The plot of Dagashi Kashi

Shikada Dagashi, a countryside shop selling cheap candy and snacks has been run by the Shikada family. They have been running this shop for nine generations. Yō Kokonotsu ( newest generation) does not want to take over the shop from his father, because Yō doesn’t want to be a shopkeeper and instead of being a shopkeeper, he aims to become a manga artist. One day Hotaru Shidare, an abnormal busty girl who is very passionate about sweets and snacks visits the shop hoping to recruit Yō to her family’s company. She is the daughter of the sweets manufacturer Shidare Corporation, but Yō refuses unless Hotaru first can convince Kokonotsu to take over Shikada Dagashi. Dagashi Kashi has been adapted into a 24-episode anime series.
