Synopsis

Habahiro Hige is a simple-minded older man who works an office job and is an enthusiast of Tabekko Marshmallows. His days often consist of being teased by his 24-year-old colleague Iori Wakabayashi, who uses his obsession to her advantage: from eating them in front of his face, to buying out his favorite brand from the convenience store, and even embarrassing him in front of their boss. Although her friends cannot fathom what she sees in him, she just cannot get over his marshmallow-like, fluffy frame. No matter the lengths it takes, Iori will find a way to get his attention.

Little does Habahiro know that she is trying to seduce him into a romantic relationship with her. The way to a man's heart is through his stomach, right? At least this is what Iori would honestly like to believe. With a bag in hand, Iori continues to make him chase after her day after day, hoping that he will finally see through her attempts. Will he ever realize that their relationship can become s'more?

Even though these episodes may be "marshallow" sized, every second of each episode is packed with hilarity, suggestive innuendos, misunderstandings, workplace sexual harrassment and a genuine feeling of heart.

Hige-san is an overweight office worker for a "web-related company" (actual name of it, no joke) and he has an obsession for marshmallows, a trait which is further examined in episode 4. He works along Wakabayashi-kun, a 24 year old female office worker who has a similar obsession with marshmallows, AND Hige-san.

Wakabayashi is attracted to Hige and orchestrates several situations in which they can get closer. The punchline is, Hige-san is a very introverted and polite older read more

Ojisan to Marshmallow is basically 3 minutes of compressed greatness. This anime was full of plottwists, comedy and romance. This is pretty much a work of art. This was a blessing from the fairy.

My feelings while watching this, were like wave going up and down a stream of marshmellows. I was bouncing up and down my chair of excitement like a marshmellow. My heart was melting like a marsmellow on top of a fire.

This anime was able to provide a story and various genres in 3 minutes.You can watch this whole series in about 36 minutes, but it seems like an eternity of joy.

I had such an absolutely fantastic time watching this anime, I started watching it because I wanted something short to enjoy whilst I ate my dinner, I did not expect to fall in love with such a short anime.

The characters are perfectly matched, the story is simple yet digestible and there are more than a few laughs to be found in this anime.

Ojisan to Marshmallow somehow managed to condense perfect story telling down into three minute segments, you really have nothing to lose watching this, a lot of the enjoyment to be found here is in the characters and their interactions with each read more

(This review has been adapted from my blog/reddit thread. Spoilers ahead!)

Ojisan to Marshmallow contains, not surprisingly, a lot of marshmallows.

I recently purchased some. The multicolored, multiflavored kind. I’m actually eating them as I type out this paragraph. The anime inspired me to pick them up from the grocery store to see what all the hubbub was about.

After eating a few handfuls, I am not too keen on having more. While it’s watching instead of eating, the same can be said of Marshmallow.

STORY

Marshmallow is as long as marshmallows are short. At about three minutes an episode, the anime has little time to create a simple and read more
