WARNING: THIS POST KINDA GETS DERAILED INTO RAMBLING ABOUT MY OWN LIFE IN THE MIDDLE, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK
Approximately 5 minutes ago, I just finished watching the 24th episode of K-on!!. As shocked as I was and still am about the fact, I still have tears on my face.
I remember when K-on first came out. In fact, I can still dig up that old “first impressions” post I wrote. To say that I liked the show or that I was impressed by it would be something that couldn’t be further than the truth. The BGM was quite boring for a show based on music (and I have to say that it didn’t really improve), the characters seemed flat and looked blobby, and overall, the ending song was the only thing I liked about it. Of course, the chances of me watching the show was greatly reduced by the legions of people cheering about how moe Mio is. Oddly enough, I didn’t watch Haruhi and Lucky Star at first for similar reasons, but I grew to absolutely love those two shows. Maybe that’s the reason that I decided to give the show a second chance. You know what, I am SO glad that I watched this show. (more…)
