Episode Summary

EDIT
A Bittersweet Favor! Budding Christmas Love!?
AIRED:
Godai rides the train to its destination, and meets Sakamoto at the appointed cafe. Sakamoto shows up late an sits down, very sullen. He tells Godai that he was able to figure out what the rock consisted of, but that he forgot the rock on the train. Godai panics and they run to the platform's lost and found and to see if anyone turned it in. Unfortunately, no one has, and so Godai and Sakamoto board the train to search themselves. They don't find it and have to come back to their original destination just to ask at lost and found again. When they arrive this time, the attendant says someone turned it in down the line, but when they check into it, they find a rocker, not a rock. Godai begins to lose all hope, and can't believe that he is responsible for losing the only present Soichiro ever got to give Kyoko. Sakamoto says that if he found it he would have just thrown it away. As soon as Godai hears this he leaps off the train and begins digging through the trash cans. Suddenly, he finds the rock, but just as he does, the train leaves the station with his bag on board, and inside the bag is Kyoko's bracelet. Sakamoto and he learn that the train attendant is holding the back for him at their station in Yotsuya. Godai is so exhausted and late for the party that Sakamoto agrees to go get his back for him while he takes the rock to Kyoko. The entire night, Mitaka has been trying to find a way to cheer Kyoko up. All she can do is sit quietly and worry about why Godai isn't with them. On his way to Chachamaru, Godai gets some stationary to write a card for Kyoko. As he rushes to the bar, he falls in the snow and loses Kozue's card. Everyone at Chachamaru is happy to see him, and give him some beers to warm him up. Akemi turns out the lights for a slow dance, and as Mitaka searches for Kyoko, Godai sneaks out and Kyoko follows him. Godai goes out in search of Kozue's card and finds it just before Kyoko gets there. She thanks him for all he's done for her, and tells him she'll treasure his card forever. They decide to walk home together, enjoying the fresh snowfall.moreless
