On occasion during the series there are times where we see Yui, Ui, Nodoka, Ritsu and Mio as children such as when Mio was remember when Ritsu was giving her confidence to speak infront of the class (where Ritsu pretends to be a Pineapple) or when Yui was drawing and offered Nodoka the Red Crayon she had....before thinking about eating it herself.

I am wondering how long ago these flashbacks occurred?


These are the 2 scenes you probably mentioning in your question.

1) You can re-watch episode 8 of K-On!!, roughly at 07:20, Nodoka answers Mio that she first met Yui in kindergarten. (Approx. 12 years ago)

2) In the same episode, at 12:38, Ritsu relate her first impression about Mio back in elementary school. (Approx. 8 years ago)

3) The actual year is not confirmed yet, maybe plus minus a year or so.

  • I should point out the 2 scenes I mentioned were the ones I remembered off the top of my head and I was hoping for a complete list of the flashbacks. I remember another was when Yui and Ui were putting a star on a Christmas tree but I can't remember any more beyond that if I missed any – Memor-X Apr 1 '16 at 13:26
  • @Memor-X You should re-watch episode 8 of K-On!! (season 2), there's a lot of flashbacks in that episode, and the Christmas thingy is on season 1 episode 7. – Happy Face Apr 1 '16 at 13:32

The answer given is correct, so I am only adding on. You are probably asking about this one (in the comments):

This is when Ui asked for a white Christmas and Yui decorated the tree with cotton from a pillow to make it look like snow. This was either in kindergarten or very early primary school, because Yui does say that she forgot her homework a lot.

Other flashbacks include this:

which was during primary school camp where Yui forgot the cooking sachets, and this:

where Yui forgot to bring octopus to make takoyaki. This was also in primary school during cooking class.

If you want to check the full flashbacks, they are in season 2, episode 8, and season 1, episode 7.
