Tamako Market is an original anime series created by Kyoto Animation. The series itself started airing in January this year for a total of 12 episodes. The majority of the anime’s production worked on K-ON! and its subsequent sequels. The series also received a light novel adaptation in April by Mutsuki Ichinose.

Here is a synopsis of the anime from MAL:

Tamako knows just about everything there is to know about mochi, the traditional Japanese dessert treats. When she’s not attending her first year of high school, she even invents new flavors and varieties for Tama-ya, her family’s mochi shop. School and growing up, on the other hand, are some things that she’s still trying to find the right recipe for. But with the help of her best friends Kanna and Midori, two girls whose parents run businesses in the same shopping district, Tamako’s determined to make the best of things. It’s complicated though, especially when it comes to emotions and her relationship with her best boy friend Mochizou, whose family runs a rival mochi shop. And lately, Midori’s been feeling a little odd about her feelings towards Tamako as well. And what’s up with that strange bird fluttering around, the one that speaks fluent Japanese? It’s all very mysterious and overwhelming, but at least Tamako always has one thing she can count on: No matter if your day’s been good or bad, there’s certain to be something sugary and delicious waiting at the end of every adventure whenever you take a walk through Tamako Market!

The newly announced project of Tamako Market could be anything from a second season to a new film. Another Kyoto Animation series received a new project, Season 2 of Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! which was also revealed on the same day, and will air next season. When the new Tamako Market anime will air is currently unannounced.
