K-ON!



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fia0iyvd0Dw

K-ON! is a slice of life anime about a group of high school girls forming a band in a light music club (K-ON!) The main thing that stands out in this to me is the music.  It was surprisingly really good.  The relationships between the girls are strong and develop nicely over the series.  Unlike most slice of life animes this one has more of a plot than usual.  It focuses on them getting ready for various concerts and school festivals.  Seriously the music is just fantastic.  Its not really you're typical J-pop stuff.    Its has a more rock a little punk in it. But it seriously is awesome. And the music videos they use for the ending theme (as above) are tons better than anything put out by any main stream pop artists over here.


Over all its just a really fun anime to follow. Season 2 is about to end and they're about to graduate high school! I have no idea if they're going to follow them throughout college.  I hope so.  Normally I like it when animes have a set number of episodes with a well thought out plot arc over so many episodes but with slice of life stuff like this they have the potential to go on and on and on.  and of course the Kawaii factor is way high in this one! watch it!

  3. K-ON is a light and fluffy anime and probably a good start into the slice of life genre if you want to get into the cute girls doing cute things. This and Lucky Star would be good. These shows would be the polar opposite of hentai, no sex or pantie shots to be found in this one.
