The Day in the Light Music Club (Aru Hi no Keionbu)
(Performed by all seiyuu)
“Day in the Light Music Club” episode involved talk about the group breaking up due to their differences in musicianship after reading about how another band did the same, which naturally drew some wary reactions from everyone except Yui who suggested it. Sawa-chan on the other hand liked the prospect of Yui finally coming over to “her side” of the music world and how she might have two bands to go to for tea parties. After Yui added how she’d be with Azusa forever and become “Old Age Tea Time” (Rougo Tea Time) together, the idea of renaming their band came up when Ui asked where “Ho-kago Tea Time” came from.
As a name Sawa-chan gave them because they couldn’t decide on one themselves, Yui figured something more upscale would help their image, which a vote where Mugi comes in as the unexpected tiebreaker led to some good laughs. This isn’t the first time Mugi joined in on one of Yui and Ritsu’s “interesting” propositions, but the names thrown out were even better. On top of Yui’s “The All-America” (Za Zenbei) and “Explosive Laughter” (Daibakushou) ones, Mugi suggesting the rice angle with “Rice Riots” (Kome Soudou) proved to be good stuff. If it were up to Mio, it’d be “Chocolate Melody” though, which was cute because it was just what I’d expect from her, but hilarious when Yui put the “Rice Chocolate” spin on it, much to Ritsu’s frustration. Naturally, Sawa-chan has the best suggestions, throwing out “After A Beating Bloody Time” (Oudago Bloody Time). That was easily one of the funniest ones next to “Za Zenbei” with the way Yui suggested it. Unsurprisingly, nothing changed when talk about a theme for them involved tea, snacks, and fluffiness. Things end off with the start of the Light Music Club’s live performance getting announced and everyone rushing off to give us just that.
