About this app

Looking for a way to customize your phone with cute anime and game characters? Look no further - get this app!

Shimejis are animated characters that bring life to your phone's screen, appearing on top of other apps. With Shimeji, you can add a personal touch to your device and enjoy their entertaining presence while using your phone or waiting for games to load. Prepare to captivate your friends, as they'll want to have Shimeji on their phones too!

Worried about distractions? No problem! Simply press the pause button from the notification to temporarily make them disappear. If they interfere with typing, use the convenient keyboard icon to position them above the keyboard. And don't worry about battery life, as all Shimeji automatically stop when you turn off the screen.

Our app boasts a vast collection of hundreds of characters from anime, K-Pop, video games, TV series, and pop culture. We regularly add new characters, so be sure to check out what's fresh and exciting. Additionally, Shimeji can also be enjoyed as a live wallpaper, allowing you to pair them with your own background.

Customize your experience by adjusting the size and animation speed of the Shimeji characters through the user-friendly settings menu.

Help us achieve our goal of becoming the number one application in customization! Try it out today and share your honest feedback by leaving a review.

For more information about the talented artists behind these characters, please check the in-app Credits section.

It's decent. The outer bounds of my phone's screen (Galaxy Z Fold5) aren't detected properly in phone or tablet mode so when some Shimeji are climbing up the sides it doesn't sit them at the correct spot (so half their body might be visibly cut off for example). Dunno if this is an issue on all phones or just mine. Also I wish they could hop onto and climb apps and widgets on my home screen.

I've had this app for a few years now(since 2018) but haven't really seen much in terms of improvements aside from the search bar... As I once stated, it would be nice to see more characters available, and perhaps less duplicates, to choose from. It makes me wonder if the problem lies with finding willing artists or if it's something else? I still love the app and plan to keep it, but I feel the need to lower my 5 star of it to a 3 for now...

This personalization is so cute!! I'm so happy I found out about this app! The little characters are cute and they're interactable! The upgrades weren't even a bad deal either. Now my screen has 6 little cuties playing on my screen! I love it! Just a suggestion but maybe if you added animations where the characters interact with each other like helping each other up after falling or characters chasing each other? Oh, and please add more characters! More characters would be awesome!!
