On the other side of the street is a rival rice cake shop owner and his son, Mochikura. Their fathers tend to fight like dogs and monkeys, but Mochikura and Tamako have been childhood friends. Mochikura has secretly given his heart to Tamako, but she hasn't recognized what he's doing. With both Mochikura and Midori in love with Tamako, there's often battles unfolding around her.

Tamako loves the other shopkeepers like they were her own family. She surrounds herself with a lot of people. Everyday is busy for the district, but the busiest time of the year is the end of the year. Oddly though, Tamako's birthday is New Years's Eve. Every year, the entire shopping district holds an event to congratulate her. The timing is awful for Mochikura, who wanted to give her a present up until now.

Mochikura is suddenly in high spirits. "This year I'll definitely do it!"
-At the same time that dazzling bird (cockatoo) suddenly appears in the shopping district. The shopping district is getting busier and busier for Tamako and pals. A different year than normal is about to begin.

Edit: summary has been pulled from Animax's site. Yaraon and otaku.com have confirmation it was up.
Hmm... I don't know what to say. So far, the premise doesn't interested me at the moment, which is unusual when it comes to Kyoani. Although, I do realize that Kyoani enjoys adding some of their own feminine touches in most of their works which is actually a seinen, but this one really sounds like something coming from a typical shoujo manga which doesn’t really helps. I’ve nothing against shoujo materials, but not a huge fan of them. I really do hope there will be something that can change my impression eventually. Like many of Kyoani's previous works, I'm rooting for some interesting characters with great dynamics.

Nichijou, if I recall correctly.

Why does something like that need to be in a show about a market in the first place? Why would we need to focus on a school environment to begin with? It's a pointless crutch.
That's why I'd be annoyed here. It'd just be filler of the kind we've all seen a hundred times before, and all the worse in an original series.

It doesn't need to. I'm just saying that, since the show doesn't seem to be focused on student life (although we don't really know enough to say for sure), a cultural festival would be interesting because it would involve more visitors than the usual culture festivals, which are usually centered on the students.

I'm not saying the show should have a culture festival or that you're wrong for thinking it's unneeded. I would like Tamako Market to stay mostly in a town-centric setting as well. I could still enjoy a culture festival if they included one though .

To be honest, I expect this series to be more like Working than Lucky Star. The only promo image we have is of her with an apron, after all.

The girl featured in the 15 second PV reminds me of Chitanda. How awesome is this series going to be? I'm curious!

After Hyouka, KyoAni can make all the cultural festivals they want as far as I'm concerned.

True. Then there are those people that exist which I'm probably one of that actually like fillers, so if as said most culture festivals are filler than I'd enjoy it.

Except even after this synopsis it still doesn't interest me as much as Hyouka or Chuunibyo did at this point. But I can only wait and see.

Aya Suzaki, a very new seiyuu, is playing Tamako Kitashirakawa and singing the opening/ending themes.

The OP/ED singles will go on sale 2013/01/25 for 1200 yen each. They are sold by Pony Canyon, so it looks like Tamako Market has a slightly different production company than Chuunibyou (no Lantis).

Now we just need to hear a good sample of Aya's voice. It appears she was in ep. 5 of To Love-Ru Darkness but I don't watch that series.

Sounds like her voice fits the character's design pretty well. It's definitely cute.

Sounds cutesy whilst being able to drift over to a serious side if necessary- good for KyoAni works.

And boy, it must be pretty awesome to have a Christmas birthday. :3

A bit of a side-topic, but honestly most people I know who have birthdays in and around Christmas never liked it because any celebration just gets swallowed up and overshadowed by the holidays. As you get older, though, and you want people to not remember that you're getting older, then it's more acceptable...

Well, Tamako's birthday is New Year Eve, so she's perfect for the role

Nagisa from Clannad had birthday on Christmas. And I could remember couple of other characters with the same case.

Also, you may only get one gift instead of two when people celebrate birthdays on days other than Xmas and Xmas.

having a birthday the same date of a family occasion will make your birthday and that occasion celebration the same. Its not a good thing. But at least it looks like the people from the market likes Tamako and they probably celebrate it at least even though its the same as celebrating the new years eve.

Some people I know with late December birthdays had their celebration of it in June to keep it seperated from the Holidays.
