Need K-ON! Figures Now!

April 25, 2009

I just watched K-ON! episode 4, the required-by-law beach episode, and after wiping the drool from my chin, I realized that I need figures of the four lovely leading ladies now. As in, I entered into withdrawal and curled up in the fetal position when the episode ended. Alter, GSC, whatever else figure manufacturer out there, making these figures would make you akin to being my drug dealer, as I am now seriously addicted this show like particularly bad crack. The four K-ON! girls clad in swimsuit wear come to mind as potential figure candidates.

This show is about forming a band and learning how to play instruments

So far in this show, there hasn’t been a single male character identified by name, and certainly no significant male voice roles, besides the Krauser cameo in episode 1, a character from another show (Detroit Metal City) about music that involved more mention of rape and death than actual music, all tongue-in-cheek of course. Kyoto Animation knows the health value of eliminating sausages from a steady moe diet, just like I maintain a strict ban on one-eyed-snakes in my garden of figure bishoujos.

A figure version of Mio-chan in meido cafe attire is fine, fine, fine too.

Another typical scene from said music-oriented show

The power of the otaku rears its sweaty, awkward head again with the two singles from the OP and ED of K-ON!, Cagayake Girls and the delightfully Engrish Don’t Say Lazy placing near the top of the Japanese Oricon charts, and also placing one and two on Amazon.co.jp. I’m sure that the K-ON! figure scene will be a gold mine, on par with the armada of Haruhi figures out right now. So please, figure companies, get on making these figures before I’m forced to pause scenes from K-ON! on my HDTV, take the LCD fluid from the pixels, and inject them directly into my bloodstream.

Moe Moe Kyun!
