New collaboration pairs the writerly characters with the classic mascots
The boys of Bungo Stray Dogs have had their cuteness increased exponentially, thanks to a meeting with some Sanrio favorites!
A new collaboration between the two franchises pairs off popular characters, leading to some very cute costume swaps. Thanks to "magical forces" bringing them all together, we now get to see Atsushi Nakajima with Hello Kitty, Osamu Dazai with My Melody, Ryunosuke Akutagawa with Badtz Maru, Chuuya Nakahara with Tuxedo Sam, and Fyodor Dostoyevsky with Cinnamoroll.
There's also a Bungo-style piece of Atsushi and Kitty, with the rest of the duos on the way.
Merchandise featuring this art will be rolled out at Sanrio stores starting this summer.
Bungo Stray Dogs comes back this spring.
