Unanswered Questions

  • What Kimura's wife and daughter were going to wish for.
  • What kind of fortunes that the other girls (besides Tomo and Kagura) got.
  • How Yukari heard about the son of the shrine's priest failing his college entrance exams.
  • Why Osaka got so angry when Tomo didn't break her chopsticks correctly.
  • What kind of questions the girls had to answer that Chiyo-chan thought were boring.

Memorable Moments

  • The girls' temple visit. When they get their fortunes, Tomo gets a "bad luck", which is supposed to be very rare, and has no idea what to do. Yukari ends up giving the "bad luck" to Nyamo.
  • The college entrance exams. Osaka tries to make sure everyone will do well by giving them chopsticks to split cleanly, and when Tomo fails to do so, Osaka gets very angry at her for the first and only time in the series. The two of them, together with Kagura, are seriously worried about their results.
