You don’t know Aichi. (Oh, wait… we do!)

Earlier today, the official Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki anime website updated with the show’s first cast and crew members, as well as a teaser visual and trailer. We break the details down below.


The two-minute teaser introduces the main cast and staff behind the project, with lead actress Haruka Tomatsu narrating. The animation is limited, as the promo flies over still shots and manga excerpts.
