Episode 16 seems to be one where Azusa gets to spend a little alone time with each of the members. In a way, it’s an episode where we watch cute girls do cute stuff rather then any actual plot to this episode. However, it’s also fits very well, as Azusa, not being a senior, is an outsider among the girls, and this episode allows her to get closer with each of them.
When Mugi spends time with Azusa, we learn that Mugi has been playing the piano for a long time, and that she still practices daily. That is dedication! She also apparently sneaks food, but then who doesn’t?
Mio and Azusa was pretty boring, with some real discussion about the light music club. I mean, it’s good to have some people who actually focus on the club and all, but it’s not interesting to watch to them talk about it. I felt bad for Azusa, and the fact that she ended up not getting to practice at all that day though.
They instead go to Ristu’s house. The brother’s response to the girl just showing up on the doorstep was pretty funny. Much to my surprise, Ritsu can cook! I was not expecting that. This ended up being the Ritsu segment of the show. I really like this development of her character. I didn’t like Ritsu much is season one, but my opinion is changing over these past few episodes.
Last but not least were Yui and Azusa, and those she always have the best dynamics. They clean the tank, look was Mugi’s song, and then Yui helps Azusa with her identity crisis in a very simple way out of left field sort of way.
After watching this episode, I’m tempting to take stickers to college to cover the dorm room with…oh Yui, you’re a bad influence. Overall, I like this episode more then I usually like the cute girls doing cute stuff episodes. It took awhile to watch it though as I didn’t find it that compelling, although very cute.
