K-ON!: Volume 1

 (TV) (2009)

K-ON!: Volume 1 Blu-ray delivers great video and decent audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

It's Yui Hirasawa's first year in high school, and she's eagerly searching for a club to join. At the same time, Ritsu Tainaka, a drummer, and her friend Mio Akiyama, a bassist, are desperately trying to save the school's light music club, which is about to be disbanded due to lack of members. They manage to recruit Tsumugi Kotobuki to play the keyboard, meaning they only need one more member to get the club running again. Yui joins, thinking it will be an easy experience for her to play the castanets, the only instrument she knows. However, the other members think their new addition is actually a guitar prodigy...

K-ON!: Volume 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

K-On! is not the most incredibly detailed anime ever released (even within the confines of the Bandai universe), so its AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1, while fine by its own standards, probably won't overly excite "outsiders" to anime television series. This is a rather surprisingly uncolorful series, albeit flashes of deeply saturated hues come into play as the girls choose their instruments, and the episode featuring the girls working as waitresses has some nice diffuse light effects which help to give some visual variety. The image here is suitably sharp, but this is anime that has not been overly developed, so frequently whole faces go blank, features of various sets are left to the imagination, and there simply isn't a huge variety of detail within the drawings themselves that the Blu-ray can exploit.


K-ON!: Volume 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Bandai only provides two lossy tracks on this Blu-ray, the original Japanese track, and an English dub, both in Dolby Digital 2.0 mixes. There's nothing hideous to complain about in either of these tracks, and voice work is clear and consistent in both of them, but for a series emphasizing music the way this one does, one has to wonder why at least a stereo LPCM uncompressed track wasn't provided in at least one of the languages. These are both completely serviceable tracks without having much of a "wow" factor. While the music elements sound fine, there's a lot of great power chord guitar playing going on here, and a lossless track would have emphasized the low end especially, upping the allure of this release considerably.
