Some neat stuff happened in this episode.
We kicked off the episode with a “Red Light, Green Light” mini-game for PECO Tsubame was working on and Hajime helped guide her in the right direction.
The problem was that while Tsubame had little problem working on the mini-game it felt like it was missing something. Hajime didn’t know how to properly tell Tsubame to work on the specs some more so the other ladies gave her a head start.
The second time went better but Momo noticed a little snafu internet critics would also see and got into a little quibble with Tsubame over it. Hajime cut Tsubame some slack and told her it was fine the way it was but signs pointed at that the specs needing even more changes. Tsubame then told Hajime that while these delays didn’t affect Hajime very much for her they were very worrisome, what with it affecting her future job application resume. The two agreed to take things more seriously.
Later Umiko-kun dropped by to check up on Tsubame after getting word from Hajime and even invited her to play airsoft to relieve stress. She then explained Hajime being a recent employee of Eagle Jump’s and didn’t have much experience. Thankfully Hajime worked things out and the two were able to present a superior version of the mini-game to Director Hazuki.
We then joined Nene on her noble quest to earn the praise of her beloved. She got to a point where the maze was about finished. There was one small bug at the finish line but Nene didn’t think it was a big deal. She went around asking if she could help with other duties but everyone was busy correcting specs and bugs. Before deciding to take it easy Tsubame scolded her for not properly finishing her maze. She then gave her the idea to add more content to the maze.
Nene didn’t get to add new features in time but she did get one step closer to her personal goal. As far as her career goal went she was at least heading in the right direction. She didn’t get to work on Programming yet but at least Umiko-kun acknowledged her debugging skills enough to work a little bit on PECO. Keep it up Nenecchi! You’re doing well.
The second half had most of our heroines split up in pairs and enjoy the night. I will only discuss one pair in particular.
So it had been a LOOOOONG time since we got a RinKo scene but here we are. Ko and Rin were the only two left at the office and Rin came prepared. They talked about how big of a change it was for Ko working alongside Aoba and Hifumi on PECO compared to before when she pretty much did all that herself. Ko said she would have been fine doing it by herself again with PECO. Rin then told her she had Aoba and Ko to be co-designers in hopes that the two working together would push them to create something more amazing, which is pretty much what happened.
Ko then took the time to thank Rin for being by her side from the very beginning, always supporting her. To show her appreciation she got her a special gift. Rin of course was ecstatic but also a bit concerned. See, in the afternoon and even now Ko looked like something was bothering her.
Guess we’ll have to wait till next time to see if Rin’s concern is justified.
