Habahiro Hige is a simple-minded older man who works an office job and is an enthusiast of Tabekko Marshmallows. His days often consist of being teased by his 24-year-old colleague Iori Wakabayashi, who uses his obsession to her advantage: from eating them in front of his face, to buying out his favorite brand from the convenience store, and even embarrassing him in front of their boss. Although her friends cannot fathom what she sees in him, she just cannot get over his marshmallow-like, fluffy frame. No matter the lengths it takes, Iori will find a way to get his attention. Little does Habahiro know that she is trying to seduce him into a romantic relationship with her. The way to a man's heart is through his stomach, right? At least this is what Iori would honestly like to believe. With a bag in hand, Iori continues to make him chase after her day after day, hoping that he will finally see through her attempts. Will he ever realize that their relationship can become s'more?

The only way to seduce any man is by teasing him with your marshmallows :) Pretty good.


Chain of misunderstandings may come across as entertaining but they ultimately redact even the slightest amount of progress in the romance.


Pretty fun short show. Made me crave marshmallows and for the romance to actually progress.


Why is this a thing?


A fun little timewaster. Episodes are short so it’s a nice anime to pick up and watch whenever.


I want Wakabayashi’s marshmallows. It’s 30 minutes worth of cute fun, give it a whirl.


Another cute short anime series. I can relate to the main character really well XD



    "We, who hurt each other so terribly, will sit here licking each other's wounds. We damaged goods will each seek the other out in comfort. If you are to die tomorrow, I'm fine with my life ending then as well. But if you want to live for me for one more day,I'll go on living with you today as well. And thus begins a tale of kindred, bound by their scars. Soaked in red and written in black, a story of blood. One of which I'll never speak. Our very own, precious as it is, story of scars. And I have no intention of reciting it to anyone."
