  • What happens


  • Chiyo uses her pigtails to fly in this chapter, like she usually does in Osaka's dreams.
  • In Sakaki's dream, Chiyo has a maid who is a penguin. This might be because Chiyo dressed up as a penguin during the second cultural festival.
  • Sakaki confesses to Chiyo-chichi that she wishes she were shorter and that cats didn't hate her, like we know from previous chapters.
  • Chiyo-chichi appears to be angry with Sakaki because she came up with the idea of making a hat shaped like his face during the cultural festival.



Cultural References[]

  • Chiyo-chichi talks about how they made a hat of him.
  • When Osaka comes to wake up Sakaki, she shows her a hawk, an eggplant and Mount Fuji. This is a reference to the Japanese belief according to which Mount Fuji, a hawk and an eggplant appearing in one's dream is a sign of great fortune to come.

Unanswered Questions[]

  • Chiyo flies to greet Sakaki, but it is unknown from where she flew.
  • What Chiyo-chichi has against red things.
  • We do not get to see Chiyo's reply to what's currently popular at school.
  • Osaka says "hi again" to Chiyo-chichi. It is not known when they met before.

Memorable Moments[]

  • Chiyo-chan's rather worthless maid who seems to make a bigger mess than she cleans up. According to Chiyo, her brain stops working sometimes.
  • Sakaki's and Chiyo's dinner with Chiyo's father.
  • Osaka wakes up Sakaki in a strange way (in her dream).
