As we rejoin the Daimaru family, the characters are still dealing with the fallout of Chizuko trashing her own engagement party in the previous episode. Gozo reveals that he had been planning to announce Masato as the heir to the Daimaru Corporation at the party, and the businessmen and politicians he invited to witness the event were not impressed by Chizuko’s behavior. In order to satisfy these offended power players who are key to the future expansion plans of the Daimaru Corporation, Gozo decides that it is necessary to publicly reject and disown his now delinquent daughter.
As Masato and Shinobu desperately search for the runaway Chizuko, Pastor Wakayama tries to convince Gozo to accept her back into the Daimaru family. Unfortunately Gozo’s right-hand man Teshima has other ideas…
We’ve almost reached the halfway point of the series, and like so many of the J-Drama series produced by Daiei TV in the 1980s, the bonkers level seems to increase with every episode. Stay tuned, more episodes are in the works!
And as always, this is a joint production with our friends at Grown Ups In Spandex.
