In spring 2009, K-On! introduced viewers to five high school friends who form their own "unique" band called Houkago Tea-Time (After School Tea-Time). Music featured in the series became so extremely popular with fans that a rhythm-type K-on! game, K-On! Houkago Live!!, was released in Japan for Sony PSP in 2010.
