ReBUTTal: Is Anime REALLY Anti-Pepsi?

Contrary to popular belief, the ButtBuddz is not actually a weeaboo establishment; For as much as we write about, say, Hidamari Sketch, we also like western stuff such as Swing You Sinners! as well. Anime (and by extension, anime styled video games) is only one piece in the pie that is “Stuff the Buttbuddz Like”, and a fairly small piece at that.

However, a recent article that could be considered our first ever “Bruticle” (term coined by Nobaddy) had been posted, and well… It’s no What Kaiserreich: Legacy of The Weltkrieg’s Second American Civil War can tell us about the world we live in today, to say the least. It’s time to bunk some myths about Pepsi and anime, or in the very least, consider this article -the very article you’re reading right now- a critique of some kind.

First off is the What Japan Thinks chart/poll mentioned in the original article; Luckily for everyone here, What Japan Thinks is a very good source. In fact, it’s such a good source that it even mentioned its sampling of the population and the statistics involved!

“Between the 29th of August and the 1st of September 2008 464 members of the CLUB BBQ free email forwarding service completed a private online survey.” 

For reference, the amount of people who live in Japan is about 127 million people. The poll only represents the opinions of a mere 0.000003% of the country’s population. How can one say that it represents Japan’s opinion on Pepsi as a whole? Even if turns out that there aren’t a lot of Pepsi drinkers in Japan, Pepsi still makes non-anime-related efforts for their market such as their beloved mascot Pepsi Man, and all sorts of fun, Japan-exclusive flavors such as Pepsi Sakura, Pepsi Salty Watermelon, Pepsi Blue Hawaii, and Pepsi Mont Blanc, among many others.

This is only a small sample of the many Pepsi varieties that have been released in Japan over the years.

This leads into our next topic; Pepsi’s advertisement in the anime Tiger & Bunny. First off, judging an anime (or any piece of media, for that matter) by its name is like judging a book by its cover; It’s not an accurate way to tell if the show is good or not.

Rather than talking about the title, let’s get onto the show itself; The lady featured in the advertisement, Blue Rose, is actually sponsored by Pepsi for the entire anime. She’s also a superhero, so she’s basically the anime equivalent of Pepsi Man.

“The taste that goes first, Pepsi NEX!”

While I haven’t actually seen Tiger & Bunny either, if we calculate the review scores to get an mean-average score for the show, it’s apparently as good as Batman Begins. (Or at least Rotten Tomatoes and IMBd’s opinion on the film.) This proves that Pepsi only approves the finest productions for its sponsorships. If you want to see what a truly BAD sponsorship looks like, perhaps we should have a look at the works of Pepsi’s rival company, and the drink of brutes everywhere, Coca Cola.

CASE STUDY: MAC AND ME.

While Coca Cola brags that it’s appeared in many, many famous films over the years, the first film that comes to the mind of the average person is the 1983 film, Mac and Me. To say that Coca Cola sponsored it would be a severe understatement; It’s Coke in film form!

Image result for mac and me
This is your body on Coca Cola. (And your brain as well, seeing as he’s trying to drink Coca Cola out of the ground. No, I’m not making that part up; That is actually what happens in the film.)

The film is about aliens that require Coca Cola to survive. While the plot of the film is basically E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, you would never be able to tell due to the sheer amount of Coca Cola and McDonald’s product placement in the film. (Did I mention that the film really likes Coca Cola?)

There isn’t a lot more to say about Mac and Me, so we’ll be moving onto the next topic: Western Animation. I will give “Why anime is Anti-Pepsi” some credit here with its Spongebob Squarepants screenshot that points out that the show is pro-Pepsi; It’s the most compelling argument in the article, and provides actual evidence for its claims in the form of the screenshot itself. (Although Spongebob being pro-fish shouldn’t come to as a surprise to anyone, seeing as it’s located under the sea to begin with.)

What IS a surprise though, is that they had a promotion with Pepsi that at least got to concept art level. Spongebob really is pro-Pepsi!

Clearly, while Spongebob and every other fish-related cartoon are pro-Pepsi/pro-fish and therefore good, does it hold up for the rest of the western animation? I’m sure the “patriots” at Hanna-Barbera would like to disagree with you.

If that’s not an excuse to bring our scooby_doo_desecration channel back, I don’t know what is, and yet animes supposedly the anti-Pepsi one… As far as finding pro-Coke stuff for both types of animation went, (not counting fan-made videos for either, because there were A LOT of those; the same thing applies with pro-Pepsi videos, too) they actually had about the same amount of Coca Cola sponsored content; It doesn’t matter if you’re The Simpsons or One Piece, you’re still not immune to being an advertisement for Coke.

Ultimately, anime is just as capable of being pro-Pepsi as any western medium can be. Likewise, western media is still capable of being pro-Coca Cola and unpatriotic. Anime is still part of Pepsi, and by extension, the Buttbuddz; Whether you love it, or hate it, it’s here to stay.

If you’re not into anime though, there’s still plenty of other content to enjoy here at the Buttbuddz. (Although I’d suggest checking out our YouTube channel instead, as it’s more balanced content-wise than Butt with a Blog currently is; The last few articles haven’t been helping with the over-abundance of anime on the blog at all.)

Why anime is Anti-Pepsi

Hello Pepsi fans, welcome to another great and informative Buttbuddz article. Now you may have gotten the impression one way or another that the Buttbuddz is some kind of weeaboo establishment, but that is quite the opposite of the truth. Today I will be exposing anime as Anti-Pepsi, and thus Anti-Buttbuddz.

First, here’s an enlightening chart from whatjapanthinks.com, which I’m sure is a very reliable source for information about Japan, so what I’m about to show you is genuine.


As you can see a majority of Japs are COKE DRINKERS with only 16% drinking Pepsi, and I’m pretty sure there are more Pepsi drinkers even in Georgia than 16%.

That’s quite an unfortunate statistic for anime, but you may say to yourself “well i watched the buttbuddz top 10 anime part 2 and it says tiger & bunny is sponsored by pepsi”, which is true, but you may also recall that video noted that Tiger & Bunny is a terrible name for an anime, which probably means it’s a terrible anime.

Now why would a terrible anime have Pepsi in it? Simple: this anime is trying to ruin the reputation of Pepsi. That’s right, the weebs are using the good name of Pepsi and attempting to twist it into something much darker.

Hearing this information may have put a damper on your mood as you think “has anime contained subliminal messages for coca cola this entire time?”, now that I’m not sure of but I think for reasons I am about to explain western cartoons are actually the best alternative to anime for both Pepsi drinkers and fish supporters.

This snapshot from a season 2 episode of Spongebob Squarepants holds a very noticeable Pepsi logo which has a wave on it since this is the version of Pepsi that is served to fish. As we know, there are many great cartoons which feature fish, as is proven in the Top 10 Animated Fish Buttbuddz video. If that’s not proof that cartoons are sponsored by Pepsi, I don’t know what is.

In conclusion: Anime is very Anti-American and Anti-Pepsi, where western animation is very patriotic and supports fish and Pepsi.

What Kaiserreich: Legacy of The Weltkrieg’s Second American Civil War can tell us about the world we live in today

What’s up Pepsi fans today I’m going to show you the shocking parallels between Kaiserreich: Legacy of The Weltkrieg’s Second American Civil War and the Second American Civil War in our timeline.

How’s America? Broken

As you can see there’s a lot going on in this picture but we can pick out some very important details.

  • Atlanta is the capital of the nasty American Union State, which proves that Coca Cola (whose headquarters are in atlanta) is an extremely un-american beverage, only consumed by reactionaries and brutes
  • Chicago is the capital of the Combined Syndicates of America, proving that Chicago is the biggest dumpster fire in America and that Illinois is actually full of communists
  • Before Canada steals New England, America owns New York (home of pepsi) which proves that true Americans drink Pepsi over all else
  • The illegals who are also commies jump over the border and steal not only America’s jobs, but also her oil due to the lack of a wall (i made a trump joke please clap)
  • Even MORE proof that the west coast is the worst coast?
  • By stealing Alaska and New England, Canada shows their true colors, just like how in our timeline Canada showed their true colors by making me pay $41 for a case of beer and not letting me bring my guns over the border
  • You may not see it because this is a brutish map but Hawaii secedes and sometimes joins Japan so that’s probably symbolic of something but I’m not sure what

As you can see there is a lot going on in America in the world of Kaiserreich but how does it relate to the America you live in? Well behold:

That’s right, as shown in this only the states of the American Union State and Combined Syndicates of America support coke, while the rest of the United States supports Pepsi. In fact, Colorado has an 80% approval rating for Pepsi, could this mean Pickles is a closeted Pepsi drinker????
