KyoAni released a short, 15-second commercial announcing their new series, Tamako Market. According to the video and the website, staff from K-ON will be involved including: director Naoko Tamada, writer Reiko Yoshida, and character designer Yukiko Horiguchi. Even from such a short video we can see KyoAni’s defining features: smooth animation, cute music, and a heaping helping of moé.
Very little is known about the focus of the series, other than that it is a completely original work and that there are rice cakes involved. I’m personally very excited for this series, as KyoAni has rarely failed to disappoint me (though I’ve found myself unable to finish Lucky Star). Still, I really enjoy original works, such as Tamako Market, that push the anime industry in a progressive direction.
