This week's out of context quotes:

Mugi: "Seeing [Yui and Azusa] pair up would be nice for a change"

Ritsu: "Whatcha think about RitsuMio?"


Evil preview, tricking me into thinking it woud be a Mugi-centric episode for a couple of seconds...

I am really hoping that being able to understand the dialogue will make this episode better. Having watched the raw, it looks like the typical Yui-centric episode, and those tend to make my skin crawl.

Oddly, this may be one of my favorite episodes so far because it just oozes "slice" and subtle human comedy. Lots Azu-nyan reliable cuteness as well. Interesting remix of "Fountain Pen" and manzai routine for the oldsters.

1) Apparently, we're only going to get partial songs (to drive CD sales one assumes). Meh.
2) Short Yukata for the win.
3) Azunyan with a harisen for the win.
4) off-shoulder fashion looks for Mio/Azunyan.
5) Ritsu can cause laughter just with her jaunty stance and expression.
6) Idiot-savant Yui who can channel test scores without comprehending any of it.
7) Azunyan versus enka ... 0-1 but 10-0 for the hilarity.

I assume the "YuiAzu" was an oblique reference to Puffy AmiYumi. There are probably other "joe-bob" named groups as well.

Note - coalguys substituted "Oh My Darling Clementine" for the actual folk tune.... not a bad job of localization, but I don't enjoy "localization". lets see what the other fansubs did with it.

As Yui and Azusa were talking about studying, my thoughts were "Wow, this is some really mundane stuff"

I has some tears in my eyes, laughing at Yui's singing when I was watching the Raw.

My first thought was YuiKaori, which is somewhat strange since I happened to be come across a AmiYumi video just last night...

By the way, did anyone else notice the unusual framing from time to time? The teacher is shown from the mouth up, with the blackboard taking up much (but still not all) of the image. When Yui thinks about the whether to enter the talent show, she's in the corner, like there's supposed to be a big thought bubble or something. And when Ritsu is told about the old woman's similarity to her, she's in the same position as the teacher, taking up less than half of the frame's height (as opposed to, say, a close up her, focusing on the forehead).

I enjoyed this episode, especially the part where Yui reminds herself to get shoyu and not some other thing ^^

And also YuiAzu practicing enka

Aaaand a cameo of Yui's seatmate aka Himeko

"Whatcha think of RitsuMio?" Oh I think that's very lovely XD

And man I thought next epi would be about Mugi, but dayuuum! Give the girl some love!

...

I was also surprised by the self-promotion clip; I was like, "Who are these people!!?" O.O

Great episode very good balance of being a slice of life and comedy episode. My favorite being when Azu-nyan, and Yui were "studying":
Spoiler for Studying Scene:


Also YuiAzu, and RitsuMio both sound good to me .

YuiAzu is cool

and

MioRitsu is also cool.....

it kinda felt bad for me to think that Mugi is kinda left alone...... =(

because for me.... it seems that there are no perfect character for Mugi to be someone close to..... even in the first place..... I kinda felt that the three girls(Ritsu, Mio, Yui) are better even without Mugi in there.... Mugi has no chemistry between them as far as I can see....

Mugi is aware of that space but hopefully we'll get to see how she addresses it.

Amazing! A Yui-centric episode where Yui isn't a freakin' imbecile! That, by itself, gives this episode a +1 bonus. Anyway, we have a touching episode where Yui enters a talent show on behalf of her kindly old neighbor. While trying to study for finals. Somehow, Azusa gets mixed up in it, and the musical duo YuiAzu is born! We get some music (as much music as we usually get from K-ON!! anyway,) and the savant part of Yui's idiot-savant personality gets her chance to shine (mostly.)

Eight Sawa-chans suffering from withdrawal out of ten! Mugi's sweets really are addictive!

Yeah, I'll chime into that as well. Apparently someone was listening to me last week.

I want that shamisen-esque remix like yesterday, I fucking love shamisen.

Nice episode. Even though Yui is still her same old personality (like confusing the Soy with Sugar), the episode shows how she's changed as well....

Before this episode I don't think Yui has ever offered to help Ui with an errand, nor has she ever practiced playing her guitar outdoors in consideration of her sister. It's always been Yui playing guitar in her room or goofing off while Ui does all the work. Not to mention that she also went out of her way to please 'ba-chan. So I think this episode really shows how much she's changed since the beginning... even though she's still goofy as hell xD .

Yeah, it's really nice to see Yui completely dedicated to doing something.

Azusa trying to sing enka is incredibly adorable.

I was expecting Grandma to die by the end of the episode, but ehhh. I forgot this was K-On!! I'm watching...

YuiAzu aside, the soulmate comment about Ritsu made me blush for some reason.

Me too! I'm always game for Mugi episodes...but it seems to be about Sawa-chan. Maybe it's the sick chapter?
