In China, the original "Tyrannosaurus" picture book series, starting with "You Look Yummy!", has reached a total circulation of 21 million copies, making it a widely recognized work alongside its author, Miyanishi. The adaptation of "Here Comes Tyranno!" into an animated series and the release of the 30-second promotional video has been well-received.
