Here we are at the tail end of the Summer 2010 season, with hardly anything worthwhile to watch. As Bakacast listeners know, we at Project Haruhi are having a hard time finding things to like in the anime we review each week. It’s getting pretty desperate here, such that we no longer care if the flat, uninteresting characters in shows like Highschool of the Dead live or die. Thankfully that is where Working!! comes in. This lifeline of hope was thrown to me by a friend who knew my despair. “This should help! This is moe as we remember!” she said as I sobbed into her arms about my lack of faith in moe. I remember her smile was like a ray of sunshine, boosting my confidence. Happily, she turned out to be bang-on correct. Read on to learn why she was right!
The second season of everybody’s favorite moeblob slice-of-life anime premiers this week. Since about half of our staff loves K-ON!! and half utterly loath it, I’d say this is going to be an interesting spring season here on Project Haruhi. Personally, I’m looking forward to this show; the first season was a lighthearted and enjoyable (if shallow) offering, and there’s no reason to suspect the second season will be any different. How about you, dear readers? Are you excited… or are you planning on hiding in your moe-proof bunkers until this storm blows over?
Incidentally, if you’re so inclined, you can follow the REAL Ritsu on Twitter. She’ll be keeping us up-to-date on the latest K-ON!! news, merchandise and fanart… provided she remembers tweet regularly. I’ll remind Mio to crack the whip on poor Ricchan. Also, a more in-depth discussion of K-ON!! can be found on our forums.
