Episode Summary

EDIT
Be Still, My Beating Heart! Asuna Kujo's Very First Time
AIRED:
Kyoko's fated meeting with Mitaka never happened. Kyoko thinks it was her fault for falling asleep. Mitaka thinks it was his fault since his dog phobia kept him from showing up. She feels guilty about Mitaka, but also is still mad with Godai. Ichinose finds out that she was supposed to decide whether to accept his marriage proposal and this news reaches Godai who now fully realizes the magnitude of his selfishness. At Mitaka's apartment his uncle is visiting and still persists in hounding Mitaka about the marriage to Asuna. Mitaka decides to reveal his dog phobia to his uncle to get him off his back, but his uncle thinks he's just making excuses. At the daycare Godai is wondering how to apologize to Kyoko since he she doesn't seem to be speaking to him. He gets a voice tape from a little girl named Kyoko who's got a crush on him asking him innocently to marry him. He gets an idea to do the same thing. Kyoko and Mitaka make up, but she finds out that the omiai is still going on with Asuna. Godai comes home to see Kyoko is talking to him again, however she still seems troubled about Mitaka. In his room Godai first records a voice tape for the little girl at his daycare. He then sits down to record his feelings on tape to Kyoko, but has trouble finding the right words. The other tenants show up and use his tape recorder for a karaoke party. The next day Godai sees Mitaka pledging to break up the omiai arrangement just for her. Godai feels inspired and records a heartfelt message for Kyoko. He hands the recorder to Kyoko and tells her that his true feelings are on the tape. Meanwhile Mitaka is on a date with Asuna where he plans to break up with her for good. However Asuna's dogs followed them all the way from her home. Mitaka tries to get away from the dogs but they catch up with him and in his terror, Mitaka hugs Asuna. She notes this is the first time a man has held her. At Ikkoku-kan Kyoko listens to Godai's tape, but it addresses her with cutsey baby talk. At the other Kyoko's house (the little girl from the daycare) she's listening to a tape of Godai sincerely affirming his commitment to her. The girl's parents are rightfully concerned. Yes, Godai got the tapes mixed up.moreless
