Thanks KyoAni, never knew I had a thing for embarrassed, headstrong cute little brown girls until now.
So the show finally starts to bring in the Dera side of things with Choi joining the cast. Unsurprisingly, this turned out to be the best Tamako Market episode to date after the premiere episode, with the episode having equal amounts of brown little girl cuteness balanced with some implications of broken hearts. Poor tofu-shop guy （；へ：）
Nothing really much to complain, aside from the sudden surprise reveal of the impending marriage, which literally came out of nowhere, but I’d chalk it up to the production wasting three episodes (2, 3, 4) earlier on. There barely was any proper development of the Usagi-yama shopkeepers in those and now it seems like they are trying to catch up to it. I just hope they have enough time to do whatever they wanted with this show. As far as it’s going, it’s not really going to be a decent show, much less a smash hit.
Sometimes, I do wonder if KyoAni is sick of being so famous that they try to destroy their rep themselves (although it never seems to work right). I seriously wonder.
