A third One Piece Nissin Cup Noodles commercial has made its debut. It is once again part of the Hungry Days line of animated ads that reimagines the Straw Hat Pirates crew as though they were ordinary high schoolers. While the first commercial from May 2019 focused on Roronoa Zoro and, to a lesser degree, Luffy, the focus of this one is Nefertari Vivi and her relationship with Nami and the other “pirates.”
This One Piece Nissin Cup Noodles commercial is only 30 seconds long, but it takes you on a journey. It begins with Vivi introducing herself. She’s a new student at a school, and Nami (forcibly) insists she meets the other members of the “crew” and becomes their friend. We then get to see her spend happy days with Nami, Luffy, Sanji, Zoro, Chopper, and Usopp. (Eating Nissin Cup Noodles is a part of this, naturally.) However, like in the series, their time together is short. At the end, an iconic moment is recreated.
As a reminder, the first commercial focused on Zoro’s training efforts after he was beaten in a kendo match. In case you missed it, here’s that One Piece noodles commercial.
Update: Thanks to DoubleO7 for letting us know about another One Piece noodles commercial. One starring Nami aired back in September 2019.
And here is a more artistic Hungry Days spot briefly showing the designs for each member of the Straw Hat Pirates in this alternate, instant noodle-laden reality.
As far as One Piece video games go, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 will come to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in Japan on March 26, 2020. It will show up on all consoles and the PC worldwide on March 27, 2020.
