「夏目友人帳コラボ企画が人気」  温泉など広域観光の充実を  旬夏秋冬キャンペーン実行委の総会
 ひとよし・くま旬夏秋冬キャンペーン実行委員会の総会が先月29日、人吉市役所で開かれ、昨年、全国のファンが郡市に集った夏目友人帳コラボ企画が人気で今年度も行うことにした。
 夏目友人帳は熊本県出身の緑川ゆきさん原作の人気漫画。
 テレビアニメ版では郡市の風景が参考にされている。そのため、ロケ地として使用された郡市をPRし、夏目ファンの誘客を図ろうと、昨年度からタイアップ事業を開催。
 夏目友人帳×人吉温泉ポスターや人吉花火大会のポスターを作製。特に、人吉花火大会のポスターは大会当日、50人に無料プレゼントされ、若者を中心に、東京都や愛知県、大阪府などから430人が申し込みに訪れる人気だった。
 郡市のテレビアニメで参考にされた場所を巡る「探訪マップ」は、7月に初版1000部が1カ月でなくなり、計3回の1万7000部を増刷。大勢の夏目ファンがマップを手に郡市を巡った。
 今年度もコラボしたポスターの作製などの事業計画を掲げ、さらに大勢の夏目ファンで賑わいそう。

Go Natsume 伍 started!

Show your support for Natsume Yuujinchou by joining our Go Natsume 伍 campaign!

We deeply love Natsume Yuujinchou and want to give back some of the happiness this series has brought us. This project was born to let the Japanese creators know that we as fans would support a possible fifth anime season and to thank them for giving us such a wonderful series.

To participate and send them a message, just take a picture meeting these criteria:

1) dress as a youkai (could be a shadow youkai) or represent Natsume's world somehow
2) have some sort of official merchandise or official manga in view
3) include "Go Natsume 伍!" or "Go Natsume 5!" somewhere in the picture

and send it to us using the Submit form on the Go Natsume 伍! Website. We'll send a printed fan-compiled Yuujinchou with all the photos and messages to Midorikawa-sensei, Brain's Base and Hakusensha.

But that's not all! There are a lot of other ways to get involved in this campaign even if you don't want to take a picture of yourself. Visit our site for more information and to read about the other side projects. Please help us show the Japanese creators that this is a series that has touched fans the world over!

Please repost to spread the word!
