[FIRST IMPRESSION] Oji-san and Marshmallow おじさんとマシュマロ


Hige-san has a problem. A really big marshmallow problem. Wakabayashi also has a problem. A really big Hige problem. She tries desperately to win him over, but he remains oblivious to her advances. Realising that Hige pays more attention to marshmallows than women, she starts to use his favourite snacks against him in order to make him fall for her.


It’s an unconventional office romance to say the least, subverting the idea of the handsome ikemen pursuing the young, naïve secretary. Instead, the girl is chasing the guy, and he’s not exactly your typical anime hero. The comedic timing works well with the dialogue, especially in the supermarket scene, which was a main factor in continuing the series. There is some fanservice and innuendo, but none that seems out of place with the flirtatious nature of the show. The whole plot revolves around Wakabayashi trying to seduce Hige, so it would be unrealistic if there wasn’t any sex appeal.

Similar to:

Ore Monogatari – Leading men who aren’t conventionally attractive, but still catch the eye of the heroine.

Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun – Girls chasing their oblivious love interests, and using their interests to get closer to them.
