K-ON! 8: Why K-ON Won’t Ever Totally Suck

I’m not going to lie, I like K-ON. But, I also like to make fun of it, because let’s face it, it’s kind of dumb. Just look at this:

This is pretty fuckin dumb.

This is pretty dumb.

Not only is that the worst promotional idea for a club ever, but look at that chicken. Nice eyes you stupid chicken. However, no matter how retarded K-ON sometimes gets, it will never completely suck, and I have determined why from this episode.

Music. The music, I’m not going to lie, is good. I enjoy the music of the light music club. I mean, the OP and ED are good, catchy songs, and the songs that they play in the episodes are good, catchy songs.

They preform a song called, I Love Staples………or something like that…………My Love is a Staple? Maybe? I really can’t remember what it’s called. I could go back and look, but that would take effort. Either way, the song was good, but Mio needs to get over her fear of singing, because Yui’s voice is really annoying, while Mio can fuckin sing.

So, what else:

Look, it's Mio with a different hair style.

Look, it's Mio with a different hair style.

Oh wait, that’s not Mio, that’s some random ass girl (Nakano Azusa), who, as the episode ended, joins the music club. I have also decided that the best character in this show is Ritsu.

Ritsu is just too cool for school.

Ritsu wins out over Sawa-Sensei because Sawa-Sensei doesn’t get enough air time, and when she does, her personality is way too stable. I need the skitso Sawako that I was introduced to! That (episode 5) was still the best episode, and I doubt a better one will ever come by. By the way, the most attractive person is:

This Guitar

This Guitar

Okay, so it’s not really a person. But the whole reason behind why I started watching K-ON in the first place was because the guitar looked cool. Yea, it doesn’t take much for me to watch a show.

That being said, as of right now, I like the way that K-ON is headed, with it’s growing number of performances and episodes that are actually music-related, instead of random bullshit like “mid terms” or something.

Pandora Hearts 8: All About Alice

Have I ever said that Alice is the best character of Spring 09? In case you never noticed. Yes. Yes I have. This whole post looks at why I’m completely jumping on driving the bandwagon that is Alice.

Exhibit #1: Don’t Wake Alice

Alice wakes up. Like anyone, she's probably fuckin tired. I know that when I wake up I'm completely out of it.

This fuckin dude pops out from under her bed of all places. I shouldn't say "pop" I should say he slides out. Needless to say, it's too early for that bullshit.

Alice looks down and sort of notices this jack ass, but she just woke up, so it doesn't really register.

Alice takes a closer look at this homo, and realized that he's a jackass.

Gil (Raven) in all of his stupidness, didn't make the room Alice-proof, and now this happens.

Thus, Break, the jack-ass, arrives at Gil’s house (the way he leaves is even stranger). So how does Alice act while he’s there?

Exhibit #2: Dynamic Personality Traits

Alice rules

Alice still rules.

And her personality can change even more:

Hungry? Why wait? Grab a Flower.

Hungry? Why wait? Grab a Flower.

Alice is pretty much every type of character rolled into one. You could compare her to Mio from K-ON in that sense, but unlike Mio, where they kind of just forced a bunch of moe, aggressiveness, and scaredness together with no real plan or thought process (creating a shitty character), they succeed tremendously with Alice, as everything seems to fit perfectly together. Basically:

Alice > Mio

(in this case, “>” stands for, completely kicks the ass of and rapes)

Errr…I don’t know how I got so off-subject as to come up with the need to announce that Alice > Mio, especially since this was supposed to be about personality traits or something, but whatever. It happened.

Anyway, as far as the actual episode was concerned, it was, of course, awesome, not only because Alice was in it, but also because we learned what the Will of the Abyss is (for real this time) and what Oz’s role is. Apparently Oz has the power to control the Abyss. I can already tell that this is going to affect his seal. In my opinion (which is always correct….unless it’s wrong), Oz is going to run out of time and be sent to the Abyss, but no big deal, because he can control it. Basically:

The Abyss = The Matrix

and

Oz = Neo

In other words, Oz can control the abyss like Neo can control the Matrix. But Oz just doesn’t know how yet. Maybe I’m completely wrong about this episode, but that’s what I got out of it…….Alice rules.
