Who would have thought K-ON could be so hot?
For all those who don’t have the time, space, patience (or legal age) to browse the image sites, feast your eyes upon this… rather interesting depiction… Yui does well in there (she wasn’t even there in the first version I saw *raises fist*), but even if she’s my favorite, Mugi wins the pic with ease, epic pose is epic after all. Not sure how Mio’s assets turned that big, but I suppose that happens when you have many obsessed fans. She’s good though 😛 Wish I had a harem like that /dreamymode.
So anyway, Mistress was rather pleased so she ordered me to blog SOMETHING, you know like “You MUST blog something. Blog something! BLOG SOMETHING OR SUFFER!” (she’s cute when she coerces me to do stuff ^^) Ok so leaving the kinky stuff and jokes aside, it turns out that Monday, besides being a terrible day, cause work/uni/whatever starts again, it’s also a REALLY boring day. I don’t see anything going around and there are no anime ep from a series I watch coming out, and the best I have lying around is K-ON (Shangri-la for its totally weird chars was an option, but I kinda decided against it). And since mistress started with K-ON, I might as well continue, having nothing else to write about. You can find more pics like that in image sites, although I can’t give you the links to these cause they may also contain adult material. So just go search yourselves 😛 (Also… makes me wonder where does Mugi have her name written…)
The KON (or just K-ON ep 8 )
So we have moe Ui checking out the entrance exams’ results so she can join her wonderfully moe sis Yui and the rest of the moe band.
Did you bring my KEKIIIII?!!! T-T
Ok ok, so it's not about the cake 😛 Yui's so sweet ^^
So, smart, responsible, loving Ui passed. I hope the crazy band girls don’t break her… Do your best Ui!! But wait!!
A new challenger has appeared!
Azusa makes an entry. Not sure what to say about the girl, the initial seemingly emotionless stare kinda put me off. Now apparently she’s not like that, but that’s the first thing that came to mind. Yes, I have this thing against expressionless Rei-type girls. And yes, I didn’t like Rei in NGE either. Somehow I ended up liking Asuka. But that’s beside the point 😛 Moving on…
Your price tag came off... ... Wait, WHAT?!!
Oi, Ui, Moe Yui is moe, grooming is unnecessary.
The new classmates ^^ My dream class!! Let me be there too!! T-T
Ok, we have 3 out of 4 going to the same class… so… where’s everyone’s (more like every|other|one’s ) favorite, Mio?
A SAVIOR APPEARS!!
So, after shyMoe found a friend, we all know the freshmans are here so let’s get some more cuties in our light music club! Hmm… Is there a problem?
Let's be frank... You just wanted an excuse to draw bunnies...
Nutcase Sensei is here!
Isn't that like... the definition of Epic Cosplay failure?
Molesting Chicken inbound!
Yui... What happened to your moe?! T-T
>_> Ok, there's supposed to be something moe under that... Really...
Why do I feel like this is the setting for some sort of dark, obscene ritual?
But after this recruiting/cosplaying ordeal/nightmare…
Moe maid is epic! Maid Yui is Moe! Maid Yui is epic moe!
Yui moe is moe! Or is it "Moe Yui is moe"! Who cares!! My eyes are healed!!
If you haven’t already noticed, Yui’s my favorite K-ON girl 😛 Oh and that whole thing was their attempts to advertise their light music club and recruit new members, mainly from freshmen. What we can learn from this is : 1. Nutcase Sensei is not always right, 2. Maid moe is absolute, and 3. Thank God there’s Ui to advertise a bit, otherwise this club would have been doomed. It does make me wonder sometimes… Where are all the guys? Seriously, ANY guy passing by and spotting these girls doing maid cosplay would kill to join (or take over the world, then blow it up in a fit of nerd-rage).
So promotion manager Ui introduces the club members to the new potential recruit.
Ritsu, strong genki leader moe (no, not bonkers moe though, if you know who I'm referring to)
Ritsu is so cool and pretty and moe... guest approved...
Scatterbrain moe... Ok, I like it, but the other girl wasn't that pleased.
Ritsu couldn’t really do it. Kinda pity cause she’s my second favorite >_<
Mugi, sweet, warmth-radiating moe
Mugi's so nice and perfect. Guest approved...
Mugi... I'm not sure everyone approves of your yuri vibes...
Aaaw, Mugi-chan, better like next time. And don’t go into shoujo ai mode all the time, it hurts inside-school sales. Then again, otaku just love it.
You already know shyMoe, so we'll move on 😛
You two are into shyMoe yuri, too, aren't you?
Well, that’s all the members. So the new guest was kinda impressed but in the end she didn’t join (cool jazz senpai or something… meh..) Although, THIS might have played a role in her decision, too.
... Sensei... always keeping an eye out for more... eh... club members...
So that's what it was all about... GOOD JOB SENSEI!!! No wait, it failed... >_>
Ah well, I suppose they can just stop the cosplay show and perform, it’s not like it’s yielding any results, but before that…
Professor Ritsu's revolutionary method at vocal exercises. Let's her pick even the higher notes.
Group photo! Look casual!
I had a couple of screenies about WHY they were forced into the jumpsuits in the first place. But I’m bored, and there are already too many screenies. Whoever hasn’t watched the episode can do so, but in short, Mugi had a problem with her maid sleeves… It was Mugi alright…
Ok, so first day of recruiting wasn’t successful. It was a nice try girls, don’t give up! I mean, you actually managed to make Yui DO something without bringing the building down.
At home Ui reminisces about how Yui has changed so much after she joined the club. Where are the parents again? Oh right, anime plot device has them enter Limbo forever… Typical… So let’s see what’s she’s talking about…
This cutie here is good old Yui... So lazy... So desperate... so me 😛
And this one's the new one... Ok, so Ui, what was keeping you from giving this ice-cream beggar a guitar in the first place?
Time for live performance is again upon us and shyMoe doesn’t want to sing AGAIN… Well… She’s rather convincing… She even convinced me.
Woot!! shyMoe is moe ^^ *squeeeeeze*
Ah well, they agree to have Yui sing this one. Yui, your hard work paid off! ^^
More Ritsu goodness as they were getting ready to roll.
Ritsu seemed rather pleased with Yui’s intro speech, until Yui, being Yui, couldn’t stop.
One last one?? Please?? Just a short one! Ok, there's this cow...
Yui ended up forgetting to sing (again) so shyMoe (aka Mio) picked up, so we got a duet in the end, which was a nice surprise. There was even some sort of PV for one song. The songs were ok I suppose but nothing great, although this being K-ON, they’ll eventually get outsold and overrated but whatever… Minor gripe about the quality of music in general…
The girls thought their performance would have candidates swarming in (well Mio supposedly does have her own fanclub). It’s not so easy, is it?
Yui in old-pervert-waiting-for-his-prey mode
YOU SAID IT! YOU CAN'T TAKE IT BACK NOW! WE OWN YOU!!
Oi, Ritsu, it's her first time (in the club), be gentle.
And so, under the sounds of the terrifying female screams echoing in this old, forgotten school, we bid you, gentle reader, farewell… Whatever… you are…
Ok that was a lame pun from an old cartoon 😛 So anyway, my impression about this. Other than the moe overload, it was an average K-ON ep. Average K-ON eps are nothing to be ashamed of as K-ON in general has a very good value-for-time-spent ratio. I generally tend to heavily criticize KyoAni for its productions, and let’s face it, what K-ON really is is a moe fest, nothing more. But as a moe fest, it’s one win after another.
The animation is good, not spectacular like what KyoAni COULD do, but it’s good nonetheless, and the quality is generally kept on the same level as the previous eps. I’m not sure about the music. The songs are catchy and not terrible, but I feel they’re rather average, be it OP/ED or the new insert songs. But they work for K-ON so they’re ok as it is.
The next ep is about nekomimi and nekogirls, and possibly Azusa cosplaying so don’t miss it. Hopefully she’ll show her true colors pretty soon and get her own otaku fanclub 😛
Anyway, it’s FINALLY over! I’m tired.
For all of you who actually managed to read through this whole thing, here’s a tiny reward. See ya soon.
