Grownup "Heidi, Girl of the Alps" Characters Featured in New Cup Noodle Anime CM
Following the well-received first one based on Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli’s Kiki’s Delivery Service anime film in June, Nissin Foods starts airing a new anime CM for its popular Cup Noodle brand, featuring the three grownup characters from Zuiyo Eizo’s Heidi, Girl of the Alps TV anime in the mid-1970s.
As with the KiKi’s, the CM is set in the modern-day Japan and the characters, also designed by Eisaku Kubonouchi (Tsurumoku Dokushinryo), are now in their high school age. Tatsunoko Production works on anime production, and BUMP OF CHICKEN’s 9th digital-limited single song “Kinen Satsuei” is again featured in the clip.
Heidi: Anna Ishii (a member of dance/vocal unit E-girls)
Clara: Sora Amamiya (Aqua in KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World!)
Peter: Hiroshi Kamiya (Levi in Attack on Titan)
