SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Urusei Yatsura - 174Shinobu gets a book on knitting from the library and takes a slow, museful walk to a cafe, where she starts knitting, telling the master there that the change of seasons makes her want to knit. She continues knitting that night at home and the next morning on the way to school, Soban interrupts her mailing a letter, so Kotatsu-neko puts it in for her as Shinobu is forced to flee.  At school, Shinobu realizes she doesn’t have the letter and didn’t mail it, but decides not to worry about it.  Meanwhile, Kitsune takes the guise of a boy and pays a visit to an old lady, bringing a bag of chestnuts with him and asking for a story.  So, the old lady decides to tell a tale of a poor couple in love and the magical dandelion wedding dress.

ZZzzzz…*snort* Oh, I’m sorry. Is it over?  I must have fallen asleep from SHEER BOREDOM!

Pretty much, whenever we have a Kitsune episode, its going to be pretty tedious.  It should be cute and all, but it always fails with me.

The school wearing costumes allowed for a number of sci-fi and fantasy cameos, including Nausicaä, Mothra (Ataru) various American comic book characters, C3P0 from Star Wars, and an alien from Alien.  That was pretty much the highlight of the episode.

I guess I did smile a bit at the beautiful, oiran kimono that Ataru made for Lum so that she’d be weighed down and thus give him a chance to girl hunt. Of course, she had a spare costume underneath.

I did get a chuckle at Soban sneaking back in on Shinobu and giving her a good lick after she’d clocked him good.

So, a mostly boring, tedious episode is over. Hopefully, the next one will be better. ^_^;
