Tamako Market

Boy, I started watching this episode with very little expectations. Imagine my surprise when the first episode blew me off my feet. It was hilarious! What’s up with that gay-looking bird? Did you see the way he walked? That got me every time. Love it!

Tamako MarketThe artwork is really good. I like the characters and I especially like that gay-looking bird. They did a great job with that character. I didn’t get to see much too mail details, as I had tears in my eyes from all the laughing, but I’m pretty impressed so far.

The story kills too, although I’m getting worried after I had seen the final ten seconds of the episode. I don’t think I’d want to watch a robot bird find a suitable partner for his “prince”. Don’t think it’s a robot though, seeing as he got fatter and fatter with every piece of mochi (Japenese rice cake) he ate. I don’t think robots get fat?

I’m looking forward to seeing the rest! I recommend this to almost everyone. The kind of person that prefers a lot of action and horror probably would’ve like this, but those that like to laugh a lot will probably love this.

Plot Summary: 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 Mochizo, whose family runs a rival mochi shop. And lately, Kanna’s been feeling a little odd about her feelings towards Tamako as well. And what’s with 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!
