Episode Summary

EDIT
Godai's Confession! I Want You to Know How I Feel!!
AIRED:
Kyoko finds out that her mother has been very sick lately and is unable to take care of her father, prompting her to go home and help out for two or three days. Godai gets worried that it could be another plot to trick Kyoko into quitting at Maison Ikkoku, but Mrs. Ichinose reassures him that Kyoko is too smart for that. Godai doesn't think much of it for the next few days, but after the alotted time passes he begins to think something may have happened. Trying to shake off his feelings of worry, Godai takes Soichiro for a walk and meets Mr. Ichinose, who is on his way home from work. Being the kind man he is, Mr. Ichinose invites Godai to have dinner with him and the two begin talking. Ichinose instantly guesses that Godai was walking around, hoping to run into Kyoko. He mentions to Godai that he reminds him of himself when he was younger and proceeds to tell him about a woman he used to be infatuated with at his first job out of college. She was a "jewel in a dunghill" he says, and he always hoped to get a chance to talk to her. One night, the company had a party, and he hoped it would give him the chance he had been dreaming of. Suddenly, an intoxicated young woman asks him to have a drinking contest with her. If he beat her, he could marry her. As it turns out, this girl, Hanae, was the future Mrs. Ichinose. As hard as he tried to lose, Mrs. Ichinose tricked him and agreed to marry him right then. Mr. Ichinose says he's never been happier. The next day Kyoko tries to tell her mother that she needs to go back to Maison Ikkoku, but her mother won't let her, so she comes up with a story about needing a special pillow or she won't be able to sleep. Mrs. Chigusa calls up Maison Ikkoku and requests the pillow. Godai is so eager to see Kyoko that he instantly accepts before Kyoko can tell him she's just trying to find a way to get home. Godai arrives wearing a suit, and proudly delivers Kyoko's pillow. While visiting, Kyoko's parents interrogate him about who he is and what he does. When the subject of girls comes up, Godai becomes nervous, but very delicately hints that he's in love with Kyoko. Of course, her parents don't get it, but Kyoko does, and after Godai leaves, she is unexpectedly happy.moreless
