I imagine the girls of Death Devil thought the same thing. Except the show portrays them as having grown up and become respectable young women. We know that Sawako shreds harder than Eddie Van Halen, and that even Norimi plays better than Yui or Azusa (She talks about how she and Sawako were constantly trying to one-up the other on guitar.) And yet, the only time Death Devil ever gets back together, it's to play at the wedding of one of their old school chums . . . and they have to embarrass Sawako into taking part.

Also note how Azusa is seemingly unaffected by the collective emotional breakdown the third-years have in Episode 20. She says things like "Don't be selfish. Don't cry like little kids," and "It was an honor playing with you all." Her voice doesn't even waver. It's like she's already accepted that HTT ends when the third-years graduate and go on to college. Her mind is probably on how to continue to club. Either get Ui and Jun to join, or she'll fall back on her Plan B and join the Jazz Club for her own third year.

K-On to this date still remains the only Kyoani adapted series that isn't Kadokawa or Key. So I guess I'm wondering how they decided to animate K-On...I had heard somewhere that Naoko Yamada and her team had to fight very hard for K-On to be greenlighted as otherwise Kyoani were going to animate another serious drama series after Clannad After Story, and Yamada thought it would be good to animate something more 'casual'(The first season of K-On did indeed had an kind of Indie look).
They didn't even want K-On! in the first place.

What Yamada and her crew fought for, however, was how they were going to adapt it (K-On! being a fanservice-y Seinen manga). Yamada wanted none of that, and suggested that they make it accessible to even children.

i cant imagine K-ON being a fanservice manga XD

so...yeah...I dont want HTT to end like that...i just hope something happens in the next 6 eps...

You all know how Yui has technically "no choice" but to pursue music all the way. >=)

Okay... if I understand what you're asking????? o.O
Yes, the anime series K-On! will complete at the end of this season in Japan. There's about 5 more episodes to go.

The 4-koma K-On! is supposedly ending at the same time based on an announcement in the 4-koma (4 panel comic) itself (which is serialized in a Japanese magazine).

The manga collections (currently 3 volumes and a 4th due out) are made up of the chapters serialized in the magazine. Therefore, it would be 4 volumes much like Azumanga Daioh is only 4 volumes when it was first released.

Right, now it *doesn't* mean it isn't possible we will have a sequel or a spin-off - perhaps a series of OVAs. But right this instant nothing has been announced.

K-On Season 2 comes in 9 volumes (DVD's) with 3 episodes each. Volume 3 is just episodes 7-9 of season 2

That's Japan for you. Anime is really just an infomercial for stupidly overpriced merchandise. That's also why it's going to take at least a year for the Japanese to release the second season license to Bandai (assuming the first season doesn't tank and Bandai is still interested in licensing the second,) since they don't want Japanese consumers re-importing the stuff for a third of the cost they'd pay to buy locally.

Is it just me, or even the manga has got yuri scenes subtly scattered across it too?



From Vol 3, Chpt 7, Pg 6.

And that panel by itself is just so.....perfect.

The fanservice level of the manga is much higher compared to the anime. Main thing that convinced me that kakifly is male. Just compare the way Mugi looks during the Mugi-vision scenes. In the anime she's just happy, in the manga she almost looks orgasmic.

So, yeah, there's this question I've been wondering about these past few days. With all the competitive fandom over Azusa and Mio, what if... Azusa has her role switched with Mio, such that she first appears in the first episode, and Mio first appears in the eighth? Would the fanboys have liked Mio as much as they do today, but in terms of her personality rather than her moeness (which would not be emphasized as much if she was to appear later in the series, like Azusa)?

I guess Mio is moe no matter how much that is covered up. It's her personality, after all, and through character development (irregardless of how little there is), her moeness would shine through in a matter of time. It's just ironic that with Azusa, lesser screentime in the first season meant more character development for her in the second (due to the writers wanting to show more of Azusa to make up for her lack of screentime), so that might ring true if Mio was in her position, not having as much screentime as well?

Of course, I guess you could always think about what this means to Azusa, too... if you want. I just care about what would happen to Mio. Azusa being Ritsu's bestfriend would've probably mean less pain for the former's head, though. Heh.

The second part is the chorus for Gohan wa Okazu (starting at "gohan wa sugoi yo nai to komaru yo"...)

I can't place the first part anywhere though.
