Andante always true to his word has kicked the Marijuana soaked bot with its addled brain in to touch.

Yay! Finally someone on this forum can appreciate the moe. I have a feeling we'll be best friends.  ;)

I'm going to try to start contacting that girl cosplaying as Yui (3rd pic). Not sure what age she is, but those pictures are 4 years old, so I should be good.

She's Ukrainian. So yeah, like a .1% chance that I'll see her in real life, but oh well. In the Dating thread, I probably sound incredibly picky, but this is all I want- a girl that adorable that obviously likes the same stuff I do.

I saw some more from her. Honestly, this might be the most beautiful picture I've ever seen. THIS is what you call love at first sight.

Though, of course, she hasn't logged in to DeviantArt in nearly 4 years and I can't find her anywhere else online. So I can't even tell her how I appreciate that she does the best cosplay of my favorite anime character.  :-X

I guess it could be considered comforting, in a way, that some people never grow up...

I wouldn't suppose you'd have better luck trying to contact Yui herself? ;D
I have been putting off watching K-on! but I feel I might have to watch it soon :P

The dream will always be alive...

I have seen her... just a couple of glimpses, in my dreams. After trying in some way for nearly the last 5 or so years.  And feeling disappointed every time I wake up. lol :-X

It's one of those shows that I thought more highly of after I finished watching than while I was actually watching. It just doesn't go anywhere, so it can start to feel a bit tedious or boring at times, but the characters mainly are what stuck out. But still very enjoyable as a light comedy, as long as you just remember that the plot moves at a snail's pace (it actually moves, but VEEEERRYYY slowly).

Haha. Epics gotta be epic. I like slow paced events, too, guess I just gotta know when to expect it (or else I wouldn't have enjoyed DBZ).

For a series as short as K-on, how slow paced can it be?? Other 12 episode series I've seen are deep into the story by episode 3 or 4.....unless there really isn't much story at all and the story could essentially just be told in the length of a single movie.

Exactly.
Let's just say that the story has a target at the beginning, but 90% of the show isn't about the goal. It's about the day to day friendship and goofing off between the girls. I guess you could say it's a slice of life show with a concrete beginning and ending, which is something many shows in the genre lack.

Is it anything like Lucky Star then? ;D
And actually I agree in terms of having a concrete beginning and ending. I would have assumed that the writers of these shows would have noticed this too, but maybe not. Oh well.

I don't know when I will watch any more anime though. I tend to go through phases where I obsess over a few series and then spend a few months with my mind elsewhere.
