That was pretty freaking beautiful. Too bad it is wasted on a Cup Noodles add, but whatever. It's still pretty. Laughing

Hey, Rooney got less hair dude! Just kidding!
Nice ad!

But honestly as a sidenote, Man U today is boring to watch...

They chose the right guy to handle this, Kazuto Nakazawa is an awesome animator.

I don't know how comparing a 30 seconds ad to a 600 episodes series makes sense, but you might have watched the wrong episodes. There is some impressive action animation and some serious talent working on that series too, although sporadically.

That is awesome. Too bad United was unfair to Shinji Kagawa and apparently only picked him up to try and appease the Japanese market.

The last two matches were not boring, but overall yeah, United has been a terrible watch this season.

There's plenty of football anime. Captain Tsubasa for one being one of the top anime in Europe, Asia, and South America.

Now that's what I call an intense ad. Hell, where were these guys when the World Soccer Cup was up and going? Suddenly, I'm reminded of 'Stephen Chow's 'Shaolin Soccer'. I love short animation ads like this.

For some reason sports Animes are not popular in the west, I doubt most people even know of most of them.

But Captain Tsubasa's old; can't keep relying on decades old anime. We're talking about new generation! Smile

Yeah, since Sir Alex Ferguson left management they are only 7th in the latest Barclay's Premier League table where Southhampton, a team that got relegated down to League one a few years ago, are just below Chelsea at 2nd. A place Man U usually had taken before going 1st. Man City are the Manchester team to watch now.
