*munch munch* MM you have to try a piece of this fugashi Hotaru recommended. *munch* It's so chewy and delicious.

I'll pass. I rather enjoy watching Hotaru eat on the screen. That way I don't get fat! haha With the recent spike in anime about food or cooking, it makes sense that this comedy gem would come back. Plus, there is that drinking anime this season too.

Takunomi? Yup. It is on my watchlist. Now that you mention it, we had Shokugeki no Souma 3rd Season in Fall 2017 and Osake wa Fuufu ni Natte kara too. You're right!

Is it a conspiracy? Just kidding. We all know that it is just fun times to be had all-around when it comes to anything delcious. I am happy to see food and drink anime on the rise. We even had Love Rice. With Satoshi Kuwahara on as director, I am sure that the 2nd season will go just as smoothly as the first.

The 2nd season of Dagashi Kashi.

Kokonotsu Shikada lives with his father and he runs an old fashioned candy shop. Kokonotsu dreams of becoming a manga artist, but his father has other plans. He wants him to take over the family business! Then, one summer day, the cute yet strange Hotaru Shidare shows up. Hotaru is from a famous sweets company and wants to have Kononotsu’s father join them! The father agrees on one condition, Kotonotsu must take over the shop! So the task for Hotaru to convince Kokonotsu begins…

Three Episode Impression

The Shikada’s are still peddling their wares and Hotaru is still trying to persuade Kokonotsu to be the one to overtake the store. The father has an even more muted role this season, probably so that it will be able to wrap up nicely with Kokonotsu taking over the store, but in the meantime, the art has taken a step down in quality. The art was not breathtaking in season 1, but you can see that it is getting the “short anime” treatment in season 2 where less effort is put into the characters in order to decrease costs overall. While season 1 felt as if it had a plot, season 2 is feeling more like a long commercial for dagashi since they have been hitting two an episode in a 10 minute span. The zany antics of the characters are still present though, so fans of season 1 will have no problem picking up season 2. Just expect to feel slightly rushed and a little shallow when it comes to the plot. For us, we will keep watching since dagashi is so fascinating to learn about.
