Tamako Market

Between unspoken and unrequited love, mysterious happenstance, and the day-to-day affairs of a busy market, life is rarely dull in the Bunny Mountain Shopping Village - especially after Tamako, the happy-go-lucky mochi-maker's daughter, finds a talking exotic bird on a mission! Having traveled a great distance, the creature now seeks a worthy bride for his land's prince - but where in this corner of rural Japan can such a thing be found? Already busy trying to keep the shopping district alive and hanging out with her friends in Baton Club, Tamako can't afford to be distracted by the plucky bird - yet the scoundrel seems to have taken a liking to her and keeps following her around! How will Tamako cope with this visitor intruding on her life?

Tamako Market and Hana-saku Iroha are both slice-of-life stories about girls who are heirs to traditional Japanese businesses. Both heroines are unfailingly cheerful, slightly naive, and aim to enjoy life to the fullest. While Tamako Market is admittedly more cutesy, I think that fans of either show would enjoy the other.

Though the beginning episodes of both of these series make them seem like dramas, both eventually settle into a more episodic slice-of-life routine. As such, they feel much less fluffy and meaningless than most slice-of-life series. If you liked the feel-good atmosphere or hard-earned friendships in either of these series, you'd probably like the other.

Both animes picture the lifestyles of schoolgirls in the countryside, instead of in the big city. Although Hana-Saku Iroha is more dynamic and Non Non Biyori more slow-paced, I think if you have a liking to the one, you'll be interested in the other as well.

Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha.

Inari Fushimi is a middle school girl who's never had a requited love, since she's a shy, clumsy and not very bright. One day, she witnesses her crush Kouji giving a letter to her classmate Akemi. Shocked and saddened, Inari rushes to a shrine, where the goddess Uka-no-Mitama-no-Kami appears to her. As thanks for saving a fox pup, as well as out of pity for her plight, the goddess grants Inari the power to shape-shift.

Both these series focus on a girl in her early teens going through some growing pains. Romance is an element in both, but there is also a strong emphasis on relations with other characters (friends and mentors), who are in turn presented with considerable depth. Both series are visually appealing with frequent depiction of traditional Japanese architecture and costume as elements in a modern setting. Inari relies on supernatural elements, while Hana-Saka Iroha is much more realistic, but both tell a good story well. If you liked one, I recommend trying the other.
