Kyoto Animation began streaming the newest promotional video for Tamako Market, the upcoming television anime from the main staff of K-ON!, just before midnight on New Year's Eve. The same video had debuted at the Comic Market (Comiket) 83 event in Tokyo this past weekend.
The staff already revealed that Aya Suzaki (Bakuman., Manyū Hiken-chō, To Love-Ru -Trouble- Darkness) will play the title heroine Tamako Kitashirakawa, a high-school freshman who is cheerful, spirited, and kind to others. She is the mochi-loving daughter of a mochi shopkeeper in the shopping district and a baton club member.
Naoko Yamada (K-ON!) is directing, and Reiko Yoshida (K-ON!, Bakuman.) is in charge of the series scripts. Another K-ON! veteran, Horiguchi (Lucky Star), is designing the characters.
The anime will premiere on January 9 on the Tokyo MX TV station. It will also run on the Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, TV Aichi, BS11 Digital, and BS Animax channels.
