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
