Plot: Episode 3
A delinquent second-year high school student, named Maruyama, likes bossing around freshman, making them take care of his errands and other small stuff. Sakamoto is asked to do one of those errands. Sakamoto’s extraordinally performance makes Maruyama extremely pleased. A steady escalation of Sakamoto’s personal service changes Maruyama from lazy to super lazy, he even feels cumbersome to move his mouth to speak a request. Maruyama orders Sakamoto to do something absolutely eccentric.
As soon as the show starts, a dorky ugly arrogant guy’s face appears on the screen. His name is Maruyama and he is a punk. The scene starts with him criticizing the type of bread, which he had a younger punk bought for him. Maruyama calls himself a behavioral instructor, and appoints Sakamoto to one of the freshman’s league who serves him.
When Maruyama whistle with fingers, Sakamoto rushes to Maruyama’s classroom in the upper floor, carrying a wide range of lunch options, using a drum barrel and mop. Not only that, Sakamoto arranges the food on a plate so that they place neatly, cut in neat triangles. It’s perfect.
When Maruyama orders something to drink, Sakamoto shakes up a fabulous, un-heard-of cocktail using the canned drink from vendor. When Maruyama asks Sakamoto to find him gym clothes because he forgot his own,
Sakamoto whips up a brand-new original design gym clothes by patching up towels. Whatever the job might be, Sakamoto handles is flawlessly. Maruyama soon gets dependent on Sakamoto, and also becomes more and more lazy. Ultimately, he feels lazy even to move his mouth to make a request. Maruyama orders Sakamoto, “Fulfill my wish before I speak about it.”
Maruyama goes to the bathroom. After having finished his business, he realized that the toilet paper is out. Sakamoto quickly rushes to help him.
After school hour, Maruyama heads home, and realizes that his shoes are gone. Looking around, he finds that Sakamoto is warming the shoes using an alcohol lamp. Maruyama grows weary and refuses to put the shoes on. Sakamoto interprets this as the rejection of walking. He pulls up a cart carrying a mop. Maruyama is overwhelmed at this point, and starts running from Sakamoto, who chases after him shouting “Your car is ready, sir!”
Murayama runs into a shack that stores school’s sports equipment. Once he feels safe and private, he texts to 8823 for help. But suddenly, the room falls dark. Sakamoto, probably sneaks in from the small window on the other side of the shack, stands still in front of Maruyama. They are alone… in the dark room… Maruyama gets scared in this unknown situation. Sakamoto whips up a bed using the stacked mattress and offers to sing him a lullaby. Maruyama weeps in panic, shouting “Please, forgive me!”
The scene switches and the screen shows Sakamoto hanging out with another student named Kubota. They eat ramen noodles together at the school cafetria, work on homework together at Kubota’s house, so they seem to be on pretty good terms. Sakamoto is a straight A student. He scored perfect on all subjects, plus, he marked 120 points out of 100 points in PE. On the other hand, Kubota’s score is around 30 points across the subjects. Feeling miserable, Kubota asks Sakamoto to teach him how to study right.
Sakamoto arrives at Kubota’s house. Kubota’s mother falls in love with him at first sight. She cooks roasted turkey for dinner, and purchases a face beauty machine out of the blue. His own mother’s weird behavior makes Kubota nervous about a potential family drama. He asks Sakamoto to hide when his mother is with them. Unfortunately, Kubota just realizes at that point that he left one of his text book at school. He needs that to be benefited from Sakamoto’s tutoring. He dashes back to school to get it.
Sakamoto is left alone with Kubota’s mom. Time for seek-and-hide! Sakamoto proves to be amazingly successful in hiding from Kubota’s mom, taking advantage of his incredible physical ability which is definitely not the level of an ordinal high school student. Unfortunately, while he is hiding in the bath tub, his cell phone rings, Kubota calls him from outside. Kubota’s Mom discovers Sakamoto, but, Sakamoto narrowly escapes her by showering water at her, then he steps out to a deck, where laundry items are hanging from the pole for air drying. He disguises himself as one of those laundry items when Kubota’s mom comes up to the deck searching for him.
Kubota’s mom assumes that Sakamoto has left the house; feeling depressed, she goes back inside the house and starts watching a recorded drama on DVD. Coincidentally, a male actor on the show looks exactly like Sakamoto. Here, Sakamoto quickly comes up with an idea, and feeds his own motion picture and talks to Kubota’s mom through the screen. “I am on this side, unfortunately.”
Kubota’s mom then accepts that Sakamoto is untouchable. She gives up chasing Sakamoto, and so ends her sweet and delicate love story.
You know what… I thought this middle-aged mom’s love story is entirely dedicated to jokes, but, no! I was wrong. The ending was kinda heartbreaking, guys. It surprised me, but, hey.
I heard that the next episode is going to feature a teacher. Man, I can’t help getting excited about the upcoming story. Can you?
