While the relentless school administrator wants to shut down the unauthorized festival, he is in for a nasty surprise.
From last time, it seems like the administrators are trying to foil Konatsu’s plan to perform their musical. Although the Principal stepped in, he still looked rather pathetic for letting the proposal to close the school to go though compared to the vice principal. Still, I’m surprised how Naoko managed to hand out the music and work with the club to give a great performance for the musical. That isn’t all! They even had an orchestra playing as well.
With the epilogue, I’m happy that everything turned out fine for the club members after graduation. Sawa goes overseas to achieve her dream as a jockey, Tanaka playing Badminton professionally with a recommendation and Wein reuniting with his friend. Still, the most surprising is Wakana as she lets Naoko teach her more about music and plans to attend music school to carry on her mother’s legacy. It makes me wonder how her music will turn out after a few years. We might find out if the producers ever decide to make a movie or not.
After having a bad after taste in my mouth with Hanasaku Iroha last year, I’m glad that Tari Tari did not ran into the same pitfalls of unnecessary crossdressing and poorly done love triangle drama. This show has certainly regained some confidence for PA Works to create an enjoyable show close to what they achieved with True Tears. While there were subtle hints of romance between Sawa and Tanaka, it’s a mostly lighthearted show with a hint of realism. I enjoyed it a lot, especially the music. Hopefully, I wish the studio well as long they don’t bring back Mari Okada and her fetishes.
