Shimazaki Nobunaga as Irino Nagomu
It’s a very warm and wonderful story.
I want to do my best to make it a work that will make people want to know more about wagashi and Kyoto, the setting, as they watch the anime. Please look forward to this heartwarming story about the bonds formed by wagashi!
Kozue Yuki as Yukihira Itsuka
Nice to meet you.
I’m Yuki Kozue, and I’ll be voicing Yukihira Itsuka.
I’m really happy to be able to be involved in such a kind and warm work.
I will do my best to convey Ichika’s thoughts and feelings in my voice and deliver them to everyone, even if only a little!
Director Oizaki Fumitoshi
There are no transformations, no battles, not even that many girls or handsome guys lol I’m just depicting an ordinary life unfolding around a wagashi shop in Kyoto, but why is it so fun to create?
The charm of “Kyoto”. So adorable characters and drama drawn by Ms. Asano. The delicious-looking wagashi. I’m sure there are many more reasons. That’s what I’m working on every day. Please look forward to the broadcast.
Series composer Yoshida Reiko
There is so much season, experience, and ingenuity in a piece of small wagashi that can fit in the palm of your hand. I hope you enjoy this story of wagashi and people, which is both sweet and a little bitter like tea. I hope you enjoy it.
Character Designer and Chief Animation Director Shibuya Shu
I feel honored to be involved in Ms. Asano’s work, which I have loved for a long time.
I hope that I can portray the story of Itsuka-chan, Nagomu, Ryokusho, and the people around them in a charming way in the anime. Please take a look at Deaimon!
