Ritsu's "remember auxilliary verbs" just had me laughing.....her style is like those GAR types of 1980s mecha anime!

Azunyan's "I want to hear about it too!" look is just.....so.......CUTE!!!!

Obviously Mugvision™ is at work again......Ritsu's "Come to my house and I'll train you well!" And Mugi's the only one that put her hands on her face in total approval and interest about Mio and Ritsu's longtime relationship.

As usual, Azunyan always thinks of the worse case scenarios.....

For some reason, after watching this episode, I feel like watching Hanamaru Kindergarten.

Anyone wants to recommend the series to me?

It turned into a SMG2 stream a little after the second commercials started. I thought it was a commercial showing the gameplay at first . . .

Anyway, I'll watch the subs later.

I can recommend the Kyounogononi OVAs (4). They're stellar.... haven't seen Hanamaru Kindergarten though.

Nice subtle thread going on during this episode ... Mugi was hanging on every word about childhood friends. Implication: Mugi's "princess of the clan" experience was very lonely.

Azunyan is turning into a regular H.L.Mencken with her caustic observations

Ritsu's VA really got to stretch out with all the comedic dialog delivery.

Yui may need institutional care --- she's tragic I think Sawa-chan did them a disservice by nixing Ritsu and Yui's "musician" choice. Its really what both of them live for.

Was kind of hoping we'd hear the "how Mio got into music" story... perhaps later.

Directing/storyboarding: Stringing the sequences together in this episode was a little awkward but they managed.

I think Sawako wasn't yet convinced that they made the right choice there, considering that she's been through all that and ended up teaching. I think she wants to prevent them from being disappointed about themselves, unless they're absolutely sure that that is what they want.

I explained why in a later post.

As for the episode, it had a lot of good points. Nice to see that we learn more on the turtle symbolism that has been running through this show since the very first episode.

I like how they kept Mio's "You're like a mommy" line, and the flashbacks were a feast for the eye.

And I think you can pretty much say that Mio owes her life to Ritsu. Without her, she wouldn't have come this far.

Mio is still really a little girl under her "pretend adult" veneer - so that bit was brilliant (mommy - mother).
Mio: Pink, plushies, frills -- polar opposite to overalls, dirt, boom, and flash Ritsu. They're going to be kind of lost without each other if their trails separate.

Had they had something other than "musician" on the paper she probably would've accepted it. Something like "go to an arts school." Sawa just wants them to know what they're getting into and have some kind of plan.

True.... there are plenty of arts/crafts/music universities in Japan. A few seconds of research would have provided names. So she wants them to have a more concrete plan -- of course, these two boke need hints.

Placing bets that Mugi will keep suggesting the "all girl" university she plans to attend .. and that her family has a deathgrip on the admissions process so Mugi can "suggest" accepting her friends (not that Mio would need the help...).

Mugi even chose the all girl college/Uni.

Also it is kinda ironic that we "English" speakers support Yui and Ritsu yet they seems to "hate" us

Oh, I also like to do that thing that Yui was doing with pillow while talking to Ui. But I prefer to use ball... all books when studying
I memorize and think better that way

Not quite as funny or musical as other episodes but still interesting to watch.

Are we sure Mugi isn't some kind of clone or robot? We never see anything about her youth, and her fasination with things seems like she was almost "born yesterday".

Heh, its a very universal and lazy human response to resort to "nationalism" when faced with something challenging from outside. Americans do it all the time as well.

I really liked this episode. I found all of the backstories really cute, and It really gave some insight to the characters, especially Nodoka. I also liked the comedy with Yui trying to fill out her form. Overall, a great episode that gave us a look into most of the casts' childhoods. There was also some great comedy to boot.

BTW, Azu-nyan's "Please tell me" look was so damn cute.


For the first time this season, I give this episode a 10/10.
