Gakuen Babysitters Just the Latest to Get Sanrio-ified
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Both Fullmetal Alchemist and Fate/Grand Order got Sanrio rebranding with adorable merchandise. The next series added to the line-up is Gakuen Babysitters, which makes sense given that it stars a bunch of roly poly toddlers.
The collaboration was first announced in the January issue of LaLa magazine on Friday. The teaser image shows the characters in costumes of various popular Sanrio characters, including Midori as Kuromi, Kirin as My Melody, Kotarō as Cinnamoroll, Takuma as Keroppi, Kazuma as Tuxedo Sam, and Taka as Pompompurin. Details on the collaboration project are still under wraps.
The anime will premiere in Japan on Sunday, January 7. The story centers on the brothers Ryūichi and Kotarō Kashima. Ryūichi is in high school and Kotarō is still a toddler. After their parents are killed in a plane crash, the two brothers find themselves living with the chairwoman of the Morinomiya Academy, who herself lost her son and daughter-in-law in the same accident. The chairwoman, however, has one stipulation for the brothers in order to live with her: Ryūichi has to work at the academy's daycare center as a babysitter.
