I couldn’t really find too many details about this other than it is coming out on Feb. 26. Not sure the platform, but I am guessing it might be a series of short episodes either released to youtube or twitter.

    After getting tired of seeing too many WcDonald’s, McDonald’s decided to put their own name in it lol.

      TIL that the Japanese government represents a healthy diet through a spinning top:

      Spinning top of food

      So, maybe something like an evil, healthy Beyblade?

        That would be an interesting villain

        I keep thinking Nestle should be a villain in the crossover too

    Sorry if addressed in the link (I’m not willing to visit Twitter) – but, like, actually McDonald’s themed? Or are they just sponsoring a show (like P&G, etc. have done for ages)?

    If the former, I guess there’s some precedence with the KFC visual novel and Isekai Izakaya and such, but that still sounds pretty weird…

    Edit: I went back and checked and it looks like McDonald’s was also a sponsor on the show I remember P&G from (i.e. season 1 of Bleach), so there’s precedence for them sponsoring Studio Pierrot’s shows too – I just don’t usually pay that much attention to it, I guess.

      From the quick, 15 second video they posted, it looks like it is a McDonald’s themed series. I don’t see Ronald or any other of the corporate characters, so it is different from the KFC version of this. However, it does show original characters doing things like putting fries in a McDonald’s branded container and eating nuggets. So…yeah…that’s a thing.
