It's just a touch too ideal for my tastes. Ui must have the patience of a saint to be able to put up with Yui's laziness and needy nature.
Go and watch Binbou Shimai Monogatari. After that you will be cured of cutesy for life. You will never be able to find anything 'too cute' ever again.

So you think not knowing Ritsu is the reason she isn't as well endowed as Mio. lol

Ahh in the first shot of Asuza, Mei from Clannad sprung into mind... xD Ah similiar hairstyles..

Loved this episode, especially the stage scene Ritsu saying "We're not a comic band!" and Mio's song names Cracked me up..

Also loved it when Mio and Yui sung together!

Yui, Ritsu and Mugi in 2-2 class and Miu in 2-1... lol... Kagamin
I loved the song... Mio was great saving the day despite her shyness though... Yui is awesome in her "genki way": I found a 100 yen coin!! and her fun things are fun.

Azusa... well, Azusa is Azusa

So Azusa is another guitar player? And from what I've read, Ui will play the guitar too. How many guitarists do they need?! Oh well, I was hoping Azusa played the sax since she liked jazz. =\

I think the focus is changing away from the "original" girls. Remember: it's a club, not a band. While the older girls have to form a band to play in order for the club to survive, now that they are having new blood, I expect the new girl(s) to play in the band at some point.

I don't think so... this anime will finish in the budoukan, when the 4 girls will be in 3rd year.
Same way Azumanga and Lucky Star ended when the girls reached the senior year.

Well, that's the anime. The Lucky Star manga actually had a few strips in volume 6 after the older girls graduated.

Iron Maiden has 3 guitars!

Nah... the sax?... hmmm, Yui can go back to the castanets (ok, the tambourine is an option too) and Ui and Azu-nyan do the guitars

Nice concert. It was well animated in the beginning, but by the end it was more like still frames. I liked this song better than the first too.

I agree with others in that K-On!'s gags aren't as funny anymore, but I still like the pace and it sets a nice mood for me, so I don't mind watching this.
They REALLY are abusing the Mio thing, but at least she had the courage to sing during the song. Hopefully she becomes a little braver near the end.
Actually, I'm hoping for a little change in all of them, but eh....

That's because Mio is forced to do damage control because Yui almost messed up forgetting the lyrics. By helping Mio to become braver, Yui needs to mess up more in live.

Unfortunately the only way I can see anyone of the cast change is only when something bad happens to the club members or someone close to the club (fallout in the K-ON club, death or serious accident). No offense but, that's how I see things.

The song before the Staple one. The one they were playing as Ui and Azusa just entered the auditorium. Did anyone here notice it?

am I the only one that *really* liked the new song?

Well, at least the intro and the bit with the duet. I'm a sucker for duets.

I found myself rewinding and humming along it a bunch of times, hahaha

plus what I liked about it is that you can really hear Yui's singing range, going from lows to highs with relative ease. I like Mio's voice a lot more for singing though, especially at the beginning of the song, but at least for this one Yui's voice was surprisingly fitting.

That should be the second song in the list: カレーのちライス.

Thank the heavens that Mio encountered Ritsu then, it must be fate? Why? Because Azusa's personality is a little... boring. Granted, she hasn't had that much screen time in the anime, but just comparing her now to her manga counterpart... blah. I hope she doesn't stay like this for the whole series is all I'm saying.

We can't say that Ui is an actual member, just that she has the natural talent for it. Who knows, she may end up joining sometime in the future?

You can never have too many cute girls with guitars, anyways.

Pretty sure we're not going to see any of that in something like this. Regardless, there has been change in the characters, just not so large and not so obvious. There won't be drastic changes, as the focus is on gags not character development, but the growth is there. Mio slowly opening up and not being so shy etc.

Though OceanBlue, if you mean changes like Yui no longer being an airhead, Ritsu no longer being a genki girl, and Mugi no longer being a lesbian... maybe when pigs fly.

I haven't really seen anyone state that they disliked the song, it's more the opposite actually.

I miss the musician humor. Now it's about the club and cosplay

It's still awesome though.
