Summary

Using nunchucks, Retsuko cuts beer bottles. Yoga Instructor informs her that there is nothing more to teach her and the only thing left is to defeat him. The two then jump at each other, engaging in a fight.

Haida and Fenneko help Retsuko with her move. As Retsuko opens the door for the electric company, Haida and Fenneko comment it was smart decision to move as her fans could have easily found her previous place. Additionally there is a store below that keeps bright at night, which could help with the stalkers. As they help her unpack, they get shocked seeing nunchucks, bear traps and various other weapons. That evening at the karaoke, Retsuko shows Haida some self defense moves and immobilize him. Fenneko informs Haida that she will be leaving soon and will give him chance being alone with Retsuko. Haida then walks Retsuko back to her place. She thanks him for walking her as she was a bit scared and he suggests he could be doing it for a while and Retsuko accepts. Retsuko then decides to invite him for a coffee and Haida accepts, but before he steps in, he freezes and states he can't drink coffee anymore and decides to go home.

The next day at work, Fenneko is annoyed that Haida failed, even though she gave him such a good opportunity, but at least he will be walking her home again. They see Director Ton, who then goes to accounting and informs them that they won't be getting a bonus this quarter. The news shocks everyone in the office and Fenneko motivation goes seriously low. Anai suggests that they should go on a strike. Retsuko sees Haida drinking coffee and commenting that the company performance has fallen recently.

In the conference room, Shachou, states that they are no longer dreaming big and they should proceed with building their massive theme park, Chararyman Land, and stake the company future on it. He gets cheered on, however, Washimi kicks him on the head, stating that the performance is low due to him keep gambling with the company's fate. Himuro comments that Washimi is right and explains that the proposed site is hard to get and they will also need to develop the surrounding area to secure enough visitors, and the costs would exceed the initial estimates. Shochou is upset, but decides to cancel the project.

Meeting at a coffee, Washimi tells Gori and Retsuko about the conference room meeting and that Himuro is not like the rest yes-men, and deserves better role than non-executive director. Gori then changes the subject and asks how is the romantic development going with Retsuko and Haida, as he has been walking her home lately, however, Retsuko tells her there is nothing going on as Haida always leaves home. Gori is surprised as according to her app, he is her ideal match, however Washimi states that her app failed to monetize and it doesn't matter what an AI thinks. Retsuko believes that Haida likes her, but she never thought about Haida being her boyfriend. Washimi tells her she can't really know him, unless they have been on a date.

Ton's 30th anniversary at the company is approaching and he and Tsubone are remembering the good old days where they could easily spend company money. Komiya calls Retsuko and informs her of a surprise party and that they want Retsuko to give a present to Ton. However, Retsuko states she doesn't know what could make a guy happy. Fenneko then jumps in and states she knows someone who is free and could help.

Haida and Retsuko then go out shopping. Haida recalls the earlier meeting between him, Fenneko and Tsunoda, who tells him that this will be a date and he needs to make reservations at a restaurant and proceeds to give him advice on what he must do. While they shop, Haida likes Retsuko's ideas, but finds them cliche or not practical. Annoyed, Retsuko tells him that he must choose then. He takes her to an antique shop and finds a perfect gift, a golden abacus. After buying it, Haida asks if Retsuko is hungry and that he knows a good place. However, he then sees Tadano on the news screen, announcing of Miyabi takeover bid and freezes. In that moment, Manaka shows up and joins them. Retsuko tells her she has been singing her song at the karaoke, but Manaka explains she haven't earned any money from it yet and is still working part-time. Realizing Retsuko and Haida may be on a date, Manaka states they should talk another time, but Haida then wonders if he should go home as they haven't seen each other for a while. Haida states that he forgot a friend was coming over and leaves them. Manaka is annoyed at how awkward he was and wonders if he is Retsuko's boyfriend, but Retsuko states he is just a coworker.
