The producers of Copihan, the new anime from the studio Gonzo and Hatsune Miku designer Kei, are holding a contest for a chance to "appear" in the anime itself.
Between last Friday and August 14 (the last day of Tokyo's Comic Market event), the producers are revealing one of eight keywords every day on Nico Nico Live Broadcast, YouTube, Twitter, the Tartaros role-playing game, Copihan's own website, Monthly Newtype magazine, and Comic Market. People can collect all eight keywords and submit them in an online entry form anytime between August 12 and August 22. A winner will be selected from the correct entries and announced in early September.
The slapstick school comedy anime is set work in 2034 in Tokyo, where everything is encrypted and money is completely digital. Copihan will begin streaming on the Nico Nico Douga service in Japan this Thursday. KEI has also been drawing the manga series in Jive's Monthy Comic Rush magazine since last November.
