And when they don't, her charisma bails her out trouble anyway. So, the way I see it, there hasn't been any impetus in Yui's life to be responsible and to generally shape-up.

Retard implies to me something more than airheadedness and silliness. To me, it means a severe deficiency of brain power in power in all areas, and being an idiot savant is only means you have one area you aren't deficient in. As such, I can't see Yui, who can pass (if barely) enough subjects to advance a year or pass an entrance exam to a school someone like Nodoka would pick, as a retard or an idiot savant.
I still think Yui has ADHD-PI (or ADD, as it was once called):
1. She often doesn't give close attention to details or makes careless mistakes in schoolwork, work, or other activities. {Erroneously filling out your career plan, because you overlook a small detail}
2. She often has trouble keeping attention on tasks or play activities. {Not doing her homework, because she practices guitar all night}
3. She often doesn't seem to listen when spoken to directly. {Usually when she's distracted by something, regardless of where it is}
4. She often doesn't follow instructions and fails to finish schoolwork, chores, or duties in the workplace (not due to oppositional behavior or failure to understand instructions). {Falling asleep when doing homework with Nodoka, or just in the class itself}
5. She often has trouble organizing activities. {I don't think we have seen her do any organizing at all}
6. She often avoids, dislikes, or doesn't want to do things that take a lot of mental effort for a long period (such as schoolwork or homework). {Or cleaning up her room}
7. She is often easily distracted. {Make that 'always'}
8. She is often forgetful in daily activities. {Forgetting lyrics, forgetting that she has to study for exams, etc.

I don't think she really loses stuff a lot, though correct me if I'm wrong.

And we might see other stuff, if Ui didn't cover for her in a lot of occasions.

Most of these symptoms might go away once she grows up, and I assume that this is why she's in the LMC – to truly grow up, be more responsible and less dependent on others.

Spoiler for ADD-PI notes:
That's probably a much more credible analysis of Yui and her brain .... I'll retract the "retarded" and "idiot savant" because I was really just being flippant. I'm ADD (not hyperactive) myself, though usually I was told in K-12 that I was lazy or lacked motivation. Problem was, K-12 was such a breeze even in college prep that I often simply forgot the homework... or worse, I'd do it and forget to turn it in. I caught hell in university though as I had no idea how to study as a result of that. I survived because my future wife scheduled me 24/7 and beat me with a tsundere stick (in return, I helped her study to pass physics and chem classes).

Interesting, I missed the memo on the name updates (ADD-PI) ... I wasn't diagnosed until the mid-90s long after college.

On topic, I got my blu-ray of the Let's Go! concert and it was the first thing to go into my new blu-ray reader on my computer. Very... very nice.

No, I'm not talking about the new op and ed, I'm talking about their new character singles.

^I guess you haven't heard of Seven Colors (Nanairo) of Nico Nico Douga. Don't Say Lazy is in it. But yes, I'd want them to make another medley.

A list from Oricon of the most anticipated singles to be released on August 4, which is usually accurate in predicting what singles will top the Oricon singles chart that week. The list suggests that the new OP and ED won't place 1 & 2 like GO!GO!MANIAC and LISTEN!! did.

If so, I believe that'd be more due to the competition than the actual OP and ED themselves.

I guess we'll know in a week from now.

Episode 17 got me thinking what songs Poly Canyon would release for Character Singles. Here's my prediction:

Sawa-chan-sensei: LOVE, GENOM (already released)
Yui: Rice is a Side Dish, Doki Doki Bundoki (I think U&I would be released as a 'band' CD)
Mio: "Bunny in a sweet-smelling forest", *something else*
Ritsu: "Bag goes Bang", *something else*
Azu-nyan: The Ton-chan song, *something else*
Mugi: Honey Sweet Time, those mystery novel lyrics.
