Matsui Rena

By the way, do you know Yamaki-san?


Yeah I do.

That person who is super touchy.

He came?

He came yesterday and

wouldn't stop touching.

Isn't he totally disgusting?

Where did he touch you?

Around here... isn't he

seriously disgusting?


How should I handle this, Mr. Chairman?

Handle what?

About sending a gift to

Legislator Kakinuma's daughter.

Since this is a wedding

gift, is a clock okay?

This tastes bad.

[Shinozaki Zenzou]

Hey, have you seen my wallet?

Didn't you forget it at home?

I definitely brought it. It's a Louis

Vuitton I got from Itoi-san on my birthday.

No way.

Itoi-san, wasn't he Saori's customer?


My bad Saori for taking him, even

though you have so few already.

I refused at first but Itoi-san insisted.

Want it?

I don't want it.

I've finished cleaning the closest.

Oh, are you done already?

I can't eat this, it's too salty!

And you used flavor enhancers didn't you?

I'm so sorry!

I'll come again on Monday,

so next time I'll...


Then when should I come?

You're fired.


Mr. Chairman, about the

factory in Indonesia.

You too.


You're fired too.

Constantly blabbering about trivial things.

If you want to chat that badly,

call your mother back home.

Send me an order of your

finest sushi immediately.

"Who is this?" Can't you

recognize my voice?

It's Shinozaki Zenzou!

Bring it immediately!

Good grief!

Will he be okay on his own?

Like I care.

There's a reason he has no family

or friends that cares about him.

If he wasn't the Chairman, he'd

be just a stubborn old man.

He was always careful about his health,

but recently he's become even more strict.

I wonder what happened?

Shitty old man. Nobody will be

happy if you live for a long time!

You're too loud!

[Help me]

Don't act big when you only

have this much, you ugly b*tch.

Stealing is a bad habit, Saori-chan.

If you need money that badly, change jobs.

There's no need to earn money this slowly,

I'll introduce you to a good store.

Ah yes, the host that deceived you...

was it Shinya?

They seem to have found him.

He's probably fish food by now.

It can't be helped since he

took money from the group.

Scary, isn't it?

But I'm part of a normal financial

institution, so I'm a conscientious person.

What's so funny?

What was his name again... Takahiro was it?

Maybe I should talk to him?

You looked into him?

Stop being so irresponsible then.

1 million yen is

about $8,300 or 6,800)

Including interest, give me 1

million yen by the weekend.

Otherwise, I'll make you

work in a soapland.

Ramune flavor.

Please come again.

Sorry for the wait.


Reading a book?


What happens in it?

It's about a lion.


Was the grandma's wallet not enough?

Do you want money that badly?

Call the police if you want.

Can you drive a car?


I'm asking if you have a driver's license.

I do, but what's with you?


You're hired.

What are you saying?

I'll buy 100 hours of your

time for a million yen.

It's much better than stealing right?

100 hours... 1 million yen?


No, I can't do perverted things like that.

Where did you even get that idea from?

I have a bad leg.

I need someone to carry

my bag while I travel.


I'm traveling to Tokyo to give

a present to my daughter.

I want to stop by several

places on the way.

How about it?

If you refuse, we're going

straight to the police.

So damn slow.

Hey, what's inside this thing?


It feels too heavy for just that.

Also money.


I just tried to steal from you and

you're making me carry your money?

The money is only a small amount to me.

But if you do it again, I'll definitely

find you and hand you over to the police.

I'll have no problem finding you.

Just who are you?

Why are you making me do this?

Someone like you is perfect.

Yes. I found someone perfect.

I'll call you again later.

Did you talk about your life

story while renting a car?

Blame him.

I am so sorry for the wait. Are

you traveling with your father?

Of course not.


Have safe trip! Please be careful.

Drive more carefully.

I can't help it since it's been awhile.

Head in the direction of Tokyo for now.

Yes, yes.

Too noisy.

It's too noisy, turn it off.



Do you have hearing problems

you shitty old man.

Watch your mouth.

Your name, what should I call you?

You don't need to know.

Tell me already, or I'll

just call you old man.

It's Shinozaki. And you are?


Hey, you really giving me 1 million yen?

Speak to me respectfully.

Are you really going to

pay me 1 million yen?


I'll give it to you in 4 days,

once we safely arrive in Tokyo.

But if you're rich, can't you have

others like family help you instead?

Why hire someone like me?

And for 1 million yen too.

Don't ask questions.

Just do as you're told.

Once we get to Tokyo,

you'll let me go right?

Yes, do as you wish.

I see.

Where are we going first?

We're almost there.

Excuse me, do you know where she went?


What are you doing?

Waiting here.

You're coming too.

I'll pass, it's too much of a hassle.

You can't refuse. Don't forget you're

my driver and my luggage holder.

For 24 hours a day you'll obey me,

drive the car and carry my luggage.

You're to do exactly as you're

told, like you're a puppet.

That's why you're getting

paid 10,000 an hour. Got it?

What an irritating lecture.

Did you say something?

I didn't.



Give me the bag.

[Ending blessing]

How subtle.

If you get a fortune like ending blessing,

you don't know how to react to it.

Shut up.


Subtle again.

Hey, how many are you going to draw?

Until I win.

Win? You mean getting a great blessing?

Are you stupid?

Go over there.


Tie these up over there.

[Middle blessing]


Excuse me...

You're not supposed to

draw that many fortunes.

I've visited here many

times before in the past.

Thank you for your patronage.

But I've always lost. Is a

winning one even inside?

By a winning one, you mean..?

Great blessing.

It's not about winning or losing.

Fortunes are about understanding

the significance of each one.

I built a company called

Esumaru Fuzu from nothing.

I obtained money, power, and fame.

In other words, my life has

been extremely successful.

So a great blessing should come out for me.

Because otherwise, that means

that this shrine is a fraud.

Fraud? You...

What's with this piece of paper?

It costs 1 to make doesn't it?

But swindling people 100 for it.

Some old man, who reeks of cigarettes, pushes

one button to mass produce this right?

Even knowing that, I continue

giving you my money.

You have a problem with that?

What a troublesome person.

Is a great blessing even inside?

Look, I got great blessing! Wow!

Let's go.

[Small blessing]

[Great blessing]

Great blessing!

Great blessing!

I finally got it. Let's go! Bring my bag.
