The opening episode of Chu-Bra was a bit odd as it takes young girls and plays up the fanservice side of it but it also played rather well to the basic education side and really did work with a more open approach about undergarments. While there is definitely the creepy factor when you consider when this airs in Japan and the actual target audience, the show is one that I have to admit does work well with one of its intended goals of dealing with such issues openly and honestly. Perhaps I'm a bit more understanding of it considering I have kids that go through different stages of some of this and that colors my view of it, even knowing it's pretty much intended to be all about the fan service.
This episode focuses on building up the new friendship between Yako, Haruka and Nayu more now that they have had their first tender bonds formed with the start of the new school year. While the opening episode focused on all of them with the mystery of what's up with Nayu, this one spends a lot of time dealing with a problem that Yako is having. Both girls are flustered by Nayu in a lot of ways because she is so open about her undergarments and wanting to find out what others are wearing. This is actually refreshing for an open discussion because if you can't talk about the simplest of things such as clothes that help you in your physical growth and development, how can you talk openly and honestly about the harder issues that embarrass both kids and adults later on?
