During the sleep over, tohru finds a hat that reveals some of Tohru's childhood and past. A cute ending (later find out that the boy was...) you think i would ruin the surprise? read the manga!

Episode 7: "A plum on the back"

The annual cultural festival is going on at school and Tohru is readying herself to make onigiri. Kyo is down because his idea of "fighting onigiris" was shot down, and Yuki is completely embarrassed of what he has to wear at the festival. A dress! Later two new members of the zodiac are revealed after coming to the cultural fest! Momiji (a half german-half japanese exchange student) and Hatori (the sohma family doctor). Crazy stuff happens in this episode including transformations, a group of kittens appearing out of no where and Yuki going mad!

Episode 8: "Don't cry, for the snow will surely melt"

Hatori insists that Tohru come talk to him at the Sohma house, and so she does. He insists that because of the curse, she should leave the family alone and leave the house. This episode leads up to Hatori's sad tale of love, devotion, and betrayal. (Gives me shivers just thinking about it lol)

Episode 11: "Everybody loves chocolate"

It's valentines day and tohru has been working extra hard on both school work and well..at work. Momiji invites the sohmas and tohru to the hot springs but tohru refuses until momiji insists and then complies. Tohru knows she cant go and then...the sohmas find out that she spent all the money she made on chocolates for them, they begin to feel guilty. Kyo is visited by kagura and has chocolate (literally) smashed down his throat. Momiji tells the story of the fool and once yuki and kyo make the analogy to tohru, kyo decides to go with tohru to the hot springs.
My favorite Quote from this episode:
Kagura: I'm here for Valentine's, silly! It's a very important day for lovers to be together!
Kyo: You're not gonna find any lover in this house!
Shigure: Kyo, behave please. I don't want the house getting... you know... smashed.
Kyo: Damn it! I should've left on that journey sooner! How was I supposed to know today was Valentine's?
Yuki: It's called a calendar.

Episode 12: "White Day"

Episode 13: "The New school term starts!"

Episode 14: "Yuki's a messed up snake!"

Episode 15: "There are no memories. It's okay to forget."

Episode 16: "Fear of Jason"

My favorite episode: "It's Because I've Been Loved That I've Become Stronger" Kisa is discovered in her tiger form. I love how Tohru reacts whenever she sees Kisa. KAWAII! It's adorable. ^_^
