12 episodes into the second season of frivolous restaurant based slice of life, Working!!, the females determine who is the strongest yet flattest chested amongst them, before continuing along with other nonsense.
“Slender” androphobic waitress Inami decides to seek advice from her friends regarding the topic of her recent success in managing to not hit Katanashi for many days consecutively on end. It’s not because she’s ill as Taneshima and Yamada initially did think, rather, she’s actually been doing well to avoid punching any men – that however is another issue in itself, she’s simply been “avoiding” them, instead of actively interacting with them and restraining herself from the unfavorable.
Of the several training activities to ensue as a result, the first involves getting Inami more comfortable around males – yet to ensure no males are killed in the process of this fatal stunt, they must resort to drastic measures. Females obviously won’t work as they’re female, males would be murdered instantly, and males dressed as females (Takanashi) simply defeats the purpose – thus they choose to have a female dress up as a male. Initially attempting to use Kyouko for this purpose, it turns out the manager’s breasts are simply too large.
They instead must find a strong girl with a flat chest – and incidentally, Inami is the only one who meets that criteria. She ultimately takes the role, although nothing productive occurs thereafter unsurprisingly as there’s not much substance to becoming a male herself – she’s basically the same person just now wearing pants, Katanashi’s pants at that. And once she realizes she’s fitted in Katanashi’s clothing, havoc erupts to bring an end to this venture – only to then prompt the start of the second affair.
Yamada concludes Inami should communicate with the males of Wagnaria one by one, basically holding the same value as a scheme to eliminate them individually, even if that is not Yamada’s intention. No matter, it begins – starting first with Sato, Poplar and Yamada bring Inami to chat with him, yet he uses a way with words to distract them as he backs away quietly – finally redirecting their attention to Soma.
Soma near immediately becomes in life threatening danger as he invokes the wrath of Inami – yet Sato graciously saves him, having tossed Yamada’s stuffed bear “Daisy” in front of the line of fire.
While that ends well, another matter of interest arises – as Sato is conversing with Katanashi on the topic of living alone, Yamada intervenes to boast she’s better than Sato as she’s younger and lives alone. However both Takanashi and Sato are quick to concur that rather than “living alone”, she’s more like a freeloader. Karma later comes back to haunt Yamada as she arrives home to Wagnaria later in the day, during a dark night, only to find everyone’s already went home and the shop had been locked up with the assumption Yamada was sleeping soundly inside.
However she wasn’t – now Yamada bursts into adorable tears as she’s locked outside in the night, her phone is also inside, and she’s of course got little to no money. As Yamada begins wailing for her mother, luckily for her, Sato arrives – having earlier sensed something to be off he has returned to find a crying Yamada. Although Yamada still tries to keep up her haughty attitude even to now, as Sato tells her he’s leaving she apologizes, accepting defeat.
The remainder of the episode surrounds the increasingly unrequited romance of Ianmi and Katanashi. Takanashi still fails to recognize anything in regards to her love, yet he is becoming closer to her through other matters and various misinterpretations – meanwhile, Inami’s merely the same as ever. With perhaps only a single episode to go, it’s highly hoped to be one which brings some over the top closure to at least one of the open plot points, instead of merely adding more.
