Teased last week that an official nod would be coming, the latest installment of the Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine has arrived and confirmed that the Dagashi Kashi聽manga will be getting an anime adaptation. The 2014 manga series comes from Kotoyama and details of the anime adaptation will be coming in the future. In addition to the magazine cover announcement, the first full visual has also been released. 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鈥檚 series is pretty recent but the third volume comes out in a month on October 16th, 2015.
The series is Kotoyama鈥檚 first.
Plot concept: Shikada Kokonotsu鈥檚 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鈥檚 father is famous and she wants him to join her family鈥檚 company. However, he will only agree if she can convince Kokonotsu to take over the family business!
