Story
Real estate agent Sagenya Machi has finished selling the last house on a row of previously vacant houses by the sea. She and her business partner Yashiro Hajime who is now her husband spend their last day at Sanchi Real Estate. Their married life is shrouded in mystery. A shady-looking person spies on them from a hiding place. It is the strikingly handsome Rusudo Kenji who will later stand in Machi’s way and raise a storm at Teiko Real Estate. But at this moment, no one has any inkling of this turbulent development. Meanwhile, at the Bar Chi Chin Pui Pui in Tokyo, Niwano Seiji and Adachi Satoshi hold a small party for Fuse Makoto to thank him for his service. He has just become a contract employee after reaching the mandatory retirement age. All of their minds are on Machi and Yashiro who are due to return to Teiko Real Estate’s Shinjuku office next week in response to a fervent appeal from the company. Niwano, the “Sanchi dog”, eagerly waits for Machi to come back. Adachi feels that his position as chief and ace of the office will be threatened by her return. Fuse, who had served as the manager but saw sales drop substantially, has a great weight lifted off his shoulders. On the very day that Machi and Yashiro come back, the atmosphere at the Shinjuku office which had been pleasant until a day ago turns tense. She is in full sales mode from Day 1 and become a work fiend again. Yashiro in the meantime has a new headache regarding his relationship with Machi since she is his wife, subordinate and company saviour all rolled into one. An angsty Adachi falls into a slump because of Machi’s return. One day, he has an encounter with Rusudo who calls himself a freelance real estate agent. It is stimulating and also seems predestined. He feels a flutter that he has never experienced before. Then Rusudo finally makes a move on a customer and the invincible Machi suffers a loss at his hands. This spurs her to strike back.
