K-ON! Episode 13 [Extra]
When Winter comes, everyone doesn’t feel like doing anything at all – except for Yui, who energetically invites everyone around to her house to have 鍋（なべ） or hot pot. Which is actually really nice to have on a cold wintery day, unless you for whatever reason end up making one of Yui’s stupid suggestions.
In the end, this “bonus episode” didn’t really have a lot in it. It was basically a summary of the girls’ day and the various things they ended up doing. It is very much one of those everyday life episodes that ended up not being very exciting.
Mugi has a job at a McDonalds like restaurant; Ritsu gets moody and fusses over a love letter that actually turns out to be lyrics left by Mio; Mio takes a trip out to the ocean to try to come up with new lyrics; Yui goes shopping with Ui; and Azu-nyan is left to babysit that weird and ugly looking person’s cute little neko.
CUE, AZU-NYAN #2!!
Although a bit bland, I thought this episode was a good end to K-ON!. It was a complete change of pace and certainly wasn’t the worst episode in the series. KyoAni were able to add a little extra to the very short manga chapter that was dedicated to this Winter stuff.
Am I still happy that it’s ended? I’ve been following K-ON! since it first started, week in, week out. My excitement and expectations for the show slowly dropped over the weeks, but it still has it’s strengths in mainly it’s music. Sure, it fell to the repetitive plot, unnecessary over-moe, random stupid and childish moment… and stuff (too lazy to think up of more), it still had its moments.
And now, for some random screenshots and comments from the rest of the episode:
