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 Mochizou, whose family runs a rival mochi shop. And lately, Midori’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!

Let’s see… when I first saw Tamako Market it reminded me of K-On! Due to the similar art, that’s why I decided to watch it. The anime was delightful, the story is basically about life. It’s pretty funny and enjoyable. It’s true that the plot wasn’t steady and it was all over the place. Yet, they kept going back to the bigger picture. There wasn’t anything special about the anime. If you were looking for some anime to simply enjoy, I totally recommend it.
