Mischievous Kiss 2: Love in Tokyo Episode 6

Let’s pick up where we left off last week: Naoki and Keita are still having a nasty exchange – glaring their eyes at each other and exchanging harsh words. Naoki tells Keita to not lay his hands on Kotoko and to bring it on if he dares to.

Kotoko later tells her fainting incident to Satomi and Jinko. When she woke up, Naoki was monitoring her! How cute and cheesy. With that, Kotoko wouldn’t mind fainting from time to time. Yet, what Jinko and Satomi care about is Keita’s identity. Who was this handsome guy carrying her? Is she having an affair?! It would be interesting to see Keita and Naoki fighting over Kotoko… Dear ladies, your wishes are about to become true.

Summer school starts: Kotoko and her teammates are studying for a project except that Kotoko isn’t being as productive. Thankfully we have Keita; he is always there to give her an abrupt wake up call. Girl needs to stop constantly thinking and dreaming about Naoki and FOCUS. After the last group meeting, Motoki proposes that they hang out one more time before the beginning of the following semester. Bowling it is. Only Tomoko is unable to join them; she has a part-time job. Not surprisngly it involves cutting something – fishes. She’s so creepy.

Things quickly get rough though. Kotoko doesn’t know anyone in the nursing program plus she is three years older than the other students. Oh, oh let’s not forget that Kotoko starts her nursing program by attracting attention to herself. Negative of course. She is caught day dreaming in class and is called out by her professor.

Kotoko meets her nursing teammates.

The golddigger Marina. Her ultimate goal is to marry a wealthy and accomplished man. Preferably a doctor – that’s why she decided to become a nurse. Shallow much.

The passionate Keita. He’s enthusiastic about everything he does. He wants to become the best nurse and pushes his teamates to work as hard. His personality seem to often clash with Marina’s; he can’t stand why she decided to become a nurse.

Meanwhile Satomi and Jinko are crying their eyes out at the graduation ceremony. They are saying goodbye to their friends while they are still stuck in school. They each failed a class – strict attendance requirement and turning someone’s homework by mistake. I can’t believe that even Kotoko is graduating and not them… Well she is actually not graduating but going to nursing school.

Mischievous Kiss 2: Love in Tokyo Episodes 1 and 2

Episode 1


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.


Episode 2

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.

2014-09-24 00.58.11

Naoki and Kotoko are back! I am so grateful for this special episode as I have missed them since Season 1 ~ Enjoy this episode while waiting for Season 2. 

Our couple is aboard a plane – direction Okinawa for they honeymoon. Naoki pretends to sleep while Kotoko tries to be fancy and speak English when the stewardess asks her what she wants to drink. Kotoko’s cute and broken English draws laughter from one of her neighbors.

Naoki also comments on Kotoko speaking English. Why is she trying so hard? This is only a trip to Okinawa. Kotoko explains that it’s her first time flying and goes on a rant… She also starts snapping pictures of Naoki, who is always being a party pooper – not smiling in the pictures and deciding to take a nap instead.
