Limited-edition "Adult Snack Series" will make you go "Pshuuu" starting in June of 2016
Wakakozake, a 2015 TV anime based on the manga by Chie Shinkyu about a young woman enjoying tasty food and drink after a long day at the office, is teaming up with Japanese snack-makers Iwatsuka Confectionery Co. Ltd. for a limited time promotion focusing on snacks for grown-ups.
The collaboration involves new promotional artwork for the "Adult Snack Series", which includes original 4-panel Wakakozake comics on the back of the packaging. A TV commercial featuring voice actress Miyuki Sawashiro reprising her role as Wakako Murasaki was also released.
The "Adult Snack Series" includes 4 varieties of deep fried rice crackers: shrimp crunchies (spicy shrimp curry flavored), black-pepper shrimp (tangy shrimp and pepper flavored), salty wasabi, and edamame arare (green soybeans, rice, and soy sauce flavored). Each variety will be available for a 3 month period beginning in June of 2016.
