THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
Popular finally reached the list (= she grew up), which made Takanashi mad. lol @ three of them hitting Yamada for saying "believe me that the list does not get lower" part.
"Normal" girl's turn again. lol @ Yamada for pro of worry.
Popular is thinking about the future, and might need to quit the job. lol @ Souma giving a photo of Popular trying to stretch higher. lol @ everyone's reactions to Popular's leaving, but actually she was just worried about the testing. Even Male Yamada, "normal" girl, and "Otoo" are involved. So she's going to do both job and school work.
Same with the last season (+ Yamada), they said welcome at the end.
Maya seems to always show up for the last episode, I think she had more lines in this one though and actually interacted with everyone so that was nice. It's perfectly normal for a normally normal girl to normally talk to her not so normal co-workers at a job that she normally goes to.
Sato was cute when he was trying to annoy her and Poplar was awesome in this episode.
It was a disappointing episode, it was just filler and not much happened, though we did get our token cameo of Maya Matsumoto which was fairly funny (though I don't like her that much).
I was really worried at the beginning because I was hoping for so much with this, but thankfully on the whole it was great. I was thinking of giving it a 9, really I was, but that last episode made me drop it to an 8. Also, for me to really rate this highly, it's got to go about resolving the relationships. In fact, if there is another series, then I'll raise it to a 9, if not, then I'll keep it an 8.
Looking over the episodes, they've only really been really fantastic or distinctly average, my episode highlights being 4, 7, 8 & 9 off the top of my head (If the favourite episode thread was still around, I'd put episode 4 up, I really loved that episode). Also, Working'!! has my favourite cast in anime, possibly, if not the top, it's way up there, because they are all so enjoyable, and work together so well. If I love the cast then I'll love the show, so Working'!! really has the potential to be in my top 5 animes, but I feel it's let down by the fact there isn't much progression in the relationship department, and also there were a few episodes I didn't care for. It's a strong 8 though, and I'm hoping for a next season so much, a season I'm dying to put a 9 or 10 on, because I really do have high hopes.
I love how the last episode Matsumoto gets her screen time just like the last season but this time she talked Alot!!,and its pretty clear how she thinks now *enters Normal mode*but can be easily confused by Reverse psychology proven by soma and satou-kun lol.

We need more Maya in third season she is funny.
Her obsession with being normal doesn't make her normal tho that's what's great about her.
The reactions she makes are so funny and the way she tells things is nice.
Hope next season will show is the meeting of the Yamada siblings.
"Omg omg oh noes sob sob Poplar is leaving us"
"No I won't"
It was anticlimatic, it didn't feel like a season finale.
Many things were left open, like the fake Yamada twins still not meeting, or Inami's and Satou's crush still going nowhere.
And what about Takanashi's sisters? They only appeared in one episode and half, and that's it.
Next season needs 26 episodes and focus more on side characters. I want to see more of Maya!
On the comedy side I think it got much better than first season, so nothing to complain here.
Not a bad episode to finish the season but it wasn't great.
This shows needs more Maya she's awesome :D, though Souta really needs to get a grip with someone growing, his reaction was so :@.
Glad to see Popura isn't leaving, the show would not be as good without her :).
I hope the third season if there is one will be longer so that there is more development and more loose plotlines will get closer to being sorted such as the Yamada twins scenario.
This series definitely has more comedy than the first, was originally going to rate it 9/10 for the whole series, but this episode sort of disappointed me so 8/10 for the whole series now.
This show needs more Maya in the episodes, I think she would be a really good side character if she is given the screentime :).
Merry Christmas Everyone :), and Thanks to the people who created Working!! not a bad christmas gift with the subs :)
