2. Episode 5 Speculation
Ataru is the only one who has seen the Mizunokoji girl’s face. Shutaro and Ton think that the Mizunokoji girl is just a giant piece of armor. Ataru will probably tell Ton that a cute girl is inside the armor, which will make Shutaro eager to marry her.
However, from the reactions of the staff, Mizunokoji has probably never seen a man before. The girl was kept away for many years and is now at marrying age. Therefore, Shutaro will be the first man that Mizunokoji interacts with.
Ryutaro is heavily against Shutaro getting married to someone from the Mizunokoji family. Once the wedding is official, Ryutaro and Ataru will probably try to sabotage it. Both Ryutaro’s and Ataru’s motives are vastly different, though.
