Synopsis

Hirasawa Yui, a young, carefree girl entering high school, has her imagination instantly captured when she sees a poster advertising the 'Light Music Club.' Being the carefree girl that she is, she quickly signs up. However, Yui has a problem, she is unable to play an instrument.

When Yui goes to the clubroom to explain, she's greeted by the other members: Ritsu, Mio and Tsumugi. Although disheartened at Yui's lack of musical know-how, they still try to convince her to stay to prevent the club's disbandment. After playing Yui a short piece which re-ignites her imagination, they succeed in keeping their new member and guitarist.

Along with the tasks of school and homework, Yui begins to learn the guitar with the help of the other band members, experiencing many mishaps along the way. However, with the school-festival drawing near and Yui getting stuck with her practice, will the Light Music Club be ready in time for their debut?

K-ON is one of the most polarizing series in existence. On one hand you have people who are vigilantly against the series and anything else with a similar cute or "moe" style, and on the other hand you have probably one of the most dedicated otaku fanbases, spending thousands upon thousands of yen on merchandise, CDs, and so on. It's impossible to deny how much of a presence K-ON has had in Japan since the first season of the anime aired.

What you have here is a fairly typical 4-koma manga about a group of high school girls in a music club and all the resulting read more

A gaggle of high school girls sitting around eating cake and drinking tea sounds like the world's most unbearably dull thing ever, and it probably is, but going through the motions of daily life isn't half bad, but just watching it is pointless none the less to those who want more.

STORY: ...I'm honestly at a loss here, how does one grade a story, when there isn't a story at all. K-ON! is just that, no story, no conflict, no evil organizations to defeat, no romance, nothing. I challenge anyone to think of a better phrase to describe K-ON! than, "Pure sweet pointlessness."

As of the 2 volumes I have read, K-ON! has been very enjoyable, but it is not without flaws. The art is, much like the show, beautiful; the characters and environments really pop out. Nevertheless, it suffers from a mediocre story and boring story arcs. This does not make it unreadable, though. Long story short, if you want more K-ON!, read this.
