Misaki: Be ready to be spanked!
Misaki shall not tolerate slow-witted baboons to play around the Student’s Council room; thus, she would smite and spank thee!
Of course, Usui has to butt in and say some double-meaning dialogue. Due to recent news of assaults to cosplay café personnel, the manager of Maid Latte has bought some self defense equipment. Misaki isn’t really bothered even after Usui’s insistence as she knows Aikido and can handle it herself.
Usui, the man of MANY deadpan faces!
Misaki goes on a rampage to complete all the paperwork of Student’s council at a record time. On her way back in the evening, she sees Sakura still in class, who stayed back to complete her homework.
At the Maid Latte, while staring down Misaki while she works (Jeeeeeeeeeee~), Usui notices two guys one of whom drops a spoon deliberately to make her pick it up and get a new one. After closing time, the other colleagues leave Misaki behind due to piling assignments and another part-time respectively.
While locking up, Usui creeps up behind Misaki, who she readily throws into nearest fountain for leverage. He clarifies that he was just acting like a stalker because she forgot to lock the back door.
He makes her realize that however strong she is, she has to be careful knowing the fact that she’s a girl. Misaki gets embarrassed and throws him out the shop. Usui sighs to himself of her not getting the point. He sees the same two guys who run away seeing him.
Misaki gets a treat from the manager for staying late, which Shizuna tries to ration for breakfast and afternoon tea.
Next day, in school, Usui simply watches over Misaki. She on the other hand is relieved not to find him at Maid Latte; however, the two suspicious dudes from before break a glass and get her to clean up. After she courteously cleans and leaves, one of them comments that he can’t control himself anymore, seeing her being such an ideal maid. Creep Alert!
Usui hears about assaults from news spots while flagged by two cougars to have some fun. I loved the fact that his expressions didn’t change whatsoever and continued to be deadpan as he passed them by without even a glance.
At Maid Latte, Misaki locks up the back door after cleaning. She’s again staying late due to a union meeting of managers. However, the two creepy dudes finally corner her with taser. She silently complies while her mind overworks to get their weakness. They handcuff her and tell her proudly that according to them she’s the idea maid. Usui, acting on impulse shows up at the backdoor of the café but doesn’t interrupt. He had his back turned when he overhears one of the assaulter’s’ speaking. The assaulters are ready to pounce, mumbling about how perfect ‘Misa-chan’ is and how they really know her. That makes Misaki finally snap out with pure brute force. She breaks the cuffs and goes all out smacking the perps’ lights out.
I couldn’t help but LAWWWWL!
Police show up to arrests the perps, while Manager arrives after the commotion is over. She actually does pass out seeing the broken window as Misaki predicted.
Later on, Misaki tells the tale to Aoi and others at café. Aoi is not surprised of the outcomes and he sets her cute picture as her cellphone wallpaper.
Usui slinks in to get a copy of that too, who finally causes Misaki to overload with steam and blushiness attack.
Conclusion: This episode was funnier than the last few. I laughed my gut out in the right places. The chemistry is increasing between the pair and this time it was more natural. One would ask: why Misaki is so clueless? Is it her nature or the protective strong shell under which she has hidden her feminineness? I think she isn’t aware of her true feelings and thinks of Usui as someone she has to compete and win a race.
Also, why Usui is so taken with her? The guy, who is popular yet isn’t really interested in typical girls? Even then he found an uncanny match in Misaki that piqued his interest? He’s very protective of Misaki it’s quite clear and he’s very kind at heart, not to mention! I’m guesstimating here more as I haven’t read the manga too deeply. I’m glad that I didn’t, which gives me a fresh perspective to story.
I would like to know more of Shizuna who is always planning and applying for something. She seems sharper and mature than Misaki. Let’s see what happens when the three delinquent fans of Misaki get to win a picture contest at Maid Latte next week around Misa-Usi.
