|Episode 9 - Owner Inauguration, Sister Attack|
Maika finally realizes the manager likes her, after she shows the beach photos to her friend at school.
Then Maika finds an abandoned dog and brings it in and tries to get someone else to take care of it, she says she can't because her siblings don't like dogs. The manager ends up getting stuck with the job since the dog chose him, and he can't refuse when he sees that the dog's eyes are similar to Maika's...
The manager lives in an apartment above the restaurant, and Maika goes in there for the first time after he hides all his otaku stuff.
At first, the manager hates having to take care of the dog and can't keep up with his anime anymore... but then Mafuyu tells him that he'll benefit from living a more normal life, and then Maika comes and brings him cookies that she made for him in exchange for taking care of the dog. Maika has gotten much better at making sweets now, and says she'll continue making sweets for the manager from now on.
The rest of this episode is mostly about Maika and her family. Also the manager has started to get fat from eating so many of Maika's sweets. Kaho and Hideri were just like background characters here, and I don't think Miu even appeared in this episode.
