Here’s another post covering those wacky Japanese animated commercials.
Green tea is consumed regularily in Japan, so there are commercials for it. Here’s one
A series of commercials from the 1970s for chicken meat. Nothing’s more marketable than showing cartoon chicken happily serving cooked remains of their kin to little kids.
A 1985 ad for Chugoku Shimbun newspaper, serving Chugoku region in Hiroshima.
From 1989, it’s another ad for a newspaper, this one is for Asahi Shimbun, one of the national newspapers in Japan. The ad features characters from “Gatapishi”, a 4-koma comic strip by Shunji Sonoyama (creator of “Gyatoruzu”) that was running in the newspaper at the time.
A TV series based on “Gatapishi” was later produced by Shin’Ei Doga, airing on TV Asahi (Asahi Shimbun owns about 25% of the network) from 1990 to 1991.
Some of the PSAs from Japanese television. Some of them have really unusual drawing styles.
