Tamako Market episode 05

It wasn’t a bad episode or anything, but there’s something that I have been waiting to say for about a week or two. I decided to wait until I had seen this week’s episode before saying anything at all, but I guess it’s no use after all, huh?

[Mazui]_Tamako_Market_-_05_[0F447B0A].mkv_snapshot_05.21_[2013.02.07_22.12.51]Basically; what’s up with the story? Dera Mochimazzi was sent to find his master a lover. That’s fine, but what is going on with that? The story has been going downhill ever since the first episode. One would think that it’s a story about a naïve, sweet girl that spends her time making mochi in her father’s mochishop. It’s not, is it?

I mean, come on… We spent about five minutes watching Tamako learn how to swim. It may have been funny and rather cute, but what was the point? It’s slowly becoming a story that revolves around the strange occurrences that take place on that market, and the people in it are just a small bonus.

[Mazui]_Tamako_Market_-_05_[0F447B0A].mkv_snapshot_13.24_[2013.02.07_22.13.11]It’s not all a waste though, as I noticed quite a few things. Poor Midori… You can’t fool me! It’s quite clear that Midori has a crush on Mochizou. Why else would she want him to stay away from Tamako? She knows that Tamako doesn’t care about or even understand love, so Mochizou’s confession would’ve been shot down faster than you can shout “fail”.  No, she decided to open her mouth and talk to him about it, and tell him that he’s starting to look like a stalker. That’s just wrong Midori, especially since Midori knows that he’s Tamako’s childhood friend, and that his father owns a mochishop across the street, too. I hate to say it, but that, at least, will be quite interesting to follow from here on out.

  1. I think you got a bit of this wrong. Since episode 3 we know that Midori has a crash on Tamako so the reason she went out to talk to Mochizou was because he was too close to her, not that she had a crush on Mochizou.

      My god, I sincerely did not notice that. Are you sure though? I’ve just watched that episode again and I fail to see the connection…
