Episode

Just as Fuyu and Itsuki are about to kiss again under the covers, they hear the doorknob click, announcing the return of Kou. Fuyu immediately hurries downstairs and asks Kou where he has been, followed by Itsuki, whom she introduces as a coworker who has been helping her with housework in the meantime. Kou apologizes to Itsuki for troubling her with their family concerns, which the latter dismisses as not being an inconvenience. As Itsuki prepares to leave, Kou notices the earrings that Itsuki is wearing and realizes that they are the same earrings that Fuyu has. Before Itsuki can finally leave, Kou calls her, tells her that he is fine now, and thanks her for helping Fuyu and Tsuki out, although his message seems to have meaning behind it for Itsuki.

In Dynamic Dream, Ro proves to be much stricter than Fuyu and introduces herself as the one now leading the whole project. Later, Fuyu and Itsuki exchanged messages on what happened at Fuyu’s household after Itsuki left. Fuyu tells Itsuki that she and Kou haven’t had a proper conversation yet and went straight to bed right after. Itsuki apologizes to Fuyu without context, prompting the latter to ask why she is apologizing, but Itsuki hesitates to say anything. Ro calls for a meeting despite the team being incomplete, as Ayaka arrived a minute late, and mocks her for using her children as an excuse. Itsuki tries to intervene and asks Ro to consider her words, but Ro continues to embarrass her, as does the Japanese working culture. During the lunch break, Fuyu explains that Ro is considered an ‘honorary male’ or someone who conforms to the male-dominated society or workplace to establish their status. Fuyu shares what she has gone through during her training under Ro, where the latter refuses to acknowledge the end of working hours, continuing to email and expect replies even during weekends. Ro would also give Fuyu impossible tasks to finish and even work on holidays. However, Fuyu wonders why Ro will deliberately go to Japan to lead the project when she initially has no interest in it. She continues that she feels that Ro sees her as an enemy in the workplace and apologizes that Ro might be extending her hostility to Fuyu to the others in the team. Due to the initial positive comments from Ro in their first presentation, the team tells Fuyu not to worry too much, but the latter thinks Ro will most likely ruin the game in order to undermine her.

With the rekindling of their love for each other, Itsuki and Fuyu begin to wear their matching necklace again and will often sneak behind the others to spend time alone together. Fuyu tells Itsuki that she doesn’t really mind if the team finds out about their affair. Meanwhile, Ro meets someone from the team privately after making calls in China about the game adaptation. A few days later, Ro rejects everyone’s work that she previously praised and tells them malicious things about past of the character designer or the voice actors, such as previous comments on China or the use of high school girls as models in their old works, resulting in a whole change of staff. Ro pressures them to find immediate replacements and refuses to move their scheduled next presentation with Vincent. Fuyu intervenes and tells the team that they can report about the anime adaptation instead, something she has been planning behind everyone’s back, but to her surprise, Ro tells her that it’s a good idea, and she knows that they are already in talks with Asahi Productions for the adaptation. Ro also tells her that she will come with Fuyu to her next meeting with Asahi Productions, further confirming Fuyu’s suspicion that Ro is out to get her and probably has a collaborator or spy within the scene.

Asahi Production welcomes Ro excitedly and presents what they have drafted upon Fuyu’s instructions so far. In front of everyone, Ro praises Asahi Production for the work they have done for the last few weeks, further confirming Fuyu’s suspicion that Ro has investigated her project even before she went to Japan. Back at their office, Ro tells Fuyu that she wants Asahi Production to re-do all of their works as it has too much Girl’s Love theme on it. When Fuyu initially hesitates to follow, Ro insults her knowledge and orders her to do as she ordered before walking out of the room. Fuyu follows Ro and asks her to reconsider, but Ro humiliates her in front of everyone and orders her to report all her mistakes at their next meeting with Vincent. Ro also points out that the game will probably be scrapped and Fuyu will be demoted to a regular employee. Fuyu begs Ro to cancel the meeting with Vincent so she can fix her mistakes, but the latter tells her to kneel in front of her as a sign of her admitting her fault. While at it, Ro also orders Fuyu to wipe off the dirt on her shoes. Before Fuyu can even do so, Itsuki pushes Ro, and everyone helps Fuyu get up. Fuyu and Itsuki go to a cafe to spend time for a bit, where Fuyu shares that she thinks there is a spy within the team that might be reporting to Ro behind their backs. As Fuyu recalls how Itsuki defended her, she compliments the latter for being cool and kisses her. Unknown to them, someone is taking a photo of them as they exchange kisses.

 

Writer’s Thoughts

With Ro’s arrival, it looks like things are about to get harder within Dynamic Dream, while Fuyu and Itsuki’s relationship is going well. We couldn’t help but think that Kou knows about Fuyu’s past, and his assertion that he is already fine is also himself asserting their marriage to Itsuki. Meanwhile, the next episode hints at a connivance between Ro and Aoyama, but is the latter the only one, or is Fuyu right that there is a spy within her Tenyo Sekkai team? To find out, be sure to watch Episode 6 of ‘ ‘Chaser Game W: My Evil Boss Is My Ex-Girlfriend’ that will air on February 13, so stay tuned!
