So... Anime.
#21
Yeah sure. It's a shameless cash-in. Still... a Nissin ad features Kiki and Tombo from Kiki’s Deliver Service in a 30s short, 4 years later.





Why, you might ask.

Why, not?

I really don't get the connection between the company and the anime... But I like the noodles they sell as well Kiki and Tombo (oh my, they're adorable together...), so I don't start asking questions.

It's basically a marketing gimmick. In a sense, it's a variant of the Japanese Eyeball-Grabbing advertisement - bankroll a video of a popular character and hope some of the goodwill sticks to the brand.

Nissin is doing a "Hungry Days" ad campaign, which focuses on the theme of Youth and Spring.

The Ghibli branding draws viewers, who, like me are likely to share the video because... well... Kiki. In turn, they hope that the Nissin label sticks.

Looks like they are somewhat successful with this attitude, because now I feel like buying one or two of their things again after I haven't done so for a while.

If the thread isn't dead yet, I'd like to vouch "Kimi No Na Wa" or "Your Name" in english.
It's currently the nr.1 film in making money in Japan. And nr.4 worldwide. It's definetely a film you can watch on a day with free time.

 Has anyone else watched it? I'd love to hear opinions, niche or not.

Oh? Nope, I haven't watched it yet, but from what I saw that movie definitely sounds promising.

 If/when you watch it, I'd love to hear your comments on the art and concept. Heart

I'll keep that in mind! For now, hoping that it'll be released here where I live soon, there seems to be no official date yet.

I think it's been released in Europe for a long time now. not too far from a year now. There are a few places you can watch online as well, I don't have any examples though. Actually, I'm not sure there's any legal places to watch it online for free... so, take your time.

thx in advance.
