The commercial series “HUNGRY DAYS One Piece” of Nissin Foods “Cup Noodles” in collaboration with “ONE PIECE” has started on air with the final CM titled “HUNGRY DAYS One Piece Choujou Kibasen Hen” (HUNGRY DAYS One Piece Paramount Horse Riding War Chapter) on Feb. 2020.
The story has been replaced by a horse-riding race on a sports day, and the "real face of high school student Luffy" which had not been shown previously is finally revealed.
"HUNGRY DAYS One Piece" is a collaborative anime CM series based on the theme of "One Piece" in a parallel universe, "What if the characters of One Piece lived as modern normal students in the same high school?".
There have been three installments so far; the 1st installment of “Zoro” in May 2019, the 2nd installment of “Nami” in September, and the 3rd installment of “Bibi” in December. The astonishment derived from the youthful adaptation of “One Piece” an anime for teenagers, along with the famous scenes and little stories behind it, have become a hot topic.
In the final episode of the series, "Choujou Kibasen Hen", the tone has changed completely from the previous works. The story of “Paramount War”, which is supported by many fans as being the historical famous scenario in the original anime, has been replaced by a "too hot" horse-riding race on a sports day, expressing a sense of power and realism in a one-cut shooting.
Highlights show popular characters of the series including; “Blackbeard”, who plans to scare the hell out of “Whitebeard” at the sports day, Whitebeard '', the strongest high school student who confronts him, and “Ace'' who supports the white team led by Whitebeard. It is also worth noting that Luffy, who has become a famous figure in the school now, finally reveals his real face as a “high school student”.
In addition, the voice cast includes the same actors of the original anime, including Otomo Ryuuzaburou who will be voicing Whitebeard instead of Arimoto Kinryuu, who passed away in 2019, and Tanaka Mayumi as Luffy. The voice of Kizaru has also been changed since the original voice Ishizuka Unshou passed away in 2018.
Finally, the song “Hungry Pride” by the heavy metal band Maximum the Hormone has been chosen for the music, in order to express the fierceness of the horse-riding race.
"HUNGRY DAYS One Piece Choujou Kibasen Hen" is on air nationwide from Feb. 7, 2020.

Kitou Akari, known for her role of Kamado Nexuko in "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba", and Ishiya Haruki, known for his role of Jiro Yamada in "Hypnosismic -Division Rap Battle-", have recorded few moe lines for "PARM Cookies & Chocolate"'s "#PARM After Meal Report Video-I'll Have You Tonight-", which has been released on Oct. 5.
Kitou Akari voices the goofy playful younger sister Nagomi PARM♪, who is a little straightforward and a little devil, but easy to communicate with. I won't forget when she was watching the anime appealing with a "PARM Cookie & Chocolate" in one hand thinking, "Hey, look at me!".
Women who were satisfied with the rich, thick, melt-in-your-mouth chunky texture say, "It's so delicious, even for me! No, it's absolutely delicious!".
At the end of the video, she says, "I wonder if you and I are compatible with each other? Do you like me? I... love you!"
Kitou smoothly handled the role, commenting, "So it's a simple younger sister-type Nagomi character! I understand!", and clarifying, "What is her age?" It seems that even the staff admired her ability to play various roles. Don't miss the gap between the usual calm Kitou and the playful, straightforward younger sister Nagomi character.
Haruki Ishitani's duality in his performance is a must-have!
On the other hand, Ishiya plays a charming and fun PARM. He innocently tells the woman who opens the package, "I'm different from the usual parm! Look forward to it! I think, my combination of melting ice cream and cookies is the best."
But the next moment another cool personality appears, "Did you know? Yes, I have a rich raw chocolate sauce." The gap between the charming cookies and the cool raw chocolate sauce expresed clearly.
Ishiya stated his enthusiasm in acting, "I want to convey the depth of the deliciousness of PARM through a double-sided role." His great acting of two characters was "expected", but he said that he struggled with winking while saying the decisive lines.
The gap is irresistible to the staff! Many praising voices have been heard.
"#PARM After Meal Report Video -I'll Have You Tonight-" starring voice actors Kitou Akari and Ishiya Haruki will be accompanied by "PARM" starring actor Makishima Teru, who is active on the 2.5-dimensional stage. Available on the official Twitter account and Morinaga Milk Industry official YouTube.
Also, during the "#PARM Cookie & Chocolate" campaign held by "PARM cookie & chocolate", the special movie with selected "want to it" lines by Kitou, Ishiya, and Makishima will be released on Oct. 25.
The 2nd "PARM Gyakushoku Report Video -Koyou Anata o Itadakimasu-" (PARM's Being Eaten Report Video -Tonight I will Have You-) featuring the voice actor Itou Kento (known for his role as Kannonzaka Doppo from "Hypnosis Mic: Division Rap Battle - Rhyme Anima") pretending to be "PARM's Affogato" and also an interview after the recording, has been revealed.
Itou is voicing the broad-mindedness healing type PARM for adults that is able to heal the daily fatigue softly.
Before the recording, Itou commented, "I love this! I can feel the mature feeling pushing in from the first bite!” which shows that it was indeed delicious when he tested out "PARM Affogato".
Then, he commented with the enthusiasm, "I am unsure whether I am broad-mindedness or not, but I want to breathe life into PARM to heal everyone!"
After that, when he entered the recording booth, his soft and gentle expression has become serious. His rare appearance where he keeps repeating, "I'm Parm. I'm Parm. I'm Parm-san." to himself can be seen.
For the "#Noukou Sauce ni Hamatte" (#Addicted to the rich sauce) scene that was chosen based on a vote, Itou had represented too with a passionate "PARM Affogato" feeling via the whisper that is melting.
During the last part of the video when Itou says, "The sweet yet bitter Affogato, I want to have it tomorrow as well", he gave a wink that is filled with the adult's charm, where fans must watch it.
The 2nd special movie with the making of "PARM Gyakushoku Report Video -Koyou Anata o Itadakimasu-" featuring the voice actor Itou Kento, has been released on "PARM" official Twitter account and also Morinaga Milk official YouTube.
