Alright, So K-ON! is the Japanese word for “Light Music Club” and that is exactly what this series is about. Most of the time it revolves around 4 high school students that all choose to join the light music club. There is Mugi on keyboard, Mio on bass, Ritsu on drums and Yui our main character on the guitar!
They all join the light music club to save it from being abolished and soon enough they are all great friends jamming some tunes, Problem is Yui cant play a musical instrument. The club begs Yui to stay and after some sweets and tea, she agrees.
The club then gets a teacher supervisor and she is a mentally broken down lady obsessed with the sole task of dressing the girls in different costumes. They also get part time jobs together and buy Yui a guitar, turns out Mugi-chan’s father owns the music shop and Yui gets the guitar that she has her eyes set on. The light music club then gives their sensational group of instruments a name, and after some bickering (and tea of course) they decide upon the name After-School Tea Time!!!
This is such a FUN Show, it made me laugh on so many occasions and the general feel of this anime is so laid-back. This is the kind of series’ that you just enjoy with some friends and popcorn! The animation is absolutely sensational and vibrant, The plot line is so feel-good and it actually has a very satisfying ending. The Music, do not even get me started on the music it so indescribably awesome!! The closing song is so catchy that I have gone back over and over again just to watch it!
K-ON! Is a thirteen episode series’ and it has some OVA’s at the end as well, Its a short, sweet and lovable show. Cant get enough of K-ON! well either can I and we are both in luck, The second series’ was announced in Japan not too long ago! So go flippin’ watch this series.
