Memorable Moments[]

  • Yomi making Tomo and Yukari envious by bragging about her trip to Hokkaido, the delicious food, the hot springs and the skiing.
  • Chiyo's and Osaka's snowball fight – rather pointless since both of them are bad throwers. When Kagura joins in, though, (on Osaka's team) Chiyo is taken down easily.
