Episode Summary

EDIT
Chase After Me, Godai. Kyoko's Lone Trip
AIRED:
Kyoko gets a letter from Mitaka about how he's ashamed at what happened in his apartment. He vows never to see her until he confronts and overcomes the source of his problems (namely his dog phobia). Now Kyoko seems to have been rejected by both the men in her life and is alone again. Since she seems depressed, Ichinose suggests she go on a trip to forget her troubles. Kyoko decides to do it, but Ichinose, Akemi and Yotsuya keep butting in and trying to plan her vacation for her. Kyoko begins to suspect that they plan to tag along. Meanwhile at college Godai discusses with Sakamoto what happened last night. He's confused that Kyoko cried over his rejection, even though she seemed to be with Mitaka now. Sakamoto comes to the conclusion that Kyoko cried because she loves Godai. Realizing he could be right Godai hurries back home to talk to Kyoko and clear things up. He gets back too late as Kyoko has already gone and left a schedule on her door of where she'll be going. Godai grabs the schedule and runs off to find her. Meanwhile Kyoko is still stuck at the train station with her tenants having caused her to miss her train. Kyoko knows they'll probably follow her so she sneaks off and jumps on the first train out. She doesn't notice that Godai's on the same train with her. The following day, having arrived in Kanazawa Godai searches all over the tourist areas for Kyoko, but even though they're continually crossing each other's paths, Godai never sees her. Kyoko on the other hand keeps hearing his voice or seeing glimpses of him, but she thinks her mind is playing tricks on her. Kyoko also manages to pick up a traveling companion who is also traveling on her own. She seems cheerful at first, but Kyoko finds out she's feeling suicidal deep down. This trip was apparently supposed to be with her and a co-worker she's been seeing but instead she was simultaneously dumped and lost her job right before. Kyoko starts feeling lonely too and wishing that Godai would chase after her, but thinks it'd never happen. While they're out, Godai keeps hanging around the inn Kyoko's staying at waiting for her to show up, but the innkeepers think he's suspicious and he's detained by the police. The next day he spots Kyoko getting on a bus to the next location, but the same policeman stops him for jay walking and he misses his chance once again.moreless
