So, now we get to see further into the world of the younger Nogizaka sister. I tremble.What They Say
Episode 8: “I’ll Do You…”
Ordered by Mika, Yuuto goes to her all-girls middle school. Yuuto is taken by surprise when Mika’s friends take him to her classroom and everyone greets him like an idol. Mika and her friends take Yuuto to the Modern Theater Arts and Culture Research Club room, and show him their love-fantasy girls play. However, while Mika was gone, her friends treat her by leaving her and Yuuto behind. It’s already dark when Mika finishes cleaning the clubroom with Yuuto. When they try to go home, they are locked in and trapped in the clubroom.

Ah, Mika. So mischievous. So devilish. She has asked Yuuto to meet her at her school, one of those doesn't-exist-in-real-life, or at least, I seriously doubt it, all-girls schools where they are training young girls to become young ladies. Or something like that.
Once there, a small escort (both in numbers and in size) arrives to take him to Mika's classroom, where Yuuto is introduced as the "real" onii-san (big brother). Apparently, all of these spoiled rich Japanese girls don't know what an older brother looks like. Yeah. Uh huh. After they paw all over him for a while (and we get an inappropriate look at underage panties) Mika takes Yuuto out of the room, since he is about to be overwhelmed by her pre-teen/young teen (it's hard to tell the way they draw them) classmates, who seem to be acting more like crazed fujoshi (female fans of yaoi, the love that dare not speak its name between two males) than the middle schoolers they are supposed to be.
Haruka, in the meantime, takes a bath with Hazuki, the head maid. So, we get lots of steam. Back in school, Yuuto is now slowly making his way to the club room for Mika's club, which is some sort of Modern Theater Club. What makes it different from the normal Drama Club you see in any number of Japanese schools (and American schools for that matter), is beyond me. There, Mika's friends apparently get a little too close to Yuuto (and come a little too close to creeping me out, frankly), before Mika steps in to protest. After that, we see what Mika has really called him over for. To perform a play that she's written, which apparently is nothing more than a thinly veiled love letter to Yuuto. I don't get what the Nogizaka daughters see in plain old Yuuto Ayase but, whatever.
Of course, the fun only starts after the play.
Not fun that I would personally want to take part in however.
Schoolgirl crushes crush hard, and Mika Nogizaka seems to have a very strong case of it for her older sister's friend Yuuto Ayase. So bad that she apparently wrote a play about it. In the end, I think this is one of those episodes that the Japanese consider to be pretty funny, with middle school girls jumping all over a high school guy. Sure. A laugh riot. Yuuto, of course, is the perfect gentleman, even when he is poked and prodded by a class full of girls who seem to have little contact with the opposite sex, and have therefore developed some rather strange notions about the world outside of their sheltered little school. Hilarity ensues. Perhaps.
