It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members. However, for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsugumi, Yui and the gang will juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!
A photograph is a mysterious force that creates magical moments the instant the shutter closes and allows people’s hearts to connect. For the new girl in town, Fuu Sawatari, this is more than a saying but a way of life as she spends her days quietly attempting to capture those special instances on film and use them to bring others joy. Along with her friends – and her beloved camera – Fuu reminisces about her father, begins to contemplate where her future lies and wonders whether she can capture more of the mysterious Tamayura light bubbles in her photos filled with warmth and friendship.
K-On and Tamayura first felt similar to me with their cast - quirky young high school girls building their friendships over food, tea, and random outings. They also both have that moe feeling, which is laid on much thicker in K-On. Where K-On deals with making music Tamayura focuses on photography. Two great slice-of-life titles which will leave you warm inside!
In a moment of pure warmth and happiness, it is said that children of the light, known as Tamayura, will appear. Fuu Sawatari is a young girl who loves taking photographs the same way that her beloved father did while he was alive. Having recently moved to the town her family frequently visited when she was younger, Fuu enjoys her life to the fullest alongside her friends Kaoru, Norie and Maon. Whether the gang have a sleepover, chase a furry cat around town, or simply enjoy a delicious lunch, Fuu always has her camera in hand in the hopes of finally capturing the illusive Tamayura on film.
Both have a group of girls doing things without any real going on plot. Both series are ligth hearted and have quirky characters. The colourtemplate is quite similar.
Tamayura however is far more slow paced with less comedic moments. It's slower paced nature makes it less likely to be appreciated by those who like more high spirited slice of lives and therefore it might be a good idea to skip this one.
K-on! is a genre standard which many slice of life get compared to and even if only for ''otaku-cred'' should probably be at least checked out if you liked Tamayura.
Tamayura is noted to be a ''healing'' anime rather than a comedy like K-on! So if you're looking for some healing it might be worth checking out, but if you're looking for comedy it's probably better to look elsewhere.
In today's technology-driven society, everything has to move with the times, and magic is no exception. As spells are cast with various magic "codes", made up of binary digits, a computer becomes just as useful to the aspiring mage as a magic wand. One such would-be wizard is Koyomi Morishita, a girl who suffers from a bizarre inability to cast more than one type of spell. No matter how hard she concentrates she can only use code to do one thing: summon metal wash basins, directly above people's heads more often than not! Hoping to improve her versatility, she becomes a student of voluptuous expert witch Misa Anehara. However, with malevolent "daemons" - monsters summoned by unscrupulous magic wielders - appearing at every turn, Koyomi will need all the help she can get!
Both of these shows have an adorable cast that are best describe as being cute, warm, fuzzy, slightly clusmy and ditzy (in other words, "moe" if you want an otaku-term for it ^^). They both leave you with a fuzzy feel-good kind of emotion, and although they might not be the most epic-awesomest show ever, they will certainly bring a cute smile to your face simply because the cast are just ADORABLE~~!! XD
Yui, Yukari and Yuzuko have just entered high school, eager to have a great time. They quickly become the sole members of the Data Processing Club, using the computers frequently to look up information and find interesting videos. Whether they're debating the merits of sauce on curry bread, trying to determine how some women manage to have huge breasts or dealing with the sweltering heat, these three friends will also manage to have fun in the process.
Both are tremendously funny anime about cute girls doing cute things. And their clubs! Both have oodles of yuri subtext and straight man/funny man humor. They are different enough that they aren't carbon copies of each other, but both rely on random humor and the oddness of its cast to make the viewer laugh. If you like one, you should try out the other.
