Lesbians Love Pizza - or how Pizza Hut is Targetting Japanese Men

In an effort to further penetrate the Japanase market the official website for the Maria-pizza hut japansama ga Miteru high school anime series has announced a Pizza Hut tie-in campaign.

The series is based on Oyuki Konno and Reine Hibiki's shōjo light novels about the complicated relationships within the walls of the Lillian All-Girls Catholic High School - intended to attract a male readership.

In the stories the girls will be seen eating pizza and visiting Pizza Hut Restaurants as their various stories unfold.

Maria-sama ga MiteruWhen customers in Japan buy a medium pizza, they get a pizza box with a Maria-sama ga Miteru design as well as PC wallpaper and mobile phone graphics online. Those who order online will enter a drawing for one stamp sheet signed by the main cast, nine signed scripts, and 20 OVA Fan Disks.

So Pizza Hut are happy. The series' predominantly-male readership start buying more pizza as a result of seeing their heroines doing the same, and some PH Marketing Director wins an award for "The Most Blatent Piece of Product Placement in 2007"
