Overview

Nature Valley Anime Tweets are a series of anime-themed messages posted by the official Twitter account for the American grain-snack brand Nature Valley.

The tweets soon gained popularity, spawning many other parodies, featuring a variety of anime character interacting with the snack bars.

Background

On April 27th, 2014, Twitter user @SuperRoyalLand[2] posted a self-deprecative message about buying a Nature Valley granola bar while dreading about his lack of social life at school. On the next morning, @NatureValley,[1] the official Twitter handle for the brand, responded to @SuperRoyalLand’s tweet with a message of encouragement suggesting that he should befriend some of their other followers who have expressed their love for anime.

As of May 2014, the tweet has garnered over 100 retweets and favorites. After the tweets, many different news sites picked up on the story, including Crunchyroll[4], Anime News Network[5] and Anime Herald[6]. The American anime licensing company Funimation also tweeted at the company using their twitter handle @Funimation[7], joking that their Senpai Had Noticed Them.




On April 30th, the handle retweeted a photoshopped image of the character Kokoro Akemi, from the anime Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, holding two nature valley bars from user @KokoroAkemi[8], adding an invitation for other users to do the same. The tweet received over 600 retweets and over 300 favorites.
