We kick off this episode with a female fap session, as sensei busts out her mastered dvd of Mio’s shimapan. Sensei always delivers.
Turns out Ritsu forgot to turn in the signup sheet for the stage again, so Nodoka has to bail them out again. Except this time, Ritsu gets a little jealous cuz Mio and Nodoka get along so well. Great, it’s gonna be one of those eps… sigh
In other news, Yui’s Les Paul is already in crappy condition, considering she treats it like a damn stuffed animal. You know, kinda like how Chiaki treats her pedobear. Yui’s just weird like that, I guess… calling her vintage guitar cute, dressing it up, sleeping with it… at any rate, they decide to take it to the music store to get it fixed up.
After some Mio moe moments and a hapless store employee who isn’t having any of Yui’s random shit, the guitar gets fixed up quite nicely, but then Ritsu starts PMSing after Yui says she’s meeting up with Nodoka, and Mio goes with her. Sigh, doesn’t this shit only happen with elementary school kids? Girls, I’ll never understand them.
Practice the next day goes awkward as hell, and while Azusa and sensei try to break them out of the funk, they realize they are just not the same band when there’s some DRAMA weighing down on them. Almost too conveniently, however, Ritsu gets sick the next day, so Mio goes to take care of her and that’s the end of that.
They also name their band, which is a bit surprising considering they’ve been together for almost a year now. “After School Tea Time” – a bit too appropriate. I would’ve gone for Moeroon 5.
Up next on K-ON!: I try to rediscover my sense of humor
Wow, I could feel it as I was doing the captions… I can’t write worth shit today. But um, at least I beat the sub!
Couple things I gotta say about this ep – first of all, UGH. The bit with Yui fixing up her guitar was normal K-ON fare, which was totally fine and pretty fun, but what the hell was up with the Ritsu bit? Sorry Ritsu fans, but she’s by far my least favorite girl in this show, and that was before this episode. Now we know she’s a jealous, selfish bitch who starts hating on other girls who spend time with her friend. Unbelievable. But whatever, I didn’t like her to begin with. Of course, I’d have to ask myself, what if Ritsu’s personality was put in Mio’s character instead? I’d probably forgive her.
– Any guitar heads out there want to tell us less informed viewers what happens when a guitar is in a condition like Yui’s? Why does getting it dusty or having worn strings or whatever have anything to do with how an electric guitar sounds? I mean, I can cake my digital piano in mud and it would still sound the same. Please explain!
– “After School Tea Time” is a pretty nice name for their band.
– Why doesn’t Kobe have 50 points yet? Getting tired of watching the Lakers suck…
