Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry Gets Collaboration with Tenkaippin Ramen Chain, More
posted on by Amanda Whalen
Hiro Mashima's Fairy Tail is getting collaborations with Tenkaippin ramen, the restaurant Sweets Paradise, and the internet cafe Jijyuu Kuukan to celebrate the new anime film Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry, which opens in theaters in Japan on May 6.
At Tenkaippin ramen, fans will be able to eat "Special Collaboration Donburi" out of bowls with an illustration of a half-dragon Natsu on them. The ramen chain will also be running a lottery event in which fans can win their own Natsu bowls, an invite to the film's opening-day stage greeting event at the TOHO Cinema in Shinjuku, or a themed clear-file set.
The lottery opens April 21 and will run until April 30 for fans wanting the movie premiere tickets and until May 6 for the other two prizes. Tenkaippin did a similar campaign back in August 2015 with Naruto-themed ramen bowls to celebrate the opening of Boruto: Naruto the Movie.
Sweets Paradise will be offering a Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry themed menu from April 24 to May 25 at 13 different restaurant locations. Menu items include "Natsu's Flames Keema Curry Set," "Lucy's Maid-cafe Style Omelet Rice," "Gray's Ice Chilled Sōmen Noodles," "Erza's Mini Parfait," and "Happy's Fluffy Pancakes."
Sweets Paradise will be giving out free Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry coasters with each themed drink order. Beginning in May, they will also be selling keychains (702 yen/ USD $7) and can badges (324 yen/ USD $3).
From May 6 to June 16 at the Jijyuu Kuukan internet cafe chain, customers who bring in ticket stubs from the new film will get a free limited edition memo stand.
Customers who order the "Tonto Donburi," off the the internet cafe's menu will receive one of three different memo sets. A memo set featuring Natsu and Gray will be distributed from May 6 to 19, May 20 to June 2 will be a Lucy and Happy memo set, and June 3 to 16 will be an Animus and Sonya memo set. Fans that collect all of the memos can combine all 3 with the memo stand.
Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry is the second Fairy Tail anime film. The original manga has also inspired two anime series, several OVAs, and spin-off manga. The first anime film, Fairy Tail the Movie: Phoenix Priestess, opened in Japan in August 2012.
