Head's up, Nagoya fans! A new key visual, new cast members, and the Japanese broadcast details have been published for the second season of Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki, the on-going short form TV anime based on the manga by Masaki Andou about a Tokyo boy who moves to Nagoya and discovers the charms of the region by befriending an energetic local girl.

The original Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki manga is serialized in Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Rex shonen manga magazine. Crunchyroll describes the story of 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!
The Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki TV anime is directed by Hisayoshi Hirasawa and features animation production by WORDS in STEREO. The series returns to Japanese TV for a second season during the Winter 2020 season, and it will broadcast as follows:
- TV Aichi: every Sunday during the 21:54 time slot beginning on January 05, 2020.
- Tokyo MX: every Monday during the 25:00 time slot beginning on January 06, 2020.
Please note that some Japanese TV schedules count early-morning programming as late-night programming of the previous day, so for example the 25:00 time slot on Monday evening is actually on Tuesday morning at 1:00am JST.
