A great country known in Western Europe for its European style towns coexisting with the brimming, rich nature, Ukraine. On that day, the Love Bus had arrived at the capital, Kiev.
The old city of Kiev , boasting a 1500 year old history.
The group had been taken to a restaurant by Vitali, the driver.
Mie「There it is! It looks like a rice ball」
That dish was 「Chicken Kiev」
After pounding fresh chicken meat until it becomes tender, roll it in butter to give it body. Fry it until it becomes brown like a fox, and it's ready. Chicken Kiev is a recommended dish from which butter flows out when you take a bite.
That day, in Arashi 's 「Power up Notebook」:「『Kiev Katsu Retsu』 is a dish consisting in covering a slice of pork with wheat flour, dipping it in eggs, breading it with breadcrumbs, and frying it in oil.

Arashi hadn't noticed that it was chicken.
That afternoon, TK didn't seem like he was feeling too good.
Somehow, he had had too much cucumbers and was having an indigestion.
It was a dojo for a martial art called sambo.
That guy was a sambo instructor.
Teacher「Ok, you boys go change」
The boys were about to take the sambo challenge！
First, they started by warming-up.
Teacher「Don't do it too hard」
Then, the technique...
Finally, after they had had an hour of severe instruction, they were ready to fight!
Surprise, it was a woman. However..
Teacher「She's the female champion of Ukraine」
Surprise, that sambo master was a woman who had been Ukraine's female champion in the women's 56 kilo category for three years in a row. The winner is decided by the number of points scored within a certain time limit, or if your opponent gives up. To start, the first opponent was TK.
Next was Hide.
And then , the 180cm (5'11") tall Arashi.
As expected, the champion was unmatchable. The last fortress of the Japanese team was this man！Suuzan , Japan's number 2 karateka. Could he really achieve a tactical victory！？
Surprise, the champion had given up！
Suuzan had defeated the Ukraine's female champion with a killer move called 『Udehishigi-jujigatame』！
Mie「How are you？」
At that moment, HE arrived！
It was the yankee-flavored TK！
Mie「What's up? You're so hyper」
The next day, the group was taken to the city market by Vitali, the driver. There, they were about to meet "someone big". Then...
What was before them certainly was someone big！
His hand was as big as a baseball glove.
Hide「The tallest in the world！？」
According to the Guinness record, the tallest person in the world was 235 cm (7'8.5"). However...
Surprisingly, he was the tallest in the world ！Next to the 153cm (5 feet) tall Umechan , there was a one meter (3 feet) difference！
Next to him, the Love Bus also looked like a small car. They had met the tallest man in the world in Ukraine.
TK「What was that！?」
Hide「I've got something I wanna give you...」
Hide had given her a letter.
The next day, the seven had gone to a park to take a break. Then...
Hide had been rejected.
Hide「Haaaa, that's so uncool」
Hide“Like, romance is so hard, you know. Thinking back when Oose was here, she was such a big part (of my life). She was always minding me, no matter what. She was encouraging me. And I realized it only after she was gone. Like, the importance, the greatness (of friendship). When there's nobody to support you, it's really hard. Seriously”
On that day, the group had been taken to a building by Vitali, the driver.
「What is this place？」
There were ballet dancers. This was 『The National Kiev Ballet Academy』, which was one of the three best ballet academies during the former Soviet Union. Many students become professional ballet dancers after an 8 year program to train the gifted in this highly reputed school. The teacher, Marina, started to speak.
At once, the group went to change.
Black leotards had been made available. Umechan got a real bad surprise ・・・
(Note: Name of a manzai comedian duo who started in the 70's)
After the three girls had changed, they were waiting for the boys. Then...
The boys were attracting attention with their bulges.
At once, practice began. At first, they were taught basic postures. Although they were puzzled by their first ballet experience, the seven dedicated themselves to practice.
Arashi had paired up with Aya, and TK with Mie. Hide with Umechan , and Suuzan with one of the students. The first thing to practice for a pair performance is the 『Promenade』, for which the girl hangs on to the boy's arm and rotates (around him). Then, extending the leg up high and leaning down forward for the 『Arabesque penchee』. Next, the 『Grand jete』, for which the girl jumps in the air supported by the boy. Finally a pre decided pose.
Aya「It's embarrassing. It's hot. It's hot. It's hot」
Being extremely close to Arashi , she was turning hot.
When practice was over, they moved to the school stage in order to show their performance. However...
The auditorium was filled with people！Actually, teachers and students had come to see them. The group suddenly became quiet. In such an atmosphere, the performance started. The first pair was TK and Mie！
There was a sympathetic round of applause from the auditorium.
Next wasSuuzan , who had paired up with a student. Then, Hide and Umechan doing their best, too, and the main event, the Arashi and Aya pair. アヤ was dancing, entrusting Arashi with her body. Their dance was a great success.
On the other hand...
Hide“Those two looked great, didn't they? It was like a scene from a drama. They really looked like a couple”
Suuzan「What's up？Is something wrong？」
Hide 's decision was about to tremendously change 3 people's love destiny!！
