** We're shown the first encounter between Eimi and Genichiro. Eimi, as a thief, was trying to escape the police, and Genichiro spontaneously decided to hide her in his apartment. But she was wounded and he had nothing to treat her, and she was threatening to make him pay if she got caught... Then Genichiro hid her under a mountain of roses conjured specifically for the occasion, [[DefrostingIceQueen and her heart melt]].

***What follows is a FallingInLoveMontage, capped by Present!Eimi having this dreamy and squishy look on her face.


* At the start of episode 19, Asuka jr. was asked what he'd take with him to run away in case a comet was about to hit Earth. Later, as part of her plan to 'steal' a comet in episode 19 (actually kicking out the astronomers from the local observatory so the local kids would be able to see the comet as the previous director had promised them before being replaced), Saint Tail makes it appear that a piece of said comet has broken off and is directed against the observatory, causing the scientists to run away... And Asuka jr. to ''still'' try and catch Saint Tail, because he literally ''can't think of anything more important''.

The epilogue shows that they have apparently gone into business together by opening a restaurant. This also leads to a cute SheIsNotMyGirlfriend moment when the chief assumes that Meimi is Asuka Jr's girlfriend which immediately prompts a simultaneous denial.

Added DiffLines:

** In a twisted way, Rosemary's willingness to renounce her revenge against Saint Tail if she'll join her and Maju into stealing their way to prosperity. That, and the reveal that she adopted Maju: given she was already a talented enough thief to catch Rosemary's eye at her young age, she probably didn't have a good life beforehand.
*** Also, Saint Tail's reply: Asuka jr. is her jewel, and Rosemary ''must'' give him back.
