I have no issue with anime being used as a medium to advertise something. I see why they do it - anime has been known to appeal to all demographics. So what happens when I look at how oolong tea, Sanrio and Donald Trump are being presented?
If you had told me this time last year that everyone was going to be obsessing over a single Sanrio character, I would have laughed in your face. However, here we are - it's 2018 and everyone is obsessing over a red panda.
