Cultural incognizance at its finest LOL. That Yogul is completely breaking down Hotarun's worldview here.

*said like a shop attendant*

"Sir, this is a dagashi shop, we only sell sweet (something like side dish and we eat just for fun), if you want a main dish (to satisfy your hungry) please go to a H-restaurant with the same name as our shop".

*Said like Hotaru*

"WEAK. Do you think you can truly be my rival with such conservative beliefs!? Open the doors of your mind to new possibilities! OTTIMO"

"morocco is kind of close to bulgaria"

 

oh dear…

Well it's closer to Bulgaria that Japan is...

.. So, this is basically 'Food Porn: The Manga'. It's probably set in the same world as 'Food Porn: The Animation' (Koufuku Graffiti)~ :D

Someone should remind this guy that "looking after" girls when they're drunk can entail more than what he's thinking. The path to adulthood he was looking for was laid out before him, he just missed the sign :\

Okay so is this manga just tagged Comedy?

DEEP!

The world of snack in very deep indeed

Well what good do anime and manga do us? Games? I always look at it like this: Everyone has their drug. 'Drug' in this sense simply being a metaphor for a guilty pleasure. Not everyones' will be bad for their health, but everyone has that one thing that really does nothing productive for them, but they do it anyway. 

Depending on your definition of "not productive", those "drugs" can actually be of use to you, making them productive.

Wait, Wtf? There are no elephants in Morocco?! XD

I honestly don't know why drinking is any good anyway. The more alcohol a drink has, the more it reeks and tastes like desinfectant, and it's not good for your health anyway (since alcohol is a cell-poison...). Even the intoxicating effect doesn't do you any good, since you can't trsut your senses anymore (especially the loss of balance is a problem; especially dangerous if you're away from home and drunken at night), and it causes you to regurgigate.

 

It's somehow sad how nowadays people have become tolerant to everything (blasphemy, sodomy, injustice,etc.) except people who reject taking drugs (i.e. alcohol and tobacco).

Even in Japan, "social meetings" are reduced to nothing more than becoming drunk together

(well, the cultural aspects of this meetings are gone[telling tales, teaching culture, playing music and dancing, sharing ideas and food,etc.], all that's left is the drinking, which became "national sport no.1" even before soccer).

It all comes down to marketing, brewers and distillers have successfully taken the widespread culture of limited alcohol consumption and it's association with feasts and holidays and determinedly fostered the mythology around it further

Oh yeah...I've been there...looking after drunkards can be the worse

Especially this:

Since there are different dagashi/candies made by different manufacturers, and the author thanks them (there's a list of fourteen companies thanked at the end of volume 1), I think the mangaka just genuinely likes dagashi and wants to write a manga about them.

Of course, there's always the possibility they did it for money, but I can't exactly imagine fourteen companies agreeing on this... Also, some of the dagashi shown in the manga really don't need to be advertized (e.g., there are two million Umai Bou sold per day in Japan).

Moreover, even if it was advertisement, I wouldn't really mind, as long as it's entertaining.

 

That's not how it works. They don't need to sign a unified contract.

 

1) It's a unique idea that got passed by the editor/publishing company

2) You can work with publishing & candy companies and temporary sponsorship of the relevant chapter to create a deal (in this case, it would probably be only around 100-1000 USD minus publisher-related fees if it did happen, in US market contexts).

 

2 is not likely to happen NOT because "the brand is so big" (which doesn't make sense, any company always wants more word-of-mouth), but because the relevant amounts of advertising is very small (one chapter, small mentions, small series, small number of eyeballs on it).

You can't tell me to slow down when there's an h doujin of this shit out already. No brakes on my imagination when it comes to this series.

You forgot to add the cover for the h-doujin. Don't worry, I got ya covered:

what flavor umaibo did you eat?!?

this is a comedy manga so slooowww down.

Besides, comedy series make for some amazing doujins. I'm looking forward to seeing what artists will think up of for this series lol.

I've got to say, Hotaru is top tier heroine material

Man, for the life of me, Hotaru's personality and design reminded  me of SOMEONE, but I couldn't figure it out for the life of me til now:

Hi Score Girl also has a list of all the companies at the end of each volume. But SNK was a dick and sued it, and that was after the anime was announced.

The other companies gave them authorization or didn't really mind.

 

 

We have to thank that SNK doesn't make candies, because it would be the end of this manga.

"Not if they enjoyed it" All he'd need to do is make her feel good enough that she wouldn't press charges. :VVVV

Wait is this one of those publications that is really an advertisement (for candy)?
