Nissin Cup Noodles is continuing their ongoing Hungry Days with Japanese rock band, Bump of Chicken. Their ongoing campaign turned One Piece’s Straw Hat Pirates into normal high school students, and their previous one featured Nami. Now, Nissin has released their latest commercial, and it once again features the One Piece characters. It also features the song “Kinen Satsuei” by Bump of Chicken.
This new commercial takes a general look at the collaboration. Specifically, it’s all about the daily lives of the “normal” versions of the Straw Hats, with Luffy gathering more members of his… crew.
Nissin’s Hungry Days campaign re-imagines anime and manga characters into normal people. They previously turned characters from other series, including Kiki’s Delivery Service and Sazae-san, into high schoolers. And just in case you were wondering, Shaft (Monogatari, Madoka Magica, Nisekoi), animated these commercials, with Eisaku Kubonouchi (Tsurumoku Dokushinryo) responsible for the character designs.
Nissin promises to release more of these commercials, though they haven’t revealed who is next on the agenda just yet. So, which One Piece character will be getting his/her ramen spotlight next?
