Sanrio heads to SDCC with exclusives of Aggretsuko and more!

Sanrio is coming to San Diego Comic-Con, but there is a new character in town and her name is Aggretsuko.

Sanrio first introduced the character earlier this year as the angry, workaholic red panda who loves beer and heavy metal music. Many fell in love with the relatable character and wanted to see more. Well, now you can! Sanrio will showcase new merchandise of the character, as well as other popular Sanrio characters.

Here are some the characters and products coming to Comic-Con at their booth #4737:

  • Aggretsuko – Sanrio’s newest character in the U.S., Aggretsuko, will be making her Comic-Con debut, with convention exclusive merchandise that will be available for the first time. Aggretsuko is a sweet red panda who works as an office associate of a major trading company in Tokyo.  She works very hard, but like all of us, needs to let out her stress and frustration at the end of the day – which she does with heavy metal Karaoke sessions! Stop by the booth to get your hands on Aggretsuko before anyone else with two convention exclusives – tees in adult unisex sizes and a custom New Era cap. The Aggretsuko Snapchat lens will also make its debut to coincide with Comic-Con.
  • Gudetama – everyone’s favorite lazy egg will be returning to Comic-Con International: San Diego with exclusive convention merchandise including a custom New Era cap and adult tee, as well as the Gudetama Re-Ment Collectible Blind Box Breakfast Set, featuring one of eight Gudetama miniature breakfast settings.
  • hello sanrio – Sanrio’s new multi-character brand made its debut at Comic-Con International: San Diego last year, and brings Sanrio character favorites together for the first time in a fantastical, immersive world filled with fun, friendship and big smiles. Convention exclusives include a limited edition 9-piece enamel pin set, a supercute school bus duffle bag re-issue from last year’s sold out collection, and an adult unisex tee.
  • Hello Kitty – the global icon returns to the convention with select styles from the newly launched Hello Kitty x Crap Eyewear collection. The sunglasses will also be available for purchase at the booth as well as at sanrio.com and crapeyewear.com. Fans can also find Hello Kitty New Era cap exclusive re-issue design that originally launched in 2014.
  • Ai-tatA Tote Bags – continuing in their role as purveyors of authentic Japanese culture, Sanrio will debut the Ai-tatA tote bag. Already a massive hit and streetwear trend in Japan, and previously unavailable in the U.S.,  the Ai-tatA bag is a tote bag featuring a clear vinyl front “pocket” panel that invites fans to celebrate their fandom and show off their style and favorite possessions. Sanrio will offer three designs – Hello Kitty, Gudetama and Aggretsuko. The bags will include a 4 piece “starter pack” of product to begin the customization process.
  • Pyoconoru – these irresistibly cute hanging mini plushes are another pop culture import from Japan. The pyoconoru petite plush are a supercute collectible accompaniment to your desk, shelf or anywhere that their sweet little backsides can hang over the ledge.  Collect all characters including Hello Kitty, Keroppi, My Melody, Gudetama, Pochacco, Badtz-Maru, Cinnamoroll and Pompompurin.

In addition, limited edition Comic-Con products will be featured in the following partner booths:

  • Toynami (Booth #3229):  Sonic the Hedgehog is back again with Hello Kitty! Head to the Toynami booth for convention exclusive Blue Metallic Sonic x Hello Kitty plush, as well as an assortment of additional Sonic x Sanrio figures and plushes available for purchase.
