K-On! was my very first anime. I first watched it back in 2010 on Animax. I absolutely loved it back then and still love it now.
It’s a fun slice-of-life anime filled with funny and distinguishable characters and a feel-good plot which is enjoyable to watch with a cup of tea and snacks. It’s never too full of drama, never too overdone, never too full of action, but a nice depiction of everyday life of a high school student which will leave you feeling pleasantly relaxed at the end.
It’s filled with cuteness and comedy which will leave you helplessly holding your sides. You may go through entire episodes with a smile on your face!
Music is one of the core elements of this anime. The characters become friends through music by joining the ‘Light music club’ of their school. It’s nice to see how the characters become attached to the music they make together which helps them to become such good and close friends. Plus, they’ve good some really smashing soundtracks.
The characters are lovable and so funny in their own ways. You’ll soon become attached to them and their friendship which is why, at the few sentimental parts : like their concerts, their trips, their little moments together and their graduation, you’ll find yourself tearing up. There’s always something about slice-of-life anime that’ll leave you thinking about your own life and comparing it to the anime (especially if you’re also a high school student).
K-On is ridiculously funny, full of cuteness, goofiness, a set of lovable characters – Yui, Mio, Ritsu, Tsumugi, Azusa, Sawako-chan (still my favorite teacher in anime, ever), Ui, Nodoka, and many others. I love their moments together, when they’re just sitting around lazily, enjoying their teatimes after-school, talking and joking about anything and just happily being themselves with friends they enjoy making music and being with. I still have a good laugh thinking about all the scenes of the show and all they good times they had.
Forever in my heart as the best anime, K-On!
