Higehiro Episode 1, The Teenage Girl Beneath the Lamplight, introduced us to Yoshida and how he confessed one fateful weekend to his crush, Airi Goto. Yoshida gets rejected and realized he has been in unrequited love for all those five years only to get heartbroken. This led him to a drink after work with his colleague Hashimoto.
Yoshida decides to head home and he saw a girl sitting on the side of the street who is drunk with hebereke. Her name is Sayu and she ran from home. Yoshida decided to stay with her and bring her to an inn where they both hit the sack for the night. Asleep, Yoshida says he wanted a miso soup made by a woman. He is pained with a broken heart even in his sleep.
The next day, it was a Sunday morning and Yoshida woke up to a sumptuous scent of miso soup. It was made by Sayu. This is how their story begins.
