The popular character Robin Mask from Yudetamago's Kinnikuman manga and anime is starring in his first television commercial. The live-action ad promotes Pitta Mask, Arax's face mask that protects wearers from breathing in pollen, especially during allergy season. The ad premiered in 30- aand 15-second lengths on Friday, and a special movie on the making of the commercial (with no CG used) was already streaming on Arax's YouTube channel:
Robin Mask has appeared as a major character in the manga and anime since their early days. He was originally a rival for the title character, but the two gradually formed a deep friendship as they battled side-by-side. His signature moves are the Tower Bridge and Robin Special. In last year's Chōjin Sōsenkyō character popularity contest, he placed second, only below Warsman and well above Kinnikuman himself (#7).
