Out in the countryside stands a sweet shop run by the Shikada family for nine generations: Shikada Dagashi, a small business selling traditional Japanese candy. However, despite his father's pleas, Kokonotsu Shikada, an aspiring manga artist, adamantly refuses to inherit the family business.

However, this may start to change with the arrival of the eccentric Hotaru Shidare. Hotaru is in search of Kokonotsu's father, with the goal of bringing him back to work for her family's company, Shidare Corporation, a world famous sweets manufacturer. Although the senior Shikada initially refuses, he states that he will change his mind on one condition: if Hotaru can convince Kokonotsu to take over the family shop. And so begins Hotaru's mission to enlighten the boy on the true joy of delicious and nostalgic dagashi!

Do not watch this if you are hungry! I repeat do NOT watch this when you are hungry! While it is a good anime it will make you want to snack. I aware, every time I watch this anime I buy some of it overly priced because of shipping. On the flip side it's an amazing way to learn about Japanese candy and snacks and see if any interest you. Besides the snack recommendations the story (if you can even call it that) is very cute and has a lot of charm in it. The animation quality is pretty good and the voice acting is ...

“Dagashi Kashi” is what happens when a sugar addict gets a chance to create something.

I honestly don’t know why it isn’t classified as a “slice of life” on MAL but… c'est la vie.

It’s a story about a boy who really doesn’t want to succeed his father in running a small dagashi (from what I understand it’s an umbrella term for cheap candy and snacks) store out in the boonies. One day an eccentric (borderline obsessive and crazy if You ask me) girl shows up in town to recruit his father to work for her family company. By the power of anime logic the father and ...

Encouraged by the study feel, which has done things like the nostalgic Kiss x Sis, the famous Yosuga no Sora, and crap like Makura no Danshi. We get this anime that once gave something to talk about, but today is as forgotten as Erased at the end of its broadcast.

We better go quick with this fucking anime shit which I watched in its broadcast last year. Why ?, because I read a post where a moderator of AeE told some member of the Chinese dead that the show of this series would be his Waifu of the season, and surprisingly the design was fucking beautiful ...
