Anime: Tari Tari – Episode 1 Summary + Review

“Musical Anime Girls?! What, again?”

(Turn and POSE)

Studio: P.A.Works

Genre: School, Music, Slice of Life, Age: All ages

Released: July 1 2012 – onwards

Tari Tari continues another comforting story of girls in High School learning music, and then opening up a choir club. I found that although the storyline was typical, I actually enjoyed this episode.

(Konna dreaming about singing)

Konatsu Miyamoto is a positive girl that loves music and singing. She’s even part of the Vocal Music Club, however currently spends her days turning the page to the piano player. This was due to a singing fiasco that happened last year at a recital.

(Everyone has at least one mean teacher)

Her teacher tells her that she won’t let Konatsu sing, no matter how much she asks, so Konatsu quits and decides to make her own choir club. But she needs five members..

(Wien separating his noodles and soup)

Wien, a new transfer student from Australia, is struggling to fit in Japan after coming over. Taichi Tanaka, a member of the badminton club, helps him out by showing him around.

(Aaah, don’t you just wish you could shoot an arrow at your enemies)

Konatsu lets off some steam with Sawa Okita, her friend who is part of the archery club. Despite Konatsu’s pleading Sawa refuses to join her choir.

(Beautiful sea in the background)

Konatsu turns to the best singer show knows, Wakana Sakai. She’s great at singing but has given it up for some reason and doesn’t want to talk about it.

(La la la~#)

The episode ends with Konatsu waiting for Sawa at a busy public place, and unconsciously starts to sing. She gathers quite a crowd and coincidentally the group of characters are down to her voice and meet.

Overall, I normally don’t like anything to do with anime high-school girls, but this was surprisingly good.

Rated 3.5/5 Good start to a series. Good animation and artwork.

See the next episode!
