NISHIKAWA Miwa

Ichizawa

Happy 5th Anniversary

Unbelievable

How this jerk's place lasts 5 years

My third place is failing

Evening

- Come right in!

- In the back

The difference is up here

You opened too many places

You're absolutely right,

so, please, pay me back

the money I loaned you

It's so great that your brain

is always a clean slate

You don't have a single thought,

just do whatever

Satoko tells you and you're fine

Sounds like easy street to me

Yoko, are you finished?

Don't you get it?

I just act like my wife's in charge

Really?

Don't "really" me

Here, eat your tomato

- Oh, so tasty

- Oh, so tasty

Give me the creeps

What'll it be?

Shochu?

You've had enough

Hand me the menu

Cut it out

Why?

One order steamed clams

Squid

Coming right up

Two drafts for you

Excuse me

Yes

Master, shochu with water

Shochu with...

Honey, honey

I'll pee myself

It's right over there

I'm sorry

Run!

Kan!

Satoko!

Get up!

Get up

Let's get out!

Where's the boss?

Boss! Boss!

Dreams fr Sale

He spilled it

The landlord said no?

He's scared of restaurants now

Don't wait, get started again now

Even if you just rent a small place

Serves you right...

Pathetic

Step up...

to a better location...

Right?

What's left of the insurance

and the little we'd saved

Take this to his wife again tomorrow

It's so little he'd spend it

on one night out

I can't, they're your savings...

Enough

Otherwise, you'll just

mope around forever

Here, feels better, right?

It was like this 10 years ago

Nothing to be afraid of

It's not long

Together, it'll go by in a flash

There...

Ramen

That's right

You're good

That's right, that's right

And stock it in that container

That's right

The barbecued pork in here

Tell me when you're low

If they order soy sauce ramen,

it's one spoon of this

And if they want extra oil,

If they order less, then half

See the mark on the spoon?

If you just fill it up to there,

that'll be fine

Come right in!

Not so rough,

you'll damage the fish

I'm sorry

Watch it

Excuse me, isn't this

sea bream spoiled?

No, we just got that yesterday

But you can't...

Serve it simmered in broth,

don't waste it

But it's just plain spoiled

It's beyond saving by simmering

Look at the eyes,

and it's lost its shimmer

It doesn't feel right

Shall we compare it

to today's fish?

He's a total pain

Listen, mister

I didn't ask you to lecture me

Just do as you're told

I'm sorry but I won't

handle this fish

I couldn't face

our former master

What century do you live in?

Oh, all right

Let's toss it

Are you happy now?

There, it's tossed

Calm down!

Ichizawa

Give it to me

Did you fight?

He doesn't know how to cook

Here?

Ouch

Miyakubo Police Box

Excuse me

Ichizawa?

Remember me? Hino

What? Why? Do you live nearby?

We just moved here, into

an apartment in Sakaecho

Isn't your restaurant in Toranomon?

Yeah, it's a little far but we can't

afford to buy in that area

My wife won't buy unless it's new

Your business is great

How's Akie?

Do you still cook together?

You'd think but as soon as it got going,

she said she hated standing so much

She's even got studs in her nail polish

these days, disgusting

Everyday she goes to health spas, golf

and even pole dancing, whatever that is

Women have it so easy

Hey, is your place nearby?

No, it's a little ways away

A little ways away

I bet it's doing fine

Somebody told me it's great

We do OK

Show me your place

I'll stop by for real

Come, I'll contact you

I'll email

Email, you know my address?

Yeah, sure

Give my best to Akie

Give Akie my best

Akie? Oh, right, see you

Bye bye

Thanks

Thank you!

Any word from Takeshita san?

No, it's hopeless

I'm sure there's

gossip about me

Chefs turn over so fast,

you'll get another offer soon

You wanted me to work

at Takeshita's place?

That place is sh*t

What do you see in it?

Really? I don't know

I've never been there

Yeah? Then, I'll tell you

That place is sh*t

Worse than sh*t

I understand

No, you don't

Maybe you think as long as they

pay you they're all the same

But you're lucky

You can work in this mediocre

ramen shop and feel nothing

Hey, don't say that

I'll have a beer

Sure

Please, drink at home

It's on the house

Thanks

Sato does a great job

Thank you

Thanks

Damn, that's good

He's a good man

Yes

He's nice?

You let him call you "Sato"

It's fine, you should

marry someone like him

What is it?

I don't satisfy you?

No, of course you satisfy me

I'm the one that doesn't

satisfy you

I bet you think you got stuck

with the short end of the stick

If you stay with the likes of me,

nothing good will come of it

Yo!

Come right in!

Please, come in

One BBQ pork ramen

Me, too

Fried rice for me

That was tasty, thanks!

Half a fried rice

And 3 fired dumplings

Another fried rice

Yes

And half a rice

Open your eyes, Daddy!

You promised to take us

to the hot springs!

We'll go

I'm here to see him,

representing the company

But his sudden downturn yesterday

has upset his family

Only his family is allowed

How long do I have to wait?

When he improves

Will he improve?

I don't think he will improve

I'll handle this

You're Mutsushima san?

My brother told me about you,

right before he

lost consciousness

My brother and I

didn't have secrets

I think he just had to tell

someone about you

But I don't think

my sister-in-law

or my nieces need to find out

What is this?

It's, it's from my brother

In case he never

saw you again

The last train will depart

from Track #1

Are you OK?

I think that was the last train

Are you OK

I'm sorry, I'm sorry

I'm fine, fine

Hey!

It's you, Master!

Hey, I went to your place today...

What the hell happened

It was all burned to a crisp

What happened?

You came?

With Tonoike san?

Who?

Section Chief Tonoike

Are you OK?

I'm closing the station

I'm sorry

Oh, hey, hey...

Why? Why?

Oops, I'm sorry

I'm sorry, sh*t

I'm sorry, what the...
