Vagabond Samurai Manga's Inoue Paints in Cup Noodles Ads

Takehiko Inoue draws Vagabond's Musashi on giant canvas on camera.

Manga creator Takehiko Inoue (Vagabond, Slam Dunk, REAL) personally appears on camera in a set of television commercials for Nissin's Cup Noodles instant ramen. In the "Musashi Tōjō" ("Musashi Appears") ads, Inoue draws a painting of Musashi, the main character of his Vagabond samurai manga, on a giant (3-meter by 1.7-meter or about 10-foot by 6-foot) canvas. Inoue also narrates the commercials, which end with the message, "In this country, there is untapped strength."

The commercials are available for viewing on Nissin's official website in 30-second (middle 500K or high 1MB bandwidth) and 15-second versions (middle 500K or high 1MB bandwidth).

Three cameras filmed Inoue drawing the painting for 12 full hours. He also drew a giant mural of Vagabond on the walls of the new Kinokuniya bookstore in New York City for its opening ceremonies.
