Anime: Tari Tari – Episode 7 Summary + Review

“White Rhino Festival”

(Wien’s vivid imagination. Good things the girls can’t see this.)

Studio: P.A.Works

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

Released: July 1 2012 – onwards

From the previous episode, the group are preparing for their biggest stage yet: the White Festival.

Wien’s a bit confused about the meaning, and the girls spin a story about a white rhino that lives under the school, that gets released once a year as a celebration. He totally buys it!

Warning! May contain spoilers!




The girls from the Music class choir group stop by to pick a song.

Konatsu’s choir group doesn’t want to compete with the large choir directly, but the rivalry fires everyone up. Wakana promises to help out with the choir more, and to help them win.

(Sabotaging songs while pretending to be invisible ninjas doesn’t make it true…)

After club activity, the group split up to go their separate ways.

(Taichi shows off his moonwalk)

Sawa has an argument with her parents over her career plans. they don’t see any value in becoming a professional horse rider, and Sawa huffs out.

(Sawa hits family members. Teenagers these days!)

Sawa simply stops eating for some reason. Her eating habits get the attention of her friends and family.

(“Staring at the sauce bottle doesn’t make it come closer!”)

During choir practice, everyone is delivering notes, when Sawa collapses from exhaustion and malnutrition.

(Sawa confesses about telepathic powers she got, after fighting with her parents)

Wakana invites both Sawa and Konatsu to watch a play with her. Although Sawa doesn’t have a good time, and at the end she makes her way to horse-riding practice.

(You don’t need a reason to enjoy a Condor Queens concert)

Wakana is studying composition to try and finish the half-song that her mum wrote.

(Wakana teaches Konatsu how to be a manga cow)

At the horse-riding practice, Sawa falls off her horse and is injured.

(Sawa’s run over by a horse… this might affect her love of horses)

The episode ends on a cliffhanger.

Overall, this series just continues to have plenty of twists and turns. Character development is pretty good, and each character has something worthwhile to say.

I wasn’t sure why Sawa started dieting. Maybe I missed some vital clue? In any case, it’s heart-wrenching to see her abuse her own body.

Wien seems the least well-rounded, but he also gets the least screen-time. At least he’s funny to watch, even though his gullibility might be pushing his character.

Rated 4/5  Well rounded episode, with plenty of interesting parts.

See the next episode!
