Zettai Kareshi絶対彼氏 Ep.4 Screen Caps

Riko played by Aibu Saki (Utahime, Attention Please) rebooted Night played by Hayami Mokomichi (Hataraki Man, Rondo) with a kiss and saved him from the restaurant fire. But when he was rebooted his memory was supposed to be erased, while he has completely forgotten Mika he still knows and recognizes Riko. Namikiri Gaku played by Sasaki Kuranosuke (Shikaotoko Aoniyoshi, Bambino!) is worried and starts testing Night to find out why the odd behaviour occurred. Later at her apartment Riko is watching Namikiri count out her monthly payment on Night, just before the land lady arrives with a present for Night and to collect the rent. Namikiri asks Riko if she’s noticed anything odd since Night was rebooted, she wants to know why Night hasn’t forgotten her as well as Mika when the he was rebooted. Namikiri makes an excuse about smoke exposure during the fire probably caused the error by affecting his memory circuits but that she has nothing to worry about.

Night is becoming more human, at least that’s the way it appears to me. He sometimes seems to be acting as if he truly had emotions and wasn’t just responding to his program. That’s something that the writers will have to convince us of over the remaining episodes in the drama if we want to see a real love triangle storyline develop. No one would choose an appliance over a person they had feelings for, Night will have to have genuine feelings for Rika not just some programmed responses to her ideal boyfriend profile.
