|Episode 4 - This is My Alice|
Hotaru uses her wacky inventions to save Mikan from the teddy bear... then she scolds her and tells her this place isn't so nice that she can have such a careless attitude towards everything... then they get attacked by a giant mutated chick... after barely escaping, Iinchou says they need Luca's help to calm all these angry animals. So he uses his Alice to lure Luca into the forest.
Luca refuses to help Mikan at first, but then Hotaru threatens to blowdart the chicken instead. "I don't mind, I like chicken meat."
Hotaru gets a picture of Luca playing with the tori, to threaten him into accompanying Mikan through the forest... Natsume seems pissed when he hears that Luca is helping her.
This is like the opposite of Mikan... is hiding his smiles for Natsume's sake... when Mikan hears that Natsume is here against his will and doesn't even want his alice, Mikan apologizes to Luca for insulting that guy...
Natsume comes and threatens Mikan to tell him what her alice is.. but instead of using his fire on Mikan herself, he only manages to use it on Iinchou and Hotaru... Mikan still can't figure out what her alice is, and the only thing she can do is run up to the raging Natsume and call him an idiot... he's about to unleash a strong attack against her, but she neutralizes it by pushing him over.
Then Narumi shows up, puts Natsume to sleep, and explains that Mikan passed by showing her neutralizing alice...
Hotaru: "So in short, Mikan has an alice that can only protect herself. A selfish alice that fits her perfectly."
Natsume shows up to class the next day wearing a cat mask, and with a bruise on his neck... Narumi assigns him as Mikan's class partner, and Natsume keeps telling her she's an idiot for being so simple minded and trusting this school... Mikan notices the bruise..
later some Natsume fans set up a trick to make the teacher hate Mikan and she ended up getting assigned a no-star rank... Hotaru got back at the people who framed Mikan by "fixing" their item... the next day, Mikan stopped being whiny and started working hard to improve her lifestyle and move up from no-star. Hotaru came and reassured her that her star ranking means nothing and they are still the same people regardless.
