Episode 4 of Kuragehime, “Let’s Meet at the Aquarium” (水族館で逢いましょう), begins with the Amamizukan residents cooking sweet potatoes, where Tsukimi suddenly has a flashback to a similar situation with her mother. Except her mother had doubled over at the end, so it’s a sad flashback that sends Tsukimi into a crying fit to the confusion of the other residents. Meanwhile, Shuu still has no clue that Tsukimi is the lady of his dreams, while Kuranosuke still has no clue where his mother is despite having broken into his father’s room.
Episode 3 of Kuragehime, “Enchanted” (魔法をかけられて), begins with Kuranosuke dressing up to the chagrin of the male members in the family. His internal monologue reveals that the biggest reason he cross-dresses is to destroy any prospect of himself becoming a politician, something he loathes of ever becoming. Obviously the father does know of Kuranosuke’s habits, and Kuranosuke was just avoiding him in the previous episode because an encounter would just raise a bothersome fuss.
Episode 2 of Kuragehime, “Sukiyaki Western Matsusaka” (スキヤキ・ウエスタン・マツサカ), starts out from the end of the previous episode. Tsukimi is desperately trying to hide the existence of a fashionable person from the other residents of the Amamizukan, presumably fearing that it might end up with her being kicked out. It’s even worse that the person in question is male, as Tsukimi’s query to the reclusive Mejiro about what punishment she should receive for what she poses as a hypothetical situation is death.
One blurb for Kuragehime says:
The story centers around Kurashita Tsukimi, a huge fan of jellyfish and a girl who moves to Tokyo to become an illustrator. She moves into an apartment complex that is full of fujoshi with a no-men-allowed rule. However, one day, Tsukimi invites a stylishly fashionable woman to stay at her room at Amamizukan — only to discover that the guest is not who she seems to be.
