More vinyl coming!

Still remember the 7inch Vinyl “Donuts” BOX, the box set of vinyl singles from K-ON!’s first season? Yeah, the official site has announced there’s another one coming, this time containing nine singles from season 2. The “K-ON!! 7inch Vinyl “Donuts” BOX” will be sold at Comiket 83, starting December 29th and ending the 31st, for the pretty price of 12000 yen. Singles included will be the second season’s opening and ending themes, as well as the character singles of the main five – minus all instrumental versions and “Come with Me!!” tracks.

Full track listing:

Disc 1:
Side B: Genius…?

Disc 2:
Side A: Listen!!
Side B: Our MAGIC

Disc 3:
Side A: Utayo!!MIRACLE
Side B: Kira Kira Days

Disc 4:
Side A: NO, Thank You!
Side B: Girls in Wonderland

Disc 5:
Side A: Oh My Giita!!
Side B: Shiawase Hiyori

Disc 6:
Side A: Seishun Vibration
Side B: Soukuu no Monologue

Disc 7:

Side B: Yuuzora a la Carte

Disc 8:

Side B: Yasei no Jounetsu

Disc 9:

And this is where I’d complain that I’ll probably never be able to buy this etc., but in all honesty – who am I kidding?

Yui’s birthday!

And now, it’s Yui’s birthday. So, for those who celebrate these things, what could be better than partying by means of K-ON!? For this occasion, I can think of several appropriate episodes, including “Cram Session!” and “Light Music!” from season 1, or possibly “No Club Room!” from season 2. Personally, I won’t be doing any partying as I forgot to take the day off this year.

Madman licenses K-ON! movie

So, Madman Entertainment has announced the license of the K-ON! movie for distribution in Australia, to my knowledge the first license of the movie to an English speaking market. According to the announcement, the film will screen at the Japan Film Festival this December in Sydney and Melbourne, with a home video release to follow in 2013.

The question remains, how much longer will it be before a similar announcement is made from a North American distributor?

Azunyan’s birthday!

Is it still November 11th where you are? If so, good, because that means it’s Azusa’s birthday in your part of the world. Now, there are many ways of celebrating the occasion for you to choose from, of course – wearing cat ears to school/work, adding another red Fender Mustang to your collection or what have you – but if it was me, I’d do something simple like watching an Azusa-centric anime episode or two. Like, say, “New Club Member!” from season 1 or “Late Summer Postcard!” from season 2.
