The Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine is now teasing that the 2014 manga series from Kotoyama called Dagashi Kashi may be in line for an anime of some sorts. With its focus on sweets and cooking, it falls in line with a good number of other manga series and recent anime adaptations that have hit fans in the last year or two in a big way and in varying ways. Kotoyama’s series is pretty recent but the third volume comes out in a month on October 16th, 2015, and we expect to see a wraparound on it before then announcing an adaptation.
The series is Kotoyama’s first.
Plot concept: Shikada Kokonotsu’s father owns a rural sweets shop, and his plan is for Kokonotsu to take it over one day. However, Kokonotsu wants to be a manga author instead! One day in summer, the cute but weird girl Shidare Hotaru, from the famous sweets company, comes to pay a visit. Apparently, Kokonotsu’s father is famous and she wants him to join her family’s company. However, he will only agree if she can convince Kokonotsu to take over the family business!
