Funimation describes the anime:
Kokonotsu “Coconuts” Shikada dreams of becoming a famous manga artist. The only problem—he's terrible. His real talent is selling the complex and delicious snacks in his father's “dagashi” shop. He never thought much about the family business until the trendy, eccentric Hotaru showed up. As a lover of “dagashi,” she can't let his talent go to waste and decides she won't stop 'til she's sold him on sweets.
The first 12-episode television anime series premiered in January 2016. Funimation streamed the series with subtitles as it aired in Japan, and also streamed an English dub. The company released the anime on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on April 18.
Kotoyama launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday in June 2014, and Shogakukan published the seventh compiled volume on March 17. The manga's eighth compiled volume will ship in Japan on August 10. The manga was nominated for the 41st annual Kodansha Manga Awards earlier this year.
