But everything becomes complicated when Yukiya’s son, Kyosuke Kaji, visits Satoru’s workplace to demand that Satoru break up with his father. Satoru vehemently refuses, saying that there’s no other man besides Yukiya and even dares Kyosuke that if he satisfies him better than his father, he might change his mind. To Satoru’s chagrin, Kyosuke takes the dare a bit more seriously than he thought.
