Not bad for an episode that delivered an adequate character improvements for the junior trio. Seems like they really tried to negate their utter boredom while the main heroines were out of town and having fun.

Jun kinda reminds me of Ritsu without the full-energetic persona and ability to come up some humorous gags. Azusa, meanwhile, averts herself from being serious. She looks gorgeous on her hair down rather than her regular twin-tail. Ui stood out the most among them. She really cares for Yui with her mother-like figure, and I was amazed on her hax skills by just observing like Nanami from Katanagatari.

Also, what I liked from this episode was the presence of rain and its purpose, ensuring the mix of canon materials and original ideas. Hoping for some interesting events for the next installment.

Squiers aren't beginner guitars, though more towards intermediate. I own a Mut-tan scheme Ibanez GTX-140, and I must say the sound quality is better than that of a Squier.

If only I have enough money to get my hands on a Mustang (and that girl)......

Well that's the "hime" side of her. At least it made her look like her "elder sis".

That's called siscon. And it takes one to behave and know another.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Mugi has a ton of expensive stuff there I can see it as a hand me down if she has a little sister.
According to the DVD character profile, Mugi is an only child. Although, I don't think it's been stated outright in the show itself...

Ui's siscon doesn't seem to project towards defense against Azusa. When Yui drags Azusa off Ui's smiling seeing Yui happy.

My favourite episode of Season 2 so far. It's nice to see the minor characters given a bit of personality rather than just being "there". And this episode might have just made Azusa take Mio's place as my favourite K-ON character.

Who tried to do the finger stretching exercise that Azusa did? It's ridiculously hard at first, but okay once you get the hang of it.

Also, skull.

*raises hand* I did. I never knew about it until now lol XD It's not really 'ridiculously hard' as you've put it, but that's just my opinion since I play bass and guitar.

The slice-of-life aspect really felt more natural in this season than the first thus far. Any drama doesn't feel forced either.

But yeah, the lack of BGM in this episode disturbs me after watching this a second time. Cutting costs?

Maybe the third years took the BGM with them to Kyoto.

That is called a yandere's smile.

No, no. I've seen yandere smiles before...they are much more unnatural and creepy in context. Maybe she's accepted Azusa as Yui's pet cat....or Ui wants threesome.

Ui seems to be fond of Azusa too so I wouldn't be suprised

No, artistic decision. The lack of music reflects how empty the school seems and is a foreshadow of the daily hole in their lives to come after the seniors graduate. When the music *does* arrive, it is a metaphor about them "making their own BGM/music". Basically the episode is a foreshadow of the bittersweetness of life transitions.

There, that's enough film-making technique over-analysis for now

I think Azunyan is just plain attractive because she looks and acts ridiculously cute. Either that, or that Ui must be plotting something really evil.

P.S Azunyan is mine. Everyone hands off!

I married her! She's mine! Go away!

The thing about Mio is that she's the perfect sweet and pretty girlfriend every guy would fight for. Her "bijin" appearance is enough to draw suitors forming a line as long as the human combined DNA strand.

Her little sis is just the opposite, but incredibly cute and cuddly in appearance and character. So yeah, it depends on whether you are a lolicon or pervert what kind of girl you would find perfect in your dreams.
