Good Bye HKO


The last time I was able to log on to Hello Kitty On line was August 2017. All attempts to contact Sanrio Digital to get a status on Hello Kitty Online remains unanswered; therefore, I must conclude the rumors are true that Hello Kitty Online has ended and the servers taken down.

Himouto! Umaru-chan X Marumofubiyori Coincidence?

Marumofubiyori  Also know by his nickname, as Mopu is a one of Sanrio’s latest creations.  He is a young anthropomorphic   Polar Bear living at one of the Zoo Keepers home. He is known for his laziness wanting to just to chill out and sleep in.  While Marumofubiyori has been released in Japan recently Sanrio released subs of the first few videos, in a promotion to release Marumofubiyori items in the US. Like Umaru, both wear hoods or blankets and both are lazy at home, and often scolded by their caretakers for being too lazy.  In one video, Marumofubiyori was tasked to go out to buy a can of curry powder for dinner; instead, he orders it on Amazon.

In other news Aggretsuko, our favorite 20 something death metal singing Red Panda has been picked up by Netflix for a series of 15 Anime epodes. I  Hope they will be good and wonder will this Sanrio X Netflix corroboration mean Netflix will pick Hello Kitty, Friends, and other shows.
