Amazon = K-ON!

mio-moemoe-kyun-beam

The astonishing sales record of anything vaguely related to the activities of the Keion-bu continues with the news that a dominating 8 out 10 of the top selling CDs on Amazon.co.jp are K-ON! related.

The complete roster of K-ON! music clogging up the rankings is visible below:

k-on-domination

That otaku are the driving force behind the success of the series seems a certainty, but it appears to be becoming something of a wider hit…

    So by ordering a Best of Kyonkyon album today, I was totally bucking the trend and sticking it to the man. I feel indie already!

    I watch K-On, I like K-On, but I don't think its anywhere near as good as everyone seems to be making it out to be. Its a slightly above average cutesy school girls anime. I don't see what the extreme hype is about.

    i feel this mania bit forced, i mean why the buzz started just in one episode??

    i just hate the fact otaku treated moe just like object, after the mania is over i am sure they will throw all merchandise away and buy the new Moe thing...

    Well, I watched the first episode without any expectatives, after all I dont like music anime... and I got hit for a critical moe strike, 999.999 damage and moe-lover status gained.
    One episode its all that take. And all the other were pure overkill. :D

    It's overly successful for no good reason apart from it has a little bit of moe, it seems.

    you wanna know what?
    after an almost emberassing amount of time i finally got my hands on gurren lagann .... and the ABSOLUTELEY POINTLESS ending to it (ie death of a certain girl having been the drive to it fucking all) made me so much depressed that only the moe moe easygoing k-on could divert any further harm!!!!
    i know ... k-on is bad ... it really is ... but what the hell. they are good at what they wanna show
    .......
    i mean ... come on!!! you kill characters as a plot device to carry the plot ... NOT WITHOUT REASON SO THE PLOT COMPLETELY LOSES ANY OF ITS REASON ... why the hell? without nia nothing would have happened -.- simon would have not so much as lifted a finger for humanity if it hadn't been for nia ... SO WHY FUCKING KILL HER?!?!?!?
    i know ... many of you don't care ... but i just can't take it ... everyone else died senseless, really really senseless, but honorable deaths ... not nia ... NOOOO ... they just have gotta kill her, BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO....

    HEY MANIAC!!- good news! I just asked English V.A. Mela Lee (who was heavily involved with "Gurann Lagann") her thoughts on Your 'Rant' (I gave her a Copy & Paste) and her thoughts were:

    **********
    I agree that nia could have been extended somehow...but as the representative of the Helix race to the far side of the universe (ummm don't think we'll be seeing my character for a while), i'm wishing there were a few changes. - it was a fun show.
    Glad it has people still talking.
    ******************

    I don't know if you saw the English or Subbed version but it appears you are not alone in you Love of this chracter. I Post this because it's funny that Archer112 avatar is the lead in "Rosen Maden" who is also voiced by Mela Lee in the Dubbed version. So Mela is many places. Just trying calm your anger. I remember hating how "Gantz" itself ended...WTF??

    uh...yeah, for over a year now. We had a small discussion about "G_L" and I knew she was very proud of it. You can support her New Album at:
    http://www.MagnoliaMemoir.com [www.MagnoliaMemoir.com] BTW. She doesn't know I post as "Gantz".

    I know alot of V.A.'s. I've pissed off Crispin Freeman with jokes about the ACLU and told Chris Potter he was a 'real Dick' cause he jumped to conclusions when I tryed to say something nice about his 80's style band PLID (which means "Paul Lind Is Dead").

    Carrie Savage will NOT voice Hakafu "Ikki Tuson" ever again. Jessica Boone was very Nice. Luci Christian is always professional, Steve Prince (Uryu "Bleach") scolded me when I told him I've been watching Fan Subs. Stephanie Sheh is often nice. Greg Ayers class act, his brother...way too 'Liberal' for my taste. Johnny Boosh (Ichigo) total professional. Leah Clark (Eri -School Rumble) total doll- actually looks as sassy as she sounds.

    My Playboy model stories are better - it around this time last year Holly was about to leave Hef (despite they were filming for E!).

    What does this have to do Mio & Mugi Moe goodness??...I couldn't follow "G_L" and it's in english in sci-fi chan.

    I actually understand then end movie of Evangelion and I couldn't understand "G_L". I understand "K-On!".

    I think what he's basically saying is that K-On! is easing his mind after watching Gurren Lagann.

    oy....its called life dear, and they had a decent life together a few years is better than nothing.... you're probably the same type to bitch about the ending on cowboy bebop.... "but but but he ddiieeeddd and there was no final resolution for the other characters!!" IE bitch whine bitch complain whine..... at least the damn thing sown up most lose ends and was not a complete ass raping ending like on sub par anime such as Efag...er...Eva,Basilisk or even Ninja scroll.

    HEY HEY HEY .... whatever.
    her death was just so fucking pointless .....
    but then again, the entire show was based on random shit happening exclusively for the purpose of other shit happening randomly without any clear purpose or reason.
    anyways ... BUT THAT WAS TO MUCH!
    you don't go making a story about super-ass-raping-bitches raping serious ass saving somebody in the process, to just kill that person and making it a HAPPY ENDING!!!
    and now shut it, fools. ... i must forget of ever having known this awesome show.
    if i need to make the sacrifice of watching k-on to accomplish this almost impossible feat, so be it!

    This show is overrated. Watched the first four episodes, there are absolutely no character developments, just a bunch of random events. On episode four, they were supposed to go practice, but ended up playing for the whole episode, wtf? ...

    There are actually some character developtments in K-ON!; Suwa/Kawa-chan revealing her yandere side, Mio overcoming her timidness, Yui showing the others that she got The Skill despite being a n00b, Ritsu's...... er...., and Mugi slowly exposing herself as a closet lesbian... i think.

    The problem is these haters are overexpecting something extreme on an SOL comedy series. Seriously, what are you guys expecting anyway? Yui transforming into some sort of white skinned female giant? Mio getting automail limbs after a failed attempt of transmuting her broken bass guitar? Ritsu confessed that she has a brain tumour and only can live 3 more years (typical korean drama reference)? Mugi trying hard to be a crybaby lonely Mary Sue..?

    Mio is only significant taken in the context of Ritsu, just like how Mikuru is of no significance without Haruhi.

    its not really the same generic fodder...or if it is, its Grade A fodder. it does stand apart as it is far more intriguing than some other SOLs
