Oh yeah.. I forgot.. .getting to see them in multiple garbs is always refreshing. In general I think the episode reinforced that these are definitely UPPER middle class students (even Ritsu) with Mugi being the outlier Shogunate Princess.

I really enjoyed watching this episode I only found out about K-on half a year a go and watched the 1st & 2nd seasons within a short time. Its nice to watch a new episode and I
really enjoyed seeing them outside of school. Since its been a while I'm a bit confused about the timeline and where the movie fits in but I'm looking forward to the movie after watching this episode. I smiled when I saw the Canada travel book on YUI's table.

Yui is such a great "Funny Man" type.

This anime has really done a great job molding her into that. Her wonderful sense of (sometimes unintentional) humor came off well here.

The chemistry throughout ATT as a whole is excellent. Their personalities come together, and blend, and bounce off of each other, with such graceful and natural ease. It's funny to say this about a show that's escapist entertainment for many viewers (and probably intended to be that), but this anime may be the most realistic one I've seen. Character interactions just flow so believably and never feel forced to me.

With this in mind, I love the detail that this episode went into when it comes to researching where to go on vacation, and the process of getting a passport. It's pretty amazing that an anime episode that devotes so much time to something as potentially tedious as getting a passport can still be quite entertaining.

Yui's attempts at English in this episode were pretty good. Her "No rice, no life" comment was TK (Angel Beats!) worthy.

Nice to see Canada at least get referenced on that one cover.


This episode was a joyous watch, particularly after 10 episodes of the much darker Madoka Magica.

Haha. Agreed. Her pantomiming could use some work though.

This episode was really enjoyable overall. One of the better episodes of the entire second season, I'd say. Made me remember how much enjoyment I really do get out of K-On.

Something about that scene just transcended cuteness and overloaded my senses. Don't know what it was, but it was so, so adorable. And yeah, making something mundane fun to watch is pretty much K-On's bread and butter. I loved every minute of it too; thoroughly excellent episode.

Fourth film would be a nearly pointless trip around the Bullet Train route while tripping on acid with a huge cast of weird people (Magical Mystery Tour).
Actually, I think that's the other way around (Magical Mystery Tour first, then Yellow Submarine).

Speaking of Beatles and K-On: in response to that image of Mio walking down Abbey Road: Mio is dead, man. Miss her. Miss her.

An excellent episode, it was enjoyable the whole time really. Though makes me really wish the movie does cover their trip, I am sure it would be interesting and fun to watch

Well, previous information said the movie takes place before graduation, while the trip will surely take place after. But on the other hand; I really can't imagine the movie not being about the trip - because if it's not, then what was the point of this episode? Spending some more time with the HTT girls, sure, but it came across as set-up for a bigger story. Right now, I'm thinking "movie is pre-graduation" was bad info...

(Also; if the movie isn't about their trip - what the heck is it about? What else could they possibly do that would warrant a feature film?)

While they called it a graduation retreat, I believe they said that the trip would be after their examinations, which doesn't necessarily mean it'd be after graduation as well. It wouldn't be bad info if that turned out to be the case, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see. I can't really imagine why they would make this episode and not make the movie follow up on it either.

It would probably have to be, if Azusa is to come with them.

It would be awesome if we could actually see them on said trip, and having a concert side event with it.

Like, you know, maybe in the movie?

I haven't seen Azunyan for a long time so......

WHAT IS WRONG WITH HER? WHY IS SHE SO RIDICULOUSLY CUTE! DAMMIT I AM GETTING DIABETES!

And her dress style doesn't fit at all. She is so loli, but she's wearing an open back and white miniskirt? Though Mio standing right beside her with a ponytail makes them look absolutely like sisters. Well, at least Yui is right about her being a grade schooler.

There are plenty of rock era references :

Yui - ?
Azunyan - Apollo Theater (NYC Jazz Club)
Mio - Abbey Road (Beatles)
Ritsu - ?
Mugi - Finland (Air Guitar World Championships)

Their English is horrendous. And I wonder how Azunyan is going to pass to go overseas since she looks like a 12-year-old.

P.S Mugi's "The more the merrier" sounds disturbing.

I think Ritsu would fit just fine in Detroit being the Rock 'n' Roll city.

No idea about Yui. Not musical wise at least.

What was that ? Yui had a Canada travel book ?Oh yes... I can see it now. Going to Banff, seeing the elk and the bears and the hot water springs and like 1/4 of the tourists there are Japanese, so they wouldn't feel lost.

They can go to the Japanese gardens in Lethbridge where Mio may fall in love with a Japanese Cowboy dude.... or no....

Thanks to Lucky Star and Seitokai Yakuindomo I can only imagine something bizarre happening when Yui goes to interact with the elks .
