Dagashi Kashi 2 is bringing in lots of hype as it takes us back to the world of cheap Japanese snacks. Now, as its January 2018 debut draws ever closer, the new anime reveals a new PV. This new video introduces us to the anime’s newest addition, Hajime Owari.

Chinatsu Akasaki voices the character, and she’s also the one narrating the new PV. The anime’s new key visual also features her alongside Hotaru herself.

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, while Nana Miura takes over the character designs for Kanetoshi Kamimoto. Finally, Satoshi Kuwabara will now act as the anime’s new director.
