EDIT
Even Yotsuya's Shocked! The Day Maison Ikkoku Disappears
AIRED:
Kyoko frantically decides to try and get in touch with her father-in-law, the owner of Maison Ikkoku. Instead, the get Ikuko, who tells her that he's in Hong Kong on a business trip for a few days. So they still have no answers about the rumor of Maison Ikkoku's destruction. Kyoko worries that Mitsukoshi will be affected the worst, and tells him so, but he feels sorry for the rest of the tenants who have lived there for so long. The group decides to track these rumors to the source, and get to the bottom of this. Akemi asks Master where he heard it from, and he said various customers told him. When Kyoko arrives, she tells them she got in touch with the Public Works, and found out that a similar building to Maison Ikkoku is going to be torn down, and that that must be where the confusion started. Yotsuya enters and discounts her theory, stating that his "co-workers" all told him that they were sure it was Maison Ikkoku that was scheduled for demolition. Godai goes in search of Coach Mitaka to see if he knows anything. He tells him he's only heard things from the tennis club, but is curious about another rumor he heard regarding Kyoko getting remarried. Godai discounts it, but decides to fill him in on her fondness for Mitsukoshi. With everyone hitting dead ends, the tenants begin to give up hope, until Godai meets with Kozue. She tells him that she's seen Mitsukoshi going into a realtors office every morning on her way to school. Everything finally begins to click and Godai rushes out of the cafe, telling Kozue he has to check on something. Godai and Mitaka stake out the office building and watch as Mitsukoshi enters, Mitaka insists that they tell Kyoko before confronting him. Godai agrees and so they meet with Kyoko, who refuses to believe them at first, and then tells them that she'll handle it. When she finally does confront Mitsukoshi, he tells her that the realtors office used to be a building he grew up in, and he continually visits it for nostalgias sake. Godai doesn't believe this and wants to interrogate him, himself, but Kyoko refuses. Overnight, Mitsukoshi dissapears. The next morning a telegram arrives for him from the realtors office telling him to report to work immediately. When the tenants try to see if he's home they discover he has moved all of his things out completely. Days later, everyone gathers at Maison Ikkoku and learns that Mitaka was able to piece together various parts of the story. Mitsukoshi worked for a company that investigated old properties where new buildings could be built. Apparently, after getting to know everyone at Maison Ikkoku, he felt so terrible about what he was doing he called his office and quit, causing them to send the fateful telegram. Kyoko is especially saddened by the fact that he felt he had to leave, but is relieved that everything turned out for the best regarding Maison Ikkoku.moreless
