Let's first look at the description from San-X!
Sumikko met Real Penguin once again. In this corner of the sea, they met “Umikko” and had lots of fun in the sea together."
In Japanese, sea is "Umi". So "Umikko" is referring to Sumikko of the sea!
Some of the new characters include a clownfish, sea turtle, starfish, jellyfish--and of course a return of "Real" Penguin!
Seagull - Round from eating lots of fish. Can barely fly over the water’s surface.
Jellyfish - Does not want to be swept away so stays in the corner
Sea turtle - Fearful personality. Hides in shell. Admires land turtles.
Clownfish - Tried to come out from the sea anemone but after all it’s nice to stay in the corner..
Chinanago - Tapioca impersonating an eelHere is Mary Bear's video all about the new characters...
