K-On!! – midseason impressions

“The strawberry is the pinnacle of a cake! Its heart! Its soul!”

Demon teddy is watching...

K-On!! has passed its mid-way point and to celebrate, it offered its loyal viewers another annoying-sounding OP, but also a really awesome ED, which is probably my favourite out of the 3 K-On EDs in the series.

Badass I tell you. BADASS!

So what’s happened? Nothing. Any character developments? Maybe. Is this a bad thing? Probaby not. K-On!(!) has always stuck to its slice-of-life roots, and to expect any sort of narrative in this series is like waiting for a taxi in the middle of a desert.

K-On: teaching kids it's ok to talk to strangers πŸ˜€

However I think director Naoko decided to give more screentime to the ‘less popular’ characters, like Ui and Azu-nyan. I also really enjoyed the attention Mugi and Ricchan have been receiving in season 2. The spotlight shouldn’t always be kept on Yui and Mio πŸ˜›

Jelly Mugi

K-On!! is obviously filled with comedy, and I have personally found this season pretty funny so far. While episodes often have this filler-feel to them, they do have their lol-worthy moments. The best have got to be when Mugi steals Mio’s strawberry, and when Ricchan swallows the receipt for Sawa-chan’s guitar. Gold.

... and then Yui discovered the meaning of life

From now on K-On!! can go anywhere. However, wherever Naoko wants to to take K-On!!, whether it chooses to follow some specific direction, or continues it’s filler-filled style, I’m sure viewers will be content.

OP: I’m sorry, I just don’t like it….

ED: best K-On ED ever.

Now who hasn't tried this before?

    Jelly Mugi was hilarious! Eating her eyebrows……….The new OP is more chipmunk yui but at least the ED is great.

    I thought season 1 had a very loose narrative and I was hoping to see if season 2 would further their goal of becoming a popular band. Even though it’s not the case I’m enjoying the slice of life comedy and this episode with Mugi was really great.
