The white apron is a metaphor for sexual purity, and the dirtied apron is for somebody who has been "dirtied" by experiencing physical intimacy. This puritanical mindset is held by Akane, who has a crush on feir coworker Erina and wants fem to remain "pristine." I cringe a bit at this attitude fe has because I know it's not healthy to view sexuality in those types of terms, but it's sort of okay in the context of this story since Akane is intentionally being portrayed as mentally unhealthy and creepy. The story doesn't really have a happy ending and it's not a sweet, heart-warming story or anything like that. In addition to Akane and Erina, the only characters who matter at all are the manager and another coworker named Nakajou. There is a trans character in the story*, though that aspect honestly just feels somewhat tacked on. The art is very pretty, with some detailed eye-work and precision in what it portrays. The portrayals of emotions felt a bit off somehow, maybe overdramatized. *I was wrong. I misinterpreted the author's intention. That being said, I think it's largely the author's fault for assuming that people would interpret the final scene in a non-trans way.
