Boyacky, one of the comical henchmen of the Yatterman series, has undergone a major transformation for his career as a virtual YouTuber.
Teaser posts on the character's official Twitter showed Boyacky entering a "hot guy mecha" and emerging as, to say the least, extremely different from his standard goofy look:
The new and improved Boyacky — or, as he calls himself, Bohemian Dulce Maria de Soleil Garcia du Viride Yacky — introduces himself in his new video, treats his fans to a song, and reads some early fan mail:
He joins fellow Yatterman star Ai Kaminari, who has held down the fort since the channel opened two weeks ago.
If you're worried that Boyacky's rugged good looks have changed him, don't worry: he's pretty much the same as he was in his Doronbow Gang days, right down to his favorite catch phrases.
