The campaign begins with a free promotional video for this anime, which is based on Eri Takenashi‘s Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens comedy manga. Members of the Pizza Hut Club mobile phone mailing list can alsoreceive free vocal ringtone and wallpaper presents. From now until November 9, all online orders of 1,400 yen (about US$14) or higher will include a postcard depicting the Kannagi cast enjoying a box of pizza.
