Tamako Market (たまこまーけっと Tamako Māketto) is a Japanese anime television series produced by Kyoto Animation and directed by Naoko Yamada. It first aired in Japan on January 10th, 2013.

PlotEdit

In a colorful shopping district located in Kyoto, Tamako Kitashirakawa is the bubbly daughter of a mochi shop owner. She soon encounters a strange, talking, pink bird who calls himself Dera Mochimazzi. From then on, Dera makes a whimsical impact on the residents of Usagiyama Shopping District as well as Tamako's friends from school.

ProductionEdit

The art director is Ikuko Tamine and the character designer is Yukiko Horiguchi. The sound director is Yota Tsuruoka and the music composition is by Tomoko Kataoka. The voice actress for the protagonist provided the vocals for the opening theme song, "Dramatic Market Ride" and the ending theme song, "Neguse".[1]

Conception Edit

The overall frame for the story had already began before Naoko Yamada was given the role as director of the new animation. The initial setting remained a shopping district, although some elements to the show were removed. Despite fantasy attributes—such as the protagonist having special powers—no longer being the core of Tamako Market the general slice-of-life genre remained. With the changes continuing to prosper solid characterizations, only the talking bird remained.[2]
