Both of them head back to the house and Shigure quickly becomes familiar of the creature that *uhm* is too friendly to Tohru. And uncovers a relationship that has something to do with Yuki.
Note: For me, the episode is still innocent and doesn't have any of THAT usual adult oriented material. It's still okay for the younger audience provided parental guidance.
Enter Tohru in her second year as a high school student. It's a fresh start and Yuki's helping out with the orientation. The three find out that younger Sohmas are also entering the same high school. This causes greater social instability when a white haired boy, Hatsuharu, and another cute freshman, Momiji, creates their debut with the ultimate student body discipline enforcer, the student council President. After the commotion, Tohru heads to the classroom and a deeper situation comes into play when another Sohma unexpectedly visits the school and meets up with her.
Momiji treats Tohru, Kyo and Yuki to a quiet and rejuvinating weekend at the Sohma Hotsprings. This is truly a big surprise for Tohru. But lies ahead of Tohru is a bigger out of the blue issue waiting for her.

Everybody's busy preparing for the New Year. Tohru, together with her friends, Uo and Hana, and the two Sohmas, Yuki and Kyo, clean the house to get ready for the New Year celebration. On the other note, Shigure's editor, Mi, is nagging and insisting Shigure to finish his new 500-page novel with all her sanity.
When the Sohmas decide to go to the Sohma Main House to celebrate their annual banquet, they soon realize that they'll be leaving a certain someone in the house. It hits them that they will be leaving Tohru in the house to celebrate her own New Year in solitude.
Hatori asks Tohru to visit him in the Sohma main house. She complies and goes to the Main estate. After given a warning from Yuki at the festival not to visit him, she's a bit nervous to talk to Hatori. However, Momiji shows up and guarantees Tohru not to be a bit nervous overboard. Tohru finds out why Hatori insist so much of telling her to leave the Sohmas.
It's another cultural festival. Tohru's class chooses a hit or miss rice ball stand. Yuki is given a rather "unusual" outfit to wear during the festival, which lands the rice ball stand a heap of customers. While everything is going according to progress, Momiji and Hatori show up. They too are members of the Sohma family.
Kyo, Shigure and Kyo lets Tohru live in the house once again. The news got out to Tohru's friends, Hana and Uo, and decide to see if the Sohmas are treating her well and taking real good care of her. Tohru's friends are also girls and it could spell disaster for the Sohmas because of their curse.

After Kyo's mother died, Kazuma took-in Kyo and raised him as his foster son.
When Kazuma sees of Kyo's genuine 'happiness' around Tohru, he wanted to test Tohru's feelings whether he would accept Kyo for who he is by revealing to her the cat's true form. Moreover, Kazuma also wanted to show Kyo that there would be someone who would accept him for his true form.
In the manga, Saki Hanajima, Tohru's psychic friend, took the job as a cook in Kazuma's dojo and implies that they're in a relationship.
A Sohma drops by and visits Shigure's house. This time it's Kagura Sohma. Kyo seems very scared and unparticular of her, however it's the other way around for Kagura. A lot of commotion follows. Kagura finds out that Kyo has been living with another girl, Tohru. One wonders what will happen.

Shigure teasingly calls her Mii-chan. Their relationship appears to be a comic one. Whilse Mitsuru nags Shigure for each manuscript, Shigure either avoids her, goes somewhere else, or falsely claims that he isn't finished yet; thus demanding an extension of the deadline.

Tohru stumbles upon Kyo and Yuki fighting once again. When she tries to stop the fighting, she accidentally runs into and hugs Kyo, making him transform. Kyo gets really angry and, without thinking, calls her a stupid and ugly girl. In effect, Tohru thinks that Kyo hates her. Kyo feels miserable of what happened and decides to pick her up after her part-time job. He apologizes along the way -- in his own way. The next day, on Tohru's way home from work, she meets with Yuki and both of them walk home. After an accidental transformation, Yuki went sentimental and tells Tohru that he's longing to live a normal life.
Mine Kuramae is the always reliable assistant of Ayame Sohma on his business venture with fashion. Mine helps Aya from managing the store to designing clothes. She is highly motivated and dedicated in her work that she doesn't hesitate to try out their latest work.
Tohru is really surprised to find Yuki, Shigure and Kyo turn into animals. The three quickly told Tohru the Sohma Family curse. They told her that the Sohma curse occurs whenever a member of the Sohma family is hugged by a member of the opposite sex, they turn into animals based from the Chinese Zodiac. Later at school, Yuki meets up with Tohru and tells that her memory could be erased for discovering the Sohma curse. Upon returning home, both of them found out that Shigure informed Akito, the head of the Sohmas. The decision of Akito allowed Tohru to stay with the Sohmas, provided that she would never tell anyone the Sohma's secret curse.
Ritsu's mother, Mesho-san, also known as "Okami-san", as she is most often referred to as ('okami' being the Japanese term for the hostess at an onsen), or more rarely, the "Ghost Lady", is introduced, as well as appearing before Ritsu, when Tohru, Momiji, Yuki, and Kyo take a trip to the Sohma Onsen for Momiji's White Day Present for Tohru. As Momiji introduces her to Tohru, Mesho-san at first she seems to be a fragile middle-aged woman who at times seems frightening and ghost-like as she wails and moans rather than compared to her son who usually cries when apologizing, though the simularities between both are very well recognizable.
Mesho-san accompanies Tohru in the spring and converses with her about her son, Ritsu, who she admits to her that Ritsu is the monkey of the zodiac. Although, she didn't mention Tohru whether Ritsu is a boy or a girl. During this time she also apologises to Tohru for she confesses that when she had first heard of someone outside of the Sohma family knowing of the curse, she became worried, but now knowing Tohru and that it is she who is the one who knows, she is "relieved".
Also worth noting is that in the manga there is a small part of the bath scene which was never adapted into the anime which slightly reveals Mesho-san's true feelings about Ritsu. When first hearing about Mesho-san's son, Tohru can not help but ask what he is like, and Mesho-san, though screaming with apologies, replies heartfully "...from the world's point of view he's like that but he's very precious to me deep down. He's very kind. He's my only child..
