An upcoming collaboration has been announced, pairing Jujutsu Kaisen with Sanrio. Merchandise will appear in October. Six Jujutsu Kaisen characters, paired with six Sanrio mascots, will decorate goods such as keychains and pin badges. Sanrio has revealed three pieces of merchandise that fans can buy starting from movie theaters later this year. [Thanks, Game Watch!]
The list of Jujutsu Kaisen Sanrio collaboration characters is below.
- Itadori x Pochacco
- Fushiguro x Badtz-Maru
- Kugisaki x My Melody
- Gojo x Cinnamoroll
- Nanami x Pom Pom Purin
- Sukuna x Hello Kitty
It is unsurprising that Gojo, who consistently makes it into the top three of popularity polls, is paired with Cinnamoroll. The dog is the most popular character in his franchise. If Hello Kitty is the boss of the Sanrio characters, then her pairing with Sukuna is quite logical. These characters will decorate pin badges, keychains, and washi tape.
Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the best-selling manga series in history. The series has 50 million copies in circulation as of May 2021. The anime finished its first season in March 27. It is still available from streaming services such as Crunchyroll. On December 24, 2021, the Jujutsu Kaisen prequel movie will air in Japanese theaters.
The Jujutsu Kaisen Sanrio collaboration illustrations and designs will be shown at a later date. Merchandise will launch in October. The full list will appear in the near future.
