Support live recap for last ep :) http://www.vingle.net/posts/50071-Thinking-about-doing-Rich-Man-Poor-Woman-Live-Recap
Reporters surrounded Yoko's restaurants with questions about Asahina. Yoko told them this restaurant has nothing to with him and she has nothing to tell them. Some guy was about to complain to her but the nice rival chef stopped him. He told her to take an extended break for awhile.
Hyuga came in for questioning at Tokyo Prosecutor's Office. They told him Toono confessed he teamed up with Asahina regarding the leak. When asked about the reason. Toono said nothing special. But it seems he was jealous of Asahina and Hyuga's friendship and teamwork. Hyuga is shocked to find out it was really Toono after all.
The next scene makes me LOL so much. Makoto was waiting for Hyuga to come back and when she heard him she rushed to the office telling everyone let's show him our smiles and make a cheerful atmosphere. So as a result she and everyone welcomed him with the most awkward and strangest smiles. He got annoyed and told them that's not like human smiles at all.
Yasuoka showed him a video some high school kid took at Next Innovation which is empty and totally abandoned. The trio is worried about their co-workers there. Makoto sensed the atmosphere and gathered everyone's attention saying let's get to work. The trio is worried about Hyuga's attitude when presenting new product. Makoto is teaching him the manner.
Makoto: What do you say when the other party asks you to repeat your explanation?
Hyuga *scoffs*: Are you stupid?
Makoto *smiles*: YOU are the one that's stupid.
Makoto makes him repeat after her how to converse politely. This scene is so funny. It's like she's teaching a kindergarten kid.
Makoto and Hyuga went to meet potential customer. He tries to remember the guy's name. Makoto says don't forget to show your smile when you see him. They agree to give the product a try but Hyuga made a mistake at the manager's name but lucky for him Makoto is there.
Hyuga complains saying he never thought it's so tiring being a door-to-door salmon. He asks her how many points would she give him for his effort of being polite today. She says since you couldn't remember the manager's name then 95 points. He complains she's too strict and that today was perfect. Makoto is amused, pats his chin and teases him like a little kid lol. He tries to chomp her hand but failed!! Why this couple so adorable!!!
Hyuga went to the prison to meet Asahina but Hyuga doesn't want to see him.
Hyuga and Makoto went to meet another client. Makoto is surprised to see Hyuga shows proper manner and even did a 90 degree bow. Hyuga cheerfully asks how many points do I get today? Makoto cheerfully says 89 points.
Hyuga: What's your problem?
Makoto: You were a bit out of character.
Hyuga: I was serious!
Hyuga mumbles he really wants to get perfect score or something.
Makoto: I think you right now are amazing. Out of all the different Hyuga Tohru I've seen the Hyuga Tohru now is the most amazing and coolest.
They took the bus to go back. Makoto fell asleep on Hyuga's shoulder. Hyuga shyly leans on her head and sleeps. Cutest scene!!!
Hyuga and Makoto goes to H&M to present their latest product. Pretty cool thing that scans your body and creates a 3D avatar of yourself. You can select your outfit without having to take the time to try on. It was very well received. They interview Hyuga and asks if it was his ideas. He says it's everyone in the team who thought up the idea. Makoto says to herself: "He's really amazing after all."
Hyuga is about to go to a business dinner with others. He runs to her and says why not go together. She politely says not today. He tells her good work today. Then turns his head and says "Today's point is?" She laughs and says 120 points. You were perfect! After Hyuga left, Makoto says with the biggest smile, "You were absolutely perfect. There's already nothing I can do for you anymore."
Makoto at the office looks through the magazines written about Hyuga as an entrepreneur who made a huge comeback.
Hyuga still tries to meet Asahina but Asahina doesn't want to see him. Yamagami came to see Hyuga and asks him to come back to Next Innovation and rebuilds it. "If it's you you can definitely revive it." Hyuga apologizes saying "Right now there's something else I want to protect."
Makoto packs up to go to a research facility. Her friend asks why she's leaving the company. Makoto says there's nothing she can do for him anymore. He's already so great and able to do things he couldn't do before. She then cries on her friend's shoulder :(
The trio reads about Next Innovation being in a difficult situation. Hyuga says then shall we come back and fix it? The trio reacts strongly. Hyuga laughs and says just kidding. Makoto is at the facility doing research work. Hyuga tries to call her but she doesn't return his call. Lovesick Hyuga runs to her house and even tries to peek in the window. He even tells Yasuoka: Just how long does she plan to take the vacation? Where is she now? Yasuoka also doesn't know.
Hyuga mumbles, "that lying woman" And wonder what is with this suffocating feeling he has right now.
The priest gives him some enlightening words.
Hyuga: I just want to see her face right now….
Hyuga takes the train and goes to Makoto's hometown. He met Yoko on the train! They talked about how each other's doing. Yoko asks if he has a fight with Makoto.
Yoko: He didn't meet anyone, even our parents
Hyuga: He didn't even meet me either
Yoko *surprised*: So you came to see him?
The prison guard gave Asahina a comic book before. He asks, did you read it? It's fun right? Here's the 2nd volume. Asahina mumbles it's nothing to laugh about in that comic book. It's all messed up.
Hyuga wonder if Asahina will ever come back. Yoko told Hyuga he doesn't want to meet anyone probably because he doesn't have a place to go back and the most wonderful place that Hyuga created was destroyed by him.
Flashback of the time two of them working together from the beginning.
Asahina: It's really all messed up. And it was fun.
Asahina's tears started to fall. Asahina is surprised to see his tear. I guess he's not so evil…Asahina: "It really was fun"
Hyuga said the same thing to himself: "It really was fun"
Yoko asks if she could come with him to Makoto'place because she wants to be of help to him.
Makoto is praised by her superior for her work. She asks him whether they will continue needing people for this job. He replies yes.
They came to Makoto's restaurant and got treated a great feast by her family. They talked about Makoto who told them she's happy doing what she's doing. Hyuga wanted to come back but Yoko asked if it's ok not meeting his mom. She showed him the pic Asahina gave her and told her to use it how she likes.
They finally decided to go to his mom's pub. Hyuga is annoyed saying she doesn't know his face and all. But she came back in time to open the restaurant. She made him omelet rice but he showed no reaction so she thought it's no good. He said it's delicious. It seems he's on the verge of crying but he holds back well. Then his mom says: "You are…" But she doesn't recognize him. She thinks he's the famous CEO Hyuga Tohru. She told him she thought he was really cool. And his mother must be proud of him. Hyuga is disappointed.
Hyuga and Yoko are waiting for the train. Hyuga says in the end he couldn't say anything but he's just glad that she's doing alright. He wonders why he doesn't feel too sad. Yoko says, "Isn't that because you have someone else that you want to see even more? The person you want to see the most now is Natsui-san right?" Hyuga nods.
Hyuga thanks Yoko for coming with him. It was thanks to her that he's able to make a decision. They look like best friends.
Hyuga is running somewhere probably to meet Makoto.
The guy who quit the company to do a startup told the trio Hyuga will come back to NI. They don't want to believe it.
Hyuga came to meet Makoto at the facility. She wondered how he knew about her facility. He said he called her university and found out about it.
Makoto: I see.
Hyuga: I see?!?! I even went to your apartment and even your hometown to look for you!!
Makoto: You even went to my hometown?!! Why?
Hyuga: Why…It's because we are co-workers so of course I would be worried about you!
Makoto apologizes. Hyuga said there's something important he needs to tell her…it's about the company. Makoto says she does too. Hyuga grinning, "What is it? :D"
Makoto says please go first. Hyuga told her he'll come back to NI to rebuild it so Asahina can come back someday. Makoto says she's so glad because she thinks they're the best partners. Hyuga says but he doesn't know whether he can do it or not.
Makoto: It will be fine. If it's you I'm sure you can do it.
Hyuga *smiles*: When you said it it sounds so easy.
Hyuga told her he met his mom but didn't tell her he's her son. He's happy as long as she's doing well.
Hyuga: But because of that I now realize there's another person that I want to see even more!
Makoto *smiles and nods*
Hyuga *confused*: You…What did you want to talk about?
Hyuga: Y…You said you have something to talk about didn't you?
Makoto told him she'll further her study and Hyuga: "Isn't that great? Give it a try" Makoto apologizes for not being able to stay by him. And this silly guy actually says "It's fine" (!!!)
Makoto: You will definitely be able to reunite with Asahina-san one day. The person you want to meet the most now is him right?
Then they say goodbye. And the clique scene happens when one of them turns around and looks at the other walking away without knowing the other did the same too!
End of ep 10
I'm really upset at the screen writer for making this ep like this! In the last scene I thought he would run after her! Hyuga, if it pains you so much why did you let her go?!?!?! To top it off they fight again in next ep. Yoko tells Hyuga: Are you stupid? How can you not know your own feeling?! Then we hear Hyuga screaming: Why don't you pick up my call!?! Are you going to a mixer again?!?!
