I was so excited last week when the first episode of Itazura Na Kiss 2 came out. I was as disappointed when I realized that it was exactly the same episode as the special except for the last couple of minutes.
Basically when Naoki and Kotoko land in Tokyo they are picked up by Kanomori, who works at Papa Irie’s company. Kanomori keeps quiet throughout the ride refusing to tell them where they are heading. Naoki is worried thinking that something happened at his dad’s company.
Naoki, Kotoko and Kanomori arrive in front of a house. The latter is still mysterious and urges them to go inside.
As soon as the doors of the house open, our couple is warmly welcomed by the Irie family and Papa Aihara! This house is now their new home. They will all leave together again. There is more space for everyone and this house would be perfect to welcome Naoki and Kotoko’s baby!
Mama Irie asks Kotoko how was the honeymoon. Naoki jumps in and asks if they enjoyed the “honeymoon” as well… Kotoko is totally confused. It’s only when she notices a picture of her and Naoki kissing on the beach at Okinawa that she realizes that the Iries and Papa Aihara were in Okinawa too. Gosh I thought she would never realize. It took her so long :-D.
Kotoko’s first day as Naoki’s wife starts the next day. She wakes up early planning to cook for her hubby – natto, omelets, miso soup, etc. She can’t wait for Naoki to wake up to all this yummy food. She even thinks of how she will send him off to work – handing Naoki his brief case and sweetly kissing him. Actually, all that was a dream. Kotoko failed to wake up early. When she rushes downstairs, Kotoko finds that Mama Irie already cooked and cleaned. Mama Irie implies that it’s only normal that Kotoko is tired after her honeymoon…
Naoki, who is ready to leave for work, teases Kotoko. He was looking forward to this morning and the great dishes he was going to eat. Kotoko apologizes and promises to cook the next day. Naoki smirks; he isn’t expecting anything from her.
Naoki is finally about to leave when Mama Irie stops him. What about the goodbye kiss? Mama Irie even had her camera ready. Mama Irie would have been a great papparazi.
Naoki refuses to be intimate with Kotoko just for Mama Irie’s camera to snap pictures… Mama Irie ignores Naoki and adds that the couple hasn’t registered their marriage yet. Kotoko is panicked! No marriage registration means that she is still Aihara Kotoko! She urges Naoki to go to the ward and register.
Mama Irie then shows a marriage registration form. Oh, and just in case they make a mistake she has several. Mama Irie is seriously the best.
