The Who is my favorite band, I love Ritsu, and I'm a drummer. So this episode was one of my favorites in the series. Keith Moon is god-like, a good inspiration for Ritsu .

I have been poking around and I believe that her normal style has her tying her blazer around her waist. I can't seem to remember where I saw those pictures that pointed it out. If you look closely, you can see hints of the normal skirt design.

So yeah, I guess she's part of the normal roster afterall.

Finally some time to write something down...

I liked the top of Ritsu's head making a subtle foreground appearance as the other are talking about Ton-chan. Ritsu also got plenty of opportunity to be overly dramatic during the episode.

Loved Azusa's guitar lesson. This is the kind of thing they can do more often: Have short moments of "this is how you make this kind of sound on that instrument", to add to the musical part of the show. Doing practice segments wouldn't be as complicated to animate compared to having to match a specific song either. Of course, it doesn't take long for Ritsu to remember why she didn't play guitar in the first place...

Sawako's reaction to Ritsu talking about how radiating she is, is to sit there and basically go "Oh yeah, I'm perfectly aware of how good I look"

Come to think of it, the photographer meant yet another male appearance on the show. The... fifth, or something...

The return of the miner's helmet is exactly on the level of my sense of humor.
Yui: "Cagayake Ricchan!"
Ritsu: *whimper*

Yui does her best to help her friends. Sure, it might not be the smartest of ideas, but she's got her heart in the right place. Poor Ritsu's brother and parents; one can only wonder what her constant drum practicing must've sounded like over the recent years...

Interesting that based on Sawako's lesson, the Kyoto trip takes place the day after this episode. No hurry to get to graduation then.

Spoiler for next episode:

Mugi speaking in Kansai-ben? That would be awesome.

And yeah, this would be THE change for KyoAni to show of their hometown.

Well, she already had that idea earlier, in a literal sense:

Great episode it was much humorous than first, or second episode especially Yui's ideas like have them "communicate" with Ritsu by glaring at her randomly during the songs . And Mio bass part was really cute and showed she's still way cute than Yui to me... though Azu-nyan still cutest .

Not really much else I can say that hasn't already been said... Well I great Episode and once again Ritsu got to shine I really hope they continue this formula and flush out the other girls characters. I would love to see what makes Mugi tick.

This was easily one of the best episodes yet. A great blend of comedy and cuteness, and a focus on the musical side of things too. Ritsu crying like a baby bird and Yui's "jakka jakka" air guitar (and looking over her shoulder at a bemused Ritsu) were both excellent. More so, Ritsu trying out Giita pretty much mirrors my experience a month or so ago, when I first bought my guitar. Right down to the same chord! That damn E major caused me so many problems, the first couple of weeks...

So far, this series is completely surpassing the first. They've attained a much better balance of the cutesy moe aspects, the comedy and the musical aspect. I'm looking forward to hearing some new songs. Did Mugi really have to call the new one "Honey Sweet Tea Time", though? It's hard enough convincing friends of mine that the songs are worthwhile, without them having such saccharine names. At least "Fuwa Fuwa Time" was in Japanese!
"I will never give up on you, for all the times you've sat and sang to me, trying to make me better.
So now, I'm trying to let you know that this is the English way to make us all fit back together..."

Well, the lyrics and titles do make Sawako and Ritsu cringe (or at least in season one...).

The daffy lyrics certainly do juxtapose over the (for anime music) unusually edgy instrumentals.

First we have Yui doing Guitar windmill and now a reference to Keith Moon. There's some "The Who" adoration happening here. Could Mio be a closet Entwistle fan ?

Could be. Mio is know to be a closet fan/fetishist (including Lumo, cute stuff, etc) for quite alot of things, which Ritsu knows most.

Which spouse doesn't know much about their partners.

When three puppygirls named after pastries are on top of each other, it is called Eclair a'la menthe et Biscotti aux fraises avec beaucoup de Ricotta sur le dessus.
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.

Evaluation of Episode 3

I think this episode is "6 out of 10 : Average".
Yui, Mio, and various characters are so cute as always. However, I don't find the plot very interesting.

I guess those who are absorbed in playing musics can enjoy this episode.
On the other hand, I have never playing any musical instruments, so I can't understand what the 5 members say
