-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?
