Video previews Ayana Taketatsu as candy store fanatic Hotaru

The 2nd 2016 issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine announced on Wednesday that the television anime of Kotoyama's Dagashi Kashi manga will premiere on January 7 at 2:16 a.m. on the TBS channel. It will then run on CBC, Sun TV, BS-TBS, and CS-TBS Channel 1. The anime's website also posted a new main visual and a promotional video. In the video, Ayana Taketatsu (as the character Hotaru) introduces the characters and the story.

Kotoyama's original manga follows Kokonotsu, who does not want to inherit his family's rural candy store as his father wishes. A girl named Hotaru, who is 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."

Ayana Taketatsu is not only playing lead female character Hotaru Shidare, but she is also performing the ending theme song "Hey! Calorie Queen."

The other cast members include:

Atsushi Abe as Kokonotsu Shikada

Keiji Fujiwara as Yō Shikada

Manami Numakura as Saya Endō

Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Tō Endō

The 19-year-old singer Michi is performing the opening theme song "Checkmate!?"

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). The scriptwriters are Kamo, Tatsuhiko Urahata, and Michiko Yokote. Kanetoshi Kamimoto (Burst Angel, Taishō Baseball Girls., Mushi-Uta) is designing the characters. Satoshi Motoyama is directing the sound, and Pony Canyon is producing the music.
