Episode Summary

Tough Test!: Tenma and Harima's class is taking an English test, but Tenma forgets to write her name on her paper. If someone doesn't write their name on their test paper, then that person will automatically fail that test. So, Harima tries to subliminally tell Tenma to write her name before the test is over.

Trapped in the Bathroom!: Embarrassed of Karasuma seeing her come out of the girl's washroom, Tenma uses bathroom tools to help her escape from the little girl's room undetected.

The School Physical!: There is a physical examination at school, and Tenma is determined to find out Karasuma's personal information by disguising herself as a nurse.moreless

  • Funnier that the first episode.

    In the first part Harima tries to get the naive and oblivious Tenma to write her name on her paper. When all of his silly antics fail, he resorts to writing her name on his own paper, thinking it's a good idea. In the end, Tenma fails because of Harima. In the second part Tenma must escape from the girl's bathroom without Karasuma noticing her. After a lot of funny attempts that failed, she eventually climbs out with plungers, but Karasuma notices her and comments about how glad he is she's safe. Finally, in the third part, Tenma pretends to be a nurse in order to get Karasuma's personal information. Harima has done this as well, probably to get Tenma's personal information. Thus the whole physical is cancelled. It was a great episode, but not superb yet.moreless
  • Really funny!

    Ah, I really like Harima. He's a man (or person) who has been changed by a girl, but yet not. Ah, and the aura of his... love it!

    And his continuous attempts – mostly funny – at making the oblivious Tenma realize she hasn't written her name on a test. Poor him... and poor her. The same can be said when she couldn't get out of the bathroom because Karasuma was standing just outside. Furthermore, when they had the physical examination, I felt bad for her; dying of curiosity because she wondered about Karasuma, as always. Of course, that was pretty funny as well.

    In addition, when Harima was a doctor at the end... I can just imagine what he did to the real one...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The green-haired girl (the one whose cup size is A, according to Imadori) is named Ichijou Karen. This is her first episode appearance, but she doesn't have any dialogue in this episode. Ichijou will have a role later on in the series.

    • At one point, the girls talk about what they ate at the cafe. Mikoto says that she ate mozoku, which is a kind of vinegared seaweed dish. It's actually rather disgusting, and Japanese girls typically don't eat that kind of food.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Harima: (Thinking about Yakumo to himself) You changed an insignificant place like school to an oasis for my heart.

    • Tenma: (hiding behind the bathroom door) Karasuma! Wait! Why did I hide from him? I guess I was embarrassed to let the boy I love seeing me come out of the girls' bathroom. Oh great! Now that I thought about it, I can't go out! I'm such a moron! It's just the girls' bathroom but I pee in here! What do I do?
      Akira: (watching Tenma) Ok, I really need to get out now.

    • Tenma: That's it! I'm going to become a nurse!
      Eri, Mikoto, Akira: Huh?
      Akira: Maybe I'm overreacting, but doesn't that strike you as abrupt career decision?
      Mikoto: Yeah, well, consider the source.
      Eri: Oh gosh, I think she really is serious time.

    • Tenma: (talking to the scale) You fiend! Do your worst! You shall never beat me!
      Yakumo: I don't want to seem unsympathetic, but I don't think you can blame the scale.

    • Tenma: (about Karasuma) Come on! Why is he being such an idiot? Why would anyone stand around talking for so long in front of the girls' bathroom? But that's why I love the guy!

    • Harima: Bring it on, losers. You can't beat me because I'm in love.
      (thinks of Tenma)
      Harima: And it's all for you, Tenma.

    • Imadori: (looking at one girl) Let's see... A? No, no... B. Definitely. (looks at another girl) And this one... A, I think.
      Nara: Imadori. Hey, are you trying to guess blood types?
      Imadori: Bra sizes, my friend.
      (Nara gasps)
      Imadori: Yeah, I can tell at a glance; it's a gift. I don't even need to measure though I could if I wanted to.

    • Harima: (thinking while taking a test) Too... many... letters... brain... hurting. School is hard!

    • Harima: (thinking to himself) Even in the worst situations, when a man's in love, he can't afford to lose his pride.

    • The cafe that Mikoto talks about in the beginning of Act 2 is the "UCG Cafe Mercado." The girls will talk more about this cafe in a few episodes.
