Tamako Market episode 1 discussion

First things first, I hate the bird. Dera is annoying and obnoxious. He selfishly acts on his own and makes Anko cry, but that's more her fault because of her childish nature. Tamako however seems pretty much unfazed by everything he does. Dera needs to quickly lose the high and mighty attitude before I can even think of liking him, but even if he is just a perverted bird, he's only doing this because he cares about his prince. That's still no excuse for causing everyone trouble. He doesn't deserve Tamako's love and affection.

Other than the bird, I really enjoyed the episode. The premise is simple for now. Dera is looking for a bride for his prince and Tamako is the main candidate. It's more like an arranged marriage as Tamako shouldn't have any interest in a boy she knows nothing about even if he is really kind. I wonder why he's going to such great lengths to get a bride when there would be  plenty of girls available. Maybe to prevent a forced marriage or something like that.

Down with that damned bird! We need more Tamako and Anko! :D

Whether you and "that guy" like it or not, the bird is the gimmick character of the show. His creepiness is what keeps the show from being just another Slice of Life show, which I don't mind but it's necessary to keep things fresh.

Now I must prepare for episode 2 and be appalled by the bird further.

I will respect how he got Tamako to be so cute, but he doesn't deserve to be the center.

I feel your pain but like it or not, he's Tamako's mascot. If you want more Tamako cuteness, you have to deal with it as well, which is easier said than done based on your reactions.

I do think he'll improve his personality. Possibly...
