The only prefecture to not have an anime for it was (the ironically named) Miyazaki prefecture on Japan's southern main island of Kyushu. Futabanet notes that this is likely because Miyazaki doesn't have many anime set in the region (unlike, say, Tokyo) and that the prefecture only has two TV stations, so anime fans would have to get cable or stream the series online. Add onto the fact that a majority of the rapidly declining population are over 60, and just maybe anime isn't popular enough down in Miyazaki prefecture to warrant an answer.
