Threeway voting GO!!

The only characters I don't like are Ton-chan (what was the point of this again?) and Jun (she served no purpose as well. Yes, "purpose" in a slice-of-life show is a paradox, but it felt like she was just added there for the heck of it and didn't even have anything noticeable about her), because otherwise everyone is made to be likable, but as far as choosing my favorite goes it was a split decision between Mio Akiyama, Ritsu Tainaka, and Yui Hirisawa, but upon seeing there was an option to vote for all three, I promptly did just that.

My fancy towards Mio is aligned with exactly the reasons that make her one of the more popular characters if amount of fanart and competing (and winning?) at Saimoe' says anything; the hot, aloof/cool/serious kind of gal who in actuality is very sensitive, to say the least, and her straight-man/funny-man routine with Ritsu never got old. With everything about her the way it is, there might as well be a sign that reads "Otaku bait here!", but my goodness I'm happy to be one of the fishes. And speaking of Ritsu, it's kind of hard -not- to like her since her actions end up providing a good portion of the show's humor, and between all of them Tainaka looks like the most fun to hang out with, but I'm not sure I could keep up with her. Being on the mischievous side of the behavior coin works perfectly when she interacts with Mio. Actually, let me take that back; Mio and Ritsu are just missing something when they're not together, and the third girl I named is essentially their fallback when the other isn't available. Yui is either the butt-monkey to Ritsu's antics or becomes -too- focused (to hilarious levels) when Mio is scolding everyone. Hirisawa essentially magnifies what makes Ritsu and Mio likable. A ditz she is, but well-done that role is. These three are at the top for sure, but I can't say the same for the others even though I still like all of them.

For example, Tsumugi Kotobuki. I don't think it was rather a problem with the character herself--a motherly type who lets her "kids" indulge--but the lack of episodes she had mitigated her status as a main character (then again, I should have learned my lesson with Miyuki Takara). Why, even Asuza Nanako somehow squeezed more minutes from the series than Kotobuki did. Nanako is adorable, but it's hard not to think "Mio V2," and Ui is Yui with more (an actual?) sense of responsibility. Sawako isn't a bad character either for what she is, but she doesn't have Kuroi's command over the screen (I should stop comparing this to Lucky Star). And rounding out the secondary cast is Nodoka, who is the only down-to-earth character and helps one to relax after round upon round of silliness.

True indeed. But then again, not everyone in a group shines equally. I also agree that her status as a main character is kinda diminished, but I think it maybe her role after all.

I think KyoAni did quite a good job promoting her in this s2, but it seems she just doesn't appeal to many people she had much of her moments in the manga cut from the anime (mostly joke contents), while the original added content doesn't seem to suffice.

For example, the Mugi-Azu guitar lesson. That part should've been exclusive to Mugi, and in the manga, we can see that her lesson with Azusa continues. But in the anime they made that episode for all of HTT members. And the continued lesson didn't make it into the anime. In a side, I think it should be that way since s2 empashized Azusa as a junior. But in other side, I feel kinda sad since that manga chapter is quite important because it shows the relationship of Azusa and Mugi.

As for the original contents, well most of them are about her love to the world of commoner good thing that they extended the Ritsu-Mugi episode and give them a sweeter ending compared to the manga. And I also love how they give Mugi a song to sing by herself.

Well, the point is, once again. I think KyoAni did try to promote Mugi, but she's just not appealing enough to most people.

Well, I want to like Mugi more, but her lack of screentime likely alienated her from what was already a very picky audience. But if nothing else she provides us with our yuri fantasies (a shame it didn't happen more often though).

I'm guessing it should be the other way around. Mio and YUI are still the top two there

Why don't you try to rewatch the anime and try to focus on her? you might find something new within her. I think she also has more shine in other materials such as the Ura-ON! B-side theatre and the manga.

About the yuri fantasies... well... it was dropped in s2 since K-ON!! was going into a new direction which was to appeal female audiences too.

I'd be more inclined to believe Azusa is the favorite of Japan seeing as she did win J-saimoe while none of the other K-ON girls made it to the top 16 even .

This will be true only if every otaku is voting , but there were many which didn't voted at all so you can't say that Azusa is the favorite for sure.

Er..... Maybe ya wrong, Azusa won J-Saimoe, Mio and Yui get into the top ten of J-Saimoe tournament too

And don't think that Mio is not popular at all, she just won international saimoe league

Actually looking back at the chart Mio made to whatever round is before the "top 8"; however she lost directly to Azusa and Mikoto in that round and Yui lost much much earlier.

And Mio's victory in the others does mean she is popular, just not necessarily the most popular in Japan xD, since Best Moe/ISML aren't country specific like J-saimoe is to japan.

I was mostly joking about it because of the previouse Ritsu fabricated votes.

It just looks funny how Mio was the last one among 5 and then suddenly exploded in vote count. Hardcore Mio fans had finally awakened, they sure were sleeping for a long time

Well Ritsu still rules and wins

For me, it the main girls rank

Ritsu >>> Mugi = Yui >> Mio > Azusa.

Ritsu is top because she's obviously superior lol. She was my favourite character since episode one. (I was appalled when she was tied last with Mugi after the first season!)

And Azusa last because... Well, I just never felt anything from her character. Her interactions with the other members never really gotten a reaction from me. Same with Mio. Her character never stood out to me either.
