Enviable New Face (ねたまれそうなNEWフェイス Netama re sou na NEW feisu) is the seventeenth episode of the Itazura na Kiss anime, which aired on August 2, 2008.
Kotoko is still learning the tricks and trades of becoming a nurse. But she faints during a practice autopsy which results in Keita saving her. When he lays Kotoko down on the bed, he suddenly felt the urge to kiss her, Naoki sees this and decides to confront Keita. Keita however strongly believes that Naoki treats Kotoko with no respect and ignores Naoki's words. Then the story shows Irie staring passionately at the unconscious Kotoko, but a nurse came in with the request of Dr. Irie. Kotoko wakes up shortly after and returns to home with Keita, and meets Irie's mother halfway. Naoki's mother seems to notice that Keita is much more chivalrous to Kotoko than the cold-hearted Naoki and decides to find out more about Keita. After sneaking into the college and gaining information from other students, Keita is just a nice guy and even Naoki's mother believes that anyone would choose Keita over Naoki. The end of the episode shows Keita concerned about Kotoko going back to Naoki, and asking her to leave Naoki for her own good, as he believes Naoki does not love her.
