Episode Summary

EDIT
Godai on the Edge! The Sweet Trap of a High School Girl
AIRED:
Godai starts tutoring Yagami, but his neighbors keep interrupting the session. Eventually after dealing with them Godai and Yagami are able to get down to business. Godai is helpful to Yagami until Kyoko comes by and then he suddenly distances himself. Yagami starts to think that she'll never get into the right mood with Godai as long as Kyoko is around. At her home the subject of tutoring comes up with Yagami's parents. Apparently they don't know she's already got one. Her father who's a hard-nosed overprotective father points out that she doesn't want a man tutoring his daughter. Yagami wonders how long she can keep it a secret. We later catch up with Mitaka at his apartment. He's apparently been staying home with his new dog, a little pomeranian he named MacEnroe. Mitaka's been putting himself through rigorous training trying to warm up to the dog and get over his fear, but he's still controlled by his phobia and can't bring himself to spend more than a few seconds with it before running away. At the next tutoring session, Yagami and Godai try to study, but the tenants keep partying in the hall. Yagami suggests they hold a final tutoring session at her home. A week later Godai arrives and she brings him to her room. Now that Yagami has him where she wants him, she reveals that her parents are away at a wedding and they have the house to themselves. They try to study, but Godai is really jumpy whenever Yagami gets too close to him. Just then her parents come home early and Yagami hides Godai in her closet. Yagami's father comes to check on her and acts very suspicious of her going behind her back with a man. Apparently he was at the wedding of the daughter of his friend who was against the marriage. Yagami's father sympathized with him. Now he's totally drunk and mad at any guy who'd try to get close to his own daughter. Godai realizes he's dead meat if he's found. Yagami tries to get Godai's shoes so he can escape, but her father sits on them and won't budge. Yagami's mother finds out about Godai, but is a lot more understanding than her husband. She helps him out and gets his shoes. Even so Yagami's father almost finds out and Godai jumps out the window. Running through people's backyards he's mistaken for a burglar and pervert. By the time he gets home he looks all beaten up and he's not wearing shoes either. Back with Yagami, she still has his shoes he forgot. She cherishes them as if they were a gift.moreless
