I'm thinking of a comic or cartoon character--rather famous around here, you see her on balloons and such--who is a schoolgirl, either Japanese or (less likely) Taiwanese. She wears her hair short, with bangs across her forehead. She has a round face and red cheeks (drawn as circles). I think there may be a museum in Japan dedicated to her. What is this character's name? Thanks!

Here is how I introduced [Buddhism to] my grandmother when she saw a chenrezig pendant hanging in my car:
Grandmother: Is that Buddha? Are you some kine of Buddhist? (in a sarcastic aggressive tone)
Me: No, it's a Chinese Jesus. (anything with Asian flair to her was chinese)
Grandmother: (tone now changed to happy and excited) Really? I did'nt know chinese had jesus?
