It may lose me some macho points to confess how much I love Badtz Maru, Hello Kitty and many of the other Sanrio characters. On the other hand, when you have little to lose, why not? Actually, freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose. Or, maybe being brave enough to put this news out there shows just how strong and manly I really am. Or, who cares.....
The truth is, no one saw quite how big and icon Hello Kitty would become, but she is now one of the most popular and recognizable cartoon characters in the world. Nov. 1st was her birthday.
