We know that Hello Kitty is a human, but we didn’t know is that she’s a ninja, too! A new partnership between Sanrio’s cute cat and her friends and the shinobi of Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto brings all sorts of clothing items to Hot Topic and BoxLunch stores, as well as Sanrio’s own shops.

This collaboration comes on the cusp of 20th anniversary of the Naruto manga being published in Japan’s Weekly Shonen Jump.

Hot Topic has stores in Canada and the United States, but only BoxLunch has physical locations in the United States. Both retailers ship to Canada.
