Sawa-chan is…


.. the female version of Negishi. For reals, lolz.






Oh man, she was pretty fucking epic in the manga already and KyoAni has to up the ante even higher. The whole “destroying evidence” and flashback to the past thing was extremely hilarious. As if the teeth guitar wasn’t enough, ahahahaha.


Plus, she makes a fine bokke pair with Yui too, ROFL.


Mugi’s yuri delusions are being put out full front so early already. It is kinda scary to see her in that ‘mode’ though.


And finally, prerequisite Mio shot of the episode. Headphones are fine too!

    My respect for Sawa-chan increased 10-fold after watching this episode. KyoAni did quite a great job in this aspect I feel bad for Yui’s guitar though. LOL @ Band-aid on it during Sawa-chan’s flashback~ :D

    Sawa-chan is officialy my favorite character in K-ON.

    Sawako Sensei is the best character easily. Hands down she demolishes all other characters.

    The scene where she pairs with Yui is awesome.

    This show just got a huge boost.

    Sawa was awesome! However, I still put it like this:

    Mio => Sawa => Mugi > Yui = Ritsu

    The thing about Sawa that I have a bit of a problem is the glasses. I have a bit of an issue with girls with glasses because it reminds me of something unpleasant but other than that, she’s cool.

    About Mugi being a lesbian, personally I don’t feel that at all yet. It seems like everyone think so.

    I didn’t realize it was Asami Sanada voicing Sawako until she freaked out about the picture album. Only then did I realize she sounded like Kanako from Maria+Holic. Damn, she’s a fun seiyuu to listen to. Looks like they gave her another crazy character to voice.

    @Ipsod NICE! I didn’t catch that either.

    This show sold me as an ensemble act, but the Yuri angle for Mugi (previously tied as my favorite character with Yui) + Sawa-sensei has proved to me that this show will only get better.

    I am ready to rawk out sooooo hard at the school festival.

    Ep5 is the best show of K-ON! so far~ ^o^b

    Sawa + Yui = LOL~ XD
    So Mugi finally reveal her inner trait hohoho… It’s the best part of her ^^
    I think it’s not “fairly” fair if Mio takes all the credit.. but headphone also fine too, it makes her looks “Cute”, not “Moe” all the time… I luv this part~ ^_^v
    What ’bout Ritsu? Flows with everything as always~ but that makes the show lively, good job 4 her ^_^b

    So my meter is:
    Yui = Mio = Mugi = Sawa >= Ritsu

    *sry 4 my bad eng~

    The first photo of Sawa’s wild side reminds me a lot of Revy from Black Lagoon. The usual Revy face.

    ah, n/m, correction: $270…..still…that’s pretty high class stuff. I wonder if Mugi bought them for her, lol.

    I don’t see why you need sawa-chan. Yui’s moe supply could feed all the poor children in Africa.

    I figure that Mugi may not personally be attracted to other girls, but she just likes to fantasize about others in that way.

    Damm I love it when a band ‘gets it all together’ and what a ‘Super-Sensei’ to show them the way. Waiting for episode 6 now!!! Love Mio too btw. My ‘breakout hit for ’09 for sure. Thanks, bye!

    I´d wanted to see this kind of thing in the second ep. Finally we´re starting to get a hold of music. Instead of yet another Lucky Star music club option.

    So I´m a bit disappointed so far. But it´ll be better from now on I hope.

    And going all the way is the only way :p

    AKG K701s… me thinks the animators have good taste….. and mio has highly sensitive ears
    bloody expensive too…
    but she has to have a killer amp to match up….
    my phillips sh2000 are suffering without a good amp….. plugged in to the pc….

    The $400 price tag is only if you’re foolish enough to get them for the MSRP. For example, Amazon has them for $270 –

    Still, that’s an insane pair of headphones…I thought my Alessandro series 2’s were good.

    Audio quality is a very subjective affair. You never know until you listened with them :)
