    What manga/anime is this?

    I imported a few board games from Japan a couple of years back. I only did it for the Takeshi's Castle (my favourite game show) board game but there was a couple of others bundled. At first I didn't know what they were.

    I found out I have a board game based on the Touch manga/anime from the 1980s. I instantly recognised the art style that's similar to Maison Ikkoku or Ranma 1/2. I enjoyed both of them and as soon as I saw that Touch is apparently similar to Maison Ikkoku I got it ready to watch. It's unusual for me to watch a romantic comedy but there's something special about the '80s style that you never find anymore.

    There's a third game, like I said. Unlike the Touch board game there's absolutely no English text so I have nothing to go on and could do with help.

    Obviously it's a children's manga/anime. Unfortunately as I'm trying to free up space in my apartment, one of these have gotta go. I do feel slightly bad about doing it. There is some written Japanese on a few manuals in the box. Probably in the 1980s this board game was enjoyed by a Japanese family. I know it sounds weird, but by throwing it out to a landfill I feel like I'm wiping out a small piece of someone's history. It's still gotta go though!

    I may be able to find out. I'll edit this post if I crack the code.

    I dont know what it is, but it's giving me some heavy Shin Chan vibes.
    And that makes sense.
    A reverse google search turned up "Chibi Maruko-Chan", a manga from 1986 with a lot of different anime. With the most recent in 2006.
    Chibi Maruko-chan - Wikipedia
    You know what's really eerie, though?
    There was a second series that was supposed to come out in April, but was delayed until June 25th due to COVID.

    But it looks like a pretty popular series.
    I'd suggest trying to sell that instead of getting rid of it. Any place it looks like that is sold has it sold out, and some of the manga sell for a decent price.
