[K-ON!] Don’t Say “Lazy”~

5 Comments

Not too late into the party I hope (wait, it’s a new series, so I guess I’m in time!).
K-ON Team

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.

Impressions:
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.

Mio

Oh Haruhi, Yomi Mio is hot.

  1. Track two of that ED album is the real star, I thought.

    KyoAni do overdo these things abit. Mainly in advertising, lol.

  2. Really? I got to get my hangs on it!

    Haha yeah, trust KyoAni and their marketing strategies.

  3. Mio is probably the reason why K-on is here. And also, Mio is the reason why Don’t Say Lazy is more popular than Cagayake Girls (If I spelled it right). Afterall, Mio’s the frontman in the Keion-bu in the ED.

  4. I’ve been following K-ON! religiously since day one, but – you’ll probably kick me in the shins for this but what the heck – I haven’t heard the ED in full. Not once. Not because I don’t like it but because of my unfortunate tendency to skip OPs and (more frequently) EDs in a desperate effort to save time.

  5. lol I skip the OPs/EDs too. I just get the full version to listen to on my MP3😀
