K Anime Episode 1
K-on! (Keion! "けいおん!") is the anime adaption of Kakifly's manga of the same name, which was produced by Kyoto Animation and aired in Japan between 2009 and 2010 in two seasons. The anime became a world-wide success and allowed the franchise to gain much more depth by highlighting facts that the manga did or could not do.
The anime also introduced real music, partly based on lyrics from the manga but mostly entirely new composition. The music from the anime contains several "Original Soundtracks", "Character Image Songs" for most individual characters and several musical productions by the main band, Ho-Kago Tea Time.
The anime adaptation K-ON!, directed by Naoko Yamada, written by Reiko Yoshida and produced by Kyoto Animation, started airing in Japan at the third of April and ended at the 26th of June 2009 on the television network TBS, as well as on many minor networks. Between the 29th of July 2009 and the 20th January 2010, seven DVD and Blu-ray Disc compilation volumes were released by the Japanese company Pony Canyon. On the 20th of January 2010, an additional original video animation (OVA) episode was released on the final DVD and BD volumes. Each DVD/BD volume contained short extra episodes with the name Ura-On!.
The second season K-On!!, first announced during the Let's Go live concert in Yokohama on the 30th of December 2009, was directed by the same staff as the first season and aired in Japan between the 7th of April and the 28th of September 2010, again mainly on TBS. It was released on nine DVD/BD volumes in total, published between the 30th of July 2010 and the 16th of March 2011. The last volume contained again an additional extra episode (OVA). Like the first season, every volume also contained short extra episodes called Ura-On!!. The Japanese anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks licensed the second season and released it on DVD and Blu-ray in two boxsets, published on the 19th of June and the 28th of August 2012.
Being an adaption of a manga that shows the daily lives of musicians, the anime published many original musical productions, sung by the voice providers (seiyū) of the main characters, Aki Toyosaki (Yui Hirasawa), Yōko Hikasa (Mio Akiyama), Satomi Satō (Ritsu Tainaka), Minako Kotobuki (Tsumugi Kotobuki), Ayana Taketatsu (Azusa Nakano), Madoka Yonezawa (Ui Hirasawa), Chika Fujitō (Nodoka Manabe), Yoriko Nagata (Jun Suzuki) and Asami Sanada (Sawako Yamanaka).
Like (usually) every other anime, each K-ON! episode has an intro and an outro song, called "opening theme" and "ending theme". The first season's opening theme, "Cagayake! GIRLS", was sung by the seiyū of the main cast, Aki Toyosaki, Yōko Hikasa, Satomi Satō and Minako Kotobuki. The season's ending theme is called "Don't Say 'Lazy'" and was sung by the same cast. Both theme singles were released on the 22th of April 2009. The insert song "Fuwa Fuwa Time", which also became the Light Music Club's/Ho-Kago Tea Time's trademark, was released on the 20th of May 2009. Other songs, played at the shown concerts, were gathered together on the album "Ho-Kago Tea Time", which was published on the 22th of July 2009. The single "Maddy Candy", played by Sawako's band Death Devil, was published on the 12th of August 2009.
Following traditional anime trends, each main character was granted with an own unique "Character Image Song", who got published between June and October 2009 (Yui's and Mio's at the 17th of June, Ritsu's, Tsumugi's and Azusa's at the 26th of August and Ui's and Nodoka's at the 21th of October).
Unlike the first season, the second had two opening and two ending themes which were always sung by the main cast, this time including Azusa's seiyū Ayana Taketatsu too. The first 13 episodes used "GO! GO! MANIAC" as the opening and "Listen!!" as the ending theme. From episode 14 onwards, "Utauyo!! MIRACLE" served as the opening and "NO, Thank You!" as the ending theme. On the 28th of April 2010, the first opening and ending theme were published, while the second were both published on the fourth of April 2010.
The anime also had an "Original Soundtrack", who served mostly as background music. The soundtrack of the first season was released on the third of June 2009. The second season mostly used the first soundtrack again, and mixed it with entirely new songs. The second season's soundtrack was released on two CD's, published on the 21th of July and the sixth of October 2010, respectively.

Overall, there are many good reasons for liking and watching this anime, but the one thing that got my attention, was the sheer gorgeousness of the graphics. Every scene, every angle, and every motion is lovingly animated. Colours merge and gleam, and everything has a radiance to it.

The South Korean Netflix anime series was supposed to be released on Friday, November 4th, 2022, at midnight. However, Netflix made the announcement of the delay on Twitter. The post on the Twitter Netflix Anime page was posted on October 31st, 2022, a mere three days before the series was set to stream:
Written by GoRA, a team consisting of seven Light Novel authors, K is an original anime that premiered on October 4, 2012 by GoHands. The anime gained some notice by revealing almost no details about its plot, setting, or genre in promotional materials. It was quickly picked up by both Animax Asia and VIZ Media for simulcasting. A sequel was announced when the last episode aired. In May 2013, the sequel was confirmed to be a movie adaptation, K: Missing Kings, that was released in July 2014. A second season, K: Return of Kings, aired in Fall 2015.
Underestimating Badassery: The clansmen of JUNGLE do this twice in the first episode of Return of Kings. One clansmen attempts to assassinate Kuroh and Neko at the beginning of the episode, and later, he and large group of other JUNGLE clansmen bait HOMRA and SCEPTER 4 into an obvious trap. Unsurprisingly, the trap turns into a Curb-Stomp Battle in HOMRA and SCEPTER 4's favor, and Kuroh and Neko show up no worse for wear at the end to try to interrogate the now depowered assassin.
Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Averted in Episode 1 where Shiro's white hair becomes noticeable enough for a HOMRA member to spot him from a distance and immediately contact the others. Otherwise, it gets played straight by most of the civilians walking around in the city who seem indifferent to the psychic battles that are going on around them.
Wham Line: Episode 5's ending scene. From Episode 7 of Return of Kings:An unknown sanctum has appeared inside the tower. It's a King, sir!
Return of Kings, Episode 8:Fushimi: Fine, I'll be a traitor then.
Wham Episode: Almost every episode in S1 from Episode 6 onward counts as this, but special mention goes to Episode 6 and 11. Episode 6: The motive for HOMRA chasing the Colorless King is elaborated on and Shiro finds that his memories are fake.
Episode 11: The Colorless King is a body surfer and Shiro is a King, The Silver King.
Return of Kings, Episode 8: Iwafune defeats Reisi, and the injury to his resolve massively damages his Sword of Damocles. The Green Clan makes off with the Dresden Slate. And Fushimi resigns from SCEPTER4...and joins JUNGLE.
Return of Kings Episode 12: After several years of turmoil, Misaki starts understanding Saruhiko and the two become friends again. Sukuna is severely injured by Fushimi and Yata and falls into a deep pit, while Iwafune is apparently killed by Munakata causing the tables to turn on the Greens.
Whole Episode Flashback: Episode 6 is mostly about the memories of Tatara Totsuka from the time when Mikoto and Izumo first met him to the moment of his death. Gets very apparent in S2 where almost every episode has flashbacks of the movie or S1.
Wild Card: In-universe the Colorless King is considered to be one. Unlike the other Kings, the abilities of the Colorless King change from king to king, which gives them potential to completely change the balance of power between the other kings.
Wrong Context Magic: Most of the superhuman characters have Charles Atlas Superpowers and/or the ability to spew flames everywhere. Neko's abilities, though, seem very out of place. She can use illusions that affect all five senses, and has the ability to implant or manipulate memories in other people. Her powers are both Played for Laughs and serious usage.
This is something that's generally true of Strains - people who develop supernatural powers seemingly naturally, without becoming a King's clansmen. While clansmen generally obtain powers similar to that of their King, all bets are off for Strains.
You Have to Believe Me!: Yashiro tries to convince Kuroh several times that he is innocent. This also happens in the final episodes when Kuroh tries to convince the clans of the issue surrounding Yashiro
