Refreshing Beginning is the third episode of Puchim@s which aired on January 3, 2013.
The episode begins with a recap of the last episode. Ritsuko Akizuki tries to revive the Producer who is still passed out from Afu's blow. Mami Futami and Ami Futami decide to take action. First they do a super sentai pose action, then they go to Ritsuko's desk and pull out a rice ball she was saving for lunch. Afu eats the rice ball and goes to sleep. Ritsuko is relieved that there is peace and quiet. The Producer comments on Afu's behavoir but Ritsuko dismisses it. When Mami and Ami ask if they can still keep them, Ritsuko doesn't care. She sits at her desk and thinks she will have to take care of them. Yukipo climbs up and decides to rub her back. She thinks the ordeal might not be so bad after all.
