Hotaru Shidare Character Ask 1

I drew Hotaru and Saya together a while back, but I thought revisiting them would be worthwhile. Saya didn’t even get naked in that pic, so here’s a fun second run with them. I thought it’d be funny of Hotaru hadn’t even originally considered talking about sex in her response, since she’s so obsessed with dagashi, but Saya helped guide her to a more typical Ask response.

The Taste of Love

Dagashi Kashi is a is a fun little comedy show about Japanese snacks and cheap toys (dagashi). It has four main characters (at least in the first series). Hotaru is an eccentric girl who reminds me a lot of Mei Hatsume from MHA if she was into snacks instead of tech, and Saya is a local girl who runs a coffee shop with a crush on the main guy. Despite both being positioned as potential love interests for the main boy, they actually have a really cute and supportive friendship that I like a lot. Hotaru, in my opinion, has better chemistry with Saya than she does either of the male characters, and this pic is a twist on one of the most explicitly yuri-teasing scenes from the anime.
