no..... I didn't say it sucks. What did frustrate me in the first series is that they wouldnt take things seriously and just sit around having tea parties. I thought Azusa was going to quit at one stage. I was really suprised she stayed in the band. I actually hoped she did quit for them to wake up.

Yes, pretty much.

Kinda why I was asking if its improved in this direction. I dont mind if they arn't really that good as newcomers. I mean I like watching people grow and become better. But only if they are really trying. They dont have to become musicians for there lives, just as long as they take the light music club seriously while they're in it.

I just was hoping for some motivation to watch it. You can say I am music inclinded. Not to bring up Angel beats again, but it took 1 episode for me to been blown away O_O. GirlsDeMo also rehearsal, but I dont want to say anymore since its spoilish and not really K-onish ^_^

They're students, not professional musicians, what do you expect about that? PLUS, K-ON's theme is NEVER about music alone. You pretty know the reason why Season 2 Episode 04 didn't show any instruments throughout.

EDIT: I DID miss the second point! Silly me.

But well, you won't really expect music at the quality of Girls Dead Monster in K-ON.

Nah Azunyan won't quit. She's a girl, and enjoys the attention given to how cute and adorable she looks.

I do my best to resist her cuteness and cuddliness. I really do my best though.....*fails badly*

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

The fourth episode aired last week, so the first episode aired in the first week of April.

Typically anime seasons in Japan run on the quarter system with new seasons (cours) starting April-July-October-January. K-On!! is going to run over two cours (April-September), twice as long as the first K-On!.

I'm not being exact because holidays and sports events sometimes vary a season and I haven't bothered to do the detective work to see if its 24, 25, or 26.

She's better than Yui in the technicalities, but less talented.

Then again, her purpose in the band is a stuffed toy to be cuddled and hugged by the rest of the band members.

How does being more technical mean less talented?

I think he meant that Azusa has the advantage in terms of experience, but Yui on the other hand seems to be more talented on the account that she learns quickly and has perfect pitch.

You know, in music writing music is a skill, composing music is a talent.

Similarly, being able to play naturally with little formal training like Yui, that is talent.

I have studied enough music in my whole life to be able to discern between talent and skill. Being someone with neither, it makes it easier for me to see what others do.

Both talent and skill are *useful* ... and neuroscience studies show there's a lot more overlap than previously thought. Some of it is chance basic brain wiring and physicality, some added with focus and practice. No shame to be one or the other.

Talent is more inclined towards natural ability....while skill is something that can be learnt.

Perfect pitch cannot be learnt, relative pitch can....but for it to rival perfect pitch, one needs at least 20 over years of experience. For one, I am a person who totally suck at strings no matter how much I play. And I can never play slow songs less than 80 bpm without losing rhythm a couple of minutes into the song.
