Starting this July in Animate and Gamers stores across the country, fans of the show can buy a package of Homura Manju box featuring the image of character Honoka Kousaka. That's appropriate, as in the cartoon, her family runs a Japanese sweets store called Homura selling a variety of traditional goods – including manju, a classic confection featuring red-bean paste in the middle. A box of six will cost one about 907 yen, but the chance to eat a snack from the show might be more than worth that price to fans.
