It’s been like 19 days since the last update and I should break the blog’s inertia with a new column called “A Week in Review”. You could say I’m abandoning the regular format of blogging one show every week (FOR NOW, because I’m LAZY). Instead, I’m just writing about anything that happened the previous week. My ball of crystal predict an un-epic fail from my part considering I’ve been rusty.

Before AnimeNewsNetwork even reports this, twitter led me to the info that K-ON! will have another anime project in 2012 after the movie!! According to K-ON!-related news reporter from my previous blog (AITOTW) and obsessed fan of the show, @Kyonkun, the following image came from a KyoAni event flyer. I got no idea what’s going to be the format for this K-ON!. I also got no idea if the anime will cover the old band in college. We just know that Azu-nyan’s new K-ON club will be involved. Hopefully, more information will be revealed in the near future. Anyway, time to get excited, K-ON! fanboys.
K-On! Oh how I’ve missed you.
I was just wondering to myself what I should do while we wait for Madoka Magica to continue (and I’m in no way impatiently rushing its return considering Japan has much bigger issues to deal with now) when I learned that a 27th episode of K-On!! had been released. Yay!
“I combined the post for the last three [two] episodes of [K-On!!] for artistic and narrative purposes, not because of laziness.” ~ If you don’t learn from the best, then you’ll never become a great anime reviewer.
For the most part, “Extra Episodes” are like throw away episodes: You don’t expect anything important or impactful from them. For the most part, Episode 25 and 26 were just that. But behind all the silliness, there were a few moments in these final episodes that proved to be important in providing closure for all who love K-On.
While there are two confirmed extra episodes to follow Episode 24, this is, in many ways (if not in every way), the end of K-On. And I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get emotional during this episode, and not just because I love this series so deeply, but because as a last episode, it was excellent.
Well someone lied and led me to believe K-On!! would be 26 episodes, but it turns out there’s only 24. Which is okay in a way since I’d originally thought there would only be 13 episodes. It’s also better that they quit while they’re on top, though I’m sure K-On could continue without purpose and still hold a large fan base.
