  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Kyo: Why you sneaky little...Why didn't you tell us sooner that you and Haru are coming to our school?!
      Momiji: We want it to be a surprise.
      Yuki: Miss Honda, I guess you didn't know that Momiji's actually only a year younger than us. The same age as Haru.
      (A picture of Momiji and Haru is shown with an '=' sign between them.)
      Tohru: (Shocked and panicked) All this time I taught he was in elementary school and now he's coming to our school? Together with Hatsuharu!! Ahh...I don't even know which part I should be more surprised about!
      Momiji: Be surprised about everything.

    • Momiji: There's still time before dinner so let's take a bath!
      Tohru: Okay!
      Momiji: Let's take it together!
      Tohru: Okay!
      (Kyo and Yuki were shocked and gloomy after hearing it.)
      Kyo: (pinning down Momiji's head with his hand) You little...Now who's the pervert?
      Momiji: Awwww...what did I do?
      Tohru: Oh, but Momiji's so little and all, i think it'll be alright.
      Kyo: Little? What are you talking about?

    • Shigure (after hanging a maid's outfit over the doorframe): Well, here it is; my White Day present for Tohru. Lovely, isn't it? The poor girl's gone far too long without suitable clothing to wear while cleaning the house.
      Haru (deadpan): It's amazing no one's locked you up yet.

    • Tohru: How nice. My first open-air bath, and the spring seems almost big enough for someone like Momiji to swim in.
      Kyo : (from across the fence in the boys' hot spring) He is swimming.

  • NOTES (3)

    • It is revealed the the member of the Zodiac possessed by the monkey is named Ritsu. Ritsu won't appear until Episode 23.

    • This is the first episode where Yuki is filled with true laughter, all because of Tohru.

    • The omake, or hostess, is the mother of the member of the Zodiac possessed by the monkey. She soaks in the baths and springs of the resort several times a day to better her poor health.


    • According to one of the graphic novels, the Hostess is a revival of the ghost woman character from Natsuki Takaya's other work, Tsubasa O Motsu Mono. Ms. Takaya doesn't normally have crossover characters.

    • The picture that Tohru wraps up in plastic is an "iie", or memorial to her mother. This is common in Japan to use these pictures to bring the dead along with you to anyplace you go without actually bringing them along.
