We love a good collaboration, especially when one is as appropriate as the tie-in for the new KONOSUBA – An Explosion on This Wonderful World! anime. Based on the Megumin-centric light novel series, the KONOSUBA spinoff is on the way to Japanese TV and Crunchyroll this April, and one of its promotional efforts has it connecting with the new Nissin Enmeshi spicy cup noodle brand.
Folks in Japan who purchase two Nissin Enmeshi products from specific stores and upload their receipts can enter for a chance to win a poster signed by Megumin VA Rie Takahashi along with other themed items. You can check out a campaign visual above and a goofy trailer below.

Yujiro Abe (episodes of Kaguya-sama: Love is War) is directing the anime, with Makoto Uezu on series composition at anime studio Drive.
Yen Press publishes the light novels in English and describes it like so:
My name is…
One year before a certain useless goddess and NEET extraordinaire hit the scene, Megumin, the “Greatest Genius of the Crimson Magic Clan,” is hard at work. Ever since a life-changing encounter in her youth, the young wizard has dedicated her every waking moment to the pursuit of the ultimate offensive magic, Explosion! (Well…every moment not spent hustling food from her self-proclaimed rival.) And while the big sister’s away, the little one will play. On a routine trip into the woods, Megumin’s little sister, Komekko, finds a strange black kitten. Little does she know that this cat plays a key role in unsealing a Dark God’s tomb…
