Hajime's first interaction with Aoba was when Kou asked Hajime about borrowing the latter's lightsaber to use as lighting. Hajime introduced herself and was flustered when Aoba called her Senpai. The two had their impromptu break together with Yun and Hifumi and they talked about their first experience and a rumor which Hifumi confirmed as truth. Then, when Hajime talked about Kou, the latter appeared and gave her a bump on the head.
Days later, Hajime attended the Welcome Party for Aoba. She laughed and made aside remark when Kou and Rin taught Aoba how to properly pour an alcohol. After the Welcome Party, Hajime escorted a very drunk Yun home.

While the two was picking what tablet pen to buy, Hajime started lecturing Aoba how to deal with errands and when they're about to pay for the tablet pen they picked, the two found out that Aoba left her wallet at Eagle Jump while Hajime must've dropped hers. Afterward, while Hajime was with the customer service, she has her internal monologue about Aoba. Minutes later, Aoba walked in and presented Hajime the latter's wallet and told Hajime that she found it on her desk. While walking back, Hajime told Aoba she was cute which the latter said the same for her and Hajime started acting cute. After returning, Hajime and Aoba were greeted by a surprised Kou. Yun butted in laughing at Hajime's force cuteness and the latter ran away.
Days later, Hajime asked Kou if the latter can really scold the three latecomers which Kou said she can.
Bonus (On their Days Off?) - Aoba asked Hifumi, Hajime, and Yun what they do on their days off. Yun answered that it's a secret and Hajime asked her the reason why that's so. Yun then tells Hajime the reason is also a secret. (Hajime's Days Off.) - Hajime came to watch a hero stage performance and said it was great.

When Rin and Aoba talked about evaluation, Hajime said that the character team it rough under Kou's supervision making Aoba asked what she's doing in character team booth. Hajime and Rin explained the former situation to Aoba.
One lunchtime, Hajime asked Aoba what she'll do and Aoba answered that she won't take the break. Hajime called out when Yun asked Aoba t repay her double the thing she just gives.
Hajime and Yun told Aoba about their first time designing a character when the latter got the job. The two asked what kind of character Aoba was tasked to do and thought that it's Aoba for the same personality. Afterward, while Kou, Rin, and Aoba were talking, Hajime interjected, saying she loves animating Aoba's work and changed the subject to what she'll going to do when she becomes a boss, making Kou and Yun say they'll quit
Hajime, Yun, and Aoba tried reenacting what's happening on a meeting by giving each other their status report. They also asked Hifumi for hers who told worriedly told them that the remaining number of character and days didn't match up.
