Stuffed Mayu is cute~~. Must be hellish to have a guy who can cook real well.
The trio have been captured and bound in a room, where they discuss who is behind this, while Mayu loses her thoughts on Shungo and Reika kissing each other. Hosaka arrives to save them, and gets Reika Punched for not being able to find out what happened. They proceed to escape, but Mayu triggers a trap and gets shot at, which fortunately turns out to be a BB gun. Hosaka proceeds in front of them after that, and he gets shot as well, but this time, he collapses in a pool of blood.
The soldiers appear and surround them and Reika wants to take revenge but Shungo stops her and escapes. Unable to run far with both of them, he knocks Reika out and tells Mayu to take her and run to safety while he deals with the soldiers. Shungo successfully takes out the chasers, but a mysterious masked woman knocks him out. He is captured and brought in front of the leader, and gets tortured, reminiscing on the past where he defended a girl from being bullied.
Mayu, Saikyou Densetsu. The birth of a devil XD.
Meanwhile, Mayu and Reika seek refuge in a
cafe cave and wonder what to do next. Mayu is determined to save Shungo and Reika hatches a plan. She sends Mayu out as a distraction, and Mayu manages to take out all the enemies by triggering all the traps they’ve set, while Reika goes ahead and saves Shungo, but the same masked woman knocks her out.
Shungo is angered and fights with the woman, successfully breaking her mask… only to reveal it’s his sister, pranking him. Shungo looks in disbelief and faints after that. A while later, Mayu wakes up the knocked out Reika and together they escape from the island with Shungo, still worn out. When they all return, Reika expresses her anger at being pranked like that, making it worse that her maid, Shinobu is actually the leader of it. Reika worries about what will happen next, but she still manages a smile.
A nice end to the two-episode beach arc, and it really gave quite some development on to Reika’s character. Man, she’s really endearing :). A new character is also introduced, Shinobu, the token meido-bodyguard with a 100% tsun-tsun on the main character initially. Looks like Shungo isn’t gonna get any rest for a while. Best part of the episode has to be Mayu taking out the soldiers by setting off all the traps herself, not to mention with “The March of the Valkyries” being played in the background. God, I still LOL every time I watch that part. Seriously, Mayu’s dojikko and tennen is so high, it’s a lethal weapon. Good thinking by Reika there, hehehe.
Next episode, well, it’s probably gonna be more hijinks and a real introduction for Shinobu’s character.
