The latest series of "Pokemon", called "Mattetene! Koiking" (lit. Wait for me! Magicarp) has been released on the official YouTube channel "Pokemon Kids TV". This work is the 4th series of "Poketoon" and it was produced by Studio Colorido, known for the original web anime "Pokemon: Twilight Wings" of "Pokemon Sword and Shield", and the film "Penguin Highway". "Mattetene! Koiking" takes place in the Pokemon's daycare facility, "Daycare Center", and it depicts the bond between a young boy and Pokemon. The director and character design are handled by Herole Cedric. The expression of emotion is done in excess in this special animation with only the music and the watercolor-style art. Also, various genres of animation, such as "Pokapoka Magmag House" (lit. The Warm Slugma's House) and "Gengar ni Nachatta!? (lit. I've become Gengar!?" will be released as part of the "Poketoon" series. Director Herole Cedric I am a pet lover, so I felt extremely sad when the owners had to separate from their pets. Pokemons are not a pet, but when I first read the script, it made me felt the same sadness when the partners are separated from each other. I pity Magicarp who is waiting patiently for Rikuo. Magicarp always has an emotionless expression, but I think that he is sad deep down. As this is an optimistic work, I didn't emphasize a lot on the sadness, but I hope that the loneliness of the Pokemon and children are transmitted. Despite that, Magicarp will be dancing energetically while Rikuo is playing the heartening recorder. As expected, it good to have more friends! Because you won't be alone.

About 35% of the age group were teens, and about 25% were in their 20s. ■ The character with the same name is topping the list! 1st place 1st place goes to Takagi Wataru from "Detective Conan". The approval rating was about 30%. He topped the list again as last time. Readers commented on detective Takagi of the Metropolitan Police Department's Investigation Division, "It is amazing that the real name permeates the name of the character! I was amazed by the level of his professionalism when I learned that he also played the completely different role of George Kojima". It is widely known that initially this character had no name, but the name was decided as he called himself as an ad-lib remark. Another reason for the popularity is the character's gentle personality, "His feelings towards detective Sato are frustrating but cool", and "He is a kind, hard-working and caring detective". 2nd place 2nd place is shared between Onizuka Eikichi from "GTO" and Kojima George from "Detective Conan" with an approval rating of about 8%. Eikichi Onizuka is a teacher who is a former Yankee. He teaches problematic children in a non-ordinary way. The TV drama was also a big hit, which made this work even more famous. Many readers commented, "He is a good teacher who unexpectedly cares about his student.", and "The ruggedness of Onizuka remains in my memory. The OP anime was also stylish!" Kojima George is a self-proclaimed leader of the Detective Boys. Readers commented, "A mood maker who makes everyone calm. Surprisingly, he often gives hints for solving cases.", and "Although he has also played the role of detective Takagi, the performance is wonderful!" Many people didn't realize at first that it is the same actor as for detective Takagi. ■ Let's introduce other comments! For Garrod Ran from "After War Gundam X", "He, fighting on Gundam with the pure desire to protect Tifa, is so cool. It is also refreshing to see a bright mood maker character, which is rare among the Gundam protagonists who usually have low tension." About Okuyasu Nijimura from "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable", "He is usually a stupid and short-tempered guy but he is also a passionate person with family and friends! The acting of such a wonderful character was amazing." About Cheetah from "Beast Wars: Transformers of Super Life", "A Cybertron warrior who transforms into a Cheetah. He is a clown with a habit of saying "Jan" , and it was impressive that he was always involved with Rattle." For Bunbee from "Yes! PreCure 5", a lovable villain who appeared in the movie released this year, "Originally this character was supposed to be sent off, but Takagi Wataru's play became popular, so he came back! A comical and cheerful voice makes him a perfect and lovable role."
