From 10.00 p.m., Tuesdays, 18 April 2017
Miyoshi Mitsu who works at an eye clinic as an administrator, is asked to go out by a patient called Watanabe Ryota. He is a nice man who puts her first and they have the same taste in food. Even though he is completely different from the popular guys she had dated in the past, she feels comfortable with him. He even cares about her mother who runs a bar in her hometown and is dedicated to his job. He is a good catch as a husband and she could not have asked for anything more. But her first love is Arishima Koki whom she liked in elementary and junior high school. The one who moved out one day without telling her. After that, Mitsu had dated men who look like Arishima and even now, her eyes still unintentionally follow men who resemble him. During junior high school, she was told by a fortune teller that she should marry her second love and this has remained in her mind all this while. When she revisits the fortune teller, she is once again told that she should marry her second love to be happy … … Wanting to be happy, Mitsu decides to get married to Ryota and they receive blessings from many people. She thinks that lots of women get a happy marriage as they compromise somewhere to get married but … … One day, Mitsu happens to meet Arishima Koki whom she believed was the man of her destiny on the way back from a drinking party. Her heart begins to shake greatly.
