On Monday, Nissin Foods' Cup Noodles brand launched an animated commercial message (CM) series for 2017 titled Hungry Days: Aoharu ka yo. The project, which follows the theme of "youth," was first teased on June 8 with a trailer narrated by Megumi Hayashibara.
The first installment of the series features the protagonist of Majo no Takkyuubin (Kiki's Delivery Service) as a 17-year-old high school witch, four years older than her appearance in the original film. Rock band BUMP OF CHICKEN performs the theme song "Kinen Satsuei" with vocalist and guitarist Motoo Fujiwara composing the song.
Kiki is a 17-year-old high school witch living in Yokohama. In that town, she lives peacefully with her black cat Jiji. She has faint feelings for her childhood friend Tombo who attends the same school as her. One day, by chance, she sees Tombo being confessed to by a junior, and she feels a tug in her heart. Will Kiki be able to deliver her feelings?

that was really cool, I feel like I could watch an actual series of Kiki. The music reminds me of Your Lie in April for whatever reason.
The 30 second version is so much better than the 15 second one on their channel... it would really suck to see the 15 sec one first lol

Didn't bother looking if there was other threads about this since this came up first in google but..
Maybe the original post could be used to track the campaign? Well although evidently it'd be better if the mal page was cleaned up a bit but oh well.
New series starting, it seems?
New one feat. One Piece (Zoro as main character)
