Yusaku receives a phone call from a mysterious woman. She gives him many hints to her location. Yusaku records the conversation, and uses the clues to find the woman. His first conclusion leads him to a hotel, but it soon turns out he's wrong when an old woman comes up and chews him out. Yusaku then continues his search.


After re-analyzing the woman's conversation, Yusaku realizes that she's at the Go Show Cinema. He goes there and meets up with her. The mysterious woman turns out to be his girlfriend and future wife, Yukiko. They then watch the movie in peace.


  • The animated version of this short story is much different (and longer) than the manga version. The detective in the original story was named Yusaku Kitakata who ends up meeting a woman at the cinema who resembles Chikage Kuroba.
  • Wait For Me and The Santa Claus of Summer were the two films showing at the Go-Show-Cinema.
