This is a 100% Mio post.




I would so gladly take her tissues, iykwim.


I’d IRRASHAI her MASEN, iykwim.



Doesn’t Mio just exudes an aura of “bully me please” somewhat. I’d so tease her, iykwim



I suspect my future K-ON! posts will be almost the same as this post. And there’s too many ‘iykwim”s in this post, goddammit.

    K-ON! provokes lots of gut reactions, so this post format seems the most adequate. :P

    I thought Mio was going to be a tsundere, but she seems to be simply extremely shy, which works wonderfully with her explanation as to why she doesn’t play the guitar.

    Also, love her blank stare. Those eyes~.

    So does this mean you need a Fujibayashi sister to help “bully” Mio?

    Man, I’m not sure whether to be glad that everyone recognizes the love that is Mio, or annoyed because everyone’s after my girl. :|

    Good ep. Kyoani should keep this up til’ whatever episode.

    I wonder why I seem to be the only guy who doesn’t really like K-On. It totally fails to capture me.

    Mio is the only saving grace of it. But is this going to be enough?

    Nagi-san…I mean, Mio-san, is just so cute. I feel bad for her, but I wouldn’t be able to resist teasing her either.

    Seriously if you ask me, it’s still too early to judge K-ON. Lucky Star didn’t really get “going” until the third or 4th episode and it involved a director change too.

    Now it’s still just the 2nd episode, so I’m gonna reserve judgement and continue on it. Besides, I am watching the show for Mio.

    People seem to take K-ON way too seriously, like some sort of Haruhi replacement or something. It is just simple lighthearted fun, nothing more, nothing less. Kyoani isn’t exactly trying to top their last achievement with a new one, more likely following the same track- make adaptions with effort.

    I don’t care about hype or whatever, if a series is good, I watch it, if it is not, I drop it. I stopped watching series because they were popular ages ago. There is no such thing as “otaku duty”.

    Well, at least a vast majority of people agree that Mio is the saving grace of this show. Hell, directors seem to agree too, what with giving her (The bass player) the lead role in the ed. That’s just weird since usually it’s the guitarist, but she’s also the vocalist, so I guess it makes sense in this case.

  19. Rawr Said,

    Mio isn’t really tsundere. She’s just extremely shy, and has this bully-me aura that makes you want to tease and protect her :D That said, it’s the contrast between her atypically shy personality and her appearance of being a cool level-headed tsundere that makes her unique imo.

    Agree with other Yui Fans, Needs Moar Yui.

    Moe goodness is moe good. But after the effort they put into raising funds for Yui’s guitar, and then Mugi just is like “ZOMG DISCOUNTZORZ!” it was a rather unsettling deus ex.

    Someone make a gif of Yui munching on the pastry like a squirrel =3

    MORE MIO!!!! :] already since the first episode looking for wallpaper of Mio from ED. She look uber cute there! Besides she said in second epi that she didn’t pick to play guitar because she too shy to stand out, but still she does that in ED.

    Yui seems to have great potential too, hope they will release it at its fullest.

    I admit it, episode 2 has completely endeared Mio to me. She is the best!

    Yui > Tsumugi > Ritsu > Mio

  25. Jobrill Said,

    After having considered things for a while, I have decided that a Tsumugi is fine too.

    So Mio >= Tsumugi > Yui > Ritsu is my order I think.

    It’s very funny when Tsumugi go and bargain for the price of the guitar from 250,000 yean (RM 8,750) to 50,000 yen (RM1,750) when she is the daughter of the boss of the company.

  27. ithekro Said,

    April 11, 2009 @ 1:47 pm

    Actually it looked like she was having fun bargaining the price down. That “lower” came out way too cheerful.

    Wow, I forget she (and everyone else) is 15. o.o

    I fail at not noticing that. o_o

    Still, Mio is <3

    Anyway, for me it’s Mio > Yui = Tsumugi > Ritsu

    Mio is love.

    And Tsumugi reminds me too much of Nia Teppelin.
