Over the few years or so, it’s been increasingly apparent that watching anything associated with moe is to be treated with the same sort of caution as doing yoga, or making origami. Generally you’d do all three in the privacy of your own room, preferably with the lights dimed down and curtains tightly shut. (I am speaking of course, mainly for guys).

Yes there is much shame to be had in admitting you enjoy watching K-On!!, because who in their right mind would enjoy a plotless moeblob slice-of-life show over say… the testosterone filled battle epic TTGL? Certainly no one would admit to such an atrocious read more

Things are sometimes more than they seem.

For any individual, there always are surprises to be found in the long walk of life. Things that initially appear flavorless and dull, but reveal themselves to be something much more colorful. These are the kinds of experiences that impact a person and make them feel something of significance. They may make them laugh or cry, but in the end these are the kinds of stories that hold a special place in one's heart. The second season of K-ON is, for me (and for many), this very experience.

K-ON has always been a very polarizing series, one which has read more

I often hear K-ON as a senseless waste of time with its lack of development and waste of music, but there's more than meets the eye when it comes to this anime. Although it may have had a weak introduction with the weak first season, the second definitely makes up for it. You rarely get an anime such as this when it comes to Slice of Life in general, and anime as a whole. "Cute girls doing cute things" has taken a huge boost recently, but it's often a big miss, as they often try to bombard the cuteness and ruin the anime quality as read more

Under the glaring eyes of the public masses, the K-On series is predominantly a show about five moe girls who do nothing but drink tea and eat cakes. While this is certainly true, there's something profound that lies beyond the reach of naked eye.

Please bear with me here as I explain why people view this show so negatively — I'll make it worth your while.

Most people overlook K-On due to its lack of substance and proper character development. Unfortunately, this is true — the story contains little to no significant conflicts that lead to a noticeable change in most, if not any, of the characters. read more

Recommendations

Anime: Lucky☆Star
Both shows are similar in a MOE + slice of life sort of way. In comparison K-On is slightly more mature while Lucky Star is more cartoon-ish and relies on the cute factor a whole lot more. Both shows share the same target audience.

Same art style with cute girls and lots of fun. Story is similar: there is no stressfull moments in these shows. You just watch them to relax. Main characters and their relationships with other people are same

Anime: Azumanga Daioh
K-ON!! is an anime that clearly takes a lot of inspiration from Azumanga Daioh and resemble eachother in a lot of ways. While Azumanga is a lot more silly and K-ON is a lot more realistic, there's lots for fans of either series to enjoy. Fun, lighthearted slice of life with plenty of hilarious comedy between the characters.

Anime: Girls und Panzer
people are roccomending Girls und Panzer for the first season of K-ON.. so I put the second, because there is Azusa in the cover (5-5 people, hehe)

okay, let's start it... why I recomend K-ON to Girls und Panzer?

first, the main character... Yui and Miho are seems to be so much clumsy, but Miho is more clever and Yui is more talented
second, the group... in the case of Girls und Panzer, the school... they start the competition from the very beginning, step by step they hardly pushed their effort to become the greatest of all...
third, item that the girls are  read more
