Hello Kitty still capturing hearts in Asia after 35 years

To mark the 35th anniversary of the adorable feline character, Sanrio Co, the creator of Hello Kitty characters, is offering a stellar lineup of events including an exhibition of Hello Kitty designs in Tokyo and similar events in Hong Kong and South Korea.

At the Daimaru Inc department store in Tokyo, visitors can take a trip down memory lane at the ‘‘Hello Kitty Art Exhibition’’ featuring Hello Kitty designs from 1974 to 2008.

Ray’s Take: you know that was one of Japan’s secret brainwashing programs developed all the way back in 1942, right? There’s a piece of dark history for you! I mean, the popularity of this in Asia is simply infathomable. Anyone can decode the messages hidden in the graphics? SAVE US!!!

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.
