Last time, Misha have found her own rival. This time, it seems that Tsubame might have another rival, or rather, another woman who has a crush on her.
While Misha and Mimika parts way, Misha runs into a strange white-haired woman wearing Gothic Lolita fashion. Her name happens to be Ukai Midori, a former first Lieutenant in the Japanese Self Defense Force that comes from a wealthy family. The funny thing is that she peeks into Misha’s room the same way Tsubame did in the first episode.
This time, Midori reveals that she has a huge crush on Tsubame. Of course, Tsubame rejects her confession several times. Midori even willing to pay Tsubame to be her maid, which she also rejects. Yes, Midori is that desperate to win Tsubame over.
Of course, Misha finds this as an opportunity to get rid of Tsubame once and for all. Before she can do this, she listens to Midori’s tradgic story on how she developed a crush on Tsubame. Apparently, Midori worked on training dogs for the Japanese Self Defense Force. One day, Tsubame is reassigned to her unit and given how ripped she is, all the dogs obey her. Midori fell in love with Tsubame at first sight.
In short, Midori develops a huge crush on Tsubame and became a masochist. In other words, she starts acting like a dog. Not only that, her strength doesn’t quite match Tsubame’s, meaning that she allows Tsubame to defeat her at every match. In an alternative universe, it would be a good pairing. In reality, it’s not going to happen, especially given Tsubame’s preferences.
With how Midori is acting, it’s easy to see why Tsubame wanted to quit. Besides Midori’s behavior, it’s obvious that she wants to pursue her dream of being with Misha forever. Still, I find it funny how she uses the same reason to reject Midori’s confession as she did during high school. I have to give Midori credit. She has persistence despite how many times Tsubame rejects her.
With that, Misha tries to replace Tsubame as the family maid with Midori. The only problem is, I don’t think she can do that. After all, her father hired Tsubame for her talents and strength. Since Midori isn’t as strong or talented at cooking as Tsubame, I don’t think Midori stands a chance.
Like with past attempts, Misha’s Hail Mary plan to fire Tsubame will end up falling flat on her face. Even if Midori receives a beating or loses at a maid competition, Tsubame will remain Misha’s maid no matter if she likes it or not. Then again, Misha will most likely end up regretting her decision of getting rid of Tsubame and want her back. We have to wait and see next week. ¶
