Nasa‘s cousin, Ginga, who acts like a yakuza man but he’s really a normal high school student, has his “boys" bring in a feral kitten they found outside their high school. Nasa immediately takes it to the vet to get completely checked out. When the vet asks for his name, Tsukasa offers up "Toast" because the kitten has a lighter square of fur on its back and it’s mostly brown. Once Toast is back home settling in, he starts getting in the way of Nasa getting close to his wife because he's constantly demanding food. Ganga presents Nasa with a wedding present: two tickets to the Land of Dreams, a theme park. The young couple decided to go to the park as a date. Tsukasa has never been and is excited to try everything. They weren’t the only ones who had the idea to come as a date. Nasa's teacher is invited by a colleague who doesn’t know how to confessed his feelings for her.
Just when I thought this series couldn’t get any cuter, now there’s a kitten named Toast. And Nasa springs into action to take care of the kitten with the same level of savvy that he has for pretty much everything in his life. Nasa is giving a good name to everyone who has lots of practical smarts as an adult, and showing that going to college isn't the only way to gain that knowledge. Nasa's cousin adds another layer of humor on top of Chitose, Tsukasa's outrageous sister. The theme park is “coincidentally" very similar to Disneyland, so anyone who has been one of the Disney properties will appreciate this outing. Seeing the budding relationship of the two teachers was also pretty adorable. Hata just has a way about making everything so sweet.
