K-On! - Requests for new threads

Since the K-On! forum is limited (only Mods and Admin can create new threads), this thread serves as a way to request a new thread to be created.

Please post here if you wish to request a new K-On! thread. Please bear in mind that we will only accept reasonable requests, we wish to maintain the focus within the forum and cut down on the noise (so no pointless threads cluttering up the place).

Don't forget that you may still post in existing threads as usual, the only restriction is that you may not create new threads within this particular forum.

Yay for a new K-On! subforum! ^.^

Anyways, could we possibly have a thread on music terminology and stuff related to the atmosphere of K-On!, for instance, the type of guitar Yui bought, the nature of Mio using a guitar pick to play bass, Jimi Hendrix, etc.? Maybe call it a "K-On! Culture" thread?

That is indeed interesting. However, to provide a moderate and solid lead, we would need an appropriate opening post.
If anyone can submit their opening post, with the basis (notably, everyone's instruments), please give it a shot here.

If we're talking about instruments, I made it a point to do an instrument feature in my Episode 2 RIUVA article here. Note, this is based on personal research, and may not be 100% accurate.

While we're on about new threads, I'm sure it would be this series if any that could work with the Lucky Star "4-girl" character poll, yes?

We are waaaayyyyy to early to consider such thread. May be a few more episodes and then.... I know I've yet warm up to our main heroine. May be once she starts to play that guitar....

edit: Ascaloth, that seems to be what Kristen is asking for though I'm not 100% certain. If you could submit that portion along with those picture in the thread, we could create the thread.

Okay, here we go....

Spoiler for tl;dr:


You may also want to consider using this image as a whole, or divided into their respective parts.

I think you may have misunderstood the request.

What we are looking for is a suitable opening post for a K-On! Culture or a K-On! Tools of the Trade (for want of a better title) thread.

There is nothing wrong with what you posted, it's the sort of thing that would be ideal for such threads but it doesn't make a good opening post. We need something that explains the purpose of the thread (which is still a bit vague at the moment).

We can still incorporate a portion of your post once Kristen or anyone else can give us a better idea on how the intended discussion need to take a shape. I'm also thinking about stealing some of your images from your blog for the opening post.

I can give it a shot, I guess... I'm bad at writing big official looking posts. XD

Spoiler for K-On! Tools of the Trade:


Yeah, I'm bad at writing these types of things. Someone else would be better. >.<

@Kristen: I think the problem of new thread is not how the 1st post is written, but what would we do if there is no cultural or reference is mentioned in later chapters.

We can put the actual musical instrument (like Ascaloth mentioned) and the actual towns where K-on were based on. But then what else? Car model? Train model? School motto (the hare and turtle...)? We don't want a new thread to die too quick =/

I don't know if it's too early to ask, but can we get a thread on Yui's sister Ui?

We could compare: SHnY vs LS vs K-On!
Ex: (show + character)

Kyou -> Kyon -> Kagami -> Mio

Haruhi + Tsuruya = Ritsu

It is way too early: Ui has a very minimal screentime, and aside of being shown as a mature and reliable little sister, there isn't much to discuss about.

For all intents and purposes, we do not create a thread for this kind of discussion: it doesn't bring anything new, especially this kind of "comments" (not discussion) were already present in the general discussion thread.
And if we start allowing that, it will certainly go out of control with totally unrelated series and the like (to begin with, if we remove the very few similarities between the characters of these shows, they just don't have anything in common, be it character or plot wise).

Have we seen enough of the teacher that she can get her own thread?

K-On! - Requests for new threads

Since the Music thread seems to be focused more around album sales...

Spoiler for Sample opening post, could use editing:

Interesting. An attempt to use one of the anime's main themes. Created.

Just for fun.

Nothing against it, please make a nice looking opening post for said discussion and I'll move it as first post of the new thread.
