After the big commotion over Episode 3, everything seems to go back on track with Ohana settling to the new school for the first time. Later, Minko reveals that she has a crush on Tohru, which she is somewhat insecure about.
It seems that Ohana improved her relations with Minko a little bit. Sadly her actions still irritate Minko rather easily. Instead of telling her to die, she calls her Hobiron, which is a fertilized egg of a duck … Still, it’s pretty insulting nevertheless, but it’s a step up from being told to die.
The funniest part of Episode 4 is everyone being excited over Ohana living in the city that everyone practically became fangirls. After getting flooded with questions, a girl named Yuina grabs Ohana to escape the crowd of people. Like Ohana, Yuina is a very pretty and a smart girl who is a granddaughter of a strict grandmother who owns an inn. Since their experiences are so similar, she makes a good friend for Ohana.
Tsunderes are extremely picky when it comes to the person they have romantic feelings for and Minko is no exception. She harshly turns down every love request she receives at school. When she describes the boy she likes, she basically admits that she likes Tohru. Knowing this, Ohana has an idea to use her new nickname she came up with by mentioning something about Minko’s love life and she overreacts to it.
The next morning, she gets really violent to the point were she tries to strangle Ohana near another inn even though she is terribly sorry for making those statements about her crush. In the end, it seemed that Minko got really upset when he saw Yuina climbing onto Tohru’s motorcycle playing a song about partying.
In Episode 5, we learned that Tohru was missing from work and Minko becomes depressed… To add to the fuel of the fire, Jiroumaru adds more false rumors that he will quit his job and get a new job at Fukuya. At this point, she gets very depressed since she will never get to see him ever again and won’t be able to join him over at the Fukuya Inn since she is very inexperienced. Also, her future is very questionable since Tohru convince the Landlady to give her the job. This explains her strong feelings for him since he is her mentor and likes his personality a lot.
In the end, she pretty much pushes everyone away, until Ohana force her way through and helped her. She stormed into the Fukuya inn and finds out that it’s a big misunderstanding and that Tohru is covering for one day. He also allowed Yuina to ride with him on the motorbike since she wanted one too… After I saw this, I facepalmed since Minko got worked up over nothing!
After sawing the whole incident unfolds, Minko is showing that she is a big tsundere. She knew from the beginning that Tohru is not going to leave without telling everyone about it. After seeing her get worked up, Minko lacks self-confidence, which is why she reacts so harshly around her peers like any tsundere. In the end, she has finally warmed up towards Ohana and she allows her to be referred as Minachi, which made me glad. Since they have finally made up, hopefully they will start working together well into the future.
