Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki is a popular local comedy focused on the cute Yatogame-chan and improving the fame of Nagoya. Particularly popular in the Tokai region of Japan where more than half of its sales come from and published via Twitter, the original comic Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki has exceeded 550,000 total copies sold including digital sales.
This time, the synopsis and scene preview of episode 3 “Sono Kotoba wa Maakan”, which begins airing on April 23 (Sat), have been released.
【Episode 3 “Sono Kotoba wa Maakan”】
The photography club enters the student council room in order to try and prevent their club from being closed down.
A good friend (?) from the student council is waiting for them there… It looked like it was going to become a rough encounter, but in the end everybody had fun talking about their hometowns.
As they were talking however, the student council president Sho Kochikashi uses a “certain word”, and Yatogame loses it… The room soon erupted into chaos.

『Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki』 Season 4
A high school girl who spends a lot of time with her grandmother and has an unvarnished Nagoya dialect named Monaka Yatogame (voiced by Haruka Tomatsu), a boy from Tokyo named Kaito Jin (voiced by Mitsuhiro Ichiki), a girl from Gifu prefecture who attends the same school as Monaka named Mai Tadakusa (voiced by Yuki Wakai) and finally a girl from Mie prefecture named Yanna Sasatsu (voiced by Mikako Komatsu). Through these four highly distinct characters, this is a comedy where you can experience the dialect, culture and unique traits of Nagoya and the Chuukyo area!
Also, in seasons 2 and 3, Shizuoka prefecture native Lala Shonai (voiced by Yoshino Nanjo), Shiharu Itemae from Osaka prefecture (voiced by Honoka Kuroki), and Kyoto native Nanaho Koshiyasu (voiced by Ayasa Ito) all joined the cast of characters! Starting in the Chuukyo area, the backgrounds of the characters have expanded to include the Kinki region as well.
Finally, in season 4 of Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki, the charm and unique culture of Nagoya city, the Tokai region and other areas will all continue to be conveyed through various “loving insults”.
