FUNimation, the leading global anime content provider, and Kung Fu Tea, the U.S.’s largest bubble tea brand, have announced a cool promotion which brings bubble tea lovers and fans of anime together. Beginning March 15, 2021, FUNimation and Kung Fu Tea will be giving away a one-month FREE FUNimation subscription with the purchase of any Kung Fu Tea drink. To get this deal, fans just need to stop by any of the 250+ Kung Fu Tea locations across the U.S., purchase a drink and scan the QR code on the co-branded lids.
The promotion runs from March 15-May 9, 2021.
In addition to a one-month complimentary subscription to FUNimation, Kung Fu Tea will be serving three limited edition drinks inspired by Fruits Basket characters starting April 1, 2021 — Yuki’s Noble Taro Slush, Tohru’s Strawberry Blush Slush and Kyo’s Mango Madness. Customers will also be able to get a limited edition Fruits Basket sticker when they purchase the above drinks (while supplies last). Fruits Basket is the “wildly” popular anime series following plucky Tohru as she meets the unique members of the Soma family and learns about their mysterious curse. The series returns for its final season in April 2021 on FUNimation’s streaming platform.
“The promotional partnership between FUNimation and Kung Fu Tea is a great way to celebrate the final season of Fruits Basket and is an excellent way for fans to celebrate these beloved characters,” noted Rahul Purini, Chief Operating Officer at FUNimation Global Group. “It’s also a great way to usher in spring and a whole new season of amazing anime content.”
“As America’s Bubble Tea, Kung Fu Tea’s mission is to build a community through our fresh ingredients, bold flavors and innovative drinks. Our partnership with FUNimation gives Kung Fu Tea the opportunity to reward the fearless fans of not only our products, but some of the best anime as well,” said Mai Shi, Marketing and PR lead from Kung Fu Tea.
