Heh, you can imagine what will happen if that old photo of hers spreads around the school.

Exactly... she is not hiding that she was in a band, she is hiding how wild she was...
In fact you can see that she is still wild and passionate about music and i think that everybody who actually plays an instrument is passionate, the classic or the rocker.

That's why i can't imagine a "sweet music teacher".

Well, passion comes in many forms, and it does depend on what type of instrument. When you look at instruments of the "string" (violin, viola, cello...) and "wind" (flute, trumpet) series, it's pretty hard to imagine a Visual Kei artist playing them.

Of course, those are the classic instruments. What was her instrument back in her band days?

Guitar... but as a teacher, she is originally the advisor for the wind instruments club.

Guitar, no? I mean, she was showing Yui how to play.

Spoiler for "The Great Kat Example:


Other than that, there are many classically trained piano players that play guitar very well (Shawn Lane most notably, he having claimed that Piano was harder to play than guitar (this being a guy who could play 20 NPS (notes per second) on his guitar)).

Nowadays, quite a few people were in school bands that played guitar as well.

I could go on, but I kind of brought this up for no reason, so I'll shut up now XD

It seems personality traits of the four girls can be found in Sawako, only in boosted form. I mean, there's Ritsu's leadership, with more credibility; Mugi's niceness (not sure if it's boosted, just that it's not as sugary as Mugi's); Mio's tsuntsun, with more evil, also Mio's timidity (although for Sawako it's more about being embarrassed of her past). Not sure about Yui, though. Maybe she's still under special training and is yet to show a part of Sawako's personality.

This good mixing of traits must be part of her appeal.

I wonder if Sawa-chan would eventually ask to perform with the band in a school event, complete with Visual Kei looks, under an alias.

Well, I do understand where you are coming from. I guess what feels odd to me though is how she's denying her talent with the guitar as the girls all pointed out. Though I can kind of see now that maybe she doesn't use a guitar since it...changed her. (Krauser-isms ftw)

My only hopes then is that she stays around teach Yui some tricks.

Damn, I was hoping KyoAni would make Sawako-sensei look good at the anime, but they... make her look AWESOME!

I like how both of her true and her false personality influence her.

And seriously: The Adult Kid Teacher is an old stereotyp at this genre, but in Sawako´s case, you can understand, why she got her job!

It's Mikuru(small) after her personality it completely destroyed by Haruhi and then replaced by a rock/metal/death demon. Only to have a Mikuru(BIG) personality attempted to be placed over it to hide her past. The potential is hilarious if she has some of Haruhi's cosplay (cosrape) tastes.

Back on topic, Sawa-chan is massively awesome for this series. I especially liked her initial "punk" phase as it made me think of Priss from the original Bubblegum Crisis OVAs. I, for one, welcome our new death metal goddess overlord.

I hoping Sawako-sensei sings a rock song either in the anime or in her own CD. One rock song i'm hoping for is X Japan's "Kurenai"!

She was an innocent teacher until Mio found the box.
When Yui gave her guitar to her.........the darkside returned

She will be a major influence to the band and I hope she does play with them too.
