It’s been announced that the popular Mamegoma seal will be getting it’s own weekly anime show, entitled Kupu~!! Mamegoma! from the 10th January, 2009 in Japan. The San-X design and marketing firm announced that the palm sized bean seal character will star alongside the newly created Mamekawa family, mother, father, big sister Akane and little sister Yui.
The show will air as part of the Chibi Anime Gekijo program, which is not unusual for this type of show.
No word on a UK release, although it’s unlikely it’ll make it’s way over to the UK as previous marketing mascots haven’t made the journey.
