What They Say:
After growing up in Tokyo, high school student Jin Kaito moves to Nagoya where he meets Yatogame Monaka, a fellow student who puts her Nagoya dialect on full display. With her cat-like appearance and unvarnished Nagoya dialect, Yatogame won’t open up to him at all. This popular local comedy is increasing the status of Nagoya through observation of the adorable Yatogame-chan!

Short form series don’t get second seasons often so I’m a little surprised this one got one but not too much. It’s one that’s definitely grown well and I can see it being useful and fun for promotion for Nagoya. With this episode, the group has gotten together to do some karaoke and have fun hanging out a bit, but Jin is confused by the fact that it’s the main activity and not just some after-activity, again showing his high-falutin’ Tokyo lifestyle. Amusingly, the place is packed at eight in the morning, defying logic, and it’s a further culture shock for him as the huge room is small to the rest of them and full of great amenities. It’s fun to see an area like this where while things are obviously fun in Tokyo for karaoke, it’s a very different lifestyle out here in Nagoya.
There’s a lot of fun with the singing at the end as Jin gets to be pretty shocked there as well and the end result is cute and fun in all the right way. The show had a decent run this season overall though the first few episodes were pretty weak. It did show improvement throughout and the last few were a lot more enjoyable and this one probably delighted me the most.
