"Hungry Days" is an advertisement campaign created by Japanese food company Nissin Foods to promote their instant noodle brands. Nissin collaborated with One Piece to release a series of animated commercials from May 2019 to February 2020.[1]

Four commercials have been released, with each of them featuring One Piece characters in a modern Japanese high school setting with the tagline One Piece: Youth (ONE PIECE 青春 Wan Pīsu Seishun?) Each commercial has two versions: a full 30-second version and a shortened 15-second version. The animations for the advertisements were also later compiled into a music video for a song by BUMP OF CHICKEN.

He continues to train as the seasons pass, and one day while training on the school roof he collapses from exhaustion, declaring that he would never lose again while holding his bamboo sword up like he did in the Baratie Arc.

Luffy then walks toward Zoro, saying that his declaration was cool, to Zoro's embarrassment.[2]

Her work forces her to stay up late at night studying, and she grows overwhelmed as she remembers her mother Bell-mère telling her to not push herself. This causes her to tear up in the classroom and ask for Luffy to save her; he immediately complies as he puts his straw hat on her head and invites her to eat Cheese Curry instant noodles with him, Zoro, Usopp, and Sanji.
