This season wasn’t as well done as last season imo, but it wasn’t horrible. Last season seemed to have a bit more depth in itself and its characters. This season was more focused on teaching us about certain events, places, and ways of the more southern areas of Japan. Which is fine as this anime is literally geared towards doing just that, but I didn’t vibe with the characters as much as I did last season. Which was a bit of a downer if Im honest.
If you want to learn about less known areas of Japan in a fun and quirky way this anime is for you! Its also really cutesy and it can even make you chuckle from time to time!
But just dont expect this to be a masterpiece. Its good and at 3 minutes a pop its definitely worth a try! But it wont blow your mind, though it may help keep your worries scattering away for a few minutes.
Anyone who has already seen the first season of Yatogame-chan will have a rough idea of what to expect. However, you do not necessarily need the previous knowledge of the first season to watch this second part.
It is a short anime with three minutes each episode and 30 seconds of them are the outro ED song.
As already seen from the first part, the story continues with the city Nagoya. There is no real "story" or plot here, but more or less the city sights and the culture are presented. There are no big connections between each episode, in each one we learn something new from the culture there.
CHARACTER & ART:
The characters are definitely cute and everyone has to love the main girl Monaka. With her cat-shaped appearance, she wins surely every heart. The other characters are also presented in a cute way and you can see they are having fun together as good friends. Some of them are not from Nagoya either, so we practically learn with them about the culture of the city. The animations are no different from the first part.
But it's no wonder that Yatogame-chan has actually become the mascot of the city in real life and probably everyone knows her there.
This short anime doesn't have an OP, but the ED song "Imaginary Love" is quite nicely to listen, definitely fun and enjoyable. It fits very well with the peaceful anime.
Tired from work or other things? Not in the mood for an anime with more than 20 minutes at the moment? Or just having a five minute break right now?
It all that cases "Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki Nisatsume" is a good choice. Just switch off and relax for a moment, watch few cute girls and learn a little bit about a new city and its culture. Don't expect too much action, but this anime fits perfectly for a short break.
