Episode Summary

EDIT
Godai Gets a shock! Kyoko Calls It Quits
AIRED:
Godai walks home from the laundromat, wondering how he's going to dry his clothes on the dangerous clothesline at home when he notices a strange man walking behind him. As he gets closer to Maison Ikkoku he notices the man is still following him. Godai goes inside and sees the man peeking over the wall. He quickly tells Kyoko, and they both go outside to investigate. They find the man hiding behind a telephone pole and Godai yells at him, causing him to run away. After a few verbal insults from Godai, Kyoko nervously tells him that the man was her father. Back his apartment, Kyoko's father, Mr. Chigusa and his wife Ritsuko argue about how stupid he must be to get caught at Maison Ikkoku. Kyoko calls and argues with her mother, but agrees to visit them the following Sunday. When Kyoko arrives at their apartment, she and her parents get into a knock-down, drag-out fight, and they tell her they want her to leave the slum that she's working at, and change her name back to Otonashi. Kyoko leaves in a huff, but is inspired to fix up Maison Ikkoku all by herself. The next day, Kyoko fixes the balcony, but when she leans back on the railing to admire her work, the railing collapses and she nearly falls. She agrees to call the professionals and let them handle the work. Before long the tenants find that Ikkoku has a termite infestation, and Kyoko has to fix that as well as patching up Yotsuya's hole in Room 5. One night, when Kyoko isn't home, Mrs. Chigusa appears and tells the tenants that she is sorry, but effective immediately, Kyoko will no longer be their manager.moreless
