I'm a little late on the scene but the current fad in Japan and us otaku right now is the new hit show K-ON! Already the show's opening song "Cagayake! GIRLS" has reached #2 in the Japanese charts. at a quick glance you can see that the show was animated by the same people who brought us Haruhi Suzumiya and Lucky Star (Kyoto animation). The opening (seen below) is just wonderfully done and proof that only Japan does animation best.
The story of K-On! revolves around four high school girls who are trying to keep the music club they are a part of from going away. Not only are they the only ones in the group, their one member Yui never played instruments nor does she know how to read music ^^;;
