However, this may start to change with the arrival of the eccentric Hotaru Shidare. Hotaru is in search of Kokonotsu's father, with the goal of bringing him back to work for her family's company, Shidare Corporation, a world famous sweets manufacturer. Although the senior Shikada initially refuses, he states that he will change his mind on one condition: if Hotaru can convince Kokonotsu to take over the family shop. And so begins Hotaru's mission to enlighten the boy on the true joy of delicious and nostalgic dagashi!
The Anime can be watched on FUNimation...
So yeah I REALLY don't know what to make of this anime!!! I thought it was about a girl from a rival candy store trying to get the master of another store to join their business by making the son take over for the dad... That would in turn free the dad up to join her father's company like he wants... but it is so much more than that and I didn't even notice!
