"Attack of the Lady Manager!" (女子マネージャー襲来 "Joshi Manējā Shūrai" ) is the fourth episode in the series.
The Host Club must deal with their new self-asserted manageress, Renge, a French otaku who claims to be Kyoya's fiancée. Renge has an overt obsession with video games, anime, manga, and cosplaying. She decides to make a movie for the host club, coming up with "parts" for them, such as Tamaki's "lonely prince" act and Honey's "evil on the inside" act. She gathers two yakuza (mafia) to play villains for the host club's "final fight," apparently a scheme where they band together to fight them. Haruhi attempts to protect Renge from their meager attacks, dislodging her contact in the process, causing her to appear to be crying in pain. Tamaki hurries over, angry at the thought some one has hurt her, only to find out that it was her contact that fell out. Haruhi finally helps Renge understand that there's more than stereotypes, and Renge immediately switches crushes from Kyoya to Haruhi.
