TheAkiba: ''Tamako market is my second favorite anime of the 2013 season. It is already 8 episodes in and so far it has been great. They said that Tamako market was supposed to be the next K-ON! but in my opinion it has surpassed K-ON! by miles. The character designs are excellent and they were done by Yukiko Horiguchi. She does an excellent job at creating cute yet casual looking characters which suits the characters personalities very nicely. The overall style of the show does bare some similarities to K-ON! but due to the setting of the show it separates itself from K-ON! in that aspect.''
