It’s been a while since I updated my Mikan Watch series… like three years? Oh well.
I was watching Kamichu with my girlfriend and I spotted a mikan box in episode three at around the 5:40 mark. I tried explaining to her that they’re kind of like easter eggs, and I’d point them out in other anime. I think she just wanted to continue watching the show, though.
This mikan box is a bit boring, because it doesn’t even have a picture of a mikan on it.

Awwww, dammit – I’ve been meaning to re-watch Kamichu to see if I could pick up on one in there. I actually asked the series director about Mikan Boxes after a screening of his new movie, Welcome to the Space Show, a couple of months ago and he said it was “something he tended to do”, so I’d assumed there’d be one in Kamichu somewhere…
YESSS! I checked your blog first just to make sure you hadn’t done a Mikan Watch on Kamichu! yet.
Quick question what is a Mikan? I love my anime and everything Japanese but have never come across the term?
