Ahh I really love the new ED (:
The OP isn't bad.
But god I watched that ED about 5 times in a row (:

The first season OP I was tolerable with but the two second season ones I can only listen to academically -- don't enjoy them at all. Now the pitch range isn't that far from some Viet/Thai/Cambodian traditional music (which I like very much) so I think its the "frenetic/hyper" that I find unpleasant.
I'm finding that I like the general sound of both new OPs but can't bloody tolerate the actual singing. And by singing, I mean the goddamn effects layered over what I presume is a decent voice. I think that might be why I liked S1 more - as far as I can tell, there weren't any bloody effects over the top.

Both sound fine to me, but I guess it's a matter of taste.

I think the first season OP vocals also had effects, but either they were less or just different than those of the second season.

Yeah... listened more closely and see what you mean. The layering of whatever-the-hell-that-is over her voice gets progressively thicker with each OP.

Hmm, I thought the new OP had less of it than Go Go Manic did.

As did I. Utauyo MIRACLE has much cleaner vocals than GO GO MANIAC. Aki Toyosaki is still getting some audio processing help to hit those really high notes, but it isn't anywhere near as blatant as it was in GO GO MANIAC.

I second that. To me, the new OP doesn't sound particularly "chipmunky" at all.

Oh, and a second Season 2 Band Yarouyo, with the new OP and ED: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=PCCG-1063
Released Septemper 15th

I don't have many "concert" video disks of Japanese artists (KOTOKO, ZONE, etc) but the K-On! Live concert clips I've seen were enjoyable enough that I sprang for the concert blu-ray. Sigh, what to sell, what to sell to compensate.

Don't worry, you'll eventually grow to enjoy them. Also, the padded rooms actually feel pretty good when you try to bash your head against the walls.

Wow.... I keep calling this a juggernaut of merchandising phenom but then they keep surprising me. The VAs in this series better enjoy their time because it doesn't hardly get any better for a VA.

Well, they certainly seem to be quite popular choices for other anime right now, so they at least won't be out of a job anytime soon once K-ON!! ends. And Mio's VA's star seems to be getting bigger and bigger. You can definitely say that her dream came true tenfold.

And judging by the K-ON! Let's Go! gig, it looks like they've become very good friends outside of the VA work which would be logical if you spend a lot of time together, either doing VA work of practicing those instruments.

Anyway, I hope the new character songs will be as good (or even better) as the original ones. I do hope that, assuming all 8 characters get another shot at it, that Ui's and Nodoka's become a bit more interesting (as I didn't particularly liked those).
