AKB48 x Hello Kitty Collaboration

Two of Japan's biggest icons, AKB48 and Hello Kitty, will be working together. They will be introducing a new series of products called "AKB48 x Hello Kitty".

Products sold are mostly stationaries and other novelties like notebooks, files and towels. Each product will come in Team A, Team K and Team B versions. (no Team 4? what's with that?). These products will only be sold in specific Sanrio stores in Japan.

They will go on sale some time in early august, specific date not announced. However at the Sanrio Puroland you can get them earlier starting July 26th, where the product launch is taking place. Several AKB48 members are to attend the product launch, no specific names yet.

Wow I didn't know the Hello Kitty craze is still on in Japan. It ended like 10 years ago here in Singapore. I am told that Hello Kitty goods are incredibly expensive. Hold on to your wallets!
