“Congratulations on terrestrial broadcasting!
I’m happy that more people can see my favorite Mini Mame-chan. Moreover, it seems like a dream to be able to get this kind of news on my birthday! It seems that the voices of the Chinese version of Mini Mame-chan and sweet friends are dubbed by the animation production crew!
I love the production crew’s love toward the animation and the cuteness of their voices!
I wanted to reproduce the cuteness of Mini Mame-chan, and bring them to life with as much cuteness as I could bring to the role!
Whether it’s a good day, a bad day, or a tiring day, I am sure that Mini Mame-chan will surely heal you!
Please make this sweet animation your bedtime companion!
The exquisite interactions with Jenshun and his friends are really fun and make you laugh!”
Shunya Ohira (Tapioca Jenshun)
Congratulations to MiniMame and Jenshun for making it to the terrestrial stage!
When I heard the news I was so happy that I sent a barrage of Mini Mame-chan stamps to my manager (by the way, the one I often use is “dejected”…). Now that they are going to start airing on terrestrial TV, they are sure to be loved by many more people, and I, too, would like to watch them while sipping tapioca milk tea. Please enjoy the show, everyone!
