The official website for the television anime of Kotoyama's Dagashi Kashi manga began streaming a promotional video for the anime on Tuesday. The video introduces the show's characters, and previews the opening theme song "Checkmate!?" by the 19-year-old singer Michi.
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."
The other cast members include:
Keiji Fujiwara as Yō Shikada
Manami Numakura as Saya Endō
Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Tō Endō
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).
