TV Asahi announced on Sunday that the Crayon Shin-chan anime will have an anime collaboration with the live-action series Doctor-X ~Gekai Daimon Michiko (Doctor-X: Surgeon Michiko Daimon). Ryōko Yonekura, who stars in the Doctor-X series as the freelancing surgeon Michiko Daimon, will voice the same character in a "short anime" that will air on November 9 during Crayon Shin-chan's new normal programming time of Saturday at 4:30 p.m. The segment of the episode featuring Yonekura is titled "Doctor-X da zo" (That's Doctor-X). This is Yonekura's first time voicing a character in anime.
The anime's characters Shin-chan and his dog Shiro will then appear in the fifth episode of Doctor-X ~Gekai Daimon Michiko on November 14.
Crayon Shin-chan premiered in April 1992, and moved to Friday evening in October 2004. The Crayon Shin-chan and Doraemon anime series moved to Saturdays after 15 years of airing on Fridays. Both anime are part of a new Saturday programming block named "Anime Time," which airs every Saturday at 4:30 p.m. Crayon Shin-chan will have new collaborations, in the vein of the crossovers it has had in the past with Aibou, Kamen Rider, Terminator, Pirates of the Carribbean, and other popular franchises. The anime collaborated with the Shiroi Kyotō live-action series on May 17.
Doctor-X ~Gekai Daimon Michiko is a live-action medical drama that premiered in Japan in 2012. The series follows Daimon Michiko, a freelance genius surgeon who hates groups, authority, and restriction. She pushes on with her medical specialist license and skills.
