|Title:||Ai Yori Aoshi|
|This picks up right where episode 1 of Ai Yori Aoshi left off. Aoi spends the night with Kaoru who kindly gives his futon to her [image1]. She says he may share the futon with her, but being the gentleman he is [image2], he sleeps on the floor next to her - only to awake in Aoi's arms [image3].
The next morning, Kaoru said he'd escort her to the train station, but she tells him she has permission to stay a while if it is OK with him. She sweetens the deal with an offer of a home cooked meal and who can resist that?
Kaoru goes to school [image4] and Aoi goes shopping and cleans his room [image5]. She has all of his favorite dishes prepared [image6] when he comes home. When he wonders how she knew all of this, she responds by saying that she's been preparing to be his wife and as such, she remembered his favorites from when they were kids. He has always been on her mind.
Man, this was such a sweet episode. Only the 2nd episode in and the romantic element of it is just wonderful. There are some comedic elements, but seeing this young couple together was just heart tugging. Aoi is just so sweet and Kaoru is a very honorable guy.

The fairy tale continues for another 24 hours. Aoi is just too sweet to be true, and more so for a guy like Kaoru who never even had a girlfriend and now suddenly has a fiancé. And a great cliffhanger leads directly into the next stage of events...
That 'wrestling show' part is typical for the funny-ecchi interludes that will happen frequently in this series.
