Yattaruchan Daisakusen[]

On May 26, 2013, at a ② Smile Sensation and 3rd Year Anniversary event, Tsunku announced a new project, Yattaruchan Daisakusen (ヤッタルチャン大作戦), after seeing the hard work the group has shown trying to become Yattaruchan. In this project, he assigned Nakanishi Kana a mission to become "Super Yattaruchan." Nakanishi has from June through August to complete the mission, with Takeuchi Akari supporting her in the process.

Fans can follow Nakanishi, Takeuchi and Tsunku's Twitter accounts for updates. Also, if you tweet either Nakanishi or Takeuchi your worries and problems using the hashstag #yattaruchan_naro, describing your status as either "Dekinai-chan" (デキナイチャン), "Samishii-chan" (サミシイチャン) or "Rikaishinai-chan" (リカシナイチャン), one of them might respond to your post on how to become Yattaruchan.

On March 2, 2014, Takeuchi Akari and then Nakanishi Kana Tweeted that their Twitter accounts would become inactive, but they would start to update their blog more often. Some of Nakanishi's last tweets stated "Maido! I still need to grow so I don't think I've become Yattaruchan yet but I'm glad I learned many things and met many people through Operation Yattaruchan(*^_^*)", "Maido! I feed very sad and I don't agree w/the decision(>_<) I won't forget everything that happened on Twitter and I'll keep updating the blog so please read it(*^_^*) Thank you(*^_^*)", and "Maido! I hope I can tweet again, to be continued..." [1].
