Taiwan McDonald’s knows how to extract the moe out of Kawaii! (moe=sexy/appealing, Kawaii=Cute!) They have combined a one two three combo of limited edition Hello Kitty happy meals and plushies, a revamped, re-gendered mascot of ‘Ronnie’ anime style and starting in the New year (that’s now!), maid café McDonalds!

Oh Ronald, Ronald, why didn’t mention being gender conflicted? Transgender Ronald McDonald has worn his mask for many decades and now has left the closet as an utterly enticing ‘Ronnie’ in Taiwan.
And what is more addictive than texting and gives that warming glow like the memories of being medical grade morphine than Hello Kitty? Combine Hello Kitty with a McDonalds meals and you have a serious addiction issue.
The major danger in North America would be the adults trampling the children on the way to collect the whole series.
