It turns out Mr. Famous Novelist isn’t very famous and has to write perverted stuff to make ends meet. When our wide-eyed heroine stumbles on his secret, he ties her up. Don’t get the wrong idea — it’s all for the sake of his craft! Hm, yes, this is a reasonable thing to do with a 16 year old girl. Somehow Ohana isn’t too nonplussed by her predicament.
It isn’t long until everyone else at the hot springs inn finds out what’s going on, leading to a wild car chase (the entire inn staff came along for some reason), a botched attempted suicide, and Nako to the rescue. Oh how unexpected and wild — I am at the edge of my seat. Y’see, diving headfirst into the water is like a complete 180 from how she normally acts and this amazes and shocks us (not really). As a result, wet t-shirt shot!
She hasn’t had any character development whatsoever so it just doesn’t work. Just suddenly throwing a curveball without establishing the fastball doesn’t fool anyone; it’ll just be hammered into the stands.
All’s well that ends well, right? Perverted novelist is still emoing it up so Ohana launches into a vomit-inducing impassioned speech about how he’s so talented even if he’s writing smut about young girls — oh God, I feel like I’m watching some lame family dorama but without half the charm and camp. Cue up the solemn piano track! Kiddies, there are always lesson to learn every single day!
At the end of it all, Nako and Ohana become fwweeeends~ yay. Minko is still a bitch though, ho hum. Feeling that “Die!” didn’t quite get the job done, she has picked up ‘balut’ as an insult. Does anyone still think she’s a mature character? C’mon, really?
She’s so adorable in her hate, uguu~! Hardcore Minko apologist for life!
