It's been almost a year since the girls of the pop-music club started jamming together, but the start of the new year is no time to look back on their journey - it's time to recruit new members! Despite their inexperience, the girls' passionate performance at the entrance ceremony impresses first-year Azusa, a budding guitar player who can't wait to join. But she didn't expect there to be so much tea drinking in the pop-music club. Or cosplaying...When do they get around to making music?!
Kakifly is the music-enthusiast/manga creator behind K-ON!, a series that has spawned an anime, concert tours, music CDs, and more!

Here is my subjective opinion of the volume:
After watching the anime and reading the first volume, my main complaint stands: The manga feels too rushed compared to the anime. The anime, partly out of necessity for more content, adds many jokes and events of the light music club during their recruitment.
This volume mainly focuses on their recruitment of Azusa. There are priceless gags and moments added in the anime that the manga is missing. I am fully aware that the anime was made after the manga but I still believe more content is necessary in the manga to keep a reasonable pace.
Objectively, without considering the anime however, I have to give this volume 5 stars for its accurate and correct translation without losing much impact from the Japanese version. Thee art is good, which is what you should expect from kakifly, and is what KyoAni referenced for the anime.
Thank you for both this and the first volume!
The cuteness factor has to be one of the best things about this series. If you're a fan of cute girls doing cute things, you'll continue to love this series with the second volume. The inevitable vacation scenes continue to be my favorite portion of the series, although Yui getting a cold is pretty fun as well.
This really is a sweet and harmless series, which is really nice to read inbetween the more serious fare out there. There's only so much Higurashi you can read before you just need to read something that's more comprised of sweetness and light, after all.
I don't think I'll ever be as big of a fan of this series as I would like to be, but it's one that I'll continue to collect and would recommend to others to do the same. The good thing is that while it'd be best to read them in order, if you do happen to pick up the second volume without having read the first, you won't really be that lost. The series is one that can be read (so far in my experience) in any order without having to know that much of the back story- something that can be invaluable when you're in a bookstore that only has the later volumes.
