This man was an enterpriser (NYの企業家 (NYのきぎようか) )[1] based in New York City. He had a successful business, which was later merged with Domyoji Group. The merger nearly failed due to a conflict with Kaede Domyoji. However, thanks to Tsukushi Makino, the merger went through.


The businessman was a president of a successful company in New York City. There were talks to merge the company with Domyoji Group. However, it was halted after he clashed with Kaede Domyoji.[2] The businessman visited Central Park often to think about his fight with Kaede. One day, a girl, Tsukushi Makino, suddenly handed him a burger while speaking to him in Japanese, which he did not understand. She then shouted at her friend, appearing to demand something from him. The businessman began clapping, saying he admired her and wished he could solve his own problems "just like that." Thomas translated for him. Tsukushi encouraged him to have "kiai," meaning "spirit," before departing.[3]

A couple days later, the businessman ran into Tsukushi again at the park. Rui Hanazawa translated his question about whether they hated someone. Tsukushi offered him some encouraging words and tossed a baseball with him. Afterwards, the businessman brought them to his building to have lunch. There he fought with Kaede again. Tsukushi stepped in, revealing that she also hated Kaede. She still encouraged him to "make up" with her since he regretted their fight.[2] The merger subsequently went through. The businessman with an interpreter rushed to the airport to meet Tsukushi. He first thanked her, before returning her baseball she left with him by accident. The businessman told her to "Take good care of [her]self" and left after promising to have lunch together someday.[4]
