Reread 2011. Mostly, this volume is about Watanuki giving people presents and Yûko makes vague ominous comments. Watanuki gives Himawari a bird, the bird a name (Tampopo), the jealous pipe fox a name (Mugetsu), and various people White Day presents or other return presents: the fox cub, Himawari, Dômeki. Gloves and mittens. He knitted them himself. (Of course he did.) Yûko gives Dômeki the egg, and instructions on using it we don't hear. Watanuki begins to mix up reality and dreams.
There's also a one-off plot about a girl who is afraid of the strange noises she hears and makes an unwise wish.
