posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Chinese streaming platform bilibili is hosting exclusive Re:Zero footage--of the two protagonists enjoying cup ramen. The ad is in Japanese with Chinese subtitles and show Subaru introducing Emilia to Cup Noodles' Chinese brand, Hé Wèi Dào, after a study session. The pair enjoy a cup of the seafood flavor Cup Noodle, China's most popular flavor.
Cup Noodle regularly collaborates with anime series and video games, sometimes with humorous results. The Survey Corps of Attack on Titan fought back against mystery meat in June, reimagined popular anime love stories, and introduced a wacky, multi-level collaboration with Final Fantasy XV.
The Re:Zero original video anime Memory of Snow will open in theaters in Japan on October 6.

Yen Press is publishing the light novel series in English, and is also releasing Daichi Matsuse's manga adaptation of the series, as well as the Re:Zero Ex spinoff light novel series.
