At last, Shamiko earned enough money to pay back the debt she racked up from Momo. On the other hand, Momo wants Shamiko to spend the money on her little sister, Ryoko. It’s obvious where Momo’s intensions lie.
Now that Shamiko has all the money to pay off her debt, she is ready to fight Momo. Not so fast as Momo doesn’t seem interested in accepting the money. She tries to persuade Shamiko to spend it on a commemoration trophy or on her little sister.
While it’s obvious that Momo cares about Shamiko’s well-being, it’s apparent that she wants to keep her in debt. At this rate, Shamiko will never be able to fight Momo. Then again, Momo might not be interested in fighting her at all and want it stay like that way.
The funny part is when Shamiko is waiting for Ryoko at the marketplace. Momo followed Shamiko. Shamiko doesn’t seem happy that Momo is around. When Ryoko finally comes, Shamiko states that Momo is her best friend. While Momo seems shocked, this is probably the truth given how many times Momo helps Shamiko.
On the other hand, Shamiko says to Momo to pretend to be her best friend. Still, I question this since Shamiko has feelings for her, but won’t admit it like any tsundere would. Shamiko and Momo is probably more than just best friends as seen in some of the scenes. Not to mention, Momo blushed when Shamiko said that she is her best friend.
With that, Shamiko bought something special for Ryoko. It’s a digital camera that Ryoko wanted. Apparently, she was eying it and became emotional when her older sister buys this. Ryoko takes a picture of Momo and Shamiko together. She later uses that photo in her report, which she receives a good grade on.
I find it funny when Momo explains to Ryoko how to take the pictures off the camera through USB, Shamiko thought it was United States of America and worries that she needs a passport. As you would expect, Shamiko is technologically illiterate. It’s not too surprising since her family is too poor to own a computer. Still, Shamiko becomes upset at Momo for trying to lure her little sister away.
In the second half, Momo gives Shamiko a lifeline and lent her a spare laptop. It’s funny how Momo scares Shamiko by telling her that the laptop is very delicate. In other words, Shamiko shouldn’t throw stuff, step on, or get it wet. This scares Shamiko as she doesn’t want to get into more debt with Momo. I find it funny how Anri and Ogura Shion, who usually hangs out with Shamiko created obstacles for her.
Thankfully, Shamiko manages to overcome those, except for the barking dog. With that, we finally see her transform in her “Crisis Management Form.” Just like a magical girl transformation, she transformed and her outfit looks like what Lilith wears. Afterwards, Shamiko complains how skimpy the outfit is as she becomes embarrassed. Somehow, this was enough to have the girl who is walking the barking dog away from Shamiko.
In the end, Shamiko ends up doing the thing she fears. She accidentally trips on her ancestor’s statue and dropped the laptop bag. Then, Ryoko running to Shamiko accidentally steps on the bag. Afterwards, Shamiko’s mother comes with hot water and a towel. She accidentally trips and spills the water on the laptop bag.
Thankfully, Momo knew that would happen and put the laptop in a protective water-proof bag. She came super prepared and put the laptop in a water-proof protective sleeve. She wrote a letter telling Shamiko what she did and not to worry about the laptop getting damaged since she can fix it. Lastly, she tells her not to cry and stay strong.
As expected, Shamiko is blushing red while reading the letter before she erupted saying her usual saying when she “loses.” Then again, she doesn’t want to admit that she is grateful for Momo’s help. After all, Shamiko secretly have romantic feelings for Momo, but won’t admit it. ¶
