Sanrio is one of the most family-friendly brands in Japan, as it appeals to kids and adults alike. However, their new collaboration with the ever-sultry Super Sonico has certainly raised eyebrows. The collaboration celebrates Sonico’s 10th birthday with a special event in the Sanrio Puroland theme park. But hey, Sonico did cover up those assets of hers…
Now, Nitroplus’s mascot character is once again posing with one of Japan’s most iconic mascots in Hello Kitty. And yes, she’s still pretty much covered up and family friendly, so don’t worry guys!
While she does cover up those large assets every now and then, many said that she really went the distance for the Sanrio visual. The collaboration includes also teaming up with Puroland’s Cosplay 8 event. The Super Sonico Cheer Team will also be attending the event, including their captain, seiyuu Minori Shiraishi. Actress Ayano Yamamoto, who’s also the Cheer Team’s Vice Captain, will also be attending. The two will be hosting a Super Sonico fan event inside the theme park. And after the talk show, they will then host a fan meeting, followed by a live concert by Yamamoto and a Sanrio character. This will all happen on 21st October.
And yes, since this is a collaboration, Puroland will also be distributing exclusive Sonico x Hello Kitty merchandise. Now that’s two of Japan’s most popular mascot characters collaborating for those merch!
