Yuri!!! on Ice Boys Get Adorable for Sanrio Cafe
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
It's no exaggeration that Sanrio will collaborate with anything, be it aging rock stars or a drag queen competition. The most recent properties are the live-action Fullmetal Alchemist film and busty Nitro+ mascot Super Sonico.
A cute rendition of Ed is always acceptable.
The ice-skating boys of Yuri on Ice are also getting a Sanrio-style makeover for a collaboration cafe in Shinjuku. Victor excitedly dons Pom Pom Purin ears, Yurio, while always a catboy at heart, looks only a little miffed about the Hello Kitty bow in his hair. Yuri Katsuki looks more than adorable with his Pochacco hat.
The cafe will open at Shinjuku Southern Terrace's SHINJUKU BOX restaurant on September 7 and run until October 6. Dishes include the "Yūri and Pochakko's Completely Satasifying, Filling Katsudon," "Victor, Pom Pom Purin & Makkachin's Beet Field Peperoncino," and Yuri and Hello Kitty's Apple & Custard Piro Pirozhki ~With Berry Jam~".
The collaboration will include original goods like acrylic stands, drawstring pouches, and button pin sets. Additionally, customers that order menu items will receive place mats and coasters. Posters will be given out to customers that reserve seating ahead of time.
