“Where there’s a Konatsu, there’s a way..”

(Sawa shows how she drinks from a milk carton)

Studio: P.A.Works

Genre: School, Music, Slice of Life, Age: All ages

Released: July 1 2012 – onwards

Continuing on from the last episode, the group meet in the city center, but Sawa Okita drags the girls to her house to talk over the new choir plans.

Warning this may contain spoilers!




After the girls have ironed out how they will get new members, Konatsu hands in the members list to the Principal.

He is reluctant to say yes, but seeing Wakana Sakai’s name on the list, he lets them form a new, alternative, choir.

(Talk to the hand cause the face ain’t– oh wait, you have Sakai. Okay..)

Konatsu picks a song called “Melody of the Heart” for the new choir to play at the recital. Their reluctantly given the go-ahead by the mean teacher.

(Everyone except Konastu watches the match of the century.)

This is where Tari Tari thankfully skips ahead the days and weeks of practice. Instead, it’s condensed into one short montage.

Now, everyone is getting ready to get on the bus to the recital… but the Principal isn’t there to supervise them! And neither is their back-up supervisor, the pregnant teacher!

(Konatsu’s brother needs to nip to the boys room..)

Sawa hunts down the pregnant teacher, while Konatsu hunts down the Principal. The group meanwhile head to the recital without them.

(Sawa and Konatsu help out by eating for two)

Both the teacher and the Principal were at the hospital, and now Konatsu and Sawa have to hurry to the recital.

Konatsu thinks they might be too late but instead… they arrive earlier than the group!

Apparently, the group is stuck in some kind of traffic jam and won’t be able to make it there.

Konatsu and Sawa brave it up to sing by themselves, with Sakai on the piano. They don’t get a great reception, but Konatsu’s glad that her fears from last year have been overcome.

(A duet is far better than a group.. isn’t it?)

Overall, I though this was a good second episode. I liked that (unlike Glee or K-ON), we didn’t have to slog with the girls for months before they reached the recital. Even the song is given it’s short praise, and the viewer is quickly sped on.

The pace of the series has so far been brisk, but that just shows that there are more better things to come. We have the choir, we have the recital finished… so now what?

I can’t wait to find out how this series will unfold.

Rated 3.5/5 Continues on with good characters and plot at a fast pace. Characters show ambition and promise.

See the next episode!
