Kana Hanazawa reprises the "Niku Niku Japonesuku♪" song with revised, hamburger-exclusive lyrics
I Love Meat! Zeushi-kun has returned for a special, web-exclusive episode celebrating the art of the Japanese hamburger, and the new episode includes a revised, hamburger-centirc version of the "Niku Niku Japonesuku♪" song performed by Kana Hanazawa.
In this special short episode (clocking in at just under 5 minutes), Zeushi-kun is jealous of the hamburger bento box that Mika-chan's mother prepared for Mika-chan's date with German exchange student Hans. Things get a bit strange when Mika-chan and Zeushi-kun discover that Hans is a slightly 2-dimensional character with a flat personality.
I Love Meat! Zeushi-kun is sponsored by Japan Agriculture and features the voices of Kana Hanazawa as Zeushi-kun, Maaya Uchida as Mika-chan, and Nobuyo Ōyama as Minota. The series began in 2014 as a series of short, animated commercials promoting the Japanese domestic meat industry.
