This episode opens by following-up on Mokuku’s efforts the last time around as the crowdfunding has done really well and the whole thing is a massive company now that, as the narrator says, is almost like paradise. Of course, that hasn’t changed much for the people employed there as they’re mostly as useless as they always have been. But now they get to do it in much nicer digs. There’s some amusing bits as they get used to the place, especially with the women seemingly wearing only bunny style outfits, and we go through the fun of some new armor arriving that doesn’t work well if you have nothing up top. Sexy armor is harder on some wearers than others in different ways.
The follow-through with what Mokuku was up to with the crowdfunding is amusing but it doesn’t take long in the main part of the anime episode with the short for it to lean back into the familiar, from the location to the sexy armor that a certain someone can’t wear because she’s flat-chested. Those jokes continue to be a staple in anime, sadly, and it doesn’t do much for the character other than upsetting her. You’d think a good sexy armorer would have something for someone like her instead of losing a sale…
