THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
So Umaru plays shooting games too. Fun. I loved the little metaphors with her involved in an army outfit.
The double life of Umaru is just so amusing to watch at times. Think she might of overreacted from her dream though. Ebina is still cute as a button. One noticeable thing about the episode is that Kirie sees Umaru in her true self. I found it more amusing that she didn't recognize her. Based Kirie:
As a manga reader I gotta say I liked Kirie's introduction way better in the anime. The way they animated her reactions is just perfect. I also got over that feeling of her VA not going well with the character. Unexpectedly good episode.
For everyone, some shyness is normal. You have it more or less and that why humans can construct a society smoothly. If you didn't have shyness at all, you would be an arrogant person and could't be a friend of someone who would reveal his/her shyness and feelings to you.
Japanese animes often focus this matter and Kirie is an example, too. You'll see that Umaru putting on an act of being nice when outside the home is sometimes shy and timid.
Kirie is too shy to ask Komaru (Umaru's imaginary sister)'s help for introducing herself to Umaru... I guess she was afraid the it could be breach of etiquette. What a shy girl!

And the best part is that Ebina is a watermelon, because Ebina has big...

The word translated as "game" in that line means more of "playing/messing around" or a kind of activity a kid would engage in. That's what I can gather from it. A fairly close approximation would be like the brother saying that it's "just a game", and Umaru yelling "AN FPS ISN'T JUST A GAME!!!".
Great episode, the every episode is getting funnier and entertaining, the comedy is surprising me, I laughed a lot with Umaru jumping into his brother's arms and he dodging her, I look forward to continue watching ..
