After an unfortunate incident where a collision with the President leaves him flat on his back, new employee Sawako Tsukahara is demoted to the GA2 (Shomuni) department. Will she be able to cope with her new colleagues?
Tsukahara's still finding life in GA2 tough, but when dashing billionaire's son Mr Ukyo joins Manpan, things start to look up. Until, that is, Tsukahara mistypes the date for one of Ukyo's important meetings.
Rie predicts that a "purple moth" is coming. Meanwhile, Manpan has started a cost-cutting exercise and the girls of GA2 ensure that all other departments stick to their budget, no matter what. This is not well received.
Someone in GA2 is pregnant, but who? Tsukahara's father arrives at Manpan but is mistaken by Terasaki and Nonomura for an irascible shareholder. When he leaps to the wrong conclusion after receiving news of the pregnancy, chaos ensues.
After the death of Manpan's Chairman, excitement rises amongst the directors as they jockey for position to be the next company President. A small, irritating, soccer-mad boy takes a shining to Chinatsu.
A business protégé approaches Manpan for two reasons. Firstly, he wants to go into partnership in a mutual venture. He also wants to find one of the company's female employees, who he met some time ago, falling in love at first sight.
A burglar is on the prowl and GA2 are co-opted into security duty. They discover a very nervous interviewee and offer advice. Meanwhile, the annual poetry competition gets underway, but can anyone stop Nonomura from retaining his crown?
Manpan has received threatening faxes, so security measures are implemented. Terasaki and Nonomura have been tasked with matchmaking Ukyo to a family friend of the president, but he's already handcuffed to Chinatsu and there's no key.
Ume's Arabic language skills lead to her being transferred to the Overseas Department. Meanwhile, GA2 must become cheerleaders to support Manpan's Tug-Of-War team and a visitor's wandering hands become too much for the secretaries to bear.
A massive theft from Manpan's San Diego branch leaves the company open to a take-over bid by the Sameshima group, who want something in the Manpan building. How can GA2 find it first, when they don't even know what they're looking for?
