I was expecting him to give it a 1 or 1.5 since he's generally not a fan of this type of show.

The Asura Cryin' review was a bit unexpected in the amount of bashing. You know he has issues with a show if he breaks out the pictures of cute animals. I figured a score of 1, but I suppose head bashing is the equivalent.

Since his tastes are somewhat different from mine, I don't use his reviews to decide what to watch. I do like to see his thoughts on some shows for a different perspective. And I do somewhat agree with his review for K-On. Compared to other anime and similar anime, the first episode is pretty average.

That being said, I like this type of show and the music aspect is a nice plus. It's always a good thing to have a show like this every season, so K-On is definitely on my spring 2009 watch list.

OK, whatever, I rest my case, if people want to worship KyoAni, by looking at half drawn stills and calling them art that we unfortunate plebians do not understand, I'll stick to other threads.

Wow. I feel so alone. I actually like the character design here (as well as for Munto) more compared to KyoAni's more well-known shows (i.e. Haruhi, Clannad, etc); the characters in this show look less "bug-eyed" which always used to appall me. I use the term 'like' there very loosely though. Heh.

Yes. I know. You're complaining about art that was reused from a fairly old OVA series.

It's not the stills. Haruhi's stills could be crap too. It's the way it's animated. Also the PRETTY SCENERY.

Very few studios today are as good at animation as KyoAni. Also, people put too much stock into art quality today anyway for some reason.

When I watched this anime for the first time, it was more than cute characters and an interesting plot for me. It was a reflection of what I wanted to do in life. I still want to become a guitarist/singer in Japan.

Unless it is going to churn out something like Claymore (with both art and storyline), I would rather stick to low end animation. LIKE THE UPCOMING MAZINGER!

Besides, it is how the artwork that inspire the H-doujinshis that count right?

About the current ANN rankings, as Malkuth stated, that small of a sampling is going to give you that type of result for Bayesian estimates. It's like asking one person coming out of a Republican polling place who he's going to vote for President and then using that result to predict the eventual winner. Kaioshin, are you trying to game the system by having all the people in this thread to go there and perfect vote it up to the top?

To be fair, the designs of mentioned shows were mimicking the original ones (Key's style for Clannad, Kanon and Air, and Noizi Itoh's for Haruhi). If Little Busters gets animated, you will see a departure from the usual Key's style because it is like that in the game too.

The eyes are still enormous though.

This depends on your reaction to the deleted scenes from Yakin Byoutou, if you found them repulsive, then yes you are a certified innocent and untainted mind

Heck just learning to play the guitar would be enough for me. And I suck at Guitar Hero.

KyoAni adds their spin on the designs if you compare the other versions from different studios of the shows that they've produced (Kanon, Air, even FMP). Toei's Kanon isn't less or more faithful to the original, just different.

I've always wondered this but i always forget to ask after i watch an anime episode.

From what i interpret, sports teams and clubs are all classified as "clubs".

So are japanese kids limited to only joining one club? Does that mean they can;t play multiple sports in high school? That seems kind of weak....

I (completely) guess that modest high schooler in Japan often want to choose one club and devoted their spare time to their club. I don't think the school would restrict you if you really want to do more than one (but club leader probably will try to persuade you to drop one so you can concentrate more in their club).

Then i remember read it somewhere that more members allows you to have more funds from schools, so maybe there are strict rules against the case when group of students go around and sign up in 10 clubs just so they have more numbers

That's probably why the girl in K-on can only join one club and needs 4 members or their clubs will be closed down (space+fund to other clubs)

I'll not deny that. Their designs from Munto to Clannad and K-on have a little "je-ne-sais-quoi" that screams, "this is KyoAni".

Now on K-On, I would like to see how they will deliver the part with the teacher. I am satisfied with how they did it with Krauser. In the 4koma, it got a chuckle from me at most.

You guys are really hyping up the teacher. I'll be disappointed if she turns out to be anything but a rock goddess.

I would like to remind you all that this thread is solely destined for the anime adaption of K-On!. If you have some expectations regarding the adaptation of scenes from the 4koma manga which aren't shown yet, please rather use the manga thread for the time being (certainly not as good as our usual "expectations for spoiled people" thread, but better than nothing).

For the moment, the thread follows the usual spoiler rules, and any spoiler from the manga will be deleted.
