Why in Database: K-On is a two-season Anime series in which turtles play an important role. There was also a movie, which we discuss in a separate post.
The first season consists of thirteen episodes and one episode in the OVA type, in addition, the DVD and BL release includes a seven-episode series Ura-On !, which are rather simply animated and short (3 minutes) stories with the main characters.
Season two includes 24 regular episodes, two bonus episodes and one OVA episodes, and the nine-episode Ura-On!! series was released for him.

There are three types of turtle motifs in this series – Ornaments, real turtle named Ton, and others.
The decorations are small sculptures of a turtle and a tortoise and the hare found in the school attended by the protagonists. This items decorate the railing by the stairs leading to the room occupied by the Music club (where a lot of the action takes place) – you can see them in many episodes of both seasons, sometimes quite well sometimes only in the background.
The Ton is the name of the turtle (pig-nosed turtle) that the heroines buy for the room mentioned above. He makes his debut in the second episode of the second series and appears in most of the following episodes, usually perfectly visible, for example in the form of close-ups, additionally in a large number of scenes he is visible “in the background”, as a small turtle swimming in the aquarium behind the protagonists. Two episodes in which he does not appear are “away”, the heroines do not appear at the headquarters of their music club and therefore you cannot see Ton.
Others are, of course, all the other appearances of the turtle or turtle related things.
