Konatsu has some serious stage fright issues.
Looks like she was lucky enough to recruit the required number of student to get their choir club approved.
It's pretty cool how many people actually joined in the end.
The song for the recital sounded nice.
Her former choir club sensei seems to be making trouble for their new club every step of the way.

Since everyone seems to want to make comparisons to that anime, I'll just say that Tari Tari has already done twice with only two episodes what that anime failed to do in its entire 26 episode run: end an episode on an extremely positive, uplifting note.

The ending scene was really nice however. Though I still question if you should had something that "dramatic" so early. Felt like it would fit in nicely at the end of arc.
Maybe that was the end of an arc. Plus, there seems to be even more dramatic stirrings going on that might have more of an emotional impact in subsequent episodes.

It might, but extremely unlikely. As good as Tari Tari is, it reeks of unoriginality (despite being the only anime original of the season - oh the irony), though it is executing them very well. Really, it is a derivative series that combine elements of various "moe" and slice of shows. That alone, prevents it from being a potential masterpiece not to mention the Sakamichi no Appollon like pacing problems from this ep that prevent maximum potential enjoyment. It's still very good though!

Rushed pacing is no better than dragged pacing. Very few anime get it right and Tari Tari with ep 2 already proved this. Also not ending on a positive note =/= bad. Why does everything have to end positively? Why can't it be bittersweet for example.

Also you misread the definition of Hanasaku Iroha butterflies. I meant that as in "what could have been" scenario. Iroha had the potential to be the slice of life/drama of the decade with its pilot episode, but never matched it in its later episodes, though that too was also very good by the end. Tari Tari in ep 2 already is starting to give me that feeling. We will see though!

Which felt rushed and insufficiently developed.

Bravo, bravo!

Excellent Season Finale. It truly brought a tear to my eye. Granted, the male characters were a little bit shafted, but at least we had some nice jokes over Wien's name to show how, over time, the guy has been so very accepted and beloved by his new friends. Plus, it's good to see the running bathroom joke about "porn stash" guy come up again in this season finale, tying this finale back into the series opener.

Why, it seems like only a week has passed since I started watching Tari Tari, and yet here I am, having watched a truly moving season finale.

Like any good season finale, we're treated to the OP or ED being inserted in a epic way that includes special credits rolling. This is to remind the viewer, of course, that this is in fact the season finale, and that we're saying good bye to the show. So this gives Tari Tari touching finality, leaving me feeling melancholic over its end. Having the girls sing to give us the final ED, after struggling for so long to overcome stage fright and a harsh teacher... So poignant. So beautiful. So inspirational.

Just as assuredly as Simon pieced through the heavens with his mighty drill, so too has Konatsu pierced through to my heart with her glorious voice, giving us a truly epic season-spanning tale of overcoming so much to realize her ultimate school dream.

9/10 for the season finale of Tari Tari.


... Wait, what's that you say? There's more?

A second season has been announced you mean? What, this season isn't over yet? But that was clearly a season finale, wasn't it? What can top this? ... Forever alone guy is going to try to get people to join his badminton team? I see. Well, I guess I'll check it out next week then.






In complete seriousness, it was a very good episode. But yeah, I hope that Tari Tari isn't always this rushed.

Couple extra notes:

1. Gotta love the Principal looking like somebody out of medieval Europe, lol.

2. Lovely scenery. That, combined with how the three main female characters carry themselves, really give this show a great sense of enhanced realism.

It appears Konatsu is the new Chitanda in terms of avatars. So. Much. Konatsu. Everywhere. Oh wait, I have a Konatsu avatar too .

When I saw these legs, I was hoping it was Sawa... Needless to say, I was very disappointed. That was quite a nice troll. Why does he have such beautiful legs anyway? Gahh!!

Wakana basically stop being bitchy all of a sudden and how did Konatsu all of sudden get so many choir members? It did what it took Chihayafuru portrayed in 5-6 episodes, which imo in that show was the "perfect pacing" in regards to setting up a club and getting members.
The set up phase may not be quite over actually, since according to the OP Wiener and Badminton will join the club (the OP could be misleading though).

PA Works somehow manages to emasculate males without having THAT writer on board. But in fairness, it was not offensive but rather a hilarious troll so I don't mind . It was also very brief.

I am hoping though, that it won't be a running gag...

Maybe, I see your issue and I wouldn't call it nitpicky. I think the signs are there but they are more not immediately obvious but are there, just minor details, so the transition can feel off. They really didn't dwell on Sakai's reaction, as they focused more on Konatsu, but they did give it a hint here and there: when Sakai was riding off, the last thing that Konatsu shouts out strikes a cord, later Sakai finds Konatsu singing out in the open and the former and the latter click, add in some Sawa magics and bang. Ya, they didn't dwell on it and it is a bit squeezed in, but I don't know if they had all that much material to use to extend the events of this episode into a full other or if it wasn't a *knowing sacrifice* for the sake of giving the bigger plot motions later on more time as they would deserve.

Who knows, few weeks down the road we can come back to this post and laugh, or maybe we'll be all: "So that's what it was!"

Although not as drastic as an eight year time leap, it did get ahead of itself very quickly, but I see that more as leaving out the unimportant stuff, and getting down to the business at hand, in other words, the concert itself. Unlike a minor time skip where we are left wondering what on earth happened between the newly formed couple over a period of months, we were given all the elements to explain what basically happened in the short time before the concert.

Also not ending on a positive note =/= bad. Why does everything have to end positively? Why can't it be bittersweet for example.
Bittersweet is one thing (usually reserved for a bittersweet ending to the whole anime), but depressing is another. And, no, I don't thnk every episode has to end on a positive note. I even doubt that all episodes of Tari Tari will. But I never felt the elation at the end of any of those 26 episodes that I have already felt with both episodes of this anime.

Really, when I watch an anime, I judge it on its own merits, instead of, like so many, dissecting it bit-by-bit, making comparisons to this anime or that anime. I might even get more enjoyment out of an anime because I don't try to compare it to things I've watched before. Not to say I can't make comparisons, but I like to watch an anime to the end (or drop it if I can't stand it after a few episodes) before I make any final conclusions as to where I think it stands regarding all the other anime I've already watched.

It really did feel like a season finale lol. Do they have so much story planned that they couldn't spend three episodes on this arc?

And hey, pleasantly surprised to have a beach episode already

I just finished 2nd episode and the first part took my heart by surprise. My lolicon alarm is ringing not stopped. Konantsu is a complete good walking moe without the stupid moeblob on it that I would probably label the K-ON girls.

This story actually surprised me when I watched the first episode. To be honest. I haven't check the synopsis so I'm not familiar with it but at read that it reminds of the past pa works with girls too that make me watched it only on few couple episode then dropped it because the pacing and the story change drastically for my taste. I wish it won't happen on this one and its still too early to tell but I think I will love this series.

Though it has mix of lots of love and fluff but also a bit annoying on it. I feel irritated on that guy that need to buy a new book to learn his Japanese culture. Him continuing to talk while in the middle of conversation feels annoying but like the others ignoring him. I also ignore him but the one he is stalking with I can't ignore

I also like the songs that's been played in the recital.

Just finished episode 2 and like the first one, it really continues to show promise and meet my expectations. The principle... the first thing that came to mind when I saw him was "Is that George Washington?".

Konatsu's character continues to surprise me, in terms of her dedication to her love of music and to prove herself to those who doubt her abilities. I'm happy that she was able to overcome her nervousness of singing in front of others, in an unique and interesting fashion (watermelons...). Her personality is just so adorable and a treat to watch, especially when she threatens her brother about his porn stash. Poor kid can't get a break, but still she's awesome so no complaints. Her friend Sawa is such a troll, uploading her epic fail on a YT like site... I seriously laughed when that happened.

The songs were a treat to listen too, especially the duet at the end.

officially shipping Sawa and anything.

pacing was obviously fast, but i think its necessary to develop everything they hope to develop. though i have no idea where the series will go from here. like everyone else, i was expecting this ep to be the last one. haha.

Finished watching episode 2. I still love Konatsu, and I'll be damned if I don't love Sawa. These 2 alone are more than enough to put this in my No. 2 spot for the season (unconditional SAO love being No. 1).

But in all honesty, the character interaction/development in this is great. That's in no small part to it feeling so naturally realistic.

- Konatsu and Sawa act how I expect two close friends to naturally act. Everything they did, Konatsu blackmailing her bro, reacting to Sawa's teasing (pillow + adorable fetal position), her stage fright, and Sawa had her various moments as well, though one my favourite moments was her "Yes!" during archery.

- The cake thing? Simple, but it worked perfectly.

- The scene at the pregnancy ward? Hilarious. But again, no crazy reaction or over the top happenings. That teacher is so awesome.

- Even the chaos at the beginning. Some people have expressed dislike for it, but I loved every second. Sitting there watching/listening to the various and disjointed conversations was a hoot. "Vienna?" "Wienna?" "Shut up! Both is fine!" Ha ha ha

The most unnatural moments for me had been the principal's accident (just the timing of it all), and how skilled Konatsu and Sawa's performance was. That doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it though, cause I loves me some good old music integration wherever I can get it.

All in all, I hope it keeps this up since I'll take this in large doses any day.

EDIT: After re-watching, I just noticed Konatsu lost her ice cream when Sawa pulled her away in the beginning. D'awww.

Well, whatever. I'll definitely stick around to find out anyway.

This is still a fairly enjoyable show despite its flaws, so let's just wait and see, shall we?
