Tari Tari

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

Tari Tari is an anime series produced by P.A. Works, and directed by Masakazu Hashimoto.

Konatsu Miyamoto is an earnest high school girl, and she loves to sing and dance. She has been with her school's choir club, but she has been relegated to turning the pages of sheet music for the accompanist. When Konatsu asks the club's supervisor to allow her to sing with the group, the supervisor reminds her that at a major recital the previous school year, Konatsu had a major case of stage fright. With the upcoming recital being so important, the supervisor says she cannot perform with the group.

Frustrated, Konatsu quits, and decides she will form her own choir group at the school. In order to start her new group, Konatsu must have five members, find an advisor, and ultimately get a seal of approval from the head of the school.

Konatsu goes to her best friend, Sawa Okita, to ask her to join the new group. At first Sawa says she's already part of the archery club, but Konatsu convinces her that she can do both. After that, Sawa agrees to join.

Konatsu also approaches Wakana Sakai, a classmate who is known for having a good singing voice. Unfortunately for Konatsu, Wakana has given up on singing, and turns down Konatsu's invitation to join the group.

Taichi Tanaka is another of Konatsu's classmates. He's the sole member of the school's badminton club, but it's also shown in the first episode that he has a good singing voice.

Atsuhiro Maeda is a new transfer student in the class. He lived in Japan before, but he moved away to Austria, where he lived for 12 years before returning to Japan. Due to being away so long, he consults books for proper mannerisms and Japanese customs. Often, his attempts lead to humor, and he is definitely meant to be the "comic relief" for the series.

Tari Tari is a light-hearted "slice of life" anime. It's an enjoyable viewing experience if you like anime with high school protagonists going through the dramas encountered by this age group in their everyday lives. While it's not as compelling of a story as other anime series I have seen, it makes for good viewing if you need something light-hearted to watch. It's not a bad series at all, and I would have no problem watching more episodes of it if I can find the time to do so.

There's really nothing objectionable in the visuals or content for Tari Tari, so I would personally recommend the series to anime viewers who are 12 or 13 years of age and older.
