It is not the first time Naruto and Hello Kitty’s friends make a collaboration, but without a doubt this will cause us more tenderness, since it is about a collection of Funko Pop! figures in which we will see Sanrio characters characterized as some of the protagonists of the Masashi Kishimoto series.
Starting in October we will be able to see some figures like Pochacco dressed as Kakashi Hatakeas well as Chocolat as Sasuke Uchiha, Badtz-Maru as Itachi Uchiha, My Melody as Sakura Haruno and finally Hello Kitty as Naruto Uzumaki.
Likewise, it was announced that Chocolat Sasuke is an exclusive to the FYE store, while Hello Kitty Naruto, which also glows in the dark, can be purchased at Target.

It should be noted that the first time we saw a collaboration between the two characters, it was in a clothing collection from BoxLuch and Kidrobot, in which there were also stuffed animals of Hello Kitty and her friends, who dressed up as Naruto along with some cute keychains.
In recent years, we have seen Sanrio perform crossvers and collaboration with other anime franchises, which included a collection of Funkos from My Hero Academia and the Hello Kitty friends, which were released last year.
So far the collection of Naruto It is only in pre-sale in official stores in the United States, but hopefully very soon they can even reach Amazon Mexico and have Hello Kitty friends as characters of the Village of the Leaf.
