Actress Kasume Hasegawa stars in the titular role in a new web CM for Ponkotsu Ponko, a seinen manga by Keita Yatera about a clumsy robot maid who is hired to keep an elderly man company after his wife passes away.



A slapstick comedy, the story of Ponkotsu Ponko follows Yoshioka, an old man who is determined to live out the rest of his days quietly after his wife passes away. Yoshioka's plans change quite a bit with the arrival of Ponko, a companionship robot designed to keep Yoshioka company and act as a housekeeper. Unfortunately for all involved, Ponko is sort of terrible at the tasks she's programmed to do...

Ponkotsu Ponko is serialized in Shogakukan's Big Comic Bros seinen manga magazine. The first collected volume of the series was published in Japan on July 30, 2019.
