Hayate no Gotoku! Cuties Episode 10 aired on June 17th 2013.


At Hakuou Academy, Shiori fixes a tape recorder for Yukiji by replacing the parts with her's which is also broken. Yukiji thanks her and says that Shiori is really a genius. This reminds Shiori of the time when she was a Hakuou student 7 years ago. She never got the top position in the class, though, because the top position always belonged to Maria, who was the student council president at that time.

In a flashback, Shiori came in a hurry to tell Maria that snow was falling. Maria then took out the Kotatsu for warming both of them. Maria was asking about the new club that Shiori started. Shiori answered that she started the Motion Picture Research Club, the predecessor of the The Hakuou Three Amiga's club in the present. The purpose of this club was to record the growth of Maria because Shiori is amazed at how academic and cute Maria is. She showed Maria camera photos for example, but Maria broke it like it was an accident. Maria told Shiori that she can't show her videos. So Shiori changed to start with the sound recording instead. But she had to meet the teacher about her thesis. This left Maria with the sound recorder alone. Maria tried to record her singing, but it ended up that Shiori forgot something and came back. So Maria decided to destroy the sound recorder like it was an accident. But she totally forgot about the tape. Back in the present, Yukiji found that tape and was curious about what the contents were. She trys to play it but gets interrupted by Maria who come out of nowhere. Maria shows that she is the owner of that tape and come to take it back. The fact is she just remember it in time before any of her cute traits in the past were exposed by that tape.

At the Sanzenin Mansion, Maria discovers a love letter for Hayate. However, he wants to turn it down. He asks Maria for advice but discovers that Maria can't help him in this situation. Hayate opens it and finds out that the content looks like the letter of a girl who loves obsessively. He thinks he will reply to her with a gentle letter for refusal. Then Nagi advises him that returning a strict reply to the sender should make an obsessive lover give up. After they come back from putting the reply letter in the post box, a second letter comes to the mansion quickly. The sender replies a horror letter to Hayate which now scares him. Nagi advises Hayate and Maria to go on a fake date in order to drive away the sender.

At the date scenario, Hayate and Maria follow Nagi's script about the dating. But Ayumu meets them accidentally and thinks that they're going out for real and ends up stalking them. Nagi comes to the Violet Mansion to explain about the situation to Sakuya and Isumi. This reveals that the sender is Linn who was bored and used Isumi's stationery to make a prank letter. He gets enraged at seeing Hayate dating Maria and decides to go destroy this date. Nagi's script tells Hayate to try on the girl's clothes even though it's embarrassing. Hinagiku who also came here to see a cute big teddy bear accidentally met Maria with Hayate while Maria tries on a swimsuit. She found Ayumu and both agree to follow Hayate and Maria to make sure about their relationship.

Lastly Hayate and Maria go to an aquarium. Linn tries to get involved by possessing a penguin and plans to do skinship with Maria. But ends up falling into Hayate's arms instead. They run into Ayumu and Hinagiku and they ask if they're really dating, and respond with that it's just their imagination. At sundown, Maria hopes she'll find a boyfriend like Hayate someday.
