HOUSTON, APRIL 4, 2017 – Sentai Filmworks is reuniting fans of the beloved 2013 Kyoto Animation series Tamako Market with their favorite mochi shops of the Usagiyama Shopping District. Helmed by Tamako Market director Naoko Yamada (K-ON!, A Silent Voice), Tamako-love story- is an all-new tale that takes place after the events of the original television series.

Mochizo Oji, the son of a mochi (rice cake) shop owner, is just as lovelorn as ever as he continues to pine for his first love, Tamako Kitashirakawa. However, with the two of them edging towards their future after high school, Mochizo might have to confess his feelings before he leaves to attend university in Tokyo. Tamako, meanwhile, starts to question her future as she suddenly realizes how small her plans seem when compared to those of her friends.

Tamako-love story- will be available for home video in 2017. For Sentai Filmworks’ latest announcements regarding this and other great titles, be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
