An accident in the bakery's oven caused a piece of bread to stay in the oven for way too long. Thus Kogepan was born - a piece of burnt bread, having no chance to be sold.

I was having a bad day and came across Kogepan. Watching it really brightened my mood and I found the short stories to be heartwarming. The storyline is simple, but still finds a way to lightly touch on different life lessons. Even if the story is about bread, and all the characters are different kinds of bread, Kogepan can be found relatable as his actions are very human-like.

Character: The main character is a burnt piece of bread. His story is ...
