I was going to write about how Azusa’s true value was in the interactions she enabled with the other cast members, and how she filled a role that was missing in K-On all this time. The fact that she is a guitar-playing loli catgirl is nice, but doesn’t have that much to do with why I like her character so much. I mean, have I ever done anything to suggest I am biased in any way toward lolis, catgirls, or guitar players?


Samu-kun helped me realize that I was lying to myself, and I have stopped saying that my primary reason for liking Azusa is her part in the story. The truth is, I have been squarely targeted and hit by the Azusa Beam of shameless pandering from Kakifly and Kyo-Ani that has disintegrated my anti-moe defenses in the blink of an eye.

The loli catgirl is one of the golden standards of moe – just ask Kito. And guitar-playing loli catgirl takes it one step further. What’s next, guitar-playing tsundere loli catgirl with glasses? K-On might actually make it happen.

P.S. She does look a little like Jasmine Miao.

    It doesn’t look like anyone’s opening the blog post and seeing the Azu-Nyan wrapped underneath. 😮

    See, this is why I love K-ON: it has the power to render any of us defenseless with nothing but a few guitar-playing schoolgirls 😛

    What no one realizes is secretly Aruru plays some pretty mean electric lead herself. There were just never any outlets handy for her to plug her amp into.
