K-ON! – 03

April 23, 2009 | Author: | In: Anime Blogs, K-ON

H-I-R-A- Damn, gotta start again.

The education system is unduly harsh on Yui. The poor girl can barely walk and chew gum at the same time, and now she has to deal with midterms. Give her a break, you academic assassins of joy.

High-scorers, the lot of ‘em

Episode 3 only contains one plot-line: Yui’s struggle to pass an exam. With her focus constantly wavering, she gets a little help from her musical friends – mainly Mio this time around. A couple of the side characters also get more of a look-in.

Ah yes, castanets. Those were simpler times…

Nodoka: I have to wonder how Yui managed to make it through life without the help of her sharper friend. Having known Yui for so long, Nodoka even has a chance to dish up some embarassing memories to share with the rest of the band.

Welcome to Casa de Hirasawa, please enjoy your stay!

Ui: Yui’s younger sister is a sweet girl with a mature attitude. She’s also more “together” than Yui, prompting Ritsu wonder out loud whether Ui was the one who inherited the good genes. Ui’s even diplomatic enough not to trash-talk her sister. Has all the signs of a future homemaker.

Definitely deserves the victory sign

Of course, this being a feel-good anime, Yui triumphs after coping with multiple distractions (the goofy smile she has when practising guitar always cracks me up) and an all-day cram session. In the process, she even discovers the mysterious X and Y guitar chords.

Editorial: This review was late because I kept getting hit with flu symptoms. orz

That Mini guy is so useless! Hahaha!

Yeah, thanks for the support, gang. I’ll just have to take comfort by imagining that Ritsu’s looking contemplative because she’s thinking about me.

That Mini guy, he’s such a blogosphere dreamboat. *sigh*

“blogosphere dreamboat”?

Is that somewhat like a NICE BOAT?

I hope not; a yandere Ritsu would be too much for me to handle.

I’ll approve of this on the condition that Mio is the recipient of Ritsu’s “affection”.

Agreed. So long as Yui is the recipient of Ritsu’s…yan-yan. That’s what I’m going to call it, “yan-yan”.

Whoa, hey, that is definitely not what I said. I don’t want a world without my airhead-moe.

I <3 Yui in the bit before the OP, playing with Mio’s fingers. So kawaii!

@ Sleet

It really works well with the “puni puni~” sound.

@phossil

Even better, in the manga: Yui frames the test sheet and puts it on her bedroom wall.
