Have you ever wished that you are woken up by your favorite anime character? JIHOU-CHAN is exactly the service for you. IDEA JAPAN has started JIHOU-CHAN, a wake-up call service for cell-phone by popular anime voice actress/actor for the first time in Japan on May 25. Jihou means "time signal" in Japanese.
You can receive time signal voices and various messages (wake-up call, birthday, encouraging words, love confession and such). The basic charge is 100 points/yen (roughly US$1.24) for one message.
You can also choose the type of character from:
