I disliked it at first, but it slowly grew on me after a few more listens and I found myself unable to stop listening to the song.

Hmm, never bothered by that. But I feel that the song is the type which is good to listen with the video clip rather than only the song alone. Same goes with Utauyo!! MIRACLE.

Yup, that's why I didn't really liked it at first. However, it grew on me.

The song showed that Yoko Hikasa is still merely a beginner at singing, even though her voice has a lot of potential. But, this is something she'll learn to overcome the more she does it. And given that she has had quite a few roles in the mean time (of which few were major characters), I'm sure she'll be fine.

I actually liked that little "yelp" she ends notes on, made her sound a bit animal sexy. Actually, that's purely a Mio voice affectation. She doesn't do that in singing other character voices that I've noticed.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure those little squeals are intentional. Not unheard of, either--the Kooks' singer uses that technique pretty often, as does the singer for Swedish power metal band Nocturnal Rites.

I knew they were intentional (or more accurately; it never actually occurred to me that they might not be) but I didn't know they were "Mio exclusive". That's pretty interesting. Normally I wouldn't like those little "squeals" but in this case they're so slight that it doesn't come across as some phony "attitude" (which is what I would find annoying) but perhaps more of an ever-so-slight insecurity (that's otherwise very well disguised) in Mio's singing, which fits her character. That may not be the intention, but it works for me.

yup, i have noticed that on the songs that Mio sings. although in some of the songs, it is not that prominent, or noticeable. (i don't think she does that in Pure Pure Heart, but i guess i haven't tried to listen hard enough).

but that style of singing of hers is fine by me. and it kinda suits some of her songs. (the "technique" is very prominent in Don't Say Lazy, which i think is a great touch to the song). it makes her sound more "sexy".

Oh yeah, the slow part of the bridge in No, Thank You is quite ok. a slow bridge in a rock song before the instrumental solo is nice. cuts through the tension. (like the slow bridge in Metallica's Master of Puppets). and it is also present on other songs of HTT, like Utauyo Miracle.

(but i haven't heard of Yoko having another role this season, i was probably wasn't searching that hard. so what anime?)

Hey guys, i was thinking......

...wouldn't it be awesome if Houkago Tea Time played at festivals at Coachella or SXSW?

Seriously, i would pay to go to a hot sweaty hippie rock festival if it features Yui and the Gang in a lineup with Nick Cave, Magnetic Man and Arcade Fire.

And you'll have sweaty otakus sitting side-by-side with pot-smoking hippies and hipsters from Austin/LA. Now that is an atmosphere i support.

"UkiUki New! My Way" also managed to top the iTunes (Japan) song chart in the Anime genre... momentarily. It sat at number 6 last I checked.

Ui's character song is pretty good, after all.

I heard that Satomi is taking a break right now.

And i was really shocked at Ayana doing Rio RainbowGate though. After K-On!, i expected her to have another seiyuu role with a OreImo scale, and voicing a child in RioGate is not what i or any other Ayana fan have in mind. STill a good voice for a mediocre anime.
