Obviously 26 is not quite enough to cover all that, and with 12 remaining of that, no less.

YES PLEASE to a College Years Third Season!!
Where did you hear about this??? You gotta have some kind of proof when it comes to this kind of stuff.

Just checked the HQ version of the ending and their uniforms really remind me of the AKB's ones. In that that it's not a school or university uniform per se, but more of a stage costume : they even put HTT on their blazon.
Gosh, the more I watch this ending, the more addicted I become u_u'...

Yes, the "chipmunk" was less strong in the new OP ... my wife tends to be seriously anti-chipmunk so imagine she'll down-thumb it but will probably like the ED. The new OP's visuals are very "Monkees"-like or a bit "Help!" (Beatles) in absurdist bits.
I'm not going to judge the new OP and ED until I've heard it a few times... I initially didn't care much for "Go! Go! Maniac" and "Listen" either but they grew on me after a couple episodes. Especially the former... I seem to be one of the few people who really, really likes GGM. My girlfriend said she didn't like it, my brother and best friend were less... "charitable" in their comments. And I'm guessing my parents are just glad I use headphones, although to be honest I'm tempted to play it for them, just for a laugh.

I liked this episode! ^-^ Mugi is odd but cute, as always (:

Btw, am I the only one who likes RitsuxMugi? 8D Though I do prefer Ricchan with Mio (who dosn't like Mitsu?), Yui *shot* and Azunyan *shotshotshot*

Can't wait for subs!

The ED reminded me of something from the pre-Azusa days...

OP, Yui was cute and she's the only one I found cute on it. not that catchy but I giggled on a few parts. ED, hey Mugi wearing sneakers and her school uniform's top button was open, ooh nice. though I don't expect it to be that way. I thought ojou-sama would always be proper. Ricchan is just win <3

Yeah, I noticed that ED-Yui is the only one of the five without a loosened tie. Seems a bit weird that at least Mugi and Azusa would look like that, but I figure that they're portraying music video characters as opposed to being themselves.

I did forgot Mugi-chwan loves dressing up and experiments with it, and a school uniform is still a school uniform though she's... still pretty cool on it...


so this ep's start was Ritsu x Mugi's date! YAAA TAA!!! been waiting for that! can't wait for subs.

Mugi: Just a moment pwease! (did I heard it right? LOL)

And the allergic-to-English Ritsu's response is "Why English?"

Not really shown, but Yui needs to learn from Mio playing the guitar with gloves.

Absolutely hilarious episode. Even without subs, the jokes were pretty easy to get. Mugi is a bucket of laughs for this episode. It's nice how far they took the "please hit me" joke from the manga. And yes, Mugi, I can see why Ritsu would be popular with the ladies. Too bad she has a scary bassist right behind her. However, the best part of the episode is Mugi taking Mio's strawberry. Yui and Mio reactions were pure win. Yui's reaction in particular is a great brick joke. I can relate to going great lengths just to win an argument.

The OP's animation was nice but the ED was fraught with "ways to save on animation without being shaft" techniques. In particular, Mio's mouth is most of the time obscured by her microphone. This is due to the fact that animating the mouth properly is pretty hard, hence the existence of cheeky mouths. There's also the fact that Azusa and Mugi's hands are obscured while they were playing, another particularly tricky part to animate.

I really like OP. The more I watch it the better it gets, kinda like GO! GO! MANIAC!. It really represents the core appeal of K-On, genuine feeling high school hijinks. The can-can dance thing brought back quite a few high school memories. The ED is also really good in that its about or slightly above Don't say Lazy's level. The music is quite good. However it feels forgettable. There's nothing like Listen!'s Cake/Fly Mio thing or Don't Say Lazy's... everything. Instead it has generic sky backgrounds. I somehow feel that its gonna sound really old real quick.

Finally:

Mugi: taking the term "moeblob"to whole new levels. (God, I hate that term)

Actually after this episode, Mugi/Ritsu idea sounds nice

I actually was expecting to see jealouse Mio through whole thing

In the credits, you can see the difference in the number of animators between the OP and ED(There are 29 animators credited to be working on the OP, while the ED has 10). You'll also see there were two directors credited for the OP(Naoko Yamada and Tatsuya Ishihara) while the ED has one(Naoko Yamada).

Yet ED still looks much better despite all that.

Opinions. I prefer the OP's visuals to ED myself.

Guess this episode shows if K-ON! was a dating sim how a Mugi route would have worked.
