Is the music in K-on actually good?

I think it's fucking amazing. Everything sounds like it's being composed by graduates holding music theory degrees rather than high schoolers killing time but it just sounds so good I don't care. It's not just good compared to crappy cute girl music like locodol. I actually want to hear my heart is a stapler or U&I once in a while.

It is, if you find Alvin and the Chipmunks good.

There are fewer attempts to sing in English so it is automatically better than [email protected]

Still needs a hefty amount of accent reduction courses to unfuck the end of Go Go Maniac, though, jesus christ

I found the K-on music to be a bit disappointing. Most of the songs are pretty boring. However, I absolutely loved the gohan song and listened to it for hours every day for weeks, and there are some other good songs too. But overall, the songs are forgettable.

imo the songs range from annoying to quite good, with most being forgettable. fuwa fuwa time has an irritatingly boring power chord hook matched by an even more irritating vocal

but my love is a stapler is a great composition (why they were able to effectively use a jazz alt version of it to open S2) with a major-scale guitar hook that 90s indie bands would have been happy to write. i like that one a lot.

The K-On songs are fun to listen to if they are remixed but other than that I'd agree. They don't hold up alone very well with the exception of a few.

Noah Gomez

Meh Yui voice grew on me. From the musical standpoint neither Yui or Mio are good singers one because she sounds like a child and the other sounds like any other Jpop singer but after watching the show I have no problem listen to them often.

Parker Mitchell

Provably not. The musical content in K-on is minimal. The show is mostly a SOL with lighthearted comedy. If watch it for the music you are going to be disappointed.

Christian Rogers
Christian Rogers

You very well might like the show, but it won't be because of the music.

Brody Morales
Brody Morales

Nah. They actually play music, they don't fight and get chased by the mafia. They don't have swimming lessons either. It's mostly about music.

So I strongly suspect you will not enjoy it in the least.

It's alright, Beck has much better music.

About twice as much as the fucbois in Beck did anyway.

No they don't.

William Perez

Yeah they did. There's not a single episode in K-On without them playing.
I can remember only a handful of Beck episodes involving music. Most of it was teen drama and lol so randumb bs.
Beck is probably in my top 10 worst anime I've watched too I pretty much only remember it because it was so much worse than the manga.

But all of the teen drama is related to music.
Saying that there's more music in k-On because they "play more" (not true, by the way) is retarded, when music is a fundamental part in the plot and character interactions/motivations of Beck, while k-On is just a SoL.
I highly doubt they play more in k-On anyway, Beck starts slow until they get into the band, from then onwards it gets much more focused.

Chase Kelly

I've watched both shows.
k-On! is a SoL with cute girls, it's a show about the characters and their interactions, not music.
Beck is about the struggles of a rock band, music is not a tangential subject to the plot, it forms the core of it.

Elijah Rodriguez

To be fair Beck expends way too much time being melodramatic.

Beck is about the struggles of a rock band,
No. Beck is about the struggle of a bunch of hipster teenagers who could have had a much easier entrance into a music career if they didn't insist on being "underground".
It's basically the story of every shitty punk band either.

There's also quite a significant question as to whether punk is even music. I've personally never considered it as such.

Perhaps you should watch the show sometime namefag-kun.
That way you could also criticize it instead of making up shit.

I liked the Crazy song but that was pretty much it.

Jackson Bell
Jackson Bell

yeah i agree. i actually prefer that they sound unexceptional while watching the anime. it makes the band more believable. but yui chirping "fuwa fuwa TI-IME" over and over does her voice no favors...other songs i think she can handle ok

Julian Miller
Julian Miller

mostly about music
Did you even fucking watch it? They played an actual song like, what, twice? Most of the show was just Yui's autism.

Ryder Walker

Is it good by anime standards? Yes, very. Is it good like normal music is good? No.

Brayden Phillips
Brayden Phillips

Normal music is bad though. It's even more simplistic and not kawaii at all. Anime music regularly surpasses it.

Lucas Butler
Lucas Butler

Are you taking every single music that's not from anime and lumping it under "normal music"?
Because that makes whatever comparison you want to make meaningless.
If you meant regular pop/rock music that could get played on a radio, there's not really much difference between anime music and that.

It's not good at all and any high schooler can play it. You can even play the 4 instrument partition of don't say lazy on a single guitar (and I'm not even good).

On the other side, the musics are perfect for the anime and fit perfectly every scene and character devellopment. The lyrics are also glorious, sometimes even with double meaning in the sentences. K-on is truely a masterpiece.

I meant "music that's produced for a moe anime" vs. music that's produced out of passion.

The music in K-On is amazing and very enjoyable. I often find myself humming one of their songs. I'm glad I got to live in the age when K-On! existed.

Joseph Ramirez

Bass + Guitar + Piano. My bad, it's 3. The partitions of k-on songs are so easy with 1 instrument you have to play several.

Ian Cook

Wasn't Mio the first that singed Fuwa Fuwa Time? But yea is better that they are not exceptional in fact no one consider them pros Azusa even says that there are plenty of bands better than HTT (she still was attracted to the chemistry of the band) but they are not bad either, they ok for what they are, a highschool band. They even acknowledge that in the opening "even if the music is bad, or the lyrics aren't great I want to deliver my soul with all my hearth" I disagreed about the lyrics though, some of the songs describe events or how the character feel very well.

I have mixed feelings for Yui's voice the manga describes her as a good singer but the anime gives her a cutesy voice but at the same time I think her voice fits her personality very well the same goes for Ritsu, I really like her voice even if is not great for singing. In the end the show made us care so much for them that even a bit of drama broke our hearts. If you think it about the events of ep 20 are in fact not a big deal but because we grew attached to them we were able to empathize with them and feel their sadness at the time. So is not surprising that we like to hear them sing not because of the music but because of the ones playing are important to us.

To be honest I am still surprised about how much I end up loving this show.

Mugi best voice.

Leo Lewis

you are ignoring the verse where the guitar does a lead break, the many keyboard and bass fills, the guitar's palm-muted rhythm on the "heavy" hook, and the fact that you flat out can't simulate the timbres of one instrument on the other

also, dude, this is pop music. and the ED k-on songs go through many more section changes and feature more interesting rhythms than a lot of other pop stuff

Nolan Johnson

True, Lazy is one of the few songs in the show that could stand on its own as a musical achievement.
