7 pathetic excuses or justify your existence

Even though they're supposed to be the same age, the K-ON girls always read as middle schoolers to me. Even in the college chapters, I felt like they were twelve. So I couldn't see crossover pairings. The boys just seem so much older (well, okay, maybe not Nagisa).

It's just the difference in art style. The boys look muscular, but are actually very light.

Take Mio: 160CM, 54 KG.

Nagisa: 165CM, 55KG.

See? They're practically identical! Even Looks-like-he-got-scouted-by-Ohio-State-to-Play-Tight-End Makoto is only listed as 6 feet, 160 pounds... which is impossible of course.

Actually, NVM, Japan's best backstroke swimmer only weighs 137 pounds. Okay then.

Honestly though, personality-wise? Only Makoto is boy friend material. All the other boys I have difficulty picturing with girl friends. They're odd.

It's not the art, it's a personality/maturity thing. I can't take Yui or Ritsu seriously as young adults about to be let loose in the world. They'd be living in a box because they'd never remember to pay rent.

And of course lovely Makoto is the ideal boyfriend, but I think Nagisa would be a good boyfriend in his own goofy way--he's fun, he's loyal, he's caring, and he's physically affectionate. The others are more of a challenge for sure. Any girlfriend of Rin's would have to be extremely understanding, but he does have that endearingly dorky romantic side to him. Rei thinks love is illogical, which means when it hits him, it will hit him stupid hard. Haru, though... yeah, I don't think girls even register with him.
