"This Is Just Turning Into Cos-purr-lay!" (これじゃあただのコスプレだにゃー！ "Kore Jā Tada no Kosupure da Nyā!") is the second episode of New Game!!.
The contest gets underway, with participants tasked with designing a character who can absorb enemy abilities. While eager to participate, Aoba feels somewhat uneasy comparing herself to Ko, who Yun believes is destined to win. Meanwhile, everyone assumes Hajime is tired from working on her own design when she had really just been binge watching anime all night. To everyone's surprise, Shizuku rejects Ko's designs, feeling they are too similar to Fairies Story, and instead approves a design Aoba drew up based on her bear sleeping bag, asking her to build upon it for the next contest. Frustrated by her loss, Ko lashes out at Aoba when she comes to her for advice, leaving them both filled with remorse. Reflecting on her own experiences of her seniors being harsh towards her out of jealousy, Ko helps Aoba to refine her designs in time for the next contest, which leads Shizuku to appoint both of them as the main character designers for their next game prototype.
