- K-On!, ep04
I'm of two minds of this show. One part of me likes it quite a bit... it's fluffy entertainment that requires no effort whatsoever from the watcher. The other part, however, is just annoyed by it all. In a way, it reminds me of the other show Kyoto Animation made in this style, Lucky Star. The problem is that after the first three episodes, LS took off like a SR-71 kicking in the afterburners and became something special. K-On! is showing no signs of doing so after four.
Sure, if you like slice-of-life shows, it's worth watching, but it just feels like there could be so much more here. I'll keep up with it, but I'm not holding my breath waiting for "magic time".

Yes, it appears that they've got a savant on their hands... which was telegraphed so clearly in ep03, it may as well been in clear English with the header "AF needs water".
But that's not my point. Maybe the first time they play together, the show will zoom into the stratosphere, but for a show about a music club, there's been practically no music played. *shrug* I'm just saying that it's falling flat for me, and it shouldn't be... for all intents and purposes, I'm the bleedin' target audience for this show, for heaven's sake.
