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

Fat man enjoys eating marshmallows for 12 episodes, does that sound like fun?
Show sucks, main character is just some boring old fat dude who only thinks about eating and the female character spends every episode trying to seduce him with marshmallows.
Shit is not funny, to make matters even worse at the end of every episode you are treated to 3DPD footage of two women feeding another fat dude marshmallows, guys eats like a slob and he tries to eat them with a timer or some shit.
Animation is basic 3 minute short quality so don't expect anything.
There is also some other girl who appears later on read more

We all love unique animes! They give us a new kind of excitement, joy and unexpected plots, and Ojisan to Marshmallow is one of them. I mean, who else write stories where marshmallows are at the center of almost every events?

Hige-san is a large office man who has an obsession with marshmallows to the point that seeing one could be enough to make him distracted and excited. Little does he know that the office lady named Wakabayashi also has an obsession... with HIM.
Wakabayashi uses the marshmallows to get closer to Hige-san and try to form a relationship together. She may even try to seduce him read more

Ojisan to Marshmallow is in a word: Marshmallow

It lives up to it's title in the fact that it is cute and fluffy. Not much story, but the characters are fun. Episodes are short, and who new all the possible innuendos that could come from just eating a bag of marshmallows?

The only thing I do not like about this anime is the little weird live-action marshmallow recipe thing that's at the end of each episode. It does not add anything to the anime as a whole and it's rather annoying. However, since it's at the end of the episode it's very easy to avoid.

Overall, I read more

American Studios and Production Committees: Risks and Rewards

In the early-mid 2000s, US licensing companies were involved in numerous anime Production Committees. It didn't go so well for them. This year, several US licensors are trying their luck on Production Committees again. Will it go better this time?
