Recalling Tari Tari’s third episode in which a moe musical festival was being prepared, success arrives with this fourth coming – the characters perform their best, making for a ridiculous, yet commendable showcase.
Once again, another flashback is had – this series has essentially been revolving around flashbacks, yet they’ve been presented in a manner which introduces an issue or relevant item of background information for the later developments, making for quite an overall streamlined and successful implementation.
As of yet, there’s been a blast from the fictional 2-D past of Wankana, Konatsu, Taichi, and now it’s time to see the history of the ample bishoujo, Sawa. Easing into a memory, the scene starts off when Sawa’s was a still loli – she’s seen to be having a lighthearted outing with her guardian, particularly taking a liking to a horse who is present amongst them as well. Sawa climbs onto the horse, which subsequently dashes off in a spontaneous enthusiasm – and as our loli experiences this natural thrill, she comes to love it.
This is seemingly the birth of Sawa’s dream of riding four-legged beasts.
Enjoying the interruption of the opening sequence, the series then continues onward from present time once more – starting not too far from where the episode prior departed. Taichi, Sawa, and Konatsu are beginning to practice their vocals for the musical showcase – all the while, the two old geezers from no more than a chapter back charge in to make a beat, yet don’t receive much of a welcoming. Konatsu tells them to cease and desist – however, the elderly pair insist their “pro” status.
They’re not lying, although their third member is the fellow off somewhere harassing the less endowed bishoujo of the series. Despite being characters without much serious grunge in their artistic portrayal, our main character crew are quite violent as one will come to see – they put up a rather exaggerated fight against the stalker, yet the stalker finally determines communication is the ideal manner of sharing a message. He informs the girl he’s been hounding for the last episode and a half that he knew her mother.
Fast forwarding into the forest, the two old men are reunited with their stalker comrade – now all having a miniature picnic with the three girls. The three band members reminisce upon their good times with Wankana’s mother – who turns out to have also been a part of their musical escapade, providing assistance in composing themes.
Same place, different characters, a conflict of interest occurs in which the busty bishoujo is being asked by her male companion to redirect her time for the elderly – although the stacked heroine becomes upset over this as she’s quite eager to have a concert of her own, putting herself first and foremost as most would, yet there’s not much behind the matter as all ultimately goes her favor.
Whilst Sawa’s searching for a stage for the performance of her and friends, devastation strikes like lightning as someone comes and steals the last available stage – yet also as immediate as a bolt of light, her less fortunate friend, Wankana, saves the day. Wankaka reserved the stage for her friends – and before the vibrations begin, there’s a final exchange of good tidings between the generic highschoolers and senile old men. However, there’s also a final intermission of conversation – the elderly ask Wankaka to come over for a moment.
Having heard she quit music, they give her some encouragement in the opposite direction – as well as a letter left behind by her mother. And so, the other characters go on to perform on-stage for the beach festival – managing to completely embarrass themselves, but achieve “success” in the process.
Currently, the main element to keep aware of is Wankana – she’s of course in a state of confusion, met with a mixture of feelings, and the direction to follow as result is fairly obvious, although the route to get there and beyond will be quite an entertaining ride.
