Still can't get over the unintentional hilarity of that title! Very Happy I burst out laughing when I saw the headline; that does NOT sound like something I want to see!

With a synopsis like that, you just knew it had to have one. Laughing

The women will appear in swimsuits; so what? Swimsuits weren't risqué back in the eighties, let alone nowadays, so I don't see what the big deal is. Unlike the Encouragement of Climb bonus episode which will apparently have a girl in a shower scene, the characters in Mangirl! are post-university adults and won't even be naked. Given how raunchy many bonus episodes have been in the last few years, I struggle to see how a swimsuit episode is going to be all that enticing. It's extremely tame by comparison.
