Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
Having seen the girls do a couple of different things to try and raise awareness and attendance at the zoo, they’re now going into another expected area – pro wrestling! Considering its popularity in Japan, it’s surprising that we don’t see more of them. The girls form WUG, a new organization, and get going with all kinds of silly animal/girl wrestling moments. With the zoo managers serving as commentary, we get some silly fun as the various personality clashes come to life in this new form here with a whole lot of goofy intensity. Naturally, there’s not a lot in the way of real wrestling here, but we get a lot of verbal sparring and insults being flung about as grudges are dealt with in silly ways – including song.

In Summary:
The show certainly knows how to hit the right little quirky notes along the way with what it wants to do and providing a wrestling episode is definitely spot on. While wrestling does absolutely nothing for me, it provides a cute outlet for the characters here to have some fun without being all that physical since they go in a different direction. Just getting some of their names and seeing Hayashi win the day and title at the end is pretty fun to watch.
