Episode 2

An art competition is coming up, and Aoba is having a hard time figuring out what she wants to draw. She sure does have a crazy way of approaching things using her pencil and eraser like that, and she finally breaks through with that bear sleeping bag. Then comes the competition, and while Ko's artwork is excellent, it lacks vision as it's too much like Fairies Story. While it needs polishing, Aoba's bear ends up being accepted. Ko sure took that rejection hard, while Aoba is still struggling to improve the quality of her sketches, but with Ko's help the sketches are refined, and Aoba and Ko are chosen as the character designers for the next project. Pretty nice to see those two putting their collective heads together just when things were getting bad.

Another fun episode with solid story progression and character growth. And no real eyebrow raising fan service as in episode 1. Plus, no Nene. All good here.

I just really wish they would confirm Ko and Rin already.

Nice episode not just Alba is evolving but looks like most of the cast is striving for more really cool to see the company try a new game completely different than last season might be risky but no risk no reward

Damn, drama at Eagle Jump, say it ain't so, but of course it will take more than that to drive a wedge between Ko and Aoba. This show's pseudorealism with the characters personalities is what makes the show so great, everyone's not perfect. Love the ED too cute and am I mistaken or is the bear Nene rides across the sky behind Ko and Aoba "farting" hearts as it goes? LOL.

Pretty interesting & cute idea for a game actually.

Continuing to love Ko and all her flaws. I empathise with her on not wanting to kill people's motivation, yet not wanting to compromise either.
If Rin doesn't watch out, Aoba will slowly occupy Ko's heart, and then we'd need a yuri faceoff, or a nice fluffy time share.

The challenge for an artist is find their own style.

The challenge for a designer is to constantly step outside of their style.

Is it me or is Aoba's winning character design based on her in her sleeping bag from last season?

Yes it is. She actually said as much this episode when she looked under her desk while thinking about maybe having to pull an all nighter and saw it was still there.

Rather unexpected ramp up of emotions. Didn't think something this serious would come up until the last episodes. That said, this was great! Everyone's moving (or trying to) towards new directions and facing hurdles along the way. The dynamic between Aoba and Yagami was particularly touching. Seeing Yagami be frustrated and Aoba be so strained made the characters much more endearing to me. Their actions and reactions epitomize how much their craft means to them. Also, thank goodness for Rin! Loved how she nudged Yagami towards making a good decision.



The Hajime bit was hilarious. Everyone was unknowingly praising her for watching Dandy Max. What I adore about Hajime is, once she realized there was a misunderstanding, she corrected it pretty quickly; and then she had to do it (presumably) to her senpais. On a side note, good for Yun to also start progressing.

Can't believe that bear sleeping bag influenced Aoba's designs. So cute! Eagle Jump's new game is in early development, but I already want to demo the game!
