Quickie: Russia 'Borrows' Kagami

In Soviet Russia, Konata is Tsundere for Kagami!


We've seen this sort of thing before, when Haruhi herself was co-opted to sell some kind of Russian candy bar. But whatever Haruhi does, Lucky Star follows, and Danny Choo's keen eyes have spotted another example of anime characters being used to hock Russian products.

Lucky Star's Kagami, newly made into a brunette, appears to be starring on some kind of snack packaging-- I can't help but wonder if it's the same company. I mean, both candies are using a popular anime girl, and both are using red text with white outlining that's given a slightly “scattered” look for the logo...perhaps both of these are the same packaging designer who happens to have a hard-on for anime girls?

Using the letters showing on the "Kagami" wrapper, I googled it and came up with "svetk konffetk" which is a Russian DJ service. That was as far as I could get. According to ANN, the "Haruhi" wrapper is from a Belarussian chocolate waffle.
