Nodoka arrives in the clubroom with a sample of the graduation yearbook. The yearbook needs to be checked by Sawako, who is sick with a cold.

Second TV special (aired after the end of K-ON!!), to be considered episode 22.5 of the second season.
[edit] The ↗K-On franchise:

First season:
  • (2009) K-ON! (1st season, 12 TV episodes)

The least embarrassing one of the three specials for the second season but not even close to the much better K-ON! OVA.
Starting with a lot of silliness (and Yui being as childish as much earlier in this show), this DVD special episode manages not to drown in memories but make the next step, showing how the baton is going to be passed on.

But still, this episode has a strong "everything will soon be over" undertone - in amazingly sharp contrast to the lyrics of the great ED song ("We don't need memories because I love 'now' so much - I will say 'no, thank you' to the sweet luxury of being lost in memories like an adult" - does that indicate how 'mature' the K-On members have become?). Story development has come to a standstill, moé has taken over complete control - and somehow I like this episode nonetheless.
