ホイホイさん」 by (Kemurin)

The Dengeki Game Festival 2012 event — streamed live via NicoNico Douga — has just released word of a new 「Ichigeki Sacchuu!! Hoihoi-san」 anime project in the works. The exact format — TV, OVA, etc — has yet to be disclosed.


The time is the near future. Cockroaches and other household pests have become immune to all forms of insecticides. In response to this crisis, a Japanese company has created small, doll-like, insect exterminating robots called Hoi Hoi-san. A competing company has also released their own version, Combat-san. Because of their adorable appearance, these little robots have become somewhat of a phenomenon and have gained many fans. Late at night, in the home of one such fan, Hoi Hoi-san and Combat-san search for insects to exterminate… but Combat-san is not above trying to exterminate Hoi Hoi-san while shes at it.

  1. hahaha it’s funny!!!! I wan’t a doll like that!!!!!!! that will eliminate all the harmful insects in my house!!!!!! D

  2. The white word below “Hoihoi” is “Legacy”, which was the subtitle of the spinoff manga started in September 2007 (the original one-shot was published in 2003).

    In January 2008 there was a rumor of a Hoihoi anime where Rie Kugimiya was cast as Hoihoi-san and Rie Tanaka would play Combat-san that was debunked.  I’ll definitely watch any anime around Hoihoi, no matter what format it comes out as.

  3. “Legacy”, should have known (but forgot :P).
    The manga series that came after the original and the model kits come under that title.
