and it makes me feel gentle☺.

Comparison of early drawings and current drawings

So, what are you waiting for?

I’m going to show you a special comparison of the pictures.



The first picture of Doorknob-kun and the current picture of Doorknob-kun

←The left side is the early picture, and the right side is the current picture.

Doorknob has become a little plump and round, and his cuteness has increased even more!

Future goals

She also told us about her future goals, which we were most interested in.

I’m continuing to draw with the goal of helping many people heal.

I hope that people will look at my SNS when they are tired and say, “What’s this? I’d be happy if people would smile when they see my work.

In the future, I’d like to draw more stories and come up with more goods.

I think a doorknob pouch would be absolutely adorable.

I also want to write essays that will cheer you up when you’re feeling tired.

Essay books and short animations that will cheer you up just by reading them…

I’m thinking of all kinds of things that I can do to bring a little happiness to many people.

If you start with small things, you can make big dreams come true… ✨.

I look forward to seeing more of you in the future!

The Story of Doorknob-kun

Episode 1.  The Birth of Blue Doorknob-kun

[The birth episode of Doorknob-kun 👼🏻]

第1話 青いドアノブくんの誕生

Doorknob-kun was so curious about what the outside world was like.
Before he knew it, he was bending over.

Then, one day, he fell off the door.
It rolled and rolled and rolled… and it wouldn’t stop. I was scared.
I’m very curious.
He is very curious, but he doesn’t like pain or fear, and he is a crybaby.

Eventually, he bumped into a rock…
No, is that a rock?
The stone startled him, and it seemed to hurt just as much.
Even so, he tried to save Doorknob, who was rolling upside down.
In the end, I cheered him on and sent him off.

Doorknob, who didn’t know that, was terrified to death.
But when he landed on the ground, he was stunned to see an extraordinary sight.
There was a beautiful, beautiful blue sky.
Doorknob stares at him with eyes that sparkle so much.
Mr. Sun shared the “blue” part of the sky with Doorknob-kun.

The first thing that happened to him was that his heart brightened up at once.
The tears I had shed dried up.
The tears that I had shed dried up, and I was filled with joy at seeing the gentle sunshine and my favorite color that I had ever seen.
In the blink of an eye, the feelings of fear and sadness disappeared.

“Oh, by the way, Mr. Stone. I wonder if I’m mistaken. Or am I mistaken?”


#Life is a lifetime.
#Actually, there are people who help you without you even knowing it.

#scary things #sad things #there are many things in life
#but when you meet a new world.
#there’s something there that you love very much.
#It makes me feel happy.

#Believe in the possibilities.
#It’s not a bad idea to step out once in a while.
# It’s okay because you’re not alone
#Let’s find the blue sky

Episode 2 . The story of the ribbon that I like

[Doorknob-kun and Whimsical Butterflies🎀]

第2話 おきにいりのリボンのお話

A cute butterfly🦋
Doorknob is crazy about his favorite sky-blue butterfly.

But after a while, the whimsical butterfly flew away.
Gradually, Doorknob began to feel lonely and cried.
You don’t realize how important things are until they’re gone, right?

But I can’t dwell on it forever! Yes, Doorknob-kun is now free from the door.

Wipe away the tears and act quickly.
“Let’s go… let’s go…”
Hmmm? What are you doing?

Doorknob-kun made a ribbon that looks just like a butterfly🎀
It became his favorite ribbon.
What are you doing?


#I’ll take care of my own mood.
#You don’t realize what’s important until you lose it.
#Don’t goof around forever.

Episode 3 .  Doorknob-kun and Mr. Stone’s Christmas

[Doorknob-kun and Mr. Stone have become even closer]

第3話 ドアノブくんと石ころさんのクリスマス

Doorknob-kun’s first Christmas 🎄⛄

“What a wonderful sound!
Doorknob-kun dozed off and listened.
A red hat fell from the sky.

When Doorknob-kun was listening to it, a red hat fell from the sky.
It seems that there is an event called “Christmas” in this world.

Colorful and beautiful decorations.
Green and red objects and Santa Claus in a red hat🎅

However, Mr. Stone’s idea of Christmas didn’t come across well to Mr. Doorknob.
But Mr. Doorknob can’t understand what Mr. Stone is thinking about Christmas.

He said, “It’s too convenient for you to make everything your favorite color! Christmas is all about green and red!”

The serious stone got a little upset.
He got angry at Doorknob-kun.

Doorknob usually cries, but today he seems to be stronger. Doorknob-kun, who usually cries, confronts Ishikoro-san, confused by the emotion he has never felt before. Cuckoo😡.

Just then, something white and fluffy fell from the sky.
It was snow.
The temperature of the two people who were in a fury quickly dropped, and
The butterfly brought them a hat.
She seemed to want to lead them somewhere.

When they followed him, they were surprised!
Doorknob-kun’s vision of a beautiful sky-blue Christmas had spread out.

A beautiful tree…”
Doorknob was admiring it.
Doorknob-kun was admiring the beautiful tree, when Mr. Stone began to cry.
I thought there was no such thing as Christmas, but there was.
He seemed to think that he had lied to Doorknob-kun.

That’s not true.”
Doorknob-kun comforted him gently.
Doorknob gently comforts him.

Your present is not sky blue, it’s a beautiful pink color.

The stone roller wanted Doorknob to understand that Christmas is a normal day for him.
Doorknob envisioned his own favorite Christmas.
It would be happy if the two of them could share and respect each other ❄⛄.

But what?
But what? That’s it! That’s it! That’s it! !!!!
I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do it, but I’m sure I’ll be able to do it.
It’s just a transformer…

What happened to the zebra moth? 🍙
