K-On! Nekomimi Switch [MMD]

K-On! characters doing the Miku Miku Dance.

Nekomimi Switch is the title of the song, it’s one of the most popular original creation using the Vocaloid software.

The original video features characters from the Vocaloid project, but apparently there are ways to switch the models to other characters.

Not sure exactly how they do this but this looks fun.

K-On! anime character album tops chart

Hokago Teatime – a two-CD mini-album performed by the characters of the K-On! anime series – became the first anime character CD release to top either the weekly album or single chart of the Oricon survey firm.

The CD release sold 67,000 copies to debut at #1 on the latest weekly album chart. No other album credited to fictional anime characters has ever reached that high on the popular ranking chart.

Judging by its trend we may see a second season of the anime. Not all shows will get a sequel just because it’s popular though, we can only hope.

K-On! The End

The first season has ended, which is quite fast. They cramped two years of high school stories into 13 episodes; they could easily make that into 24.

Read that the show is very popular in Japan so they’ll probably make a second season soon. They might regret rushing the first season though.

Update: The second season is coming in 2010, check this tag for updates.
