Brief description of Episode 109, “Sardines in oil”

This old man (center on the left) is the one who showed Master a good way to eat canned sardines.

Put onion slices on the sardines in the can, place the can on a fish grill, and put over a fire. When it becomes bubbly, remove from the fire, and sprinkle dash of soy sauce.
You can have the sardines as an okazu (accompaniment to rice) or a tsumami (appetizer for sake). The old man, Shibuya, always places them on crackers to have them.

The man, a director of adult videos, was in love with a young girl, an apprentice at a barber shop. One day, the girl left the shop. One month later, the man saw her again, in a filming location, as a new actress for an adult video. The director canceled the filming, saying to her, “This is not a place you belong, Nao chan.” Later, he paid all the debt her ex-boyfriend had left her, set up a barber shop for her, and became her husband.

How did you like the story? I, for one, liked it very much!
