Overview of Tamako Market

Within the Usagiyama shopping district is an eccentric but tight-knit community of business owners. Tamako Kitashirakawa, a clumsy but lovable teenager, belongs to a family of mochi bakers who own a quaint shop called Tama-ya. One day, Ella Tamako stumbles upon a talking bird that introduces itself as royalty from a faraway land. Dera Mochimazzi, as he calls himself, claims that he is looking for a bride for the prince of his country.

Intent on fulfilling her mission, Dera follows Tamako home and develops an addiction to mochi, causing her to become painfully overweight and subsequently unable to fly back to her homeland; thus, he settles in with Tamako’s family and becomes the community’s beloved pet. Meanwhile, Tamako’s friend, Mochizou Ooji, continues to hide her true feelings for her. Her parents are fierce mochi rivals, but will it be enough to drive a wedge between Tamako and Mochizou? And what will happen to Dera’s task of finding the destined bride of his prince?
