“New Club Member!”
“Shinnyū Buin!” (新入部員!)
Azusa officially joins the club, but is shocked to find everyone drinking tea and eating cake instead of practicing. She yells at them when Sawako tells her off for actually practicing, but Yui manages to calm her down with a surprising tactic. Despite her objections, Azusa finds herself weak against Tsumugi’s tea and cakes. Yui herself is rather shocked that Azusa plays guitar much better than herself. Sawako brings a pair of cat ears for Azusa to wear, much to Azusa’s discomfort, leading Yui to give her the nickname “Azu-nyan”, as “nyan” is the Japanese counterpart of “meow”. Noticing that Azusa is a bit upset, Mio encourages the band to practice more, but the group quickly reverts to its lazy state. Azusa then becomes frustrated, wondering as to why the band members she admired at the live performance behave as they do. After Azusa expresses her frustration, Mio explains to her that she stays in the band because they have fun performing together and because they like each other, thus convincing Azusa to stay.
