By utilizing the theme of sweets in this collaboration with Sanrio, Nyanko-sensei can be seen enjoying a number of adorable moments with Hello Kitty, Pompompurin, Cinnamonroll, Kuromi, and My Melody. While none of the merchandise has been revealed for the Natsume Yujincho x Sanrio collaboration as of yet, some of the designs can be seen below.

Hello Kitty floats in a traditional bowl of oshiruko as Nyanko-sensei relaxes. Nyanko-sensei, who loves all sorts of sweets, sits in a dish of pudding with Pompompurin. Cinnamonroll is resting comfortably inside a bed of kashiwamochi with Nyanko-sensei taking a nap. Kuromi pops out of a taiyaki as Nyanko-sensei prepares to strike and take a bite. My Melody and Nyanko-sensei are looking adorable inside of a glass filled with strawberry parfait.

Sanrio is no stranger to collaborations as they are currently collaborating with the artist Eku Uekura for a line of merchandise, and are also collaborating with Vocaloid idol Hatsune Miku.

Natsume Yujincho can be watched on Crunchyroll. Viz Media is currently publishing Natsume’s Book of Friends under the Shojo Beat imprint.
