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

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

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

I'm not a huge fan of the "moe wave," if you want to call it, that has over-saturated the anime market for good part of the last five years. Personally, I don't really wish to encourage a lack of creativity in Japanese studios to continue with the on-going "cute girls going cute things" mentality, but I have to admit as much as I' might dislike or completely forgo these moe series, something about K-ON!! (and its prequel) keep me entertained.

There's one thing you're going to get from K-ON!! and that is: cute high school girls doing cute things. Its not in any way groundbreaking or read more

Recommendations

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.
They are both about some girls forming a school band, have some music, all kind of different girls and stuff.

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.
Story centers around a group of girls with their daily life
-both is all about friends and friendship
-both are of comedy & school life
-both has lovely light-hearted art and character designs
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
Both anime have the "school club" theme and have girls playing as the main role.
