In Animal crossing New horizons, there’s a T shirt called the “Hi Tee” that looks like this.

I can’t seem to find it by drawing on jisho. I assume it’s a greeting based on the name and also since there is a series of “other language hello” shirts like bonjour, hallo, ni hao, and こんにちは.

Seems like it’s used in Chinese. No info in most Japanese resources. A Japanese native I showed it didn’t know what it was.

According to that link, it looks like it’s mostly used in colloquial Chinese to represent English words that sound like “hi”.

Huh, didn’t expect it to be chinese since there’s already a Ni hao shirt. Thanks everyone
