The upcoming Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway anime film has released a gallery of scene images on their official website.
One of the scenes shows the main character Hathaway Noar is eating at a branch of “Jollibee,” a fast-food chain brand in the Philippines.
Other Jollibee-related items are also featured in the image such the “Chickenjoy” cardboard box, a poster with an image of “Yum Burger” and “Jolly Spaghetti” and the glimpse of the mascot.
In another image, a “Chickenjoy” cardboard box is also seen and a water bottle with similar design to Summit Mineral Water.
Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway is the first in the three-part anime film series based on a series of novels created and written by Yoshiyuki Tomino. The series is set in U.C.105 or seven years after the end of the Second Neo Zeon War.
It follows Hathaway Noa, who now goes by the name Mufti Nabiyy Erin, as he starts a terrorist group to stop the abuses of the Earth Federation.
The film was originally scheduled for release in Japan on July 23, 2020 but it was delayed to May 7, 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It became a trending topic among local anime fans after some scenes in the film will feature the Philippines, particularly Davao.
The first film is expected to be shown in other countries in the Southeast Asia region including the Philippines.
