I apologize, the internet at my house isn’t the greatest. But let’s it not drag us down! The show must go on.

This’ll be a double feature, which means y’all get to see what episodes I found enjoyable and unenjoyable. Justifications behind them all, of course. It’s not fair to say, I dislike this and then have my nose up in the air. Same thing with liking something.

Episode 5//We spent the night together

This was an episode that kind of frustrated me. It’s like a competition of two people to get the attention of the person they really like. Midori and Kanna end up having to teach Tamako to swim before they go onto a class trip. Well, during their day shenanigans we see that Dera learns about the little crush that Mochizo has on Tamako and gets determination to get him and Tamako together. Well, Midori someway through their class trip catches scent of what Mochizo was going to do, a confession.

Come on, they would look cute! Curses for two childhood friends.

Of course, throughout the rest of the day Midori attempts to get in the way of Mochizo and Dera. But seeing his perseverance of perusing Tamako, Midori calms down and lets what is happening happen.

Hmmm, who will win the compition for the attention of Tamako.

Answer: WE’LL NEVER KNOW!

I feel like the fact that it’s two childhood friends fighting for Tamako’s attention, it made it hard to cheer for someone to win in the end. And even in the end, he never really confessed to Tamako. So, more or less in the end it was a major what in the world why did I watch this deal. I felt like it was more like an emotional overboard as you watched the major character waltz around enjoying her time as two other characters fight to show their true feelings.

 

Episode 4//A Small Love Blooms

Here we get a look into Tamako’s younger sisters life. She has been invited to the museum by a crush. But she has to stay behind and help dress younger girls for the parade that was about to happen. The question is; would she make it in time to go with her crush and friends? No

D’awww, she did the same thing when she was younger.

Now as for why I enjoyed this episode is because we got to see daily life from a different point of view but we also got to see a type of development of a secondary character. We got to see someone other than the main cast get upset and even excited over a crush. Plus, despite the fact she didn’t win in the end, we got to see Anko enjoy her time within the Market she lives in.

Come on, who wouldn’t like a face like that?

Ok, take a deep breath, smile, and say ‘It’s Tuesday and I survived Monday.’

Now, that we feel better, let’s talk anime.

Tamako Market, an over stuffed Mochi of adorableness that could potentially give someone diabetes. How? You’ll have to watch and see.

The main character, Tamako Kitashirakawa, gets caught up with an interesting, talking bird, who is looking for a bride for his prince from a far off island. Of course, Tamako lives within a shopping district where this bird, better known as Dera Mochimazzwi [His name causes quite an uproar within her home], ends up freeloading and shows the daily life Tamako, her family, and her friends.

When you first start watching this 12 episode show, you just can’t help but put you finger on something. Like you’ve seen this art style before. This shows that those that also drew for K-On also did for Tamako Market. So, if you’re looking for another slice of life and a show to numbly watch, I would suggest putting this one on the list!
