Departures are moments that evoke both hope and melancholy. Tabi Machi Late Show examines how these ambivalent emotions continue to persist long beyond that singular moment of parting. Azuma reminisces about her mentor as she sees off her own student; Kumeno recalls her short, turbulent friendship with Koizumi; Yukari meets an old friend during the Lantern Festival; and Sakurada fondly remembers the numerous students she has met during her teaching career.

Structured around a theme of goodbyes and journeys, Tabi Machi Late Show is composed of four intimate, slice-of-life vignettes that wistfully examine the lasting impressions people leave on one another.

It's pretty great to think about the impact a simple and petty show can leave on you. Tabi Machi Late Show is one show that relies on the most basics of art to convey four short stories based on goodbyes and journeys. Stories of source of inspiration, an encounter missing on a proper goodbye, a sad tale of innocence and friendship and a life-long teacher showing her grateful farewell to the children are represented in a very unsophisticated but delightful manner. Tabi Machi Late Show isn't a show that'll leave you bewildered after its finished, but if you are willing to take a portion of read more

While it consists of 4 short episodes, the theme of “goodbyes and journeys” is conveyed thoroughly. There are different angles in each episode, but every one of them shows how one’s life takes a turn for a new tomorrow, however happy or sad that is.

Are they original? Not really. Are they great? No. Does that mean they are bad? Again, the answer is no. However cliché they may be, they succeed in bringing up the right kind of feeling when watching this. They focus only on certain parts of a situation, letting easily the viewer surmise the surroundings and thus, make the whole scene feel read more

This anime was quite interesting to watch.

However, the initial first two episodes had quite lackluster characters, and all events seemed to take an eternity. With the amount of artwork and voices they had, they could definitely have made the anime into a manga. The music itself is sweet, but ordinary and typical. Additionally, the voice acting brings nothing good to the anime, and just makes the episodes feel like eternity. Dialogue, too is quite predictable save for a few explosive moments. Even so, the pause between lines makes these moments lose their power.

I personally enjoyed, however, the amount by which the individual episodes read more

This was a very intriguing, short anime that I would consider experimental and not something that needs to be over-analyzed. There isn't much to this anime, so it can't be judged in the same way you would judge most others.

While the art and music is simple, the individual stories and overall concept for this anime make up for anything someone might perceive as flaws. Each episode does a good job of showcasing a situation where one has to say goodbye, while gently tugging at your heartstrings. The slow pace creates a soothing atmosphere that's best viewed when you want to relax and unwind.

I don't think read more
