One of the series that a lot of folks were hoping would get a Blu-ray release when it first came out back in June 2013 was that of the thirteen episode run Tari Tari from PA Works. Frankly, PA Works demands high definition releases due to the quality of their animation. For various reasons, likely including licensing agreements to not compete with the Japanese releases, a Blu-ray could not be produced. Now that’s changing as Sentai Filmworks has announced that it will be a part of their November slate with a Blu-ray release for the property.
The series was originally broadcast in the summer of 2012 with PA Works handling the animation while Masakazu Hashimoto directed it. An original anime work, it did spawn a single collected manga volume as well to support the broadcast.
Plot concept: The last year of high school is always a time of both looking forward and looking back. Ahead 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?
