JAPANESE GLASTONBURY! And a new ending theme.
Man, I really want to know these epic harsh conditions they made for the band, and why Ryuusuke decided they didn't care when he heard Koyuki's Oasis-type song. I'm interested to see how that develops.
Speaking of which, Maho's and Koyuki's relationship developed some in a way I quite liked today.
Sigh, need sleep.

Ah, Koyuki. You've got a hot girl in your bed and you snuggle up with your Telecaster. What fun.
And hey, your mom likes her. That's a plus.
I'm actually writing this about four hours after watching the episode, since I had to go out, so my memory's kinda fuzzy, but the scene of Ryuusuke and Maho breaking into Koyuki's house was just pure win, from "Hey, I thought you didn't want to wake your parents?" to "Here's some protection."
And I reckon I can see where Koyuki stands on this love triangle now that he knows it exists. I also reckon that he's not going to be stupid about it this time and deal with it sensibly and tactfully.
But who gives a crap about that? JAPANESE GLASTONBURY!!!

Yep. That's a good place to leave it for now.
And there were two clear halves to this episode. The gangster half, and the normal Beck half.
It's a shame about Beck leaving, but to be fair, Ryuusuke did steal him. And I'm actually pretty glad that he didn't escape, it would have demeaned the whole kidnapping.
That said, you don't smack someone over the head and run. You smack them over the head and beat them into unconsciousness then run like buggery. Ryuusuke lacks thoroughness, though he'd probably have gotten his ass kicked more if he'd fought as hard as I would have.
It was good to see him play with the old guy with respect. Probably what saved his life, but now he's quite likely gonna end up with some depression and not be able to play properly.
Now for the second half of the episode. I'm damned glad to see Koyuki getting somewhere with Maho. Yoshito, you just got owned by the film industry. Step the hell off.
And the band's name is now Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad. Pretty cool, and I can see why they changed to name for the US release. 
Well, before I go,
"Bugger off! Get that camera outta my face!

I just want to study for the lesson I'm about to teach. Is that so wrong? Is there any reason I can watch just one more episode without it ending on the gangster dude knowing Ryuusuke's face, that he has lucille, and taking a helicopter to his house?
Dammit Dammit Dammit.
Well, back to writing. Something's up with that telecaster. Guitar strings do NOT break that much.  Then again, when they do break, they often break together.
Dissapointed by the lack of Maho in this episode, but it looks like she'll be around next one. 
And Koyuki's really improved since the start of the series, hasn't he?

Holy- they actually stole Lucille AND Beck?! AND Lucille is the actual Lucille? Not THE Lucille, but another famous Lucillie guitar. 
Damn, I saw that coming, yet I did NOT see that coming.
And dammit Koyuki, what have I told you about keeping it in your pants? Hell, I'm sure you intend to, but come on, don't be thick. And what's Saku doing, egging him on? 
Man, people need to sit down and think sometimes.
And now there's a gunman hunting Ryuusuke down. Now this'll be interesting. I get a feeling that Koyuki's gonna get pulled into this. 
Actually, A solid body Telecaster may be able to defend his scrawny frame somewhat against low-calibre bullets. Now THAT'd be poetic irony.  
Well, I COULD study for the class I'll be teaching in about two hours, but I reckon I can squeeze another episode in.
