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!

Don’t even attempt to watch this unless you have at least 180 IQ or unless four generations of your ancestors have lived in Nagoya. Mere commoners can not hope to understand such concepts as “a regional dialect sounds funny” or “a regional culture is exotic”, and might even hurt themselves if they try.
Well, alright, I’m a 1/8 Nagoyan, and we’re known for our benevolence, so I’ll teach you the wisdom of my people. In Nagoya dialect, the syllables "ai" and "ae" turn into "yaa" (umai -> umyaa, omae -> omyaa) which to other Japanese sounds like cat noises. This is why the female lead here read more

Out of all of the 3-5 minute shorts I've seen, and I've seen a good deal, this is one of my favorites. The characters are extremely cute, the dialogue is hilarious. It's very much worth your time. Monaka might have been the cutest girl in the season, and she's trapped in a tiny short! How sad! Also has some great moments for someone who's a huge fan of Kannagi such as myself, for whatever reason.

Of course you could consider the runtime of this series as a flaw, and in some sense I do as I'd love it if it was at least a ten minute read more

Listen, I'm not gonna go out there and say that this is anything even close to special, because none of these 5-minute short series simply don't have the time required to do justice to their premises anyway. But when it comes to a show about making fun of Nagoya's extremely specific regional culture and all of the odd differences in accent, food, and traditions, Yatogame-chan delivers in droves. It's friggin' hilarious, but only if you are already familiar with some of these weird Nagoya things anyway.

So if you're willing to take a plunge and take the one hour required to watch this entire series, then read more

There are anime with hour-long episodes or others with 5 or even less minute-long episodes. Most falling on the short side are normally extremely shallow, mostly comedic and disliked.

At first, I saw this series on my list and thought it just looked cool, the average score was around 6 which was a red flag and I only noticed it was 12*3min episodes including an ending song after I downloaded all the episodes and they were only 140MB. My expectations fell really low and I must say this was pretty okay.
