K-ON 06 has…

… disappointed me. What was with that weird imagery of the girls doing some illegal live or some shit when they started singing? God damn KyoAni. Just show them singing in the hall!

Anyways, next week has loli Yui and Ui. God damn that was like the best part of the whole episode for me. Even Mio is getting a bit on my nerves now that KyoAni is overplaying her “shyness” factor to the absolute limit. It’s almost becoming irritating.

    I already knew Mio is generic and plain as salted crackers.

    ALL HAIL RITSU!!! The hairband is enough to win the fights.

    Isn’t this a good sign? Seriously, Kyoani has been doing a good job and with this and of course the first episode of Lucky Star we can prove they are just that- good, not gods. Before these mistakes people got so irritated on how good they were, that they pointed out the good points as bad ones, creating much idiocy and butthurt.

    Now when they are on a human level, we can expect less of that faggotry to follow, and criticism being actual criticism and not stupidity caused by envy or something.

    Don’t worry, be happy!

    I hope they actually do show them singing during their next band performance… Still, I wonder what the widescreen will look like, let alone the DVD/Blu-Ray extras are~

    I kinda understand why they made the thing into a PV-sorta thing instead of just the live. I mean, everyone was specting a “live a live” remake of sorts. They went with something different.

    For me worked fine.

    Well, it isn’t always good, sometimes KyoAni overmaking it, especially @ Mio’s part… Hope 4 the next episode~!! 八(^□^*)

    I think they are saving the budget for a better concert toward the end of the series

    pretty sure if they do the live one… people will start comparing to suzumiya’s live concert. It’s a change for a start xD

    Aha, my favorite character remains steadfast. Ritsu is love!

    And a Yui is fine, too.

    Mugi in nurse outfit was also awesome.

    The doskoi segment had me grinning from ear to ear as well. Almost lol’ed.. almost.

    Update: Having seen the episode I don’t see what the fuss is all about, the music video thing was an interesting twist, probably used so they wouldn’t be nagged on for doing a school festival live scene again.

    Yes it’s not ‘really’ a big deal, but I hated it. It was distracting and not what I expected.

    But then again, Japanese’s music videos are pretty fucking weird 95% of the time (remember Sakura Kiss? Or the panda in Ash like snow? Don’t even get me started on KOTOKO or ALIPRO…) so I guess this is ‘normal’ for them.

    And there’s nothing wrong with doing another ‘Live A Live’. I am not expecting Haruhi-level performance from K-ON anyways.

    i must mention a couple of things that are my opinion as your opinion will maybe be against mine:

    1)stop the comparison to Haruhi Live-a-Live thing:
    1.1) Haruhi has godlike powers so she can make anything awesome
    1.2) Kyoani (i hope) wont try to repeat some things since they have(i hope) learn that repeat thing will always give different results and all people will bitch/compare to the original (Haruhi ED v/s Lucky Star OP… any questions?

    2) lets view the song AND act from other point:
    2.1) first show: yeah, its the girls first show, so what would you spect at a first time show? a crappy performance! so why show a crappy (or maybe normal) presentation first show when you can show something a little more “interesting” (might be weird but interesting), if you notice at the end the people give a normal applause so they know that wasnt breathtaking it was average/likeable (before ANYONE try to use again the comparison that Haruhis show was a “first time” for here please read point 1.1)
    2.2) sucky song is sucky… but what can you expect being IS FIRST CHRONOLOGICAL SONG? my guessing is that in the last episode they will sing Don’t say Lazy as all people were expecting but for now lets leave it at that as a first song, remember that even the girls thougth the song (at least the lyrics) wasnt very good really

    this comment is directed to any blog that makes a bad mention for not show the actual “show” so dont take it personal

    Even if they did not do a “Live A Live” so that people won’t compare it to Haruhi’s, it still did not work. I already start to see people comparing it to Haruhi and saying how much it sucks so I guess KyoAni could not avoid it. People will always find something to attack (if they hate it) or something to compare to (no necessarily because they hate it).

    On another note:
    There are Character Singles announced for June and onwards^^
    So they’ll have quite a variety of songs by the end of K-On. We’ll see what they’ll do for the other concerts.

    But back to topic: Don’t let your joy for K-On be spoiled just because of one weird/unexpected Music-Video of 2mins, seriously. Besides this scene, the rest of the episode was your normal K-On humor…

    Sure you weren’t disappointed with the fact that they censored the panty flash? I was. I bet that’s the real reason you were disappointed.

    In the manga it was on the stage, next page, finished, people happy, mio trip, and we see the panty. and I have no idea why KyoAni decided on the blue color…

    You surprise me Kurogane-sensei; don’t let a small detail spoil the fun that you’re having so far.

    I agree whit everyone, KyoAni must be saving that concert for the last episode; remember that Ritsu put them a serious goal to reach. Take it easy and enjoy the ride.

    Sure, it felt awkward for a moment, just that.

    I liked it. Mio is “ruined for marriage”, just like Haruhi likes them.

    It was funny. That is what counts this time around.

  25. Kurogane Shiroikaze Said,

    May 9, 2009 @ 12:30 pm

    First off let me just say I didn’t start the Live A Live comparison. All I just want is something normal for god’s sake, not some weird, nonsense PV.

    @Wazaraku: We all know the girls aren’t professionals. It’s a bloody school club for god’s sake. I know they aren’t good, but I still want to see them. So why should they replace their performance with something ‘more interesting’. I just hated it because it made no sense AT ALL! It’s not something I expect from a KyoAni show. KyoAni may be surprising sometimes, but they never do nonsense things.

    @The rest of you guys: *shrugs*, I enjoyed the rest of the episode apart from the stuff I pointed out here.

    Ritsu in lovely dress is lovely.

    I found the video clip stylized scenes enjoyable, I was expecting a sorta boring high school music scene and got pure awesome.

    Mio is/has been crap. The Mio I have been pining for is the one in the ED, she is cool confident and sexy. Personally I was hoping she would become more like this after their first live act, obviously the LOL I TRIP has totally stopped this becoming a reality in the near future. Shyness may be “moe-moe kyun” but i agree that this is to much.

    I think some of you are taking things too seriously. Like someone said, enjoy the ride. It’s not horrible so don’t let some personal preference deter you from watching what I dare say is a really good series, if not great.

    Seriously, anime is not supposed to be SERIOUS BUSINESS but nowadays too many people just love to criticize things.
