At the start, Ryouko and Ringo hunt down a stalker who tried to attack Ryouko with a knife. Just before they fight, someone throws a stone at the stalker’s hand, conveniently disarming him and allowing Ryouko to beat the crap out of him.
Unfortunately, most of the members, if not all of the members are female, the club president laments. They want a male helper.
Then, just like a fairy tale, Morino-san, an attention-shy boy from Ryouko’s and Ringo’s class, confesses his love for Ryouko, only to be flat-out rejected. Nevertheless, Ringo takes a shine to him and brings him to work for Otogi Bank. His first mission is to help out with a favour to prevent Kakari’s crush from resigning from Tennis, which he fails at initially, but cycling the girl in a pumpkin (not making this up), he fails yet again – crashing due to his fear of being looked at and flinging her towards him, knocking him out and thus effectively succeeding.
At the end, he uses himself as a human shield when Ryouko gets attacked by the stalker from the start of the episode. He becomes accepted by Ryouko, who decides to call him by Ryoushi, and thus the episode ends. After the ending, there’s a scene where the tennis ace tries to find the person who knocked him out, Cinderella-style – testing out the shoe and allowing Kakari to kick him several times in the face.
To be honest, unlike most of the other users over at MAL, I loved the narrator. Why?
It’s because she’s funny. Since after all the entire series IS a parody of fairy tales , the narrator is a parody as well – instead of being the wise, humble narrator, this narrator makes jokes throughout the episode – and always take cracks at the characters. Not to mention that the characters are aware of the narrator’s omniscient existence – which is funny as well.
The narrator constantly makes jabs at how flat-chested the both of them are – which I find to have two levels of humour, since One: the way they react is funny, and Two: Kuroko is flat-chested as well. Irony? Never mind.
…but seriously, what I fear is that Morino will screw it up by being nothing but a wimp for the rest of the series. He’s like Araragi, only wimpier. Hope he gets better.
