This volume was dedicated to Sachi, the maid character. It also marks an exciting new high water mark in service for 8 bit.

One thing that annoys me in ecchi is when bath scenes are uncensored only to make the nipples almost impossible to see. Seikoku no Dragonar for example. Kudos to 8 bit here for not only uncensoring Sachi’s bath scene from episode 7, but doing it properly.
The disc special exceeds my wildest expectations. It wasn’t very long ago that getting a fully shown boob that wasn’t across the room was new territory for 8 bit. Not only do we get some nice close up shots, but we even get a highly risque tit-washing scene. At certain moments this scene even rivals Haruko’s tit-washing scene from Maken-Ki! Two , with the nipples drawn in an especially lewd manner. I honestly did not think 8 bit would ever reach this level.
Based on what people have said in the comments, it appears this scene was adapted from the original Visual Novel.
If only Walkure Romanze had been this bold.
Obviously, this is a great sign not only for future BDs and future seasons of the Grisaia franchise, but also for the animating studio, 8 bit, which now seems to have almost completely shed their prudish past tendencies.
From what I understand, the first two volumes sold very well (4-5k BD+DVD), so it’s also great to see 8 bit rewarded for their efforts here.
