On this episode, Itami and his group sleeps over at this ex-wife's apartment and goes shopping. Later, they go to the hot springs while the Self Defense Force's special forces guard them.
Why? Why is there another part? I seriously wanted to watch the entire plot or see it longer but then again, I guess it's a good thing since they didn't rush this specific scene (and I did complain about some rushes and alternatives they did after all earlier). Anyway, as usual, I liked seeing more of my favorite plots getting animated. Also it was pretty nice to see Itami and his gang move around in Japan. Other than that, I'll be looking forward to see Rory take the action spotlight on the next episode. Overall, cool Japan political plot continuation.
Conclusion: Cool Japan political plot continuation.
