Popular voice actors Kensho Ono and Saori Hayami appeared in the new commercial for Nissin instant noodle brand. Set during the Taisho period, Ono voiced a young man who can be seen savoring a bowl of Donbei noodles, while Hayami was a fox who got jealous of the young man eating noodles. The direction and character design for the commercial were done by Japanese artist Taishi Mori. Studio Coloride (Drifting Home) animated the commercial, which aims to promote Nissin’s Donbei Kitsune Udon noodles.
Mori also posted some concept art of the fox character, stating that he did his best doing this work on top of his current manga work. He is known for manga titles such as Radiation House (2015), Kyou no Asuka Show (2009), and Asoko de Hataraku Musubu-san (2017).
