Tari Tari is an upcoming Japanese anime series that will premiere on July 1, 2012. It will be animated by PA Studios, the same geniuses who worked on Hanasaku Iroha and feature “Shiokaze no Harmony” (by Shirahamazaka High School Chorus Club) as the opening song, while “Dreamer” (by AiRI) will be the ending song. The show will star Ayahi Takagaki (Heaven’s Lost Property’s Mikako, Durarara!!’s Erika), Asami Seto (Chihayafuru’s Chihaya, Lagrange – The Flower of Rin-ne’s Lan), Saori Hayami (Eden of the East’s Saki, Bakuman.’s Miho), Nobunaga Shimazaki (Ano Natsu de Matteru’s Kaito, Shakugan no Shana III (Final)’s Orobas), and Natsuki Hanae (Ben-To, Kimi to Boku.).
- This is probably the number one anime I’m going to watch this summer. A quick glance at the artwork indicates that the characters greatly resemble those in Hanasaku Iroha, and moreover, as per Hanasaku Iroha, the music is warm and friendly.
The story centers around five Japanese high school students who are too young to be called adults, but who no longer think of themselves as children. Wakana Sakai once took music lessons, but she withdrew from music after losing her mother. Konatsu Miyamoto is a positive-thinking girl who loves singing and spends time after school at the vocal music club. Sawa Okita is a spirited archery club member who dreams of becoming a horse rider. Daichi Tanaka is a chronically late badminton team member who lives with his college student sister. “Wiin” just transfered into Wakana’s class after 12 years abroad in Australia. Music brings Wakana, Konatsu, Sawa and the others together into an ensemble during their last summer in high school.
