Limited time collaboration with Pasco Shikishima Corporation includes stickers and prizes
Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki, a manga and short form TV anime that is all about the joys of the Nagoya region, is teaming up with Pasco Shikishima Corporation, a Japanese bakery whose headquarters are in Nagoya, for a unique collaboration that includes special prizes.
From September 01 - 30, 2019, customers will be able to purchase special edition versions of Pasco's "Ogura Jam & Neo Margarine" sandwich rolls at supermarkets and convenience stores in the Tokai region of Japan. The sandwich rolls will include 1 of 4 randomly selected stickers featuring the characters from Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki, as well as a QR code that will allow purchasers to enter a lottery-style drawing that rewards fabulous prizes.
The prizes include "Ogura Jam & Neo Margarine" sandwich roll-themed pillows, a visit from the "Big Yatogame-chan" mascot character to a birthday party or other group gathering (for Aichi Prefecture residents only), and the chance to appear as a background character in the second season of the Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki TV anime, which is currently in development.
The original Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki manga by Masaki Andou is serlalized in Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Rex manga magazine. The Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki TV anime is directed by Hisayoshi Hirasawa and features animation production by WORDS in STEREO. Crunchyroll describes the series as follows:
After growing up in Tokyo, high school student Jin Kaito moves to Nagoya where he meets Yatogame Monaka, a fellow student who puts her Nagoya dialect on full display. With her cat-like appearance and unvarnished Nagoya dialect, Yatogame won't open up to him at all. This popular local comedy is increasing the status of Nagoya through observation of the adorable Yatogame-chan!
