K-ON! Goes To London – “Hopefully They Won’t Be Mugged!”

k-on-in-london-1.jpg

The upcoming K-ON! movie has been revealed as taking place in London, an unfortunate choice of setting in light of recent events.

The salient details about the movie are that the girls resolve to go on a post-graduation trip to London, taking Azunyan along with them.

The movie itself opens in December, in the form of a December roadshow with complicated and (so far) completely sold out ticket arrangements.

Kyoto Animation are probably cursing themselves for not picking Paris or New York at this stage:

“If Azusa is going at least take Ui!”

“London!? Are they going to a private university? What scum…”

“Mugi’s doubtless paying for them all, isn’t she?”

“Will they be going here then?”

“In the world of K-ON! there are no men, so in their UK nothing like that happens.”

“K-ON! is amazing!”

“AHAHAHA”

Fans will doubtless be hoping the girls escape being mugged and maimed by the capital’s friendly inhabitants…

    As someone who lives in the UK, why the hell would they want to come to this hellhole?

    There are hundreds of better places in the world to visit, and the UK isn't one of them.

    But setting the film in a hellhole builds dramatic tension.

    While they're at it they should also visit Iraq, North Korea, or Somalia, that'll really make the film interesting...

    Why not? They can use their musical instrument as self defense weapon like a guitar to whack those muggers and drum set that include a cymbals with sharp edge(like a shuriken) their ultimate weapon is a sonic blast of 150 decibels of pure noise like the one use in Somalian pirate.

    Jesus, looks like the South Bronx in the 70s and 80s.

    Old Winston must be spinning in his grave to see the UK sunk so low. Definitely not "Their Finest Hour".

    My condolences Brits. :(

    There's a bunch of "nice" places to visit when traveling to another country, but to someone who's been living there all his life, such places probably don't look as nice, just "ordinary".

    1. Insanely greedy prices (One 500ml bottle of Coca-Cola for £1.50; fuck off.)
    2. Awful food
    3. Horrible people (E.g. The guy who got mugged by those 'samaritans') or just the current generation of inbread morons in general.
    4. While the countryside is nice, everywhere in the UK seems so run down or depressing. (http://www.lsh.co.uk/images/cms/Bracknell%20College%281%29.jpg [http://www.lsh.co.uk/images/cms/Bracknell College(1).jpg])

    Anon, i fucking love you for citing bracknell
    i drove through there once low on petrol, had to stop, it was like traveling back 30 years except with more kappa tracksuits and white trash that think they're Jamaican.
    The best thing about the place was two huge abandoned office towers, standing like tombstones over a dead town.

    Well maybe if Simon wasn't so hilariously bad at Magicka... Just sayin'. There's being "not-so-good" and that's understandable. Then there's being "the saboteur" and that's inexcusable.

    No, but then, the Beatles weren't the first rock band, so it's really a moot point here.

    Rock was a decade before the Beatles, with people like Elvis Presley, and B.B. King(?). U.S.A. invented rock (and roll) music.

    Bullshit. There were punk bands in Detroit in 72. Punk may have gotten its first mainstream press out of England but it was invented in America.

    K-On! isn't real. The London that they go to is like the Paris in _Amelie_, a nice, pretty place full of helpful, polite people.

    Um... have you actually WATCHED Amelie? Nearly everyone is a jerk. It's only through Amelie's quirky kindness that SOME of the characters gain a small measure of happiness.

    Wow, as a Brit I feel honoured by this news! Usually the only foreign material Japan gets is America. So London really is the only other English speaking choice tbh. Besides Japan likes cliche and we've got plenty of landmarks for them to draw.

    Parliament, Big Ben, the Thames, the Underground, Buckingham palace, Abbey road (definitely!), the O2, Trafalgar square, the millennium wheel/bridge.

    Mostly of all though, I'm looking forward to the engrish, which we already got a taster of previously. Should be good fun.

    ....how about New Zealand? we may not have big ass
    features like london's Big Ben and NY's whatever famous buildings. New Zealand is free of a lot big english speaking shit and we have quite a laidback easy going life :) which they would like!

    You must be implying that Sydney would be above New York on the pecking order, which is just stupid.

    Original Anon is right, and it would have been a toss up between NYC and London. What heritage does Sydney have again?

    I agree, I was kinda hoping they'd end up in Finland. Although I guess making them go to London is easier, you have more well known landmarks and stuff...

    On the bright side, now it's London that is gonna suffer from massive otaku march after seeing this movie and going to the places they show in this movie...

    Thats because for the japanese, Europe is only Italia, England and France. And south America is only Brazil, and for the japanese, Brazil is a jungle with monkeys and green monsters. They have a lot of cool places to use in anime and games, but they always choose the same places with the same cliches (the rich french girl who is half japanese, the American girl with big tits, etc etc).
