Synopsis

Tamako knows just about everything there is to know about mochi, the traditional Japanese dessert treats. When she's not attending her first year of high school, she even invents new flavors and varieties for Tama-ya, her family's mochi shop. School and growing up, on the other hand, are some things that she's still trying to find the right recipe for. But with the help of her best friends Kanna and Midori, two girls whose parents run businesses in the same shopping district, Tamako's determined to make the best of things. It's complicated though, especially when it comes to emotions and her relationship with her best boy friend Mochizou, whose family runs a rival mochi shop. And lately, Midori's been feeling a little odd about her feelings towards Tamako as well. And what's up with that strange bird fluttering around, the one that speaks fluent Japanese? It's all very mysterious and overwhelming, but at least Tamako always has one thing she can count on: No matter if your day's been good or bad, there's certain to be something sugary and delicious waiting at the end of every adventure whenever you take a walk through Tamako Market!

There's something about anime which allows us to derive entertainment from the mundane events of an ordinary person. Coincidentally, ordinary is the best way to describe Tamako Market.

Starring the young lady Tamako and a flamboyant talking bird, Tamako Market is yet another anime that attempts to cash in on the slice of life phenomenon. It is not an anime that prospers through the strength of its plot, setting, or themes, but instead subsists through the cuteness of its characters. Should we criticize an anime for not going beyond that? Maybe not. But there is certainly a problem when such a simple anime still falls read more

''Everybody loves somebody'' but only people who enjoys 'moe animes' can love this show.

Story: 8/10 - Tamako's family runs a mochi shop in the town's shopping district. One day, she encounters a talking bird named Dera who is searching for a bride for his island's prince. Later on, Dera became overweight from eating too much mochi and isn't able to travel anymore, so he decides to freeload at Tamako's house for the time being. The show is quite simple yet really cute and heartwarming. it also has a lot of cute humor here and there. It really cracks me up every time someone throws Dera.

Recommendations

Tamako Market, K-On!, and Yearly Traffic Accident Report share one similarity. They tell story of something happening somewhere, whether it's a club room, a shopping district, or interstate highway.

You watch Tamako Market, you know what the district committee comes up with. You watch K-On!, you know five girls in music club spent 12 out of 13 episodes NOT playing music. You watch Yearly Traffic Accident Report, you know how many dumb rich kids run their Ferrari off the cliff each year. It's pretty much the same thing, a concentrated Slice of Life.
The main girl in Tamako Market is basically a blue-eyed Chitanda Eru. Their personalities are also very similar. Plot-wise these two animes don't have much in common, but none the less they're both quite fun!
