  • some of torhu's friends visit

    ha ha ha what a fun episode! i love seeing them turn into animals, its so fun! i loved the pyhcic kept making them freak out, it was so cute! they made the cutest faces! but i dont see how they could not have figured out that they turn into animals! it was so obvious! but really funny, im glad her friends liked it, and even though i had wanted them to figure it out i was afraid of what would happen if they had. im glad she had played rich man poor man again so yuki could be included, it was sweet! but a overall great episode! it seems weird though you wouldnt think that that group of girls would work well together but they do.moreless
  • A Sohma sleepover gone wrong

    While the Sohmas weren't forced to transform in the manga, they certainly were here...over and over and over again. And we find out a little of Tohru's past (though not the whole Kyo/Yuki/hat backstory), namely how Uo and Hana came to be friends with her. The main action was zany and I liked it. I knew I picked a winner with vol 2 of the manga (episodes 6, 7, and 8).moreless
  • Uo and Saki visit the Sohma's house for an sleepover.

    When Tohru invited her two friends to Shigure's house.Shigure,Kyo and Yuki has to keep the secret of the family curse an secret.So the other two wont find out.Altough they tried their best to avoid any hugging although that fails! Actucally its funny.I mean cute too.I mean they try their best not to show themselve.Oh yeah in the english verison Tohru calls Shigure "Spot" but in the japanase she calls him "Pooch" yeah Kyo gotten serious when he said that they should show themselves and get their memory earse.But it would also mean earsing Tohru as well.You know what could be more interesting.If they added an scene from the manga,where Tohru talks about the hat and the boy.Who was helping her way back home.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Yuki: Maybe it's a good thing she didn't catch me after all; she squeezed that bun so hard all the filling came out.

    • (Shigure, Yuki, and Kyo listen while Tohru, Hana, and Uo-chan have some girl talk.)
      Shigure: That's lovely. She(Arisa)'s so... how shall I say it? By putting it into words I'm afraid the nobility of it all would only be obscured.
      Yuki: Of what?
      Shigure: You know, she's so spunky!
      Kyo: You sick bastard!

    • Shigure: (singing) High school girls, high school girls, 1, 2, 3, high school girls!

    • Shigure: So I wonder what kind of people Tohru's friends are?
      Kyo: A yankee and a psychic!
      Shigure: eh..

    • Yuki: Stupid cat.
      Kyo: Damn rat!

  • NOTES (2)

    • How Yuki, Kyo, and Shigure turn into their animal forms and keep it secret from Tohru's friends all before turning back again is exclusive to the anime and therefore didn't appear in the manga.

    • We should have seen a bit more about Tohru's past in this episode, as in the manga where she reveals the story of a hat that belonged to a young boy that was kind to her. This ties in to a later episode in the show, but the boys' reactions are never really explained.


    • Hana: A cat and a mouse. (Yuki and Kyo freeze.) That's what they're like.
      Uo: Oh Yeah. What was that show called something and Jerry.
      Uo refers to the fighting between Kyo and Yuki resembling the show Tom and Jerry, an American cartoon about a cat forever chasing a mouse.
