In Hamatora, there's a dancing animal - seems to be a bear - that appears (almost) every episode.

The dancing bear seen in the background

Besides appearing in the background dancing or doing other things that draw attention to him, his figure also appears in certain other circumstances.
For instance, in the first episode we see some stickers of him.

Bear stickers

What is the significance of this dancing bear?
And does he have a name?

  • First person that I know that watches this anime. I so happen to like watching Hamatora. As for your question, not sure. – Izumi-reiLuLu Apr 15 '14 at 9:59
  • Maybe you guys could create tag wiki if you've seen some of it. – Hakase Apr 15 '14 at 15:56

I think it's not a bear, it's a tiger (Tora). And according to wiki his name is Tanker-kun.

For now it's some kind of mascot (no further details), because Hamatora (ハマトラ) means "Beach Tiger". And Tanker-kun always use sailor suit, so for now we can assume he's mascot of Hamatora.
