K-ON! Manga volume 1Wow! Sega’s announced a K-ON! video game! Okay, it probably isn’t all that surprising. The K-ON! manga and anime are among the most popular series in Japan right now. But still, I wasn’t expecting to hear an announcement so soon. PSP owners are going to get to take part in K-ON! After School Live in Q3 2010. While a US release is very unlikely, there’s no need to worry! The PSP is region-free so you can always import the UMD.

As you can probably guess from the title, K-ON! After School Live is going to be a music game. Players will get to push buttons to play along with songs from the anime. It’s only just been announced, so there isn’t much information available on what tracks will be appearing. Sega has confirmed that there will be cooperative multiplayer, where up to five PSP owners with the game can play songs together.

I’m going to guess that some of the following K-ON! anime songs will appear in K-ON! After School Live:

  • “Cagayake! Girls”
  • “Don’t Say ‘LAZY’”
  • “Fuwa Fuwa Time”
  • “Go! Go! Maniac”
  • “Listen!!”
  • “Pure Pure Heart”

I’m sort of hoping that “Heart Goes Boom!” and “Sweet Bitty Beauty Song” make it into the game as well!

K-ON! is about a group of high school girls without minimal musical experience joining the light music club, and gradually becoming awesome musicians and friends. The club forms the band Ho-Kago Tea Time and plays at school events and such. At first, there are only four characters, Yui, Mio, Ritsu and Tsumugi, but eventually Azusa joins the group and club as well. The manga series consists of four-koma (panel) strips, similar to comics seen in the US.
