I did my best with the translation but I'm still studying Japanese so please forgive me if there's any mistake. Hyuga went to Tokyo Public Prosecutor's office for questioning regarding Asahina who was arrested. Asahina denied having anything to do with the information leak. With Hyuga's testimony, the public prosecutor found out the person who is responsible for the leak and Toono's name came up. Around that time, Yoko is surrounded by the media who wants to ask her questions regarding Asahina. Yoko is forced to take temporary leave. Makoto supports the Wonder Wall that Hyuga created with all her heart. On the other hand, Next Innovation undergoes investigation and faces the risk of business suspension as well as possibility of bankruptcy. Upon hearing the news, Makoto is in agony. But still, in order to get the new company started Makoto continues to work hard. Makoto feels a bit lonely as Hyuga is gaining confidence and thinks she might not be needed anymore soon. Yamagami asks Hyuga to return to Next Innovation as CEO. Hyuga tells him there's something else he wants to protect… Later, Hyuga comes to visit Asahina in the prison but Asahina refuses to meet him. It's not just Hyuga, Asahina also refuses Yoko and his parents. At the same time, Hyuga received an email from Makoto saying she has to take a vacation. Curious, Hyuga called Makoto but she didn't pick up. Hyuga got worried and went to Makoto's apartment but she's not there…

Ep 8 Preview Summary http://www.vingle.net/posts/46897 More screenshots of ep 8 http://www.vingle.net/Rich-Man-Poor-Woman-japanese-drama *************************************************************** Start of ep 7 is beach scene with the funny trio of Next Innovation standing at the beach thinking it's impossible for them to enjoy. What happens to the continuation of ep 6!!! Flashback and everyone received a notice ordering Next Innovation to cease operation. The guys can't relax but a girl from the company in cute bikini telling them to hurry and join in which made the guys opened their mouth wide (due to her cuteness ^^'). So Yasuoka immediately agreed and quickly took his shirt off to join her ^^; . The two other guys unable to resist the awesomeness of the beach in summer finally gave in and ran to join them. Makoto is sitting by herself worrying as usual. She's not wearing a bikini and some kids asked if they could rent some beach equipments which made she got mad at them. On the TV, there's a live report about Next Innovation. The reporters came to to the company to stalk Hyuga. Hyuga appears in his casual clothes and annoying reporters flock around him like bees see honey. Makoto heard some people at the beach watching the live report making comments like Hyuga is in big trouble and stuff. She was about to go tell them off but Yasuoka stopped her. At the end of the day, the group is about to go back. Makoto looks at her phone and Hyuga's number which is labeled as Next Innovation's President and thinking of calling him. The guys wanted to go back to the company. Aww. Isn't it great when you go to work because you want to not because you have to? ^^ Hyuga, Asahina and Yamagami (the old dude with glasses) are at the company discussing. Is it just me or Hyuga's hairstyle looks different here? Asahina commented how Hyuga looks troubled, "Is it about my sister? It's so unlike you not trying anything yet. Well I guess I should appreciate you taking your time with her. My sister is probably not interesting enough to you." Yamagami tried to ease the tension but Asahina keeps on talking. He told Hyuga he confessed to Makoto and he's serious about her. He said, "I love her, Natsui-san" Hyuga scoffs and laughs saying "Stop joking around." The tensed atmosphere is broken with the return of the noisy staff. They gave Hyuga some corns as souvenirs lol. Natsui came in Asahina's smiling face became serious. Natsui came Hyuga's office and saw him lying down on the floor. She got him some souvenir from the trip but didn't want to disturb him and was about to leave then he said "You lying woman." Makoto: "Ehh?" Hyuga: "…Never mind" Makoto started to apologize for not picking up his call. Haha I just love how Makoto is kneeling down on the floor and Hyuga is wriggling his feet and turn over like a kid mumbling, "that time…" (the time he was kissing Yoko >_<) Hyuga remembers that time he let go of Yoko after kissing her saying sorry. Yoko looks disappointed here. Good job Hyuga! We'll forgive you for kissing Yoko if you kiss Makoto in this ep ^o^ . Makoto frantically tries to comfort the sulking kid Hyuga saying she'll definitely pick up his call next time and will even bring it with her when she goes to the restroom. Lol Makoto: "Are you ok?" Hyuga: "What are you talking about? You think it's the end of the world for me if you don't pick up my call?" Makoto: "But…" Hyuga: "I'm fine and I will keep on living so don't worry about it!" Makoto is a bit sadden. She told him about people laughing and talking about him at the beach. Hyuga looks a bit flustered, probably it's because he's afraid she'll think like them too. Makoto: "But when we were about to go back from the beach, it was Hosoki-san that said he wanted to go to the company. Everyone really loves the company! I'm really happy. They didn't come here for President Hyuga but for you." Next, Hyuga decided to sell all his shares to compensate for 5 mil people whose data was leaked. This shocked Yamagami and Asahina. They both hesitated but Hyuga persuaded them. Hyuga and Asahina standing in front of Next Innovation wall. Hyuga wondered if his method is wrong but Asahina said it was his that is wrong. Asahina, "This is your company." They look at the empty office then at each other. Hyuga: "Let's re-build it again!" Asahina: "Good. That's the attiude" Makoto is at home whining about the hot weather. Suddenly she got a phone call. She ran to the restroom thinking it's from Hyuga lol. She really DID bring her phone with her to the restroom. It was from a pharmaceutical company informing her that she got a job interview from them! Opening song: Oh I'm loving this song more and more Makoto is at the interview with all these old men smiling and telling her stuff. Makoto feels awkward and mixed feelings. It seems she wants to hire her but she can't be all happy. Her college friends dragged Makoto to karaoke to congratulate her but she's feeling down. Asahina and Hyuga (back in suit) walking to the office and all the girls turned around to look at Hyuga. He, I don't blame them. Makoto is happy to see Hyuga cheered up again. Yasuoka came to ask Makoto something and he realized she'll end her contract next month. Yasuoka said it will be lonely without her here. Hyuga did an interview at a TV station telling his plan to compensate for people who had their data leaked. After the interview, Hyuga talked to Asahina. Hyuga mentioned it was Makoto that gave him the courage. Of course he didn't say it directly but we all know that's what he meant hehe. Asahina looks a bit disappointed. The rival chef at Yoko's restaurant is making some desserts for a group of ladies who are squealing because of his manliness and pretty food he made. Yoko is super happy because everything is going according to her plan which is using a male chef to win the heart of female customers. Yoko is ecstatic but the rival chef doesn't show his happy face. Maybe he's embarrassed. I wonder if he has feeling for her…She thanks him for forgiving her. Makoto is talking to her friend on the phone and promise she'll reply to their offer but Hyuga keeps appearing in her mind. Yoko appeared out of nowhere and invited her to go out for a drink saying she has something good to tell Makoto. Hmm I wonder what could it be…They came to a bar and saw Hyuga and Asahina there. Awkward moment ensues…. Asahina stood up and invited them to sit down. Yoko was laughing and telling how nothing happened between her and Hyuga that night. But then she mentioned that they kissed. How could she do that in front of Makoto!!! They were laughing about it except Makoto. Yoko said a phone call interrupted them. Makoto: Phone call…? Asahina: You called? Makoto" …No… Yoko (let out a heavy sigh): I see Asahina: Natsui-san, who is it that you like? Hyuga became alert at this sentence. Makoto can't take it anymore, "Please stop it! I'm just doing my job " The evil brother-sister giggling enjoying teasing poor Makoto lol. Makoto said how Asahina kept teasing her and that she's gonna finish her contract soon. Yoko said it seems Makoto got a job offer. Hyuga hears all of this and it's funny how his eyes roll around fully alert of the convo even though he pretended like he doesn't care. Later the 2 of them walked home together but keep a distance from each other. Hyuga congratulated her on finding a good job. Makoto finally confessed! Makoto (tearful): "It doesn't matter in what way but won't you let me stay by your side? I want to work with you (aka stay by your side)." Hyuga (eyes are red, smiling): "Didn't I tell you? Now…(hesitated when he saw her big eyes starring at him)…just think about yourself." Makoto (teared up, forcing herself to smile): You're right… Oh dear, she's wiping her tears while thinking of excuse and still forcing herself to smile. Hyuga's eyes are so red to. I think he doesn't want to involve Makoto in the mess he's facing now. I love their crying scenes! Superb acting! She apologized for saying something that bothered him. He couldn't look at her in the eyes and pretended not to care saying "Yea, do your best." Makoto: Being able to work for you, I was really happy. Then she bowed to him who is overwhelmed with emotions. Makoto's eyes are still filled with tears. Hyuga went to catch a taxi and made her take it. He said goodnight then left. Yoko came home drunk with Asahina. She complained, "What's up with those two? Why do us siblings have to suffer because of them." Asahina smiled, gave her a drink, "You should give up on Hyuga. It's enough already. I'm so tired" He threw his jacket at her and she got angry and threw it back but it hit his laptop and it fell down. She apologized and checked if the laptop is ok. And found out what Asahina has been doing behind Hyuga's back!!! Yoko: "What's the meaning of this?" Asahina: "It has nothing to do with you." Yoko is shocked. Next Innovation stocks went up to 1000 and the company cheered. Hyuga said now it's the right time. He said they'll launch Personal File. This time he'll explain it carefully. Asahina pretends to give him full support but it seems he's scheming something! Poor Hyuga completely put his trust in Asahina Hyuga properly explains about Personal File system to shareholders and show them the profit will increase in years. He bowed and apologized for the trouble he caused. The shareholders seem persuaded. They all agreed to launch Personal File. But…Yamagami spoke up! He said there's a problem with Personal File system. Then he goes on and said he would like Hyuga to step down as CEO. Everyone is shocked. The shareholders started to say let's have a vote. Asahina got mad, "Wait the moment! This is Hyuga's company! How can you do such a thing?!" The shareholders ignored Asahina and most voted for Hyuga to resign. All the employees are gossiping and worried. Hyuga appeared and acted like nothing happened. Makoto is worried Makoto is staying behind the office by herself. She stares at Next Innovation wall and Asahina comes in. He said Hyuga still hasn't come out of his room. Makoto says she'll go home. Next morning. Yoko saw Hyuga stepping out of the building and ran after him. Her rival chef looks at her running to Hyuga with an unhappy face. Now I'm sure he starts to like her! Hyuga told her now it all depends on Asahina. Yoko: "That's not true." She remembers Asahina told her "Are you going to tell Asahina. Go ahead and tell him if you want." Yoko hesitated to tell Hyuga the truth. Hyuga thanked her for worrying about him. At the company, Yasuoka was saying how he prefers President Hyuga over President Asahina. He saw Hyuga walked in and came to him calling President and started to tell him about the schedule for today which made everyone shocked. He looked over and his co-workers are giving him the NG sign. He realized what he just done and apologized profusely. Hyuga laughed saying don't worry about it too much and struggled to remember what Yasuoka's name was. Makoto is in her job-hunting outfit which Hyuga commented "How nostalgic." She said she will start her new job soon. They said goodbye with a smile. :( Hyuga is in his office working while suddenly he got a message from Asahina regarding Next Innovation. It seems he decided on something big which shocked Hyuga. Yamagami is walking with Asahina. I knew they were working together after all! Asahina has some big plan to bring Hyuga down even further! Hyuga got a call from Sakaguchi (the smart guy he fired in early episode). Through him Hyuga found out Asahina had been in contact with Tono. Hyuga now has realized something. Hyuga wants to have a press conference so the reporters are coming. The employees wondered why. Yoko didn't eat her lunch and waiting to watch the press conf. live. Her rival chef commented no matter what happened she should eat first and asked what's wrong. But she said it's nothing. Yoko remembered the flashback when Asahina told her to go ahead and tell Hyuga. Yoko asked why. Asahina said it's a payback and that he thought he could never win against Hyuga but he'll win this time. He'll destroy Hyuga Tohru. Hyuga entered the room. Asahina whispered "Too bad" as they walked past each other. Now Hyuga knows for sure Asahina betrayed him! Hyuga looks so sad as he saw Asahina leaving the room. He tried to hold back his tears and emotions to announced that he resigned from the CEO position and will quit Next Innovation. All the employees are shocked. Questions are flooded in by reporters. Asahina watching it on TV in his office showed no surprise. He started laughing like a mad man and jumping around for joy Makoto saw the live broadcast and is shocked. End of Ep 7
Rich Man, Poor Woman SP Recap Summary
Finished! Season is 99% confirmed! The question is when they will announce it! ----------------------------------------------------- It starts with the recap of the series up until now with the OST. Ahh I miss the OST!! Finally after 5' of flashback, it starts with the busy NY city. I like the way Tohru walks haha. I have the same red scarf! Tohru is testing out some translation device. He tells the guy he wants to buy all the hard disks they're producing. The Next Innovation team is shocked to find out Tohru is in NY without notice. Flashback to the day before. Tohru seems to have some new innovation about the Personal File user interface. Tohru wants to create a new project for Personal File called oshi-ire. Tohru is trying to persuade the factory guy but they keep refusing. Makoto delivers a speech about some difficult science subject in English. It seems she's going to meet Tohru. I'm so jealous of people who got to see them filming in NY. Tohru appears from behind Makoto while they're talking on the phone. Makoto is smiling happily~~ I miss her bright smile :) . But hold on, not even a hug???!?!! Anyway they compensate us by holding hands going to the Central Station (I think). I love how Tohru's smile is full of happiness when he's with Makoto :"). They loook like teenagers on their first date :)). The new OST is not bad. Tohru says she looks just like a year ago. Tohru asks about her departure time and Makoto tells him it's at 7. I like how Makoto is so understanding. She smiles and tells him it's fine because the Tohru who is hardworking is the most attractive!~ Makoto looks like she was waiting for a kiss but in the end he just hugs her!!?!? Tohru sees Makoto off in the rain. Ah long distance relationship is never easy. Skip to a few weeks later in Tookyo. Tohru is at a restaurant with his female employees (?) celebrating 1 million download of a new smartphone app. Just when they are about to toast the girls screamed and ran away. Turned out it was the ghostly-looking Makoto glaring at Tohru lol. Tohru laughs it off but Makoto showed him a photo of him with the girls on her ipad. Tohru is speechless. Tohru is annoyed asking why she suddenly comes back. The girls at the company scream when they saw them not sure if it's happiness or horror. Everyone greets Makoto like the CEO's wife :)). Makoto says she'll be staying for only a week. Tohru warns her not to think of staying at his place. Makoto tells him she'll find some place to stay but of course we know that's not how it's gonna turn out. Makoto is mesmerized at the hardworking Tohru. She's greeted by the trio. The shorty guy says he's getting married to one of the girl and she shows Makoto her ring. Makoto seems to be a little envious. It's funny how the employees are trying to get Makoto stay at Tohru's house. Tohru looks troubled. Tohru's house has lots of towels for some reason…His fridge has nothing but drinks lol. I love Makoto's suitcase! They're sleeping. Makoto is packaged in the sleeping bag and Tohru is on the couch. Makoto wonders about their strange situation. Tohru lifts her up and let her sleep on the couch, "With this you would have no problem right?" Oh dear, am I hearing this right? Makoto wants to hug Tohru!!! Tohru turns around with this pondering look on his face (what are you waiting for?!?!). He gets up and unzip Makoto's sleeping bag, oh my my. Makoto reaches out and touches Tohru's face~~ She comments that his face is cold. And here comes the cutest scene, Tohru touches Makoto's forehead and says it's warm and they…just hug…????!?!! Someone has a bad sleeping posture lol. Tohru is awoken because of the chopping sound. Tohru is shocked to see the existence of a rice cooker!! While Makoto is totally enjoying her housewife game, Tohru is at his limit. These two cannot be more different in terms of taste. Tohru is such a geek when it comes to industrial design stuff. He keeps going on about the perfect design of the pan and its being the first to be produced. Ah I wouldn't want a hubby like that hmph! They continue arguing about the use of hand towel lol. I must agree with Makoto's housewife sense that's it's a waste to wash the towel after a single use. She even comments on how the pitiful the towels are if you just throw them away after using them once. Asahina is buying something from the convenience store. Ah I still remember how expensive it is to live in Japan even for buying stuff from convenience store. Flashback to an hour before, he saw his colleague reading the article about him. Yoko appears and shows Asahina the comments of those who hope he would come back to Next Innovation. She told him why not going back but Asahina has not intention of doing that. Tohru is in a meeting with JITec. They want to install something that works with Personal File. Tohru is not happy and yelled "For whose sake are you making this!?!?" Makoto goes to a restaurant and happens to see Yoko. She asks if Yoko has quit the restaurant and Yoko's sous chef showed up and said she hasn't quit! Aww I hope they will end up together. Yoko told Makoto she's working part-time and asks how it is being with Tohru. Makoto smiles awkwardly and says "It's a little troublesome." Tohru announced to his team that he wants to bring back Asahina! Tohru asks Asahina if he wants to work together but Asahina says he won't go back to Next Innovation. Tohru says then they can just work at another company. "If it's you then I will be able to do the things I want to do." Asahina tells her Tohru to do it alone. It's inevitable that there will be disagreement when different people work together. Asahina asks if Tohru is scared and gives him words of encouragement. Tohru says he got it and will take the company to a new high. He tells Asahina, "You're the one who is running away." Makoto is being transferred to America next week! Wow Tohru gave her a corner with metallic barrier in his house. Somehow she's like his pet. As much as I love this couple I don't like the way Tohru treats her... They went on shopping in Ginza and Tohru picked out an outfit for her. He's totally mesmerized :)). Personally I think the outfit is a bit strange. Makoto's colleague asks if she has decided; Makoto said she wants to stay in Japan because there's someone important here. The employees complain about about the project that Tohru wants to do. Everyone decides to go to Wonder Wall. Yamagami (or whatever his name is) tells Tohru that he should bring back Asahina no matter what. Tohru is upset that the company he has spent 12 years building has become so boring. Makoto has an interview but it didn't go well. She went home and brought up the topic of her transfer. They got into an argument. I really don't like how Tohru is treating Makoto! He even said "this is my house" aka "get out of here" He even threw the dress he picked out! Wow I would be so mad if my bf did something like that. Makoto got upset and said "You haven't changed at all" Makoto wanders around and is spotted by Asahina. They went to a computer room/hostel (where you can stay and rest for all night). Asahina tells Makoto the meaning behind the oshi-ire project and Makoto realized she said something horrible to Tohru. Makoto thinks she troubles Tohru but still believes he'll definitely become great. Asahina told Makoto to go to Yoko and she ended up helping out with the wedding stuff for the girl who is about to get married. Wow didn't expect this to be a 2hr SP. Makoto and Tohru decided to break up and Makoto went to NY. Tohru finally successfully implemented the Personal File project. Asahina decided to come home. Everything went well but Tohru of course feels something is missing. In Boston, Makoto checked her cell and saw many missed calls from Japan. Turned out it was from Yoko. Makoto thinks they shouldn't have gone out to begin with. She said it wasn't love but because of their job that they're together. Tohru is in NY wanting to buy the hard disks but they want him to pay double. Asahina returned like a hero to help out with the negotiation. Asahina persuaded JI Tech to agree with the outsourcing. Everyone at the company is helping out the lovely couple. They tell Makoto that Tohru is in NY and will go to Boston. They sent Makoto the "director cut" version of Tohru's congratulatory message. Tohru finally said what he really means to Makoto, "I'll take responsibility for you. So you should stay by my side." Asahina called Makoto saying Tohru is in Boston, "He's no good without you." Makoto runs out to find Tohru and they finally meet by chance. Makoto tries to make up all kinds of excuse but in the end admit that she has something to say to him that's why she wants to find him. She asks what he means by something is not right about them. Tohru said he wanted to see her face and he was able to see her so she can go. Makoto cries and says that there's no way she can go after hearing that. "Even if we fight I still want to be with you. I tried my best to change. Can't you change for me too?" Tohru stands up and asks Makoto "Who do you think I am? I…" then without saying anything he just kissed her!!! Lol way to go!! Tohru: If it's for your sake, I can change. She asks him to call her everyday but he says impossible lol. He got a text while on the plane and thinks it's annoying but still happy to see the heart icon at the end. Skip toward the last ep of the series. Tohru takes Makoto to his home hehe. He agrees to go with the towel but not one with the bear lol. He calls her Makoto for the first time and it make her squeals like a fangirl :)) . She kisses him and asks him to call her once again and happily call him Tohru. The caption at the end says, "The end is the next beginning." I see a season 2 coming!! Our prayers have been heard!!

Makoto apologized and asked if he's ok. They shocked faces looks so cute. Hyuga scoffs, can't believe he came to this state. Makoto says, "It's ok. Whatever happens you're Hyuga Tohru so it'll be ok. Even if we failed…." She got cut off by a flying plastic bag that flew to her face. Hyuga is amused and smiles while gently dust off sand from her face. Oh naughty hands~~ Hyuga's face got serious and leaning in for a kiss. Here is the moment we've been waiting for….BUT when Hyuga's lips are only 1cm away from Makoto's, he regained sanity (lol) and stopped (now we all realized we've been trolled by mean script writer-san!!!). He commented on her lips that are covered with sand…(uh that's not reason why you stopped right…) and she quickly try to dust off her face. Hyuga wants to go home and sleep. Hyuga is like a little boy being mean to the girl he likes (chuckles). Next morning, Asahina is in the newspaper being praised by the media. Some reporter came for interview with him. Hyuga took Makoto to the office he prepared. For a second I got my hope up thinking it was his house…Makoto saw the chairs Hyuga prepared for the trio but pointed out that hers is not there. I gotta chuckle when Hyuga says, "I didn't ask you to come." Makoto commented on how expensive the rent and cost is but Hyuga made a what's-that face. Hyuga decided to sell his house and cars. He seems so carefree so the lawyer guy (?) asked do you know how much you're worth now? The lawyer calculates and shows how much he got. Hyuga showed up at Makoto's house and after a 3s pause he says, "Can I stay at your place?" Makoto, "EHHHH???!!!" Makoto ended up coming with him to the temple. Hyuga, "I guess you'd get in trouble if I stay at your place…" Makoto, "That's right. If you think about it carefully, this place is perfect for you." But she has to carry his luggage lol. The priest talked to Makoto about Hyuga's mom and his job. Hyuga sits far away like a little puppy. Makoto wonders if he'll open his heart to her. Priest says you just have to break down his wall. Makoto says she will then looks at puppy Hyuga's back. Asahina at the meeting with the board of directors who requested a change in interface because the cost is too high. Asahina agreed to it. The trio asked why he agreed then Asahina gave them their new contract. He raised their salary (to keep their loyalty). Asahina says some pretty words to get their motivation up. They agreed to design the new interface for cheaper price. Asahina is at Yoko's restaurant, chewing on sugar cubes!!?! Yoko kicked him out saying lunch time is over and told him she'll be moving out. She can live anywhere. Asahina says she doesn't have to go that far even if she's mad at him. She just said she doesn't like the way he does things. Yoko meets up with Hyuga. Yoko is surprised that Hyuga actually knows what Asahina did and asks, "Aren't you angry? Everything has been stolen from you." Hyuga, "I guess. It would have been better if I could get angry. But there's an idiot who follows me." Makoto looks at Hyuga's bankbook and amazed at the number. He got over $3mil and now he has a bit over $1000 left. Makoto looks at the carefree Hyuga who's spinning around in his chair. She has a I-cant-leave-him-alone face. Makoto decided to have system to manage money. Hyuga doesn't care and just wanna lies his head on the table. Hyuga, "there's nothing I want to do…" Makoto says first he has to enter a company and start to work then he'll realize it's the kind of work he wants to do. Hyuga asks, "Then is it ok if I become like that?" Makoto couldn't answer. Hyuga says, "It's just like you said…But now…NOW I want to eat pudding~~" Makoto is speechless Hyuga is at the bakery choosing a pudding next to a kid. Makoto mumbles, "This is no good, that guy is like a kid." Her phone rang, it's her mom. Hyuga walked out and overheard her talking to her mom and felt guilty for making her turn down a good job offer. Makoto hung up and cheerfully told Hyuga let's go drink bear then she ended up drunk while he's munching his pudding lol. Her phone rang but she's too drunk to notice. It's from her mom. Hyuga just stares at her filled with guilt. Then the news he was watching started talking about Asahina and the change in user interface of Personal File. Hyuga got mad. Asahina at the meeting with the board delivering the change of user interface to the lady from the govt in first ep. The trio looks worried. Asahina came back to the office and they're painting over NI wall. The employees look sad. Asahina saw the worker painting over Hyuga's words and stopped him just so he could paint it white himself. Everyone looks shocked. Asahina told them to get back to work. It seems he took a picture of the address of Hyuga's mom that Makoto wrote before. Makoto is on the phone looking for job. Hyuga looks around and saw his framed photo with Makoto in her box. Hyuga is in deep thoughts. Makoto went to the bank to withdraw her money. Her friend tried to stop her saying she shouldn't do that for a man. Makoto says she does it because she loves him! Ah in the name of love~ Makoto suddenly wondered what Hyuga thinks about her. Makoto surprised to see she got 1.5 mil yen deposited in her account. Yoko saw Asahina outside the building and sarcastically commented, "You seem busy being a CEO." Asahina asked where she's staying. She says anywhere is fine as long as she doesn't have to see his face. Asahina says he's going to meet Makoto. Makoto returned the money to Asahina. He asks how Hyuga is doing. Makoto says he's not doing any thing at all and wonders if he doesn't want her by his side. Asahina: Still you choose to do this? Makoto: Yes *confidently* Makoto stands up to leave but Asahina asks her to stay longer because he feels tired somehow and it's fine as long as she sits there. This better not be another one of your evil scheme! Yoko came to meet Hyuga and handed him the USB that is the evidence that Asahina leaked the info but Hyuga doesn't care. Yoko told him she wants to do something for his sake. But he tells her to stop it because it has nothing to do with her. Yoko bitterly says, "You're right. It has nothing to do with me." She saw the writing Makoto put up and remembered Asahina is going to meet Makoto. She told Hyuga she found a good restaurant so let's go there. Jeez, jealousy can make people turn evil! Yoko took him to the restaurant Asahina is at with Makoto (how does she know where they went?) and told Hyuga he has been fooled! Hyuga doesn't move and stood in shock. Makoto meets up with the lady from the govt. How nice to have connection! She's so nice to Makoto. She apologized for calling her suddenly Lady: You're good at memorizing things right? There's something I need you to memorize for 30'. It's something only Hyuga Tohru can do. Makoto ran back as fast as she can to tell Hyuga the good news but…Hyuga told her she should leave and go back to NI. It's better if she goes to Asahina!!!! He says he saw them earlier. She tries to explain but he says it's fine already. She asks if she's a burden to him…and look at with the saddest eyes ever. Makoto: Can't you trust me? That's right, because I lied to you before… Hyuga: Yea there's that huh…(Why he always says things he doesn't mean!!!) Hyuga shut the door behind her :( . Happy ending come quickly!!! Makoto saw their photo and thought of something then start writing energetically while crying :( At night, Hyuga dragged himself back to the office. He remembered all the painful memories, the time when his mom abandoned him, Asahina's betrayal, and Makoto's sad face. Aww he's crying…Wow it's the first time he couldn't control his emotions and tears started falling out…. Then he started laughing and wiped away his tears. He turned on the light and saw Makoto's writing covered all the wall. It's her reminders about what Hyuga needs to remember and stuff. Who isn't touched by this? Go run after your girl!! But no, he turned on his PC instead…Guess that's his way. He put their photo on the table (like how you put your girlfriend photos on your worktable hehe). He started working finally. The new interface is introduced. The lady says the cost is reduced to half. A new game appears and the trio is touched knowing it's Hyuga who designed it as he makes the characters with their names. Hyuga has a way to get people follow him!! They smile as they see the "Let's change the world!" written on the screen. Yasuoka is in tears while smiling. Aww The reason why they all know because Hyuga made the same mistake putting Yasuoka's name as Yamaoka. Asahina isn't pleased obviously. Hyuga is running to the station to pick up his cinderella. Jumping up and down and fixing his outfit hehe. This recap is getting so long. I don't know how to make it short >_< They faintly saw each other~ Hyuga got shy and hides behind the wall (LOL why you so adorable) Makoto giggles. She came behind him who is avoiding her and asks what he's doing at this place. Wow they stand so close to each other! He says he's taking a walk. He told her about the new interface and told her what's up with the papers she put all over the wall. Hyuga opened the door and is surprised to see it unlocked. Yasuoka is there, "Welcome back! President!" He asks what they're doing. They say they want to design the new interface and want to create something that has never been seen before. Hyuga jokingly asks who are you again? Everyone is beaming with happiness. Love Makoto's smile so much!! Asahina got report that the trio left to go to Hyuga. Yamagami told Asahina to think about his action. Everyone was looking up to him and Hyuga creating their dreams. Yamagami: "You are obviously not enjoying this at all." Asahina is at the global ICT summit delivering a speech. Everyone clapped but Yamagami is troubled by what will come. Hyuga discusses with everyone about designing Personal File's interface. "Let's make something no one has ever seen before!" They suggested creating their own wall like the one they had at NI. Hyuga hesitated. Makoto handed him the marker assuring it will be ok, they will be with him. Hyuga started writing, "Money is the most importuning thing in order to do anything…." Everyone: "Excuse me?" Hyuga continues, "But…" Everyone: "Huh?" Their reaction is so funny. "(something something, I can't read this character >__<) cannot be sold." Wonder Wall (don't know if that's a good name or not…) Asahina came home and found Yoko crying in front of his door. He asks her whats wrong, do you still love him? Yoko got a text that is the picture of the writing Makoto wrote about the address of Hyuga's mom. Asahina told her to use it well. The tables are delivered to the office for 5 people. Makoto is SO happy saying "So you wanted me to come from the beginning." Hyuga is annoyed saying just hurry up and do your work. Hyuga told her to go to the kitchen and have a talk. Hyuga: I'll believe in you. And also one more thing… He showed her the paper that she wrote "I want to break down Hyuga's wall" Hyuga: You better take responsibility for breaking down my wall. Got it? Makoto: Yes, sir. Yasuoka broke the cute moment. It seems Asahina got found out and he is being handcuffed while being taken to the police. Hyuga is shocked. END of ep 9 I feel bad for Asahina in the preview…Can't wait for more sweet moments between Hyuga and Makoto!!
