Though the Key adaptations of Kyoto Animation constitute an important half of the popular studio’s portfolio, as well as being some of the most celebrated stories in recent history, it has always been the other half of the KyoAni portfolio which seemed to have the real mass appeal amongst otaku. Now, in the wake of a straight two years of focus on the much-loved narrative of Key’s CLANNAD, KyoAni once again returns to the "fun" mode which brought it two of its biggest successes, bringing us K-ON!, an adaptation of a ongoing 4-koma about a group of high school girls who attempt to save the light music club in their group, despite one of them having no prior experience in a band, and having to start all over from scratch. Moe, music, comedy; the signs are promising indeed, as is the first episode of what would hopefully become just the latest of Kyoto Animation’s triumphs.
Welcome to the next KyoAni Phenomenon. K-ON!, Episode 1.
Who’s that stalking Yui? Creepy….
RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE
….ahem, excuse me. Let’s move on.
In any case, while K-ON! definitely shows promise of being a very worthwhile watch for this season, the reason I’ve put it on Trial Run for now is because, well, it’s actually my own writing skills which I’m not sure is up to the task of covering it. We’ll see how it goes, but whatever the case, I will definitely be following this series. Who knows just what this might become.
