As you probably already know by watching the first episode on NebsTV, the second season of K-On introduces a brand new sixth girl to the main cast- Akane Miura! This pink-haired goddess uses the tuba (actually an euphonium) as her instrument of choice, setting her pretty far apart from the rest of the cast. But that's not the only thing noticeably different about her- Akane is a whopping 5'8" tall. That's a decent height for a Western girl, but for a Japanese girl that's incredibly tall. Before her, Mio was the tallest of the bunch at 5'2"! In addition to how tall she is, she's also the bustiest of the K-On gals.
Akane is a second-year high school student in season 2, putting her at the same age as Azu-nyan. As the rest of the girls soon discover, this new transfer student is actually a homeless girl who lives in a close-by park. She's not very good at music yet, but shows a promising start. As her character songs show (which will be getting released on CD soon), she's quite the good singer too:
A Figma figurine of her is already in the works as well:
