Soon, no candy shop will be safe from the watchful gaze of Hotaru! Or something!

Earlier today, the official Dagashi Kashi anime’s Twitter account posted several new character design sheets. Ten total design documents were uploaded, which show off the following characters:

  • Hotaru Shidare: An ambitious, yet eccentric daughter of the owner of a leading candy company
  • Kokonotsu Shikada: The son of a rural candy store owner who sees his future out of the family business. He aspires to be a manga artist.
  • Yō Shikada: Kokonotsu’s father
  • Saya & To Endō: Friends of Konkotsu, with Saya being his best friend. The two are fraternal twins.

Dagashi Kashi is based on Kotoyama’s manga of the same name. The series is being directed by Shigehito Takayanagi (The World God Only Knows) at studio feel. Takayanagi will also oversee the show’s scripts with Yasuko Kamo (Galaxy Angel A). Character designs will be handled by Kanetoshi Kamimoto (Burst Angel).

The series will make its Japanese TV début in January 2016, on TBS and BS-TBS.
