However, he finds himself without money or contacts, and struggles in the urban jungle. That is until Satoru finds an airplane ticket under a vending machine, which leads to a mysterious encounter with the ticket's owner, Yamamura, who introduces herself as the president of her own company.

At the suggestion of the agency's president, Yamamura, Satoru signs up for several auditions to learn what he lacks as an actor.

Despite this, on the night of Satoru's twenty-seventh birthday, he skips out on his plans with Haruko to take Yui out for dinner.

When Adrienne found herself about to become a single mother, Takeshi decided to support her and her son. Finally, Satoru understands why Takeshi never returned to Japan.
