Airu x Hello Kitty – Monster Hunter Mash Up

Posted in Stuff, Wonder Festival by tokyobling on August 13, 2011

When you have successfully merged yourself with the cat herself, Hello Kitty, you have officially entered a new and elevated rank in the pantheon of characters and cultural phenomena! Latest to achieve that honor is the cat from the hugely successful Monster Hunter game, Airu! Airu went from being a rather bland pet character in the online role playing game to becoming a huge character in itself, spawning hordes of games, toys, spin offs, comics etc. Capcom even created a game based on just this cat character called Airu Village (you can see the trailer at Youtube).

Here’s a photo of Airu and Hello Kitty mashed up, as well as some plushies that were on sale in the Capcom booth at the latest Wonder Festival! I don’t have time to play the games, but I just love this cat! By the way, I hope you didn’t miss all the other Monster Hunter related posts I have done, over here, here and here.

      Death match perhaps? (^-^;) There’s an Airu x Hello Kitty event right now at the Sanrio world here in Tokyo. Haven’t been there though.

        It fine by me, it’s just it is too much pinkness for me:Dbut since it’s a cat, I can’t hate it I guess eitherXD

          Haha… can something be too pink? After living in Japan for a long time, I have decided that the answer is no! (^-^)
