This show would be a lot better if it was comprised entirely of these little sketches.
The candy based parodies and the tits are the best part of this.
Give up because she's already ore no mono.
The author was certainly wise in his creation of female characters to appeal to a mass audience in his efforts to spread knowledge of candy history.
This show is weird, I was in Japan with my family from 87 to 93 and all the candy they show is the same stuff we used to have. I don't think the industry has innovated a thing except new umaibo dust flavors.
Sure I was like 8 at the time but I remember these snacks pretty well
How many people watching even get this shit? Who is this show aimed at?
Kids aren't gonna get it and adults who watched this shit would be like in their 40s at the bare minimum
He is the hero this series deserves.
holy shit i thought i was alone on this or I was just seeing some crazy shit
problem is I can't tell if i dig it or not
It's a wistful show that ruminates on the age of the late 20th when Japs could actually run a business on the 5 and 10 yen candy margin from kids alone... so yes, this is a weird niche show for older people.
The small town dagashi of the 80s is dead thanks to economic changes, lower birth rate, and this stuff being sold at convenience stores and markets and so on.
I don't know why people think this is boring.
I mean, Saya is here.
And I played that game when I was a kid too.
I like this show.
>people think this is boring
There are people out there saying that this is boring?
dagashi makes everyone feel like a child again.
I don't like it
It happens a lot in the manga as well, but it's jarring how she goes from small to gigantic so often.
But at least it's not like Symphogear, they some times gave a Tsubasa gigantic tits when she's suppose to be flat.
Her tits were never small but they were sure bigger in second ep. The manga is pretty inconsistent too.
I love her nails, her entire design is top tier. It all works so well together that I have a hard time singling out a favorite feature.
It's just that I see people saying they look like shit on her. Nails like that on a girl like her get me diamonds, though.
Even if they don't match the color of her outfit or hair at all.
I like painted nails, I wish it was a feature used more often in anime and yeah, it works really well on Hotaru. I think red is ok on her, maybe a lavender color would look a little better though.
Woah woah woah wait a fucking minute I checked sad panda and hitomi and it wasn't there fucking sauce please.
Damm man, the OST of this show reminded me so much of NNB. Especially that BGM when he was staring at Hotari tits.
Should have kept going. What a shitty job.
I only now notice that she wears suspenders, too.
What a fucking dork. Hotaru is a DORK.
>first 1/3rd of the episode is talking about how to eat powdery candy without spilling
>beta MC deals with psycho girl's autism
This show is boring.
It's no surprise that 90 percent of the discussions on this show are waifufags talking about whether the psycho autist or the NoKirinoLookalike is the best girl.
I remember reading on a different thread that it's called "virgin killer" because virgins would have no idea how to remove the clothing in a meaningful amount of time nor in any sort of elegant fashion.
>women wearing intricate clothes kill the virgin
I swear her tits got bigger in the second episode.
>spergs out about a particular topic
>acts weirdly in her general actions
>owns glasses, which she occasionally wears
Hotaru confirmed for being a NEEEEERRRRRDDDDD
Would you challenge Hotarou to a game of Candy Russian Roulette?
Hotaru is a biter, not a licker when it comes to popsicles.
Note that this is not the first time she has used her "secret compartment."
I read "strapon" as "weapon" and imagined Hotaru cutting off his dick.
I wish they made this as 3 or 7 minutes shorts instead. This show as it is feels really dragged out and the punchlines aren't delivered as good as the manga.
I want to have drunken sex with Hotaru!
How is it that I like Hotaru's body more but I want to cuddle with Saya and gently love her.
I think Hotaru is finally giving me a hand fetish.
But they aren't. She's not THAT outgoing, anon.
I wouldn't go that far, Hotaru is a fine girl too, but to my surprise I locked on Saya and that's it.
Also they really like each other too so it's fine anyway.
Prime wife material.
Makes a mean coffee too.
I'm a former wizard and I had an OJ slammer.
I'm sure for this show the older nips are making fun of younger otaku who have never had certain candy and such.
We just need the High Score Girl anime now. Even gaijin could relate to some of the jokes, like trying to decide to join the line to play either SF2 or Mortal Kombat.
Does Dagashi Kashi have the best OP this season? It's just so comfy, funny, and jazzy.
Though the first half and the end are way better than the rest.
Can't wait for the finished version, it's supposed to be done by episode 3, right?
He doesn't want to run that candy store, and its pretty clear from the outset that his dad wants to use the candy store to teach him how to run a business so that he can enter the corporate world and become the next big thing. Right now his character struggle is he is a very talented entrepreneur who has no ambition whatsoever (besides anime because anime is awesome and stuff), which is problematic.
>How does love taste like?
>Want to... know how love tastes like?
>(Turn your face this way...) (Yes...)
>Stop... that's... that thing is...
>What?! Why are you getting so close?!
>Hotaru-chan, what are you doing? That sort of thing is...!
>You eyes are so close...
>What?! Wait, we shouldn't...
what is this?
I think it is some sort of bell.
how pronounce it in japanese(to googling)?
I don't know if you bitches have ever lived with a woman period so let me tell you, nail polish fucking REEKS. It's probably among the most nauseating smells I've ever smelled, and I've smelled Sulfur, people who smoked a pack a day of cigarettes, semi-spoiled food shits and burnt rubber.
>people who smoked a pack a day of cigarettes
Oh come on
They dont smell that bad
It's a gag manga/anime. What are people expecting? It's literally a giant nipponese candy advertisement plus girls with good design, dumbass beta MC, story goes nowhere.
Enjoy the tits and the fang.
I really want to enjoy tits and the fang but I have so much other shit on my watching list right now as well as in my backlog.
To this come studies for college, practice, training and partying and I have basically no time to spare for a few shitty gags.
I will still read the doujinshi.
You reek, your clothes reek, your room reeks
even if you only smoke outside, it's in your hair, on your skin, your breath.
You will simply reek and everybody looks at you and says: Yeah, this guy smokes a pack a day.
My best friends parents are heavy smokers.
Now you're going to tell me that regular paint smells bad.
Nail polish smells good and the nail polish remover has a quite strong but nice smell.
I don't see the beta.
He's not pic related tier yet
...and? Look, half the people who like her more are surprised it turned out like that too.
If you think that Commie's translations are good, then you are either an idiot or simply don't understand Japanese.
Their lines are often very wrong, and I don't mean "liberal" where you can at least connect the line to the original meaning. They very often add or remove sentences that make NO appearance in ANY of the surrounding lines. "I thought we were friends!" makes absolutely no appearance anywhere near the line, let alone anywhere in the episode. There is no line even close to or suggestive of that, and is a purely made-up line thrown in for the sake of being retarded.
Commie also has proven that they can't even deal with simple counters, translating 二本 to "Japan" when they were COUNTING Umaibo in the scene.
I don't know who made you think Commie is "good" but you should stop listening to them.
And so the only option is to add an entirely new sentence which has absolutely no relation to the line that was actually said, in turn actually changing the script?
You can't just make up a line and say you translated it, because that's not a translation.
I think it's an attempt to weasel their way back into NT. I know they got banned because of some bullshit, but they're still banned and it probably hurts their DLs
I didn't watch their release because Mori's the best one, but they don't usually bad subs in my opinion. Though, I highly doubt they will be able to keep their workrate up (Chihiro's Jitsu wa Watashi wa is still stuck at episode 10 and doki released Cinderella Girls 25 last week)
I do hope Chihiro can keep up with Phantom World, but I'm already losing hope for Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo.
The real question is what's NOT good about Saya. I find myself inevitably attracted to her as many anons here. Its undeniable there's a charm around her that makes you feel nice. Hotaru is fun and have those boobs but she doesn't project that aura. Maybe its because of her behavior, she's fun and friendly but feels somehow detached.
Probably look like this
That was caused by antibiotics though.
>The real question is what's NOT good about Saya
She's flat, really skinny, her only redeemable physical feature are her legs and her tiny compact butt, has absolutely no flair, she's really meek and not very expressive (most of the time) and I like her very very much and can't help it.
Dude Okuma is a boss.
>refuses to let his old crush rape him
>falls in love with a Japanezu beauty later
>has a six pack and can suplex fags heavier than him
>actually convinces said beaut to go out with him
I don't find anything noteworthy about her but it's nice that you do. She's a nice girl but I enjoy watching Hotaru and all of her craziness more.
>go to shark0week0's Twitter page, the guy who is "translating" Dagashi Kashi for Commie
The dude has trouble reading a katakana sign. Fucking kataKANA. With this, and the mistakes Commie was shown to make above, remind me again why people take this guy and Commie seriously? Are the people who download and defend Commie just retarded, or...? What is the explanation for this phenomenon?
No, it's not. You localise by rewriting the translated line to make sense to target audience while keeping the meaning similar. You can localise wordplay or a pun this way for example.
However, making shit up and putting in lines which have absolutely no analogues in the original script is neither translation or localisation.
>every episode is 20m, divided in two 10m segments back to back, every segment covers two dagashi, effectively two ca5m sketches fused
>niggers still make this complaint from day 1
>be ass man
>also be hotaru man
your poll is flawed, and I will not be voting
Is this how /a/ likes they're women?
>tfw watching dagashi kashi while munching on salt water taffy, peppermint sticks, candy cigarettes, gumdrops, and caramels
How does hotaru stay thin if she eats sweets all the time?
Bulimia? Tapeworms? Is she a lich like Kyoko?
They are small sweets dude, never had any like those?
I don't think even a pack of those shits goes above 200 Cal.
If you don't eat above your avg calorie intake then you have room for those.
Is mori just a much better release or is this shot not representative?
This show's great. probably gonna put a big order down for these sweets after the show's over. Traditional british sweets look utter shit next to the weirdness of these.
>rifle has sight
I wonder why no one points out that she forgot her little hat?
Holy shit, my dick.
Those delicious natural braless sagging tits.
>>Coconuts is a shitty MC.
* Helps runs his dad's candy shop in the countryside.
* Wants to become a mango artist.
* Has a crush on a girl.
* Had talent for (selling) candy.
* Another girl wants his "D" and he probably would give it to her.
FUCK YOU, go back to watching your favorite "cute girls doing cute things" animu, and enjoy your beta / non-existent shounen.
>and he probably would give it to her
It's not how it works. Saya lost before it even started.
>tits on his head and face
>thighs in both of his hands
>It's eco friendly!
Oh Coconuts, you so crazy.
Plain janes are attractive in their own right, in part because the plain-ness itself is almost unreal.
But that's not the whole story. The combination of that bored, disengaged country attitude, gaggly, awkward limbs, love of coffee and bitter palette, nice legs, flat chest, long and straight hair, and delinquent bottle-blonde hair mixed with an array of multiple ear piercings giving just the hint of a wild-side that dares to want a little more out of life -a little adventure.
It's so down to earth, yet so ideal at the same time.
I love this OP
>mou boogie oogie wakanai
In the war.
No, he probably just bumped his head on something.
In part, the same way that the bulkbarn or similar candy/bulk food store does: they sell in large quantities.
In a few other shows I've seen, the local dagashiya of a rural town also serves as the general store, being essentially the equivalent to a post office and the like.They probably make good money charging as a middle-man for postage and package deliveries, as well as being the general liaison between the town and the outside world.
The actual candy shop portion seems more like kids section of what's essentially a general store.
You don't. The dad does part time work elsewhere.
I don't think I've ever heard of something like that existing outside of like, the most rural of rural areas. I think they're all but extinct beyond the rice paddies, lumber towns and islands.
Asahi or Kirin?
That is the question.
They were just part of the raw whichever sub group was using, since they were mostly ripped right from tv broadcasts, and the group chose to leave them in for whatever reason.
The raw that simulcasters get is pre-airing and doesn't include any ads or sponsor messages beyond the company's own affiliates (eg. Noitamina, funimation, hulu, etc).
>mfw local dive bar has sapporo on tap for $1
The cutest of muffins.
Hotaru is objectively the better choice. She was created for the sole purpose of repopulating the Japanese master race with her kin, whose genetic addiction to dagashi will sustain the domestic dagashi industry for a thousand generations and eliminate all desire for drug and alcohol addictions long after the rest of the world fades into oblivion.
has there been any good anime inbetween JoJo?
Up until now it's generic or boring as shit
>Cute girl does silly things while obsessing over kitschy little kid garbage from the 1970s.
Talk about a terrible premise being well-executed.
Hnngh, too cute.
literally every tsudere character would be unbelievably annoying in the real world
so them plus zany characters plus autistically nice characters would make about 9/10 anime girls so annoying you'd want to kill them in an hour
That feeling when. I want to drink with Hotaru.
They have some very neat candy and some very odd candy.
I had a Japanese exchange student friend in middle/high school and sometimes he'd bring back variety bags of all kinds of dagashi after return trips. A lot of it was so-so but some of it was really fucking awesome. For I recall one that came in little tic-tac sized boxes and dispensed tiny pill-looking candies that you chewed like gum for a few minutes, but the gum then dissolved into a kind of pineapple-y powdery stuff in your mouth.
For overall snacks (not candy but salty stuff) they had a bunch of shit that I often did not like much at all. Smoked fish or squid etc sound nice in text as snacks but eating them.. man, really fucking strong/gamey fish/iodine influence, they really don't seem to mind that at all.
With her falling in love with someone else? I really just want something with romancing saya. Living out in the sticks spending summers locked in each others embrace and fucking
Why is she crying?
Since Dagashi aren't top-selling super brands, their degree of innovation is pretty low. Most come from the war and post-war times where resources and incomes were kinda low in many families, especially rural.
Nowadays children have some more money at hand and just buy the fancy conbini shit if they so desire. But even conbini still have some dagashi usually.
I see you had your three semesters of japanese and started considering translating anime, good for you.
Let me tell you that you are full of shit, even if the 二本 thing is inexcusable on another level.
Hotaru's so dreamy.
I know I'm 7 hours late, but I just want to let you know you're wrong.
Does anyone else get worried about Hotaru's teeth? She spends whole episodes stuffing her face with sweets. It makes me very tense hoping that she brushes and flosses properly after that.
Hotaru seems like a blast to drink with.
20 something Hotaru when? She'll be even more hotter.
I haven't seen either at any of my usual bars.
I'll have to pick them up at my bottle shop.
No, it's a common defect that many Japanese girls have.
