but is foiled by Yotsuya's attempt to play with him. When Souichiro
tears up his underwear he is forced to run away before Kyoko,
who is really worried about him comes out to see what is going on. At
the same time, Godai's grandma comes up to see how Godai is doing
and is picked up by Kyoko at the train station. She tries to cover up
for Godai about his exams but the loon squad does a good job in telling
her the truth. Grandma then says that Godai has to pass the last test
because they can't support him if he doesn't do anything productive.
Finally, Kyoko and Grandma spot Godai at the posting of the test scores

right beside him is a young girl, who is Kyoko's niece: Ikuko.
Trying to make a good impression, Godai offers to entertain Ikuko
while Kyoko and Mr.Otonashi talk in her room. The reason for this
visit is a special one: it is time to visit the graveyard to pay
respects. Godai goes along with them when he offers to give
Mr.Otonashi (who has a back problem) a supporting shoulder to walk
with. At the graveyard, as they take turns offering a prayer in
front of the Otonashi's family gravestone, Godai asks Mr.Otonashi
whose grave it is today? He replies, "Kyoko's husband." Godai is
understandably dismayed, for years to come.

by yelling at the top of his lungs to the entire area on top of a
garbage bag. Kyoko then comes down to stop him, but Godai drunkenly
grabs her and carries her back to his room before passing out. The
next day, everyone tells him that he slept with Kyoko but wasn't able
to finish. Kyoko ignores all attempts to talk to him. Finally, he
confronts her and says that it was all a joke. Unfortunately,
Kyoko takes this to mean that Godai's expression of love was a joke.

the tennis coach with the gleaming smile. To Godai's horror, they all
decide to meet together at the cafe. The gang start talking about Godai's
display of affection in episode 8, and Kyoko tries to verify that Godai
was really joking with her. Godai tells her that he wasn't which surprises
her. Finally, as they all start walking to Ikkoku-kan, Mitaka learns
that Kyoko doesn't want to start anything for a while. He replies by
saying that he's a patient person, and that he can wait.

enjoying seeing other people get upset.

somebody tell you he loves you?

be disturbed when he finds Soichiro among the passengers... When they
arrive at the beach, Godai is able to use the dog to keep Mitaka away

of girls who want him to help out with the puppet club at the university.
To Kyoko's dismay, he suddenly begins to receive a lot of phone calls from
the girls in the puppet club which
she has to answer since the phone is in her room. It seems as if Godai
has become extremely popular especially with people like Kozue coincidentally
phoning in to talk to him. Kyoko gets really annoyed with the whole thing
and gets a public phone installed in the apartment. Godai sees this, and
while Kyoko is steaming from the whole incident, gives her a call from

days making. However, Godai manages to find something to give her. At

of Yotsuya. He tells her that her mother was here... Kyoko leaves
in fury. At ChaChaMaru, Godai and Ichinose drown their sorrows.
Both are distraught over losing Kyoko. Akemi seems not to be so
worried. Yotsuya arrives, bringing with him a parting gift from
Kyoko, so it would seem. Later that night, they are sitting in
Kyoko's empty room, when she herself arrives. Much to their relief,
she tells them that it was all just a trick of her mother. That's
not the end of it though. Ritsuko tries yet again to make Kyoko

that Kyoko's dad is very ill and needs his daughter to be with him.
25) Crash! Godai vs Mitaka Proposal Battle
At the tennis club, Godai stands outside the fence looking in, until he
happens to get invited to play a game of doubles with Kyoko. Ichinose
gets paired with Mitaka to even out the teams. However, the game is
disrupted when in the middle of an exchange at the net, Mitaka proposes
to Kyoko. She seemingly misinterprets the question and manages to avoid
saying what he hoped. Not one to give up, the next day Mitaka takes
Kyoko for a drive to the beach. Meanwhile, Godai admires the food at
a store display. As luck would have it, Kozue is nearby, and notices him
there. She invites him over for dinner. There, he gets more acquainted
with her family, and he unfortunately leaves the impression that he may
be more serious about Kozue than he really is...

As Godai finishes his tutoring session with Ikuko, Grandpa Otonashi
gives him a package to give to Kyoko. Walking home, Godai peeks
inside the paper bag and learns to his chagrin that it's Soichiro's
diary. His fears are realized when he sees Kyoko's look of shock
upon receiving the diary. Over the next few days, Kyoko reads the

38) Godai-kun's lost love? Kozue approaching Mitaka?
After all this time, Kozue is starting to worry that her relationship
with Godai is going nowhere. She finally wonders if he's actually
interested in another woman... Mitaka, seeing a way to hinder Godai,
ends up trying to help Kozue. Yotsuya notices that Mitaka is seeing
Kozue and, at the usual gathering in Godai's room, they misinterpret
this to mean that Mitaka is dating Kozue now. Despite everything,
Godai doesn't want to let Mitaka have her, so he tries to get Kozue
back. And he does.

Everybody is set for the party at Chachamaru's, except for Godai.

Kyoko leaves them, and writes a goodbye message in the snow for Godai
and Mitaka to see when they look out their windows. The day comes
when both guys are able to leave the hospital. But Kyoko is still
giving the cold shoulder. After meeting by chance at the hospital
check-up, Godai and Mitaka end up drinking together and complaining
44) Kentaro-kun in shock. Who really is Yotsuya?
In trouble with his mother, Kentaro hides in the attic. By chance,
he discovers a photo album with the terrifying evidence about
Yotsuya's true nature: there are photos of Yotsuya dating back to
pre-WW2, and he looks no different now than he did fifty years
ago... But what is he, really? Kentaro asks the others for help
to spy on Yotsuya. They start to wonder: what is Yotsuya's real
job? and is "Yotsuya" his only name? Come to think of it, he gives
a different name every time he's asked. Godai ends up trying to
follow Yotsuya to work. Kyoko dons a disguise to spy on him in
town. And Kentaro wets his bed...
47) Kyoko in a mess. Drunk and Crazy.
During the last week of spring break, Godai and Sakamoto take to
working at a licensed restaurant, and Sakamoto stays at Godai's
apartment. They invite Kyoko to visit them at the restaurant and have
something on the house. Of course, the other residents of Ikkoku-kan
just have to come along and make his life more colorful. The loon
squad's antics almost get Godai fired, as they tease him mercilessly
while he works. Meanwhile, Kyoko seethes at his timidness against the
onslaught. As the evening progresses, with not a little help from the
others, Kyoko gets more and more drunk. The restaurant is almost closed
for the night, but the gang are still ordering more food and drink.
Kyoko gets up and calls for Godai to meet with her at the back. She
starts to berate him, but ends up running to the washroom, unable to
keep her dinner down... Afterwards, the whole gang walks home. Godai
gets the privilege of carrying Kyoko (having passed out) piggyback.
Unfortunately, she discovers that Godai paid for everyone's dinner, and
rewards him with a firm grip around his neck.

Ritsuko - Young man, do you have a steady?
Godai - No, I don't but... I'm in love with somebody.
(Kyoko opens her eyes)
Ritsuko - Oh! Then it's a one side affair, isn't it?
(Godai stares at table)
Ritsuko - What kind of lady is she?
Kyoko - Mom, don't be so nosy!
Godai - She's got long hair... so gentle. She's two years older than me...
but she's so adorable. Or how should I put it?
Godai - I hope Kyoko-san understood me. I bet she did.
Kyoko - Godai-san, don't surprise me. I'm... I'm still not...
... but thank you.
51) Even Yotsuya-san is Shocked. The Day Ikkoku-kan Disappears!?
Is Ikkoku-kan really to be torn down? Grandpa Otonashi is out of town,
so they can't confirm or deny the rumor. Mitsukoshi is the new guy, so
some of the residents suspect him to have a part in this. They try to
investigate him. Godai even asks Mitaka for help. Could Mitsukoshi be
working at a real-estate firm...? Eventually, Kyoko decides to confront
him directly: he says that he's only a client of the agency. In the
morning, a telegram arrives for Mitsukoshi. Everybody gathers around the
door to room #3, because Mitsukoshi is not answering. Kyoko resorts to
using her master-key and they discover that he's no longer around, and
his room is empty, except for a small gift.

At the annual visit to Soichiro's grave with her parents and some
members of the Otonashi family, Kyoko finds herself wondering whether
her mother will start asking her whether she'll be remarrying. Kyoko
then become more worried when she realizes that lately she's been
thinking less and less about Soichiro. Is she forgetting him, or just
naturally letting go...? When she goes to visit his grave alone,
Yotsuya hints to Godai that she might be considering suicide. Godai
rushes off to the cemetary, and ends up getting there before her,
which gives him the chance to hide nearby and eavesdrop on her
59) Asuna Kujou's first time
Kyoko worries about Mitaka's failure to show up for their important
meeting at the cafe. He did want to hear her answer to his marriage
proposal, didn't he? Meanwhile, Godai gets an idea from one of the
kids at the daycare: a little girl named Kyoko gave him a love-letter
on audio cassette, so maybe he could do the same... Mitaka drives to
the beach with Asuna, and he tries to tell her that she'd be better
off with someone else. However, her dogs have followed them, and
Mitaka ends up trapped in his car, clutching Asuna with fear.
61) Chase after me, Godai-san. Kyoko's lone trip
Kyoko decides to go on a trip to take her mind off troubling matters.
She leaves without saying goodbye to Godai. However, he soon
discovers that she's gone. He pulls off the trip schedule that Kyoko
left on her door and hurries to the train station, hoping to catch
her. He searches for her at a historical village, but manages to
avoid finding her, even though she's nearby. Kyoko happens to meet a
woman who is depressed because she recently broke up with her
boyfriend. Meanwhile, Godai tries waiting outside the hotel where
Kyoko should be staying. Unfortunately a policeman drags him away for
loitering. The next day, Godai sees Kyoko get on a tour bus, and the
64) Godai-kun on the edge! Sweet trap of high school girl
As the tutoring of Yagami continues, she becomes more and more annoyed
at Kyoko's interference. So she invites Godai to her own home for the
final "lesson". A week later, Godai is there, and discovers to his
chagrin that her parents aren't home. Fortunately, before things get
out of hand, Yagami's parent come back. Unfortunately, they have come
back from the wedding of a friend's daughter, and Yagami's father is not
in a good mood, especially concerning men who would try to take
advantage of his own daughter-- and they aren't supposed to know that
Godai is tutoring her! Godai hides in the closet, while Yagami tries to
retrieve his shoes. Her mother finds him anyway, but is sympathetic to
his plight. He leaves through the window, but forgets to take his shoes
anyway. Crashing through the bushes, he makes it back to Ikkoku-kan in
a frightful mess.
67) Even Yagami is confused! Grandma Yukari returns with golden teeth!!
Godai quits his part-time job at the nursery so that he can devote
more time to looking for a full-time job. Unfortunately, he finds
that it is not easy for a student of a third-rate college
(especially with poor grades) to find a job at a major company.
Furthermore, he doesn't have the connections to help get in (except
maybe Yagami...). Kozue appears and lets Godai know that she just
got a job at a bank, thanks to her father's connections. Godai's
grandma visits, and she happens to meet Yagami.
66) Yagami's challenge! I musn't lose against the widow!
Foiled by Kyoko's tattling, Yagami studies ceaselessly to regain her
position as the best student in her class. All so that she can go back
to visiting Godai at Ikkoku-kan. However, on her first return visit,
she suddenly falls asleep from exhaustion, and happens to fall into
Godai's arms. Yotsuya is back to tutoring Yagami, in Godai's room.
Kyoko brings tea and cake, but Yagami opposes her and, as Godai watches,
she demands that Kyoko be clear about her true intentions with Godai.
Kyoko simply runs out of the room without saying a word. Later, when
Yagami tells Kamiogi-sensei about Kyoko, she tells Yagami that Kyoko is
someone who "believes only one truth exists, and if she confessed that
she loved Godai, then her love for Soichiro would have been a lie."
Hearing this Yagami feels sorry for Kyoko and decides to be nicer to
her. She changes her mind, though, when she arrives at Ikkoku-kan and
sees Kyoko on the street. Yagami runs past, calling Kyoko a coward.

Godai and Sakamoto are still searching for a job. Yagami is still
trying to get her father to give Godai a letter of recommendation.
For a time, Godai is occupied with organizing the sports-day events
for a nursery. Seeing how good Godai is with the children, one of
the workers at the nursery suggests that he try to get a full-time
job at the nursery. All seems well, until one day Yagami arrives at
Ikkoku-kan with a letter of recommendation.
79) I'm sorry Kyoko-san. Guilt trip homemade lunch
Godai decides to quit his job at the Cabaret and become a full-time
daycare worker. Unfortunately, the daycare manager lets go of Godai
first (the job was a temporary position from the start). Now Godai can't
afford to quit the Cabaret because the party posse have been running up a
large tab at his expense, blackmailing Godai because he's too spineless
to let Kyoko know about this job. Kyoko has started making box-lunches
for Godai. In the morning, just after the nursery lays off Godai, Kyoko
knocks on his door, wondering why he isn't getting up for work. He
almost tells her what happened, but when he sees the lunch Kyoko has
made for him, he just can't say it.
83) Yokohama Chaser. Kyoko-san's Going Away?!
Kyoko is ready to go out for lunch with her parents, but is confused
when Mitaka arrives to escort her. She learns that not only will her
parents be there, but so will Mitaka's parents! Arriving at the hotel,
they also discover that another unexpected guest has come along,
sneaking into Mitaka's car before they left Ikkoku-kan: Kasumi's son,
Taro. Kyoko calls home to tell Godai about Taro, and her tone of voice
hints at a more serious problem for Godai. He rushes off to the hotel,
bringing Hanako along (since nobody else at Ikkoku-kan is conscious
enough to look after her). There, Godai finds Taro but looks on
helplessly as Mitaka drives away with Kyoko to Yokohama. That evening,
during dinner, he tells her that he's arranged a room for them at this
84) 1000% suspicion. Kyoko's scandal night
Worrying about Kyoko, Godai sits at the entrance of Ikkoku-kan. When
Kyoko's father arrives in his car, he is shocked when Godai tells him
that she left with Mitaka. The two men leave to search for her, before
anything irrevocable might happen... In the restaurant, Mitaka sees
Kyoko's unease, and suggests a walk outside. At the waterfront, Kyoko
finally speaks up, and tearfully apologizes to Mitaka for letting this
relationship drag on for so long. Meanwhile, Godai and Mr.Chigusa give
up their search as dawn approaches. They arrive home, and find Kyoko
sitting on the front-steps. Later, Kyoko tries to explain to Godai that
"nothing happened" with Mitaka that night. However, that problem is set
aside when Kasumi finally comes back to take her children home.
86) Shocking one night! Asuna's Salad day.
Mitaka arrives at his apartment, and finds Asuna and Salad (her dog),
waiting at the door. Drunk and falling asleep, he ends up falling on
top of her, inadvertantly kissing her as they fall to the floor. The
next morning, Mitaka wakes up in bed, with his clothes changed and
breakfast waiting in the kitchen. He wonders what happened. Then
remembers that Asuna was here... but she's gone now. Godai decides to
stay for the next few days and nights at the cabaret where he works,
so that he can study for the exams. It would probably be less
distracting there than at Ikkoku-kan.
89) Unrequited love! Godai and Kyoko, it's over today?
Kyoko is in shock after seeing Kozue kiss Godai. Goida returns to
Ikkoku-kan after his exams are over. Before he leaves, the manager of
the cabaret warns him that he's not good enough to handle two women at
the same time. Godai has no idea why Kyoko seems to be mad at him.
Kozue calls to ask Godai out for lunch. There, he finds out that another
man proposed to her, but she doesn't know what Godai's feelings are. He
tells her that when he graduates, he wants to propose to a lady (Kyoko)
but Kozue misinterprets this to be her and decides to turn the other guy
down. He walks home stunned. He explains what happened to Kyoko after
she brings up the kiss and realizes how stupid he was. Surprising Godai,
she kisses him. Godai tries to figure out how to tell Kozue the truth,
but before he could, she barges into a New year's Party and cries out
that Godai proposed to him. Kyoko's furious, slaps him, and then tells
Godai to move out. He refuses. Kyoko decides to move out.
Kyoko - Close your eyes. Did you think I was going to kiss you?
Godai - that's...
Kyoko - Turn around. It's alright, just stand back-to-back.
Godai - OK.
Kyoko - Now close your eyes.
(Kyoko takes off slippers, walks up to Godai and kisses him)
Kyoko - You're right, you are gulliable.
(Kyoko walks away.)
Godai - (stunned) Yes!
90) Kyoko-san quitting! Ikkoku-kan's memory far away?
Kyoko's gone after the previous night's fiasco. He explains what
happened to the loon squad and they force Godai to go get Kyoko back.
Kyoko is moping at her parent's place. She exclaims that she'll never
get married. Her mom then realizes that it's not Mitaka she's moping
over, but another guy. Godai shows up, but Kyoko tells her mom not to
let him in. He yells out to her what really happened, but Kyoko throws a
pillow at him and forces him out. Being back home of course, makes her
dad extremely happy. Godai keeps coming back to try to get Kyoko but she
remains stubborn. Meanwhile, the apartment is turning into a mess.
Godai is put in charge of the apartment after her dad convinces Otonashi
that Kyoko isn't coming back.
Ritsuko - Kyoko... Was that the man you like?...
Kyoko - You have to be kidding.. He's an irresponsible clod.
Ritsuko - What was his name?
Kyoko - Godai! Can't you remember?!
Ritsuko - I'd better remember that...
91) Kyoko in shock! Akemi and Godai's unexpected relation!
Kyoko's upset at her dad for telling Otonashi that she quit her job.
Meanwhile Godai is trying to clean up quickly to go to Kyoko's but the
loon squad keeps partying and making a mess. Godai kicks them out of the
apartment and they end up partying at Chachamaru where Kyoko
coincidentally ends up at. Akemi tells Kyoko that she's stubborn, and
threatens to seduce Godai to prove her point. Later that night, Godai
receives a call from Akemi who says she's in trouble. When Godai runs to
get her, he realizes that she's in a love hotel. Akemi wakes up and says
she drank too much, the guy left and she needed someone to pay. They walk
out, and a shocked Kozue sees them leaving together. The next morning,
Akemi tells Godai that he should be happy now after she helped split them
up. All attempts to reach Kozue are futile, and Akemi and Ichinose berate
him for trying to prolong the misunderstanding to end everything on a
happy note. Ichinse visits Kyoko to tell her that everything has worked
out and Kyoko finally understands what happened. She decides to return
home, but on the way she meets up with Kozue who tells a shocked Kyoko
that Godai slept with Akemi.
Akemi - You're thinking something like, "Even if we break up,
I want to remain in her heart as a beautiful memory,"
Godai - ...
Godai - That's not it... that's not it at all....
Akemi and Ichinose - (in unison): Ba-ka.
92) Kozue-chan's wedding! Godai's love is forever?!
A shocked Kyoko ends up at Chachamaru where she sees Akemi. Akemi tells
Kyoko the truth, that she did walk out of the hotel with Godai. When
Godai and company walk in, she tells him tha she hates him. Akemi
explains to Master that even if she said nothing happened, she is so
jealous that wouldn't believe her. Kyoko becomes irrational, and accuses
Godai of sleeping around. Godai pats her gently on the cheek, and she
runs out. Godai chases after her to return her jacket. He explains to her
that Kyoko keeps forgetting one thing - that he loves her, always and
forever. Later, Kozue meets Yotsuya on the train and learns the truth
about the hotel. She comes to the cabaret to apologize, and Godai decides
to apologize first, saying that he already has a woman he loves in his
life. Kozue is relieved, because she already accepted another man's
proposal. They part on a happy note.
Akemi - You should see your face. Quarreling that badly with a man
you wouldn't even let hold your hand. What's the matter with you?
Kyoko - Are you saying it's my fault?
Godai - No, it's just... It's just that, Kyoko-san...
You're forgetting something important.
Kyoko - Something? And what's that?
Godai - My feelings. I love you. I love you Kyoko-san.
Ever since we first met, and now and forever after.
Kozue - What kind of woman is she?
Godai - (reflecting on her question)
Kozue-chan... the woman I love is... jealous, cries and gets mad a
lot... but when she smiles, I feel the best...
93) Sight of spring? The two's hearts are in warm feeling!!
Godai - I'm always worried, when I think about you and Souichiro-san.
I don't know what to do anymore.
Kyoko - I'm sorry. Please, just think about me.
94) Alright! Godai-kun's courageous proposal!
Godai - No... He's just worried about you... To your
father, you're still a little girl, aren't you?
Kyoko - Kyoko-chan... eh?
Godai - But to me... you're the only woman...
Please, will you marry me?
Godai - I promise... I won't do anything to make you
cry. So, please, spend the rest of your life
Kyoko - Will you promise me one thing, then?
Godai - Yes.
Kyoko - Please, even if by just one day more, live
longer than me... Because... I don't think I
could continue on by myself...
95) Ah, Excitement! Grandma's love embosomed in the ring
Godai decides that it's time for Kyoko to finally meet his parents.
A bit nervously, he phones home (his parents don't know about Kyoko
yet). His grandma helps things along by inviting them to come over
(to Nigata Prefecture) right away: tomorrow. They take the train,
and then taxi to the restaurant (and home) where Godai's Grandma
and parents live. Later that evening, Grandma loans some money to
Godai so that he can afford the wedding; then she gives an
engagement ring to Kyoko: "When I was young, Grandpa gave this ring
to me..." With the snow falling outside, all is well. Then there
is a knock at the door downstairs. Godai goes to answer, and it's
none other than Yotsuya, Akemi and Ichinose! So much for a quiet
(Grandma Yukari gives Godai her bankbook)
Godai - I'll give you the best funeral ever, grandma!
96) As long as this love lasts! Ikkoku-kan is forever...!!
Kyoko - Haruka-chan, welcome to our home. This is the place... where papa and
mama met for the very first time...
