He Lives Above The Clouds is the eighth episode in Season 2 of the Netflix series Aggretsuko.

Netflix Synopsis

"The unassuming Tadano turns out to be a rising tech mogul. He offers to take Retsuko out for ramen, but it's nothing like she's imagined."

Summary

During the meeting between Chararyman's CEO and Freeride's CEO Tadano, Tadano explains his AI ENI-O and how he is different from other AI and how with ENI-O, he can create new value and demand for the company.

Haida was excited about Freeride's CEO visiting them, but Fenneko didn't care as only tech-nerds would care. Retsuko listened to Haida and his praises for the CEO and though he sounds amazing. Later Gori also talks about the Freeride's CEO, but Retsuko changes the subject and wonders if they have made up with Washimi, but Gori then stops talking. Retsuko then speaks with Washimi, who also praises the CEO and also keeps quiet when she asks her if they made up with Gori.

Stuck in traffic, Tadano wonders whats the cause and tells ENI-O to analyze it. He sees Retsuko and decides to go talk with her and they go to a coffee shop. As they talk, he wants to treat her a dinner to celebrate she getting her license and Retsuko agrees only if they split the bill as she thinks he had no job and money.

Later Tadano came to pick up Retsuko in his limo, which shocks Retsuko as she couldn't understand whats going on. He explains who ENI-O is and takes her to the airport, where they take his private plane and go to Hokkaido's Taiga Ramen. Tadano apologize for not telling her all the truth as his intention wasn't to deceive her. Retsuko wonders why he took driving lessons, when his car is self-driving and Tadano explains his goal is to free everyone from manual labor and he first needs to free his employees of meaningless work. Having a driving license, would mean he won't need a fake driver and the fake driver would have time to do something else he wants, while he still pays him.

On the next morning, Retsuko though all of this was a dream, but then sees the receipt from the Taira Ramen and a message from Tadano, making her fall in love and enter her love state. They go out a few more times. Tadano eventually manages to recreate Retsuko's driving license as she refused to show it to him. Seeing it, Retsuko wants Tadano to delete the image and he promises he will.
