That definitely could be something to serve as a wrap up.

It could be about Tanaka, Wien, Konatsu, and Wakana all paying Sawa a visit, and making a real vacation to a foreign country out of it to boot. It could be a pretty nice movie, and be similar to the K-On! film.
I like this idea... Hopefully something like this comes true.

I want they to meet again together, while doing something new, they remembered all the things in the past~

Maybe Wakana's new song again for the main song?

Maybe it could even be what brings them all together again. For example, let's say Wakana wins a music contest at college and she gets to have her latest song sung in a concert abroad (and she also gets to attend too), which just so happens to be in the same country Sawa went to. Realizing this Wakana calls the rest of the gang and they all meet there.

Something like that.

I think I listened to that full choir version of Reflectia a bit too many times ...

I wanted a movie even before the show ended

Right now I'm 'wasting' my time by listening to the songs one by one and doing nothing else~ (I don't feel it's wasted anyway)
I need the english title translation for disc 1 >.< Can't understand the title.. Can anyone tell me where I get the translation? Google translate didn't help to tell me the title clearly.

It's a popular thing to say that "Tari Tari is well-executed at what it does, but I don't think it will be remembered" atm. Imo, I call bollocks on that. In terms of slice of life/drama TV series (not including movies, I consider them a different medium altogether really partly due to budget differences), I can think of two that were of comparable quality in recent times and that was Hyouka that also recently ended and Usagi Drop of last year.

Everything else despite "ambition" as many people seem to look for in series, either fell on its face on more than one occasion, had some supernatural gimmick or two, artificial melodrama and/or pacing problems. Personally, "ambition" or "plot" is not a trait I look for in slice of life/drama (that's more so in fantasy, sci-fi or intended "epic" series) but rather how relatable it is. Subtleness, Genuinity, Understatement, Sentiment and how much heart it has in general are all virtues I look for. Tari Tari had ton of this, albeit it wasn't absolutely perfect - it was very close.

Plot devices for drama, excessive "moeblobs", exaggerated melodrama, Obnoxiousness, pretending to be something when it isn't and generally trying too hard to evoke an reaction are elements that put me off. Don't think I need to repeat myself on examples

EDIT: Forgot Wandering Son. My bad.

I agree completely. Personally I think Tari Tari is one of the best slice of life shows out there. It's better than Iroha and miles away from the likes of K-ON. These characters felt alive, which is something pretty rare in anime this days. I call achieving that ambition!

Imo, the show lacks that little something to make it truly memorable. I agree that it's a good series with decent execution, but it seems to be missing an x-factor that will really clinch the deal - I'm thinking of something along the lines of the ending in 5 cm per second.

To me it's more a solid series with near-perfect execution at what it's trying to be, and it's never intended nor tried to be some ambitious social commentary or meant to baw your eyes out.

In terms of movies, like I said in my above post, movies are different beast alltogether. 5cm/s, Place Promised in Our Early Days, Time of Eve, Colorful, Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Only Yesterday, Millenium Actress, Ocean Waves and the list goes on. These are all magnificent movies of the drama genre... but they are movies, they should be held in different (higher) standards because they have the BUDGET, don't have to pack in as much content as a TV series and can spend more $ per scene making each scene look more remarkable.

I think it lacks seminality. It's good, yes, but it's not original enough to be a game changer, and it's not enough of a masterpiece to really stand out.

Of course. Then again the slice of life genre is not seminal. Even the best of the genre like 5cm or Usagi Drop are not seminal, but they achieved what they aimed to do in flying colors. Sure, you can tack on supernatural elements to make things more "ambitious" or "original" like a whole bunch of anime this year have, but that just exponentially adds more chance to fall flat on its face... which every single one has done so this year btw (maybe except Tsuritama, but the supernatural elements in that were very mild).

You have to look into sci-fi, fantasy, supernatural or the more "substance" genres to look for seminal ... which is exactly why "plot, premise, concept" is something I look for in those.

Also, nothing is completely seminal these days. Virtually everything is a repackagement of something that's been done in the past, and it's quality depends on how its executed/presented.

Yeah, but there are things that (re)awaken fads. Like Lucky Star did for slice of life comedy centered around four high school girls. Tari Tari isn't going to be one of those.

Azumanga Daioh did that 3-4 years before Lucky star did. And before that there was most likely something else.

I'd rather have more anime in the vein of Hyouka than Tari Tari, that being said, if you do want to compare Slice of Life Shows.

However, Tari Tari is a fun little piece of entertainment. Nothing exceptional, but neither is it horrible.

Good execution is a necessary condition for a show to be considered great, but in my opinion, it is not a sufficient condition on its own. An analogy could be drawn with olympic diving, where competitors get a score for execution and multiplied by a difficulty factor. A well-executed dive will get high scores for execution, but a diver will not get anywhere if he's only a master of the jacknife and can't do any somersaults.

Of course, movies are an entirely different ball-game, but series can have memorable scenes as well. I referred to 5 cm per second because it was the first example that came to my mind, but the point I was making was that Tari Tari seems to lack that final slam dunk. It doesn't have to be something that's costly to produce. It could be an episode (School Days final ep ), a scene (5 cm/second ending), a single frame, or a single quote (Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn).

Overall, I applaud Tari Tari for its execution, but I can't really find the x-factor that would take it from good to great.

Pretty much agree on this.

And I prefer more anime in the veins of Usagi Drop. Tastes differ .

Not taking anything away from Hyouka though, since that's also excellent. For me, it's hard to say what's better because they have different aims. Hyouka was more wrapped in more unrealistic but interesting purely fiction set-ups using fancier, prettier and more sophisticated presentation but really it didn’t approach characterization any deeper. Someone with "near god-like detective" skills like Oreki are extremely rare. Not saying it wasn't interesting though, because it definitely was and the relationship between him and Satoshi is what the series for me. Unless you're a Chitanda shipper .

I actually stopped trying to decide what's better, and decided with a cop-out Jinrui, Tari Tari and Hyouka all being the best of the season.

What you just said reminded me of this scene which pretty much sums up my thoughts on the matter
