Sasaki Fusai no Jingi Naki Tatakai 佐々木夫妻の仁義なき戦い Ep. 4 Screen Caps
Ritsuko played by Koyuki (Antique, Kimi wa Pet) asks Norimichi played by Inagaki Goro (Hanazakari no Kimitachi e, SMAPxSMAP) where he got the pocket watch that she replaced for him, because it’s only available overseas. He pauses then replies that he received it from a professor in college. She wonders about his reply but Norimichi suggests that they make-up, but Ritsuko mistakes his plan as going out for a celebratory drink when her friend Inoki played by Furuta Arata (Saito-san, Tokyo Friends) phones she rushes out. It’s been 1 year 7 months and 20 days and Norimichi wonders if they’ll ever have a proper married life again. Norimichi goes over his marriage notes again in self pity; Ritsuko arrives home right at 6am to deliver breakfast to her husband, an energy drink she picked up in the bar.
This was a perfect episode, with lots of laughs. I loved the scene on the train when he cramped up from the drink that Ritsuko brought home from the bar and he finally wound up flat against the door. It was terrific seeing them disagree and not spend a lot of screen time bickering. The supporting cast showed their strength especially Hajime played by Koide Keisuke (Nodame Cantabile, Oishii Proposal) who almost ruins things for Norimichi in his efforts to set things right.
