K-ON!! - Episode 27 OVA

Somehow it seems that I just can't get enough of K-ON - no matter how long since I last watched an episode, I find myself eagerly awaiting more as soon as the opportunity presents itself.  Enter this additional OVA episode to sate my needs for the time being as this merchandising juggernaut continues to roll on.

This extra episode sees the girls of the light music club deciding to plan a graduation trip for the following summer (with Azusa tagging along of course), with a rather ambitious plan to travel abroad for the first time.. unless you're Mugi of course, in which case you've seen and done it all before.  Whilst perhaps the most important decision of where to actually go on this trip is left unresolved even by the end of this episode (Mio, with impeccable taste, wants to come to England of course), the girls nonetheless busy themselves with researching possible destinations, preparing passports (which appears to be as much of a pain in the ass as it is here in the UK, incidentally) and so on in their normal light-hearted fashion.

In short, this is typical K-ON - it's light, it's fluffy, it provides a few good laughs and it's simply a slice of enjoyable entertainment; exactly why most of us are hooked on this series in the first place.  It's interesting how this episode seems to set the scene for the future spin-off and continuation of the franchise which were recently announced, but that aside there isn't much for me to say here.  This is more of the same, and that is most certainly a good thing - let's leave any questions as to how this series might survive a transition to the girl's university years for another day.
