This will be the greatest movie of all time.

I seriously can't wait. I've been feeling rather ill with manflu all day, but hearing the anouncement made me jump up and actually fist pump. I just hope after the movie this isn't the true end. Hopefully if the Movie makes top en, they'll make some more manga/anime! :D

I almost died, but then I remembered that I HAVE to see this. I'll die of happiness afterwards~

DJLowrider 2010-09-28 15:21

Speaking of death, anyone know if that guy who threatened suicide over the end of the series followed through? If so, joke's on him after all. :heh:

Let the speculation commence regarding what the movie's content will be. Personally, I doubt it'll be a recap of any kind but if it is...hell, I'll still watch it and enjoy. If the animation is anywhere close to the level KyoAni brought to the Vanishment movie, this is going to be amazing to watch regardless of its story.

This is rather shocking.. Budokan anyone?

Sparvid 2010-09-28 15:24

Question #1 is when it will be released.

Checking Disappearance of Haruhi to compare KyoAni productions, that one was announced in October 2009 with a release date of "spring 2010", which later turned out to be February.

Haven't seen episode 26 yet so seeing this thread here was a huge surprise, but all I can say is


kitten320 2010-09-28 15:37

For real? When will it be out and are there any ideas on what it will be about? Lik University years or something?

DJLowrider 2010-09-28 15:38

For any still in doubt...

Spoiler for Announcement:

This is . . . perplexing. A K-On . . . movie? How does one turn a slice-of-life moe-bait show like K-On into a movie? It's almost like trying to make a movie out of Seinfeld. Maybe if they made a mock documentary of Hokago Tea Time on tour, complete with flashbacks to earlier points in their career, goofy interviews with screaming, obsessed fans in a hilarious, ruthless, satire of otaku culture and rock documentaries. Why they could do an anime version of "This is Spinal Tap"! That'd be just awesome, and I'd pay good money to go see it in a theatre.

Alas, I'm expecting two hours of tea quaffing, cake munching, crumpet crunching, borderline-yuri, Mugi-vision-tastic antics, walking around, and cute moe-bait scenes as the girls struggle to overcome their inherent shiftless slackerdom to get ready for Budokan. Hopefully the movie budget will be such that they will be willing to work hordes of animators to their very deaths to make the most awesome-est fifteen minute long concert scene ever animated to end the movie with. If not, they'll cheap out and relentlessly recycle as much anime footage as possible, couching it in flashbacks and the movie will end with some cute and touching scene where the girls will go "wow, wasn't Budokan just freakin' awesome?" and the otaku will all scream "KAWAII!" and KyoAni will escape without having to actually animate much of the girls' performance at Budokan.

Don't get me wrong, I like K-ON! and I like the second season of K-ON!! even more. The movie announcement, however, makes me nervous.

Lord of Fire 2010-09-28 16:05

I'm with GMT on this, I seriously can't fathom what this movie will be about if they're not gonna do a recap or retelling.

I'd love to see it, and probably will regardless, but I'm not gonna expect much until I know more about it.

WBoon 2010-09-28 16:19

I'm not gonna criticize - seriously, this time. I'm just gonna say, the first image that came into my head was a Hollywood blockbuster blow'em up movie, probably because of that one trailer Sawako summarized in Episode 25 (I think?). lol Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's gonna be cheesy. It's just me daydreaming how cool it'd be (for me) if the script is written in like, a really epic sense. "K-On! The Movie! Hirasawa Yui! Akiyama Mio! After School Tea Time! BIG. BLOCK. LETTERS. Don't miss their finest performance! BOOM BOOM BAW!"

In all seriousness, I'm surprisingly expectant towards the coming of the movie. I've seen quite a few anime movies (though mostly just Detective Conan and Digimon movies) that really have something gratifying to reward you. Though this does not mean that the accompanying movies are better than the series (of course), you could usually find a really awesome factor in the movie the series normally doesn't have. Not like a filler, 'coz a filler just gets the plot moving. An anime movie, however, just feels... awesome.

Or perhaps it's just because I haven't the chance to watch an anime movie for a while. :) "Wow. K-On's got a movie." Just listen to the sound of that, and smile. Heh.

Chocolate Pocky 2010-09-28 16:47

I haven't seen episode 26 yet, So When I saw this I was confused and Then I sqeeed. I'm like so happy. Hopefuly it comes out as a good movie. Considering it comes from my favorite animation studio, then I have high hopes :D

And I was thinking about "All You Need Is Cash". :heh:

Peanutbutter 2010-09-28 17:42

This could be great or this could be really damaging to Kyo-ani.

A slice of life anime as a movie?!?! :confused:

kitten320 2010-09-28 17:43

Maybe their college years or some trip after graduation?

Tri-ring 2010-09-28 18:39

Could it be a live action movie?

Ithekro 2010-09-28 18:47

Doubt it. Wouldn't be as interesting.
