[ The air conditioner commercial featuring Ninja Hattori ]
The Panasonic's air conditioner commercial begins with a fighting scene. Then suddenly, the duelers feel a cool, refreshing flow of air. Panasonic's air conditioner has helped them forget about their fight and become refreshed and happy.
[ Commercial for ECONAVI equipped home appliances starring Ninja Hattori ]
Ninja Hattori is quite meticulous. For example, he turns off lights that are not being used, so he is very energy conscious. In the ECONAVI commercial, his younger brother Shinzo, Shishi-maru, and Kenichi also make an appearance to help communicate the importance of being eco-conscious. It is quite interesting to hear the difference in the tone of the voices from the original Japanese anime, so please take a look.
