Inside the Usagiyama Shopping District lies an eccentric but close-knit community of business owners. Tamako Kitashirakawa, a clumsy though adorable teenage girl, belongs to a family of mochi bakers who own a quaint shop called Tama-ya. One day, Tamako stumbles upon a talking bird that presents himself as royalty from a distant land. Dera Mochimazzi, as he calls himself, states that he’s seeking a bride for his country’s prince. Intent on his mission, Dera follows Tamako home and develops an addiction to mochi, becoming painfully overweight and subsequently unable to fly back to his homeland; thus, he takes up residence with Tamako's family and becomes the community’s beloved mascot. Meanwhile, Tamako's friend, Mochizou Ooji, continues to hide his true feelings for her. Their fathers are fierce mochi rivals, but will it be enough to drive a wedge between Tamako and Mochizou? And just what will happen to Dera's task of finding his prince’s destined bride?

I once went to the Tamako Market, and man is it filled with the nicest of people. I even saw some really cute girls there. Will visit again.


It is a really cute story! make sure to watch the movie too if you want to know more about Tamako x Mochizou!


fat birb


It was sweet and everything, but relatively forgetful. It was well animated and I loved the lil animal friend


Despite what you may hear, Tomako Market is so much more than just the ‘unfortunate stepping stone on the path towards Love Story’.


Chitanda, minus the “I’m curious.” And loves mochi instead of mysteries.


People said this is boring, yet this is pretty enjoyable for me. Animation are outstanding as expected of KyoAni. Story fell abit short tho.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
