The community has mixed opinions on the announcement, with fans mainly sharing disbelief and concern:

Dagashi Kashi candy trivia, ecchi, slice-of-life series follows the life of Kokonotsu and his pursuit of becoming a manga artist. However, he is a terrible artist and only knows about snacks. Kokonotsu never thought about running his father’s shop until the eccentric Hotaru showed up. Hotaru is the heiress to a snack conglomerate and she believes Kokonotsu possesses incredible talent.

 Kotoyama’s manga began serialization in June 2014 and feel produced a 12-episode adaptation during the Winter 2016 season.
