You think you like Hello Kitty?

Everyone loves the iconic Hello Kitty a little bit. Strangely, I don't think I've encountered anyone that outright hates the frozen faced feline. In fact, most ladies I hang out with are bound to have a couple Sanrio goods o...

A Look @ Hello Kitty: Delicious!
by Kristina Pino

The first volume in the Hello Kitty (reviewed) series published by Perfect Square was all about travel, and it didn't disappoint; we went all over the world and beyond. This second volume promised to have our mouths watering, and once again, it didn't disappoint; I think I have cavities.

Jacob Chabot and Jorge Monlongo return and are accompanied by Ian McGinty and Stephanie Buscema for a whole new set of adventures featuring Japan's favorite feline (move aside, Maru). All of the stories are food-related, though that isn't a stretch in Hello Kitty's cake-filled world under regular circumstances.

We really get the short end of the stick when it comes to being American and appreciating cutesy Japanese foods. Where could I go in Kentucky to hit up a My Melody-themed cafe with pink noodles and gorgeous roll cakes? I coul...

A Look at: Hello Kitty: Here We Go!
by Kristina Pino

Today is the day that Japanator recommends you buy a Hello Kitty comic. Things sure are goofy around here.

Hello Kitty: Here We Go! is the first volume in a collection of short comics chronicling the many adventures of the world's most famous cat with a pink bow. She travels all over, even through time and space, for all kinds of reasons.

In reading this comic, I've discovered that Hello Kitty wears many hats. She's a friend, first and foremost, but she's also an astronaut, a secret agent, a photographer, an avid reader with a hyper-active imagination, and who knows what else. True to the premise of the character in the first place, Hello Kitty is basically you and me.
