It’s more like Misa-chan playing right into Miyabigaoka Academy’s Student Council President’s trap…
It’s not surprising that Kaichou wa Maid-sama plays with some of the usual Shoujo clichés. Comparing to the Ouran Host Club, Miyabigaoka is viewed as a villian. Underneath Igarashi’s nice image shows a dark side and the urge to try and influence lesser girls with money. As we all know that money can influence and corrupt one’s mind.
In Episode 5, Misaki thought she was strong enough to defend herself after hearing the news that some talkers were breaking into maid cafes? The result is that she ends up getting held hostage by two stalkers. She ends getting saved by Usui. How about the issue that she thinks she is a boy when she is dressed up? Usui saw through it and reminded that she is still a girl. The same problem here when Misaki decides to confront Igarashi and she plays into his trap. The problem is that Masaki is too gullible and thought that Igarashi too nicely of him. When Igarashi wants her because he isn’t satisfied with the girls he have… You got to say that he is a womanizer.
As in real life, Igarashi insists that by human nature, human beings are lured by money, no matter what. Therefore, he thinks that Misa-chan is the same like the rest of the women. As a result her message of denying his offer is drowned out. Igarashi attempts to be more of a pervert than anyone else until Usui storms into the room and save her from the big pervert.
Besides wanting Misaki, there is a reason that Igarashi wants to take away Misaki from Seika High School, so Seika will suffer. By the end of the episode, a group of Seika High School Students outside of Miyabigaoka doesn’t want Misaki to transfer. This proves that the students from Seika High School actually care about Misaki. The actions in this episode makes me thing that Igarashi is going to try and lure her back again or blackmail her in future episodes.
Besides from that, Usui saving Misaki yet again was quite funny. After they left, she pushes him at first and go deredere… It proves that she is a tsundere when it comes to Usui as with the other episodes. In addition, the drama feels a bit forced in the first half of the episode, but nevertheless a good episode. Misaki remains too gullible, which could land her in situations like these because she is too hot headed. She has a lot to learn until she could act rationally in avoiding these situations.
