With the second season of K-ON!! in the can, many of us are already starved for more peppy after-school music. Aki Toyosaki, who is the voice artist of the character Yui Hirasawa, has released two singles over the past year, which is old news.

The links listed below the photos will take you to CD Japan where you can hear forty-five second previews of the songs that Aki and Minako are releasing.
CD Japan’s listings have recently revealed new information about the upcoming K-ON!! single. You can preorder it here.
