K-On!!06 – Oh wow, new materi- just kidding.

The only reason why I can write a review for every episode of K-On!! is that it's so filler-ish I am forced to assume my own meanings and interpretations.

Welcome back to yet another boring interesting episode of K-ON!!. And what do they have in stall for us today?

Nothing but moeblob intellectual musings.

The amount of intelligent, human thoughts have caused me to get a headache. Thus I’ll just review it in point form.

This episode parodies:

  1. The notion of Heaven and Hell
  2. The relationships between the characters
  3. The relationship between the show and the viewer/target audience.

Heaven and Hell

What do I mean ? What do you mean a parody of Heaven and Hell?

Well, it’s generally accepted that the more sins you commit, the likelier you go to Hell to suffer for all eternity.

In the episode, Yui makes a lot of self-conscious remarks about Heaven, even screaming that she’s in Heaven when all she had done was dip her feet in a tub of warm water. (Metaphorical much?)

…but the true, if not unnoticed remark was this:

No, it’s not the remark. It’s the animation style. The art for this scene, actually.

Note. The hair.

Two horns.

On top.

Devil.

Relationship between characters

Everyone loves each other. It’s like some orgy or something. With less sex.

So apparently, after naming Mio’s bass Elizabeth ( ? ) Yui gets Gitah to have a one night stand with Elizabeth. Leading to this relationship map:

Hey, it took me quite a long time to make this.

Yeah .  It’s a parody of its own parody of its parody on human relationships. Try comprehending that.

Relationships between the viewer and the show.

Yes, that’s you – the humble viewer who just decided to watch K-On.

Any sane person should have noticed how almost 98% of the shots are targeted facing the “camera”, so to speak.

Every shot has the person looking at the viewer.

Why?

Let’s see : Yui in Maid outfit : Looking at screen.

Azusa being adorable and whatnot: Looking at screen.

Yui showing her love for her guitars : NOT looking at screen.

It’s obvious what they’re doing – it’s a parody of ronery people who fap to 2d pictures (not that there’s much wrong with that.)

…however that’s not the painful part.

The painful part is knowing that you, being normal, are slowly hypnotised into thinking the characters are talking to YOU- YES YOU- when they speak. They want you to listen, they want to practice music with you, they want to drink tea with you, et cetera ad infinitum. It’s like those Hinako videos, only more subtle.

Soon everyone shall be possessed and sucked into the world of K-On, preparing the way for K-On !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’s legacy.

Indeed, we see that K-On likes to fuck with your mind. Yes. Fuck with your mind . They’re doing it , right now, in your subconsciousness. And there is nothing you can do about it.

    I notice Yui is still to have sex with Azunya (and Elizabeth, but give her time), interesting… This chart could come in handy.

    Totally unrelated to K-ON!!:
    After my bashing of Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou, episode 7 was totally awesome :D! It was as if someone else took over the script and went nuts, almost like an episode of Seikon no Qwaser. Are you still following this one or given up on it?

  2. Valence says:

    Really? Will check out Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou, they really messed it up for the past few episodes. But….like Seikon no Qwaser? What do you mean?

    • biotoxic says:

      All the previous episodes have been quite tame in terms of fan service (well that could be because I’m watching the censored version). But episode 7 went mad and brought the level of ecchi-ness up, even on the censored version.

      • Valence says:

        OMG. I just saw it…

        Anyway, I bet the ‘hero’ becomes the antagonist in the end or something. He looks like some poor knock-off of Megaman ._.

  3. Nopy says:

    Lol, that chart is awesome. Mugi looks like she’s beein around the block ^.^

    I never noticed that the characters were actually looking at the screen, I’ve been too busy reading the subs. It is kinda scary, though, how people can get mesmerized into thinking an anime character is talking to them.

    • Valence says:

      I’m guessing that’s how ronery otaku think ._. or is it because of prejudice from the media..?

      But seriously, they really look straight at the camera too often .I mean , there aren’t much off angle shots when they are talking…

  4. Valence says:

    I suppose so, the media is quite biased against this kind of lifestyle I guess. But some people just make the anime fandom become creepy…

    …especially those who bring their “wives” out in public, in so many photos …*shivers*

  5. Fabrice says:

    Haha yui really loves gitah =)
    lol Muttan is a good name 😄

    anyway good episode, but really this needs more music =/

    I have totally gave up on this. ok not totally. but watching k-on now feels like a chore. I mean liked S1 for it’s music and few live scenes it had, but this. is stupid. lousy/mediocore songs, storys with even thinner plots/ gags. it’s like they expect ot feed off the Moe blob thing so much so that it’s not funny. I will still watch because i have this policy of not dropping anime but trust me its not gonna go down well.

    Btw how is it that Angel beats have more singles than K-ON S2? =/ really. i think that alone speaks volume of how “good” k-on is this season.

    • Valence says:

      Same, I have the same policy =D

      I thinked I watched K-On season 1 mostly for the music.

      Regarding Angel Beats, it’s because K-On S2 has hardly, if not NO music scenes at all so far,if I’m not wrong. Sides, GirlsDeMo have like 5+ songs already, so go figure.
