Alright so, I'll break this anime down in just a simple sentence.
"An anime with no real story-telling, aimless romance between characters, and... is about Dagashi!"
The story revolves around Shikada Kokonotsu, an aspiring manga artist who stubbornly refuses to inherit the family business- a small-time candy shop, going by the name of Shikada Dagashi. One day, Shidare Hotaru- a dagashi-loving waifu who works in a world famous sweets manufacturer, shows up on their front door, looking to provoke Kokonotsu's oto-san to come back working for her company. He refuses at first, but agrees under one condition: Hotaru will have to convince Kokonotsu to take over
the family business.
AND SO, this becomes the main "objective" of the overall anime. But to be really honest, there is no story progression at all. Every episode is completely random, and the situation in each episode is very similar to the every other. Hotaru enlightens Kokonotsu with a new dagashi, so on and so forth.
Yeah, not much to say here since I watch all anime in 1080p. The art is probably the greatest thing about the anime itself.
Decent but with not many memorable soundtracks at all.
As there isn't much character progression either, the characters aren't really memorable at all. Except for, at most, the main waifu. (totally not because of her overly obese oppai)
Despite the story, the anime really wraps around its comedy genre. I could see myself laughing in almost every episode, and it really lightens to the mood of the entire anime. Sometimes during an episode, I would ask myself why I'm watching a no-story-progression anime in the first place, and then the comedy kicks in at some point, and I don't regret watching as much anymore. It also educates you in different Japanese sweets!
The comedy is great, but the lack of story and character progression really puts the score down the drain. The aimless romance is really annoying at times too, you think it's progressing slowly but in fact- it's not at all.
AT MOST, it's gotta be a 7/10. Anybody who gives it above a 7 is probably just a weaboo in love with the main overly obese oppai waifu.
And there you have it. A mediocre, but fun-to-watch anime. If you want an anime that you don't want to take serious at all, but at the same time have a little laugh and appreciate the art, then this is for you. Otherwise, disregard it.
