Collaboration between Nissin Cup Noodles and Attack on Titan

November 28, 2023

This is a collaboration between Nissin Cup Noodles and “Attack on Titan” by Hajime Isayama. It is unique in that they created a new, short story for the promotion of Nissin Cup Noodles by using existing manga/anime characters. These manga/anime images are very familiar to a certain segment of the consumers, but it is even more convincing by using the voices as the original animated shows.
