Summary

It’s the start of a new school year, and the new crop of freshmen are coming in… most importantly, Ui is now a high schooler!

Yui, Mugi, and Ritsu end up in the same class, which leaves lil Mio a victim of the Kagami Konundrum – you’re all aloneeee, there’s nobody there beside youuuu…. except Nodoka, but she’s purposely drawn not as cute as the other chars and therefore an afterthought. Unless you’re into short-haired seito kaichou meganekko that aren’t as good looking as the rest of the cast.

The amount of time that transpires between each episode is a bit startling at times, as only eight episodes in and we’ve gone full circle back to club recruiting again. It seems like they were able to do this by combining episodes – onsen ep with beach ep, for example, and by completely skipping the “visit the rich girl’s house” ep. It’s not necessarily a bad way to go, it’s just a little disorienting at times. Especially when it comes to Yui’s guitaring ability. More on this later.

Sawachan-sensei provides them with some costumes, which don’t really make much sense as they show off absolutely no skin, but immediately salvages it with maid costumes worthy of a good design award. Ui brings along her not so cute friend, which is probably the most accurate indication that there’s no way in hell the girl is gonna join the club.

Fast forward to their next live performance – this time, they’ve got a lineup of four songs, all with some trademark Mio frilly name like “My Love is a Stapler”. Yui owns the intro riff but forgets to sing again, but Mio is there for the rescue.

After such an epic performance, you’d think the club room would be filled with eager schoolgirls, but nope – they’re just there to enjoy the show, not be a part of it. But at the end theres one girl to save the day and her name was azusa 😛
Welcome to K-ON BU

Personal Thoughts

Not a bad episode, Introduction to Ui passing her exams and getting to high school as well as the new song we got to hear “My love is a stapler” which i liked alot because of the duet :P.
Oh not to forget the new member Azusa who will be a great member XD
I’ll rate this episode 8/10
