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 ...

Mixed Feelings
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 ...

This... Wasn't a very good anime.
Consisting of only 4 episodes, with each of those being just shy of 8 minutes each, Tabi Machi was a show that was intended to evoke feelings which arise from going through the different stages in life, saying goodbye to people you know and meeting new ones to replace them.

There wasn't a story to speak of; each episode was an individual one which had different characters in different settings. The only similarity was the theme they all shared, of 'endings and goodbyes' as the synopsis puts it.
The problem was that none of the episodes were long enough to make the ...
