Wow... what the hell happened to this show between this week and last? Yui became even more retarded. I refuse to believe there is any person of average intelligence who uses a GIBSON LES PAUL as a dress-up doll!

Oh, and DRAMA. Give me a freakin' break. There's nothing organic about this episode. It's contrived to the fullest amount. BAD KYOANI! BAD!

I don't know why people are hating so much on this ep. I feel it was a nice change of pace, and it didn't last too long so its not like we're all suffering much anyway. Plus the scene with Mio and Ritsu was touching, and the voice acting blew me away! Satou Satomi's "okote nai?" and Hikasa Yoko's "nai yo, atarimai daro" were just plain pretty. So I say, good ep, although I agree I wouldn't want this every week.

so they finally have a band name, the afterschool teatime, or something like that, either way they now have a name and set up for they're next performance, as long as they don't get sick
the only way to stop a gamer from playing is either: beat them, or wait until they get bored (though 2% percent suffer seizures

Now how did I let this slip me by? Really, Krauser-sensei? That's the best you can do? The expected "K-ON!" in English letters would have been less retarded than the band name you came up with!

Looking forward for the next episode :D

I really liked that scene, as I don't remember seeing it in the manga, only it being mentioned.

Again, true to the manga. And it fits their club better than 'light music' does, cos really, compare how much they eat afternoon tea to how much they practice together and tell me that 'Afternoon Tea Time' isn't better suited to them.

I liked how this episode wasn't that pumped with moe, still, I think it wasn't good at all. There's just no structure in this show... 2 episodes left to go. Hopefully KyoAni will throw something more worthwhile in our faces, next time.

Ermm, I don't think it was supposed to offend you, it's just very short answer for you question. Longer version: when you see same shit happening over and over again every few series it's getting annoying and reaaaaly old.

If Splitter had said that, then I wouldn't have retaliated. But "watch more anime" is a little rude, don't you think? Anyway, it doesn't even matter, this thread is about K-ON! so let's just keep it that way.

the series is pretty much over, and they could have done something a little more interesting with this episode but they made it about a crisis, that didn't really seem like a crisis, or rather, there wasn't really a defined crisis. and it was all pretty much resolved without any problems, the nice thing here was the band naming, afternoon teatime. :-)

For some reason I loved Ritsu getting jealous over the fact Mio's getting on with Nodoka.

Sawa~chan was especially priceless in this episode.

Yui's got another cold again >_<

This'll be all I say on the matter. The comment was not made to insult you but rather comment on how you have to nitpick at mediocre moments to validate that this wasn't a terrible episode, when it was a terrible episode, especially the parts you are defending. Rather than argue why these scenes were generic and boring, I simply said "watch more anime" because there is a vast deal of slice-of-life moe comedy out there that handle drama FAR more effectively than this travesty of a "dramatic" episode. It's not personal though. I'm an equal-opportunity critic.

What is with everyone trying to force their opinions on others?

You may not like those scenes, but what's wrong with him saying he does?

And so what if other series handle drama better, he's rating this show on it's own merits, not comparing it to another show.

Because I think the show has relatively little on its own merits. I get how someone who has seen very little anime would probably think the world of this show...same if this is their first slice of life. But the fact is that reused jokes get old, and if much of the content is stale, then on the show's merits...it is a stale repackaging of material.

I don't think anyone's trying to force their opinions on anyone. They're just putting the show in perspective.

Well, it finally deviated from the manga's story... which turned out to make it even more cliche than usual. Even with all that being said it was still a cute episode and how can you not like those characters?

Nah, jk. It was actually nice seeing that change in atmosphere and I'm sure MioxRitsu fans appreciate this ep hehe. Anyways, "Afterschool Teatime"? What a name. XD

Yui is as cute as ever~~ <3

Perfect band name - I was thinking of something similar like SnackGrrls or something like that.

If this is Episode 11 of a 13 episode series, how can the next episode be the last one? Is the MAL db corrupted or do our Mods know something we don't?

Perhaps episode 13 will be an extra, or the it will be the second part to the finale.

Anyhow, really looking forward to next episode! (I'm a strange yet huge fan of main characters getting colds/fevers; this episode was awesome too!)

Good episode about girl's friendship. Sawako got some screentime with her heavy metal past, that was hilarious. As it seems, last episode next time ;_;

I like this episode :P Mainly just liked the whole friendship thing going on between Mio and Ritsu...my fav scene would probably be the bedroom scene. It was just so....normal!! You know, for a girl who isn't watching this anime for fanboyomgmoe reasons...that scene was pretty enjoyable.

Yui actually annoyed me a bit this time around, how can you ignore the condition of the guitar?! Poor guitar...or should I say Giita? XD

I liked the band name - makes sense but still cute :P

And the whole deal with the last episode, I didn't even notice until I updated my list and was just presented with a: "Huuh? Didn't it say 'last episode' in the preview? HUUUH? I'm so confused." No rage on my part XD

Personally, I don't really care whether or not it loses an episode, I doubt one episode is going to make much of a difference. To me, K-ON is just an anime to watch while you're relaxing or just to past the time, nothing serious but still somewhat entertaining :P.

But I must say...now that we're near the end of the series: I can't tell if I'm glad to have picked up this series. I think I'm a bit disappointed since I didn't expect this much "moe" stuff going on. I think if I knew about it in advance I wouldn't have picked it up. Right now I'm enjoying Hatsukoi Limited much more than K-ON which is funny since I expected the other way around XD

Looks like KyoAni put in some original material, (the crisis with Mio and Ritsu's friendship wasn't in the manga), nevertheless, I enjoyed it. By the way, they should have listened to Yui about the Band name.

It was a good episode, imo.
I'm not usually one for drama like that, but they did a good job with it. They managed to add just the right amount of hilarity while still letting the drama flow nicely together. I enjoyed seeing Mio and Ritsu acting like how real best friends would. Ah, the Mio x Ritsu potential of that episode was so nice <3

I, for one, liked the drama. Seemed a bit odd at first, but the way they handled it was very good. A nice break from the moeblob.
Yui was adorable in this episode, and so was Ritsu. I enjoyed this episode.

I was a little skeptic around halfway through the episode but they managed to end it nicely. Finally something that wasn't a complete rehash of an early episode.

This episode had the closest thing to progression and character development, which is why everyone hates it.

However, this was my favorite episode so far, and I've hated most everything so far.

As for why I would still be watching at this point if I hated the previous 10 episodes... well, exercise in frustration. Also watching with friends.
