Lol, Hana's energy never ceases to surprise me.

Tami's gracefulness was charming to watch. Her appreciation for her friends was a nice touch, especially with Yami this episode. I find that cute. Masaru's bunny outfit is pretty amusing.

Now with Tami and Yaya joining the Yosakoi, we need the student council president Machi to join in as well. That Yosakoi festival dance is right around the corner :D.

A lot of friendship bonding, very heartwarming. They all look cute on their casual clothes. Got to admit the Yosakoi was pretty cool, I can't wait to see them perform.

The Shounan Yosakoi Festival was a good chance for them to experience yosaoki. Naru had lots good things to say to encourage everyone, I think she felt embarrassed when she said it though. This episode was really nice, I'm glad that they all enjoyed it.

"can I get your signature please?"

And she gives it. And almost immediately regrets it.

Naru is getting good at these speeches. Even if she gets embarrassed by herself all the time.

The festival in this episode looked pretty cool. Kind of wish they would have shown more of the dancing. Naru’s little speech was nice.
With Yaya and Tami joining and Sally becoming the advisor, the Yosakoi Club is finally official. Wonder when Machi is going to join.

Sorry hanayamata, but this episode went a little overboard with the cuteness and fuzziness...

I understand that this episode was dedicated to Naru and seeing her break out of her shell was good to see. But I just had to skip some of the scenes because the dialogue was a bit too cheesy... Artwork and animation are great as usual, though.

Iunno last episode was way better... prolly why I didn't like this episode as much.

I'm pretty sure Yosakoi itself is pretty like this anime portrays. Because last week I went to see Awa Odori. Awa Odori was portrayed in Golden Time. When I saw it in real life I was really amazed and touched.

I'm getting multiple K-on flashbacks from this anime. A newly formed club with the minimum amount of members, a seemingly perfect sensei who shows her real side in front of the group, and Tami acting exactly like Mugi would of acted.

One can also make a drinking game based on how many times they blushed in each episode lol.

Nice episode and it's nice they finally started their club question is will the training go well and will Yaya chan take things seriously.
The meeting between Sally chan and the shop owner was also very funny makes me wonder if this will lead to more.

Yaya is my avatar, my reflection on the anime as well. She feels detached and like an outsider because she isn't enthralled by Hana, but understands why those around her are. For now she's just doing it for her friends, but unlike Tami, that's not enough to put so much effort and devotion to an activity you haven't even practiced to enjoy. I hope this is build up to her character development next episode, just to see how she'll be persuaded, because Naru's speech isn't enough.

4/5 - cheesy, fuzzy, not much drama, well founded.

Aniki is such a great side character.

I liked how Hana referred to Yaya as a tsundere, since she does act like one in front of Hana. Interesting how Hana teased Yaya with the devil naruko.

Funny how Sari called Aniki a sea monk. She's an interesting advisor.

Naru's speeches are very inspiring, to the point that even she can't handle them.

This series has never failed to entertain me so far. As others have pointed out, this episode was filled with beautiful colors.

I paid a lot of attention to Yaya this ep. Her expressions of reluctance and being a member in "name only" keep being overridden by Hana's exuberance. She keeps trying to back out, but reluctantly enjoys herself.

Tami and Naru have now gone whole-hog into Yasakoi.

Maybe Masaru and Sally are meant for each other?

This festival with girls similar to there age! Can't wait for their turn to do Yosakoi in the next festival!

Yaya is probably my favorite girl in this show. So much blushing this episode. Not that there wasn't always a lot in the previous episodes either, this one just had more.

blushing overload, seriously is hard to pick the best girl out of these four now

Naru saying all those embarrassing lines with a straight face was nice she has a away of moving people with her cuteness lol

really wanna see more Aniki and sensei who knows maybe they'll end up together even if Sally wasn't feeling it right now "Sea monk?"

And the visuals were really nice this time around.

I still can't decide whether Tami or Yaya is best girl. :P

I CAN'T HANDLE THE CHEESE. How Naru can say all that stuff without batting an eye (or dying of embarrassment) is beyond me. Oh wait, she totally knows that what she says is embarrassing. xD That said, woot for Yaya and Tami joining the club. Now for that president... ;D

Funny how they all ended up going to Yaya's place for food, haha.

I have to say, I looooove the colours of everyone's hair in this anime, so shiny and everything.

Yaya the blush machine! I remember someone proposed a drinking game, one shot every time someone blushes. Yaya has a permanent blush on her face, good luck with that XD

The sea monk and Sally-chan sensei looks good together!

I just understood that Sally-sensei and Machi(student council pres) have the same surname? Are they relatives?

UPD: Oh. Just checked the chara profiles. THey are sisters.

K-ON is one of my most hated anime, and yet I really like Hanayamata. I don't really know why. Maybe because its actually funny.

Lol. I'm already shipping aniki and sally sensei. They look cute together. XD

Yaya and Tami are really good characters. Yaya being a cool tsundere, and Tami as the Yamato Nadeshiko type overloaded with feminine charms.

Another wonderful episode full of cuteness, blushing, and tsundereness from Yaya. Funny and heartwarming. I love how this anime always makes me smile and feel warm inside.

Only the school prez is left. Knowing that Sally sensei and her are sisters, this could help her join the group.

The first older Yosakoi teams were ordinary but the younger teams caught my attention and their dress is definitely cute. Too bad they didn't animate their performance. It would have been wonderful.

Hana's super high pitched voice is starting to hurt my fracking ears. Kinda of a big distraction to the anime

Yaya is top tsundere

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

The amount of cute in this show IS TOO DAMN HIGH. I'm slowly getting used to the overdone voices... However in takes forever for me to finish an episode cause i have to keep pausing and coming back. I can only handle so much of it at a time.

On another note, the opening its self is enough reason to watch every week. So charming and catchy.

The beginning was funny & cute with Hana trying to trick and then begging Yaya into signing XD

Tami is definitely Mugi, getting excited over eating out with friends.

Yaya is so weak against cute girls lol.. first she got swayed by Hana and now Tami, for someone uptight and put a guard against strangers she sure caved in easily. In the end though they were all charmed by Naru.

Great episode, the dance at the end was short but smoothly animated. Umibozu-aniki (reminds me of LoveCom) was cute with rabbit costume.

Ok I actually cried at the end of this episode when the song came on because it was too cute. This is definitely my AOTS better than even Zankyou no Terror.

Naru was looking extra cute this episode omg <3
And Hana is generally adorable anyway so yeah :3

Sally sensei is perfect I'm seriously in love with her :3

All the character are perfect, likeable. The music and animation are amazing. Especially the animation so bright and vibrant omg!

Also the yosakoi dance looked beautiful.

WHY does this anime have 7.20 score wtf are there really so many moe haters on MAL it's annoying cause if people rate something this good so low then how am I meant to find the really good series that have already aired.

I'm starting to understand more why some people completely ignore MAL scores when choosing an anime. It's just that I have no time to waste on anime that are bad and it's often best to look at stats. But now I'll have to factor in moe haters and preference for mindless action over cute SoL :/

Man, Naru sure gets on a role with those speeches! She leaves everyone in stunned silence for a few moments before she realizes what she's been doing.

The Prince and the Princess got some nice bonding time.

Sally-chan-sensei x Aniki. She might not realize it yet, but I saw those blushes Aniki!

I suspect that Yaya may also be in the personally unfamiliar position of being the follower rather than the leader. She's always been the one to lead Naru and to a lesser extent her "fans", but now she's in the position of being led and she feels reluctant. At least I get that impression.
