Episode Synopsis

Ayumi, Kei, Koyoi, Rika, and Nao are walking home, talking about how they want a prospective love interest to confess to them. Ayumi, who has never had a boy confess to her, expresses her desire to be confessed to and that she would unconditionally go out with them. At that moment, an ogre of a man, Misao Zaitsu appears. Although he is in high school, he has fallen madly in love with Ayumi and hands her a love letter. Ayumi is too afraid of what might happen to her if she rejects him, so she tries to avoid contact with him. Unfortunately, he starts to follow her to and from school every day. After she collapses from exhaustion, she is brought to the nurses office by Mamoru Zaitsu, who she immediately falls in love with. However, as she says his name she realizes that he is the brother of Misao, and passes out again. When she comes to, her friends are standing around her. She tells them about Misao and they tell her that she needs to give him an answer. On her way home from school, she tells Misao that she will answer him when she has thought about it, and that he should stop following her around. Without Misao following her, she is soon kidnapped by high school students who want revenge on Misao and plan to use his "girlfriend" as bait. At Misao's home, he recalls the time he was injured in a fight, and his memory of her smile in his brother's class photo is what brought him back from near death. He then gets a phone call from the kidnappers, telling him to come rescue his love. When he arrives at the warehouse, he starts beating the kidnappers, but is stopped when they threaten to expose Ayumi's panties. The kidnappers then start brutally beating Misao, until Ayumi tells him not to give in and that he shouldn't worry about her. She then unties her ropes and knocks out the nearest kidnapper. Misao then proceeds to knock out the remaining offenders. When the fight ends, Misao asks Ayumi if she is ok. In response, she kicks him crying that she was really scared. The kidnappers are terrified that she could beat Misao and beg for her forgiveness. Meanwhile, Misao is ecstatic that the kick gave him a great look at Ayumi's panties. The next day at school, there is a rumor that a middle school girl was able to beat Misao.
