K-ON!! Goes Home!

by 04:42

Like most high school life scenes, the annual field trip to various cultural parts of Japan, which most Japanese have never been to unless for a good reason, has begun.

So K-ON!! goes home to Kyoto, where the production company, Kyoto Animation is based.
Ironically, KyoAni is located on the outskirts of Kyoto, which is Uji, but still within the Kyoto Prefecture.

As expected of a company which is based in Kyoto, one must live up to the expectations of great artworks and backdrops of various Kyoto scenes, which are quite impressive throughout the episode. The last time they did something like this was Lucky Star ^^

Like all field trips. we start off any with packing up of necessary belongings;

I thought it was Yui packing up, until I heard her voice, which sounded and looked like Ritsu (hairstyle)? Huh?

But twas Yui again? Eh?

Turns out to be Ui. Sisters are scary....

Photo op time, while Yui checks her bangs...

...with the teacher-in-denial, Sawa-chan-sensei?

 Mushroom Snacks! Those things taste awesome! ^^;

Adding more "slice-of-life" moments that make people go, "That happens to me too!"

The Many faces of Ritsu; #1, and forgive the TBS lines >_>

Mio can't handle both Yui AND Ritsu 

A power nap for the one who snacked all the way on the Shinkansen. 

Already in Kyoto and all Yui can think about is food.

The Rokuon-ji or Kinkaku-ji, acoording to Mugi

The refined Mugi informs how matcha should be drunk. 

Kitano Tenman-gu, supposedly worships a certain scholar deity...

...which give hope to many students who wish for his blessings in exams or just to rub off some desperately needed IQ. 

While Sawa-chan buys a marriage charm, the girls run to pull the bells...

...and rushs out, passing Sawa-chan who secretly bought the charm...

...to be further pestered by the girls as they forgot to give some offerings.

Not good with kanji (clockwise from top) but the top says "Budokan", followed by familiar names like Tainaka Ritsu, Hirasawa Yui on the "Gitah", Akiyama Mio and Kotobuki Mugi far left

Mugi making battle preparations... 

Apparently, snacking before dinner is not advised or practiced, especially when a special dinner await you.

And we have an Onsen Scene! Yay Mio! xD

Something for DFC lovers. With nothing to censor out, steam filters are kept to a bare minimum. ^^

Gyūnyū wa bakuhatsu~! 

Another interesting face by Ritsu. 

Onto the pillow fight! Mugi warms up...

Aims...

...and FIRE~!

Mugi's first blood leads the attack with 1-0...

...and scores a DOUBLE KILL for 2-0

Ritsu retaliates after losing 3-0...

And accidentally strikes Roshan...

...who pwns all of them.

But the night is still young. More of Mugi 's moe parts are showing up here and there.

Ritsu notices a shop selling various instruments...

...which displeases Mio as being distracted...

...until someone mentions lefty-bass guitar are sold here too. ^^. So cute!
The girls then head to the top of a hill...

...to feed some cousins of the human species.

When you have too much money, you'd worry why. But not them...

Ritsu tries at some Kyo-kotoba....

...and gets the message across...

...to get directions to the nearest station...

...but ends up lost again.

Until Nodoka finds them...

...much to the delight of Ritsu...

...who happens to be lost as well

Now, were lost but not alone =)

Ritsu puts on a game face...

While Mio tries to keep her straight face...

...while keeping away from the scary face...

...only to have a devil's face appear. 

Sensei no chikara!

Kuro Sawa has awoken to make many faces...

Err... Kokushi? 

Ends with a backdrop of Mt. Fuji.

Preview
The juniors venture into the senior's classrooms...

...who have stayed behind at school.
