File 1: "Assignment: Bokuto Police Station Traffic Section"
OP: "Starting Up" (Performed by Julia Matsuda)
ED: "Blooming Days" (Performed by Takako Shirai)
-It's cherry blossom festival time & a very familiar girl has come to Bokuto Station: It's Saori Saga, newly graduated from the police academy & joining the traffic section today as their newest officer. Time to report in but where is everybody? The squad room is in a bit of a mess so Saori makes herself useful until they all return...
-The morning patrol must have been pretty rough for Ken, Miyuki, Natsumi, Yoriko & Aoi to come dragging in like that. Hi Saori & thanks for tidying up the office-Hey, where's my stuff? Why is my computer turned off?
-After formally introducing Saori to the traffic section, the Chief assigns Miyuki & Natsumi to mentor her during her first few days at Bokuto & also reminds everyone to be on their toes since traffic is more congested than usual during cherry blossom festival time. Also, there will be another cherry blossom viewing party later so all are invited to come if they have free time. Wait a minute-"Another" party?
-While on patrol, Saori learns from Miyuki & Natsumi what the Chief meant by "Another party": They've been trying to have one for at least the past 2 days but it keeps getting put off since they have very little free time these days. Toukairin has reserved their spot for viewing at Bokuto Park so hopefully they can have the viewing party today. Saori has heard enough & on a stop to cite an illegally parked car she shows how gung-ho she is (Even scaring off some drivers from even THINKING about parking illegally).
-Some of the officers back at the station have had enough as well & have assigned Yoriko & Aoi to be their advance squad to make this viewing party come off TODAY, no matter what! They get to the park but a pickpocket swipes the supply money from Yoriko's pocket!
-As the last of the illegally parked cars is about to be towed off, Miyuki & Natumi are joined by Oshou who remarks on the new rookie with them (Who's still arguing with one of the violators). Our pickpocket shows up & with Miyuki, Natsumi & Saori on one side & now Yoriko & Aoi on the other looking for him, he gets desperate & grabs the tow truck! Don't worry, Saori-We'll catch him!
-Oh no, traffic congestion blocking our way! Clear us a path, Natsumi! Unfortunately, the Chief's car was in the way too but it can't be helped-That pickpocket must be caught!
--The dispatchers send all available units to the East Mukojima Block 1 intersection to cut the thief off. Meanwhile, after having to use Natsumi's feet brake to avoid a collision with a scooter Miyuki heads off to cut off the tow truck while Natsumi pursues him on her Motocompo. Once they catch up Miyuki takes out one of her paint guns & aims...Saori, take the wheel & don't slow down! Even Miyuki's paint gun shots won't slow this guy down-What's with him?
-The pickpocket finally turns onto the bridge but it's still under construction with a wide gap that he has no chance of crossing! He barely stops in time but the truck goes over the edge...Thank goodness for Natsumi's saving him in time!
-And finally, what everyone's been waiting for...The cherry blossom viewing party (After accident cleanup of course ;))!
Next time-File 2, " The Formula to a Successful Social"
File 2: "The Formula for a Successful Social"
-We open with Miyuki, Natsumi & Saori detouring traffic at a bridge exit and while Miyuki issues a citation to a driver for not wearing his seatbelt (With some friendly persuasion by Natsumi), Saori goes toe-to-toe with Scooter Mama over her wanting to ride over the bridge (Scooters are prohibited from the bridge). It might be better if you don't block traffic while arguing, don't you think?
-Yoriko's last social didn't go so well, eh? She's planned another one with "Media types" as the theme & already a couple of other female cops want in on it. Meanwhile, you didn't need to be so gung-ho about Scooter Mama, Saori-Take it a little easier, will you?
-Yoriko needs 1 more for the social & since Miyuki, Natsumi & Saori are all busy that leaves...Aoi?
-Back on patrol...What, you didn't know that Natsumi has a boyfriend, Saori? Meanwhile, a truck driver's load has spilled, causing a backup-Let's help him reload his truck before you cite him, Saori! BTW, the driver's name is Calros Rossi (Carlos?) & he also needs directions to a place he's moving to since he's new here in Japan. Of course we'll help!
-Moving-in soba as thanks? Don't mind if we do-C'mon Saori, it won't hurt to have some & if anything happens, we'll be notified!
-Some late info from the Chief: Be aware that several women have been robbed over the past few days with the robber stealing the woman's valuables while she's drunk. Ok, ok Saori, we get it-The officers here have become too lax & need to get with it! And please, DON'T go to the Chief of Police-Too many salaries depend on it!
-Yoriko, Aoi & a couple of others are off to the social while Saori stays to work overtime...An arson call? Saori's the only one there so she answers the call. Oh BTW, that guy on the rappelling rope outside the window is Lt. Toukairin-Could you watch the office while I answer the call?
-A quick drive to the scene finds that it's only Calros & his friend burning some trash but the fire department's not too keen on them doing that. Meanwhile, Miyuki & Natsumi return from patrol only to find Toukairin watching the office. He & Natsumi were supposed to go out for dinner anyway so Miyuki volunteers to finish up so that they can go. After they leave, Miyuki is startled by Ken's sudden appearance & stumbles on a chair, Ken tries to catch her before she falls and...Well...No Saori, it's not what you think!
-Yoriko's social last night was a bust, not because the men were zeroes (They weren't-All handsome & well-dressed) but because they all gravitated to Aoi! Maybe Saori should go to at least experience a social one time...But how to get her to go? Miyuki & Natsumi are coming too since Yoriko included them in her headcount for the next social (Elite businessmen working for foreign corporations). An undercover investigation-Saori will go for that!
-Toukairin, doesn't it bother you that Natsumi is going to a social?? So you trust her, huh...Never mind the J-League tickets! We're going too!
-How about this? Turns out the elite businessmen are Calros & his friends!
BTW, Saori gets drunk pretty easily, doesn't she?
-We had a nice time, didn't we? Wait-Where's Saori? She slipped out some time ago & is at a bar where a nice-looking young man has been buying her drinks-The thief that the Chief said to be on the lookout for! As the others look for her, the thief finally gets Saori alone in a park where he turns off her cell & grabs her wallet-But Saori won't let him leave! Calros & his friends find Saori first & keep the thief from getting away until the others arrive.
-You know, at times Ken can be really cool...Nice throw, Ken! And yes, the guy that was with Saori was the serial thief. Nice work, Saori! Want to come on another social?
Next time-File 3, "Dragnet for the Beast of Tokyo"
File 3: "Dragnet for the Beast of Tokyo"
-Early morning along the riverfront finds a paperboy on his route...What was that???
-Later on, Ken buys a bagel sandwich for Natsumi & after visiting with the kindergarten kids heads back to Bokuto Station but then...What the? A monkey? Not only does he make Ken lose control of his bike but he also makes off with Natsumi's sandwich! Apparently this stray monkey has been creating a nuisance in the area for the past month or so. What do you think, Toukairin? And what's in the envelope?
-Easy, Miyuki-Ken's OK! Can't say the same for your sandwich, Natsumi-This must be some sandwich indeed for you to get so worked up about it! BTW, what's so interesting in the mag you're reading, Yoriko?
-According to the Chief, there have been several reports of a strange animal appearing along the river so they are to assist Community Affairs in stepped-up patrols. OK ok, Natsumi-It's the monkey & yes, watch out for it & patrol the waterfront.
-One more try for the bagel sandwich (Plus some cheesecake) for Natsumi before going on patrol...Hey, that monkey snatched my food again! Come back here!
Meanwhile, Toukairin's helping an elderly couple find their cat Tama who's been frightened by that same monkey-Good job! A lot better than Natsumi vs the monkey, that's for sure!
-Leave it to Yoriko to turn the search for this mysterious animal into a possible moneymaking scheme. ;) And judging by the number of strays Toukairin brought in, the idea of putting yourself in the animal's place does seem to work better than blindly chasing it, eh Natsumi? Also, we find out what was in that envelope-Toukairin's been re-assigned to the Mountain Police & will be leaving sometime next month.
-Some late night training for Toukairin (As always) but when he climbs back up to the station roof he finds a visitor in his tent...The stray monkey! And before long, they become buddies! Sorta reminds you of Natsumi, eh Toukairin?
-Yoriko & Aoi try searching the river again with no results...Wait, there's the UMA! Catch it, Saori! Oh, it's only a stuffed toy...Too bad, Yoriko! Plus, you're about to get a lot of help!
-So you think you'll catch the monkey this time, Natsumi? At least you got the right idea by thinking like her but she grabbed your food again! No worries though-Miyuki tagged the monkey with a tracker so they can follow & catch up with her this time (With help from Ken & Toukairin) at the Kinshi Bridge.
-Man, Natsumi's really determined to catch the monkey, isn't she? First on her Motocompo, then she chases it up onto the railway just as a train is approaching!
Like I said before in season 1, Toukairin's some guy, isn't he? ;)
-Well, one of these animals might be an UMA...Who knows, you might get at least 100,000 yen for them, right? And Natsumi finally gets her sandwich thanks to Toukairin...And yes, he named the monkey after you so be nice & share it with her, OK?
Next time-File 4, "24 Hour Cyber Police"
File 4: "24 Hour Cyber Police"
-Morning at Bokuto Station finds 5 semi tractor-trailer trucks pulling up in the parking lot with several boxes of equipment. Natsumi, you said that the Chief mentioned this-What's going on?
-Here's what's up: At Chief Inspector Arizuka's direction Bokuto Station will as of today become the force's first IT police station complete with robots, reports to be filed entirely by computer (Paperless) , even a station website with Yoriko as the webmaster! Also the police box attached to the station now has a remote 2-way monitor for dispatchers to answer questions for citizens 24 hours per day (The kindergarten kids mistake it for a video game at first). Even the patrol cars are now equipped with voice-activated navigation systems that even give the day's schedule. Sounds pretty cool, doesn't it?
-Most of this is easier for some more than others, eh Tokuno & Ken? And BTW, it's the "Shift" key & not the "Shaft" key! At least the Chief seems to have the hang of it, though.
-Even the cafeteria is a part of this with a robot (Beopo, the menu robot) stationed outside the door that gives healthy choices for eating. It recommends spicy cod roe spaghetti & seaweed salad for Natsumi? Not good!
-Yoriko in a maid outfit & Aoi with an actual HOT female body? It's amazing what you can do with the equivalent of Photoshop-Give it a try, Ken! You too, Toukairin! Just keep this a secret, huh?
-Natsumi's breasts really aren't that big, Toukairin? How would you know that, eh? In a dream? Yeah, riiight...
Ken, don't let Miyuki get a look at this-Oops, too late!
-Only one thing to do to get back in Miyuki's good graces, Ken: Show her that you can master this IT stuff!
-Some feedback now: While on patrol Miyuki disregards the nav system & takes an alternate route (Then disconnects it after returning to the station), the kids have a little fun with the police box monitor screen (Which Saori can't see-Lucky her) & Round 2 between Natsumi & Beopo that comes to a "shocking" end! A freshly cooked lunch from Toukarin cures all woes, doesn't it?
-Miyuki still won't accept your apology, Ken? Oh wait-An e-mail! Let's see-To open it you do this and...
-Miyuki left in a big hurry, huh? We'll just track her PHS (Personal Handheld System with built in GPS)-What, she's at Nakajima's place??? And she was there all night???
-Well, not really...She was only there to teach Ken how to use the computer. Sorry, guys!
-Natsumi vs Beopo, Round 3-FIGHT! And this time, total victory with a menu that's more to her liking! However, the Chief...
-No more robots at the station...And yes Natsumi, convenience isn't always the best thing with the jobs that you & the other cops do.
-C'mon Ken, Miyuki's right there with you...SAY IT! Baka!
-On the last day of the IT project, Ken's finally able to send e-mails...And his first is to Miyuki asking her out to dinner!
Her answer...Well, what do you think? ;)
Next time-File 5, "Chase the Ghost Thief Gang!"
File 5: "Chase the Ghost Thief Gang!"
-We open late at night with Ken stopping for a soda while on patrol. A free soda? Lucky!
Wait, what's that sound? A speeder & he's heading for the river-There's nowhere to go for him there & as Ken rounds the corner...NO WAY!
-No one believes Ken's story about the speeder's car disappearing but Yoriko suggests that it might be an evil spirit with some unfinished business. Calm down, Miyuki-Yoriko was just kidding about the glowing car & evil spirits! Even with all this a crime did occur so the Chief wants all patrols to concentrate on finding the getaway car.
-Wow Saori, you're still not used to seeing Toukairin doing his training regimen? BTW, here's a new shortcut to the train station to save you some time going to & from work. Natsumi's meeting Toukairin for a date later & it looks like she's OK about his having to return to Toyama Prefecture soon-Envious, Saori?
-A little window shopping for Toukairin in front of a jewelry store...Hmm, something suspicious about that guy in the glasses...Oh, Natsumi's here! Time for our date!
-A ferry ride, dinner & some news: Toukairin will be leaving for Toyama 1 week from today so let's enjoy our time together, OK?
-Uh oh, a jewelry store was trashed & robbed! This may be connected to the mystery car so the Chief orders increased night patrols to find the thieves. Aoi & Yoriko are the first to encounter the "ghost car"-The pursuit is on! Miyuki, Natsumi, Ken & several other units converge on the car at an intersection but...Disappeared again? How???
-Detective Tokuno has security camera photos of the thieves robbing the store-Apparently they're pros that hit only jewelry stores & don't mind being picked up by surveillance cameras. They've also been using trickery to pull off their "disappearances" with a fake construction site. One of the men in the photos looks very familiar to Toukairin-He saw the guy in front of the jewelry store that he was window shopping at on the day of his date with Natsumi. That store is the thieves' next target!
...BTW, what were you doing in front of that store, Toukairin? Something for Natsumi, maybe? ;)
-That night, the trap is sprung with all but the getaway car driver being caught but he & his buddy won't get far...And yes, we're on to your trick with the empty lot!
-First 4-pointed stars to take out Nakajima's tires then an oil slick to try to stop "Today"...These guys really are pros, aren't they? But even the best pros can't outrun the trackers that Natsumi tagged on their car and at the next intersection...Gone again? Only a tractor trailer truck but the tracker's still active & that trail of oil-The car's inside the trailer! Nitro on!
-Paint ball pistol firing plus expert timing by Miyuki pulling "Today" out of the truck's path equals one jack-knifed truck & the remaining two thieves in custody! Back at the station, Toukairin meets Natsumi on the roof...
-...To give her the carabiner (Hook for a safety line) that saved his life when he was climbing Qomolanga some time ago. It's the most precious thing that he has & he wants Natsumi to have it (She accepts it & will treasure it always).
Next time-File 6, "Scoop! Big Escape of Love"
File 6: "Scoop! Big Escape of Love"
-We open at night again but with a blue compact being chased by 3 other cars! Ken's after the blue compact for reckless driving but the driver gives both him & the other cars the slip.
-A little morning news for Natsumi before getting up for work: A certain celeb's been seeing a certain "Miss A" for a late-night rendezvous, another good year for rice, it's 11:18AM...11:18AM?? CRAP, I'M LATE! Surprisingly, the Chief tells her not to worry about it & the others quickly clam up...OK Miyuki, what's going on?
-Oh that's it...You all thought that Natsumi would be depressed since Toukairin returned to Toyama Prefecture so you're just giving Natsumi some space, huh? She's OK, guys...Oh wait, a call on her cell & it's from Toukairin & "Little Natsumi"!
-Ken wants to ask Miyuki about something? Let's leave them alone, Yoriko...But it's not what you & Natsumi might be thinking. Actually, he needs her help in catching the speeding blue compact that he encountered last night. There's something else too having to do with a WRC works mechanic at his dad's shop...Well, too late! Also Natsumi & Yoriko, don't eavesdrop at the door for too long...Busted!
-The same cars are at it again that night but this time Ken has backup in Miyuki & Natsumi, who cut off the blue compact while Ken deals with the 3 other cars. Turns out that the men in the 3 cars are all paparazzi who were trying to get photos of the couple in the blue compact-The celeb mentioned in the news & his girlfriend! His name is Katsuhiro Matsumoto & judging by the number of reporters outside Bokuto Station (Plus the female officers who are BIG fans of his), he's pretty popular indeed.
-His girlfriend Shino, on the other hand...They had been seeing each other even before he got his big break but the agency's president told her not to see him anymore. They've been meeting in secret since then but an entertainment reporter found out about it...And here we are. Don't worry-Ken, Miyuki & Natsumi will think of something to help you both...Maybe Daimaru can help!
-Daimaru's out but Sena thinks that he'll go for Ken's plan to use the Zapper shop as a relay point for Katsuhiro & Shino to change cars to avoid the paparazzi. Honda will be at the garage to help...Wait, who's Honda? The new mechanic?
-The kindergarten kids drop by with a new friend who lives nearby...Megumi, who says hi to her dad Honda but he's committing the ultimate sin-Tinkering with "Today"! Miyuki's scary when she's REALLY pissed off, isn't she? DON'T MESS WITH MY "TODAY"!
I'm test-driving it & if anything's wrong...So you get carsick, eh Honda? Come on, Ken!
-So Honda is the WRC works mechanic that Ken mentioned earlier, eh? That means that his skills are apparently top notch if Miyuki's reaction to how "Today" handled is any indication (She was impressed but DON'T do that again without my permission). BTW, Daimaru's back & he's on board for the plan...Let's do it!
-That night, Katsuhiro & Shino meet again with the paparazzi trailing them but this time, Ken pulls the paparazzi's cars over as the plan goes in effect! On to the Zapper garage (Escorted by Miyuki & Natsumi) for part 2 of the plan-Switching cars plus a couple of clever disguises to throw the paparazzi off the trail!
-Sorry guys, but you just got punk'd by Miyuki, Natsumi & Ken (Plus help from Daimaru, Sena & Honda)! ;)
-At last, Katsuhiro & Shino get to spend some time together without the paparazzi on their tail! Why not..The next day Katsuhiro goes public with their relationship, saying that he plans to marry Shino. If only certain other people had that kind of resolve...Right, Ken? ;)
Next time-File 7, "The Return of Strike Man"
File 7: "The Return of Strike Man"
-Late night in Tokyo finds a mysterious masked figure standing atop a factory smokestack, silhouetted against the moon & announcing his return! The Dark Knight? The Ghost-Who-Walks? Zorro? Nope, it's only Strike Man (Who needs to remember that he can't fly ;)).
-What's wrong, Saori? Sounds like you're in a bit of a rut...Watch out for that kid!
Fortunately, a pile of trash makes a good break for an immediate stop (With little damage to the patrol car) with no one getting hurt as well.
-An apology letter for the Chief so soon? Impressive, Saori...Keep your chin up though (And please don't become another Natsumi :sweat:)!
-During lunch on the rooftop (And between beating Natsumi for the fried shrimp) Yoriko hits it on the head: Saori's starting to feel apathetic since there's such a large gap between what she expected her experience here at Bokuto to be & what it's really been like for her so far since coming here. Let's all of us (Miyuki, Natsumi, Yoriko & Aoi) keep an eye on Saori for a while, OK?
-A special assignment from the Chief? Don't worry, sir...I'll take good care of this important document!
-Another parking violation & no one seems to appreciate my writing it up...Where did that strange ball come from? You in the mask...Who are you & why did you do this?
(Saori's partner Kaneko is calling Miyuki & Natsumi for backup just as SM runs out of balls)
Nice shot with the chalk writer, Saori (If only by accident)!
-SM's got a new pitch...The "Final Splash Hurricane Gorgeous Special" but it's still not enough to defeat Natsumi! And he's actually glad to see her (Even as he's making his getaway)!
-C'mon, Saori...You need cheering up after today & there's a great Turkish restaurant that Natsumi wants to treat you on (Or so Miyuki says)! Uh-oh, the important document...
...is gone! Is it really THAT important, Chief? I must have dropped it in the locker room-Oh no, the cleaning woman threw it away!
-Saori goes off on a bicycle in pursuit of the trash truck but runs into another pile of trash & loses the truck. It seems hopeless now but she gets unexpected help from...Strike Man?
-An unlicensed recycler? Maybe he has the document! After him!
Meanwhile, Miyuki & Natsumi get a call from Yoriko about Saori being long overdue for her patrol. Look, Miyuki-An overloading violation...Saori?? And Strike Man??
-Saori & Strike Man finally catch up with the unlicensed recycler just as he's leaving a warehouse not too far from one that Detective Tokuno & his partner were searching in a few minutes before. You know, SM's REALLY starting to get annoying...How does Natsumi-Senpai & Miyuki-Senpai put up with this guy?
-Miyuki & Natsumi arrive & between them & SM's ramblings about justice, Saori gets her groove back! And then promptly lets SM have it with both barrels-Good for her!
BTW, it turns out that this warehouse was being used for illegal disposal of industrial waste so she also helped Detective Tokuno crack that case as well-Nice going, Saori!
-About that secret document, Saori...It was actually your apology letter!
BTW, nice shot Natsumi-Right on target to end the episode! :sdsmiley:
Next time- File 8, "Spin! Coffee Cup for Two"
File 8: "Spin! Coffee Cup for Two"
-Morning patrol for Miyuki & Natsumi finds Natsumi on Cloud 9 after getting another postcard from Toukairin. You know Miyuki, it's been a long while since you & Ken have been on a date...Why not ask him out?
-A stop at the Zapper shop for a visit with Daimaru & company (Megumi's helping Sena with washing the windows while Honda is working on a part for a racing car). So Honda was also into racing as well as being a mechanic after his wife passed away? With Megumi now school-aged he decided to settle down & that led him here to Zapper. BTW, what do you think about the work on these parts, Miyuki?
-Megumi's a really good girl, isn't she? She's become good friends with Maho, Yuuta & Shou (Who come by invite her to come play with them) but she may be a bit lonely when her dad Honda goes to help out some friends at an upcoming race. No worries, Honda-Between Miyuki, Natsumi & Sena Megumi will be just fine so do your best at the race!
-Hi, Ken! Daimaru & Sena say hi & want you to stop by a bit more often. Also, don't you think it's about time you asked Miyuki out again? Uh-oh, what's this..."Dating Hot-Spots"? Woo hoo! Also suggestions from Yoriko, Aoi, the Chief & even from Saori (Even though no one's paying any attention to what she's saying) give Ken food for thought.
-"Your uncle from Detroit sent you a New Year's Card"? Ken, you can do better than that! BTW, you're treating Yoriko, Aoi & Saori to lunch for them coming up with the suggestions for a date with Miyuki!
-More research by Ken after work & by the time he gets home...A plan for the perfect date!
-Next day at work...He finally did it! Ken asked Miyuki out on a date tomorrow on their day off & she said "Okay"! BANZAI!!!
-Have a good time, Miyuki! Natsumi, if you're going to be bored most of the day why not give Toukairin a call?
Meanwhile, Ken's ready as well but an emergency call from Sena might change things a bit...
-Ken shows up late at the train station but with good reason: Daimaru & Sena had planned to take Megumi to an amusement park but Daimaru's back went out so Sena has to stay home to take care of him. They asked Ken to take Megumi to the park for them so he brought her with him to meet Miyuki (Who understands & is glad to see Megumi as well).
-Let's see...4 pictures, a note, a postcard & one bored Natsumi back at the apartment. You might as well call him, you know...It would beat just sitting around here all day, wouldn't it?
Meanwhile, the "Ken & Miyuki Date Surveillance Team" (Aoi, Yoriko & Saori) are staked out at one of the places on his schedule but I think they'll be waiting for a LONG while...
-There sure are a lot of families here at this amusement park, aren't there? First, the spinning cups followed by a ride in the observation tower, a try at a game by Ken & a water ride before a break for ice cream. Megumi seems to be really enjoying herself & that's good to see. Come to think of it, the three of them (Ken, Miyuki & Megumi) do look like a family together, don't they? ;)
-After buying a balloon for Megumi Ken spots..A purse snatcher! He doesn't get very far though thanks to Ken but in the confusion Megumi is separated from Miyuki so she & Ken split up to find Megumi.
-By early evening, no success but wait-There she is, sitting on a park bench! Megumi did just what her dad said to do if she got lost-"Stay in one place & I'll come find you". It's OK Megumi...Shall we go home now?
-Back at Zapper again...It was fun today wasn't it, Ken (Plus Megumi finally warmed up to you)? Also, Natsumi drops by after returning from Toyama Prefecture & her visit with Toukairin bearing a souvenir (A bottle of sake from Toyama). How about a drink to end the day, everyone (Except for Megumi of course-She's sound asleep ;))?
...Oh yeah, our "Date Surveillance Team"-They're still at the Cafe de Bokuto waiting for Ken & Miyuki to show up! Isn't it time you all went home? :sdsmiley:
Next time-File 9, "Women at War! Return of the Arch-Rival!!"
File 9: "Women at War! Return of the Arch-Rival!!"
-A shutterbug on a rooftop opens this one with a lot of junk food, a parabolic microphone in addition to his camera & an interest in Yoriko. A bit creepy, no?
-Bokuto Station is organizing an all-female Color Guard? Uh no, Saori...The Color Guard is not a sentai superhero group! A check of the website shows what the Color Guard actually is (Think marching band flag bearers) and...Isn't that Inspector Kinoshita as one of the flag bearers back in the day? How 'bout that?
-No takers? That might change when the Chief tells Yoriko that her Color Guard proposal was formally approved & their first assignment is the New Century Sumida River Festival 21...NEXT WEEK! No getting out of it now...
-Off duty and just as everyone is headed home a tractor trailer pulls up in front of Bokuto Station. "Gorgeous Angels"? This isn't Dirty Pair-What's all this about? The answer comes from the truck's PA with a familiar laugh & an open challenge to Yoriko from...Chie Sagami-Ono! Yes, she's back & she still has a chip on her shoulder where Yoriko is concerned, organizing her own Color Guard at her police station & challenging Yoriko to a final showdown at next week's festival. Who are you, again?
-No sex appeal? No class? You asked for it, Chie-This...means...war!
First, know your enemy-The other four girls with Chie are all former beauty queens according to their website but we'll win by winning the hearts of the audience! All of the female officers are in but Yoriko...
-Second, we need a costume & a name. Saori & Aoi's designs are too flamboyant but it's Yoriko that provides the inspiration for their costumes (Along with one of the window curtains). The flag design comes together as well along with the team name-"Barca a Vela" ("Sailboat" in Italian) thanks to Saori & Kaneko. A portable PA system will play the music they've selected while they perform (BTW, the team will be Miyuki, Natsumi, Saori & Aoi).
-Hey, when did Ken & the other male officers come in? NO MEN ALLOWED!
-Don't you love it when the opposition's bubble of overconfidence is suddenly burst (As is Chie & company's when they learn that the Bokuto Color Guard has their costumes ready)? I do!
-So Chie has hired a trainer to work with her & her team? She's getting desperate so there's just one more thing to do...Yoriko, you're joining us!
There's that creepy guy with the camera again on an nearby rooftop...He can't get enough of Yoriko, can't he?
-What, Bokuto doubled the size of their flags? We'll double the size of ours AND use two rather than one!
-Natsumi's really pushing them hard & that's not all...The male cops have to do all of the paperwork while the girls continue to train! Just hang in there until the end of the parade tomorrow, Ok guys?
-Late afternoon & Yoriko is still practicing but it's still hard to do and...Inspector Kinoshita? No, she won't talk to Natsumi about letting you out of this but she did come to offer you encouragement...Even after all these years, Kinoshita can still handle a flag with the best of them!
-Yoriko, you're late! And you lost your shorts to wear under your costume? Hopefully wearing the navy-blue panties won't make it that obvious. And yes Chie, she's in it to the end!
-C'mon Chief, wake up! Don't nod off with Inspector Kinoshita sitting next to you! Besides, the "Gorgeous Angels" are up first & you have to admit that they look impressive. "Barca a Vela" is next-Ken, don't drop the speakers! And focus on the sound system & not on Miyuki!
Just a second-Who's that guy with the camera? And why is he taking so many close shots of Yoriko?
-Yoriko's creeped out by this guy & accidentally hits him with her flag pole, causing him to drop his bag and...Hey, those are Yoriko's shorts! A panty thief! You're Under Arrest! And guess who gets the collar? Chie's team may have won the competition but-For the last time-who's the REAL winner here? ;)
-Apparently this perp's been a busy boy as a large collection of videos (All of Yoriko) & women's underwear were found in his apartment along with some 128 hidden cameras & bugs that he planted in Yoriko's place. C'mon Yoriko, were you THAT clueless? And what's this about prize money for winning the Color Guard competition?
