Several months after their New Years' live performance, the light music club has returned to Sakura High for a new school year. Now seniors in Sawa-chan's homeroom class, Yui, Mio, Ritsu and Mugi commence their final year as high school students. While many others would fret about their entrance examinations, the Keion Bu have more important things on their minds, be it shopping for shelves, cleaning out the storage room or that age old problem of trying to recruit new members. But while there's music, snacks and school trips aplenty, one question still remains... will the girls be able to leave their mark on the school before they graduate?

Story I haven't watched any other music school life anime so this is all new to me.  The story is really basic:  a bunch of high schoolers enjoying their time by relaxing and having some fun with music.  The music aspect does play a lesser part than the previous season though.  However, this season is paced a lot better as the previous one felt rushed to me.  It became more of a school life anime rather than a music anime. Animation Loved it all.  Really like the character designs.  It's textbook moe.  Normally I haven't really shown any preference but this worked for me.  Plus Yui and Ritsu had nice thick thighs.  Me likey!  Colors are nice as the dark colors work well with the bright.  The underappreciated part is the attention to detail in small intricate movements.  It's always a nice touch you won't notice the first time around but looking back, you always remember how much attention was brought upon that. Sound One weird thing is that Mio sounded like a young boy but I got over it.  I love all their voices equally.  They all go well with their personality.  Ritsu's voice loud and cheerful.  Mio's voice is quiet, soft, and soothing.  Yui's voice is airy and full of uncertainty.  Mugi's is also soft like Mio's, gets energetic Ritsu's, and dreamy like Yui's.  Azusa's is stern yet so adorable.  This is a music anime so I expect the music to be great.  Opening was kinda annoying because it's like a song on fast forward.  The songs they played were really likeable and very addicting.  Their singing voices are heaven to me! Characters Something about each character made me love each and every one of them.  Yui is technically the main character but everyone else feels just as special.  Like I said before, there's unlimited charm with each and every character.  Each have shown their strong side and vulnerable side very well without being too much.   Overall The one word that comes to mind about this show is "charming".  There's this impalpable quality that made me just love this show.  Maybe it's the characters, the art style, or some hidden voodoo magic.  All I know is that I just love it!  I knew I loved it when I had a giant ball of feels at the last episode.

Note: the finale is episode 24. Episodes 25 and 26 are ‘extras’, set during the timeline before episodes 23 and 24. I wanted to point this out to future viewers as I didn’t enjoy the realisation that the show was reaching a conclusion as I was watching and earlier than I expected!Eps 25 and 26 can be viewed chronologically with the rest of the series (after ep 21, before ep 23) but they work well thematically, as a kind of, second ending.  K-On! season 1 covers two years in 13 episodes. Season 2 covers senior year (for Yui, Rin, Mio and Mugi) in 26 episodes. The show uses the increased time to expand its cast and explore its characters, primary and secondary – this is done with some characters better than others but is mostly successful. With the first season, the focus was on the development of the club and goals of the group as a band and as musicians. In the second season the club is still central but the focus shifts slightly to school life. Each episode has a strong focus and consistently delivers humour and the infectious, enthusiastic K-On tone. Only occasionally dragging, the episodes perhaps vary in quality/enjoyment based on activity or character focus. The second half of this season takes us through the steps of senior year. The intimidating future of life after high school - separation, growing up - has a gently looming presence over the group of friends, which builds to an affecting conclusion.  K-On detractors may claim the show isn’t really about music. But the reality is that practice is boring and song-writing frustrating, depictions of both are used sparingly. The unpretentious and fierce passion for music felt by the characters and creators is clear and evident through the excellent songs within the show and performed in the opening and closing titles.  Season 2 builds on the enthusiasm and sweetness of season 1 to deliver more of the same and then some.

I am not perfect at english because i am german. I apolgize..   First, you will not notice that they did even split up the anime in two seasons. I just realized it after sombody told me. The story is very well made and there are no gaps in them that will force you to make up your own mind. Well HTT (Hokago Tea Time = After School Tea Time) still have thier old members. It is the last year for Mio, Ritsu, Mugi and Yui until they graduate. Azusa still leaves open a huge gap, which is making me to wait eagerly for the new movie of K-on!! The story itself is getting 10/10 because they did melt together both parts perfectly! The animation looks very decent and is not too extreme but not too stiff. They walk normally and it is not really choppy. Looking "unreal" is something i can't say here. In other animes some things really look unreal! It is getting 9.5/10 points. The sound, one of the most important things in K-On!!, is awesome. The music they play on thier performances are great! The openings and endings have nice music in them too. But the voice actors did an awesome job here. It sounds not so plain or boring and brings in a lot of life in a few situations. Thier higher-pitch voices are just like in other animes too, cute! The Sound is getting 10/10 points! Lets scoot over to the character section. The design of them are each totally different and spice up the anime. You can see differences in skin colour for example. Eyes, hair and other small changes makes each of the characters special. I seen animes that don't have such small details in them, characters there have all the same skin colour for example. They did a great work right here, which is the reason they are getting 10/10 points awarded! After all that, i came to the desicion to rate it 9.5/10 as overall rating. I really enjoyed every bit of that anime and will defently watch the movie / next season and stuff coming after it. Give it a shot, you will not regret it!
