The anime adaptation for The Third Girls Aerial Squad is announced to the public, but it is met with skepticism from the otaku community. Honda decides to pay a visit to the studio to share some cakes and catch up with everyone, surprising the staff with his drastic weight loss. Later on, Aoi and Seiichi hold an art meeting with Yūji and decide to hire another art director named Masahiro Ōkura to handle the background scenes. Meanwhile, the studio is suddenly pushed by Chazawa to create a promotional video in two weeks for a Manga Festival event, meaning certain cuts need to be fully animated quickly. Tsubaki and Sara handle their workloads with varied results, while Sugie notes to Ema her close relationship with Ai. While Misa finds out her specialty in creating CG wheels, Shizuka fills in at a children's stage play when the costume actor goes missing, managing to handle both movement and voice acting at the same time. Later on, Aoi, Ema, Shizuka, Misa, and Midori meet up at Midori's place, where Shizuka and Misa share their experiences and what they learned from them. As production on the promotional video continues, Aoi scolds Hiraoka for his frequent tardiness, especially during the morning assemblies. Then, she is forced to aid Tsubaki and Sara after both get lost on their way back from collecting key frames. After guiding them back to Musashino, Aoi comforts them by sharing her own experiences as a new production assistant. By the end of the week, the studio manages to get the promotional video finished on time and screen it at a party.
