Well this was better than expected. Also nice to get another music anime after Sakamichi no Apolon ended. That transfer student was hilarious too lol. Looking forward to next episode.

This is basically True Tears meets Hanasaku Iroha.

I really enjoyed the first episode. Characters were all likable and the pacing got me excited for the next episode. Kinda hard to judge it right now, but this could be one of my top picks for the summer season. Depends where things go from here.

Average at best, enjoying Jinrui far more.

The art is good, but I'll probably end up dropping it like Apollon.

Pretty much what I expect from P.A Works seeing as how they are my favourite animation studio.

Animation was awesome, the character designs are good and the interactions between them are interesting. I can see why I have this as the anime I was most looking forward to this season =)

I pictured Konatsu to have a do you say it, higher and girly voice? I saw the OP and was like, that person is definitely going to be someone like Mugi. TOTALLY WRONG!

Woah, same here.
I thought she was just going to be a total airhead with an annoying high-pitched voice at first, and in the end, I liked her personality !

So, it was a nice surprise... I'll be watching the rest of this anime, especially for its gorgeous animation and character interactions~ :D

Promising take off, I like the formal ways the transfer student was giving to others
The setting looks very nice and luckily the characters are different from Iroha as well
If only "Natsuiro Kiseki" was animated like this...
I only didn't like all 5 of them walking in the OP scene, somehow those scenes look so annoying to me. It's on other shows as well

Tari Tari is up to a great start, that's for sure. With likeable characters, good flow, VAs you don't recognize... it has the potential to become super.

However, while P.A. Works are great with visuals, their stories haven't exactly lived up to it. Hope this will be their first superb one.
I have my own anime blog. It's called Anime Viking. Hope you'll you read it!

Great Start As a whole. An Unexpected Title this summer. I never expected it to be that good in terms of everything. Loved it. Will be Rooting for this for the whole season. A Great Start for summer. Hoping that it'll turn out better than it's pilot ep as it progresses.

P.S The OP's very lovely. The Tune and the voice of the singer were blended gracefully.

Sawa = perfection. I'm fine with perfection being voiced by Hayami Saori. The episode was good, loving the audiovisual side, especially that True Tears OP being sung by the choir club. Except for that bitchy teacher, all characters seem at least likeable.
In the end it's probably the anime i was looking forward to the most this season. I had hope for 24 episodes though, seeing it's 13 makes me a bit dissapointer. Good start neverthless.
Also Sawa. <3

I really liked this! The art style reminded me a lot of Hanasaku Iroha which aired a few seasons ago. I assume it's by the same studio. I hope it's as good as that show.

I really love music animes. And this is close to my heart because I'm also in a chorus club. Because of this though, I'll probably be constantly comparing this to real life and that might make my experience kind of annoying haha. I think it'll be a great anime though, so I'm looking forward to watching more!

I have no idea how this is gonna end up, but right now it's at an 8/10 for me :D

Tari Tari should become an another 'Natsuiro Kiseki' since we had Takagaki Ayahi, again (the last time that I recognized her voice was Feldt Grace from Gundam 00, Kuro from Blue Exorcist & Desil Gallete from Gundam AGE)!

This was pretty nice and it looked like it will become even nicer.
The characters looked pretty interesting and are a pretty nice group together and they also seemed like they had there circumstances.
It also reminds me allot of Hanasaku Iroha not just in art but it has the same feeling to it.

There is a mistake in the Synopsis.
The guy that just transferred mentioned he was living in Austria he even mentioned living in the capital of Austria Vienna.
While the synopsis mentions he was living in Australia.

WOW. That's a lot better than I anticipated. Will continue.

Wakana looks very diligent but a little bitching. I guess she'll develop.
Sawa is a very nice girl all around. Good personality. Good style. Assumably good student too. Just perfect.
Konatsu is a typical aggressive cheerful girl, good girl but not really my type.
Taichi didn't do much.
Vienna guy is simply EPIC.

I was a little shocked when I heard "Reflectia". Remind me of one of the biggest shippers massacre.

Way to go. Start with 5/5 - 7/10.

If you search for this anime, it is on page 8 of the results list and one can't skip the other pages... Mendoukusai! -.-

Wow, this really is a coastline I always recognize within a split second. Perhaps mostly because they always show the view from Kamakura to Enoshima in any anime set in that region.

That reminds me I still have to watch the second episode of Tsuritama and decide whether it is worth my time...

I was really surprised that I like this so much. The details on everything are to die for, I hope the quality doesn't drop. The characters are adorable so far, as of now Wien is my favorite.

Also, did the first few seconds imply that Sakai had some traumatic event (like her mothers death probably) make her quit singing? It probably did.

Also, Reflectia was unexpected, I finished watching true tears a week ago.

That was great. I really like the characters so far and, this being P.A. Works, the art is beautiful. It's pretty much Hanasaku Iroha set in a different place with different characters and with some music thrown in.

Wait, wait. The song the choir was singing is the song from the True Tears OP! Some already mentioned it , but still. ^w^

Anyway, that revelation aside. This was pretty nice. I'm linking the Hanasaku Iroha art style and that characters are pretty likeable so far. Speaking of Hanairo; Konatsu is adorable and really reminds me of Ohana in a way. With that Sakai is definitely like Minko. I couldn't stop laughing at Wien doing all the wrong gestures. I think his custom books are a little out of date.

Looking forward to more. Expect some drama!

This looks very promising. I'm hoping it is. I already want to know what is up with Wakana and Wien seems like a very interesting character. These two are the ones I'm most looking forward to.
I am a sucker for romance!!!!

Well... it looks OK. I could see this turning into poop, but I could also see this pulling an unexpected turn for the better. Right now, it's neutral. I have no hopes or expectations for this anime at this point in time except I wouldn't mind an onsen scene.

Actually though it's like I'm watching Hanasaku Iroha all over again... except with a totally different plot. The feel and animation is very similar, but even the characters. Besides appearances, I can totally see Minko's personality in Sakai, and a bit of Ohana in Miyamoto.
But it doesn't bother me at all.

It seems like a promising series right now, so hopefully the following episodes are good too. Singing wasn't what I was expecting; in the synopsis it said ensamble, so I was expecting instruments (but not a band like in K-ON). Anyway I'll just have to see.
