The two voice actors also left comments about the collaboration:

Aoi Yuki (Kiki) commented:

Since childhood, whether with family or friends, I’ve always used McDonald’s a lot! Recently, I’ve been treating myself to McDonald’s hamburgers on days when I’ve worked hard! It’s a taste packed with fun memories, so it really lifts my spirits. For the role of Kiki, I received direction to perform with an infectious energy, so I approached it with an even more energetic and emotional image! I hope you’ll warmly watch over Kiki’s enthusiastic and forward-looking demeanor. McDonald’s is a place where smiles and happiness are always found whenever you visit. Please feel free to stop by during this period and taste the delicious happiness that Kiki and Jiji are delivering!

Daisuke Hanae (Jiji) commented:

During my student days, there was no McDonald’s in my hometown, so I imagined the taste while watching their commercials on TV. If my past self knew I would be involved in a McDonald’s commercial like this, I’d be surprised! After moving to Tokyo, I became a heavy McDonald’s user, eating burgers three times a week right up until just before this recording! Now, with the European Burgers, I wonder how many times a week I’ll eat them. Of course, I’ll conquer all three items! In the commercial where I play Jiji, I hope the enjoyment comes through from the lively conversation with Kiki. It’s turned out to be a very cute commercial. Look forward to it!

Kiki’s Delivery Service is a 1989 Japanese animated fantasy film written, produced, and directed by Hayao Miyazaki at Studio Ghibli. It is based on the 1985 children’s fantasy novel of the same name by Eiko Kadono. It was first published by Fukuinkan Shoten on January 25, 1985, featuring illustrations by Akiko Hayashi. The book won numerous awards in Japan, and it also received a live-action movie in 2014.

Some of the previous anime collaborations from McDonald’s included ONE PIECE and The Devil is a Part-Timer.
