It looks like this cozy little sweet shop got a bit smaller since the last time we saw it.
Earlier today, the official Dagashi Kashi anime website updated with a new teaser trailer for the show’s second season, as well as a key visual, broadacast details and a pair of new cast members. We break the details down below:
The 87-second promo features narration by the show’s four leads.
The new visual features the major cast members hanging out in the candy shop. Hajime, Hotaru, and Saya take the front-and-center positions while Kokonatsu and To are relegated to the background.

Dagashi Kashi‘s first season aired in the Winter 2016 broadcast season.
The series is based on Kotoyama’s manga of the same name. Shigehito Takayanagi (The World God Only Knows) directed the title at studio feel. Takayanagi also oversaw the show’s scripts with Yasuko Kamo (Galaxy Angel A). Character designs will be handled by Kanetoshi Kamimoto (Burst Angel).
Funimation currently holds the domestic rights to Dagashi Kashi‘s first season, which they describe as:
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.
A teaser trailer for Dagashi Kashi 2 was released earlier this month. You can check it out below.
