According to the official website, Kyoto Animation’s next original TV Anime Tamako Market (たまこまーけっと) is coming this winter and will be premiered in January 2013. The announcement was made during the commercial and you can check it out below. The official Twitter also revealed the related staff of the series, including K-ON!’s director Naoko Yamada (山田 尚子), series composition Reiko Yoshida (吉田 玲子), and of course, one that we can never fail to mention, Yukiko Horiguchi (堀口 悠紀子), probably the best known character designer of KyoAni, who also participated in Kokoro Connect and other hot series like Lucky Star.
Speculations were all around the web discussing what the story will be, and we do see some hints either from the illustration or the tagline reads “Rice cakes, freshly pounded. (ANN)”. Our guess is the series may be something related to the food market, or second hand market, like the title (Egg Market) indicates. But it’s just a pure guess. Continue with Hyouka and then Chuunibyo demo Koi ga Shitai!, we are more than happier to expect what surprise KyoAni will bring to us this time. Stay tuned and we will bring more updates on this.
