In chapter 21, Nana is feeling down after learning Mea's "true nature" and rito tries to cheer her up.
The special chapter features part 1 of a story where Rito is turned into Mikan's panties.
Rito's hug solves all.
Chapter 21 summary:
Nana saw Mea's real form while Mea was battling the alien goons, and Mea told Nana that this was her true nature and her friendship with Nana was all an act. Mea is missing the next day in school. The events got Nana depressed and she locks herself in her room after school. Rito learns of the situation from Momo and decides to go talk to Nana. Rito goes into the Devilukean sister's attic apartment and bumps right into a naked Lala who just finished taking a bath. Rito explains that he is here to talk to Nana and Lala thanks Rito for doing this. Lala tells Rito Nana is probably in her virtual zoo.
Rito steps into Nana's room and finds it to be empty, but then he spots the portal. Rito steps through and is transported to a grassy outdoor area where Nana keeps her animals. Rito gets chased by a dragon but is saved by Nana who tells the dragon that Rito isn't food. After showing Rito around for a bit, Nana gets down to the subject and she starts getting teary and emotional over Mea telling her that their friendship was all an act. Nana is hurt and doesn't want to deal with it anymore, but Rito gives her a hug and states that he knows that deep down inside, Mea is lonely and unsure and wants this friendship was well (from the time when Mea was controlling Rito last chapter). Rito encourages Nana to talk to Mea again so they can form a real friendship this time.
Later, Nana and Momo take a bath together and Nana declares her intentions to open talks with Mea again. Nana then reveals that Rito had hugged her, and out of jealousy Momo starts teasing Nana's tail. Nana retaliates by grabbing Momo's tail and the two starting fooling around. Outside, Lala can tell by the sounds that Nana's spirits is back up again.
This can't be good for Rito... or maybe it's great for Rito depending on your stand point.
Special chapter summary:
Mea and Rito notice that Mikan has been uncharacteristically clumsy lately, and they wonder if there is something on Mikan's mind that she's keepint to herself. Rito makes an offhand comment about following Mikan to school to find out what troubles her, and Momo gets an idea and uses Lala's invention to turn Rito into a pair of panties. Momo places Rito-panties onto Mikan's pile of clothing as Mikan is taking a bath. Mikan put on Rito-panties and goes to school. As Mikan arrives at school, she trips over a stair but Rito instinctively pulls her up. Mikan thought it was a bit strange but then runs into her friends and so Rito manages to stay hidden for now.
The power of Rito's hug lol. Calms any girl right down. Then again, Nana was being really cute when she was crying and hurting, and Rito, being the instinctive pervert, just took advantage of the situation. It was funny that Nana liked it and then Momo got jealous.
While Nana's little emotional issue go resolved, the situation remains that Mea is starting to distance herself and go back into the living weapon shell. I thought the previous chapter's cliffhanger would lead Nana into a bit of danger since Mea hasn't finished off the three goons sent to attack her, but this chapter just skipped to the aftermath. I assume Mea beat down the goons, but I rather to have seen it happen. As Nana, Rito and company struggle to pull Mea to their side, it'll hopefully prompt Nemesis to come out from the shadows.
Moving on to the special chapter, Rito becoming Mikan's panties for the day is just a classic To Love-Ru setup. Rito played the part of Peke/Lala's clothing before, but this might be even worse. Have to wait for the conclusion to see what sort of stuff Rito gets himself into. I'm going to guess that the affects of the transformation will wear off at some inconvenient moment.
