This episode’s main goal was to remind viewers there are guys pining for Catarina’s heart too. I said this last time but episodes centered around guys I won’t bother delving deep into but the ladies had their moments so let’s talk about them instead.
The first highlight was Catarina’s personal maid discussing the positive changes after Catarina hit her head. One of them was the head maid Joana becoming more open and jolly serving her though she still irked hot mom with her tomboyish (not ladylike) antics.
Skipping Keith and Geordo’s attempts to woo our ditzy heroine we join the trio at a lake. She liked it so much she’s like “Let’s have everyone else join the fun!”
There were four boats and eight people. How very convenient. Naturally everyone wanted to ride with our heroine. Let’s check out what the ladies had to say.
What about Best Girl?
Who did the wheel of fate favor on this fine day?
Next up we had Sophia invite Catarina on a shopping trip. Nicol tagged along too. I mentioned this in my First Impressions post but of the three harem girls Sophia has made the least assertive moves. She seems to want Nicol to get some benefits too. I may be overthinking it but something tells me Sophia’s plan is to help set up Catarina with Nicol. That way after they’re married she can monopolize her to herself. I could be wrong but that’s the impression I got (No manga spoilers). At least she prefers same-sex romance novels (she picked up a BL novel). She also mentioned remembering something about the two having gone on a shopping trip once before. Dunno if that will go anywhere or it was part of her plan to help Nicol but we’ll see in due time.
I don’t much care for neither Nicol nor Geordo.
Skipping ahead again we had an Alan piano recital. I mentioned before liking Keith and Alan so that’s cool. The song he played was called “For You, My Dearest One”. Catarina of course didn’t realize it was dedicated to her but a certain alpha female contemplated on the matter.
She’s like “Curses! He’s becoming more aware of his feelings for my queen. I must lead him astray again later. I cannot afford more competition!” Later when Catarina joined Geordo for a dance Mary did the same with Alan to distract him from his growing love.
Never give up oh glorious one!
Oh and I guess the bullies saw the seitokaichou staring at Catarina and grew jelly. May lead to something another time. He claimed to not be interested in anyone romantically but you never know.
While doing her best (and failing) to finish all her Summer homework on the night before school resumed (The episode was set during Summer Vacation). She of course dozed off. She had a dream about discussing the Otome game with her bestie Acchan. We got a brief glimpse of her in Episode 3 when Catarina saw Sophia going up some stairs. Could there be a connection? Again, no manga spoilers. They discussed which Endings they got. Acchan got them all, including a hidden route our heroine didn’t want spoiled. Could it be?
Look at that. I found a way to barely talk about the guys even though they got a lot of focus this episode. Go me! Another good episode regardless.
