The last year of high school is always a time of both looking forward and looking back. Before you lies the future, alternately bright and scary. Behind you lie memories, both happy and sad. And somehow, in the course of one year, you have to reconcile those two and decide where your life is going to go.

For Wakana Sakai, who had started studying music, it's time to face the tragedy that made her abandon that path. For Sawa Okita, it's about her dreams of riding professionally. And for Konatsu Miyamoto, it's about bringing her friends together through the magic of a song. Can something as simple as the formation of a choir club really help solve the hurts and pangs that come with growing up? Can music bring people together despite their differences?

For a long time, people have argued whether originality truly plays a role into the quality of a title. In any media where there is an audience and a profit to be made, it's natural for many writers and artists to take inspiration from a tried and true formula. Though they may take steps to break from the circle of homogeneity and establish their own identity, deriving elements from other successful titles is inevitable.

Being a part of the conventional genre of high school drama, Tari Tari is certainly no stranger to this pattern.

The story takes place during the final year of high school for Wakana read more

The drama based on the school club is about as tried and true of an anime theme as giant robots and beach episodes. In that case, Tari Tari certainly doesn’t break any new ground. It doesn’t particularly do anything amazingly well or put a new spin on the genre or feature memorable characters or scenes that will stand the test of time. But despite it all, it managed to still be a fun, fully enjoyable, and worthy investment of my time.

Tari Tari revolves around a group of five high schooler's who even though they all have very different goals in life do read more

It is said that music soothes the soul. There is always at least one song that can send shivers down our spine and play games with our fragile hearts; it can be interpreted in various ways depending on the individual. The way music plays our heartstrings can be beautiful and majestic, yet also painstakingly depressing. It tickles our souls nonetheless.

The story of Tari Tari is best described as arc based plots. While overall the story is very enjoyable, I also believe it takes a very safe approach with regards to adhering to common tropes rather than striving for the something new and interesting. This read more

At first look, Tari Tari seems to be one of those animes that completely focuses on School life, that applies comedy in certain areas, with a cultural festival to wrap everything up or something.
But I was wrong Tari Tari is one of those animes where it focuses heavily on the drama of each main character, with slight comical scenes and is also a slice of life. For people who compare this to K-ON there stupid, there a completely different genre, K-ON is more comedy oriented while Tari Tari is more drama. Just because they both have music involved there not the same, you wont read more

Anime: Hanasaku Iroha
Both Anime have beautiful Animation, the characters are amazingly diverse and the story is driven by the emotions of the characters and one can feel like they are really there. It is also slice of life that carefully picks what it is going to be about and focuses primarily on that with the little extras on the side

Anime: K-On!
High school clubs about music. In K-On it's the light music club, and in Tari Tari it's choir. Both series also feature quite the quirky cast, although the main character lineup in K-On is significantly derpier and more geared toward "cute girls doing cute things," while the lineup in Tari Tari is more relatable to the viewer and is mixed, i.e. both guys and girls.

Anime: Love Live! School Idol Project
It's about some students that work hard to achieve their goal and also protect their beloved school. 
reportRecommended by RKO48
Anime: Glasslip
Same studio and similar animation, both plots deal with the protagonist and her dream of achieving a certain goal (In Tari Tari the main girl wants to sing while in Glasslip the main girl wants to be a glassmaker). Also there is a transfer male student who joins the group of childhood friends. Both deliver slice-of-life vibes with a touch of romance.

Anime: Natsu-iro Kiseki
Sweet tales about ones dreams coming true. Slice of life that deals with the bonding of friendships and that also have similar art styles and similar feeling to the story. 
reportRecommended by Yemi_Hikari
Anime: Kokoro Connect
Slice of life airing anime. Two boys and three girls who are friends and in both anime have similar personalities. Both feature a highschool setting where the group is trying to achieve something. KC is supernatural though.
