K-ON!! – 06
It’s rainy season and there’s a fear of mold growing on everyone’s instruments, but what really caught my attention was the amount of lines their classmates had. It’s just too bad they only had two seiyuus, Nakamura Tomoko and Fujita Mami, playing three of them (unless one of the regulars was doubling up). I get the feeling that once they have a regular seiyuu, officially attaching a name to each of them would be the next step. Before long, we’ll probably have a K-ON spin-off to milk them for all they’re worth. I say that jokingly, but I can picture it happening at the same time. After all, if there’s one studio that can create hype out of nothing, it’s Kyoto Animation.
Anyway, with the way things were focused on Yui and her undying love for her guitar this week — so much that it prompted boyfriend remarks from the aforementioned cute classmates — I’ll be the first to admit that she deserved the serial cold shower treatment. I always find the most amusing Yui to watch is a victimized Yui, like when Sawa-chan tried to strip her of her sweatpants. Unfortunately, I can never see Yui as anything more than a little kid, given how she can ruin the image of a school girl taking off a drenched uniform by making it so unsexy. If only it was Mio who got soaked or Mugi with her pristine sparkling blond hair. We’d definitely be in business if that were the case, but at least everyone was out of their dull-looking blazers for a change.
Other than that, I find it rather amusing that Sawa-chan’s trying to be all teacher-like and scolding Yui for coming to class with a maid uniform that she herself made. In reality, we all know she’s obsessed with dressing up the K-ON members for their performances, so she was undoubtedly denying her inner pleasure. Azusa on the other hand has proven to not only have a thing for impulse shopping online, but also a secret love interest in Yui’s guitar. While the latter was obviously just some teasing from her seniors, I’m not opposed to hearing a “love triangle” themed song down the road. Hopefully, they’ll be talking about some boys instead of instruments though, despite how unlikely that is. With names attached to their however, namely Mio’s “Elizabeth”, Mugi might want to take notice of the way Mio swings. I kid, but it’s definitely not as manly as Azusa’s “Mustang”, even when it’s shortened to “Muttan”.
Next time, a tea party! I can’t say I feel it’s necessary to have an episode dedicated to that when it’s an ongoing thing in this series, but maybe there’s a bit more to it than just a bunch of people sitting around eating cake and sipping on tea in their fancy cups. Highly doubtful but I can always hope.
