Being photographed is Aeon’s Top Value line’s “Top Value Noodles”, costing just 88 yen each (89 cents). The mission is to make something even cheaper than something from the dollar store look extravagant. This year, the packaging for the four cup noodle flavors (soy sauce, curry, seafood, salt) were updated, so the challenge will encompass all flavors.

Reactions on 2channel:
Oh gosh that’s just gross
You don’t remove it from the cup!!
This challenge is depressing（´・ω・｀）
Is it still cup ramen when you take it out of its cup? (´・ω・｀)
This is so Derelicte…
Looks like brains
Looks like puke or food waste the moment you take it out of the cup
I would never eat cup ramen if I had to spend this much effort
It’s not cup ramen without the cup! And they added leaves and stuff…
Why are they dipping the noodles? It’s curry, pour it!
>> I thought so too! Why are they dipping??
They all look awful.
Maybe people who can’t see well would like it. And people who can’t taste well.
This isn’t what I was hoping for
It’s like professional photos of a real ugly girl with a lot of makeup
What the hell? I thought it was going to be cup ramen with a pink spotlight on it or something
Do it over.
Normal is best. This is just trying too hard.
The idea and sensibilities are good, but cup ramen is perfect as it is… in its cup
This isn’t what i imagined, I’m sad
I’m surprised that there weren’t any surprises
I’ve learned that cup ramen will never be anything more than cup ramen
Just put a cup ramen on the hood of a Mercedes Benz
This does not look extravagant at all
I’d rather cook a real meal if I’m going to spend this much time on it. Cup ramen exists because it’s cheap, good, and fast
Hot water and 3 minutes, that’s still the best way to enjoy cup ramen
I guess noodles in a cup is the best it can look…
I love ramen! Let’s see what this is all about…痛いニュース
