Note: Currently working on a paper, re-watching the first episode of K-On, drinking brown rice tea and helping (and failing) mom use the call function on Yahoo Messenger… so pardon the messy post.
I was browsing through DannyChoo.com when I stumbled upon his article about K-On!. I only read up to the second image because I couldn’t wait to watch it. I finished the first episode yesterday and already I’m hooked.
So far my favorite character is Mio ^_^ She just looks so cool.
Story wise, it’s interesting and light, perfect for me right now. I’m not in the mood for dark deep stuff XD What really attracted me though was the art/style. It’s really cute and I really like the fluidity of the movements. I’ve always kind of wished for an anime that’s something like Lucky Star but less… fixed to the backgrounds/static… Can’t really explain. I mean, I love Lucky Star and it’s style of characters moving in a single background works for it, but I also like it when characters “explore” their surroundings ^^’
Anyway, my point is, I like K-On! ^_^
Wah. Anime like this make me think of my own high school days. I too was part of a group of four friends. Haha!
I watched it again today for the… 4th or 5th time… and I realized something: Even if the ep shows how silly looking or easy castanet playing is, it really isn’t. It’s not even played like that. It’s played by clicking them together using one hand. I used to think it was really easy till I tried it in Spain after watching a Flamenco dance XD
