  • Hello Motoko Keitaro

    Yet another girl enters the inn. This time she is a hardcore samurai. In the opening parts of the episode they show her training back at her house. She seems to be great with the sword. Then we see Keitaro and 2 friends try to touch her (Motoko) so she believes him to be a stalker and attacks him. Then later she notices that he is in the inn, which is supposed to be for only girls and she attacks him calling him a perv. Later she finds out that he is the caretaker of the inn and for the rest of the episode she rejects him. Until he saves her life.moreless

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Motoko: Take a good look at your manager, Naru. He cuts peep holes in girl's floors just to get cheap thrills. Do you really think you want some lecherous pervert managing our apartments?
      Keitaro: Grr. Wait, it's a mistake.
      Motoko: You are the mistake.
      Naru: Wait! Motoko, that was already there.
      Motoko: Er, it was?
      Naru: When Grandma Hina used to live downstairs she used it a lot. [Giggles]

    • Mitsune: Is he dead?
      Naru: No, I think he's alive.
      Shinobu: Keitaro, are you alright?
      Kaolla: I bet you could see the whole planet from up there!

    • Mitsune: Oh, this is going to be trouble.
      Shinobu: Well, what are we going to do?
      Kaolla: [To Keitaro] You better watch your backside if you know what's good for you!

    • Mitsune: [To Motoko] Look, I'll make you a deal. If he screws up, we'll kick him out. But until then he stays. Fair?
      Keitaro: Could you define screw up?

    • Motoko: You--breaking into a girls dormitory...
      Keitaro: But I live here!
      Motoko: What an elementary lie.
