Hi, this is yukipapapa.
New Game! Episode 06!
In this episode, we finally meet Aoba-chan’s best friend, Nenecchi!
Also, I’m so pleased that we get to see Aoba-chan in various outfits!
Now, let’s look at the highlights of the episode.

1. Aoba finally receives a designing job she longed for and realizes the fun and severeness of the job!
After finishing all the villagers’ 3D modeling, she receives a character designing job for an important NPC.
She has longed for doing it for so long, but she isn’t confident enough.
Hearing that Kou-san was already the main character designer when she was at Aoba’s age, Aoba-chan feels a bit down.
But soon she is encouraged by Kou-san’s words:
“I love this job. The most important thing is to show that you’re having fun”.
It’s really awesome of Kou-san to be able to declare that she loves her own job.
I can see Aoba-chan is very motivated now and it warms my heart.

2. Aoba’s best friend, Nenecchi appears! Her interaction with Aoba-chan is soothing!
Aoba’s childhood friend, Nenecchi, showed up only in the C part or talking on the phone, but she finally appears in the main part of the episode!
Aoba-chan looks young herself but even she finds Nenecchi “childish”.
Nenecchi is so tiny, and her simple and innocent behavior is very cute!
She can soak in the fun of being a kid again, as she enjoys receiving a theater item for small children. On the other hand, she is mature enough to have her own opinion about money: she believes that lending and borrowing money could destroy friendships. She has a fantastic two-side view of things.
While acting mature, she gets teased by Aoba-chan. Such interactions are very soothing!

3. No men allowed! You can’t take your eyes off Aoba-chan when she is in different clothes!
Aoba-chan usually wears a suit at work, but she appears in many different clothes in this episode!
First, we see her in plain clothes, when she goes out with Nenecchi. A dark colored one-piece dress makes her look adult-like and cool! The way she fixes her hair in front of the mirror in a natural, girlish way got me excited.
Next, during her office sleep over, we see her dressed down with one low pony instead of her usual twin-tails. Her changing animation was so realistic. The sakuga (animation) staff never compromises on the quality of these scenes.
Finally, she wears a bear-like sleeping bag. She looks like as if she were being eaten by a bear. It makes her look like a very cute mascot.
I wish we get to see her in different clothes next week!
