I just finished Tamako Love Story. Now what?
You can never go wrong with this.
Whenever I get a bad streak of mediocre to bad anime, an episode or two of K-On! always perks me up.
Yeah honestly, they wasted a lot of time on Tamako's OMG inner-conflictions.
It was boring and the drama was really forced for most of the movie, the ending was the payoff though.
You listen to this again and again.
>despair because your will never have tamako or someone like her in your life.
>despair because you will never have a fulfilling and loving relationship with another human being.
>despair because no other anime will come close to filling the growing hole in your heart.
The two most soft and fluffy beings ever conceived.
Just imagine how perfect their life together will be.
Wait for Kanna and Midori Love Story
Now wait here with us, for Shiori to win Da Mako Market.
>Build up all that "everybody can love anybody" stuff during the show
>Then have Midori accept that her feelings will never be returned while at the same time the object of her affections goes to be with someone else.
Why did Midori have to get BTFO like that
Why did the show build up the prince plot until he shows up at the end only to be like, "hey, I just met you and this is crazy, but wanna get married? No? OK then, peace out." Did the prince exist only to get turned down and nothing else?
watch Tamako Market again
I love how cute everyone dresses in Tamako Market
That feel when you will never visit the hippie music store guy and receive vague life advice while sipping on shitty coffee
They're color swapped versions of Hidamari Sketch's, which are the greatest on TV. But the all-time greatest are the very similar model on the keions in the movie credits.
If you want to be ahead of the curve you should reevaluate Tamako Market. All these manga and LN adaptations may seem cool now but in hindsight a few years on it's all gonna be a blur of generic sameness. It all won't seem as good in retrospect once you've been following anime long enough. It's never gonna be one of those shows that you forget you saw until you glimpse it on your MAL page.
Tamako Market was original with just enough uniqueness to be worth remembering. It will be more interesting in the future after Yamada has done more things to establish her career, too, as part of her early oeuvre. And also the last anime designs Horiguchi did.
Dude or lady?
I wonder if Horiguchi would've made something different for her next project if Yamada didn't want K-on designs for Tamako Market. Lucky Star was pretty different, and some of her illustrations have a nice different style to them. If KyoAni ever does high fantasy, they should try to get Horiguchi back and do things like this.
Tamako Love Story: Another Story
Trying to chat with Manko late at night in secret
I was amazed by how much I enjoyed Tamako Market when I went back and rewatched it. I even prefer it over Tamako Love Story now.
Looks like it completely disappears.
I've heard illustrating is easier and pays better than anime so she might have moved on for good. She did have to do the K-ON style again because it was a whole "reuniting the team" deal. The kids all look like keions but the market inhabitants are amazingly not samefaced at all so you can see she's competent at more than just the signature style.
The show's theme is that "everybody loves somebody", it's only Midori's episode that says everybody can love anybody. If you notice there are quite a few tragic loves in the show. Midori, the Afro guy's love for the onsen girl, Tamako's Dad are a few examples.
