Hello Kitty X Hooters Restaurants = Innocence Lost

Hooters, the chain restaurant that is built around showing off women's *ahem* assets, is getting an extremely unlikely crossover in their Japanese restaurants as they introduce Hello Kitty elements just in time for Valentine's Day.

Apparently, the Japanese don't feel like characters intended for children should be kept separate from adult and sexually suggestive merchandising, which makes me wonder-where do they actually draw the line?

And were those Hello Kitty "personal massagers" I saw online actually licensed by Sanrio? Ewwwww!

The less you know about Japan's "line", the better. They've got a clear-cut obscenity law (unlike the US "community standards" sillyness) but it's sometimes surprisingly lenient where minors are involved or depicted. (Also relaxed if movies are made for export. Go figure.)

the line is drawn as children dont have the finances to eat at hooters in tokyo. Its very pricey for the crappy food they serve and there is a better restaurant in the same plaza that has ninja's as servers. Or you could go to one of the best turkish restaurants in town with amazing belly dancers (from turkey, not the bean poles from japan that cant shake it).
