New season announced for adaptation of Masaki Andou's regional comedy manga
Good news for fans of regional humor! Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki, a TV anime based on the four-panel manga by Masaki Andou about a Tokyo boy who moves to Nagoya and finds the culture of his new home both fascinating and bewildering after he befriends a local girl, is returning to Japanese airwaves for a third season. A new key visual (below) has also been published for the series.
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 Saetta. The third season of the series will broadcast in Japan on TV Aichi and other stations, but so far the release date for the third season has not yet been revealed.
