@Marcus H.

I already know most of that, but what I really meant was the meaning of them (a.k.a. do the given and family names have any tangible meaning behind them?).

Thanks for your answer, though.

Oh really?

Then explain the following:

Akiyama - "autumn mountain"

Source: http://genealogy.familyeducation.com...origin/akiyama

Kotobuki - "good fortune"

Source: http://www.uniquejapan.com/productvi...15701&spid=102

Nakano - "central field"

Source: http://genealogy.familyeducation.com...-origin/nakano

I just want to see if you or anyone else can do better that I what I did in my due diligence...

I wasn't thinking of the literal translations.
I guess we're not thinking in the same wavelength.

Yamanaka is "middle/center of the mountain".
Hirasawa is "flat swamp", i think.
Tainaka is "middle of a rice field town".

Azusa is "catalpa tree".
Tsumugi is "unbleached silk".
Mio is "waterway".
Yui is "simple".
Ritsu is "rhythm".
Ui is "sadness/melancholy".

EDIT: Source: clicky

Now those are the answers that I am looking for...

Those are very nice literal translations.

I would be more happy to see the source of them, if any.

"Hirasawa" is somewhat fitting for Yui... Their personal names are all pretty fitting too.

Does anyone know anything about Kakifly, the series creator? He/she is as mysterious as Kagami Yoshimizu; not even ANN has any info on him/her. For starters, of course, does anyone have any idea of Kakifly's gender?

@Moe Moe Kyun: Means nothing but the kind of words some maids will use for their customers.

@nyan: It's a nickname: Haru-nyan, Tsuru-nyan XD

If I understand it correctly, "nyan" is the Japanese equivalence of the English "meow".

It is taking the "nya" (cat meow sound) and mixing it with "-chan" (diminutive cute honorific) == "-nyan"

The main characters in K-ON attend an all girls' school, right?

Also, there really isn't much of an English equivalent to "Moe Moe Kyun". It's like a "cute sound", but the kind of cute that is associated with the Moe meme. It's like a childlike thing to say, only not really (because no children actually say that). The best English equivalent might be like a squeal.

Is this anime seinen or not?

I think this a stupid question since its answer is too obvious but what puzzled me that some idiots trolled me pointing K-On as seinen.

The manga is listed as seinen but who cares? It isn't really definable by demographic.

More accurately it's comedy and in the case of the manga, 4-koma.
