The consensus of this episode? Misaki closes the maid cafe at night and some stalkers broke in and held her hostage.
It’s shocking to see a crime where men try to break in and molest or even rape girls… I would have thought something like this will happen in Newark, New Jersey, a city where it would had a lot of this type of crime… although not near the university area in most cases. I also wondered why the such weak security in a maid cafe. They could have put better locks and security systems to prevent such a break in from happening.
Misaki believes that she is stronger than a normal girl just because she knows aikido. However, it does not mean that she is completely safe. Usui reminds her after Misaki knocks him into the water that she is still a girl and the result… she drives Usui away saying he is mocking her as always. The problem here is Misaki herself. She seems to have this mindset that Usui is doing this to annoy her or something. However, it is the opposite. Even though Usui likes to tease Misaki for fun, he seems to have some sort of feeling for her that he wants to protect her from people who are going to harm her. From this, it is still going to take some time until Misaki realizing this and get over the fact that Usui is not out just to annoy her. Baby steps… people.
Considering how poor the security is, no wonder maid cafes are an easy target for stalkers. As demonstrated on the first night, Usui went in since the back door was unlocked. If there increasing reports of these incidents… why don’t they have better security so that it won’t happen. How about door bolts and security alarms? They could also had police patrolling since they know damn well that the incident is likely to happen… I’m guessing the extra security would make the atmosphere look ugly.
Also, Usui notes that the two men dropping a cup and a spoon just to get the attention from Misaki. Yes, Misaki is awesome and all, but no one has no right to molest a girl… Man, these men are very perverted and no wonder Misaki doesn’t like men… besides Usui secretly, which she calls him annoying. If it wasn’t for Usui breaking a window to distract the two men, she would have been molested by them. She should have been more grateful for Usui causing a diversion that allow her to fight back… Of course, the chief is horrified by the broken window Usui broke to try and save Misaki… and yeah… the stalkers just wanted to be smacked around by Misaki and eventually, they went to jail.
Also, whose idea is it to have the crime protection tools out in the open? This will give the stalkers an upper hand to make the victim helpless… What they could have done is hide the tools and run to the secret spot when a stalker come, take the tool and use it against them…
Lastly, we haven’t seen the last of Aoi-chan… and s(he) sets the background to that embarrassing picture of Misaki.. and then Usui wants a picture of it and he gets it…
The episode overall is a rather good one. The problem with Misaki is that she hasn’t got out of the mindset that all men are bad. If Usui was bad, then he wouldn’t save her from those ruthless stalkers. Not all men are bad, but eventually she is going to recognize that fact sooner or later, but not yet… since after all… Usui loves Misaki what she is and it is going to take time for her to realize that…
And yes, please improve the security of the maid cafe to prevent this from happening again… k, thx. :p
8.7/10… and improve the damn security why won’t you. :p
