Well, here’s something unexpected.
This week on K-ON, they decided to have yet another beach episode. Which is a bold move, given that such territory is rarely touched twice in any given series. Hence, it really almost boils down to Spot the Difference, K-ON style.
Of course, this weeks version includes 100% more Asuza. Who is herself already a big sufferer of cloning, seeing as how her character design is almost entirely a rip-off of Kooh from Pangya. Check this out:

What’s more, there’s further ‘Deja Vu gone wrong’ goodness in this episode, with Asuza’s amazing ability to gain a full body tan in EXACTLY ONE MINUTE (of screen time). Here’s the evidence:
Asuza is on the far right. This is at 9:54. Now compare:
This shot is taken at 10:54! Exactly one minute and she’s like a crisp!
You’d think they’d at least of tried to have some more gradual progression.
Nevertheless, I still LOL’ed, given as I got the feeling that this was deliberately NOT trying to be serious, especially as none of the others got even a smidgen of darkness. It was like someone clicked the ‘Tan’ switch on her.
LOL. Its rather tongue-in-cheek, isn’t it? It’ll be even more amusing if she now manages to drop the tan entirely by next weeks episode.
Anyway, Summer fun aside, personally its not usually one of my favourite seasons.
Much like Yui, I can’t seem to handle the heat. It drains my energy away and makes me even lazier than usual (and you thought such a thing wasn’t possible, didn’t you?!? ROFL). What’s more, I have a distinct distaste for the extra insects that the summer months seem to generate. Though I guess the extra sunlight is fine as long as there’s a decent wind to go with it.
Oh well. Nevertheless, this episode inspired my creativity again, for some reason, and I’ve made yet another widescreen wallpaper to commemorate the wonderful, wicked heat of summer, K-ON style. Enjoy!
As always, click the above to get the full sized wall.
Is it too chockablock full of fanservice? Probably. But that’s surely part of the appeal, right? I’m quite pleased about the work that went into this. I created the Background from Mio’s image as a basis. It also required several extra masks for the sunlight. Not to mention I basically had to re-build the top part of Yui, as well as changing Asuza’s arm and hair since they got in the way. Mugi is disturbingly lovely in this picture of her, I have to say. I also spent awhile on getting the font right. Its supposed to look as if Yui carved it into the wall before conking out.
Anyway, hope you enjoyed this K-ON madness. Stay tuned.
