And this is awesome. I hope it comes out in time to be hand in hand with the English manga due out later this year.

If they were going to license the manga, I would think they would license the anime as well. This series I plan on picking up.

I though this company wasn't interested in picking up new releases if they were taking their time with their current releases.

I wonder if they are going to dub the songs and if they do, how they will sound like.

You can always turn the dub off and listen to the original Japanese soundtrack with subtitles.

not really surprised that they were going to get it since they have the other two popular Kyoto Animation anime Haruhi and Lucky Star. I always wanted to check this series out maybe I'll look into buying it after I preview the first couple episodes.

The first two episodes can be a bit slow (setting up the situation). Pick a couple of random later episodes or even from the second season for a better feel -- it won't spoil much. Otherwise, its a bit like judging the Nanoha series on the first two episodes of the first season, not really representative.

I usually find dubs irrelevant, but if they translate the songs, I'm curious enough to at least check them out.

What are the odds that it gets a Blu-ray release?

Aye... I might be inclined to go for my first Blu-ray if they offered it. As far as dubbing, I'm typically not a dub fan but it would be academically interesting if they took a whack at redubbing the songs in English.

Lack of a Japanese track would be an insta-fail but I doubt Bandai would do that.

I think Bang-Zoom will be the front runners:

(1) if Bandai decides to dub this series
and
(2) if Bang Zoom is still working on dubs by the time they release this series.

It means no fandubs anymore, but it could also mean official dubs.

After the company's panel, Bandai Entertainment Marketing Director Robert Napton clarified with ANN that the release format of K-ON! ó whether it will be Blu-ray Disc, DVD, or both ó has not been decided yet. The panel announced a cast for Bandai Entertainment's K-ON! marketing videos, but Napton emphasized that no announcement has been made about an English dubbing cast, or whether there will be a dubbing. The cast for the K-ON! marketing videos is Cristina Vee as Mio, Karri Shirou as Yui, "Kix" as Tsumugi, and "Briana" as Ritsu."


The cast for the K-ON! marketing videos (Promos)

Cristina Vee as Mio
FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO HEAR K-ON ENDING IN ENGLISH By Cristina Vee

Spoiler for Other by Cristina:


Karri Shirou as Yui


Kix as Tsumugi

Briana as Ritsu.

Kix and Briana??? No last names??? CímonÖ This isnít the 80s, and you arenít Prince. No word on who will play Azusa yet that Iím aware of.

Hm, I'm not very fond of how Shirou tries to emulate the Japanese way the song was originally sung. Like, if the original song had heavily accented Engrish, Shirou tries to recreate that sound. It's not a very flattering sound to fluent English speakers' ears, methinks, at least not to mine.

Other than that, I'm very excited for the DVDs and manga. I've seen some sources claiming that Bandai has rights for both DVDs and Blurays for K-ON, though that could just be counting the chickens before the eggs hatch.

This is awesome news. Just last night I was searching when K-On will get licensed. I've been reading that it would be unlikely and such. So I'm happy now

These are my thoughts exactly on a Blu ray release.

I also quite like Christina Vee's singing voice, Karri Shirou is pretty nice too.
