Orange Manga Creator Draws Hey! Say! Jump Band for Facial Cleanser Ad
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Orange manga creator Ichigo Takano provided special illustrations of the Hey! Say! Jump boy band for a collaboration with the cosmetics maker Kosé. Takano's illustrations of the band's members with original female characters appear in promotional images for the collaboration and in a commercial that began airing in Japan on Friday.
Hey! Say! Jump has been collaborating with Kosé since at least 2017. The current collaboration promotes Kosé's various Lachesca products, and the commercial highlights the Softymo Lachesca Sururin Gel Cleansing product. Lachesca's official website is offering a downloadable wallpaper, and a present campaign is offering 2,000 Hey! Say! Jump Quo Cards worth 1,000 yen (about US$9) each.
Takano will launch a new manga titled Kimi ni Nare (Become You) in the June issue of Futabasha's Monthly Action magazine on April 25. The manga was inspired by the band Kobukuro's new song of the same title.
