If you’re a “Savage,” now you can say it with your chest. It’s no secret that Megan Thee Stallion loves her some anime; if her animated video for her hit single “Savage” didn’t tip us off, a perfunctory Google search of her name paired with “anime” instantly produces dozen of citations. We’ve even previously documented it here at The Glow Up during Megan’s first “Hot Girl Summer” last year as she created the hybrid character “Todoroki Tina” for a cover story for Paper Magazine.

In fact, anime references are all up and through Thee Stallion’s growing body of work, so it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise that for her second Hot Girl Summer (yes, it’s still on—aren’t you hot under these masks?), she collaborated with Crunchyroll, the world’s most popular anime brand, to create a capsule collection of merch based on her very own animated image for their in-house streetwear line CR Loves.

As the brand told The Glow Up, Megan worked closely with their team on her exclusive “Savage” line from CR Loves. “The collection captures the animated glory of the official ‘Savage’ music video with six exclusively designed pieces: two t-shirts, two hoodies, one long-sleeve shirt, and one tote bag,” they tease. And all you Hotties can pony up for Thee Stallion right now, as the collection is available for pre-order from July 9 to July 20.
