Due to being sicker than a dog and barely able to muddle through work, this post is delayed by a day. This means that I will do the #1 post for tomorrow on new years eve. Guess it kinda worked out being behind by a day! :c)

This is the episode all about dreams… Osaka is once again in dreamland and this time she is dreaming about the great mystery of Chiyos pigtails. She is dreaming that Chiyo is flying around using her pigtails as propellers! Osaka then decides to take the pigtails off to see what happens and Chiyo falls down. Sakai is dreaming too but of the neighborhood cat that that always eludes her but not before scratching the living daylights out of her, Chiyo then comes along and introducing her to a cat that says its Chiyo-chichi and then Chiyo invites her to her house for dinner with her dad. While there Sakai sees a penguin that is supposed to be Chiyos maid. Tomo is also off drooling in dreamland about things that will never ever happen. She is dreaming that she is the a all-star student that scores high marks and is smarter then Chiyo and Yomi. HA! Yeah right! She also wins beauty contest and is the hero in every tale. Kaorin is having a bit of a Yuri dream where Sakaki saves her from the local Yakuza but, before the story can progress she is woken up to head to the temple with everyone for new years. While at the temple the group talking about their dreams that point out to Chiyo that she was in each one of them which leaves her franticly asking what she was like and what she did in them as they are bringing in the new year.
