The fourth compiled volume of Masaki Andō’s Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki announced that the title will get an anime TV series. As of press time, no further details have been announced.

The four-panel comic revolves around the titular Yatogame-chan, an Aichi native who speaks in the Nagoya dialect. The series focuses on the differences in Nagoya’s culture from mainstream Japan. In addition, the character’s 80 turtles were appointed as Nagoya’s “Special Ambassadors for Tourism and Cultural Exchange.”
