K-On!! – Episode 17

“No Club Room!”
“Bushitsu ga Nai!” (部室がない!)

The club room is closed for repairs, leaving the girls nowhere for practice. While trying to find a suitable location for their practicing, the girls try to come up with lyrics for the song Tsumugi wrote. Failing to find anywhere in the school to practice, they rent out a studio, but end up wasting time discussing lyrics and run out of time before they can practice, though the club room reopens the next day. The following night, Ui helps Yui write some lyrics, but ends up catching a cold, leaving Yui, who has always relied on her, to look after her instead. Realizing how important she is to her, Yui writes some lyrics dedicated to Ui, which are approved by the other club members. Continue reading “K-On!! – Episode 17”

K-On!! – Episode 16

“Upperclassmen!”
“Senpai!” (先輩!)

When Azusa comes to the realization that the light music club has been slacking as of late, she becomes determined to practice more. Azusa runs into Tsumugi alone in the club room and tries giving her some guitar lessons. She later is about to get a chance to practice alone with Mio, but is interrupted when Ritsu requires help from Mio and the girls end up spending the evening at Ritsu’s house. The next day, Azusa runs into Yui in the club room hoping to practice, but ends up cleaning Ton’s tank and helping her with understanding how to play the song Tsumugi composed, as she cannot read sheet music. Yui reminds Azusa that she is who she is, and personalizes her keychain. Continue reading “K-On!! – Episode 16”

K-On!! – Episode 15

“Marathon Tournament!”
“Marason Taikai!” (マラソン大会!)

Upon returning to school after summer vacation, the girls learn of a school-wide 5000 metres marathon race, which Yui is not keen on participating in. Seeing the marathon course while riding in Sawako’s car does little to make her look forward to it. During the race, Yui constantly gets distracted and later everyone starts getting tired, trying to come up with various ways to keep them motivated. After reaching the top of a steep hill, the girls discover Yui has gone missing and go search for her. When Ui hears about this, she deduces that Yui had been staying at the old lady’s house after scraping her knee. At the final stretch, Yui assumes that there will not be mochi served to the person in last place, causing everyone to make a dash for the ending, resulting in Mio, who did not want to finish last due to it being embarrassing, performing an extravagant roll upon tripping at the finish line. While everyone enjoys red bean soup and rice cakes, Sawako is still searching for Yui. Continue reading “K-On!! – Episode 15”

K-On!! – Episode 14

“Summer Training!”
“Kaki Kōshū!” (夏期講習!)

Unable to get Mio to hang out with her, Ritsu runs into Tsumugi who decides to hang out with her. They go to an arcade and then to a candy store, where Tsumugi is fascinated by all the cheap items. Meanwhile, Yui has Nodoka over to help with her homework, and gets upset when she eats the strawberry off her cake. Later, Tsumugi asks Ritsu to hit her, wanting the same bond she has with Mio, but Ritsu cannot bring herself to do it. As a compromise, Ritsu attempts to train Tsumugi to be dopey enough that Mio would hit her instead, but to no avail. Hoping to make an opportunity, Tsumugi eats the strawberry off Mio’s cake, but this just makes her cry. Having given up when a direct request to Mio also fails, Tsumugi finally gets hit when she implies Ritsu would be popular with the girls if she was a boy. Continue reading “K-On!! – Episode 14”
