Oo, that was cute. Fireworks and a duo moment beween Kokonotsu and Hotaru.

The mood was nice too with the colorful energy!

So almost a kissing scene but Hotaru didn't make the last move.
Anyway the excuse for just the two of them was funny.

Man, I wished Kokonotsu would take the next step, that ending...

i didnt realize what it means when the unlucky one gets the 1st prize. without caculation hotaru demands kokonotsu to ride her to seaside and obviously fails. however this gives them a chance to develop some level of romance relationship, which i thought should not happen in this show. many comments said that "congrats to the end of season 2", i know what they mean. hotaru is gone, and our dagashi kashi 2 is done.
no, im not done. im looking forward to the new character! and i believe hotaru will be back.

While there was a lot of foreshadowing that I don't blame Kokonotsu for picking up, she dropped a huge red flag at the end. Her saying "Sayonara" should have told him right away since you only use it if it'll be a long time before you see them again if ever. I'm actually mad at him for not noticing.

Kokonotsu was so close to kissing Hotaru. What a shame. They're so cute together. At least the fireworks were pretty.

Damn, that was as close to drama as you will get in Dagashi Kashi. And Hotaru was almost acting like a normal person here! Interesting.

Wait, where did this RomCom Come from? I don't remember this having such a shitty RomCom drama before, I mean Kokonotsu feels quite out of place. I remember 1st season having more about candy and stuff... what is this?

Loved the seriousness for a change! Comedy is cool and all, but now that the characters have grown on me, I want some actual development to happen. I hope it keeps going like this.

Coconuts and Hotaru have a real, true moment there. Looks like Hotaru knew all about the festival, but wanted to keep Coconuts t herself. Awwwwwwwwwwww yeah, that means Coconuts is in!

Didn't expect drama from this at all, I guess I figured Summer break would go on forever. It's sort of a nice change of pace though. I'm really interested to see where this is going.

I do feel bad that Saya was left out though.

I wonder when the glasses chick will make an appearance? Next week ought to be good.

Well what do you know, they finally got their quality time together before Hotaru say that "Goodbye" word without Kokonotsu realizing it. Those kind of moment always had it's own feels in it.

If anyone is curious to what happens beyond this point, I'll briefly explain what you have in store for the rest of the anime's run. Be mindful the anime can take creative liberties but considering how very close the anime is faithful to the manga...

Great adaptation, perhaps even better than the manga. That's the face of a man who just realised what he had, only when he lost it =P

Interesting:
  • In the manga, Saya doesn't wear a yukata to the fireworks display
  • Some of the locations Kokonotsu went to look for Hotaru at are anime original, while one location from the manga was notably omitted: Hotaru's gang's den. The Hotaru's gang gag overall seems to have a much stronger presence in the manga than in the anime
The animation of Kokonotsu's hobbit feet annoys me though.

Woah, that was pretty unexpected, I wonder why Hotaru left, there is no way she accepted that Kokonotsu won't take over the shop. I bet she has just some stuff to do out of town for a while, she is working in the family business after all.

Hmmm... are you sure (he can’t track her)? He only needs to follow the trial of goodies/candy wrap/bags tossed in the street and sooner or later he is gonna find her... 😜

In my opinion,Hotaru is the ideal choice for Kokonotsu...why?...because she cares about him,firstly in a friendly way but later as we see in this episode it develops some love towards him.And another thing is that she don't force him to take over the shop,she just waits for his answer, as we see in the final episode of season 1.And most importantly they share the same knowledge about dagashi which brings them closer. Anyway,i don't think i covered the entire thing,but anybody is free to complete my argument.

P.S Saya is just a friend from childhood,that doesn't mean it will be his lover.She likes him,but that dosen't mean the emotion will be the same from Kokonotsu.I know they developed some kind of relationship,but just a friendly one.Just my opinion. :) Have a nice day.

Lol, it's like Hansel and Gretel, except Hansel is a slowpoke, and Gretel is the landlord that owns the witch's house.

Hotaru-chan,.. ?

We had this discussion on the manga's forum as well.

I really don't think it's that complicated or something special: it's the end of summer, she probably just has to go back to school like the others, except that's she's not from that town, so she'll have to go back to her own region.

I agree, and in the manga Kokonotsu is just as crazy a dagashi genius as Hotaru, perhaps even more than her. Season one just skipped on all the scenes that illustrated that, to make him seem more like a doofus.

What is up with the really weird shoes Kokonotsu's always wearing? They look completely freakish to me. Is that something only known to Japan or what? Every scene with his feet has been irritating because of that.

Otherwise, a solid episode...but I wonder how much fun it's going to be without Hotaru.

oh! en episode which has the least comedy in it!
Kokonotsu really misses Hotaru? is this a sign that he's feeling something towards the eccentric girl!? he even assumed that Hotaru will kiss him on the fireworks display! so assuming! haha!
4/5.

Interesting turn. Definitely my favorite ep so far. Was going to drop my score before this, now I'm not so sure. Still not the Dagashi Kashi I remember, but I like this direction.

This is the first episode where I think the 12 minutes was perfect. Gave you the important information and got right into building the relationship with Kokonuts and Hotaru which never really happened much in season 1.

Then again, the festival episode in season 1 was much better.

I never realized before what shitty footwear MC has. Those are some damn ugly sandal boots.
And damn, what's with the sudden drama, this show is usually much more light. I'm still not sure Hotaru actually likes him. I guess we'll see.
