And Then, As I Stood Before the Refrigerator

5 My experience with anime, is that if you're thinking, you're overthinking.  The rare exceptions are awesome.

7 So, Berg Katze, Rory Mercury, and Excel Excel walk into a bar...

I'm not sure what's going on here, but I'm pretty sure it's not what we've been shown so far. Also, the makeup in episode 3 is extremely thorough.
