Oh, My Dad!! Episode 6
Scientist Shinkai Genichi was once in the international spotlight during
his university days for the development of a magnesium-air battery. He
received investments from overseas companies and set up Shinkai Energy
Research Institute. However, he could not get to the point of
commercialising the technology. 18 years on, he is still carrying out
research in pursuit of his dream, and neglects his family.
wife Sayoko has been raising their only son Kota who has turned 5 while
working part-time to support the household. However, she is fed up with
Genichi and has constant quarrels with him. At one time, Genichi gets
the opportunity to present the magnesium-air battery technology to the
persons in charge of development at a petroleum company through the
connections of Kishida Fumiaki a former research staff who now works for
Nitto Bussan, a major trading company.
On this day, Genichi
wrecks his prototype because of some problems. He takes money set aside
for the apartment rent to buy replacement parts, but the presentation
ends abysmally. Sayoko, who learns about this, takes out her anger at
Genichi and finally leaves the house. The next morning, Genichi realises
that Sayoko is not around and just sends Kota to his nursery school.
Sayoko does not answer her mobile phone and has also quit her part-time
job. Examining her personal belongings, Genichi discovers a written
notification to cancel the contract for the apartment and a reminder
letter for a card loan.
His face drains of colour. When he goes
to pick Kota up at nursery school, he happens to meet his ex-girlfriend
Hayasaka Mizuki, who is also Kishida’s colleague, again. Then he and
Kota are driven out of the apartment because rent has not been paid, and
they are forced to live like the homeless.
