Yeah, so apparently people heard the news yesterday, and #keion trended for around 3 hours before being taken down by those other silly silly trends that make no sense at all and how people waste their time trying to get a retweet out of something that just bears no fruit. Not even the leaves.
What is Keion? (though I should really bamf uber killz you if you say that) Keion (けいおん） is basically what they call K-On! in America. Yeah, it’s that anime and light novel series. Apparently it’s gained a lot of popularity, whether it’s the featured songs on the oricon charts like Yoko Hikasa’s (Mio) hit song Don’t Say Lazy or Fuwa Fuwa Time and Aki Toyosaki’s (Yui) Cakayake! Girls and Go! Go! Maniac. People have probably already understood that the Keion series, both the anime and the light novel are popular in Japan. Not to mention a good part of the western United States like California where I live. Ok, it’s not that popular since everyone talks about Naruto and Bleach and how freaking awesome Byakuga Kuchiki’s Senbonzakura is. Yeah, it’s awesome, but you westerner Bleach and Tite Kubo fanboys talk about bankais all the time like you’re rocket scientists and want what not to devise some sort of IRL soul society. Luckily, Tite Kubo is in the JITP list so go fanboy over him there. Haha~
