McDonald's Anime

McDonald’s Japan and AKB48 have teamed-up once again to collaborate for a brand new animated short. This new short actually serves as sequel to the short animation from last year. In that short a young girl is recruited by the manager of a McDonald’s restaurant, and is able to work up the ranks while her manager is promoted to a higher position in the company. The young girl becomes manager herself and goes on to hire a prospective new employee. In this new short we get a day-in-the-life from both characters from the previous short in their current positions at the company.

While mainly a recruitment video the amount of heart these animated shorts have is unbelievable. Check it out for yourself below.

    Not bad, but the original commercial is one of the best I’ve seen – it was both charming and relatable. This one was less focused, but still nicely animated.
