I agree as well though I have to give it a 9/10 instead of 10/10 because Azu-nyan wasn't in the show sooner.

I just finished watching this series and I must say it was frankly quite good. On the other hand, I think I'd probably have enjoyed it a lot more if it wasn't for the fact that I kept mistaking it for another series called Working!!

You know, it really felt like I was watching Light Music Club Working!!. It's actually a bit of a problem I'm having lately with series, since SoRaNoWoTo was also something that kept reminding me of Working!!, and all those military girls being moeblobs screamed "Military Working!!"

Oh well, a nice series nonetheless. I recommend it to people looking for something cute and who enjoy music and/or typical japanese comedy style.

Nicely done! The voices fit the characters well

The story was good and balanced. The story included sideclub activities but did not stray off the main point, so it was not boring.

The soundtracks fit well throughout the series~

I really enjoyed the series This has become one of my favourite! XD

The only thing that was lacking is the length of the series, maybe because it was adapted from the manga?

o.o Long dead thread... Well.

This was the first anime I've seen in about a year and a half, and I must say, it made me come back to my senses :P It's really relaxing, and moeee~ <3 Music wouldn't stop impressing me

I give it a 8.5/10 because there were a few repetitive episodes.

tl;dr: The show reminds the pessimistic me to be carefree about life.

Gawd. Exactly one month since someone posted. Sorry that I'm necromancing, but I really want to talk about my thoughts of the over impression I have so far. As of now, having only to catch up with the first episode of Season Two, I'd say I'm really glad I decided to pick up this anime.

At first look, it was just another cutesy, slice-of-life moe-fest that would just be entirely silly in particular (especially when I wasn't that into music before watching this) (and especially when someone claimed this as a more inferior version of Clannad), but man, this show has became something else for me, particularly after the much-hated Episode 11.

Now, I'm probably going to sound biased here, but I think this is one of the best things that ever happened to anime.

Though this show itself is not the most contributory in terms of the slice-of-life genre (or what I read as the 4-koma comedy genre?), it did leave quite a significant impact on anime itself and its loyal followers, presumably Satoshi Kon. Ironically, Satoshi's comment on the current state of anime contributed to the good impression this show gave me, since he made me remembered that things needn't be so grim all the time, just because the rest of the world is. Sure, there are much more poetic anime out there that talks about the rotting state of the world, but I felt that this show served as one of those reminders about not taking life itself too seriously (like how the Light Music Club itself is not that serious of a club, but just a bunch of girls having a good time with each other).

Taking away the fanservice, taking away the moe, however, I found several rather edgy (not necessarily dark) subliminal aspects of K-On honey-coated with cake and tea. For example, Mio's struggle to get over her disturbing phobias to be stronger for her friends, or how the EDs of the show were presented with a sense of rebellion. But these just made the show that much better for me, adding more depth to the innocent nature of the show.

But I'm not gonna blab about this anymore, so...

Animation Quality:
7 (Not the most beautiful animation in the world, but cutesy animation is cute)
Voice Actors:
6 (Nothing particularly impressive, but not bad either; love Mio's smooth voice, of course)
Script:
7 (Not Code Geass, not FMA:B, just something fun to enjoy, like your life )
Soundtrack:
8 (Edgy songs mixed into innocent fluffy ones? Total fun)
Editing:
(Not really knowledgeable about this, so I'll skip)
Enjoyment:
9 (Enjoyed it? How about loved it?)
Emotional Involvement:
9 (It's more on a personal level for me)

Average = 7.8 (Gawd, this is tough; so much love for the show, but on a professional level, it's still a 7 :P).

Do I have to do this?

I watched K-ON! at first because it was Comedy and Music...and I thought...hey! I should try it out. But after the first 15 minutes....I was almost instantly hooked! Why? Yui. I didn't know K-ON! was from Kyoto Animation.

I wasn't surprised when I learned that K-ON! is from Kyoto Animation. It had its legacy which I noticed.

So here we go...

Animation Quality: 9
Kyoto Animation has been budgeting. But heck...Animation is still as great.
Voice Actors: 10
Every actor's voice fit each character. I'd be very sad if K-ON!! dubbed would ruin that perfect voicing that suit each character.
Script: 10
I always liked Slice-of-life. Taking Haruhi's ENOZ, the elements of slice-of-like Lucky Star, and some dramatic elements of Clannad into one, K-ON's plot and script is that. With a lil Mugi and Sawa-chan insinuated fanservice of course. But why 10? I mean others said 6 or less...

It's because it's pointless comparing the K-ON! plot to everything else. It's SOL with music, and although many of the cirumstances seemed ridiculously fantastic, I think we can all agree it still works out to the plot's advantage.

Soundtrack: 10
I'm gonna kill anyone who didn't vote 10. XD With so many great songs, from dramatic ones to nonsensical ones, light pop to heavy metal, who the hell would vote for 9 or less? Unless it was Japanese? XD

Editing: 8
I didn't like how KyoAni's just pushing the anime to only season 2 (no season 3), skipping some of the good parts of the manga. But I didn't read the manga...so disregard this.

Enjoyment: 10
Can I make it 20?

Emotional Involvement:10
Can I make it 20? I mean c'mon...this is about real life?! The songs really can connect to us if you know the lyrics.

Overall Rating: 9.5
Estimate: 10!
Heheh.

I will not be biased. I will not be biased. I will not be biased.

tl;dr: K-On!, despite its flaws, was full of joy, hopes, dreams, and of course, moe and cuteness. K-On!! was too much cuteness, forgoing those very hopes and dreams portrayed in the first season.

Oh, for those close-minded biased K-On obsessives who has no appreciation for a good story - please don't read on. In other words, if you already think my tl;dr statement was total nonsense, please don't read on.

Seeing that I have almost caught up with the rest of the K-On fans, finally having to watch Episode 22 just the other day, and with the show coming to a concluding end (and seeing how I've been bitching about the show's bad points for the past few days), I feel that it's only justifying that I make a more quality sum-up of my feelings for the show... and what this show meant for me.

Let's face it - I couldn't have hated K-On entirely, or I wouldn't have watched it in the first place. I was just an amateur anime fan, only watching the best stuff out there (FMA:B, Code Geass, Clannad), so to accept the moe-blob that is K-On... that was something really challenging for me. Why did I first watch it? Because it was getting more popular, and I was trying to cram as many popular anime series as possible at the time. That's it. Not because I read the manga, or that I fell in love with the cutesy stuff in it. I remember the first time my friend introduced me to it. It was the performance scene from Episode 6 of Season One. I didn't remember Mio, or anyone from that band, for that matter. If anything, it reminded me of S-Club Seven and Lizzie McGuire. The song wasn't that memorable. Don't say "lazy" didn't mean that much for me, and Cagayake! GIRLS was even less remarkable.

And then one day, I watched Episode 1. Then Episode 2. There was a certain feeling of attraction that got me to continue watching. No, not Mio (yet). All of them - Mio, Ritsu, Yui, Tsumugi - they all looked like very fun characters to me (though still incomparable to Clannad characters). How they talked about music and the instruments was just lovely. I loved Yui's character development. Believe it or not, I was very passionate about her becoming smarter, more mature.

Camp. I love Episode 4. It was when I fell in love with Mio. No, not because of her squirming. I fell in love with her reminiscing about them writing on the board their dream to go to the Budokan, and how she then imagined them actually being there. And then I knew it. I was going to follow these four girls on this epic journey all the way through until they reach there, to Budokan. Of course, you know later on that Season Two emphasized nothing on that, so, moving on.

The beginning of Episode 6 was beautiful. "This Is It." The first performance they've been waiting for. It was epic for a coming-of-age journey like this. And just when Mio was finally gonna metamorphosed into the butterfly form nobody is recognizing her for today, they pulled the shameless plug of fanservice, reducing her to moe-blob #1. *pinches self* Moving on.

Christmas was cute. Yui was a good sister. Freshmen was good. Mio singing was win. Yet, you know, up till this point, between Episode 7 and 8, there wasn't anything as beautiful as Episode 6. I would probably have lost interest soon. Then came Episode 9. Before watching this episode, I heard a lot of stuff about Azusa taking up Mio's screentime. I thought it would happen in Season One, but when I saw how sweet Mio was to Azusa like a big sister... oh gawd, love, love, love. I think that was really the first time I respected Mio as a character (I always felt she should be treated better as a woman in the show, but I digress). Then there was Azusa's dark decision. That music playing when Azusa was trying to decide between choosing the Keion Club and choosing a better band was hauntingly creepy. And when Mio became the one to tell Azusa why she had stayed with the band instead of joining a better band, the Mio love grew. Sure, it was kinda lame a reason in the realistic world, but it was sweet. I was hooked back on.

Pinch, Episode 11... Oh gawd, the first time the show has depth, the distortion to what the show is really about, the Pandora Box opened. Yeah. Lots of people hated this. But you know, for the first time, I got to see the edge in both Ritsu and Mio, how they became angry. How they became human. So, even though it might have ruined the consistency of the show... I really appreciated KyoAni for making this. Ritsu wasn't technically 'bitchy' (she's a cute, innocent drummer, c'mon), and it made me respected Mio more.

Episode 12, the concluding episode. Very sweet second part. Felt like crying as Yui ran to Mio's singing. Mio taking charge of the situation, making the tough decision for the group - very cool. Yui summing up her life and finally developed her personality - couldn't have been done better. Lots of love for Yui from the bandmates, all of them distracted when Yui's not there (Mio's epic-face x3). Everything was perfect (or at least as good as this show could get).

Wait, it's the end? Oh, there's a second season. Yeah, it was initially good news for me. A sequel to this perfect ending? I couldn't wait. I wanted to tear open the present and hug on it like Mio's bolster.

Then, after four episodes, I was left asking, "What happened? Where's the head-whacking, fear-fighting Akiyama Mio that grew up?" Aside from that, I felt that Azusa's worries about being left alone in the club was introduced way too soon (in a season containing 24 episodes compared to the much shorter span of 14 in Season One). Moreover, it wasn't done as well as Episode 22 (the not-wanting-to-give-them-the-chocolate storyline was much more emotional), but since it's Episode 1, I couldn't criticize (like I said, introduced way too early). And Yui seems to have matured a little bit more, too, as a senior… even though still as soft and fluffy. She began to think more about her friends, what is right and what is wrong. Really nice stuff there, and it pains me to say she develops much better in the long run than Mio.

Episode 3, I had to admit, was silly for Ritsu. But it was thanks to this episode that I got to see Ritsu's practical and realistic side - the major difference between her and Yui (note how Ritsu reacts to Yui's antics in this episode). Otherwise, It was just her being confused about her hopes and dreams. But for Mio... oh gawd, it makes the bass so much more beautiful as an instrument for me. Also, notice how there were moments when the bandmates would give love for Ritsu ("No one can replace Ritsu!" in Pinch) and Yui (the love for Yui was more than apparent in Episode 12/S1), but no one would really stop and say something like, "That is wonderful," "Bass is perfect for Mio," or "I love Mio's bass-playing" until Episode 3/S2?

And then Episode 4 began the end to the remaining aspect of Mio's maturity. I didn't know what to feel about her after that. My world was turned upside down. But slowly, I tried and accept Mio being in-touch with the fluffy side of her (after all, she is still a girl, even if mature). But when it is all said at the end of the day, I still felt her moeness could've been written much better.

Take Episode 7 for example. Though Yui and Tsumugi did try and care, you could feel a lack of concern about such a creepy crime like stalking happening to Mio. Moving on. Then it has Mio doing a tea party for her own fan club, but they never really served to explain what it meant for Mio to have people cheering for her (you're really glad Megumi likes you - why? because you were insecure? because no one liked you?), what it meant for Megumi to have Mio doing this for her (both club presidents merely reflected how they were glad to see the fanclub members having fun - no mention of Mio whatsoever), what it meant for the members of the fanclub (are they obsessed stalkers? why do they like Mio in the first place?). All there was to this episode was that there is a fan club, Mio is destined to be moe forever, and that the fanclub members have fun playing tea party. That's it.

Perhaps I'm looking too deep into this. It's just a show not to be taken seriously, right? Like Michael Bay's Transformers, or Roland Emmerich's 2012, right? Alright, fine. There were a few subtle depth in regards to Mio appreciating her years with her friends (when she was eating her Mio bread, and after she watched the slideshow with the fan club). Not emphasized very well, but fine, whatever.

But what about Ritsu? And Tsumugi? Most of the screentime and developments were given to Azusa and Yui, entirely forgoing the development for the rest of the cast. I might be tripping, but I believe Tsumugi was made for the sole purpose of having Yuri in the show (ever since the start of S1) like how Mio was turned into a moe-blob in S2. Otherwise, she would at least have some development going on for her. Or maybe the writers had something planned for her initially, what with the setup of her rich background and her eccentricity, but then like with Mio, they realized that they would earn more money just focusing on Tsumugi's yuriness, Mio's moeness, Ritsu's tomboyishness, Ui's good-girl-ness, and Jun's spoiled-girl-ness (that's the closest thing I could come up for Jun…). Just a thought thrown out there.

Speaking of them, Jun is, to be honest, a really pointless character to be added on. Out of all the characters, she is even less developed in S2 than Mio (with Tsumugi sadly being even less developed than Jun throughout the entire show). As for Ui, nothing about her sisterhood with Yui was emphasized (I miss the Christmas episode with her putting that star on top with Yui already). She and Jun were just there to get Azusa to think about her relationship with HTT ("Hey, Azusa, are you going to make chocolates for your seniors?" "Hey, Azusa, the Keion Club must be really fun, huh?") Two characters added to accompany Azusa so that she wouldn't be alone in the end, creating a sort of virtual happiness (or an excuse) for Azusa when the other members of HTT leave Sakura High. Maybe I'm still tripping.

Episode 8. Why couldn't the rest of the Mio episodes be like this non-Mio episode that ironically gives more depth to Mio (or at least, her friendship with Ritsu) than any other episode, ever? For the first time since E12/S1, I felt like crying watching the show, when listening to the BGM played during Mio's flashback. This is the kind of feeling I should be feeling, at the most, in between every three episodes, irregardless of whom being under the spotlight. Why is it that whenever after I watched an episode from Season One, I'd feel so pumped up I'd brag about it, when most episode of Season Two feels like a filler?

Nevertheless, on Yui's part, it was very well-developed again, how she had grown a lot since kindergarten, how she fought to make the best choice for her future (something quite admirable, to be honest, if you consider her airheadedness). And she was even more developed in Episode 9, with her kindheartedly helping out that old lady down her street. It was a really sweet episode (and would really make the show better if it becomes the formula for every episode). And of course, she magically passes her exam with her god-given skills. Moving on.

Ritsu not sending another request again in Episode 11? Yay for development for Ritsu. And when some development for her finally came three episodes later in Episode 14, it was in the form of Futa, with Tsumugi complimenting Ritsu's homosexuality… Yeah… Was I suppose to take this show seriously again, or is homosexuality a joke now?

And the list goes on and on. It's either generally always about Azusa selfishly worrying about her future or Yui becoming smarter or kinder (and in Episode 17's case, more responsible). U&I, regardless of my bitterness for Mio not being able to write a new song (lol), is a fantastic song, and it is probably the most heartfelt thing you could find in this season. This is the reason why the tears of Episode 20, due to a lack of a proper build-up, meant nothing to me. It was like watching Transformers 2 all over again, when Optimus' death was plain ol' boring because of poor scripting and character development.

Why am I comparing K-On to those things? Because, in its essence, no matter how cutesy it gets, it is still a story. Cheetah Girls, S-Club Seven, Transformers, Power Rangers - no matter how lame they get, Season/Movie One (the animated series in Transformers' case) always connects with the human emotions in our hearts (be it extreme happiness, warmness, or sadness), along with the themes and ideas the writers tried and connect with the rest of humanity. I'm not saying that K-On should be as deep as Code Geass. On the contrary, it should be kept light and fluffy, but as you could see from above, the first season has a more purposeful nature to each episode than the second.

It is one thing to be fluffy while reminding you the reason for the fluffiness - it's another thing to be pointlessly light and fluffy. Whether be it to express the love for the club and your friends, or to overcome a stage fright (E6/S1, IMO, did this with more charm compared to E19/S2, what with Mio's own little special moment as she took in the experience of having people applauding for her for the first time), or to find the essential meaning of what the Keion Club stands for, Season One does it a whole lot better than Two.

I'd especially compare K-On to The Cheetah Girls because the first movie of TCGs and the first season of K-On mostly revolved round the girls' hopes and dreams, where as the sequel just have them doing pointless things from there, for both cases, which is something not supposed to happen (because sequels are meant to overpower their predecessors). I assume this is due to the length of Season Two. Because the story is more widespread across 24 episodes, the resulting character development is exponentially shrunk when placed above an enlarged surface.

Overall, Season Two has its moments - but it's not the cute little girl with dreams of becoming a pop star when she grows up. S2 is more like a little girl dreaming of living in a castle with a prince someday, something obviously impractical and having a lesser meaning when compared to a pop-star career.

I'll just make adjustment to two of my rankings:

Animation Quality:
7
Voice Actors:
6
Script:
7
Soundtrack:
8
Enjoyment:
7.5 (I really enjoyed S1 a lot. Wouldn't have kept on watching if it wasn't as heartwarming as it is. Didn't enjoy myself that much from S2 onwards. The cutesy stuff was aimless in this season.)
Emotional Involvement:
6 (To be honest, K-On never became a musical inspiration for me. In terms of whether it was emotionally in-touch with me, whether it filled me with joy, tears, and whatever the heart is capable of interacting with, S1 gets points from me for effort. S2 has a much lesser emotional involvement, being cute with ignorance, hence making the full score a 6.)

Average:
7.5, mostly because of K-On S1, of course.

Edit:
Seems like Episode 23 is finally subbed by Frostii. Will it change my mind, giving me a feeling closer to those I felt watching Season One? Will I shed a tear for HTT's departure? We shall find out.

Well, I can't give a massive interesting review like some people here, but I'm giving it a personal five.

I have watched nearly everything by KyoAni so I was very excited about this, the first episode I watched I wasn't particularly impressed, and I kept watching and at about episode seven I realized this was nothing special. There was nothing interesting about it, at all, it was just like Lucky Star except less quirky and funny. I did watch all of season 1 though, in hopes that something interesting would happen.

Sorry, just my taste (and I don't plan on watching the second season).

Um... this thread is for the FIRST season of K-On! ... just so people are clear.

The SECOND season of K-On! does not yet have an Overall Impressions thread because the season has two more episodes to go. Just clarifying...

^^And to further clarify the point, the thread has been renamed to emphasize the first season (if the one exclamation point gets overlooked).

Sorry for climbing up into the bandwagon for so late.

Picked this show out of curiosity (wondering why it's still a huge phenomenon, as well as one friend on my Facebook flist sometimes talking about it and cosplaying as Azusa), watched... and got pretty much hooked.

K-On! made me feel better after every episode, the kind of show that pulls you away from the real world (and politicians) and into a place where angst does not exist, a round of tea and pastries serves as an icebreaker, and a band that hasn't been touched by any record executive's finger yet provides loads of laughs.

At the moment, 8/10 on my rating scale. Best stress-reliever since Azumanga Daioh and Marimite. Also, it reinvigorated my interest in listening to 90's rock music, both foreign and local.

I would give K-ON! a 10/10 because I have enjoyed this series a lot in the beginning with Yui and the rest of the characters. The music is impressive, the characters were entertaining, and I laugh at every single moment Yui tries really hard to learn how to play guitar. I don't usually watch a lot of slice of life anime but this was really good and I would recommend as least to watch.
