Titles of interest coming to the second cour include:
"That Mizunokoji Boy"—A reference to the four-part manga story That Mizunokoji Girl, which introduces Mendo's rival Tobimaro Mizunokoji and his affectionate sister Asuka.
"Family Feud!!"—The introduction of Ryunosuke Fujinami, a girl forced by her father to live as a boy so she can inherit the family business.
"Indelible Lipstick Magic"—A manga story adapted into episode 110 of the original anime. Lum creates a lipstick that forces its wearers to kiss. Hijinks ensue.
"Drunken Boogie"—A manga and anime story in which Lum and Ten cause havoc after getting drunk on pickled plums.
"Decisive Battle! Tomobiki Queen Contest"—Likely a reference to the Miss Tomobiki Contest, in which girls from across the series compete to see who is the most popular at their school.
