K-ON! Ep.3

Third episode. Still no OP. Still no music. (- -__|||)

Midterm exams have come around and, as you know, Yui is an airheaded dunce. This is a problem because students who fail the exams are not allowed to participate in extracurricular activities. This and the fact that the Light Music Club has the bare minimum of members as it is means that Yui's academic performance is everyone's problem.

We get a whole episode of Yui procrastinating and the entire club holding an all-night cram session for her.

Yui passes, of course, and we've just seen an episode devoted to characterizing our protagonists with no real plot development. In the end Yui even forgets all the chords she learned so we are no closer to a show about a band than we started.
