K-ON!! Half-Time Review
Along with every series there are always at least a handful of people who will hate it. In terms of K-ON! this amount is only doubled, but there are still many closet fans and people who saw no problem with the series from the beginning…I happen to be one of those happy fans who have been enjoying this series as well since season one!
The second season has been pretty solid. This show only continues to make me feel nothing but happiness as I watch it. Yui continues to be my favourite character by a landslide this season especially since she has been so adorably hilarious as of late! From her calling Azusa when she was lost and even while she was wearing the maid outfit I couldn’t help but let my heart flutter for a while in the awesomeness of it.
The way Yui lives is how I hope to for myself. From what I can tell, Yui never does homework or studies (not that I really either, she sleeps all day (sounds a bit familiar of myself), she focuses only on the least important details in a conversation (I need to start not caring about what people say it seems) and she gets her sister to do everything for her (I’ve been trying this one out; it’s a definite work in process). I still have a little more to go it seems before my “live as Yui does” plan is complete! Granted, following this lifestyle I don’t think I’ll be able to get very far up any sort of “status ladder”.
Anyway, as I have already mentioned in a separate post, episode four was one of the best episodes I’ve seen from a slice of life series in a long time! It just managed to really capture a moment so perfectly and it had awesome monkeys in it and a pug, which also helped in making my soul much more complete.
I think the main reason to why I love this show and how it manages to continue to interest me is how even if the events are nothing like what has happened in my life, it still feels like a trip down memory lane. Having been a fool of the past (not anymore of course..) watching this show is like reliving the days of getting to be a fool. This series also comes as a good reminder that there is good in this world, and these seniors are soaking up all the moments they can.
