K-ON!! Episode 12

June 22, 2010

It’s the summer break as we hit episode twelve of the series, and despite Sawako’s reminder as homeroom teacher that studying and doing some thing productive are requirements of this time, Yui’s mind is clearly elsewhere…. with thoughts of another training camp more specifically. But where to hold it this time? The beach? The mountains? Or, how about at Summer Fest, a yearly rock concert? With Sawako providing the tickets, that’s that settled.From here on in, it seems as though poor old Azusa is liable to be the only voice of sanity when placed between a hungover Sawako, travel sick Yui and Yakisoba obsessed Mugi – Even the normally sensible Mio appears to have lost her mind somewhat amidst the promise of so much live music. Still, once at the event itself “normal” service is resumed (at least as normal as you can get with this bunch), be it an obsession with food or Yui’s other “special” qualities.

There isn’t a huge amount to say about this episode really – It wasn’t as laugh out loud funny as other recent instalments and it was a pretty strong example of an episode of this franchise where “stuff just happens”. Then again, on a hot day with the aforementioned Glastonbury on the horizon and the sun shining into the room this episode just felt very, very “right”, which it made it pretty enjoyable in its own way, even if that saccharine ending was ever-so slightly cringe-worthy. It does make me wish I was at some kind of festival myself this summer though, notwithstanding the festival of football currently being served up to us every day.
