Now what? It was, by far, the most popular series of the season and now that it’s over, what did you think? Personally, I thought it was a good series though not as epic as some fans anticipated. It was arguably the most hyped anime series since The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi. Maybe a bit too much hype? Yeah, I’d probably say so but that doesn’t detract from the fact that every week I had fun watching the latest episode ;)
And despite the huge fanbase that formed around Mio, she didn’t end up being my favorite character. For me, it was Yui with Azusa in a close second. Mio was entertaining most of the time but I think her ‘scaredy-cat’ personality was overdone a bit. Ritsu and Mugi-chan also were fun characters and we can’t forget about the super-cute imouto, Ui :3. Honestly, that’s what made this show worthwhile; the characters were great. The story itself was fairly mediocre but the characters and their interactions kept the pace, laughs, and fun going ^^
So, yeah, K-ON! wasn’t a miraculously awesome series or anything but it is was fun ^^. Hmmm, now I need to think about the next show to watch… Maybe I should catch up on Hayate or Eden of the East.
