Kotoko is ecstatic to start her nursing courses, especially with the nursing department adjacent to the medical one. More Naoki stalking.
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 cute and nice Tomoko
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.
The handsome Motoki. A man who feels like a woman deep down and a fan of Naoki!
Naoki and Kotoko congratulate Matsumoto at the end of her graduation ceremony. Matsumoto questions Kotoko about her acceptance to nursing school. Everyone thinks that Kotoko wants to be a nurse because of Naoki, including the latter. Kotoko is shocked, but clearly can’t deny that it’s mostly true. Kotoko is excited and proud to announce that she has been accepted into nursing school! She passed the most difficult entrance exam for nursing school. Yuko is surprised, but mostly worried for Kotoko’s patients. I am too.
Yuko found her dream job in the IT industry and vows to work hard to find Mr. Perfect. That is definitely not . Matsumoto thanks Naoki for making her college years fun and wishes the best of luck to our couple.
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.
It’s Kotoko’s last year as an undergraduate. Her friends Jinko and Satomi seem to have their paths set while Kotoko still doesn’t know what she wants to do. Our main character wonders if it is alright to stay at home and not get a job at all.
Kinosuke’s love interest, Christine, finally arrives at Tonan University! Her encounter with Kotoko is a mix and match of broken English and Japanese. Seeing that Christine is a foreigner, Kotoko immediately tells her that she doesn’t speak English. To which Chris responds in Japanese. Christine is like the foreign version of Kotoko. They are both so bubbly.
Chris and Kotoko head to Tonan Medical School to visit Naoki. They first meet Seichi – another medical student and Naoki’s rival. Kotoko is excited when she introduces herself as Naoki’s wife. Seichi is not that impressed. Is Kotoko really the one in Genius Naoki’s heart?! Seichi rudely looks at Kotoko from head to toe. Luckily, Chris is here to get revenge for Kotoko. When Seichi tries to hit on her, she lets him know that he is DEFINITELY not her type. She has HIGH standards.
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.
