Dagashi Kashi Episode 5

Kinda a bit late this week, but still lets talk about this episode. I find it really good that they managed to still keep me entertained this week. There was that shady scene, youtube video, as well as Hotaru’s bad luck in gambling. Most of what Dagashi Kashi is trying to do is to make kids or young adults like us, like sweets again. I guess that’s the whole point of it, and it also felt like they are advertising some of the sweets while they are at it. It’s a good episode for me, but the lack of Saya this week might be a downside for those who likes her more than Hotaru. As for me, I’m on team Hotaru!

That shady scene between Kokonotsu’s dad and Hotaru though. I’m really not sure what they were up to, but it really did felt like they were lovers at the end, lol! While it’s obviously not the case, I guess it’s more of Hotaru and You having the same taste in sweets. I even like that Bottled Ramune when I was little, it was really nice. They did portray what most people experience when they first try the candy out. Spot on.

That Youtube video scene was kinda funny as well. You making a video of sweets? I really didn’t expect him to make one. I kinda cringed when he was like “yo, yo, yo!” It was really terrible. But I think it was going as planned for You. All he wanted was Kokonotsu’s reaction to make his video a hit. I like how realistic the video view count was as well. They didn’t exaggerate things and go with a big number, but keeps it logical.

The other half of the show was pretty good too. I like seeing Hotaru’s different side. This time we found out that Hotaru has the worst luck when it comes to gambling. She literally lose everything. I like that Hotaru’s outfit is sorta different too this week. She looks really nice. Although the clothing design didn’t change much, it was fresh. Hotaru’s reaction when she lose is kinda priceless, and it’s cute too! As expect from one of my favorite girl this season. I like the part where she ran away because she lost the bet. She knows that she is into one hell of a trouble, lol!

Overall I’m liking the show as it is now. Sure there was that one episode where I find the series not so good, but overall the series is pretty solid for me. The slice of life part of the show is what I like the most. While I can’t say it’s really slice of life, but it definitely felt like one. Just Kokonotsu and Hotaru doing stupid stuff all the time because of their love for Japanese sweets. I hope you enjoy the show as much as I do, but I do believe this show isn’t for everyone. Those who are usually critical about shows they watch and always takes things seriously, probably won’t like it that much. For me it’s fun to watch, so I’ll keep on watching still. Hotaru alone is enough to keep me going, and Kokonatsu’s dad is always hilarious when he makes his appearance. Saya is actually pretty nice too, but I kinda wish she had more screen time sometimes. Well that’s all from me this week, see you!

Dagashi Kashi Episode 4

Not a bad episode overall. They kinda got a bit overboard this week with some sexual ideas. While I was hoping for something creative this time, what they did this week was make things a bit lewd. So Japan! I think this episode was entertaining still, that snack guessing, and that running scene, everything was good thanks to Hotaru.

222

The part where I said that this anime wasn’t that interesting if it was just Hotaru and Kokonotsu was proved wrong this week. I think with an interesting topic/event, things could still be interesting. I still kinda prefer if they get all the other characters involved as well. If it was just Saya and Kokonotsu, things could be boring. Good thing it’s always Hotaru though.

That snack guessing was interesting, when they got into that lewd scene. It was fairly short but the scene looks so wrong. I’m just glad they didn’t go with a brown colored snack or something, because it could have look even worst. Not that I mind really 😛 Hotaru is always positive though, it’s hard to think that she ever has any dirty thoughts on her mind at all. It was a bit funny when Kokonotsu’s dad appeared and think they were doing something erotic together. I wish his dad would appear more often.

444

The other half of the show wasn’t bad either. I like the part where Hotaru looks a lot more beautiful than usual when she tied her hair. That ponytail hair, reminds me of my no.1 waifu Eli Ayase. Hotaru definitely looks a lot attractive that way. They were running a lot but I was a bit disappointed that there wasn’t much good boob physics lol! When Hotaru was super tired and Kokonotsu just left her there, I was really disappointed about that part. He could have been more of a gentleman or something. I know I definitely would if such scenario happened. It was kinda funny how they tried to make it dramatic though.

In the end the running was all pointless because Saya was able to look into the sketchbook anyway. With that means Kokonotsu is pretty much dead. I wonder if there is any effect in the future, but I don’t think it’s such a big deal, unless you are Saya of course. Not a bad episode overall. There was more effort in terms of animation since they were running and all. Not sure what kinda of crazy ideas they got next week, but I hope it’s a lot crazier. Thanks for reading.

Dagashi Kashi Episode 3

Now that’s a fun episode to watch. After the disappointing 2nd episode, I thought that the 3rd episode might be similar, but turns out it’s as good as the first episode. As mentioned in the previous post, it’s a lot more interesting when all the character plays apart in the show. They definitely did just that this week. Bunch of stuff going on too, and guess what Kokonotsu’s dad is back, lol! I really like his dad.

222

It’s summer and it’s really hot, but it got hotter when Hotaru is around. Sure she is hot, but she had to turn of the aircon during the summer and boil hot water to make it hotter. Good thing is Tou knows what to wait for though. Such a hentai Tou is, but it’s really nice seeing Hotaru eat, such foodporn. I really didn’t expect them to go as far as revealing Hotaru’s bra though. That got a bit too far I guess, but not a bad thing 😉

333

This episode is really fun to watch, I really like the pool part. They were all excited to see all the girl in swimsuits in the pool, but no one was there, rofl! Good thing Kokonotsu’s dad was around, he was the best part as always. That conspiring between Kokonotsu’s dad and Hotaru was unexpected though. It was really funny for me. Never mind the failure part, at least I got to see Hotaru in her swimsuit! She still looks nice with the jacket. Saya on the other hand really looks like a grade school student though, such disappointment.

444

The 3rd part was just as fun to watch. Hotaru vs Tou. Although Tou didn’t mean anything Hotaru though she was challenged. That baseball throw was nice and funny. Knowing the sweet is still rotating in Tou’s mouth, lol! The part where Hotaru goes to the cafe wasn’t bad either, I really like the part when she talks with Saya. They are really good friends.

555

I kinda notice that there was actually a lot of info about sweets every time Hotaru introduced some new sweets. Although it’s trivial, but it’s actually not bad at all. The new ending song, not bad. I really love the energy Hotaru gives every time she talks. We’ll be seeing a lot of those as always, but hopefully they don’t ran out of ideas like the 2nd episode. I’m very satisfied about this episode though. It’s very entertaining, and fun again. Hoping for the best for the next episode. Thanks for reading.

Dagashi Kashi Episode 2

The second episode wasn’t as good as the first, but still fun to watch. It lack humor because Kokonatsu’s dad isn’t around this time. All the candy treats, Hotaru being drunk and that card game kinda makes it decent to watch at least. Can’t say I’m really pleased about this episode. Quite a lot of downsides unlike the first episode. It lacks creativity, and it’s still kinda early to run out of ideas this early in the series.

222

I was disappointed that there isn’t much to laugh this time. After watching it till the end, I found out that this show is really not that good with just Hotaru and Kokonatsu around. It needs at least one more character to make it better. While Hotaru is really lively, I can’t say the same about Kokonatsu. He is so normal, that it kinda bores me. Saya kinda saved this episode at the end, but overall it was decent I guess. Hopefully the next episode is a lot more interesting.

333

The Kinako stick part wasn’t that bad, but that Namaiki beer part is at least a lot more interesting to me. Seeing Hotaru drunk is kinda nice, but she is just blabbering nonsense most of the time, kinda wish she did something crazier. At least she is cute when she is drunk. I really don’t like Ramune Whistle part, that’s probably what makes the show kinda meh this week. The menko card game was the best part of the show though. Seeing Saya being better than everyone else was kinda good. The shocking face from Kokonatsu and Hotaru was priceless.

444

I just hope the show gets back on track soon, because I don’t feel like blogging if the show isn’t that good. It’ll just make me look bad, because I’ll start whining and complaining again. What would make this show good if there is more characters in it. Kokonatsu and Hotaru alone just doesn’t cut it for me. I guess I miss having Kokonatsu’s dad around? Probably. Having Saya around more often would make it good too. Hopefully it gets better in the next episode, because this episode is just decent for me. Thanks for reading.

Dagashi Kashi First Impressions

This anime is just entertaining. Definitely worth the watch so far. It’s pretty funny, and find this show really relaxing, maybe because of the atmosphere and the settings. What I like that most about this show has to be that purple haired girl. She is the best thing about the show so far. The animation is pretty good as well for this type of show, and the character design is alright I guess, nothing amazing. There is a bunch of reference from other anime shows as well, which is pretty nice. If you want something entertaining this season, I guess Dagashi Kashi is the answer to that.

2

Lets get down to the characters first. The main character in this show is Shikada Kokonotsu and Shidare Hotaru. Kokonotsu is a guy who is interest in the 2d world. Although it’s not apparent, but Kokonotsu dad reveals that pretty early in the show. He seems normal at least, unlike Shidare Hotaru. Hotaru is one interesting girl, I really like her. It is what makes this show so good so far. She is very cute, energetic and speaks directly about anything that is in her mind. The other side characters plays a huge role in making this show great as well. Like Kokonotsu’s dad, most things that I laughed involves him in the process. Kokonotsu has one awesome dad. There is also that coffee shop girl Endou Saya, which is going to make this show a lot more interesting.

Besides the characters, the animation is pretty good. The background scenery and the environment was animated very well by Feel. My main problem at the start was the character design though, everything is alright except for the eyes, but that problem wasn’t really a problem at all in the end. Once I watch the anime for like 5 minutes or so, I got used to the eyes and everything is just fine in the end. The soundtrack is pretty nice too, just creates the atmosphere of living in small town far away from the city.

4

The story seems alright. Kokonotsu wants to be a manga artist, while his dad wants him to inherit his candy shop. Then comes Hotaru in the show, where she wants Kokonotsu’s dad to work for her dad’s company. However, Kokonotsu’s dad will only agree if she can convince Kokonotsu to take over the family business. A good enough start to get us watching this in my opinion. Endou Saya might also be playing some important role in this anime as well, just watch it if you haven’t, to find out about it. It’s gonna be one hell of a fun show.

5

Overall, I really enjoyed watching this show. It made me laughed a few times, and Hotaru just makes the show fun to watch for me. The opening song and ending song is pretty good too. I kinda wish the opening song was longer because the best part was too short and it ends right after. I need to full version of the opening song. I’d recommend anyone to watch this if they are into comedy and slice of life. Everyone who watches this is going to like it, I don’t see much problem for anyone to not pick this up. Thanks for reading, look forward for more first impressions soon.
