A scan of the 43rd issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shounen Sunday magazine, which will go on sale on September 23, revealed that manga Dagashi Kashi will be receiving an anime adaptation. The format for the anime has yet to be announced.

Dagashi Kashi is written and illustrated by Kotoyama. It began serialization in Shounen Sunday magazine in June 2014. The manga is currently ongoing, with two compiled volumes published.

Synopsis
Shikada Kokonotsu's father owns a rural sweets shop, and his plan is for Kokonotsu to take it over one day. However, Kokonotsu wants to be a manga author instead! One day in Summer, the cute but weird girl Shidare Hotaru, from the famous sweets company, comes to pay a visit. Apparently, Kokonotsu's father is famous and she wants him to join her family's company. However, he will only agree if she can convince Kokonotsu to take over the family business!

Shouldn't it be Daga Shikashi, not Dagashi Kashi? (Not that I'm actually familiar with this series...)

Huh. Well I guess that's new. Wannabe artist's father wants him to instead take over the family ... Candy shop.

Somehow, I feel like this will be a full 1 cour (I mean, full length episodes). Hope they can capture the humor of the manga.

"cute but weird girl "

If she's weird enough to fit my tastes, I just might actually watch it.

I can understand it now that I checked on wiki that it's related to sweets, I guess the letters fooled me, haha (I personally would probably leave it in one word, to allow both "interpretations").
This word play gives me a slight deja vu feeling... Makes me wonder if I might have come across this title before...

More anime getting adapted from Shounen Sunday! <3 Seems interesting based on the synopsis. I am hoping that it takes place in rural setting with a slice of life tag / comedy on it. :)

Publishing since June 2014? Only two volumes out? And it's already getting an adaptation? This screams like either rushed or a short five minute series. I don't see why they didn't just wait a little longer before adapting.

I've seen some doujins of this series (believe me there's a ton already) and that main girl is something else. It's kinda crazy how popular this series is over in Japan.
Will check out the manga to see what all the fuss is about, though I'm sure it's just because of the waifubait. That main girl has a great, great design.

Except there is 60+ chapters out so we can cross out rushed adaption out of ur list.

So it releases weekly? But the OP post says there's only two volumes so far, which lead me to believe it's a monthly series with barely over 20 chapters.
Is the post wrong or something? Why would a series with 60+ chapters only have 2 volumes? I dunno, either way I'd prefer if they'd wait a bit more before adapting.
Either way I still believe in my theory that it's probably going to be short episodes instead of a full 24 minutes.

Amen. Gotta watch it just for her.

Sounds like something Dogakobo or Shaft would do. And by that, I mean contextualizing doujins.

The chapters are only around 8 to 10 pages usually. Good news to be sure, I've been enjoying the manga.

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssss


This can work just with two options

1. Dogakobo makes it, they've showed that they know their shit adapting short chapters manga (Gekkan Shoujo, Himouto, etc)

2. It's a 5minutes thing.

Each chapter is like 8-10 pages. Most likely a 5 min/episode anime.

YES!!!
Just the other day i was thinking it would be nice to see anime about this and look what we have here :D
It would be nice if it was a full length show but i'm gonna hold my breath.

I would love for Shaft or maybe even Dogakobo to be the ones animating this.

Nice, the mangas great so I'm super excited for this one. The only issue I have here (a lot of people here have already pointed this out) is that there currently isn't a ton of material to work with, so I don't know if that's enough for anything other than a short series, but I guess it all depends on when it's set to air.

Holy shit I just googled it (purely for research purposes of course) and you weren't joking. I knew Shidare and Dagashi Kashi were popular in Japan but I didn't realize how big she was with the doujin crowd. I should have figured though, she really cute. I wonder how much they'll be once the anime starts.

Ha, I didn't notice it until you pointed it out, but my theory is that it has a double meaning/pun. Dagashi shops sell cheap candy, snacks, and sometimes toys, targeted primarily to children who are given small allowances (often seen in slice of life anime in rural neighborhoods managed by an old lady). The Kashi would refer to the candies they sell. But if the title is read quickly without pause, it can mean "however" in Japanese, as you implied...The title seems to also relate to the plot, since the protagonist is pressured to take over the shop, however he refuses because he wants to become a manga artist instead. So I don't think you're totally wrong in that regard.

I wouldn't be surprised if they aired this in summer 2016, since it would coincide with the season primarily featured in in the manga.
