I just briefly checked out some of the manga to get a feel for it. it looks like it will be quite funny. I also like the setting, sleepy town away from hustle and bustle. Perfect setting for hi-jinx. I bet Shidare Hotaru is going to become quite popular as well. I'm always down for more comedy.

"Ok, we have plenty of interessting manga that we could adopt!" - "Nah bro, let's just play save and go with something mediocre again."
~ The story of how this got an anime adaptation

It's not bad, it's just Hotaru being a little bit too much of an abhorrent human being to enjoy this as a comedy for me. Could have work as a horror story tho

I assume it would be a short series like Tonari no Seki-kun.

I've read a decent amount of this and I'm not sure how it will be received. It is very much Japanese sweet/candy store fanservice using a lot of references that us dirty westerners won't get.

Hotaru has big boobs and gets a yoghurt facial so I suppose that's something for those of us who don't know jack about Japanese candy.

I don't this show or any anime targeted at audience outside of Japan.

Yeah, most of the references wouldn't be understood outside of Japan and difficult to catch the humor it has to offer, but it does try to explain it decently well though.

Very nice. Shidare is a complete fruit loop in the manga and those characters designs give me faith we will be seeing her in all her bonkers glory.

Also that the accidental yoghurt facial from the omakes (if it makes it in) will be as strangely erotic as I hope it will be.
