Everyone knows Hikasa Yoko provided the vocals for "Don't be Lazy" but did the other 3 seiyuu played the instruments for the song? I wonder whose names are credited in the cd contents.

Just curious... It would be awesome if they really did.

Most people are probably buying it because of Mio.

Surprisingly i like both K-ON Op and ED (its hard for me to like and OP\ED of a more mainstream anime) so those are good rankings : >

Irrational?
I don't see this VA going out to buy clothes out of frustration after not being recognized by some dude and then crying about it on her blog
The act itself wasn't important, people simply hate her for no good reason. I'd call that pretty irrational.

Is that One Piece song (#1) by a famous band or something?

TVXQ is a Korean idol band (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TVXQ ). Japanese elderly ladies are crazy about them.
That's hilarious :D
