Arale-Chan in the flesh: Dr. Slump goes live-action

Here's something I somehow didn't know about until a day ago or two.

Last summer, the Japanese clothing producer/retailer GU produced a commercial based off Akira Toriyama's Dr. Slump to promote a new pleated skirt.   It features Ayami Nakajō as Arale, Yuki Uchida as Akane, and Kengo Kora as Peasuke.

Here's the commercial, followed by some behind the scenes goodness.  I hope you enjoy it, even if you don't know Japanese.
