Mio Akiyama is a main protagonist featured in Kakifly's manga and Kyoto Animation-adapted series K-ON!. A bassist of the show's band Houkago Tea Time, Mio is named after P-Model member Katsuhiko Akiyama, and like her fellow bandmates shares traits with a Beatles member. In Mio's case, she is likely based on the Beatles' singer-songwriter Paul McCartney, who also plays bass left-handed.

Out of all the Keion representatives, Mio is the most successful in terms of championships won, and hence, is essentially their frontwoman. K-On's second season is largely responsible for her sucess, as she achieved a double championship of Korea Best Moe Tournament and ISML in 2010, joining the list of girls who won multiple major contests, as well as becoming the only girl to win KBM and ISML in the same year.

Despite Mio having a generally positive reception in r/anime, in Best Girl Contests she's easily in the middle tiers like most K-On girls. Her best finish so far is in the round of 32.

Akiyama made her regular season return in ISML 2019, where she easily reached the playoffs, helped in part by the KyoAni supporters. However, she lost to Emilia in the Round of 16.

Look familiar? Mio is essentially Paul McCartney as an anime high school girl
