    【Story Introduction】

    The anime Beanie’s Daily features the main character Beanie, an adzuki bean, and characters such as tapioca, aloe, and others.

    Beanie’s dream is to be eaten by humans and taste delicious. However, it is difficult for him to make his wish come true.

    But even so, Beanie is always thinking positively. “Tomorrow, I will make a human eat me and taste delicious!”

    And so, every day, Beanie goes to work in a variety of desserts.

    Beanie and the characters live in a world of desserts, a world of different perspectives from we humans.

    To humans, shaved ice with adzuki beans is just dessert, but to the eyes of Beanie, it is a world of fields of silvery-white, a perfect playground where sweet characters play, build snowmen, and ski.

    When humans drink tapioca drinks, the act of stirring can be a catastrophe that separates good friends from each other.

    Beanie meets various sweet friends at work and in various playful activities. We hope you will enjoy watching the daily life of these delightful and fun sweet characters.
