-Natsumi's romantic thoughts of summer open this episode but she's not the only one with thoughts of a romantic getaway...Aoi?? And not to Hawai'i or Saipan but to Kyushu?
-There, Aoi's sighing again! It's almost as if he's depressed or something...What could be wrong with him? Of course, Yoriko has the answer-Aoi's in love! Of course she has proof but sighing over a daytime drama & getting an e-mail are only circumstantial evidence. We need material evidence-Let's pay a call on Aoi tonight!
-Hi, Aoi...THIS IS A RAID!! Exhibit #1: Chat found on Aoi's laptop! Exhibit #2: A man's name found on Aoi's cell phone e-mail! Who is this guy, Aoi?
-OK guys, Aoi will come clean so you don't have to hack his laptop or call the man on his cell! Apparently his name is Kunio Gouda & he's a friend living in Kyushu that Aoi met over the internet but they haven't met face to face yet. He's a Leo, single, 28 years old, played baseball, etc. & judging by his picture a hottie to boot!
-OK, since you've gotten to know this man so well via chat have you sent him a picture of you, Aoi? And does he know the truth about you? Aoi didn't tell him but he did send a picture of him with the others for Kunio to guess which one is Aoi-But he thinks that Yoriko is Aoi! Time to tell him the truth but it's too late-Aoi gets an e-mail from Kunio saying that he will be in Tokyo on business next Monday & is asking him out on a date that night!
-Nothing to do but to go through with it...Yoriko, you're going to be Aoi for this date!
-Kunio gets off from work at 5:30PM that day so some sightseeing at Asakusa Temple & Tokyo Tower before dinner at a restaurant in Odaiba, then drinks at his hotel's lounge to call it a night. Also, you have to cram studying Aoi's chats with Kunio & Aoi's favorite pastimes (Specialty dish-Meat & potatoes; likes swimming, flower arrangement & Beethoven among other things) before you meet him, Yoriko! Aoi has a lot going on in his spare time-Who knew?
-So Kunio has been helping you keep your spirits up when you struggle at work, Aoi? He sounds like a good man and you don't want to hurt him by revealing the truth about yourself...OK, I'll do my best on this date!
-Yoriko catches on fast, doesn't she? But on the day of the date, not only does Aoi follow her to see how she does but Miyuki, Natsumi & Saori as well! Uh oh, an e-mail-Kunio's running late & wants to meet at Shinjuku Station (Where his client is) instead of the temple. So much for sightseeing...
-Shinjuku Station and...Hey, that's Ichiro Suzuki (Outfielder-Seattle Mariners) on the big screen!
Another e-mail from Kunio...Meet at the South Exit? That kills the dinner reservation but you can still eat at another place nearby though.
-We're at the South Exit but it's been over an hour now...What could Kunio be doing all this time? Meanwhile, as they wait they've met up with Natsumi's friend who owns a takoyaki stand that they borrowed for the "C'est si Bon" case. Also, another e-mail...Now Kunio has to return to Kyushu so they can't meet this time. What?!
-He's at Honeda now so Aoi decides to try to catch up with him but he won't be alone...Natsumi, Miyuki & Yoriko are coming too! Sir, thanks for letting us borrow your van-We'll take good care of it so in the meantime Saori can stay with you as a "hostage"!
-Ask in just the right way & even the truck drivers will help out! But once at the Honeda airport they're too late as the last outbound for Kyushu has taken off. Wait..Another e-mail! Kunio's not on the airliner but on the Expressway bus instead-We can still catch him!
-Before long they catch up with the bus at the next interchange & Kunio & Aoi finally meet, face to face. Aoi tells him the truth about himself & apologizes...But Kunio also fesses up: He's the father of twin infant girls (Whom he's been carrying in a basket with him) & had just recently gone through a divorce! You never know, huh?
-Back in Tokyo again (BTW sir, thanks for the use of your van & keeping Saori company-Drinking sake all night?)...What, an e-mail from another guy (This time from Hokkaido) coming to see you, Aoi? Oh, no-You're on your own for this one! Good luck, Aoi!
