Plot Summary: Konatsu Miyamoto was rejected to sing with the other members of her chorus club by the teacher because she was missing “something special.” Being her last year in high school, she felt like doing something crazy: She quit. In the place of her former club, Konatsu comes up with the idea to make a new chorus club, inviting the people around her to join. With dreams in each of the member’s hearts, they live out their high school lives.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SENTAI FILMWORKS LICENSES “TARI TARI”
HOUSTON, July 2, 2012— Sometimes you lose your voice, and sometimes you find it with a little help from Sentai Filmworks’ latest acquisition, Tari Tari. Direction and series composition by Masakzu Hashimoto (Professor Layton & the Eternal Diva) and featuring character designs by Kanami Sekiguchi (Canaan) and music by Shiroh Hamaguchi (Ah! My Goddess, Girls und Panzer).
The last year of high school is always a time of both looking forward and looking back. Before of you lives the future, alternately bright and scary. Behind you lie memories, both happy and sad. And somehow, in the course of one year, you have to reconcile those two and decide where your life is going to go. For Wakana Sakai, who had started studying music, it’s time to face the tragedy that made her abandon that path. For Sawa Okita, it’s about her dreams of riding professionally. And for Konatsu Miyamoto, it’s about bringing her friends together through the magic of song. Can something as simple as the formation of a chorus club really help solve the hurts and pangs that come with growing up? Can music bring people together despite their differences? Join in the chorus, pick up the rhythm and find out as Wakana, Sawa, Konatsu and their friends discover the answers and learn how to grow up through the medium of song in TARI TARI!
Tari Tari will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow next year.
