posted on by Karen Ressler
The anime studios Robot and Colorido animated a third commercial for Marukome, a food company best known for its Ryōtei no Aji (First-Class Flavor) miso products. The 30-second and 90-second versions of the "Ryōtei no Aji Cup Miso-Shiru Yashoku-hen" (Ryōtei no Aji Brand Cup Miso Soup: Late-Night Snack) ad are streaming on Marukome's website, and will debut on television on February 22.
Girl (Kaoruko Negishi): Mom?
Girl: Mom, is it raining?
Girl: Lately, I just can't talk to dad.
Girl: I'm going out.
Mom (Akemi Nagayama): Oh, it's early, isn't it?
Dad (Tadashi Wakabayashi): How was the test?
Mom: The usual.
Dad: Lately, I just can't talk to my daughter.
Girl: I'm tired.
Mom: That girl is always working late into the night. It's tough to be a student preparing to take a test.
Girl: Oh, that's thoughtful.
Girl: Mom, thanks for the light night snack last night.
Mom: Huh? What's that?
Dad: I was a little hungry... would you like to eat, too?
Girl: Dad's onigiri were misshapen, but his miso soup was warm.
Dad: Between the Okaka and the apricot, which do you like?
Dad: Let's rock paper scissors for the first one.
The second short commercial premiered in October:
Sister 2: Papa!
Dad: Thanks for coming.
Narrator: A father's daughters came to his apartment away from home.
Dad: Don't you guys have too much luggage?
Sister 1: It's a secret!
Sister 2: A secret!
Mom: Oh, that luggage... Well, I wonder what it could be.
Dad: Oh come on...
Mom: Huh? Papa's favorite things?
Sister 2: We're gonna make a feast!
Sister 1: Yeah!
Sister 2: There we go!
Dad: Huh? A feast?
Mom: Hm... Well, I guess it would have to be a fluffy and sweet omelette...
Sister 2: An omelette!
Mom: Hamburger steak with lots of onions!
Sister 2: Hamburger!
Dad: Are you two OK on your own?
Dad: You know what, maybe it would be best if I helped-
Sister 1: Papa, you sit down.
Sister 2: Sit down!
Mom: For the rice, make it a little on the hard side...
Sister 1: Hard...
Dad: They sure got bigger when I wasn't looking...
Sister 1: Because I don't think papa has eaten anything good.
Girl: That's why we're making him a feast, right?
Sister 1: Right!
Sister 1: I'm so sorry...!
Dad: The making of the food was a mess. But...
Dad: Yeah, it's delicious. Tastes like Mom's.
Sister 1: Dad, do your best at work, OK?
Dad: Y-yeah. That's good.
