Just saw the first episode the other day. It was a good episode, but there was nothing that haven't seen already. If fact, the main character go to a public bathhouse within 10 minutes even though they have a bath at home. I'm starting to wonder if the Japanese actually use bathhouses all the time. Also, TheAnimeNetwork is a horrible place for people who want screencaps.

Huzzah, I got the spoiler blocks working!

I tried one episode of Tamako Market. I thought I wouldn't like it because I'm not really into cute anime shows. The thing that got me hooked was the crazy bird, Dera Mochimazzi, and the young lad who doesn't acknowledged the fact he got a crush on the girl, Tamako.

Well, we got a tsundere and a character who I think is a girl.

Kaoru Hanase - a woman or a man?
Kaoru Hanase - a woman or a man?
Ah, I spot a tsundere!
Ah, I spot a tsundere!

The art style in this anime is pretty cute, and it's Inuyasha when you see how the girls' face all look alike. That's just me. Oh, I loved Dera and how strange he is. He gets smitten by some of these girls and his strange habit where a girl sneezes on him, he thinks she's hitting on him. Plus, he is a bit of a pervert.

Remember that stress ball that Tamako used recently? I don't because I haven't seen the episode. However, if you thought that stress ball looked really cool, you can own it with a purchase of the Volume 1 DVD or Blu-ray. The Blu-ray costs $76 and the DVD costs $67.

@Acura_Max:

What, I thought that was an eraser she was holding.

Have you and started watching a lot of Tamako Market? Wait, why did I called BigHeart711? Ignore me, I'm crazy right now.

Uh, this series is pretty good so far. Though, I wonder where the plot is from time to time. I never like slice of life series, but the bird, a tsundere boy, and a yuri girl with a protective mother instinct kept me watching this show.

@takashichea: I have actually stopped watching this series and Sasami due to the fact that I need to a subscription watch anything after episode one. The only reason why I was able to find this was because Crunchyroll highlighted it in one of its articles.

Anyway, I was busy watching Homeland and I am loving it. If you have Netflix, it's worth a watch. Here is the episode summary to the pilot if you ever want to check it out: link.

@Acura_Max:

Do you still need a Crunchyroll Guest pass for the other series? Hold on, I'll send one.

Tamako Market introduces new two girls: Shiori Asagiri and Choi Mochimazzi. Shiori is a quiet, shy girl with glasses. For those who like shy girls, she's your type. Choi is from Dera's home island. She is a fortune teller. It was funny that Dera caused her to think that the folks are brainwashing Dera with Mochi.

When she takes a bite out of the mochi, she falls in love with it. It reminds me of Squidward from Spongebob who hated krabby patties. Then, Squidward falls in love with the patties once he tries one.
