1 Sentence Summary: “Yui Fails School… almost”. Episode 3 was less about music, more about the Yui’s study habits and how it’s a disaster waiting to happen. Once again, it’s scary how I’m able to pinpoint an aspect of my personality in one of these 4 girls (except that I’m a guy). This time it’s procrastination aspect.
Yui suffered the fate of being the clumsy/ditsy character of the show. As such, while she ends up on the figure racks of happy moe fans, a lot of critical anime viewers would tend to target her as why the show is bad. This episode does a great job to reminding the viewer that a character like Yui can very much exist in real life.
I mean yeah, let’s admit it, MOST of us are procrastinators… some just take it to another level (no, I’m NOT ignoring homework to do this blog post *looks shifty*). I know for a fact that if I discover something more interesting the studying, then I’ll probably end up stop studying to do whatever was interesting (yeah a lot of people are like that). Practicing the guitar instead of studying was the same exactly reason why my parents didn’t buy me a guitar until AFTER the finals were done in high school. Seeing it occur here brought back some memories.
Ritsu, though, still holds the top characters spot. What did she do this week that reminded me of me? Crying to a friend the night before a test asking for help, being easily distracted at group study sessions, and always end up being the “hopeless” one in my group of friends. … wait, I’m in trouble, aren’t I… T_T
