I did my best with the translation but I'm still studying Japanese so please forgive me if there's any mistake.

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.

Recap FINISHED :) Comment and share this card on your network ^-< *photo courtesy of @missvetrina 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. Hyuga: *speechless* 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. Hyuga: Asahina… 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? Makoto: Ehhh? 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? Hyuga:....Yeah.... 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?!?!
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!!
Rich Man Poor Woman Ep 7 Japanese Drama Full Recap Summary
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
