Ep 2 of Dagashi Kashi brings back the sexy-ness.
Here’s my review!
I’m still trying to figure out how to review a show this short and not really story filled. Much like ep 1, there are two skits and that’s it, so between Coconuts showing a baseball themed candy to Saya and Hotaru, to the two girls bathing, there isn’t much happening in this ep.
As the title implies, it’s a stormy day for the candy gang as a typhoon has them holed up in the candy shop. The baseball themed snack is a gum dispenser that grands you vouchers if you get the right colored gum. In classic Hotaru fashion though (aside from her appearing out of nowhere) she fails to win anything. But that point is quickly pushed aside as Saya points out Hotaru is soaking wet from running all the way to the store in the pouring rain, and as luck would have it, her white top is now see-through revealing a lacy black bra. Makes me think of that ep in S1 where her top got wet and showed off her bra.
From there, the ep branches into bathing as one can’t stay wet too long because they’ll catch the infamous anime cold. Oh and somewhere in all this Tou shows up too. Seriously, people just spawn in randomly in this show. Anyways, because of the stormy weather outside, Coconuts suggests they stay the night and of course Saya is embarrassed by that while Hotaru seems unfazed about staying over at a boys house. But first things first, Hotaru needs a bath to warm up and she’s drafted Saya to come with her.
Once in the bath tub, Hotaru wants to play something. No, sadly nothing lewd, rather a steam-powered toy boat. Sounds advanced as it involves lighters and blowing water but the end result is this little boat racing around in the bath tub with these two naked girls. While all this is going on, Coconuts and Tou are outside struggling with the issues of peeping on the girls as they bathe or not. Tou is all for it while Coconuts wants to take the more sensible approach and wait for the right moment to gaze at Hotaru’s boobs freely, without risking becoming a criminal in the process. But of course Saya foils their plan before they can get any further. I did find it a bit weird how Tou was so intent on doing this, I mean it’s his sister after all, and it’s not like she’s got the big guns like Hotaru has. Oh well, to each his own.
We end the ep with Coconuts in the bath tub now where he finds the toy boat the girls were playing with. Realizing he has a chance at an indirect kiss via the straw Hotaru used to blow water into the boat, he goes for it, only to be stopped as Hotaru pokes her head into the bathroom, telling him he’s free to play with the boat too. More classic Hotaru, completely unfazed that he’s naked into the tub.
Sorry if this felt like a jumble, I’m honestly not sure how to cover this show in a non-summery type way. Normally I’d talk about the story and such but it’s hard to really get into a commentary when it’s just two short skits. Whatever the case, that’s it for ep 2. Still getting used to the shorter eps, they seem to end so quickly now. Maybe once Owari Hajime shows up things will get a bit more interesting and I can write something that’s not just a play-by-play of the ep.
That’s it for ep 2, be sure to leave a comment below if you’ve got anything to say about the ep. I’ll try my bet to reply as fast as I can.
Thanks for reading and I’ll see you next weekend!
