Hi, YUKI here! Recently, I’ve been to many dagashiya (candy) shops for real. I want to do some fun PR event featuring dagashi giveaways … stay tuned! Alright, let’s go right into our review of the anime Dagashikashi episode 3.
Episode 3: Buta-Men and Kuru Kuru Bou Jelly, and…
On a hot mid-summer day, Hotaru abruptly turns off the AC of the shop and persuades Kokonotsu, plus Toh, to join her in enjoying ultimate Buta-Men, a hot noodle snack.
As the heat intensifies, Kokonotsu gets dizzy. Before he gets a heat stroke, he manages to convince Hotaru to turn on the AC to cool down the shop. However, the switch doesn’t work…

New opening and ending themes
It looks like the opening and ending songs and animations have been updated! The opening scene is so cool ~ I especially love the Hotrau in that Alice-in-Wonderland inspired outfit, oh gosh she’s too cute, I was giggly. You’ve got to see it!
Buta-men and Kuru-kuru-Jelly
Buta-men has finally made an appearance in the show. Darn, I miss Buta-men! Imagine a cheap instant noodle in a styrofoam cup, and then, shrink the cup size. There you go, you now have Buta-men. This’s one of my favorite childhood snacks.
As Hotaru mentioned in the show, the tonkotsu pork soup flavor is the way to go. If you have a chance to try it for the very first time, pick tonkotsu flavor. I bet you will be hooked!
After taking too much heat from the passionate Hotaru and steamy Buta-men, everybody agreed to hit the pool.
Yay, cool! Swimsuits! I was excited, until, I saw Hotaru walking on the poolside, in a hoodie jacket covering her swimsuit.
You know what? I dig the hoodie over the swimsuit.
Bontan-ame & Seven-neon
The latter part of the episode quickly turns into dagashi trivia. Hey everybody! Pay close attention and learn how to eat Bontan-ame and Seven-neon properly, ok? Interaction between Hotaru and two of the Endo siblings are very comical. Enjoy Hotaru’s face reactions.
Speaking of Hotaru’s face reactions, this episode is a good showcase of her talent in funny reactions, as she has a ton of them in her repertory.
Also I love the ending!
This anime makes me reminiscent with all the good memories of dagashi… I crave them right now… Actually some of the dagashi are great with beer. So not only kids but also grown-ups can enjoy dagashi too!
Well, excuse me, I think I’m going to snack off a bit now…
