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
man, completely oblivious to Wakabayashi's advances, which creates many hilarious misunderstandings and eventually boils down to the two of them consuming bags of marshmallows.
The side characters are few and kinda forgetful. Wakabayashi's two female work friends turn up in a few episodes and say a few things without really leaving an impact, and Wakabayashi's brother has only just come into the series recently. But without a doubt, the stand out character in this series so far (apart from the main characters) is the Section Chief. He is hilarious and becomes completely content with the misunderstandings taking place. But you'll find out more about that when you watch the show.
UPDATE: A new challenger for Hige-san's affection approaches! Hijinks ensue! And she has a Kansai accent! Kawaii!
This is such a sweet and innocent story, and at only 3 minutes a piece, they are delightful to binge with only a short amount of time.
I look forward to seeing how this show progresses.
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
who wants the fat man's seed but you find out later she is a slut.
I have no clue who this anime is made for, middle aged fat men I guess.
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.
Not having seen many short series besides Plastic Nee-san and Seki-kun, I figured I was in for something as similarly off-the-wall like those two shows.
The namesake oji-san is probably the most pure and innocent character in the show. His only real love is for marshmallows. Knowing this, his coworker schemes for his attention.
It's her efforts that form the main entertainment value of this little show. The voice actress's dry delivery of the lines helps very much. Don't get it mixed up; she is very much in love with this marshmallow man, and we get to see her clever to clumsy efforts to get his
attention for 12 episodes in various settings and a rival thrown in for good measure.
You should watch this show because it will make you a better person and you'll learn a little bit more about marshmallows. Eat s'mores while watching.
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?
