Tokyo In April Is...

Episode 4: “Let’s do it.”

After an eventful few days at their work, Ren came back with Kazuma to his apartment. As Ren flopped on the sofa, Kazuma pats his head and tells him he’s done a great job. As Kazuma got up to leave, Ren grabs his hand and tells him he wants to have sex. They go to the bedroom and as they kiss and undress, Ren mutters about the light (because he does not want to be seen). Kazuma puts his hands on his eyes and tells him in the sweetest way possible that “if you don’t want me to see you, I’ll cover my eyes; if you don’t want me to hear you, I’ll cover my ears.” Ren, clearly touched by this, hugged Kazuma.

The next day, as Ren was picking up a call and taking down notes, he saw a box of items that says Kazuma’s high school things. He opens them up and saw files and files of paperwork and even an old photo of them, seemingly noting down where Ren might be. Ren remembers moments ever since they met again: when Kazuma took his hands and tells him he’s Kazuma, when he hugged him and says he missed him so much… Upon realizing this, Ren cried and said “he searched for me all around the world…”.

Tokyo in April is ...

Ren remembers when he first fell in love with Kazuma. He liked him the first time he saw him and wanted to protect him. But it was when they were talking about “girlfriends” that Ren felt dejected because he came up with the conclusion that Kazuma didn’t like men. When they had sex the first time, Ren thought Kazuma only did it because he felt pity for him and because Kazuma was just an incredibly nice person. Even so, Ren was happy because he liked him. But then, the morning after, Kazuma fell incredibly ill and was unable to wake up. Ren called for help, and it was then that he was told by the doctor that he needs to tell the truth in order to save Kazuma. And so, despite the circumstances but wanting to save Kazuma more than anything in the world, Ren says he forced Kazuma to have sex with him and that he was not able to eat anything before then, and he was also soaked in the rain. Kazuma’s mother slapped him and told him never to appear in front of him ever again.

Unfortunately, the heartbreak does not stop there. Ren’s father sends him overseas as a last resort and essentially abandons him. But before he leaves, Ren harms himself so he can go to the hospital and see Kazuma for the last time. He goes to Ren, who was still unconscious, and apologizes for liking him. He cries, holds his hand, and tells him: “Please don’t die… I like you… Please stay alive…”.

Back to the present, Kazuma finishes showering. He cautiously asks Ren if they can spend time together today since it’s their day off and Ren, fresh from crying from the revelation, says yes. He goes to take a shower as Ren adorably cheers.

The two of them eat together and talk like a new couple. Kazuma asks Ren what he likes to do by himself, and upon saying that he likes watching movies, he asks him if they can watch one together. Ren laughs at Kazuma who can’t handle his horror movies well. The two spend the entire day together just being domestic. (finally!!!) At night, Ren didn’t go home and stayed with Kazuma… and he did so for the next few days. He was incredibly happy that he was able to be with Ren when he woke up and when he goes to sleep. Clearly, Kazuma is down so badly. But it was not just Kazuma who was smitten, Ren was, too. And it was evident from their faces that even their colleagues were able to notice how bright and happy the two of them looked.

At work, Kazuma was informed about colleagues who happen to resign the moment they were about to become permanent staff which was apparently due to Manager Sanada, which was a strange occurrence in itself. As they talk about this, Ren goes to the toilet and sees Sanada walk by, and he remembers what his old senior colleague mentions. This remains a mystery.

Back to the domestic honeymoon couple, the two are now seemingly living together in Kazuma’s house. They become comfortable being intimate together, even hugging without the intention of their initially-agreed purely sexual relationship. Kazuma dries Ren’s hair as he leans back at Kazuma. He kisses Ren and Kazuma teasingly says he never gave him permission to kiss him. Kazuma asks if he can’t, and Ren says he didn’t say he can’t… And the two live happily ever after….

Not yet. Because Manager Sanada is probably up to something. Hopefully, our favorite domestic couple’s relationship will be safe from anything that Manager Sanada will do. But we can be confident that Ren and Kazuma will fight for their relationship (whatever the official relationship name is…)
