We joined Hajime on a pseudo-date with Yun and her siblings at an Insect Five show. I should have expected to see Hifumi there as well but I still burst out laughing.
Anyway an old friend from high school, Akki came up to say hello. I don’t think anyone was surprised by how Yun reacted to Akki being all chummy with her. As for Hajime, it’s one of those “I don’t want to show this super cool friend of mine that I’m really a nerd/otaku and not a cool babe like her” scenarios.
Hajime got along well with Akki and the third friend as they were sexy fashion babes but she didn’t want to tell them about her “nerdy” hobbies. Sadly we live in an age where some people still didn’t get the memo that nerds are awesome too…as long as they are mentally sane of course.
As we all noticed throughout the show Yun’s not as social as Hajime so her looking like she did in high school isn’t too surprising. Anyway Yun decided to change herself and be true to herself, thus becoming the lolita dressing cutie we know and love.
Yun talked about how hard she worked to change herself and was embarrassed by how much more fashionable Hajime was all this time. Hajime then said in her own way that she liked the way Yun dressed, getting her hopes up for a second. The Akki thing was resolved as one would expect from a lighthearted comedy with dramatic elements.
After the commercial we joined the gang checking out Tsubame and Momo’s very impressive game. The others saw their talent and gave them legit assignments.
Tsubame and Nene had to make a 3D Maze mini-game though because Nene’s not as skilled as Tsubame hers was more a trial to work on her 3D programming skills while Tsubame’s was a legit mini-game for PECO. To the surprise of very few NeneUmi’s professional relationship is still as cute as their, shall we say, personal one.
Umiko-kun went off to work on other stuff while Nene and Tsubame talked about their aspirations. Tsubame brought up her middle school years with Momo and her dream of wanting to work in the gaming industry together with her. Nene, as we all know, initially joined the team for the lulz but then it became so much more. This bothered Tsubame because while she’s putting her heart and soul into her dream Nene’s getting an easier road to the top because of her relationship with Umiko-kun. Though taken aback by Tsubame’s harshness she did understand the need to step up her game lest she wanted to be left behind…or worse.
Momo’s assignment was to design the following characters. She accepted after 10 seconds or so.
At the dinner table we saw how careful Tsubame was cooking for Momo. Very meticulous.
To sum up the Momo/Tsubame segment, Tsubame is Momo’s waifu and seems to be having the same troubles Hifumi, Yun and Rin are, furthering solidifying this as a show about cute and sexy lesbian office ladies having difficulty confessing their feelings to their crushes.
