Ok... So according to the creator of hello kitty she's a british school kid who lives just outside London...
I was unaware of this O_o

Anyone else? Or is it just me? xD

I was aware of it, but never really paid it any attention.
It was one of those, "Well...okay then. Whatever you say," reactions.

Hello Kitty still makes anything adorable~

As a guy I never got in Hello Kitty, but the cheap $1 Chinese stores near me always peddled the stuff and kids used to debate if she was a cat or not. I never really cared.


This settles it.

Direct quote from the article: "And the reason Kitty is British? "Hello Kitty emerged in the 1970s, when the Japanese and Japanese women were into Britain," said Yano."

Reverse weeaboo realness.

She's clearly a cat girl then.

Never really cared for her tho, and this is coming from a cat and cuteness lover.

I knew that. I like Hello Kitty, far as bags and wallets.

Wait... this is news?

I thought this was already known? I knew about it back in middle school or so.

I didn't know the British part. But the fact about not being a cat... yeah knew that.
