This time, the synopsis and scene preview of episode 4 “A Battle I Absolutely Can’t Lose”, which begins airing on April 30 (Sat), have been released.
【Episode 4 “A Battle I Absolutely Can’t Lose”】
Which city is best considered as Japan’s “third city”? Yokohama or Nagoya!? Kochikashi and Yatogame refuse to give any ground to each other.
While they tried to calm things down at first, somehow Aonaji, Asaka, Tadakusa and Sasatsu all got roped into the battle instead with everyone’s prefectures getting dissed. The battle that must be won begins!

『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”
