Since the second season of New Game will air next week, I may as well take a look at the original animation that released a while back.
Apparently, Aoba is on a company trip with everyone else to relax at a ski resort. It’s not surprising to see them take a break since they had a successful game release. The funny thing is that in a nightmare, Aoba did not get off the lift on time. It seems that she is nervous given her bad experience. As a child, she and Nene accidentally slid down the hill while trying to ski and hit a snow pile.
Thanks to Hifumi, Aoba became able to get off the lift rather easily. It’s not surprising to see Aoba enjoying skiing since Hifumi is there. It seems that they are having some great bonding time while Yun and Hajime is having fun skiing too.
As for the others, Umiko is doing tactical training in the snow. Of course, Kou managed to catch a cold, which means Rin has to look after her. Then again, this is not surprising since Kou said she will take it easy.
In the second half, I have to admit that I felt sorry for the snowman that Aoba created. It seems that she enjoys torturing them in the sauna. Of course, she makes more while she is in the hot spring while spending time with Hifumi. She submerges them and of course, they shrink. That is cruel, but then again, snowmen are inanimate objects that will eventually melt.
Aside from that, it seems that while Aoba, Hifumi, Yun and Hajime spends time in the hot spring, Rin, Kou and Umiko had dinner. I have to admit that this is the funniest part as Kou and Umiko had a drinking match. Yes, Kou eventually calls “Umigon” while drunk. I have to admit that is hilarious and apparently, Umiko doesn’t complain about it immediately.
After a while, Umiko doesn’t seem to care if Kou calls her Ahagon after becoming drunk from drinking drinks with more alcohol. Not only that, Kou laughs at her when Umiko couldn’t pull out the meat out of a grilled snail. It shows that at a certain point, Umiko can become drunk. Still, it’s funny to see her that drunk.
In short, this original animation is a nice and relaxed episode with a lot of light hearted moments. With that, everyone should feel refreshed as the company plans to work on their next big project.
Note: I know the first episode of the second season was leaked, but I will plan to cover it once it’s out officially. ¶
