Trigger Kirin Beer Anime CM Mass Triggers


Complaints over an animated Kirin beer CM from last summer has forced the animation to be taken down from the company’s official website, with the reasoning being that the CM supposedly “appealed to minors” due to its usage of anime characters – naturally insulting both anime fans and beer-loving sophisticates alike.
