The Lord of the Ring (指輪物語, Yubiwa Monogatari) is the second episode of the 2007 anime series Seto no Hanayome.


Nagasumi enjoys his first date with Sun at the Bon festival. However, most stalls are operated by the Seto Gang. Later, Nagasumi soon finds out that Sun's legs revert into a tail when she is splashed with water, therefore he must protect her by desiccating her legs.




  • The episode's title is a reference to the book series, The Lord of the Rings.
  • When Sun eats taiyaki at the festival, she makes an "ugū" (うぐぅ) sound. This is a reference to Ayu Tsukimiya from Kanon. Ayu's favorite food is taiyaki and her infamous catchphrase is "ugū".


Fujishiro: [after Nagasumi tosses him into the woods] No fair! Are you shitting me?! That fappy bastard just won?! Hey, get over here, sissy boy! Help me get back into my tank!
Nagasumi: I can't understand you when you make everything sound like a question!
