- Kaoru comforts the ghost girl after she confides her sadness about her boyfriend moving on after her death. She also offers Rilakkuma for the girl to kick, since she died on the day she wanted to see the bear exhibit at the zoo. Instead, the girl can't bear to kick Rilakkuma and hugs him instead, and he hugs her back.
- In episode 8, Rilakkuma keeps getting fired from his jobs and feels like he can't do anything for Kaoru, resorting to offering himself for her to eat. She finds the gesture kind and apologizes for making him worry. When she brings up his reaction jokingly, he gets flustered and she hugs him in appreciation.
