When Kabae gives Retsuko a book from a Regency-era romance series, our hero becomes obsessed. After reading the entire series over a sleepless weekend, Retsuko finds that her mother also loves the series, and the two spend an entire lunch talking about it. They are thrilled to realize that a pop-up shop themed around the book has opened nearby and is hosting a competition for a pre-release DVD of the TV show pilot! Undaunted even after realizing Tsubone and Fenneko are her competition, Retsuko (egged on by her mother’s merciless competitive spirit) engages in a series of physical, mental, and trivia-based trials to win her prize.
Also featuring two special backup stories from Brenda Hickey, Josh Tierney, and Shadia Amin!
