You have a very good point. I hadn't noticed that.
The living turtle and the artificial turtle... We see turtles enough on K-ON!!

That brings up the question...if Yui's the turtle, who is the hare?

Mio. She's the one with a facade.

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.

Probably something that involves long and hard drumsticks as well as fingering thick but slender things....

I'd guess she saw someone left handed who played bass in that video Ritsu brought over and fell in love with the idea because she'd found someone else that is left handed and good at something. And as she said she wanted to play bass because it wouldn't attract attention to herself (that didn't work out like she planned).

She could cut her face.....but that would be so wrong.

What she really needs to do is to accept the fact that she's pretty and physically appealing to the extent that even girls are drawn to her*. She has a bishoujo appearance that is highly marketable, but her paradigm is just way too dated that made her very close to being a really old-fashioned geisha.

One thing that makes me laugh is that Azunyan is the complete opposite of her largely in character and body while sharing almost replicating facial features and work ethic. However, this comes with another thing to laugh at : the size of their hands pretty much equivalent to the size of respective their bo... *IS SHOT*.

[watching TV]

Mio: "Who's that?"
Ritsu: "That's Paul McCartney"
Mio: "I see..."

Paul McCartney works....though he (like Mio) attacts a lot of attention. Especially in the early 60s.

The Beatles bode ill omen I think to look at in more than one way...

At any rate, Yui really is under tremendous set of support with Ui and Nodoka and even Azunyan more or less. Mio on the other hand only has her Watson in Ritsu in some ways...

I think Ritsu led Mio to play in left-handed to overcome her shyness.

loli Ritsu: Wow, Mio-chan you are left-handed. I envy you!!
loli Mio: I feel no envy at it. I hate being left-handed.
loli Ritsu: Why? it's cool!!

I wish I had a loli Ritsu friend when I was a loli because I was just like Mio.
But...
I wouldn't like the "fun" ridiculing from loli Ritsu because at that age I would think that she's intentionally trying to make me cry or something.

Good for MioxRitsu and YuiNodo flashback.

Saintess, you know why Mugi was excited to hear about how MioxRitsu and YuiNodo met right?

Hmm...where did I put my YuiNodo, MioRitsu Goodend comic again

Oh well...


Questions? No? Agree with this picture? Yes?

Quote:
Yui and Ui are only one year apart. But looks wise they are twins. Though as Sawa-chan can guess Ui has the bigger boobs of the two.

Azuza on the other hand you can't help but think she is Mio's younger sister. Sawa-chan has a problem telling them apart without glasses. Again boobs being her basis of differentiation.
I swear KyoAni is pushing her siscon to no tomorrow in this anime.

Now she is getting waaaay too concerned for Yui that she even wants to live with her in future to watch out for her sister. What if Yui got married? How will her husband be able to accommodate having a doting sister that...

Spoiler for Wait...nevermind:

Mio is 20 seconds away from becoming Chizuru.

Are you talking about the perverted flabby-fox Chizuru from Kanokon or the perverted lolicon-big-sis Chizuru from Seitokai No Ichizon ?

Anyways, am I the only one who found this episode, cute as usual notwithstanding, a little disquietening?

The girls are already 18, and from midpoint this episode on, the ponderous reality that Yui could very well become a failure for the rest of her life in a few month's time finally hits you. Ui-chan planning to give up her own future to look out for Yui just rubs the point further in.

And what the HELL was Sawa-chan sensei thinking? Unlike herself, Yui is a musical prodigy, and just because she is an old-maid who had her girlhood dreams go up in flames dosent' bloody mean she has the right to do the same to Yui!!

I explained Sawako's reasoning earlier in this thread. It's not what you think it is.

Compare with Frostii's subs:

This was such a cute episode. The flashback scenes just had me laughing so much because they were the cutest kids ever! Yui was the most adorable though. I think she should work in a pet shop. But a part of me says she'd be better as a Kindergarten teacher. Aww. ^^ I'm disappointed we didn't get any Azu-nyan or Mugi flashbacks. I bet they were even cuter as kids! I'm looking forward to the next episode

Cuteness overload. I'm not a fan of super kawaii toddlers, though. Still, a good episode. The relationships between main characters characters got explored a bit further.

Still, I wan't the cast to look in to the future. Hopefully that will happen in the next episode. Gogo, pick an university/whatever place you're going after school !
