Be wary of using the "urbandictionary" as a useful reference - it is regularly trolled and full of misinformation.

To be a bit more on target, "moe" is the *feeling* of protectiveness in a loving sense that swells over a person. A girl, loli, bishoujo doesn't "have" moe, she is not moe -- but she creates the feeling of "moe" in the observer. Subtle difference but its why one can have "moe" for a wide variety of people and things.

An aside, the term "moe-blob" is a dismissive term to describe a character that the user thinks is shallowly designed to evoke moe in the viewers.

Yes and "Houkago" means roughly "afterschool" so the band's name in English is "After School Tea Time".

Just a nitpick, it's "Houkago" not houkage.

Japanese High Schools starts at Spring (April), until the end of term (late July) and summer break that lasts a good amount of time until September (and within that long break, activities like club and others are done). They get midterms around October and have their term-end exams around December. Third term starts early January until late March where the term ends (and Graduation for seniors kick in).

So yeah, they graduate in March.

The school year starts in April.

The most recent manga has reached New Years Eve of their third year. Don't know if the second anime season will reach all the way to graduation or if they'll possibly save that for the future instead.

No. It is done by fans who think that Azunyan will be lonely after all her seniors leave. Either way, They need another character to complete a full 2-by-2 pairing in the keionbu (Yui x Azunyan, Ritsu x Mio, Mugi x Akane).

From what we know, Mugi doesn't seem out of place since she enjoys observing her bandmates through Mugivision™.

You are correct... the *basis* for most of the daydreams were minor 4-panel gags of manga actual events. Most of them were changed a bit in Azusa's daydreams though - I imagine to say "gotcha" to the manga readers who were expecting a different punchline. One or two of the daydreams were anime-only though.

^ Thanks for answering. As a follow up question...
Which chapters are the daydreams based off?

Full version here.

If her hair wasn't purple it might have looked a bit more legit. Still it's nice to see such effort by fans.

Come to think of it, Azunyan looks ridiculously cute in the full length pic.
