Hanasaku Iroha 1x2
Vengeance is a Staff Meal
Sui instructs Nako to train Ohana to become a housekeeper, though she is quite shy about it. When Nako has to attend to another duty, Ohana, having been taught to only rely on herself, she cleans another room where the author Tarō Jirōmaru is staying by herself. When the staff's breakfast is cancelled due to an error by Minko in the kitchen, Ohana makes breakfast for everyone, though this only serves to irritate Minko further. Afterwards, Tarō complains that some drafts for his story have gone missing from his room which Ohana had cleaned earlier, having not been informed by Nako beforehand. After Sui instructs the others to go to resume their duties rather than search for the draft, junior chef Tōru Miyagishi takes Ohana to pick up some luggage. As Tōru mocks Ohana's ability to take care of herself, Ohana inadvertedly tells him to 'die' which nearly causes him to crash. Feeling guilty about it and taking a walk to reflect upon herself, Ohana decides to speak her mind against Minko and Nako, wanting to cook them their least favourite foods tomorrow as payback. The next day, Ohana finds some of Tarō's discarded works, which turn out to be erotic stories using her as a character.
