Not too late into the party I hope (wait, it’s a new series, so I guess I’m in time!).
Yup, after hearing all the raves, spams of all sorts, I finally gave in to my curiosity and watched the first episode of K-ON!, which by the looks of it, is the current object of tons and tons of popularity for this season. Well, first ep in, and there’s no doubt that it’s by KyoAni — their style oozing right from the moment the show started — which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, of course.
So far, I still stand by the fact that it is overrated (as with ToraDora) . But I guess it’s understandable, since it is KyoAni after all. Saying that I’m not the slightest into the wave will be hypocritical. A studio like that will undoubtedly generate massive level of hypes among the fans. That aside, it is a pretty enjoyable show; looks like I’ll be keeping this on my watch-list. What really impressed me, is the art style for the ED — I like the monochrome neo-retro sort of feel. And damn, the ED is addictive. Looks like Dont be “Lazy” will be on my music spamlist along with the new FMA OP.
Lucky Star rip-off? Nah, “It’s a KyoAni” that’s all. 😀
Yeah, it’s a been there, done that slice-of-life, with all the same character archetypes and scenes, but hey, just because it’s cliche, doesn’t mean it’s bad and can’t be good. It’s not a masterpiece: you won’t see me going fanboy mode over it, but, hey, it’s entertaining.
Yomi Mio is hot.
