Summary:

Right before summer vacation, Selnia cashes in on the favor Akiharu owes her for working on photobook in the previous episode. Selnia has Akiharu take her partner card and has him come over to her home for his assignment. The assignment this time requires Akiharu to accompany his partner home for 3 days during summer vacation. At her home Selnia is greeted by her maids and father, who keep assuming Akiharu is Selnia’s boyfriend. When Selnia tries to explain he’s only her servant, it just makes them think it’s a forbidden relationship with a servant. Selnia explains to Akiharu that she had him accept her partner card and brought him to her house so that he can obey her orders and do impossible tasks. Before Selnia can start enjoying bossing Akiharu around, Akiharu corrects her and tells her that the assignment this time requires him to become a trainee at an upper-class home, which is why he needs to go to his partner’s house. He has to observe the servants in the house go about their duties.

Selnia goes into shock after hearing this, and her father takes a helicopter back to work. Selnia begins showing Akiharu around the mansion and explains to Akiharu the meaning of all the photographs in one of the rooms. They’re there to remind the Flameheart family of its history and honor. Selnia notes to Akiharu that one day she will inherit everything from her family, so she has a responsibility to protect the family name and honor. Meanwhile at Tomomi’s home, she and Daichi are looking through an old album with pictures of Tomomi and Akiharu when they were kids. It seems after Tomomi missed her chance to give her partner card to Akiharu, she blackmails Daichi to accept it instead. It seems Tomomi did notice that Daichi is a girl.

Back at Selnia’s mansion, she and Akiharu are playing chess and it seems Akiharu is winning with 5 straight wins. As they’re playing, Selnia’s maid comes in and informs her that she has prepared a bed for the two of them. The maid explains that the other guest rooms are being cleaned, so there’s only one bed available. Selnia tries to dispute this, but Akiharu starts acting strange all of a sudden after eating some chocolate.  At that same time, Daichi asks Tomomi about a picture where Akiharu is in a battered room with a bat in his hands and a strange expression on his face. Tomomi explains that Akiharu gets drunk easily and at that time he ate a chocolate whiskey and started going crazy.

Back with Selnia and Akiharu, Akiharu being drunk starts harassing Selnia. He first starts with some commentary and questions on Selnia’s sex appeal, and goes off tangent and comments that Tomomi has no sex appeal at all. This eventually escalates and Akiharu ends up on top of Selnia, but before things go too far Akiharu falls asleep. The next day Tomomi and Daichi come to visit Selnia. They play on the Flameheart private beach that’s usually reserved for the servants since it’s their way of showing their appreciation to their servants. Daichi spends most of the time under an umbrella since she’s too hot inside her butler uniform. Akiharu tells “her” to just put on some trunks, but Daichi tells him a butler needs to be in uniform. Tomomi comes over to him and asks Akiharu if anything happened last night with Selnia, and Akiharu replies that nothing could happen and sarcastically apologizes for not living up to her expectations.

Selnia notices Akiharu and Tomomi talking to getter and gets a little irritated and goes off for a swim. While out in the ocean, Selnia’s bikini top comes off and while Selnia frantically swims over to get it she gets a cramp. Selnia starts to drown, but fortunately Akiharu notices her and comes swimming to her rescue. Upon getting her back to shore, Tomomi and Selnia’s maid encourage Akiharu to give Selnia CPR since she’s still unconscious. Tomomi is encouraging Akiharu as a joke, but her facial expression quickly changes when he agrees to do it. Just as Akiharu is about to give Selnia CPR, Selnia awakens and slaps Akiharu in the face after misunderstanding the situation. Back inside the mansion Tomomi is deep in thought after the previous events, and Akiharu and Selnia are outside on the balcony. Selnia apologizes to Akiharu for misunderstanding and tells him it’s important to show gratitude when you are in debt, and she formally thanks Akiharu. Akiharu tells her she’s amazing, but Selnia takes it as sarcasm. Akiharu assures her that he genuinely thinks she’s amazing. Selnia tells Akiharu that she will now reward him, and goes up to him and gives him a kiss.


Opinions:

Okay, this was certainly a Selnia-centered episode, but my favorite moments involved Tomomi. I enjoyed seeing some of the photos of her and Akiharu as kids, as it gave us a good idea of how they were as kids. Something I found interesting in the old photos was how Akiharu didn’t have that scar on his left eyebrow yet. I would imagine that will play a role later on in the story, I would hope anyways. Other things that amused me were how Akiharu compared Tomomi to Selnia and said Tomomi had no sex appeal. It would be interesting to see if this is mentioned later on to haunt Akiharu. The biggest development was the kiss between Akiharu and Selnia. From the look and stance of it, it seems to be a kiss on the cheek. I could be wrong, but I hope we’ll find out next week.

Speaking of next week, the previews indicate that it’ll be a Tomomi-focus episode. Looks like its Tomomi’s turn after Selnia, and judging by Tomomi’s expression when Akiharu agreed to give Selnia CPR it seems Tomomi is beginning to realize she has feelings for Akiharu. One of the pics in the preview that I wasn’t able to post has Akiharu and Tomomi in a Print Club picture with a heart-shaped background. I would assume this would make the next episode a date between Akiharu and Tomomi, but we’ll see. This episode has a lot of potential in showing us more of Akiharu and Tomomi’s past.
