Toyosaki Aki wrote a post titled Daisuki wo Arigatou (Thank you for all the love) on her blog before the last episode of K-ON!! aired. The words she used, “Daisuki wo arigatou”, are exactly the same words as the ones used in the lyrics of K-ON!!’s second opening. Aki-chan wrote a love-filled post in which she expressed her gratitude for being able to voice Yui-chan and for the people who watch and enjoy it.
The post’s translation:
The last episode of K-ON!! is airing tonight on TBS.
There are a lot of things on my mind now, but anyways, I’ll be very glad if you watch it.
Yui-chan sings “Thank you for all the love” to everyone in the opening.
I’d like to say “I love you” and “Thank you” to Yui-chan.
I put my heart into my voice and let it out during the recording of the last episode too.
Definitely, definitely watch it please!
Please, be so kind to watch over my beloved Yui-chan and others.
Thank you very much.
I’ll watch it on the air and do my best not to cry!
All righty! (*｀ω´*)
It’s so nice to see that she loves the characters and truly treasures her job. If this world was full of Aki-chans, not only would it be exceedingly cute a world, I’m sure it would also be a world where everyone would love each other and everything could be resolved in a peaceful way. Right, so much for this saccharine talk about love&peace.; I’m sorry I just couldn’t help it. I guess the last episode of K-ON!! is at fault. I really enjoyed it and was moved to tears. Although there will be 2 more episodes, this was the true end of K-ON!! and that’s just so sad. K-ON is a great anime whose greatness is built upon the awesome characters whom the people who watch it just grow attached to. Therefore, you don’t want to say goodbye to them because you know you will miss them. In K-ON’s case, the creators, in order to make the anime popular, used this way to unprecedented extent I think. What I’m really happy about and what is really crucial is that they managed to conclude it in a grand way, at least from my viewpoint. I have one advice for everyone. As long as K-ON doesn’t fade away from your hearts, it will never end. So keep K-ON deep in your hearts and let your love bloom for ever and ever.
btw. I wonder if the suicide rate will grow now ^^;
