My uncultured affairs in the circle of anime (Or my lack of interest/time to watch anime, whichever is more dominant at any particular time) led me to not get importance or possible cameo in that train scene, other than the suspicious thought of "Is there some importance to the foreground person that this scene has somewhat fixated on for the past few seconds?"

On another note. I think the conversation in K-on Ep 4 (and all other Ep thread) are currently quite away from track. Most of things i read recently are useless flaming of "whether K-on is slice of life or music anime" and "how slow the story progress"

I means: there are too little discussion about Ep itself. Someone mentioned Yui sand bird and ask what it refer to, but it died out quickly . Mugi's house and all the pictures on the wall looks quite interesting but barely mentioned. Then the way Mugi herself cry in tear for showing to her friends how rich she is also worth to mention....

Then we have Mio and Ritsu's contradict relationship to the club. Ritsu is the persistent one who pulled everyone, including Mio into the club room. She leads the "group project" trying to get Yui a guitar so they can start practicing. However Ep 4 shows Mio is actually in the leading role when it comes to the actual group activity, and their aims for future achives.

You ought to see some of the shounen episode/chapter discussion threads if you think the K-On! episode discussion thread has done off track; There's only so much you can directly say about an episode, depending on what's going in, in order to keep a discussion thread relevant...

Though in keeping relevance with myself, there's one other point in this episode I'd like to add, on top of the other points I made...

-Mio waking up Yui and Ritsu with her bass (Something I used to do to my cousin when he would spend the night with me)
-Mio playing a Fender bass/Peavey amp setup (I had a personal orgasm because that's my preferred bass setup)
-Fanservice (Cheap trick!)
The entire "Barnacle" debacle could probably become synonymous with "LOL WUT"...

About the Mio/Ritsu apparent switch of roles I think it fits since Mio looks more grounded then Ritsu and, since they already committed to that club might as well dedicate themselves to it.

Lol I agree, hilarious when her friends were jealous. (Gotta love that roundness. I don't think Mio even knows that her bust is bigger sized than average teenage girls around her age lol).

Yui might have something of a reason, but Ritsu especially has a reason to be jealous; Mio is grown out, Ritsu is DFC...It's pretty obvious where that friendship could turn to war...

Consider how short my memory is, and i still remember what you wrote. It proves my points perfectly

But yeah what you said recently make me feel sorry for Ritsu.

See, I used to know 3 kids, who used to be really close friends (always see them hang around each other) and have same height. But few years later, as they grew up, one guy was like 1m90+, another around 1m85, the third guy, strangely enough was only 1m70.
The last time i saw them, each have different friends, in different sport clubs (volleyball, basketball, and football or soccer can't remember....) even when they still in same school if not same class


However..."slice of life" ftw.... we probably have seen the worst of Ritsu and Mio (Uh, oh...now i remember Mio's comment about Ritsu's belly and how sub-text it could be interpreted to..... =O ).

Despite being over the top at times, Mio is still moe to me even without the silly antics like "moe moe kyun" to highlight the point, although the second time round was funnier than the first by a long shot
I think this is my favorite episode so far but it could have been better without the rainbows and Yui suddenly becoming godlike when she wasn't able to remember a damn thing the day before.

Oh c'mon, it's a slice-of-life show! Mugi actually has a bit more depth than we'd seen in earlier episodes, we've been shown that Yui is starting to pick up some skills and Mio, despite her initial reluctance, is really getting into forming this club.

That's not bad at all for a slice-of-life show. I'm not expecting huge changes in characters or plot compared with a drama, but you've got to see at least that.

God is perfect; Yui isn't...Yui only becomes a guitar god when she can actually focus on guitar, at least until her attention wanes to something else; When it wanes, she reverts back to bumbling around a bit...

I don't know how Yui's mind works, nor would I like to take a psychological stab at it, but it's not as if Yui woke up one day and magically had Van Halen skills or whatever...Sure, her attention and lack of thereof is an occasional fault, but what's wrong with it? It's not as if Yui absolutely can't play guitar or anything like that, and it's obvious according to the previous episode that she has been practicing, though it's not exactly known to what extent or what she's practicing, but she's definitely not sitting on her ass doing nothing all day long...

One thing that I noticed is that Ritsu is more like Yui than like Mio.

Probably, before meeting Yui, Ritsu was hiding her true persona because none of her friends was like`er. But when she met Yui, she slowly starts to act the way she really is.

What do you guys thing about that?

Interesting, I don't think he was replying to you, so why are you replying to him?

I see "slice-of-life show" used a lot lately as an excuse for lack of serious character development, however I do not think that they are mutually exclusive. Of course if K-On wants it's characters to be recognized in other ways then that's it's choice to make. I'm open to it, but I have a hard time rationalizing how there could have been any perceived upswing in character development with this episode, when the focus was clearly on other......things.

I'd have to with character exposition, myself, regarding Mio and Mugi's scenes. There was no real development, there - even if the episode itself was quite fun. But exposition? Yes, there was a bit of that - and I think that's where some people might be confused about this subject.
