What a lame first comment that was. A friend of mine's been trying to get me to watch the K-On fansub, but I'm just not ready to watch another slice-of-life high school girl comedy anime again. I've already finished Azumanga Daioh (twice, if you consider both the anime AND the manga) and Lucky Star.

Definitely goes toe to toe with Lucky Star for the king of slice of life. But it really is a show about nothing, there is no plot here. It is 4 (then 5) moeblobs acting cute in high school and playing in a band. So keep that in mind.

It was a cute show though, some really good music in it if you're a fan of j-pop

EGAD! My EARS!
I don't know how the VA for Noel Vermillion is going to pull off a Mio. And I'm not curious enough to find out.

I enjoyed this series subbed, it may have took me a couple of months to finish. Twas a show I had to watch in small doses, but the music is awesome. I was a fan. Only wish it had more music scenes in the actual show.

To let everyone know, the dub does a pretty good job with just Yui sounding a bit off in some places.

What?! As much as I already wasn't down for the dub, knowing this is the nail in the coffin. I don't think that was a good casting decision at all...

I know K-On is dumb. I won't deny that, but I still somehow watched both seasons and liked it. I don't know why. I guess I just found something charming about it. I've heard that this trailer isn't a good representation of the dub and that it's better than what is displayed here, but I think I'll hold off a while before I buy the blu-rays.

Ohhhh, nononononoooo. Hate on me all you want, but K-ON! is one of my favorite anime of all time! The english dubs sound terrible :(

K-ON! is brilliant. I love humorous slice-of-life animes and K-ON! is one of the best. Though this dubbed bullshit sounds horrible. Subtitles fo-evah.

I've heard this is either very good or awful depending on the forum I go on. I'm up for giving it a go but I doubt it will beat the whimsy of Azumanga Diaoh

This is pretty much how I feel, I find myself sometimes watching it and going "well that seems unlikely" but I have watched both seasons and I do love it. Just charms the pants off me, and the humour makes me smile.

Although after having spent all that time with the fansubs and the Japanese VA's, I doubt I could watch the dub at this point. If I hadn't already watched it I'm sure I'd be fine with it, I'm not one of those guys who refuses to watch dubs, but I'm too far gone at this point.

Exactly how I feel, I know it's stupid, but it still charms the pants off me and makes me smile. Plus the music is pretty good.
Not sure I can deal with the dub though, I'm normally fine watching dubbed anime, but after watching 2 series of the fansubs it'd drive me crazy by this point.

It's as if KyoAni took every criticism of modern Anime, made it into a show, and Bang Zoom! added an abysmal dub, just for the hell of it.

 

Thanks, guys.
