K-On! The Comic Book

The main story line of K-On! Is based on a Japanese context and centres around four high school girl friends.

Their high school band is on the verge of being terminated and these enterprising friends band together and join the music club with the view of saving it.

The gravity of their folly is only discovered when they find out there are no other members in the music club and to make matters worse the main character, Yui Hirasawa, admits she has had no practice in any sort of musical instrument and knows nothing about reading sheet music.

But with great chutzpah, she masters the skill of playing the guitar and consequently Mio Akiyama is taken on as a bassist, Ritsu Tainaka as drummer and Tsumugi Kotobuki as the Keyboard player.

The four friends spend their time on untiring practices, performing to their hearts content and having fun together.

Their music escapades are monitored by Sawako Yamanaka, mentor and close confidante. She also becomes the girl's class teacher in their final high school term.

During the second year in school the band welcomes a stranger in to their midst as a new guitarist, Azusa Nakano. The new arrival adds more glitz to the band and they perform with renewed vigor.

At the end of their high school years, the friends leave the band in the safe hands of Azusa and continue their life paths with all four joining the same university.
