Episode Summary

EDIT
Alright! In the Bath with Kyoko! Just the Two in an Open Bath
AIRED:
Kyoko is on the bus headed towards the next stop on her trip. Godai on the other hand is stopped on the side of the road since his taxi broke down. When Godai finally catches up with the bus, he finds out Kyoko changed plans and got off earlier near the hot spring resorts. Godai gets a ride there and begins searching all the inns one by one. He just misses her right before she checks at an inn by the seaside. Kyoko phones Ikkoku-kan. Ichinose tells her that the plumbing is being fixed but everyone's fine, including Godai. Only after she hangs up do the tenants realize that Godai's not home. Kyoko is disappointed since she thinks all those glimpses of Godai she's seen and heard on the trip were just her imagination. As for Godai, by evening he's had no luck so he checks into an inn for the night. Feeling that he's failed, he goes to try out the open air hot spring bath. Shortly after Kyoko is in her room bored out of her mind. With nothing else to do she goes to soak in the hot springs. After she undresses and goes out, she discovers to her dismay that there's no wall between the male and female sides. Since no one seems to be around she decides to go for it. On the other side Godai is hidden away. He's spent too long in the hot springs and is beginning to pass out. As he lumbers back, he splashes the water and startles Kyoko and they see each other. After the initial surprise, they turn their backs to each other and Kyoko tries to make conversation. But then she notices Godai has passed out under the water. She rescues him and the inn staff bring him to her room to recover. Sometime later Godai wakes up and notices Kyoko is in the room with him. He loses his nerve and tries to run away, but Kyoko brings him back. They sit across from each other exchanging awkward pleasantries. Godai pretends they're meeting was a coincidence which disappoints Kyoko. Both of them want to speak clearly to one another but can't seem to. Kyoko manages to explain to Godai what really happened in Mitaka's apartment. Godai is relieved but feels like a fool for having hurt Kyoko. They talk well into the night and Godai falls asleep. Kyoko's relieved she met with him and goes to hug him, but the phone rings. It's Ichinose who tells her that the plumbing burst and is spraying water everywhere, so Kyoko has to return home right away. Godai wakes up the next morning to find her gone and wonders if he did anything to make her leave. Meanwhile Kyoko arrives back at Ikkoku-kan where everything is already fixed. But she finds out from the tenants that Godai really did follow her after all, which makes her gush with happiness.moreless
