Yeah; it's just that GMT wanted to work in a Metalocalypse reference in there.

--EDIT--

Just rewatched the episode with CoalGuy's subtitles... After the opening credits, when Sawako was mentioning her day to the girls, she mentioned that she drove a student back home at lunch time due to some sort of medical condition. CoalGuy's subtitles said "amnesia", which I highly doubt is the case. Not that I'm nitpicking or anything, but could someone clarify what was up with the student?

--EDIT - ROUND 2--

Sawako's fears about her being outed as a former death metal musician did remind me of a news article I read a couple of months ago when a German school fired a teacher just for being a guitarist/frontman for a death metal band.

Uh, I guess it's anemia? That's the closest I can think of.

Sawako isn't worried about being fired. She just doesn't want people to associate her old image with her present self as a teacher. A lot of the teachers she works with now should know her past, since she did go to the same school, so it's not like people don't know. She just doesn't want the students to know. It's bad enough that her students are starting to call her Sawa-chan.

In general, yes. I was just referring to the train of thought that Sawako had shortly before "Christina"/Nurimi called regarding her students suddenly picking up on the whole death metal culture. After all, it doesn't hurt to point out another possible reason for her desire to keep her metal past a secret.

Not sure if I was the first one to notice it, but Yui wasn't wearing her tights with her uniform throughout the episode...

I ahve a question towards those who are experienced in music, did Christine really play something that hard back then in the small cafe? Didn't seem anything big but everyone got impressed, was she playing some hard notes?

Most other guitarists would say it's easy to play. Normally, I'd say "yes" as well, if it weren't for two things:

1.) I'm more of a bassist than a guitarist, and

2.) even as a guitarist, my fretting hand is too used to playing power chords, and I find it hard to play any other type of chords...

The girls of HTT are just a bit star-struck by 'Christine/Christina,' former member of their high school's light music club, back when they put out thrash metal. They're probably impressed by the fact that she's willing to hang out with them, and that she can just take Yui's guitar and play it like she does. In spite of the fact that she's presumably 'grown up' and has a respectable day job.

^But they did say that she might be playing better than Sawako, though it doesn't seem that way for me. But it isn't that important, I was just curiouse so thanks everyone for answers^^

I sure as hell would mind if I had a different gender
Seriously, the guy who dumped her was an idiot.

If you promise to be nice to her, I'll let you be^^

Okay.

Why is everybody calling Sawako a death metal artist when it's pretty clear she isn't playing death metal? Is it the band name? I mean really, it's obvious 80's trash metal.

It's still metal, and the groupe is named Death something. Combine it and we get Sawako a death metal.

Besides I liked this song, saw nothing horrible in it. Was better than some K-ON songs.

I still say it's closer to Hair/Glam metal than anything else. Besides there wasn't anything "death" about that song to even remotely call it death metal.

Edit - Fine for definition's sake:

Death Metal
Glam Metal

Yeah their appearance was really glam metal, but I found the sound more trash, though glam can be pretty shredding as well.

Well to me while they did have the Glam look the sound was more of speed/thrash metal, though I think I heard power metal chords somewhere in there.

This might just have been one of their toned down songs for the wedding. Sawako's introduction as a metal "light" music club member last season gave more a death metal feel with the costumes and verbage used on the one tape we did hear (out of Mio's casette player).

Perception more than actual facts.

I just hope KyoAni will release this version on her second character CD. It will probably be the only good character CD from the K-ON franchise.

Pretty much, though the intro solo sounded more speed/neo classical to me. I loved the closing part, that was such a face melter.

I supposed that we might get a different feel if Sawako once again dons her mask. I would like to see how the HTT gals would adopt to that sort of environment.

This song is out in two weeks from now, actually.

And yes, this song was probably made for the wedding (given the title "LOVE"), so the lyrical theme of the band itself may be misleading.

How was it misleading actually? It was pretty clear that Sawako was singing about love. :x
