tamako market midway impression

ImageThis show really doesn’t know how to create tension.

Owners: There is a ghost in the market

Girl:  No there isn’t

Owners: Ok then

What was the point?

The biggest problem with this show is that it feels like it should be going somewhere, yet with each passing episodes we stay in the same place with the same bland characters.  6 episodes in and I can only can remember 3 “characters” by sight: Tamako (she is the title character), that boy across the street, the bird and that flower shop woman (she has a man’s voice).

I have a really hard time differentiating other “characters”. 


Episode 5 really confused me??? I can understand that some friends can be get very defensive when it comes to boys dating their closest friends (people don’t what to lose there friend to someone ells) however, she sort of comes off as a bit lesbian in this episode.

I can kind of understand stopping a love confession being delivered by bird (even if it does sound romantic) but, when you start to ferociously keeping them apart, asking Tamako who she like best and even intimidating the boy (I haven known her longer and I know more about her then you) I have to ask the question, are you sexual attracted to this girl?

At the end of the episode she just randomly becomes ok with it and moves on…..what? You can’t have that character be that defensive change their mind that quickly (you need a good reason for that to happen).


It’s a cute show! I just wish it would stop doing forced conflicts.
