Incredible finale, easily my pick of the season. I'd even rank it over Iroha, since this cast was more likable plus the humor and drama were both spot-on. And that performance alone outdid any moment Iroha had. Heck, I can't even recall a moment in Iroha that moved me nearly as much as this one did.

And the epilogue was satisfying enough to provide closure whilst leaving the possibility of a sequel open. I've seen quite a number of shows recently that desperately try to throw some hook out there to entice audiences into supporting a second season, and thankfully this isn't one of them.

This show definitely ended on a high note. Pun fully intended.

Poor principal. Yea that bit was not the best.

The rest of the episode was great though. Life isn't always about having everything work for you just because you are a main character. Tari Tari managed a feel-good ending while still having a dose of realism without some sugary sweet ending where everything is fine and dandy and shitting out rainbows. The future is uncertain but at least the memories are there and what small group of people they reached will remember the day. And the audience of course.

And of course a butt slap joke, but PA trolls us again!

Wakana having her hair grow longer almost makes her perfect. :3 And that cat is so fat it can't move anymore. Wonder what that's supposed to represent.

Anyhow, I love you guys PA; Tari Tari seemed to just be an interesting experience of self reflection of your previous works, and honestly comes across as something I've wanted to see from them in a long time. This anime seemed to have a lot of heart put into it, and at least from my point of view, it was greatly reciprocated.

Ending on an 8.5/10 for this series.

Watched the final episode today.

And just.. wow. I nearly cried - honest!
I've not been moved this much by other shows that I liked this year.

Wakana being calm and composed even if it's raining, just watch the rain along with her cat. Dora reminds me of "Skinny", the fat cat I recently saw in the newspaper.

Taichi's "hired" painter did a good job indeed on the painting, he's obviously taking pics of Sawa during the presentation .

Chairman is still a big **** up to the final episode, he's the type of person who deserves to be clubbed by a cannibal.

Vice Principal.. I remember she crumpled a paper in a past episode and got angry when Taichi don't want it thrown to the garbage can. This time she picks up a paper and uncrumples it - she's a kind person after all.. I would assume she got fired along with the principal. But I bet she's happy and content, and in some way she got to relive her time with her best friend because Wakana now acts very similar to Mahiru.

Principal, he finally got the courage to stand up to the **** err.. I mean the Chairman. And got fired in the process (physically hurt a little as well). I hope he still gets a decent pension or something.

Konatsu, she's a nice girl up to the last episode. She did not keep a grudge against Naoko (vice principal) and Nanae. Glad that she found some new friends after graduation.

Going to really miss seeing Konatsu and friends. No more once a week Tari Tari. iyaa..
I WISH WE GET AN OVA OR SOMETHING SIMILAR. /pray to otaku god

Now here's something that Principal Col. Sanders might be able to actually look cool handling.

1. Wakana lovebento round 2.

2. Kontasu being derpy with her dolphin plushy.

3. The high school musical drama. Tari Tari takes a page outta the American TV series "Glee"

4. Double ass-slap on Sawa by Wakana and Konatsu! Revenge is sweet

5. The subtle interaction between Sawa and Taichi particularly the bit where what they say was deliberately omitted. I -really- liked this. Best part of the episode actually. This is how you do romance element for a non-romance show folks, and I give shippers no sympathy since Tari Tari was never a romance series. So Nyah Nyah .

6. The graduation scene in the gym. The song and presentation of the scene was great.

7. The epilogue showing Tanaka playing badminton, Wien finding Jan, Konatsu making college friends and Wakana looking sexy in casual clothings and high heels (mature ftw).

There were two things however, that caused an eyebrow to rise or so:

1. The whole Chairman incident. Manufactured and artificial drama and made the chairman look like a Disney Channel villain.

2. The Vice Principal pulling down the chairman's pants and then getting fired. Talk about his pride being totally destroyed and him being emasculated. Please tell me Mari Okada wasn't writing this scene by off-chance....

Otherwise, it was a very solid finish to an excellent series. Tari tari confirms that PA Works' slice of life anime originals are some of the best in the industry for the genre and it's pretty much locked in I'll be watching their shows in the future.

In a nutshell, Tari Tari is simplicity done to its finest. The premise is standard, the cast is standard, but it's full of heart, genuinity and is the definition of unpretentious. Perfect balance of comedy and drama, lighthearted and seriousness, and unlike many drama shows (*cough Anohana, Ano Natsu, Kokoro Connect *cough) it seldom goes overboard with melodrama (only the Sawa arc I will question) and the lighthearted moments are pinpoint, sharp and don't linger on unlike those Japanese gag-centric shows. For me, Tari Tari is what K-on never was, and what Hanasaku Iroha -nearly was- (though Iroha was still excellent) by combining both a musical element and coming of age without resorting to one-dimensional moe pandering or outrageous plot decisions (*e.g. Iroha episode 3*).

Not quite the perfect show I hoped for, but it's close. Tied with Jinrui and Hyouka for favourite of the season at which I rate all three 8.5/10s, being a shy away from making my all-time favourite lists (9/10 is cutoff).

low key doesn't mean there's no strong emotions,you can show strong emotions in a low key way,the end of this episode for example has everyone tearing up as Sawa says goodbye,has Taichi confess to her and he sheds a tear and stays alone to watch the airplane go away as the others leave him behind.That's overall some strong emotions.

I'd call it restrained instead of low-key, and it depends on the situation. Wakana crying in her room because of her mother is a pretty emotionally strong moment, but she's in her room alone and the "camera" doesn't linger on it, so the presentation is restrained and intimate, which does make it seem more genuine as it doesn't try to manipulate your emotions so blatantly. And that's the issue: more often than not some writers use grand displays of emotions to manipulate the audience's feelings even if the story doesn't warrant such moments. That's what some people usually call "forced drama", drama that's forced down the audience's throat, so to speak.

I appreciate the series that can make me teary eyed without trying so hard. Tari Tari is just like that. There were some little moments when it went overboard with the cheese though, particularly in the last episode, but I can dismiss it easily because the rest was really good.
