The idea of a band anime resonates well with me, moreso in a high school setting. To give you a background, my high school was a breeding ground for aspiring musicians, and a good number of students lugged guitars around, playing simple rock songs during their free time (me included). I even belonged to a group of friends where a good half were in the band club.
So, I’m very interested in K-On. These girls aren’t Mary Sue-good, but I want to see their development, not just on the musical level. Being a band is not just about making music, it’s also a support group that’ll give some flavor into your life. It’s something our little protagonist Yui needs, and by the end I hope to see what she’s truly made of.
Difference in musical styles aside, K-On also reminds me of ZONE.
