Funimation released a three-minute teaser to promote the title:

Dagashi Kashi is the latest addition to Funimation’s Broadcast Dub lineup. The first episode hit earlier this evening, and new episodes are slated to hit weekly during the company’s “Dubbletalk” block.

Dagashi Kashi kicked off on January 7. The series is based on Kotoyama’s manga of the same name. Shigehito Takayanagi (The World God Only Knows) is directing the title 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).

Funimation describes Dagashi Kashi as follows:

Kokonotsu “Coconuts” Shikada dreams of becoming a famous manga artist. The only problem—he’s terrible. His real talent is selling the complex and delicious snacks in his father’s “dagashi” shop. He never thought much about the family business until the trendy, eccentric Hotaru showed up. As a lover of “dagashi,” she can’t let his talent go to waste and decides she won’t stop ‘til she’s sold him on sweets.

Crunchyroll is streaming Dagashi Kashi in the Middle East and North Africa.
