Titre original : Usui, Surrounded By the Enemy
On the second day of summer vacation, Nagisa allows her nephew Aoi to cross-dress again should he win the local mixed beach volleyball tournament, where the winning team becomes the Beach Prince and Princess as well. Since Nagisa is ineligible, Misaki, impressed with Aoi’s determination, helps by becoming his partner. But both of them are surprised when Erika and Usui join the tournament. Both teams easily defeat their competition, earning them a face off at the final round. Misaki is frustrated that Usui is her opponent and blurts out her anger much to the crowd’s surprise and her embarrassment. Misaki makes a risky save for the ball, but she’s about to hit the umpire stand when Usui moves in to shield her from the impact. With Usui injured, Aoi and Misaki wins the tournament but the latter skips the victory party to apologize to Usui. At the beach, Usui reveals he joined the tournament to prevent Misaki from becoming the Beach Princess so people wouldn’t exploit her. Misaki is touched, but their kiss is interrupted by a sudden explosion of fireworks. With their vacation over, everyone decides to have a group photo taken.
