Those One Piece noodle commercials are really popular.
They did a rendition on Vivi, whom I think is a very popular female One Piece character.
In spring, Cup Noodle launched its "Hungry Days" animated ad campaign focusing on the One Piece characters in school uniforms, leaving fans "hungry" for more. Since then, Cup Noodle has released two ads focusing on Zoro and Nami's school days. The third ad, which was released online on Friday, focuses on Vivi and her heartbreaking departure from her friends after transferring to a new school.
The ad shows flashbacks of Vivi's high school life with her Straw Hat friends. When the time comes for her to depart, her friends send her a video of themselves doing the iconic pose from the manga where they raise their arms in the air with their backs turned to Vivi. In this ad, however, they're holding cup noodle packets as a symbol of their friendship.
The 30-second ad features over 50 One Piece characters - see if you can spot all the cameos.
Like the previous ads, manga artist Eisaku Kubonouchi (Chocolat, Carole & Tuesday) redesigned Eiichiro Oda's iconic characters. Kubonouchi also redesigned Studio Ghibli's Kiki, the titular Heidi, Girl of the Alps, and Sazae-san in previous Cup Noodle ads. The ad's music is provided by the band BUMP OF CHICKEN, and the production studio is SHAFT.
In 2017, Cup Noodle launched its "Hungry Days" ad campaign, a series of commercials that starred famous anime characters at the precipice of their youth to invoke a specific, nostalgic feeling. The previous "Hungry Days" campaign concluded with a romantic confession against an apocalyptic backdrop.
This was nothing new. Most people see it coming since it's way too early for Luffy to beat any Yonko. It's not like Bleach where Ichigo climbed quickly up the power ladder and remain there.
Oh the Sea Stone. Law or Strawman said something interesting. In Wano, it's the origin of the Sea Prism.
Yes the sea stone originate from wano.
Wano people are the super craftman of the one piece world. They as samurai make the best katanas, they also makes different types of sea stone objects, including the poneglyph which were madw during the void century.
Yeah, luffy was put in his place. It's 1 thing to be defeated, but to be one shotted is a horrible experience. It reminds you of the fact that, no matter how hard you would have tried, you simply stood no chance
Wasn't sure if we took a detour into another filler arc or mini canon arc. One Piece's cast is way too big. It was good the anime covers other characters briefly of what they are doing concurrently to the main plot.
One Piece isn't dark but the revelation of Absalom's death is too brief. Though, the young kids who haven't watched Thriller Bark won't get much sympathy for his death. Or even older casual fans. I don't remember him much.
Blackbeard appears with his bounty. We haven't seen him for a very long time in terms of anime production. He's a very opportunistic guy, demonstrated in Paramount War where his goons lay the finishing blow to a weaken, worn down Whitebeard to steal the Devil Fruit power. He's waiting for everyone to crush themselves while he steals the King of Pirates title.
He's somehow luring Devil Fruit users and killing them to obtain their powers.

Taka: Sorry to hear that Hungryworld. Dream Been mostly PC. I did use MAC a lot because that one school class had MAC. Not sure what DIO is. I have to say PC since that is I'm mainly using. I'll be present in the weekends.

Taka: My hometown is affected by MLK fever. We celebrate him every Sunday of this month. That's why I'm absent. I wished I get time.

Dream: Taka: Looks like you didn't click on the link in my last comment. You'll get the DIO nod when you click on it.

Master Menos: Dream: I've always been a PC guy anyways. (Yeah, that was funny!)

Master Menos: Sidebar updated! Taka: My turn to scratch your back, Taka. 2019 me got really messed up with the job. @_@

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.
Jan 11, 2020 15:13:09 GMT
Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.
Jan 11, 2020 17:52:00 GMT
Dream: Just completed Chobits. Will get a review up for it at some point this afternoon.
Jan 18, 2020 18:37:22 GMT
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.
Jan 18, 2020 19:48:38 GMT
Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.
Jan 18, 2020 21:32:36 GMT
Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.

Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.
Jan 19, 2020 15:57:41 GMT
Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.
