K-ON!! Episode 2 review

Yui is sleeping in the classroom. Others try to wake her saying they’ve got cake for her. Yui opens her eyes, checks the scene and finds no cake and tells them they are liars. Then, she continues to dream about “keionbuta”, mentioned in previous episode.

It’s time to do a major cleaning as the storage room of Keionbu’s clubroom is flooded with useless stuff, which has accumulated there over many years.

Mio does her hair up in a pretty ponytail. I’m not any big fan of this specific hair-style, but I admit it suits her well. Though I still prefer her usual hair-style.

They find a case and there’s a guitar inside. They learn it is one of Sawa-chan’s guitars, but she tells them to sell it and use the money for club funding.

On their way to the music shop, Mio gets a leaflet announcing a sale at a home center. They fancy a shelf, which they could place in the storage room to help them organize the stuff there. They decide to drop by the shop, and not surprisingly, Mugi says it’s her first time she’s been in this kind of shop.

Yui plays around with an electric screwdriver and “shoots Mio and Azusa dead”.

Ritsu doesn’t fall behind. Mio, fight back with your Moe Moe Kyun Beam ^^

Azusa stares at a strange looking turtle in an aquarium and Yui joins her.

Finally, they reached the music shop and handed over the guitar to the clerk. A few moments later, he tells them they can get 500,000 yen for it (It turns out to be a very valuable old guitar, furthermore in a very good condition). Everyone’s expression on hearing it doesn’t need any comments. Only Mugi isn’t stupefied at all and happily accepts the money. As expected of a girl from a well-to-do family.

Azusa ponders whether it’s fine to keep the money or not. Her thinking is, however, interrupted by a wad of money right in front of her eyes.

K-ON!! Episode 2 review

Everybody, except for Mugi, is absorbed in evil fantasies about what they can buy if they split the money, each of them getting 100,000 yen. Mugi seems to be the one whose mind is not corrupted by money. However, I think it’s her who is the most depraved one here, as for her it’s just some small money.

K-ON!! Episode 2 review

Next day in the clubroom, Sawa-chan asks them how much they received in exchange for the guitar. Ricchan, flustered, tells her it was worth 10,000 yen. Quite a difference from the truth. Sawa-chan further asks for a receipt in order to have the money stored into the club funds.

Ricchan, trying to ward off the approaching catastrophe, puts the receipt in her mouth. She doesn’t chew fast enough, though…

…and Sawa-(chan?)  orders Ritsu to spit it out and give it to her.

Everyone is groveling before the great boss, apologizing for trying to deceive her.

K-ON!! Episode 2 review

Sawa-chan confiscates the money, but she hears of Yui and fulfills her utmost desire: to be slapped with a wad of bills.

K-ON!! Episode 2 review

Sawa-chan says she will buy them one thing with that money so they should discuss it and make up their mind about what they want. It’s hard for them to choose something as it’s almost impossible to pick a musical thing that everyone could use. In the end, Yui, finding Azusa feeling alone without any new underclassman joining the club, comes up with the idea to buy one. The turtle they saw at the home center thus becomes their new club member.
