#22 - Noa's in Her Underwear

Noa wa Shitagi Desu. (ノアは下着です。)

Duration: 00:24:00
Aired: Mar 12, 2015(JST)


After being assigned as the animation supervisor for the thirteenth episode, Yumi, pressed by her large workload, nominates Ema to join Rinko as an assistant general animation supervisor to help her handle some of the cuts, having been impressed by the progress she displayed since Exodus!; however, when Aoi asks her about it, Ema responds that she lacks confidence in herself to take up the job and has to think it over. As a backup plan, Aoi approaches Segawa with the request. Though she declines, Segawa becomes impressed be her sincerity and regains some of the motivation she lost following her incident with Hiraoka, returning to work on the twelfth episode. Meanwhile, Ema checks on Midori and finds that she is enjoying her job in script ordering. Later that evening, as Nao Shinkawa drinks over her troubles alongside in-between animation inspector Chiemi Doumoto, Hiraoka shares with Tarou about how his horrible experiences during previous jobs left him with a cold attitude toward the anime industry. Meanwhile, Misa comes over to the studio to get some advice from Ema on how to improve her CG animation. She eventually manages to improve it greatly by incorporating 2D animation techniques into the mix. The next day, Ema receives encouragement from Sugie and decides to take up the assistant supervisor position. Afterwards, she relays her confidence to her mother, which in turn gives Ai the confidence to attend a meeting by herself. Meanwhile, just as recording wraps up on the final episode, Katsuragi is shocked to learn that Nogame has rejected all of the last episode's storyboards. (Source: Wikipedia)
