K-ON Second Season Greenlit!

K ON S2 Small

Who says there aren’t any surprises at the end of the year? At the conclusion of the K-ON “Let’s Go!” live concert in Yokohama yesterday, an announcement was made for a second season of the ever-so-popular light music anime. The official website has already been updated to confirm what attendees of the live event found out, along with an image of Yui looking inconspicuously over her shoulder.

While the thought of a sequel in the near future never really crossed my mind, it was only a matter of time given the original’s popularity. It’s safe to say there’s already one series on my list that’s a guaranteed watch next year. I can already picture the new opening and ending themes (whatever they may be) taking the Internet air waves by storm. Speaking of which, I’d love to see what went down at that live concert.

Anyone else looking forward to seeing more of Yui, Mio, Ritsu, Mugi, and Azusa in the new year?

    First! I’m honestly surprised to hear this!

  • December 31, 2009 at 1:10 amichi

    MORE MOEBLOB? NOOOOOOO!

  • December 31, 2009 at 1:34 amSyllen

    im more interested in the concert

  • December 31, 2009 at 1:40 amdmo

    I see people hating on this and I can’t understand why (apparently people thinks a deep plot = overall enjoyability).
    Except for the extra episode, the rest of the series was great; I’ll be all over this once it comes out.

  • December 31, 2009 at 1:51 amskyhack

    Love K-On!

    Gitah!! Azu-nyan!!

  • December 31, 2009 at 2:01 amPhil Collins

    Yeah, I got hyped last time Kyo-Ani announced a sequel and we remember how that went.

    I thought the new op/eds and ensuing dance numbers would take the internet + japan by storm too, and that didn’t happen either. I’m not getting hyped, it’ll make the disappointment that much easier to gloss over.

  • December 31, 2009 at 2:03 amAlec

    to me this anime isnt anything special, but il watch it just 4 d sake of watching it…

    MIO!!!!!!

  • December 31, 2009 at 2:35 amSteve Keys

    Yuck.

  • December 31, 2009 at 2:49 amKinny Riddle

    Firstly, to all you haters: Despair and then piss off. Life’s too short for you guys to be spending time hating on one series.

    Now, that news certainly came far earlier than I would expect, I didn’t think the second season would have come until another year at least. But if it’s commissioned for 12-13 episodes, I think there’ll just be enough manga material, plus more of Kyo-Ani’s “original meddling”, for better or for worse, to cover the second series.

  • December 31, 2009 at 2:55 amblogreader

    awesome!!!!!!!!!

  • December 31, 2009 at 2:55 amprox

    I wish they would do a sequel to Lucky Star first since the manga has a ton of material for them to use. I loved K-on! but it feels too soon and I can’t imagine them doing as much as they did with the first season.

  • December 31, 2009 at 3:05 amSalty

    Oh yezzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • December 31, 2009 at 3:18 amHudson

    I would have rather had heard an announcement of a season 2of Lucky Star, but this is a happy announcement to look forward to.

  • December 31, 2009 at 3:24 amJKR

    Sweet!

  • December 31, 2009 at 4:03 amXiedrin

    While I’m glad for more K-ON!, I really wish KyoAni would get back to Full Metal Panic…

  • December 31, 2009 at 4:31 ambobara

    I wholeheartedly agree! Where’s the long overdue FMP continuation??

  • December 31, 2009 at 4:31 amSean

    plz dont let jaalin blog this series -_- all he did was bitch about the first season and id like to see some actual opinions on the series from someone who actually enjoyed the “slice of life” style it had.

  • December 31, 2009 at 4:32 amZedius

    Yay, melting into a puddle while watching the cuteness of K-ON! has definitely become a guilty pleasure of mine. I have always had a soft spot in my heart for music-themed animes like Beck and Macross. K-ON! is no different!

  • December 31, 2009 at 4:32 amBROOKLYN otaku

    AHAHAHAHAHAH!!! Steve Keys YOU BASTARD!!! u stole mine!!! so i guess I’ll reiterate and say
    DOUBLE YUCK!!

  • December 31, 2009 at 4:40 amZedius

    @Sean

    Jaalin was pretty much right on many points especially those pertaining to originality. It’s basically the same over arching story over and over again. I mean last season we had, I think, 3 retreat episodes? However, I still love the cute moments that make the series quite unique.

    Interest wise, Divine will probably enjoy blogging this series the most. But Jaalin’s screen-cap text captions are hilarious, I wish he text-captioned every series blogged here.

  • December 31, 2009 at 5:01 amSteph.

    I’d honestly love it if Jaalin were to blog the second season. I’m sorry but his captions were funny as hell. I mean really, would their really be much to say about an episode of k-on? No. No there wouldn’t be.
    Moving along, I’m also looking forward to the second season. It was a fun show and I quite enjoyed it (to my surprise). More Mugi would be good<33

  • December 31, 2009 at 5:16 amNing

    YEEEAAAARRRSSHHHHHHH!

  • December 31, 2009 at 5:44 amFlameStrike

    Eh I was hoping for something along the lines of Little Busters! but I suppose this will have to do.

    Anyway, Azu-nyan!!!!!

  • December 31, 2009 at 6:23 amdivine

    Jaalin still hasn’t decided to pop his head in anywhere or let us know he’s still alive, so maybe this will bait him out.

    As for screencap comments, I did it for Nyan Koi episode three, but either people didn’t notice or didn’t care so I didn’t bother keeping it up. -_-

  • December 31, 2009 at 6:53 ammegalith

    YesNo for me….

    YES! We’re getting a second season….

    NO! Where the hell are the key adaptations? T__________T

    I’m seriously waiting for my Planetarian OVA adaptation….. Not to mention some are waiting for Little Busters!

  • December 31, 2009 at 7:41 amblinx01

    Initial reaction “FFS. Not more of this tripe that sums up why the current anime market is so stagnanted.”
    On the other hand, it can’t be much worse than Haruhi season 2, so… whatever… lol

  • December 31, 2009 at 7:41 amKevz

    woot!! can’t wait!!!

  • December 31, 2009 at 8:24 amSplash

    Hopefully they have more music this season. For a show about 4 girls forming a band it seemed to be really weak on the music playing. I would love to see the 2nd season end with them actually playing at Budokon.

  • December 31, 2009 at 9:02 amstarss

    Ha.

    What I’m looking forward to is JAALIN FINALLY CREEPING OUT OF THAT COMA AND POST SOMETHING, DAMMIT!!!

  • December 31, 2009 at 9:48 amShuffleness

    *Strings a Chord* K-ON!!! I’d love to see a new season, the first one was humourous and soo cute; even though i’m not really a fan of moe anything lol

  • December 31, 2009 at 10:36 amSarusta

    Best. New Year’s Present. Ever.

  • December 31, 2009 at 11:06 amMike

    Definitely the best news I heard this yr consider only 13 hrs left before 1/1/10 XD

  • December 31, 2009 at 12:59 pmSteelman

    Urgh. I must say so far I much preferred Kyoani’s adaptation of Key’s visual novels rather then the MoeBlob shows (albeit Lucky Star has been quite entertaining). They really need to animate Little Busters…

  • December 31, 2009 at 1:28 pmSpaxey

    I’m not surprised. Kyo-Ani won’t waste a cash cow like this.

  • December 31, 2009 at 1:36 pmJaysus

    I prefer my moeblob shows to involve mahjong and stuffed penguins.

  • December 31, 2009 at 2:56 pmFeenix

    At least i live in America and not Japan. I can watch it if i feel like it and not have to worry about running into crap loads of promotional material in between

  • December 31, 2009 at 3:03 pmnagi

    yes i can’t waittt ! :P
    i love K-on!
    MIO FTW!

  • December 31, 2009 at 3:27 pmSiege

    OMG BRING ME MOE UI YUI PLZ.

  • December 31, 2009 at 3:50 pmLero

    Its surprise…but a bad one D-:

  • December 31, 2009 at 4:10 pmanayansee

    ooh yyeaah! :D

  • December 31, 2009 at 5:40 pmchris

    I hate myself for watching this series but the Moe power is too great to resist.

  • December 31, 2009 at 6:28 pmMOE JA NAI

    K-ON IS ONE OF THE BEST ANIMES IN 2009!!!!

  • December 31, 2009 at 9:24 pmCHIBI

    Nice. BLOG THIS GUARANTEED.

  • December 31, 2009 at 10:11 pmbluth

    Why do we need this? Why do we need another moeshit show? Don’t we have enough? Would it kill everyone to have stuff of substance? Is there any point to this?

    My god anime is dying.

  • December 31, 2009 at 10:11 pmrazgriz

    I expected as much. Azusa had too little airtime during the first. Plus, the manga’s far from finished as far as I’m reading it. I’m still in chapter 42 and still makes me ROFL.

    There better be fillers this time if they want to make it longer. The first sticks way too much on the manga like Cling Wrap.

  • January 1, 2010 at 5:53 amShiroiRyu

    NOOOOOOOOOO !
    I prefer the doujinshi where Mio masturbate herself and she thought to a real boyfriend. :]

  • January 1, 2010 at 11:54 amYasuragi

    @Divine, I dont know if it’s the new image system that pops up or not, but I moused over, waited, and all I got was the magnifier. I use firefox, maybe that’s why? I love captions though too.

    I was never a big fan of K-ON, the are, as many say, MOEBLOBS. But if people enjoy it, let them have it, right?

  • January 1, 2010 at 11:57 amSAGO

    IT’S THE BLOB!!!

    The moeblob!

  • January 1, 2010 at 1:23 pmDMZ

    How is it there is so many people praising this show? One of the earlier comments said it had “deep plot”. Are you kidding me? This show was horrid and I only managed to watch about 5-6 episodes before I got so disgusted by it. The main character goes from have 0 skill to awesome IN BETWEEN EPISODES. That’s not deep plot, it’s horribad writing. Try watching some real shows for once, this crap is destroying anime and it’s sad that so many people are fueling it.

  • January 1, 2010 at 1:30 pmSkiks

    I will agree the plot in this show isn’t deep at all. It’s entertaining to watch though as Yui is one of those amazing geniuses. Whether you like to believe it or not there are people like Yui who have zero skill yet manage to have an amazing talent. The whole “story” if you wanna put story in this is Yui finding something to put her all into. As you noticed beforehand she did absolutely nothing but finally found a drive to do something other then laze around.
    But really it’s a show made to to just watch without using your brain too much. Is it that horrible to watch something like this these days?

  • January 1, 2010 at 4:48 pmSyaoran Li

    Of course I’m looking forward to that sequel, more than anythign in this year, except for the nanoha, fate/Stay Night and Gundam 00 movies. Wow, what a wonderful year will be.

  • January 1, 2010 at 7:46 pmdivine

    Yasuragi:
    The new image system requires you to actually click on the full-size image to see the caption. However, you can quickly scroll through the images by using the up/down or left/right arrow keys afterward.

  • January 2, 2010 at 6:57 amAnimeniac

    wow just what my cousin’s friends have said… he said “they will animate a second season” which is mor eof a possible lie… but i didnt expect that it came out true

  • January 2, 2010 at 8:22 amninjikiran

    The first series had so much potential that was kind of squandered on cheap filler(whether it is following a manga or not it started to grow a little stale by the final episode, with the final being kind of a let down). I am interested in season 2 though, and I hope they put a little bit more creativity and longevity into it. I really like the light hearted silliness with some development into their band. Season one had little to do with the actual band.

  • January 2, 2010 at 5:05 pmbrianleung8912

    not really looking forward to it (never really expected a second season tbh), cant look forward to something i thought dont exist i guess… I will definitely be watching tho :)

  • January 2, 2010 at 10:17 pmYasuragi

    @divine, Ah! I see. I was unaware you had to click on the picture to read the caption. Thank you for the info.

  • January 3, 2010 at 1:55 amAnimeniac

    so. if jaalin wont “pop” his head out err show, who will blog this? divine? omni? hmmm… interesting… divine’s own point of view on moe-ness gehehehehe a must see…

  • January 3, 2010 at 2:06 pmbigfire

    I just wish we can get the 2nd and 3rd season of Bakemonogatari. Ok, we might only have enough material for a 18 episodes 2nd season…

  • January 3, 2010 at 8:54 pmZetsuboushita

    :O OHMAHGAW YE YEEEEE
    haha on to Budokan!!!

  • January 4, 2010 at 2:46 amKizami

    wonder if they’ll atually animate budoukan….that would be a sight for anime.
    and it doesnt take a good plot to make a good anime.To pull of a “daily-life” style of anime deserves credit,to pull it off a second time…..we’ll see ^^

  • January 6, 2010 at 8:57 amElla

    Oh. My. God.
    YES!!!!!!!
    More K-ON!
    I cannot wait for the second season!!

  • January 6, 2010 at 9:58 pmconyo985

    I’m excited yet not fully excited. Because this is from Kyoto Animation and they did not do a good job at making a 2nd season for one of their popular franchise, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. I hope they’re not going to pull any of those stupid stunts in the 2nd Season of K-ON!

  • January 7, 2010 at 7:34 amAkane

    Im very glad to hear this, it may be moe, otaku crap to sum ppl but..well, i like moe otaku stuff so..meh. Roll on second season ^_^

  • January 7, 2010 at 10:00 pmMio
