It wouldn't be that bad if it had some light romance in it for shippers cutesy sake, but if it invovles full-blown soap opera melodrama, then it will absolutely destroy a series like Tari Tari. Soap opera drama worked excellently in True Tears since romance/drama was the core theme and also worked well in Hanasaku Iroha as the Kou/Ohana dynamic was a signficant part of the series (albeit people are mixed on whether it was done well or not), but Tari Tari is substantially different from those two. It has a different vibe and purpose - Tari Tari in a nutshell is a "feel good" type of series, that happens to be very well executed despite its unremarkable premise. A superior version of last season's Natsuiro Kiseki if you wanna call it.

I thought of it as a romance anime ( because its relation to True Tears), then it turned to be a musical.... Now I;m kinda lost.... a little more of interaction among the males and females would be livelier..

It's none of the above. It's a derivative series and it takes a little bit of cute girls doing cute things, a little bit of music, a little bit of drama, a little bit of comedy and a little bit of scenery porn (albeit recycled inferior Hanasaku Iroha scenery porn lol). But despite being really "unoriginal" and unremarkable, when you add the sum of its parts, it's actually really well executed. Less potential in premise than Iroha did, but at least for now, it's somehow turning out to be better ironically. Must be because of all those wasted episodes in Iroha .

Same reason why I'm enjoying the current festival arc in Hyouka immensely. That's arguably even more unremarkable in premise but somehow Kyoani made it very entertaining due to how much detail and finesse they put into it. And this is is coming from a person who cool story bro'd K-on, Nichijou and even somewhat the Dissappearance movie (yes, I'm one of the few who thought it was merely "okay". I still like Haruhi S1 though). I don't consider Hyouka a mystery at all (at least not a hard mystery). In fact, I think Tari Tari has more common with Hyouka than with True Tears or Hanasaku Iroha in the way they take the simple and mundane and turn into something entertaining and very pleasant to watch, without making it "derp" - i.e. exaggerated moe to the point of "moeblob".

Episode 4:

The part with the young Konatsu dancing. That part was so cute!

Also loved the way Sawa dealt with Konatsu's disturbance at night. A stuffed dog against the face makes everything ok again

That was quite the talking Sawa gave to Konatsu, but of course, she was right and it had to be said.

I'm guessing the Condor Queens have a pet pig for the jamon or maybe chorizo. Both of them must be hard to get in Japan so homemade is the way to go.

I'm not going to say this show is losing its way, but the relationships do seem to be lacking something, either in finesse or intensity. Things have to keep moving or I will lose the impulse to identify with the characters (except for Sawa, lol). Maybe it's just that the group's musical opportunities seem a bit haphazard, so the drive of the show is being dissipated.

I'm not necessarily looking for romance, although I do believe that the show's direction is not set in stone at this point. Romance is still possible, in various directions, although the hints so far have been pretty light. But in any case the characters' emotions and relationships seem to me to lack focus. Especially when I compare this show to Kokoro Connect.

I want to care about Konatsu's music, but her reactions in this episode didn't help. The way her emotional reaction to the Condor Queens was portrayed was not strong enough to explain, for me, her abandoning the chance to sing. So the basic emotional trajectory of the episode didn't touch me. I understand why she might have had that reaction, but I didn't feel it.

And Wakana seems to take a step forward...and then just settle back into immobility again. I'd like to see a bit more movement, even if it isn't progress. Or maybe I'd just like to see more of her so I can intuit her feelings and thoughts more clearly.

I'm also feeling that Seto Asami is taking Konatsu a bit too close to Chihaya right now. Fortunately, Konatsu is still a much lighter character, so there is still usually a different feeling.

The pieces are being moved on the chessboard, but I'm not getting the emotional hit I want from them. Nevertheless, this show is operating at a higher level than most others, and I'm still enjoying it a lot. But it's slipping behind Hyouka and Kokoro Connect, for me.

EDIT: Has anyone yet pointed out that the end credits say the big foreigner is played by ホルヘ デイアス (Horuhe Diasu) -- which looks to me like a transliteration of "Jorge Diaz." So perhaps this is an actual Spanish-speaking actor, from whichever continent (likely Spain itself). I may just have missed this in the discussion.

Me too, just wish they were longer, but the story must move forward eventually. The True Tear's homage from episode one still gives me the chills, in a good sense.

Wein continues to steal the show for me with his antics, but I can't help but feel there's going to be a rough culmination soon on his character. He's still completely out of place in every respect and acts like a do-anything superhero. Just following his character, he's never turned down anything and tries his best at whatever he's given but the cast seems to... still be ignoring him. Every character has been presented a conflict, so to speak, right now except Wein. If you notice:
  • Sawa has her priorities between her horse (and now maybe something incoming from Taichi) and music.
  • Wakana has her priorities or, should I say, conflicts between her childhood love of music and her bad memories because of her mothers past.
  • Taichi has his priorities split between music (possibly Sawa?) and his desire to be a pro (which requires true dedication) in badminton.
  • Konatsu has, as this episode presented, conflict between music and friends, in that she cannot seem to realize where to draw the line between the two.
And then there's Wein, who's just a presence. His only conflict is his out of place status that every episode lampshades but never addresses or brings up as a problem directly (seems like its meant to be inferred). I suppose the fact that no one really pays him any attention would be his conflict. He runs to Wakana's rescue, gives his all for Konatsu's club even though he seems to be picking up singing for the first time ever, joins Taichi's club and, again, never having picked up a racket in his life. (All of this screams "Notice me" to me, and given his PoV, I think this may be what the writers are going for with his character. He has one or two an episode.) Still though, this episode made him feel like a person outside of the group that he's in... he's where Wakana is in the ED through the episode, while Wakana is where he is in the ED during the episode (that is, at the center of attention). Storms a brewing, I just know it.

That said, this episode seems to be setting the stage for:
Sawa and Taichi drama soon, possibly romance (but... PA works, your PVs are evil, and this feels like a red herring).
Wein and Wakana is a bit of a toss up...

Another good episode.

The show seems to love introducing road blocks and innerclub conflicts. Romance would be a possible (and powerful, though not necessarily good) conflict to use as a hotbed for strife between the members. We've as of so far had conflict between Sawa/Konatsu and Konatsu/Wakana, nothings formed up between the boys/girls or amongst the boys.

Just look at mashifony. That was a feel good series at the start until the gears ramped up around the midway point... still was an impeccably good story though.

Well if it makes you feel any better, we'll probably be seeing a chibi Wien at the start of the next episode. It's his turn after all.

They don't seem to be following a set order, weren't Ep. 1 and 3 both Wakana?

Also, I forgot, they really underscored the social outcast sort of feel with Wein when they had him trying to befriend animals at lunch rather than the abundance of people in his school.

I wonder what Wien's chibi flashback will be? Him being in Vianna and introducing us to the person he wrote a letter to in episode 1. Just so many possibilities, hope he gets one, this guy is just plain awesome!

The last part of the tune is also very similar to a sample from the choir song they sang in last episode (last sang part like "kagayaku egao de sukoshi ga hibi yo") which is also the part sang by Wakana's mother in her flashbacks while she was playing piano.
Wakana's mother may have something to do with this song too, or I am just fooled by a nicely done soundtrack
So, episode 4 explains why I thought thoses song parts were so similar in ep 3.

Wein was very entertaining. Keep it up guy! Next chibi should be about him.
The band was ok, fitting the "beach" setup pretty well.
Let's hope to see more Sakai next ep too.
And as always, Sawa was gorgeous.

Chibi Konatsu still the best one.

Has the cover for the OP single been revealed yet? I feel like buying this one.
