An anime-inspired campaign by anime director Mads Broni and Passion Animation Studios

MullenLowe partnered with Danish director Mads Broni and Passion Animation Studios to create an anime-inspired advertisement for one of UK's favorite restaurant chains, Wagamama.

Called Bowl to Soul, it's based on the brand's affiliation with Japanese food and its founding philosophy that food not only feeds our heart, it "feeds our soul." The ad shows this by demonstrating Wagamama food's restore sensation.

Upon taking her first taste, the ad's heroine tumbles into a magical land filled with streaming ramen rivers, ondulating coriander fields and spice fireworks. That doesn't sound bad. And it's a good way to appeal to those of us who haven't appreciated the magic of "your food will come out when it's ready."

Created by a mixture of hand-drawn and computer-illustrated artwork, the film brings together a wide range of modern, diverse images and characters, each frame being a unique illustration influenced by anime art. MullenLowe…

Anime, what is it?

It's a Japanese word for film or comic book animation. It features large doe-like eyes. It features vivid characters and bright graphics. It could be a comic book used to attract youth and adult audiences.

An anime may feature complex and sophisticated episode-forming storylines. The genre may be horror stories, martial arts, ninjas, romance. It could be space ships and robots fantasy.

'My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising' Breaks Anime Box Office Record

Anime isn't known for American box office success, and when there are successes they appear to be Studio Ghibli fare, Pokemon movies, and other family-friendly features. More mature anime seems to get small releases and thus little chance for blockbuster success. However, Japanese animated films for teenagers and grown-ups are growing at the box office thanks to specialty event-style distribution.

FUNimation Entertainment's latest release, My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising, premiered domestically last Wednesday and reportedly first-placed the box office, grossing $2.5 million on its opening day. The manga adaptation had reached a domestic total of $8.5 million by Sunday, including the official opening-weekend $5.1 million, ranking fourth. Showing at only 1,260 theaters, the movie had the second-best per-screen average of all small theater releases.

Heroes Rising is My Hero Academia's second feature. In the fall of 2018, FUNimation released My Hero Academia: Two Heroes domesti…
