“There is Substance in 2-D”
“Niji ni Honshitsu Ari” (二次に本質あり)
Konata and her father have a discussion on how well the Gundam franchise has done, and how the series is still very popular, despite its age. Konata’s father recounts when he watched them when some of the older series first came out. At school, Nanako gets depressed, after seeing her students go to Miyuki for help, instead of herself. After finding out that Hiyori draws dōjinshi, Yutaka asks her what kind, but Hiyori keeps it vague, finding it hard to tell her the truth. While Yutaka, Minami, and Hiyori are out together, Hiyori spots two people cosplaying as Roy Mustang and Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist, though only Hiyori notices this as she spans photos on her cell phone.
