From the looks of this it looks like a slice of life that has some good moments here and there. In any case it looks like a fun series to check out for this season.

Yeah it's funny to watch old commercial references about snacks, their mascots (or lack of them) as seen in ep.2... Also games and toys bundled that kids used to play often, this would be my favorite new comedy if it wasn't for Konosuba

what is this? It looks like one big history lesson and information series about sweets. Of course the story seems to be not so important but somehow this series is able to remain interesting. Hotaru is one crazy girl who actually is fun to watch. Kokonutsu and all the others try to remain normal but are taken in by her craziness. And i must say i also find it interesting to see what kind of candy she will explain this time and hype to oblivion
. A simple but fun series till now.

That role reversal and video acting actually made me wonder if Hotaru's dad is not going for the wrong guy. Coconatsu knows just as much as his dad and is pretty inspiring about candy. He could even make the wrappers for the candy to promote his manga skills..

Long lost sisters?


Anna Sempai has very little on Hotaru...

Aside for being a dangerously deranged nympho.... POINT GOES TO ANNA SEMPAI! (I'd risk it!)

Hotaru is going to end up in the "Big & Wide" girls club within the year with the way she eats though...

Hey!

I finally remembered where it was that these character designs remind me of...

Does anyone here remember "The Law Of Ueki"? Yup. Totally. All we're missing is Tenko! (And I'm sure that there will be a mascot snuck-in there somewhere that will resemble him too!)

Calorie Queen ED a hint? ;p for me, her sakurabo gif beats Anna's pic as suggestive! Shokugeki no Soma wins so far... About ep'6 to think Saya loves Coconuts since playing doctor, still cute flashback after its long week-break

It was indeed a bit nice to see how Saya had liked him since then. Hotaru is still one strange girl. I wonder which candy will be next.

It was indeed a nice deviation from the original setting. Saya really likes Coconuts and everyone around her supports it. However i wonder if Coconuts likes her as much. We get to see him look flushed around Hotaru but does he like Saya more than just good childhood friend. In all indeed a nice episode again.

Somehow the episode felt a little weaker as previous episodes. Sure the ghost story with a scared Saya was okay but it felt a bit weak on the story of the candy compared to previous episodes. The kendama was indeed better with Saya showing her skills (for a toy you can do a lot of things
). Coconuts and To do have a mean streak with wanting to see panties..Hotaru probably doesn't even notice or care about them trying to watch hers.

But 'boob' instead of Egg ('bomb') Ice cream to Coconuts, Hotaru's parents must be odd asking her to recruit his dad

Hotaru's parents must indeed be odd. Even building a house for her. It was pretty strange again with her being at home due to the mount ulcer. Did we actually see Coconuts care for Hotaru??
Her medicine really took the cake of strangeness: using powdered dagashi as a medicine was stupid even for Hotaru.

Did we actually see Coconuts care for Hotaru?Maybe but funny how it looks like he was "tempting" her with dagashi, as drugs yet she resisted clinging on saya... still some tries were enough to break such a willpower going crazier, at least ep'11 shows why his dad is wanted by hotaru

Episode 11 does indeed show why they want his father even if he does eat the stock of the store.

Also coconuts seems to have some feelings for hotaru. Could become interesting in a strange way

yes after all he asked Tou how to become popular with girls in its finale, coconuts would get her attention anyway if she knew he was eating... still it's one-sided because she loves yuri dagashi mascots ;p a weird but fun comedy, I don't mind a S2 in case there is enough manga material
