Tamako Market follows the cheerful Tamako Kitashirakawa, the mochi-loving daughter of a mochi shopkeeper in the shopping district.

Comment: I recommend Tamako Market to people who like simple innocent anime, like K-on. This one had some supernatural stuff like talking bird, Dera. But Dera is my favourite, first I was annoyed with that bird attitude, now I just love it, without him would be boring.

Movie: From Up on Poppy Hill

Language: Japanese

Released:2011

The setting is Yokohama in 1963, and the film-maker lovingly bring to life the bustling seaside town, with its misty harbor, sun-drenched gardens, shops and markets, and some of the most mouthwatering Japanese home-cooking set to film. The story centers on an innocent romance beginning to bud between Umi and Shun, two high school kids caught up in the changing times. Japan is picking itself up from the devastation of World War II and preparing to host the 1964 Olympics – and the mood is one of both optimism and conflict as the young generation struggles to throw off the shackles of a troubled past. While the children work together to save a dilapidated Meiji era club house from demolition, their tentative relationship begins to blossom. But – in an unexpected twist that parallels what the country itself is facing – a buried secret from their past emerges to cast a shadow on the future and pull them apart.

Comment: It was really beautiful and innocent love story and other adventures, I really enjoyed. Ghibli Studio never disappoints me.
