Tamako Market Episode 1- MOEBLOBLUU

Moeblobs. Tamako Market is rife with them. However, considering that I liked K-ON!, I'm not expecting the series to be bad. In fact, after watching the premise to the series that is episode one, I'm convinced it will not be totally stereotypical MOEBLOBLUU despite being designed by the queen of moeblob designs herself, Yukiko Horiguchi (still, I love her art tho ♥)

About le Tamako in a Market (random points)

#1. First of all, there is a bird in the show, idk what the hell type of bird he's supposed to be (a chicken? I initially thought he was a chicken, though I think now he is in fact a parrot...) he somehow got shipped to Japan from a fucking tropical island faraway in search for a suitable bride for his prince. He stares over changing rooms (and gets nosebleeds), talks, and is just generally kind of comical. The characters in the show call him 'Tori' (I'm pretty sure it means 'bird' in Japanese; although the name Tori makes me think of my best friend in elementary school every time ;_;) though his real name is Dera Mochimazzi (mochimazi = bad/yucky/gross mochi). Since his real name obviously offends the SRS mochi making tamako/ooji family, everybody, again, just calls him tori.

#2. In this show, there is a male involve! Ooji Mochizou is the adorable (future! boy)friend of Tamako, who seems to harbor a crush on her. He's basically a cute male character (since when are male anime characters ever ugly though *crickets chirp*) and a love interest. The only think standing in the way of him and the cute Tamako's future romance is their fathers, who both run mochi shops, and therefore, have a rivalry (comedic anime version of Romeo and Juliet situation, anyone?)

#3. There are cute girls, and they will probably will be doing cute things (hopefully with the fabulous tori involved!). Blondie Midori, Brunette Kanna, Meganekko Shiori, and the token imouto, Anko (although she prefers to be called 'An') and our main moeblob character. There are a few characters I don't really feel like mentioning with the exception of the blonde flower shop owner, who is of an indeterminate gender (honestly, it could be a very girly guy or a woman with a deep voice? The character looks like a woman lol) voiced by Daisuke Ono (also known as.... Sebastian [Kuroshitsuji], Itsuki (Haruhi Suzumiya), Yukito [Air], Shizuo [DRRR!!], Himself [Lucky Star], etc.)

This could be a very promising series.... I like the sassy bird (talking animals ftw) and I want to see if there will be some romance between Tamako and Ooji. The animation quality was great and cute as ever; and I always love the detailed backgrounds (scenery porn and pretty damn good animation? Always expected from Kyoani.)

This has been my short rambling and thoughts on TamaMarket. There'll be pictures after this jump

~fake jump~ posting this on iPhone Tom lazy to go back and correct it on the computer
