Having incurred a large debt, Kinji has no choice but to work for one such company, but he never loses his inherent desire to rise above his circumstances, no matter how many setbacks he has to endure.

Meikyuu Black Company Episode 3 Spoilers
In episode 2, Kinji discovers that all the workers hate him now. He finds out that he and Wanibe have been assigned to the Exploration Division Group 8, which places them on the frontline of dungeon exploring, right where all the monsters still exist. While working there, Wanibe gets attacked by a tentacle monster and is subsequently admitted to a hospital. The management then forces Kinji to cover Wanibe’s shift on top of his own.
The following day, Kinji and one of the members of Elite Group 3, an exploration unit, are attacked by a colony of dungeon ants. Kinji and others manage to save themselves by drinking transformation potion and turning into ants. Realizing that the management has shut all the entrances to the dungeon and left them to die, Kinji teaches the ants equality and socialism and starts an uprising. When an enraged ant queen tries to attack him, Rim arrives. Kinji saves both the queen and the colony from Rin by satiating her hunger.
The episode ends as Kinji reveals his plans of becoming the head of the company to Wanibe and asks him to join the Dungeon Black Company, which now includes Rim and the ant colony. In episode 3, Kinji might meet Shia, who seems to believe everything that company has told her. She may find out that Kinji has created connections with the monsters and threaten to reveal that to the company management.
