Many people have found themselves wondering what truly qualifies as something exemplary. For some, this kind of quality is attributed to titles with deep themes and complex storytelling, and for others it may be something as subjective as what's "fun". What can be agreed by everybody though, is that no matter what the nature of a title is, when the inherent quality is up there it’s going to shine through in the story. It’s going to make the audience feel something of significance and it’s going to leave them awed and speechless when the credits roll.

And when the credits roll in the K-ON movie, you read more

“But, O, how bitter a thing it is to look into happiness through another man’s eyes!”
– Shakespeare, As You Like It

Dear Reader,

By the end of this humble review, the case may be that I will find myself skewered by countless pitchforks and torched at the stake by those who bear disdain towards K-ON! for forging what is igniting the burning passion in my heart for all to see. In spite of this inevitable dreary destiny, I shall boldly write on and write on I shall ‘till kingdom come for friend or foe to witness. So without further ado, before I enrage the angry mob read more

For anyone who wants to know K-On! is my favorite animated series of all time, and having recently just rewatched the movie I feel it is appropriate to try and explain just why I love it (K-On! Movie) so much.

Story: 10
Okay, so I get that it's a slice of life movie and there isn't much to the story, but I think that, while it doesn't start where the series ended, it was known by viewers of the series that HTT would be going to abroad and I feel as if all the misadventures the gang gets into with the sushi place, impromptu concert, and follow read more

I bought a 4k TV just to watch this movie
Even though I will only watch it once.
I just threw away 3000 dollars
and the pain of losing that money
stabbed me right through my heart.
My relative broke my 4k TV, I broke his ass apart.
My brother called the police
And I got arrested and sentenced to life.

And that's how a great movie like K-On! changed my life.

Story: (10/10)
The story is focused on the Light Music Club Members as they plan a trip to London for their graduation trip. The movie is set 1 week before the events of K-On!! Episode 24.

Anime: Love Live! The School Idol Movie
The girls run away abroad, make a concert and then close out of school (at least Nico, Nozomi & Eri).

Anime: Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu
Both movies show off Kyoto Animation's full potential. Both movies also benefit from a generous run time, wonderful visuals and animation and of course that little bit of Kyoani magic that fans have come to love.

Anime: Tamako Love Story
K-On! is made by the same director (Naoko Yamada), chief character designer (Yukiko Horiguchi), scenario (Reiko Yoshida), the same studio (Kyoto Animation), and depicts a similar story of high-school teenagers in a slice-of-life setting, exploring the same theme of friendship and maturing.

There are major differences, though. K-On! Movie was a great fan movie, whereas Tamako Love Story is a great individual film (and not just a spin-off from the TV series Tamako Market). Tamako Love Story involves a story of love, lost love, family, death, neighborhood community, and overcoming of hardship, besides friendship and maturing. While K-On! focuses on the bright sides of  read more

Anime: Tari Tari
Both of these wonderfully animated series share a desire in wanting to create a school activity club. They have their own uniqueness and potential, in which is related to their passion for music. In some certain aspects, the main characters of Tari Tari sometimes reminds me of the main characters from K-ON! If you're not into stories that can cause your emotions to flip in angst and suspense; this meaningful, enjoyable, comedic story is definitely for you!

Anime: Azumanga Daioh
Very similar kind of aura and atmosphere to K-On, obviously Azumanga came first and is an absolute classic. Same type of characters and engaging episodes.
