It has just been announced that the hit TV anime series Bungo Stray Dogs will be collaborating with Sanrio on a series of joint merchandise, with its first visuals released today! Fans will be pleased to find each of the Bungo Stray Dogs characters in chibi form, re-imagined in adorable pair outfits with a Sanrio character.

The actual items have not been revealed as of yet, but it seems that both Studio BONES and KADOKAWA will be releasing collaboration items under each company’s license with their own take.  The line is mainly aimed at the adult female demographic, and will include items such as can badges and key chains.
