“Nippen no Miko-chan” is the image character for Gakubun General Education Center‘s correspondence course in ball-point pen penmanship, and she has been featured in the advertisement manga series for it since 1972. For the first time in its 46 years history, an anime TV CM is confirmed to be produced for January 2018.
The two main voice cast members from the Haruhi Suzumiya anime series are set to join the anime CM. Aya Hirano (Haruhi Suzumiya) voices the main girl Miko-chan, while Tomokazu Sugita (Kyon) plays her partner cat Nyanko. Kotaro Ishidate (Tesagure! Bukatsu-mono, Naria Girls) serves as director. It is scheduled to premiere on January 8, 2018, during Tokyo MX’s “Goji ni Muchu” variety talk show. According to the official Twitter, it is expected to be also available on the web in some way.
