"Kiki's Delivery Service," Megumi Hayashibara, Yuki Kaji And Bump Of Chicken All Turn Up For Cup Noodle Ads

This month, instant meal Cup Noodle has been running a youth-themed "Hungry Days" ads where the art of illustrator/manga artist Eisaku Kubonouchi is directed and animated by Masanobu Hiraoka. The first had the voice of the legendary Megumi Hayashibara (Evangelion's Rei, and a large part of the heroines of 90s anime) and the music of Bump of Chicken (Blood Blockade Battlefront, March Comes in like a Lion anime themes).


A follow-up is now showcasing a now 17-year-old Kiki (of Delivery Service fame - the Eiko Kadono novel that inspired Hayao Miyazaki's Studio Ghibli) fame, voiced by Minami Hamabe (leads in live-action AnoHana and Saki), with Yuki Kaji (Attack on Titan's Eren) as Tombo.
