Merry Christmas to all and all a good, wait a minute, it's the middle of May. Why am I writing about Christmas in May? Well, episode 7 of K-On! is the obligatory Christmas episode that comes standard while most slice-of-life anime series.
The episode starts with Ui reminiscing about a particular Christmas when she was very young. During that Chrismas, Ui wanted snow to be her present from Santa. Yui being the nice older sister that she is, she rips open a pillow and throws the stuffing all over the front of their home to give her younger sister that white Christmas she wanted. In present time, Yui and Ui are headed to school and they both notice that they need new winter apparel(Yui needs a new pair of gloves and Ui needs a new scarf).
let me step aside in this review for a minute. I find Yui and Ui relationship interesting because the role reversal. In most anime, the older sister is the responsible one that does all of the house work and the younger sister is the airhead that can't do anything right. If anyone who does not know a thing about K-On! and saw the image below, they would think that Ui is the older sister and Yui is the younger one.
I liked this episode because it had some really funny moments that got me by surprise. I also liked that this episode also developed Ui's character and showed us the kind of close relationship that Yui and Ui have. So, what did you think of this episode?
