  • When Hikage returns home from Tokyo for the first time, she talks big about being in a big city, especially focusing on the bullet train she rode on. When she learns Hotaru originally lived in Tokyo, she asks if Hotaru arrived on a bullet train. Hotaru answers in the negative, and Hikage thinks she's got the upper hand... and then Hotaru says she arrived by airplane instead. Everyone else in the room is immediately enthralled by the revelation, and they all run off to another room to ask Hotaru all about her plane experience, leaving Hikage to tell an uninterested Kazuho about her bullet train experience.

Komari could hear his footsteps but, due to his lack of presence, failed to notice him until he left. She later discovered his coin and panicked because she thought it had been a real ghost. When Natsumi finally comes along, Komari had gotten herself entangled in the Bedsheet Ghost costume and was frantically waving around the shrine's bell to get rid of evil spirits.
  • Renge and Komari getting locked in a rabbit cage by the escaped rabbit they were trying to trap.

  • While Hotaru and Natsumi are helping with school cleanup, Natsumi strikes up a conversation by mentioning an old anime. Unfortunately for her, Hotaru happens to be a big fan, and Natsumi finds herself in over her head when Hotaru mentions things that Natsumi has no idea about. Natsumi's situation becomes even more desperate as her every attempt to switch topics has Hotaru becoming even more enthusiastic about the anime, and eventually reaches a point where Hotaru calls Natsumi out some contradictions, and Natsumi meekly admits she only knew of the name.
  • Natsumi and Hikage's attempts to remedy their predicament of eating some dumplings meant for a moon viewing that night. Hikage tries to kill the mood of everyone else, but ends up making them even more excited instead. Natsumi's attempt to make more dumplings fails, so they go to apologize instead, but an inconvinent appearance by Kaede has Natsumi abort that plan. In the end, Natsumi lets the truth slip out, and they end up having to make mochi as a replacement.
  • Konomi messes with Renge a little bit, making Renge believe that she's a regenerating monster through the old detached thumb trick. Later, when meeting with Natsumi and Komari, Konomi recounts the events, leading to the sisters doing the trick too... and leaving Renge utterly terrified.
  • Hikage's attempts to peek at Renge's New Year's card drawing culminates with Hikage grabbing Renge to force her way through. Unfortunately for Hikage, Renge gets the upper hand, sends her to the floor, and then breaks out Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs on Hikage in retaliation. The anime makes the moment even funnier by backing the whole fight with dramatic music.
    • Adding to the humor to the anime version of the scene: the episode featuring this moment was outsourced to David Production, the same studio behind the recent anime adaptation of Jojos Bizarre Adventure. Cue the variousvideos that set the scene to audio from Stardust Crusaders.
