K-ON!! (2010)


it was the final year of high school for the founding members of Houkago Tea Time (a music club), Yui, Ritsu, Mio, and Tsumugi. together with their junior member Azusa, they spent time after school in the music room enjoying tea and practicing music. seeing the year coming to an end, Azusa struggled to contain her feeling of loneliness knowing that her friends will be graduating soon.

after watching its Season 1 (2009) back when it was aired, i immediately assumed that this season will be something similar, which it was. but after watching the first episode, it quickly reminded me of how much i missed watching Yui and her friends, and how much they made me laughed and cried. unfortunately there were less live performances in this season than the previous, which i was more than eager to get all excited over. every episodes left me chuckling through easily. this season focused partially on Yui as usual, where the other half went to Azusa, especially getting her ready with the loneliness of separation that had to come sooner or later. the bitter sweet graduation added so much more emotions to its end, making me wanting more to laugh and to cry about. like Azusa, i was sad that the core part of the story had come to an end, but it didn't stop me from wanting to catch its coming movie!
