The Sky’s the Limit for K-ON!! Plagiarism

clouds-of-k-on-1
clouds-of-k-on-2

Some remarkable similarities in certain scenes from K-ON! and their apparent real world counterparts have been discovered, most notably these suspiciously similar cumulo-nimbus cloud formations.

This bucolic scene is also being treated with suspicion:

rural-k-on-1
rural-k-on-2

Whether this constitutes coincidence, innocent referencing or diabolical Simmonsing is perhaps in the eye of the beholder – K-ON! already has a reputation for consisting almost entirely of real world objects.

In any case, rather more troubling than any lingering concerns about copyright is just how 2ch manages to find these pictures…
