Episode Summary

EDIT
The Princess Cometh! Mitaka is Her Prince Charming
AIRED:
This episode introduces Asuna Kujo, daughter of an ex-noble family who are business partners with Mitaka's uncle. Mitaka meets with Asuna and her family for the omiai. Mitaka seems to like her, although is surprised to see such a meek and old-fashioned girl in this day and age. Asuna wants him to meet her "brothers and sisters" and so she goes to fetch them. The siblings she was referring to turn out to be her dogs. Apparently Asuna is an avid dog lover with six dogs of her own. Mitaka having a dog phobia, doesn't react well and goes into a seizure. He definitely decides to cancel the arranged marriage. He tells Kyoko that he's canceling for her sake. Around the same time Kozue calls up Godai and comes to visit. She offers Godai a part time job at a day care that opened up after her friend decided to leave. Godai seems happy to take it. Meanwhile Asuna's parents talk discuss Mitaka's sudden strange behavior during the omiai. They wonder if they should call it off, but Asuna has decided she wants to marry Mitaka. All of her dogs really liked him, and that's proof enough for her that he's the person she's destined to be with. Asuna's parents hire a private investigator to look into Mitaka's background, who starts asking questions around Ikkoku-kan about Kyoko. The tenants easily give him information, but in exchange for having him buy them all drinks. Needless to say they bleed the poor man dry. Through the P.I. Asuna winds up finding out about Kyoko and decides she'll ask her nicely to give up Mitaka. For the past while, Godai has been going to his new job at the day care. Kyoko's happy that he's found a job he likes, but seems a bit lonely since she never gets a chance to talk with him anymore. As Kyoko is taking Soichiro-san out for a walk, Asuna shows up with her dogs and starts chatting with her about dogs, but loses her nerve and runs off before she can talk to her about Mitaka. Still she eventually finds out the omiai wasn't canceled, despite what Mitaka told her. Feeling cornered, Mitaka proposes to Kyoko that he'll call of the omiai if she'll agree to marry him. If not, then he'll never see her again. He gives her one week to decide what her answer will be. Kyoko doesn't know what to do and looks to Godai for support, but he's rarely home anymore.moreless
