The fifth and latest episode of the fourth season of yuri anime Maria-sama ga Miteru appears with an onslaught of Pizza Hut advertising complete with a scene depicting the characters eating at the aforementioned restaurant.
Such advertising is not uncommon in anime today, much to the annoyance of (some) fans.
The author of the article shares such sentiments but admits the episode made him develop a craving for Pizza Hut. Perhaps arguing the effectiveness of it all is a moot point?
Of course, it can be accomplished relatively elegantly, such as with C.C.‘s eccentric pizza obsession.
