I don't really know what to say, It is pretty decent that Kyoto Ani would take a risk in moving the series out of Japan.

Yet I still get that feeling that it will be a full-length movie [spoiler]of them doing random things and play a song at the end, it just doesn't interest me, however lowering my expectations for this is probably for the best.[/spoiler]

I hope for a good representation of England, kind of like what Eden Of The East did for America.

This is interesting, although I guess they could've done any old city and it would still make sense.

I'll be catching this once it is released.

Rioters? But there are no men in K-on, so these alleged rioters are non-existant. :P

WRONG! There's the guy who runs the Music Store, plus there's some blokes at the wedding.

Anybody recognise that church steeple in the backgound of that screen shot, or recognise what high street they are sitting in?
