The obvious recurring problem with this series is that there's not enough Yui and Ritsu, KyotoAni Goddesses of Rock.

Best guessing based on the manga and how they've been structuring the show, I'd say they could do 18 episodes. I doubt there is enough material in the two volumes for more than that, and I don't know how much is done on any later material since the second volume came out just a month or two before the anime started.

Judging by the stucture, they might have only 13 episodes, but if I'm reading the manga breaks verse episodes correctly, a fitting ending would be around a 14th or 15th episode...assuming they don't skip anything (though some of it might be repeatitive from earlier episodes). The remaining material in volume two could be left for a second season when they actually have enough material for a volume 3 (which I can guess would be the ending).

That happens with practically every show that is based on an ongoing manga though.

True. Is it any surprise why I choose to keep silent whenever someone says such-and-such anime sucks (it being based off an on-going LN or manga series)?

Interesting that you would mention that series because I happened to have dropped that after episode 1.
Well, that is an example of a series where the first episode is a (80%) COMPLETE red herring. Go back and watch it episodes 2 onwards. Maybe in this case it's not the cover, but you should also not judge a book by its prologue

After that, you may want to rethink your ep. 1 == all watching strategy. Yes, Gungrave is that good. Yes, the ep1 is that bad.

This may be the most immediately popular of all the big KyoAni shows. The OP and ED zoomed to the upper reaches of the charts, and on 2channel they are already over 178,000 posts, which is incredible for seven episodes. There's no way KyoAni has "shot themselves in the foot" with this one, at least commercially.

But I'm afraid it's running out of steam for me. Heartwarming from time to time, incredibly moe, but not as funny as Lucky Star (for me) or as interesting as Suzumiya Haruhi. The Christmas episode seemed pretty limp, as far as I was concerned.

Maybe I still think KyoAni lost something important when they let Yamakan go.

Not that I'm going to stop watching or anything, but I'm finding several other shows more enjoyable: Eden, Phantom, Ristorante Paradiso, Pandora Hearts, Cross Game. And the OVAs Denpateki na Kanojo and Yurumates (which is the funniest recent show for me).

Better. Much more concise. I could start pointing out the answers to your questions, but since you've made the mistake of allowing me to get on your nerves, I think it's best you sleep it off for today. You'll probably feel better off next time, and I've got other things to do anyway.

And don't worry, it takes a lot for me to get really pissed. It's not like I neg repped people in this thread for disagreeing with me (The brilliance of the Animesuki forum).

Moreover, lets wait for the next chapter of this series to unfold, as I do indeed got other things that need taking care of.

And both Ascaloth and Reckoner could use some sleep at this point.
Well I took up your offer, amen.

I guess I could give it a second shot, but I'll have to wait until I finish my other backlogged series.

Running out of steam is the thing. To me, K-On's popularity seems to be resting solely on the fact that it is done by KyoAni. They can't bank on that forever.

We've seen Mio tutor Yui a little, that's all, but she wasn't doing anything musical herself, just talking about chords.

With any band, you would expect some kind of interaction at a musical level as well as at a verbal level. Musicians naturally use their instruments to "talk" to one another, but ISTM there is no sense of any of these girls being musically inclined. Not even anyone strumming their instrument and getting some kind of reaction from the others such as nodding or tapping their feet.

I think they've had more chemistry doing AIR GUITAR solos then much anything else.

Go figure.

I wasn't really complaining about the lack of music in the show, more responding to comments made by others. The rest of the show is very entertaining it doesn't need to be music all the time for me.

I never saw the lack of art in Hidamari Sketch as a sign of weakness. If there is not enough music in K-On, people should probably go somewhere else. Seriously, do people think that there will be music playing in every single episode? Yui is still trying to get the hang of her guitar!

Let's be honest here. This might be a show about a highschool rock band, but it's really driven by the humorous interactions of the characters. The band thing is just a backdrop and perhaps a source for the occasional plot, joke, or reference. Don't expect this show to be about how they make it big, and all the hard times and difficulties they have in learning about themselves as musicians.

That said. I agree that this episode kinda abandoned said backdrop. It was cute and sweet, for sure. However, I'd rather have another episode like 6 where the band had a more prominent role.

Er, in-universe? I don't think so. The K-On club is still trying to find its bearings. Also, a good guitarist alone doesn't make a good band. And I don't mean basic competence. To me, the K-On club would be a place for the girls to chill from school, although it certainly wouldn't hurt Tsumugi to be in a great band. It helps the family business.

Besides, from the next ep on, there will be a newcomer. So, it's a club, not a band, unless you have "team manager" in mind.

Well, I've seen some pretty shitty acts get signed onto Ozzfest, so I'm sure the ultimate dream of playing a gig at Budokan wouldn't seem too far behind that...

Yeap, I was asking around about that later. Turn out, I mistook きのり as a kanji character so I was stuck at 焼<bwuh?> where it actually is 焼きのり for a while.
