book cover

Fantasy Novel

Notes Sequel of Tamayura OAV (4 eps OAV).
Classification -
Synopsis For her first year of high school, Fu Sawatari moves to Takehara, a scenic old town near Hiroshima, on the Inland Sea. Her father, who has passed away, grew up in Takehara. She loves taking photographs with her father's old film camera, a Rollei 35S. The story follows her and the friends who gather around her as she comes to love her new home. Episode 1 is a prequel to the OAV, and tells of the events between the death of Fu's father and their move to Takehara (which is where the OAV starts). Episode 2 begins with a very brief synopsis of the events told in the OAV, then continues where the OAV left off.
Review A girl whose father recently died takes up her camera again, and her mother decides to move them back to to her father's hometown. A well-produced and well-meaning show, but the first episode could have done with a bit more substance and less tearful emoting from a minor character. A series about looking and photographing can work well as an anime, and this one scrapes over the bar.

In later episodes there is less emphasis on Fuu's photographic activities and a bit more on gentle comedy and slice-of life stuff involving the other characters. Overall, it's quite engaging.
