Wonderful sweetness!
9 December 2017 | by drenbill-06192See all my reviews

This is a light and sweet dose of sugary Japanese goodness. To enter it is to open the gates of The Paradise of Sweets. Enjoy but in small perfectly measured doses. Our children like it very much. Long live the Sweets Night! Of note, while the plot does take some time to develop, it quickly engulfs you in its sugary complexities (with hints of delicate darkness). Savor appropriately. Thank you. Also, our dogs Sam, Freckles and Pippy seem to like it as well...strong cross-species appeal!
