Personally I'd prefer if the author had more imagination than that.

Somehow I have a wild speculation about who Sumire is XD

Saitou Sumire -->> Mugi's butler is named Saitou too (dunno whether that is family name or not)

^ that might explain her prowess at making tea and also her Japanese nature despite her appearance lol

Good catch there... Saitou is indeed a family name.

Hmmmm. I wonder if she was ordered to make sure Azusa wasn't lonely by Mugi. Or if she simply is trying to retrieve the china for the family because it seems odd for Mugi to just leave it there.

I woinder if she is Mugi's illegitimate half sister (mother's side of the family since Mugi's eyebrows are obviously from her father's side of the family)

Guess we will have to wait another month or so to find out anything else

So it's not theft after all...she's merely taking the tea sets back for Tsumigi-sama.

She's probably a one time cameo character. More fun characters to come. Did I read that right ? Jun is moving from bass to guitar ?

In Kakifly's tradition of naming characters based off bands(the main 5 girls from P-Model, the side characters from The Pillows), it seems the new college girls' surname(and if you're Kanji savvy, part of their given-name) are from these guys.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triceratops_(band)

With this, we can make an estimate of what instrument the girls play as well.

Akira plays guitar.
Sachi plays bass.
Ayame plays drums.

It's a bit weird that for three years, nobody ever questions Mugi's heritage, yet when Sumire comes along, everybody assumes she's a foreigner and therefore only speaks English. I do like the idea of her being related to Mugi's butler though. Perhaps Mugi purposely left the tea sets behind as a gift to the new LMC?

And I have to say, I find the fact that Azusa was trying to copy Mio adorable.

Jun = new Ritsu
Azusa = new Mio
Ui = new Mugi
Sumire = new Azunyan

(Yui is too unique to have her character archetype recycled.)

Or more precisely,

Jun = Ritsu ∩ Yui
Ui = Mugi ∩ Yui
Sumire = Mio ∩ Mugi
Azunyan = Mio ∩ Ritsu

LOL. Do they really have to be "new someone else", can't they just be themselves?

When I watched 1st episode of K-ON! I was still in Hyakko withdrawal, so I thought Yui was "new Ayumi", Mio was "new Itsuka", Ritsu was "new Torako" and Mugi... well, I wasn't sure Sounds pretty ridiculous now, doesn't it?

They'll be themselves of course it's just common that in a story in which the juniors have some similar traits with their seniors

Looking forward for the new college chapter that'll arrive in about a week

The problem is that Kakifly doesn't even try changing the group dynamics. In case of Sumire, she can be described precisely as looking like Mugi, acting like Mio, and is supposed to play like Ritsu. I know that today isn't the time for experimental anime (LOL Fractale), but this is starting to make the audience feel like they are being taken for fools (which may or may not be a truth).

Now that you mention it... I also see that Azusa, Ui, and Jun's situation resembled their seniors, where the first members of the club is Ritsu, Mio, and Mugi. And we can easily say that Azusa -> Mio, Ui -> Mugi, and Jun -> Ritsu.

If that's the case, Sumire might fill the airhead role (I mean, there's no way she could steal the cupboard by dragging that all by herself, right? XD)

The speculation is that Mugi is half-Finnish, half-Japanese and raised as Japanese. Whereas Ana Coppola *cough* Sumire apparently looks/acts different enough to raise questions.

Yeah.... it does look a bit too familiar...

I guess the main reason Mugi's heritage was never really questioned (at least by the other HTT members) was because she spoke Japanese when she was first introduced...
(and Sumire was introduced trying to steal a cupboard)
Azusa left her hair down briefly, but I thought she despised being called a "Japanese doll" (just to look more like Mio)?

Well Mugi did speak first before Ritsu and Mio saw her, so they would have no reason to assume anything. Also this second meeting was with Azusa, Jun, and Ui...who all met Mugi after she was part of the Light Music Club, thus having no reason to assume anything...well, at least not having to assume she only spoke English. They speculate a bit about Mugi as it is since they've never been to her main house and Mugi makes efforts to not flaunt her money. Azusa and Ui knows Mugi has a butler for instance (Ritsu knows this as well, having spoken to him over the phone).

Didn't know the new manga was already available, but new chapters were a lot of fun to read!


Wonder about the layout of their dorm though - assuming the girls were in the common room that night based on how the new characters just popped into the area, I guess they're not in a suite but single rooms? I was hoping they'd be in a four-bedroom suite though...

Sokabe living so close to Mio is , and Yui already has a nickname for her? Well, it's not surprising.

Ooh, nice. Maybe her mother's a maid who followed Mugi's mother to Japan.

If Sumire joins the LMC, would that mean K-ON! will continue for 2 or more seasons? I'd be worried if it does...

If Sumire-chan and Mugi-chan should ever meet....

The universe would divide by zero and implode from sheer cuteness.
