K-On was a phenomenon that was somewhat expected, being KyoAni, but still fun to watch explode. K-On was far from the best anime out there, but it managed to be fairly steady, and put a smile on my face every week. The show was also peppered with some very nice music, and an ending theme that featured some very cool outfits.
K-On even penetrated my life, stuck in a small Ohio town.
Part of it was I felt like the cast of K-On was part of my life, most of them who I was trying to make the most of our final months together. I was Yui. I had a twin sister to be her sister. There was a Mugi. A Ritsu. And one of my best friends, a Mio and an Azuma. As I excitedly tried to explain this to my friends, they actually checked it out, and my Mugi ended up watching it as well.
Now, whenever I watch it, I can’t help but think of us, and the tight knit group we were, even though we’ve mostly gone our separate ways.
Also, K-On had the unintentional side effect of helping my now boyfriend and I become closer friends. It’s all good.
