Dagashi Kashi is getting a new season, but it’s also getting a new look as well. With Young Black Jack’s Nana Miura taking over character design, the candy-loving gang now looks quite different. This is all to evident in the anime’s new PV, which introduces the main cast, as well as a new character.

That new character’s name is Hajime Owari, and she also stars in the anime’s new key visual. Oh, and Hotaru is there too because this is Dagashi Kashi after all.

But while the anime’s staff is having some major changes, the cast remains the same. This means that the main cast will pretty much return, and they compose of:

  • Hotaru Shidare: Ayana Taketatsu
  • Kokonotsu Shikada: Atsushi Abe
  • Saya Endo: Manami Numakura
  • Tou Endo: Tatsuhisa Suzuki

The new season will premiere sometime in 2018, with Tezuka Productions now taking over the animation production for feel. Satoshi Kuwabara will now also act as the anime’s new director.
