From 8.00 p.m., Fridays, 23 October 2015
Hamasaki Densuke, a newly-hired employee who has joined the big construction company Suzuki Construction, is assigned to the Third Sales Division led by Sasaki Kazuo. The construction industry is enjoying a boom as the country prepares for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Hama-chan has loved fishing since childhood. It is not that he has no motivation to work, but because he tends to bring his feelings about fishing that constantly angers his boss Sasaki. There is also Asamoto Shinichitaro, the eternal deputy of the division, who is the complete opposite of Hama-chan and hates big game fishing. One day, Hama-chan invites an exhausted elderly man at a dry river bed to go fishing for a diversion and gives his contact information. That night, he meets Kobayashi Michiko again at his regular diner which serves set meals after they had quarreled on the streets several days ago. Hama-chan is moved by the delicious food that Michiko prepared when he receives a call on his mobile phone. The man from the daytime has called to accept his invitation to go fishing. Hama-chan is completely ignorant of the fact that this man called Su-san is Suzuki Ichinosuke, the president of his company, as they go out fishing … … Then Suzuki learns that Hama-chan is an employee of Suzuki Construction and consults a friend about this peculiar friendship. After brooding over his friend’s words that it will break up someday, Suzuki declares to Hama-chan that he is giving up fishing. They get into a big argument and end up parting ways … …
