Episode 3

Here comes an episode focused on Kirie, and as always it's cute to see her and Umaru in her himouto form interacting. So it begins with Kirie meeting Alex for the first time by playing a dating sim together. Then Umaru is up all night playing an addictive game, and one week of nonstop play later no rare item. It turns out Umaru isn't the only one playing the game around the clock. So Taihei decides top play co-op little by little only for the game's sequel to come out. Then Bomber comes over with Umaru freaking oout over a pot of oil. Then Kirie is back at the apartment where she is given a fanservicey figure by Alex that she is about to dispose of, but she thought better of it. Then by watching a NcDonald's commercial Umaru craves a burger, so everybody goes there after school and Ebina orders a lot of them. That was pretty funny once again, and Kirie really makes things go.

Episode 3

The episode begins with Kirie coming over to Umaru's place and she meets Alex for the first time. They end playing a dating sim together and Kirie uses her experience with Umaru to pick a choice in the game and gets right it. Next there is a popular 3ds game out and Umaru is really into it that she spends a lot of time on it. After talking with Ebina, Taihei figures out a way to to help Umaru play less by by himself a 3ds and copy of the game and only playing an hour everyday. This works as Umaru starts playing less and they complete the game in a month only for the sequel to be announced. Bomber comes over to hang at Taihei's place and when he starts cooking he notices that it starts to rain and goes to get the laundry. Bomber and Umaru see this as a chance to see what his cooking but Taihei comes back and warns them not in serious tone. He explains that he left the oil heating so that's why he didn't want them messing with it. Kirie goes over to Umaru's place again only to find Alex there once more. This time Alex brought some presents and gave Kirie a figurine that he got a special event. She goes home early and thinks about throwing away but then reflects on it and decides to keep it. At the end Umaru see's a hamburger commercial and thinks about it the whole day. When going home she lets it slip and Sylphin tells the girls they should go eat some. The episode ends with the girls eating hamburgers and are surprised to see all the burgers Ebina order.

Episode 3 is highly relatable. I too when I get addicted to a game ends up playing it non-stop for a long time. Also, I really really really want junkfood right now. I don't even have a McDonalds in my city ; - ;

Kirie's usually fun, and Ebina is always great. The rest? Eh.. compared to some of the other stuff this season that is similar in genre, Umaru as a whole is just feeling extra lackluster.

i'm adoring Umaru so far this season. I think this season is far superior to S1. I like how there is more focus on all the girls and Umaru outside the hamster personality.

The sound design is on point too. I thought the music during Kirie's flashbacks and debating on throwing the figure away were perfect. Then the hamburger scene with all the girls together was (to steal Harp's line) "Majestic."

I think it's really nice that Umaru is realizing that she has friends and there is more to life than her Otaku lifestyle as well.

Ha another funny episode, poor Kirie now Alex is cockblocking her, and now Bomba thinks she's even weirder collecting ecchi figures haha. Ebina (well and the rest of them too but especially Ebina) eating hamburgers was great, she has to maintain her figure if Oniichan is ever going to notice her.

Thoughts on the first 3 episodes:

Man, that was a rough start to the season. It had none of the charm or humor that we had come to love. I shiver when I think of a SoL version of Umaru-chan, very typical. I was honestly thinking of dropping it right after the 1st episode. I think the thing that made me keep watching was the bizarre ED song which is so cheezy and dorky that I started to love it. I hung on to a second episode and everything returned to it's previous glory.

They pulled the entire cast together after that and even managed to bring a couple of new ones in. Kirie is yet again my favorite character, I really wonder what inspired the creation of a crazy character like her. They dropped a subtle hint about Kirie and Bomber's family, which I thought was interesting.

One thing I found clever was how the Bomber x Umaru scene in episode 3 where Bomber asks for Ebina. Usually most shows leave out any sort of mention about romance/feelings like that, so I thought it was nice that the show made it clear the characters weren't oblivious to this. Overall I think we can all feel the show is quickly getting repetitive. They're using the same formula as last season, with spontaneous and ordinary nonsense, but somehow it works out nicely for this show. Can they really keep this up for an entire season? Let's find out. Also, did anyone else see any changes in the art style? The way they draw Ebina seems fundamentally different to me.
