"K-ON!" is an anime series that is stylishly created but also features beautifully painted art backgrounds. Presented in 1080p High Definition (1:78:1 anamorphic widescreen), one thing that I love to see when it comes to anime series is the attention to detail when covering a modern setting.
A lot of TV series tend to not make the backgrounds of a city landscape so detailed and tend to put a lot of recycled trees, dirt and sky but "K-ON!", is not one of those anime series. There are scenes and also still images of natural settings that are beautifully painted and added to the series. There is detail for the instruments, for the desserts and I felt that with each episode, aside from the practice room and the wideshot image of their school, there was always something new being featured in terms of location. So, the color palette of the series is full of color and nothing is stale or seemed regurgitated.
With that being said, the colors are a bit saturated but for an anime TV series (which is expected) but the OVA does feature more vibrant colors and a bit more detail.
For the many decades I have watched Japanese animation, for anime series that are set in a modern Tokyo setting, I prefer anime series that focused on the smallest details, such as what is inside their bedrooms and home. What's inside the stores when they go shopping, etc.Read more ›
Valentines day is also just around the corner. Azu-nyan has decided to make a chocolate cake for her beloved band members. As graduation creeps closer, emotions start to surface, and the hope of getting into the same college stresses them out. If we know one thing about the light music club, it's that they always come through in the end.
This anime is one of the cutest and most fun that I've seen. Not much actually happens in K-On. It's kind of like Lucky Star and Azumanga Daioh in that there is a general premise, but no real story line. Despite it's lack of direction, the story is great. If you've seen the series up to this point, you already know this. The last couple episodes get a little emotional. The band makes a special presentation for Azu-nyan after graduation. The mood lightens up a little after that. There are a few bonus episodes about making a recruitment video and such.
The animation, voice acting and soundtrack are all good in K-On. The dialogue and detail in the animation are much better than the average series. Overall, the production quality is great. My only complaint with this series is that it's only in stereo. I don't see the point of HD if you slack on the audio as well. Other than that, this is a great series. I hope that they release the movie soon. All good things must come to an end, but who says they have to end after season 2?
In the meantime, however, there's so much going on it's as life has decided to throw everything it can at them. Going to music festivals won't be hard to swing, but running a marathon? That will be a stretch! Yearbook photos? The horror! And a school play with Mio and Ritsu cast as Romeo and Juliet? Ooo, awkward. Then, of course, there's one big final performance for the band!
Contains episodes 14-27.
Special Features: Clean Opening Animation, Clean Closing Animation.
Spoken Languages: English, Japanese, English subtitles.
The animation is gorgeous, the characters are adorable, the story is compelling and the English dub is fantastic making this series a must own for any music loving anime fans and one of my favorite animes!

Always love K-on. If there were more episodes to order, I certainly would in a heartbeat. A bit pricey, but for what it's worth, I don't mind paying.Published on June 4, 2013 by Dani Bale
