|Title:||Ai Yori Aoshi|
|Episode:||6: The Way of the House|
|Taeko shows up at the cottage with her bags packed desperately in need of a job and place to live. She just was fired from her last job [image2] as housekeeper so Miyabi [image1] decides to give her a chance. Sadly, Taeko is very clumsy [image3] and despite her efforts to do a good job, she constantly is breaking something. Miyabi has seen enough and decides to fire her. However, Aoi steps in and encourages Taeko [image4] to make one final effort -- to make a dinner. She does and Miyabi relents and lets her stay on.|
Now, the series firmly establishes itself as a harem romantic-comedy. We have the house, lots of babes, and one guy. The romance story between Aoi and Kaoru is placed on hold for the most part other than brief acknowledgements. And Tina was back with more of her breast-grabbing manuevers. So is the series a sweet romantic comedy or a fan-service fest?

Another inhabitant is moving in, and this time it is Aoi who supports Taeko with all she can - maybe because Taeko's background is so similar to Kaoru's?
Still no first kiss of our couple, although it was really close this time [image5].
And I do like that closing scene [image6] when Miyabi shows that she is still in control - but willing to let them pass this time... these scenes are what make Miyabi-san my favourite of this series.
