Kyoto Animation's K-ON! Team Makes TV Anime Tamako Market

posted on by Egan Loo
K-ON! director, writer, designer reunite for January 2013 anime

A commercial announced on Thursday that Kyoto Animation is producing a television anime series called Tamako Market for a January 2013 premiere:

Naoko Yamada (K-ON!) is directing, and Reiko Yoshida (K-ON!, Bakuman.) is in charge of the series scripts. Another K-ON! veteran, Yukiko Horiguchi (Lucky Star), is designing the characters.

Unlike K-ON! and Lucky Star, the new anime will have an original story not based on preexisting material. (The commercial and website's tagline reads, "Rice cakes, freshly pounded.") The new anime will run on the Tokyo MX TV, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, TV Aichi, and BS11 Digital channels.

The January issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Newtype magazine will run an interview with Yamada on December 10.

Update: More information added.
