Episode 3

And the club is together, but the real battle begins as Hozuki is still closing herself to her clubmates all while there’s a teacher determined to shut them down. They have quite the uphill battle ahead seeing how much of a bad rep they have been getting all while the members is too much of a ragtag feel.

Damn, I love an Ice Queen like Hozuki ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

Reisengunn sounded pretty cool, but it was sadly cut short :/

Sakura, Sakura is pretty famous (youtube it) and I enjoyed playing it on the piano; the koto would definitely give it a more authentic sound, though I don't fancy learning that mysterious koto-specific music notation!

Hoping to hear more of their practices soon.

I kind of want some more music, but this was still an enjoyable episode. I feel like glasses senpai should probably tell Hozuki what Kudou's story is. Although I guess it wouldn't be his place to do that. Well whatever, she'll probably find out some day.

This might be a spoiler to some , it has the manga segment in japanese but if you want to hear the Ryuuseigun koto piece played by 5 male and the lead by a female or wait until that episode


Excellent adaptation

Anyway "Sakura Sakura" is a traditional Japanese Folk song dating back in the Edo era , here is the full koto rendition of the song https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=ak51lblceow I am not Japanese but I have heard this song since was a kid.

lyrics with english translation
Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,
Across the spring sky,
As far as the eye can see.
Is it mist, or clouds?
Fragrant in the air.
Come now, come now,
Let's go and see them!
Another koto version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdtp_yqizqe&list=rdak51lblceow&index=5

Episode 4

These boys have quite an uphill climb as they are not on the same page, all while their fingers are not tough enough to play their best with the koto. But Chika took the lead there as he puts the lessons learned from his grandfather to good use, and everybody is starting to get in sync. Great to see everybody coming together seeing that they only have a month to become a top-notch koto troupe to keep the club going.

Yesssssssss, can see the softer side of Hozuki coming through already, and she knows Kudou's past now :3

Good to have some more music in this episode, though still short, and sometimes disappointingly skipped for "dramatic" effect.
Despite my years of piano practice, I think I still have terrible rhythm, and would find it as challenging as those guys to stay in sync. I guess as Jennie says, I'm going solo~

Seems like the performance is next week, so there better be some decent focused music screentime.

You know when it comes to Saturday, I thought the shows that I would be most excited to watch would either be Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai or Kimetsu no Yaiba, but to be honest. It's this show that I mostly look forward to, I'm really enjoying it. I'm glad Hozuki is opening up with her fellow club mates and now she knows of Kudou's past. Looking forward to the performance next week and the end segment of Hozuki dead eyes at the end kind of scared me lol.

Episode 5

It's go-time for the koto club, and these boys sure played with a chip on their shoulder. But just as the performance was going well, one of the boys went out of sync. It's a good thing they have Hozuki to pick up the slack as her divine play overpowered the boys and gave them what the boys needed to get back in sync. Beautiful episode that was with the performance and telling the story of all the struggles those boys went through in live during the performance. It wasn't perfect, but all that matters is that the audience loved it and it goes to show how much everybody has become pals.

A crying Hozuki =

I enjoyed that music, and Chika's delicate bit too, though not sure if I'd have preferred more focus on the music playing. The montages does help to summarise what they've been through so far.
I suppose Chika's arc if you will, has concluded. Perhaps a focus on Hozuki is next.

They would cliffhanger there, bastards.

Dang that gave me such good sympathetic nervous excitement. Haven't felt my heart race like that in a long time. The flashbacks mid song were a bit too distracting though.

Why doesn't the vice principal know about his grandfather and what really happened? I think the principal knows based on previous episodes.

That was pretty great.



Maybe not so many flash backs during the performance, but overall this was a great episode and I suppose the end of Kudou's arc. How could you not love all these members. Also I really liked how glasses senpai is growing some back bone. Looking forward to the new member next week and see what she'll add to the club.
