Beloved Sanrio mascot character and kawaii culture juggernaut Hello Kitty is throwing her hat into the Virtual Youtuber ring with a new, official Youtube channel.
"Hello Kitty Channel" kicks off on August 30, 2018. In her debut video (above, with English subtitles), Hello Kitty talks about following her dreams, about being nervous but wanting to try new things, and about her mixed feelings with being a "veteran" in a company filled with so many cute characters.
The next episode is scheduled to be uploaded on September 04, 2018, and it will feature Kitty recounting a rakugo-style story of her memories of participating in the "Nanba Takoyaki Angel" advertising campaign.
