Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki Teams Up with Nagoya Bakery for Chance to Appear in Anime
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Masaki Ando's Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki manga and anime series is a comedy focusing on the quirks of the Nagoya prefecture and dialect. Think of it as humor-focused tourism show, not unlike You Don't Know Gunma Yet. It's no surprise then that the series is teaming up with Nagoya-based bread company Pasco.
Pasco's Sandroll Ogura & Neo Margarine flavored treat will include one of four types of Yatogame-chan stickers from September 1 to September 30. The bread will be sold at supermarkets and convenience stores in the Tokai area. The collaboration's official website notes that this flavor is Pasco's most popular of its Sandroll products and it was even featured in the first volume of the manga.
The treats will include a QR code that will give buyers a chance to win sandroll pillows (not edible!), a chance to appear in the second season of the Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki anime series, and visit places in Aichi prefecture with the Yatogame-chan mascot.
The anime's first season premiered on April 4. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired, and it described the story:
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!
Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Rex magazine publishes the manga. The manga's title character was appointed as Nagoya Tourism Cultural Exchange Mission Ambassador in March 2017.
