In this episode we get to see Mini show just how much of a goat she actually is!
The show opens to Kazuya in class crying because he is reading a script that the gang will wind up using for their movie. He gets out of class and goes home to tell Chizuru abut it and she says that she will take a look.
After the handoff Kazuya is in his apartment thinking about Chizuru or mor like stressing over Chizuru, now this is all because of what mini had said to him in the previous episode. All the while back at her apartment Chizuru is reading the script and is impressed with that Kazuya has found!
We come into the episode after the intro to see Kazuya meeting up with Chizuru, and as this is happening there are some guys standing there Gawking over Chizuru. Right as Kazuya walks up, they are like, so THIS is the guy she was waiting for. Inquinating sort of like how can a guy like this get a girl like that. then they head out to a meeting with an upper classman from school. This moment has a pretty funny moment from Chizuru, she sticks her hand out towards Kazuya and ask him for money. Sort of like this would have been a rental date. He goes into Shock, and she says just kidding. It’s nice to actually see Chizuru stating to have a sense of humor and poke a little fun at Kazuya.
The meeting is short and essentially, they ask the guy to keep Chizuru’s acting career a secret at school to which he agrees. He compliments Chizuru’s beauty and essentially ask her if she can memorize all her lines quickly. We all know that she can based on past episodes, seeing how much work and effort she puts into it.
Towards the end of the meeting as they are walking out its raining, so Kazuya runs off to go grab them some umbrellas. Here the upperclassmen tells Chizuru that they had another project lined up as the film club, but Kazuya begged them so much that they decided to take a leap and go for this instead. Hearing this Chizuru says that she really needs to bring it now seeing just how much effort Kazuya is putting into this.
Here is where the episode really picks up! Kazuya realizes that the crowdfunding is failing. And he is not really sure what to do when Mini knocks at his door. One thing leads to another, and she sees the page. One thing leads to another and after a short explanation of what’s going on she says that she can help since she has experience doing one of these before.
After she looks it over, she heads back to Kazuya’s place and calls a meeting with everyone. Obviously Ruka is not pleased with this at first. but for the good of the project after its all said and done everyone agrees to do their part. Mini issues everyone a task and everyone says ok to doing them.
After this we get another shower scene in the season. I believe this is the 2nd shower or bath scene we have seen so far. But to my Suprise it was not Chizuru for once it was actually sumi!
So now we are getting our first glimpse of Sumi for the season. Xae almost called it by saying we would see her in episode 4. Only one off. She was preparing to go have dinner with her dad when she runs into Kazuya passing out fliers for the project. He explains what it is and then goes off on a rant about Chizuru but then realizes how much of an idiot he sounds like and runs off saying tell your dad I said hi.
She winds up canceling her dinner with her dad to go back and help Kazuya pass out fliers. And to our Suprise she actually uses her voice loudly saying please support our project. Really nice to see some Cd here even if its just a little tiny bit.
The final scene of this episode was a big one. Its Mini and Chizuru inside of Chizuru’s apartment and they are getting items ready to list of the crowdfunding site for the tiers. Within this scene we have a few moments, mini explaining how noting is not of value for this when it has touched Chizuru’s skin to almost opening her dresser that holds things like her underwear and what not.
After all this is when it gets super real. Mini ask Chizuru if she has a boyfriend. And hints to potentially Kazuya making a good one. Of course, Chizuru brushes this off. Bringing up old stuff from a time where Kazuya has lied and said he wasn’t renting her because he was into her and how he had no feelings for her. This leaves Mini dumb founded by how blind Chizuru really is. Chizuru even says he isn’t stupid enough to catch feelings for someone who’s a rental girlfriend. But then Mimi Drops the last bomb of the episode by saying But Master likes you Chizuru He is in love with you. Do you really think every person that rents you is capable of just renting you and not catching feelings. Do you really think that not one of those people can be a suitable person for you?
