Episode Summary

EDIT
Kyoko's Brush with Danger! Mother's Nefarious Plot
AIRED:
The tenants are shocked as Kyoko's mother tells them that Kyoko will no longer be the Manager of Maison Ikkoku. As soon as she walks out the door the movers rush in to pack up her room. Mrs. Ichinose goes into a rage after Yotsuya mentions that the previous manager also left this way. She doesn't believe that Kyoko could be anything like him, and that she always thought they were like an extended family. She continues screaming about how betrayed she feels when Godai collapses to the floor and begins crying uncontrollably. Ichinose hauls Godai down to ChaChaMaru so they can get drunk and tell Akemi what happened. Yotsuya stays behind in Kyoko's room to reflect on the recent events. A few minutes later, Kyoko arrives, running late from grocery shopping and is shocked to find her room completely empty and Yotsuya standing in the middle. Yotsuya tells her that her mother came and quit for her, then had her furniture moved to their house. Kyoko becomes furious and rushes to find her mother, before she goes she hands Yotsuya a box of Takoyaki and tells him to share it with the other tenants. After she leaves, Yotsuya goes to ChaChaMaru to tell the tenants about what happened, in his own unique fashion. He tells them that she brought them this gift of Takoyaki and then left to her mother's house without another word. Godai and Ichinose are throughly drunk by this time, and Master tells Yotsuya and Akemi to take their friends home since they're hurting his business. As the tenants head back and continue their partying in Kyoko's room, she arrives. She tells them how insane her parents are, and how the whole thing was just a ploy to get her to move back home. Godai buries his head in her lap and cries himself to sleep as the rest of the tenants drink late into the night.moreless
