I Told You Mio Was The Better Singer


I probably should’ve switched the pictures, but I was too busy jamming out to Mio’s Fuu Fuu

Those who were following my K-ON! posts know that I’m a firm believer that our swishy-haired queen of moe moe kyun is a vastly superior singer than that moe blob closet guitar genius, who is cute nonetheless but should probably relinquish the mic. It was tough to make the comparison before because they rarely sang the same song – Fuwa Fuwa Time was the only one where we got a full version of both Mio and Yui, and that was a harder comparison to make cuz the song is so damn cutesy it seemed to be written exclusively for that anime-sounding Yui voice. We also got a bit of Hotchkiss, when Mio bailed Yui out in the beginning of the song – and sounded much better, I might add.

Well, here we go, side-by-side comparisons of our two songstresses – just-released “K-ON! Gekichuka Shu” contains two discs – the “Studio Mix” and the “Live Mix” – the studio mix has Yui crooning her way through the band’s four songs, while the live mix has the extended versions of the band’s live performances, which usually involves Mio. The above song is “Fude Pen, Booru Pen” (Brush Pen, Ballpoint Pen) from episode 12.

My favorite K-ON! song is still the B-track on the ED single, but that aside, what do you think?

    k on sucks , yui is a stupid air head and the girls of k on are a copy of the girls of lucky star and k on was the most boring anime of all the time

    Isn’t it obvious. Mio sings a LOT better but Yui’s voice is nice to listen to as well.

    Especially for those uber-moe and loli fans.

    Completely and utterly agree. Yui’s voice works sometimes, but Mio is just much stronger. Relects nothing about their speaking parts though because both of them suit their parts well.
