If Maru and Moro are cute (ish), then the Vestal Sprite is one of the girls I would find in the spirit section of the moe dictionary.

Nice, touching episode, with lots of funny moments.

Love the vestal sprite and her interaction with Watanuki. Her air-boarding guardians are a little disconcerting though.

the ability to mix so many things in one ep, just phenomenal

Lol at Rain Sprite getting stuck in the tree. I hate those paper fan weilding, air boarding defender guys.

I don't know which is cuter, tiny pipefox or big pipefox.

That's the second time I've seen an anime reference Ring (The first being the second "season" of Gantz). And I wonder if the giant, talking flowers are an Alice reference?

That was an awesome and cute episode! I just wanted to watch it, and I did it! I remember this arc from the manga and I just can't avoid doing funny faces... After all Kudakitsune is pure love. Just see him play and huggle and love Watanuki is just too much for me... and seeing him so happy is so kewl.... Since I know it I was so happy to see such thing... Too bad I've barely seen him again nowadays :/

And so they went to the Pure Spirits Mountain and received a cleanse... nice... Kudakitsune really needed it n_n since he was being a nuisance to the poor Watanuki... Oh but I never expected to see Zashiki Warashi again >< Of course if there's a Zashiki then there's the Ame and the Sky Surfing guys... Anyway, the part with Zashiki was so cute... and so full of love.... Really Zashki ha fallen hard for Watanuki. Lol at Ame Warashi getting stuck in a tree branch xD And the funny The Ring reference is funny xD Nice episode!

I agree :P

I second that agreement. :D

I really loved this episode. It had both the epic pipe fox and the adorable Zashikiwarashi. I really prefer Watanuki with the Sprite than him with Himawari. Plus the Vestal Sprite just seems more interesting to me...

Plus, either it's just me, or I'm just getting used to it, but the animation didn't seem as off or strange in this episode.

In any case, 5/5 for this episode, for me~.

Zashikiwarashi was so pretty! Watanuki, just ditch Himawari and go hook up with our precious sprite.

The pipe fox was a kissing monster XD!

This episode was cute, with Zashikiwarashi and all. I must say I love the background music of the series.

I want my own pipefox...but i kinda thought it was lame that it started losing its tattoos simply from eating junkfood.

also they didn't really go into that much. Why doesn't it have any tattoos when small?

Even the animals are bullying him. She thinks the bullying is cute. The bush is throwing rocks at his water. A wishing well perhaps? The orbs are back. One of the foxes many eyebrows disappears. Don’t go in. What did they say? Girls only want piffle phings. A vase moon, water, energy crystal ritual, intraps them inside.. he enters a realm of butterflies and flowers. The Fox returns to its normal size. The flowers are speaking and gossiping. The flowers laugh at him. He has business with these flowers. The attemptive murderer is back. They are nymph flowers. The Sprite feels bad about almost killing someone. He got a girl a piffle phing. The sky surfing little ones are back. They are ruthlessly defending the one who they do not even listen to. Back out of the well into the proper realm. 4
