Manga about boy who runs sweets shop and sweets connoisseur girl inspired 2 TV anime series

Indonesian publisher Elex Media Komputindo released the first volume of Kotoyama's Dagashi Kashi manga on Wednesday.

Funimation streamed the manga's anime adaptation in North America, and it describes the story:

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.

Kotoyama began the series in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine in June 2014, and ended it in April 2018. The manga was nominated for the 41st annual Kodansha Manga Awards in 2017. Shogakukan published the manga's 11th and final volume in May 2018.

The first 12-episode television anime adaptation of Dagashi Kashi premiered in January 2016. The second 12-episode season premiered in January 2018.
