Episode Summary

EDIT
A festival comes up and Saitou invites Koyuki to play in a contest with his old band, who looks to cover a Rocket Boys song for the event. Koyuki practices hard, but is unsure if he'll be ready by the time the contest starts. The time has come for the soon-to-be complete band to be named and nothing sticks out until Chiba hears Beck's barking and suggests the name Beck for the band, which is final choice. The day of the festival arrives and Maho visits Koyuki and they head to the festival together and find the bassist of the band drinking heavily and drinks too much and passes out. With the singer also gone, Maho offers to fill in as a lead singer. The two share an intimate moment afterwards while singing that same Dying Breed they were singing earlier.moreless

  • This is a great episode filled with lots of music.

    This could be considered a sub-plot episode, but even saying that it is one of the best episodes in my opinion. It is filled with tons of music references like The Beatles, The Pixies, and more. It is devoted to building Koyuki and Maho's relationship through memorable scenes. The songs Follow Me and Moon on the Water, which are great songs, are featured in this episode and take up most of it. This episode is filled with comedy and even a bit of skinny dipping(still not interested?). Loads of character building in this one and you get to find out how the band was named. Amazing episode that could be my favorite of the series.moreless
