Synopsis:

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?

K-On!

K-On!

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!

It's by the same creators, but also has a little something different. Even though, in Tamako Market, the new, upbeat anime, has friends, main characture's crush, and even a talking bird. K-On deals more with friendship, music, and comedy.

Jynn04

they look alike, both have silly characters; not really a plot line. Very funny and cute! Mio and Tamako look a like alike; but Tamako acts like Yui! Though one is about a music group, the other is about a Market and a very strange bird. Both are still silly anime and I think of the other when I watch one. Definately recommend this is you've seen K-On!

Bronia

Both are very similar looking, and although Tamako Market is about love whereas K-On! is about friends, they're both moe slice of life. If you liked the yummy food in K-On! you'll be happy to see that food is even more important in Tamako Market. They've got distinct differences in settings and casts that make them enjoyably refreshing and complementary to each other while keeping them similar enough at the core that fans of either will likely love the other one.

AngelBeatsYui

Both slice of life animes with the same style of drawing. They both have their funny moments and even though Tamako Market has only just started, I think they will both have a sweet ending. Great storyline, great characters, just amazing!! These animes (to me ) are amazing and are highly recommended!!

Bradalee

Both of these series were created by KyoAni, so they have quite a bit in common, namely the cutesy character designs and adorable personalities they all have, including their sometimes overwhelming positivity. Both series also have similar comedy and lack any real focused plot to speak of. As with every KyoAni production the animation is beautiful, but unlike K-On! and their other works Tamako market comes off a feeling a bit bland in comparison. That said fans of one should like the other.

TropicalSwirl

If you like to watch adorable girls go about their lives and do what they are interested in with a passion, you should like both of these series. The cute factor is off the charts, though Tamako Market occasionally provides some more mature (not inappropriate, just older) themes and has some adult characters. Still, either is an enoyable watch that will make you smile and feel fuzzy and warm inside.

lyllyean

Both anime revolve around a group of cute girls, they both leave a light and happy impression on the watcher. Also the animation is very similar to each other.

I find both very enjoyable to watch.

sonicmoustache

Both of these anime are made by Kyoto Animation, so the art style is very very similar! Also, they are both slice of life anime with really cute characters and great character interaction! I watched Tamako Market before K-On! but I think they fit really well together if you like one or the other, no matter which you saw first!

A-Channel

A-Channel

Having been close friends for years, when young Tooru passes her entrance exam she immediately rushes to tell Run that they will be attending the same school. However, since Run is one year older, not only will the two girls be in different classes, but the air-headed second year has already made her own friends, Yuuko and Nagi. Now the small, volatile and overprotective Tooru must learn to share her best friend and get to know her new acquaintances, as the four girls make the most of each new day.

MaraRuizu

Both are school girl slice-of-life series with elements of friendship, romance, one-sided feelings and a lot of cuteness.

Etue

both have female leads that are generally up and fun with their lives. Both are different magnitudes of airheaded. While Run definetly is beyond saving Tamako is quite capable in most situations. Both series have a romantic sub-plot with some similar developments but are not the main thing in both shows. Both series use cute character designs to appeal to it's audience.

Hyou-ka: You Can't Escape

Hyou-ka: You Can't Escape

"If I don't have to do it, I won't. If I do have to do it, make it quick," is the basic principle by which energy conservationist Houtarou Oreki lives. But after his sister convinces him to join the Classics Club, Houtarou's life is turned upside down when he meets Chitanda, a perpetually-inquisitive girl who challenges the boy's easygoing existence. Intrigued by the slightest hint of a mystery afoot, Chitanda doesn't hesitate to pester the reluctant yet highly analytical Houtarou into satisfying her curiosity at every turn, no matter how small the problem. Alongside fellow members Satoshi and Ibara, the group tackles cases ranging from a self-locking classroom door, a strangely-popular library book, and even the shadowy history of the very club to which they belong!

Tamako reminds me very much of Chitanda Eru. They are both very energetic and positive characters. The way Tamako covers her mouth with her hands has the feel of the way Chitanda acts when she is curious.

lyllyean

Though both anime have a very different storyline, they also have a lot in commen. For example the energetic characters, they make the shows very enjoyable to watch. Also the both revolve around a small group of people, both in school and in their free time.

Both anime also have cute characters, which are also interresting and have their very own individual personallities.

Both anime will quickly draw you in the story.

Cardcaptor Sakura

Cardcaptor Sakura

Sakura Kinomoto never imagined that by opening a book in her father's library, she'd be responsible for releasing wild magic into the world, yet that's exactly what she did. Too powerful to be let loose on the world, the magical Clow cards were sealed away long ago by their creator, Clow Reed. But all is not lost, for the guardian beast, Keroberos, was sealed along with the cards! Can Sakura, with the help of Keroberos, retrieve the cards before they wreak havoc on the town?

MaraRuizu

Tamako Market was originally intended to be a full-blown magical girl series, which mostly shows in Dela.

Aside from that, these two share the slice-of-life , friendships and love elements. The casts are somewhat alike, with Tamako and Sakura having many similarities. (Such as being oblivious when it comes to people being in love with them.)

Both are cute and if you like one there is reason to try out the other.

Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!

Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!

Rikka Takanashi is a teenage girl who possesses the strongest ocular power known to man: the Tyrant’s Eye. She's currently locked in a fierce war with a shadowy organization, and the fate of the world may hang in the balance with each passing battle... or at least this is what she believes. In actuality, Rikka is merely a normal high school girl afflicted with chuunibyou syndrome, a "disease" that makes one prone to delusional flights of fancy. Meanwhile former chuunibyou sufferer Yuuta Togashi is enrolled at the same school, looking to put his embarrassing junior high exploits behind him. However, when Rikka discovers his past life as the "Dark Flame Master", she uses this to her advantage to include him in all of her wacky schemes! With Rikka’s zany behavior dragging him further and further from normalcy, Yuuta must try to pull her back into the real world – or risk getting sucked into hers!

anosora

They're both made by Kyoto Animation. They both have a mostly female cast and that only solo male character. They're both very light, peaceful, and slice of life animes  that entails the adventures of the main girl. Where as Chunibyo has more romance and chemistry between the male and female main cast, tamako market is more focused on daily life, there is one-sided romance though. The main girls are both very ditzy, careless, and cute and both animes give off similar girly charm.
