Original Air Date - January 8, 2009.
A rumor starts, that anyone who touches Taiga will be granted happiness or one wish. The cultural festival pictures are for sale. While Taiga buys the picture of her and Yūsaku dancing, Minori notices Ryūji buying a picture of both of them running towards the finishing line holding hands. She decides to buy it too. Ami is complimented as being mature all day, but after bumping into Ryūji at the market she is told that she behaves more like a kid. She later tells her mother that she wants to stay. Yūsaku is told something by the student council president and goes to contemplate it, running into Taiga along the way. Taiga returns to Ryūji's house where his mother boasts that the three of them are like a family. Everyone else is left to contemplate what it is they are wishing for from the Palmtop Tiger legend.
