Synopsis of K-On!
A new high school year always means a lot to come, and one of those things is joining a club. Having a dilemma over which to join, Yui Hirasawa stumbles upon and requests to join the Light Music Club, which she misinterprets as a club where simple instruments such as castanets are played. Unable to play a more complicated instrument, she decides to visit the club to apologize and resign. Meanwhile, the Light Music Club faces imminent disbanding due to a lack of members. This causes the club members to offer anything from food to lounging around all day to convince Yui to join. Despite her best efforts, Yui doesn't want to accept due to her lack of experience. As a last resort, they play a piece for Yui, which ignites her burning passion and she is finally convinced to enter.
