It was pretty good, although I would say that the first few minutes were kinda sad and lonely. I don't know why but I just can't think of them separating. I need them to stay together! D:

Now, I just have to wait for season 2 for more moeness. Aaaah the cute part was when Ritsu thinking the letter gave by Mio was a love letter. :D

Good to see that it didn't suck like all the K-ON! haters want to think it does.
What if the Hokey Pokey is what it is all about?

Okay. I'm confused. I picked up the R2 DVDs for volumes 6 & 7 of K-On!. According to them, episode 12 is the last episode in the series and the "Fuyu no Hi!" and "Live House!" episodes are "bangaihen" (extra chapters).

Well i liked the episode
i think it was a good bonus episode, showing the characters doing things on their own rather than always being in the group
they're more of individuals now

Kind of... relaxing (?) closure to the series. Somehow, Yui is like a unifying link of fluffiness and warmth. Her silly question seemed to bring them all together... it was cute. :D I don't know. The ending just made me feel warm inside, although nothing much happened in the episode...

In some ways I found it a suitable ending for the series, and in other ways I think I would've liked something with a little more punch. Well, loved the series anyway. :) Sad that it's over, of course.

I don't know if it's necessary to talk about the goods and bads of a show like K-ON. What I do know is that K-ON is about tea, cake, and cosplaying moeblobs playing music. And as far as these are concerned, this show sure did it's job and some more. I'm gonna overrate this with a 8/10.


Spot on! It was fun, light, fluffy entertainment with cute and engaging characters. It may have been generic and slow at times, without enough actual music practice and performance for my liking, but it was time well spent watching. The OP and ED were well sung and produced, as were the concert scenes. I never ceased to grin, and laughed a few times an episode. It wasn't profound, but it was profoundly likeable.

Episode rating - 4/5
Series rating - 8/10
Roll on Series 2!

Weird extra episode... definitely the first half missed the usual K-On! feel... I mean it felt so slice of life that I really doubted I was watching an Anime... Really it felt like I were watching a film of my grandpa when my aunt, uncle and mom were little... Really felt like anyone could do this... Really felt like watching something like that...

Ritsu's part was definitely cute... and we saw a boy!!!! Wahhh!!! the world is ending!!! Global Warming will completely engulf the planet and will make it a place inhabited! XD nah kidding... but seriously we got a pair of boys! for a short scene but we saw a pair of boys!!! Ritsu with no head band looks great! Prefer her without it... But looks so much like Yui so that sucks...

Yui!! Has nothing to do... or so looked like, but she really wanted to be together with the girls and well in the end she managed to be with them and actually make a meeting so that really show us that she's the glue of the group XD The nabe experiments sounds delicious... Oh and the Guitah part was funny too!

Azusa... she was cute, loved her because she coincidentally had to take care of a cat and actually called it Azu-nyan #2 XD And I thought she was afraid of cats... from now on she'll be more used to cosplay with the nekomimi!! I'm sure of that XD

Mio... Mio, she actually had a nice idea isolating herself to the seaside, to bad it was so windy and cold that she couldn't even write a single letter! In fact for a moment I thought she was going to write a sad/melancholic song, but I guess she didn't and just left it there and went back to think about it again... Oh by the way looks like she has problems with a computer so that's pretty much why she wrote that letter to Ritsu... that was really funny XD! Ritsu actually believed that a boy wrote her a letter XD.. But it was from Mio XD... I'd love to see a Ritsu + Mio doujin XD

And MUuGI! She really surprised me! Getting a job? That was really unexpected peps! never thought she would really wanted to work but I guess it's all about the need of being independent and do whatever she wants and the real reason why she worked there was because she wants her own money and wants to be a normal girl just like everyone else in the Club... I love that! She has grown so much... maybe she had that idea before but this definitely sealed it and showed us that she's a really good friend... and a nice Tea Maker XD

Loved the Anime... It's really hard to rate... It never had something substantial.. never had a real goal... Okay Realistic if you wanna but in the end it never had an meaning to me... But it really made a perfect job trying to represent a normal life of a high school girl band... the slice of life is really perfect... and the character growth is awesome too... if it were for me I'd give it a 7 but my happy easy going heart really enjoyed and felt completely glued to the anime, felt the passion and because of that I'll give it a 9/10

Green

this show was not funny at all. that ending was not an ending at all. the five elements of a storyline, that i learned in school contained:
beginning,
the rising action,
climax,
falling action,
and the resolution.

without any sort of problem there wasn't anything other than a beginning... no real obstacle that the group had to overcome.

in other words, imo this show was a 13-episode-continuously-boring-show-about-nothing, because nothing was accomplished in the end

Yes, think of the story like a "fish".
But not all stories are like that, which I think is good. I really liked K-ON and I would not say it's been time wasted or unfunny.

Well. These sort of series I usually avoid. And now I remember why. It was very cute and I did enjoy some parts but overall I found it quite boring and uneventful. If Mio wasn't such a cute character I would have dropped back at ep2. =_= Best part of this anime was the characters.. and the ending song.

Overall, I gave this series a 6/10.

Wow, I never thought I was gonna like this anime nor I know why I did. I mean, the characters are so-so (except for Mio - I really like her), the music is average (the ED song is amazing though), the art is good but I don't like the character designs, so many "moe moments" were really annoying and the story was uneventful.

But in the end, I loved watching K-ON!... Why? I don't know, I guess I just had fun watching it. I can count how many times I laughed in each episode. So this is gonna get a 8/10 from me.

As for this episode: Azusa with the cat really reminded me of myself when I brought a puppy home. I had no idea what to do so I just sat in the couch with it by my side and petted it. I spent my entire afternoon like that because I had no idea how to take care of a dog and the puppy followed me everywhere if I tried to get up.

It's no coincindence I didn't start really liking this series until Azusa joined, she's just the cutest. Especially when her and the cat mimiced each other.

Get's a harsh 7 for the weak first 1/2 of the series and I feel it would be the weakest of my 8's. But as i'm new to anime if I find I watch more 7's and there weaker than this I may reconsider.

Good episode, though 12 felt more like a season finale. Ritsu contemplating the "love letter" was the cutest she's been all season. I loved Mugi getting a job, and she has been my favorite character consistently throughout the season.

All-in-all, it's a good anime, but it's definitely not for everyone, especially if you don't like "cute girls doing cute things." I didn't find it to be all that funny, but it was still enjoyable. I think all the characters are likable, and I loved the moe moments. 7/10.

This episode felt like filler. The last episode was a better ending. While I much prefer music focused anime like Beck or Nodame Cantabile this one was cute & easy to enjoy.

I actually thought this was one of the better episodes of the series, and that it was the best way to end it. It did have that "Someday in the Rain" feel to it as well.

I never expected Mugi to take a job at a fast food chain. With all her assets, you'd think she'd never have to work at all.


See, that's the thing with Mugi: she's rich as anything, but the simple life (at least relative to her) fascinates her. When her friends visit her vacation homes, she wants to keep it as normal as possible, but apparently, she's unable to express to her servants what that entails, so they leave luxuries behind that she didn't want. She (in the anime) didn't know about haggling, presumably because she could afford any price they might ask, and seems delighted at the chance to try it out. There's a chapter in vol. 3 of the manga that shows more. So yeah, it's not about whether she could afford to live without working; she just wants to.

Azusa got off easy, considering a certain other girl we all know and love who likes to pet kitties...

Ooh, I thought she seemed worried and distracted. Ra-bu re-ta!

Not the best episode to end the season, it was okay. Previous one was amazing on the other hand.

Now for the whole season.
The series imo started out a bit boring at first, but the characters grew on me, especially Azunyan, Mio and Yui. Yui was a bit too airheaded for my taste, but she was really cute most of the time. My favorite has to be Azunyan, she was talented, cute, caring and overall a nice person, and I really liked that she didn't brag with being better than Yui. She was also nice when she said that they shouldn't perform without Yui. Mio is a close second though, I often felt like she was the main character.
The others were all very fun as well, I really liked the relationship between Yui and Ui, they were cute together :) My only problem was with Sawako, she started nice and kind, but turned out to be rather annoying. Her whole character wasn't needed imo.
My problem with the series however, was that I felt like the main concept of making music together wasn't really the main thing we saw. It was more about the tea drinking and cake eating. I'm not saying it was bad, but it felt a bit repetitive after a while. They also reused some jokes a bit too much.
Other thing was the unnecessary drama between Mio and Ritsu. I think it was too forced.
The songs were not as good as the OP and ED :/

I hope the second season will make up for the mistakes this season had, I would really like to give a better score for the series. For now this season gets a 8/10 from me. Off to the OVA and second season!

A very relaxing, slow-paced peek into the Keions lives. Wasn't too bad.

As for the anime overall I gotta say it's between a 7 or 8 out of 10. Say what you want about this series, but it's a well done SOL.

After slowpoke-ing it up and only just getting round to watching the series I have to say I really enjoyed it!

The ED is definitely a favourite and very very catchy!

It'd be nice to be able to squeeze the second series in before the subs come out for the film in a week!

This episode had a weird atmosphere to it. Everyone was a little down, but then there was Yui to bring them all together again. The "love letter" Ritsu thought she received were actually lyrics from Mio. xD

Overall a very relaxing and funny series. 8/10.

This episode was a really nice extra episode. Ritsu was flustered with the 'love lyrics' that Mio gave to her in the mail which she thought was a love letter LOL. Mio went to the seashore to think of new lyrics. Yui was just lazing around as usual. xD Tsumugi working part-time at a fast-food restaurant. Azusa was so cute when she was looking after Azunyan # 2 LOL <3 Loved it when they all got together towards the end of the episode.

Overall the series was a very enjoyable slice-of-life Anime. Very light and lively. The characters are unique in their own way. Yui is such an airhead but she's so damn lovable, very caring and all. Mio is the more mature one but I love the fact that she gets scared so easily. Ritsu's the tomboy that's usually the troublemaker, although she does have her serious moments haha. Love the fact that Tsumugi comes from a rich family and the way she treats the members with tea is so nice. Azusa is by far my favourite though. As soon as I saw her first appearance, I started loving K-ON! even more. xD She's so awesome and quite mature for her age. :D Azunyan ftw!

Giving K-ON! an 8/10 Time for Season 2 and eventually the movie. :D

Funny because I was thinking the exact same thing! Haha

But yes a very good bonus episode! Cool seeing each of them on their own. Favourite part was when Yui and Ritsu were putting their hands on each others' faces lol

And K-On exceeded my expectations! I'm looking forward to the next season!
