Rero Rero refers to a memorable scene in the popular long running Shōnen manga series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure wherein the character Kakyoin Noriaki is licking a cherry in an unusual manner. Rero Rero (レロレロ) is the sound effect Kakyoin makes as he rolls the cherry around with his tongue.
The scene originated in the 137th chapter of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure titled Cannibalistic Temperance (Yellow Temperance (2) in the Bunkoban version) which was published in 1990. In the scene, antagonist Rubber Soul who was impersonating as Kakyoin attempted to kill main protagonist Jotaro Kujo by pushing him off a building. After failing to do so, Rubber Soul explained that he was just pretending and proceeded to lick a cherry in an unusual manner (shown below, left). Later in chapter 139, it is revealed that the real Kakyoin also eats his cherry in the same unusual manner, prompting Jotaro to be disgusted. The scene was later animated in the 9th episode of David Production's adaptation of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders which first aired on May 30th, 2014 (shown below, right).
The scene has become the subject of fanart and parodies on sites such as DeviantArt and Pixiv.
