The highly anticipated anime K-on! is here. The plot of this anime is simple, 4 four cute high school girls join the light music club of their school. The thing is that they are the only members of this said club and 3 out 4 out the girls don't have that much experience playing musical instruments or able to read sheet music. So, it sounds like your run of the mill slice-of-life high school anime but it's not.
Let me first introduce to you the characters. First up is Yui Hirasawa, she is the clumsy airhead of the show who daydreams at the worst time. She is the guitarist of the club but the thing is that she was never played before.
Ritsu Tainaka is the self proclaimed president of the club. She is the drummer of the club because she thinks drums are cool and she really bad at instruments that need the use of finger movement.
Mio Akiyama is a shy girl who has been friends with Ritsu since their early childhood. She the Bassist of the club.
Tsumugi Kotobuki is the gentle spirit and rich girl of the club. She is the only one who has any musical ability in the club cause she has been playing the piano since she was 4 years old.
The story begins when Yui starts high school and she is looking for a club to join. Later in the week, Yui's childhood friend confronts her that she needs join a club because its important.
Ritsu and Mio end up in the club room waiting for people to walking and join. Tsumugi walks in asking for directions to were the chorus club but gets suckered into joining the light music club by a sad story that Ritsu made up. A week goes by and they still don't have a forth member, the girls make up a flier to get people to join.
Yui notices the flier and decided to join the light music club but the thing is that she can only play the castanets.
When I watching this anime, I was getting sort of a lucky star feel from it. I would say that the animation is great and I wonder how much money did Kyoto Animation get for this anime because it is very active and the movement flows well. The opening and ending are a great example of that.
So, is this anime on your watching list for this anime season or are you pasting it up?
