It looks like Funimation has somehow caught the pranking bug and a sweet tooth at the same time. How odd.

Earlier today, Funimation announced that they will stream Dagashi Kashi 2 and Karakai Jozu no Takagi-san (Takagi-san, the Master of Teasing) as part of their Winter 2018 SimulDub lineup.

As of press time, specific première dates have yet to be announced for either adaptation. The two titles join eight other confirmed SimulDub shows:

  • Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card
  • Death March to The Parallel World Rhapsody
  • Katana Maidens ~ Toji no Miko
  • Citrus
  • Junji Ito Collection
  • Basilisk: The Ouka Ninja Scrolls
  • Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens

Dagashi Kashi 2

Satoshi Kuwabara (Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal, Dr. Pinoko no Mori no Bōken) will direct Dagashi Kashi 2 at Tezuka Productions, with Nana Miura (Young Black Jack) providing character designs. Mayumi Morita is in charge of series composition for the project.

Crunchyroll is also streaming Dagashi Kashi 2 as a simulcast. They describe the series as:

In the second season of Dagashi Kashi, the story follows Kokonotsu, who does not want to inherit his family’s rural candy store as his father wishes. A girl named Hotaru, who’s crazy about small-time candy stores, appears at the store and repeatedly visits in order to convince him to take it over.

Karakai Jozu no Takagi-san

Karakai Jozu no Takagi-san is based on Sōichirō Yamamoto’s manga of the same name. Hiroaki Akagi (Hina Logic – from Luck & Logic) will direct the show at Shin-Ei Animation, with Aya Takano (Himouto! Umaru-chan, Polar Bear’s Cafe) providing character designs. Michiko Yokote (Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!, Genshiken) is in charge of series composition for the project.

Crunchyroll is also streaming Karakai Jozu no Takagi-san as part of their Winter simulcast lineup. They describe the title as:

“I swear I’m going to tease and embarrass Takagi-san today!”

Nishikata, a middle-schooler, keeps getting teased by the girl who sits next to him in class, Takagi-san.

He tries every day to get back at her, but will he ever succeed? Takagi-san and Nishikata’s youthful teasing battle starts now!
