Here's my first shot at ever recapping something.
For C and N for telling me a million times each day to read this. =D
Thanks to ANIMEWAVES for the scanlations.
manga series starts off with four boys: Kyohei Takano, Takenaga Oda, Yukinojo "Yuki" Toyama, and Ranmaru Morii, who are informed by a landowner that they can rent a large mansion all for free. There's only one condition: they have to transform her niece into a lady whose manners and personality fit her high status. All four are happy and confident, until they see her. She shows up as a mess: hair uncombed and tangled, with cheap-looking, unfashionable clothes.
Takano, seemingly the most demanding (and good-looking) of the four, offers on cutting her long bangs, which are covering almost half her face, off. She immediately responds, telling him to back off and leave her bangs alone. Takano is infuriated with her attitude as the others comment on how she looks like she came from a horror film. (Apparently, you guys have not seen the really gory ones.)
We find out, however, that the reason she doesn't want to chop off her bangs is because she doesn't want anyone to see her (what she calls) ugly face. The next morning, the boys, except Takano, ponder over how to approach this unexpected outcome (they were hoping for a normal girl).
The niece, whose name is Sunako Nakahara, tries to avoid them, and she hides in a room. She soon realizes that the room is Takano's, after he comes out from the shower, wearing only a pair of pants. She begins to tremble, telling him to stay away.
He yells at her again. This time he exclaims, "The only reason we put up with your antics is because we get to slack off on our rent!" (Way to boost the insecure girl's confidence, Takano. I think you need a chill pill.) One of the boys (I can't tell apart the other three yet, sorry) asks her if she hates men. She answers that that's not the case.
Later, she decides to leave, desperate to be alone. She runs into a park, trips, and have some awful guys laughing and not even bothering to help her. (Jerks.)
Takano suddenly shows up, calling her stupid for running away just 'cause he got angry. He picks her hand up, motioning for her to get up and that she shouldn't be running out alone. As they walk together, with him still holding onto her wrist, a bunch of bystanders question why such a good-looking guy is hanging out with such an ugly girl. (I say, what the heck does that have to do with you? Mind your own business!)
Later on, Takano starts to cook. He's unsuccessful; accidentally cutting his fingers twice. Soon, Sunako takes over as the boys watch fearfully (she seems scarier with the knife and the "horror-movie look").
The boys eat the incredibly delicious food gratefully (mind you, everyone but Tanako uses their chopsticks. Is it too delicious, Mr. Demanding?) and then Ranmaru, the playboy one, takes a rubber band. He wants to push her hair back, curious to see the look of her face. She steps back, and he comes closer, until he is on top of her (literally). She accidentally trips over a bag of flour, and taking the flour off her hair, she unveils her face. And unexpectedly, she is actually very beautiful. The boys stare in amazement.
She immediately wipes off the flour with a towel, and then her eye bags, pimples, chapped lips and some facial hair become visible. The guys are taken aback at the changes and she immediately covers her face again. (with her hair, not the flour.)
Later on, they see her and this time, she has worn sunglasses, a medical mask, and a large hood. The landlady suddenly calls to check on the progress, and Ranmaru dishonestly reassures her that everything is proceeding excellently as the other guys watch with worry and shock.
Then, they all simultaneously stare at Sunako with watery eyes, wondering how they'll ever advance with a girl like her.
.....End of Chapter......
Thoughts: One of the things I'm really curious of is why Sunako is like this. I'm pretty sure that she's really a gorgeous girl and she's also the heiress of a humongous estate, so what brought her to this insecure state?
Things seem to be heading to Tanako as Sunako's leading man. My only hope is that he softens up a bit. (ok, A LOT.)
