Based on its cover, this show is about sweets, a mochi shop and a plump white talking bird.
After the first episode, I thought that Tamako Market started off rather decently. From a glance, this show is basically about a girl named Tamako who finds a strange talking bird. Believe it or not, the bird is hilarious and eventually becomes plump after eating a lot of mochi (餅,Japanese Rice Cake). As for Tamako, she is cute and has a pretty likable personality. Lastly, other characters are just there because they didn’t get much screen time in this episode besides the boy from a rival mochi shop. Still, I felt bad for her as everyone forgot about her birthday.
As for the animation, Kyoto Animation basically smashed the art designs of K-ON and Nichijou and smashed them together. Aside from that, I’m curious on how the show will go from here since it’s mostly a slice of life show. Sure, there is a bit of development with the bird wanting to finish his journey, but that is pretty much it so far. Even so, I still feel anxious since Kyoto Animation has a bad history it comes to completely original stories. Hopefully with 3 more episodes, we find out for sure. For now, I will just enjoy the ride.
