I'm looking at purchasing Tamako Love Story while the pre-order discount is still in effect. I've only just realized that it's a continuation of a TV series.

Could anyone tell me if viewing Tamako Market is a prerequisite for understanding and/or enjoying the movie? And, if I think the mascot/comic relief character will annoy me, would the TV series still be worth watching?
