Is Love Sustainable? (2022) s01e07 Episode Script

Episode 7

"The number you have dialled is not available, please leave a message after the tone"
No good, went straight to voicemail.
His LINE messages aren't getting read either.
Did you have a fight with Hayate during the camping trip?
No, we were having fun, but
In any case let's eat. Hayate made it for us after all.
I guess so. Dad, here's the tea.
It was delicious! I'm tired, but thank you.
Please reply whenever you can.
They should worry about me a little less.
If you've read my messages
I guess that means you're okay.
Higashimura Seita
Hello? Can you talk now?
Yes, I'm fine.
Uh, your water bottle ended up in my bag.
Oh, I'm sorry.
What should I do with it? If you need it for work
- I can bring it tomorrow
- Oh, that's okay.
Uhm Next time we see each other
Next time we meet?
His stuff is all gone. He left suddenly.
Fuwa-san didn't say anything?
That's right.
Um that
Did you say anything?
I don't expect us to get married.
Will you go out with me?
Aah! No.
No one knows about us yet.
When I came home all I saw was my father.
Oh, Sawada-san
I see.
Okay, I'll call you later.
Okay. Good night.
Was that Hayate?
What? No, it wasn't.
Eh a different person.
I can't take it.
Hey, have you heard from Hayate? It's been three days!
What? He called in to work to take some time off.
Oh, my phone.
- Where's my phone?
- Ah! Déjà vu.
- There it is!
- Come on!
- I'm off.
- Have a good day.
What's for dinner?
Good work. Oh Instagram.
Oh, can you to teach me some tips on how to use Instagram for my students
Yup, he just posted.
- The airport?
- Maybe it's a chance
When they get their heart broken,
they go on a trip.
Fuwa Hayate: 1 new message with 3 photos and 1 video
Kyoka, Bonjour!
I'm sorry I didn't call.
I'll talk to you when I get back.
Looking forward to it. Bye.
Is this France?
Did you miss me?
For now, I'm glad you're doing well.
I'll bring back some souvenirs.
Looking forward to it.
Bonjour, monsieur.
Oh! Eric.
It's been a while!
Wait, wait, wait!
Yokoso, France.
Thank you for inviting me.
- Am I right?
- You're good.
It's the perfect job for you.
I thought it would be a big chance to get closer to your dream.
I'm glad you remembered.
Of course I do.
But you know,
my dad, he's the CEO,
so he's going to be the one deciding.
And he's very demanding.
So good luck!
I'm not going back to Japan until he hires me.
You haven't changed at all.
S'il vous plait
Oui, monsieur.
I'm not one to give up on anything.
- For me?
- Yes.
This is sudden, but we'd really like you to come to our wedding, Higashimura-san.
It's all thanks to Higashimura-san
that I'm getting married.
I didn't do much.
I'd be happy to celebrate with you.
Thank you so much. I'm really glad I joined your agency.
She's my 63rd.
I told her honestly that I've been rejected 62 times.
And she said, "How can they not see how attractive you are?"
She got even angrier than I did.
I really felt she was on my side.
Marriage means having more supporters.
I'm happy.
I'm really happy for you.
Actually, she was fine to just do a wedding photo shoot.
But her parents wanted to have a wedding, so we're having one.
Marriage not just for the person you're marrying,
it's also for the other person's family.
I want to make them happy as well.
Of course.
That's what she taught me.
My 59th
Sawada Kyoka.
How is Sawada-san by the way?
she cancelled her membership.
I see.
I hope she finds happiness too.
I'm going to ask you directly.
Is there anything you are unhappy about our studio?
I can't help but think that from the way you've been acting lately.
Well, actually
I've been thinking about it a lot.
I've been thinking of quitting the studio and starting my own business.
I've been your student, since the beginning, Vanessa.
For everything you've taught me, all this time
I'm very grateful.
I just
how do I say
I knew it
I thought it was strange that you turned down moving up to management.
I'm sorry.
If that's the case, I'll support you.
That's how I got to where I am too.
Honestly, thank you so much.
Did you think I've been harassing you all this time?
Oh, no.
Oh, I'm meeting a friend who's also our consultant for dinner today.
- Would you like to join us?
- Is that okay?
Thank you.
My going independent, the boss approved it!
I'm going to have dinner with the boss!
Oh, that's right, can you call Mom?
I left my math book at her place, can you ask her to get it?
- Math?
- Yeah.
That's great!
Hmm what? Math?
Can we do it tomorrow morning?
I'm going out to eat now, so I'll probably be late.
What? Vanessa-san, you're a "Batsu-2" (divorced twice)?
Can you say "Maru-3" (married 3 times) instead?
I'm sorry.
It's more dishonest to stay married to someone you don't like, isn't it?
As soon as the love is gone, I'll say goodbye honestly.
- Honest goodbye?
- Yes.
- Oh, I'm sorry I'm late!
- Working hard?
- Oh, hello.
- I'm Takamizawa.
- Kyoka-sensei?
- Yes, I'm Sawada Kyoka.
Do I know you from somewhere?
- What?
- Have you met?
No, nevermind, I'm sorry.
Brother, brother Can you bring another one of the same?
- Right away.
- Ah, wait, wait
- and some blue cheese?
- And?
Well, I don't want to charge too much for the lessons.
It's a business, not volunteer work.
- Eh?
- Eh, that's normal.
But using an Indian restaurant,
during its idle time, and sharing the premises for yoga classes,
is a good idea to keep costs low.
By the way, are you married?
What? Married?
Sorry I have to ask, we women have to stick together, so it's good to get it out of the way, right?
I want to start my own business,
but I am in a relationship without marriage expectations.
- No expectations of marriage?
- Yes.
What kind of man is he?
He's a normal guy, sincere and kind.
No expectations of marriage, seriously?
I get you. I have the same condition too.
Next time, I'm not thinking about marriage.
Next time?
I'm "Batsu-1" (divorced once) with a child.
He has custody of the child.
Although I do see him often.
Well, I
have trouble balancing work and family.
My kid I think he'd be happier with my ex.
friend is in a similar situation.
Even after the breakupthey're still in contact with each other.
That's nice isn't it? When we were a couple, we fought a lot.
But one thing
We would never hurt the child, that was a rule I made sure we followed.
I just wanted him to be happy.
For myself,
I've decided on that rule to protect him.
I see. So many things to consider.
What did you say that with a Kansai dialect?
Well, I'm married to an Australian.
I'm half Osaka, half Tokyo. Double yamon (another Kansai expression)
Come on, Kyoka, come on.
Let's drink!
Vanessa is babbling on about how interesting her background is.
Are you okay?
So, I'll be consulting with her again in the future.
First of all, I was thinking of looking for a place to set up a studio.
I think I can help with that.
The Marriage agency I work at,
as I've said before, it's got a new division that does real estate.
I've actually worked in real estate for longer.
You're against it?
No, I appreciate it, but
I don't know if I should be taking advantage
Because we
Please go ahead.
Shall we set some rules?
First of all, no matter what happens
Nijiro-kun comes first.
Thank you very much.
Okay, then. For you, Kyoka, work comes first.
- Going independent should be your priority right now.
- Thank you very much.
Let's both work hard,
on our relationship.
To keep it going.
May I add something?
Not only Nijiro, but Sawada-san as well.
Let's not tell them about us.
- My father won't
- He'll be worried.
If he finds out that you're going out with a "Batsu-1" with a child
- But I don't care about that
- One more thing.
If you ever want to get married one day
Don't worry about it.
When the time comes, we'll end this.
Is there any other rule you'd like to set?
That's my drink
Ahh, I'm really
Well, then
We don't have to decide on every rule for now.
That's very helpful for a sloppy person like me.
I have one more favor to ask.
Next time
I'd like to go on a date with you.
We have found a potential match.
andU Marriage Agency support agent:
Dear Hinata, regarding our conversation
"He's social and enjoys touring."
"For a detailed profile, go to My page"
So troublesome.
andU person in charge
Thank you for the introduction.
I'd love to
Good evening, Sawada.
Should I omit a greeting or not?
This is Hinata. I found your radio interview "extremely" interesting.
she is using an old expression used by Rintaro in the previous episode.
Let's talk about it more on our next walk. I'd love to hear more about it.
See you later.
"A Formal Request"
Dear sir. It is early summer.
With regards to Sir Sawada,
it pleases me to know that both your legs and your back are in the best of health.
Now, on this occassion, I have a favor to ask of you.
For which, in turn, I have sent you this email.
In the not too distant future, I, Hinata Akari
am wondering, if you would be so kind as to go on a date with me?
Why didn't you say "I'm home." when you got back?
Because Dad, when you work, you can't hear anything.
So, what date?
- You're back to marriage hunting?
- No, I'm not! It's just a date.
I wish Kyoka would would come home with at least a date.
You know what, I'm also
I'm tired. I'm tired.
- Good morning, Niji.
- Good morning.
Here, put on your shoes.
Nijiro, your hat.
- Ah!
- Here you go.
- Thanks for coming.
- What's up?
You always wear sweats on your days off.
Oh, I'm going shopping.
- Yeah.
- Oh, shopping, eh?
- I'm off!
- See you later.
After shopping, then a restaurant with the night view?
Or is she the type of girl who likes more secluded places?
How would I know?
It's fine. We're allowed to go out with other people
We'll support each other, go for it.
1st sticker: I'm sorry
2nd sticker Please wait!
I'm sorry! Is it OK if we could meet up 30 minutes later instead?
I'm sorry I'm late.
You didn't have to rush.
Because you would have waited here the whole day.
There's no need to rush.
Let's just hang out wherever you want.
I want to go to
Seita-san's favorite places.
My favorite places?
Please take me to all of them today.
Well what? Hmmm
Favorite places?
- Anywhere!
- Anywhere?
- Anywhere!
- Favorite places?
I, Hinata Akari
would you be so kind as to go on a date with me?
Don't get too excited.
"More precisely, I would like to ask you to practice dating with me."
"I've hit a dead end with my marriage hunting."
First it was choosing the right man,
but now marriage hunting to me,
is a situation I find truly unbearable.
- I'm sorry to keep you waiting.
- Me as well.
I know I am asking a lot. Please take care of me.
That's great.
You can speak normally now.
Oh, the e-mail.
I'm sorry, I was aware that you're a lexicographer.
- Suddenly I didn't know what to write
- Normal language is fine.
Rather, we should be using words that
people living in present day would normally use.
I'm sorry.
No, it's my pleasure.
Please take care of me today.
- I look forward to it.
- Ah
Is this place okay with you?
The calligraphy exhibition. Yes.
By any chance have you ever been here before?
No, it's my first time. I don't usually
- Is that so?
- Yes.
Oh, good.
Let's go.
I want one of these, but I'm afraid Nijiro will break it.
I didn't know Seita was such a fan of interior design.
I always liked houses.
- Houses?
- I like architecture.
After I got certified as an interior coordinator,
I applied to design firms, but I couldn't get in.
So I thought selling houses wasn't so bad, and became a real estate agent.
Oh, I see.
And then before I knew it
I became a marriage counselor.
But I was thinking earlier, this job isn't so bad either.
I've been invited to a wedding tomorrow.
Do you remember Segawa-san?
- Oh, the one with the dango.
- Yes.
I'm so glad. He got married?
Yes. He said it was thanks to you.
No, I didn't do anything.
Making people happy, that's a good job, isn't it?
I guess
What should we do for lunch?
Other things I like
- Curry's the only thing I really like.
- Curry is fine.
No, no, no. Since you came all the way here
Iwish I had something I was passionate about.
Like what yoga is to you.
I don't have anything I love that much.
I'm so boring.
That's not true.
Well, anyway
Let's find something tasty around here.
Oh, there's a good Italian place nearby.
Daikanyama Memorial Park
The weather's nice, isn't it?
Over here, over here.
The oldest Chinese characters from ancient times
were often inscribed on turtle shells and animal bones.
hence they were called "koukotsu moji", and.
By any chance, because of my bone fetish, you thought I would like these koukotsu moji?
I'm sorry. To find something in common between you and me,
I could only come up with this.
It was boring, wasn't it?
Well, to be honest
I don't really know what's going on.
I'm happy.
There are more excerpts over here.
Wow, this is really a great selection.
- Cheers!
- Cheers!
It feels so good.
Lunch in the park was spot on.
Is this what you really like?
I do like it.
- You like it.
- Yes..
But we'll have to think about dinner.
That's fine.
Let's just go with what we feel when the time comes.
Oh, ants!
These ants are all female.
- No way.
- It's true.
Then How old do you think they are?
How do you know how old ants are?
They're all old grandmothers.
If you look closely
Look at her belly, you can see the wrinkles.
No way!
I'm kidding.
As it's dangerous outside, they take are of the young ones in the safety of their nests.
So only the grandmothers work outside.
Seita-san, you say you don't like anything.
But you like living things, don't you?
because of Nijiro's influence. I go to the zoo a lot.
As we were starting to go out
I found it interesting and really liked it.
But this kind of knowledge isn't really useful for anything.
But it's fun.
It's not boring at all.
It was boring, wasn't it?
Yes, but
It was more interesting than I expected.
Which one? The turtle shell? Or the cow shoulder?
- Uhm
- Oh, the one from the wild boar?
The calligraphy exhibition's Rintaro was very interesting.
- "Extremely" so
- "Extremely"
You know, when I'm with you, Rintaro, I'm having fun.
I don't know why, but when I'm with marriage prospects,
I don't have fun.
That's because you don't want to marry me,
it's fun because it's easier that way.
No, I don't think so.
No, that's not what I meant.
It's no good. I'm over 40.
I've had my fair share of relationships.
But once it came to marriage hunting, I don't know
Your wife How did you and your wife get married?
Well, it wasn't a normal marriage for me.
No, no. I'm not explaining it well.
I wonder is there some kind of trick to getting married?
The secret to getting the hang of it,
is essentially the bone.
- Right.
- Even though we all have the same skeleton
But the shape of the bones differs from person to person, doesn't it?
- That's right.
- So, the secret to marriage
or going out with someone
is something I don't really know.
But I think getting the hang of it is how you deal with yourself.
Really? Within yourself?
You're going to be spending a long time in a relationship with someone.
You should be honest with yourself and not accept something you're not going to like.
Be honest to yourself
Yes, that's right.
It's better not to do what you don't want to do.
Well, if you only do what you like
I'll have to take you to the calligraphy exhibition.
What? My chest.
- What's wrong?
- I'm fine.
Ahh, who would have known, deep breathing feels good.
I think I might like yoga.
I've never done it before. Sorry.
So you're slowly building up a liking for it.
Seita, you're much better at yoga than I am.
That's ridiculous
Because yoga is about feeling and enjoying the moment.
I thought buses were just a way to get to where you're going.
For the longest time.
But Seita
I thought it'd be better if we just got on the first bus that came along,
without deciding where to go.
Compared to my previous self
I've always set goals and worked hard.
Otherwise, I wouldn't get anything done.
My room is a mess.
How would you say
I think I've lived my life with a purpose.
I'm still thinking about being independent.
I respect that.
That's why, when I get on the bus
I either sleep or check my phone.
I also thought it would be a waste if I didn't study entrepreneurship.
So admirable~
But Seita can take a bus just for the sake of enjoyment.
I never thought of it that way.
Yeah, that's how Nijiro felt when he took the bus,
He used to ride the bus all the time.
Being a father is fun, isn't it?
For me
Being with you now,
makes me happy.
Nijiro-kun, and Seita,
I love you both.
Did I wake you?
Oh, I'm sorry.
Excuse me.
Hello? What's wrong?
Oh, it can't be helped then. I understand.
I'll be right there. Okay.
Oh, I'm sorry.
My ex-wife was supposed to have Nijiro for today,
but she suddenly has to go to work.
I need to pick him up now.
I have to go home now.
I'm really sorry.
No, Nijiro comes first.
Okay, then
Let's put it away.
I'll get that.
- Sorry for the wait.
- Sorry, my client's having trouble.
Oh, no problem.
There he goes again. Nijiro, sorry, see you later.
Okay. Bye-bye.
See you.
- What did you do?
- We saw a movie.
Oh, I see.
Oh, LINE message!
It's Kyoka.
She's nearby. What a coincidence!
You look energetic.
Since we're here
Let's have dinner somewhere together.
Sounds good.
Whatever you like, Nijiro, anything is fine!
- What do you like?
- Yay! Then curry.
- Anything but curry.
- But that's what I like.
- No
- Curry is fine.
- What kind of curry do you want?
- I want home made curry.
- What?
- At least, not at home.
- Let's go to a restaurant instead.
- But I don't want any of that.
If it's Dad's curry
We already had it at camp the time.
- I want to eat Kyoka's curry.
- What?
What kind of curry do you cook?
Uhm, I think I want that too.
But it's really normal.
I'm not really a good cook.
Don't worry. It's hard to make a bad curry.
- Hey, Nijiro!
- The pressure
Excuse me.
I'll go ahead.
I need to clean up the place first.
You and Nijiro can take your time.
Uh, sure.
Ugh, the dry cleaning.
I'm sorry.
The suit I'm wearing to the wedding tomorrow,
I left them at the dry cleaners.
What should I do?
If you don't mind, we can pick it up.
And you clean up the house while we're at it.
I'm hungry.
This way?
- Welcome.
- I'm here to pick up.
Please wait a moment.
Miki's mom.
Nice to meet you,
you must be Nijiro's mum.
Oh, I'm
She's not my mom. She's a friend of my dad's.
I see.
Mom's at work right now.
Tomorrow I stay over at Mom's place.
Mom's place?
Oh, I see.
That must be difficult, Nijiro.
It's not.
We live in the same condominium. She's right there.
- Same condominium?
- Yeah.
That's unusual, isn't it?
- It's a little more progressive than usual.
- I guess you could they're progressive.
Progressive. Yes, progressive. Progressive.
What does "Progressive" mean?
That's nice, Nijiro-kun.
You get to live in two homes, I'm envious.
Your mom's place
It's got a great view, right?
Yes, I can see Mt. Fuji.
What did you and Mom do today?
We went to a movie.
Because Dad falls asleep as soon as it gets dark.
We don't go to the cinema.
But, your dad likes the zoo, right?
That's nice, having Daddy and Mommy.
You get to play twice as much.
Excuse me.
Is my suit ready?
I just got it.
Good evening.
Thank you very much.
No, this is nothing at all.
Bon appétit.
- Delicious!
- Delicious!
- Really?
- Yeah!
With this, even Dad can eat carrots.
- Yeah
- That's great!
I grated carrots and put them in to speed things up.
That's how my mother used to make it.
Then, this is the Sawada family curry.
Then, can you make it again with carrots?
Hey, Niji! What.
You got some on your cheek!
Here, here.
Okay, two of you, look here!
Thank you for the food.
Thank you.
Say cheese.
Rock, paper, scissors!
- Ah~
- Ah~
- Want to try the strawberry next?
- Oh, that's nice
Let's take a picture of you two eating strawberries.
Yes. Strawberry!
Say cheese!
- Nijiro just fell asleep.
- He can fall asleep really quickly.
- Just like you.
- Ah!
So this is how you live every day, Seita.
Every day that never happens twice.
Never happens twice?
he'll be a little bigger and different tomorrow.
Well, we'll be older too.
That's why for everything that happened today,
I don't want to forget any of it.
Please take me to all of them today.
The weather's nice, isn't it?
who would have known, deep breathing feels good.
Being with you now,
makes me happy.
Nijiro-kun, and Seita,
I love you both.
I'm not making much sense, am I?
Is it okay?
Just one
picture of the two of us together.
-Okay, then.
- Yeah.
- Ah, I'll walk you down.
- Oh, it's fine.
It's okay.
See you later.
See you later.
Oh, no!
Oh, man, that's not good.
No, no, no, no.
Ah, I'm so tired.
- Kyoka, Kyoka!
- What?
- Thank goodness I made it in time.
- Hmm?
- Here, your phone.
- Oh, my phone. I'm sorry.
At home?
- Where's Nijiro?
- I'll walk you downstairs.
- But the stairs
- Just a little more.
- Good night.
- Good night.
I'm Sawada Kyoka.
Yoga breathing
Your girlfriend teaches Yoga. You're into her, right?
I am in a relationship without marriage expectations.
Does this
go against the rules, I wonder
Congratulations on this occassion.
Thank you very much.
Let me take that.
Thank you for your time today.
I'm pleased to announce the opening of Contigo, a new vacation hotel in Malaysia. I'm Fuwa, the manager.
I'm looking for someone to work with us.
Thank you for your time today.
andU person in charge,
Thank you for your assistance. My name is Hinata.
I have just found someone I would like to meet.
I would like to make an application to see him.
I can't keep going on like this.
I can't not tell her.
Walk your feet up to your hands.
Lift your arms out to the sides.
Exhale, palms together in front of your chest
Feel the calm of the moment.
