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?"
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?
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.
