so they finally got the guitar, btw how much exactly is 80,000 yen? what 80$ u.s.? anyways they also learned an important lesson, turn the volume down before unplugging! also i really like the ED to this, its kind of catchy i guess you could say

It's not exact but you can see 100 yen = around 1$ (+ or - like 25%)

A guitar of 250 000 yen would cost around 2 500$ who is a decent price imo for a good quality guitar. They managed to get it for around 500$ lol, I like discount like that.

This episode was lol and yeah Mio is great.

250 000 yen guitar is 1 750 dollars.
It ended up going to 50 000 yen, so the guitar costed something like 350 dollars.

And yeah, a Les Paul being 'cute' is a bit weird, but since it's coming out of a girl I can't say it's unusual.

As a guitarist I kind of raged this episode.
I noticed the Fender Les Paul as well....moh
K-ON! will only contribute more to the growing sales of Fender, Gibson, Marshall, Yamaha, etc.

Not saying I don't like the show. I absolutely love it. My guilty pleasure this season.

If my head could blow up from moe overload, like Mio's did, I'd be in real trouble right now.

Loved, loved this episode.

I liked this episode more than the last one. It was interesting to see the girls get a job. I loved seeing them counting the clouds and replying through pressing the button. Since things like that happen very often when having a job such as that.

I enjoyed this episode soo much.Mio is sooo moe with all her shyness.She kinda reminds me of myself when i get shy and imagining what will happen xD.I also love the part when her head explodes because of imagining too much~Damn cute >_< Bass players always wins the show.

The episode was great and I'm starting to like Tsugumi <3 Lmao at the bargaining scene when the counter guy was looking at her eye brows and got shocked because she's the daughter of their company's owner or something .It made me LOL xD I hope i have a friend who could bargain just like Tsugumi.

Yui playing air guitar was Lmao <3 I'm looking forward to how she improves playing her guitar.

Anways,This episode is fun to watch and ii seriously enjoyed listening to the OP and the ED.

Looking forward to the next episode.

Love is filled with mystery

It surprised me that she was the lead in the ending credits the first time I saw it, cause from what I saw of her in the first episode, she didn't seem the centre of attention type.

But I adore Tsugumi even more now. She's the gentle behind the scenes kind of character which I find really interesting, but is still up for doing anything. I also found Yui's attention span dangerously cute.

Another great episode; I am enjoying this moefest :)

Yui is awesome. I like how her younger sister, Ui, knows more about life than she does. It sort of reminds me of Tenma and Yakumo from School Rumble.

Thanks, person who gave me this on another site a long time ago, lol.

I didn't know what to do with the Les Paul being a fender.It through me off and I had to rewatch it just to make sure my eyes were playing a trick on me.

Besides that I loved the episode :)

Great ep, again.. KyoAni rocks too hard. I noticed something in between.. Mio said she was very shy and that's why she preferres bass over guitar, but in the ED she's kinda in the center of attention. Maybe something that develops in the future regarding more Mio moe-ness? ^^ Can't wait till the next ep ;D

I swear if I see the word "moe" again, my head will probably explode a million times like mio :(

I want to know if there are any GIRLS out there like me who just enjoy this anime for non-moe reasons. I'm not denying the fact that each character is cute in their own way. But seriously this word "moe" is started to annoy me :(

Oh a lighter note, this episode was just as great (if not better) than the first epi!! I really love the friendship growing between the four :D

Mio is absolutely >ADORABLE< and yui was just funny with her obsessing over her guitar without practicing, I laughed a bit when her sister found her sleeping with it XD

The clicker scenes are absolutely hilarious especially when they started to click other things. I used to work with clickers, those are fun...but yes, overtime it gets tiring XD. And let's not forget Ritsu's random drumming...on clickers XD hahahaha~

hmm i think this show is really average and i can tell its already going to be EXTREMELY overated by the fans (is to be expected with kyoto animation series -_-) i just don't see why people love them as much as they do. but don't get me wrong the series is fun and entertaining just not anything special or unique really. i also really hate yui shes just stupid and lame. just cause shes moe doesen't make her awesome. i do like the other 3 quite a bit though. i guess i will watch this too the end for fun.

But I watch this show because it was about music, and I'm a music geek...

You know... I've written way too many posts on refuting people's views such as yours... I don't feel like writing them as in depths anymore. Condensed: Why do you care that people have different tastes? I love everything that I've seen by KyoAni. I may look at your list and say all your favorite anime are totally overrated. What would that solve?

Welcome to my world and I'm a guy going through this. All I see if moe. As if that is what makes a show great. But hey if that's what suits your tastes then I guess by all means indulge it

This show reminds me of Beck for whatever odd reason, albeit Moe-fied.

Are any musicians watching this show and finding some scenes to be absolutely adorable?
The scene where Yui was buying her guitar was beyond cute. But I can't believe Yui bought a Les Paul for her first guitar. It took me nearly 5 years until I bought a half decent guitar. I don't think Yui realizes how blessed she is being able to play a Les Paul as her first.

As a side note. Mio is the fucking cutest bassist I've ever seen...

*note* That ending bit where Yui unplugged her guitar from the amp with the cord still in it is SO true it actually hurt a bit inside seeing that happen to someone else.

If only it means "cute" then I wouldn't be bothered by this. I get a feeling that some people have no idea what this term means and just uses it cuz other people are using it.

From what I know, I thought "moe" was something derogative. A obsessive compulsive fetish. A perverted fetish. Odd fetishes that's related to really cutesy characters to the point it's pedo-ish.

I'm glad there ARE people out there who watches this anime for non-moe reasons :D!!

Mmm. I guess I really will have to detach myself from reality to fully enjoy this. All four of them are incredibly unrealistic. Good for sigs and avatars, not for the favorites list.

BTW - CoalGuys, your subs suck ass.


If I can remember correctly, CoalGuys criticized Chihiro's work on their K-ON PV. So what group do you prefer?
They're both god awful. I guess CoalGuys since I tolerate their subtitles, but will never download an episode done by Chihiro. The more bullshit they pull, the more annoyed I get, though... (Penises in ef melodies OP, "coal guys only" in Toradora, drama llama with the Shittiest Group Ever, and now letting their quality drop even more just so they can release quickly)

I guess all the people saying the guitar ended up costing $350 aren't American?

Holy, I'm finally glad people finally started reacting to the over-use of 'moe'. Normally I wouldn't mind, but hell, moe doesn't mean 'cute'.

Been tired of seeing people use 'moe' as if it meant 'cute', so 'kawaii'.

It's pretty much as you originally thought; it's a word that indicates a fetish to the word or situation it's associated with.
So if you see Mio overthinking so much, and her head explodes, and you go "omg so moe", it means "oh god I'm getting excited".

Moe has been meaning that ever since it's been used by otaku; the meaning of 'cute' (in a non-secual way) when moe is used is because of misunderstandings.

I didn't really know how I should state all this, especially since people have been using it so wrongly in K-On! topics for over a week now, but I'm glad robbydesu/japanme32 started this discussion, and panda_general for bringing the question up.

exactly. The word ”萌え” had been overused so much that it degrades now to mean anything that is "lolicon, cute, attractive, ('pedophilic' meaning as well)".
