The third compiled book volume of Kotoyama's Dagashi Kashi manga is revealing the staff of the upcoming anime adaptation on Friday. It is also revealing the anime's January premiere on TBS and BS-TBS.
Shigehito Takayanagi (Kanamemo, The World God Only Knows, Tokyo ESP) is directing the series at the anime studio feel., and is also supervising the series scripts alongside Yasuko Kamo (Galaxy Angel A, Kanamemo, Tokyo ESP). Kanetoshi Kamimoto (Burst Angel, Taisho Baseball Girls, Mushi-Uta) is designing the characters.
The manga's story follows Kokonotsu, who does not want to inherit his family's rural candy store as his father wishes. A girl named Hotaru, who's crazy about small-time candy stores, appears at the store and repeatedly visits in order to convince him to take it over. The title means "Cheap Sweets Candy," which is also the name of a Japanese band, but read differently it could mean "However."
Kotoyama began the series in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine in June 2014.
