Those dumplings are well served after several of processes, Lum tastes a bit besides the machine, she concludes that Ataru will love this taste.

Later, Lum visits Ataru and brings some tsukimidango for him. In order to let him taste the moon gazing, Lum lies at him that she claims that those tsukimidango are not made by her. But Ataru does not feel that way.

The moon shines brightly than the other nights, both of them sit at the top of the roof, taking some dumplings and enjoy. Ten arrives and Lum intends to share some moon gazing for him. While Ten asks her whether she made those dumplings or not, Lum concedes. Once Ataru hears it, he splits out quickly and scolds her for dishonesty. Lum claims herself that she tries the hardest to cheer him, but Ataru refuses and keeps consider her always adding troubles onto him. At sudden, Ataru's face changes into wolf, Lum realizes that perhaps those moon gazing are not suitable for humans to intake. And so Ataru drives away Lum and forces her to find a treatment for returning his appearance back to normal.

Ataru's family feels upset on his transformation. Ataru's Mother says that his son becomes a tanuki man and it is really shame to meet the other people afterwards, but Ataru's Father claims that Ataru looks more like a dog man than tanuki man. Soon both of parents start the quarrel. Ataru decides to take a walk at the street for avoiding their meaningless quarrel with Ten. The main problem that Ataru concern is he cannot make a girl hunt by using wolf man form. He tries an experiment on a young girl who also walks on the street, but the girl runs away.

At this rate, Ataru has an idea to scare Onsen-Mark for revenge. Ten tries to stop him, but it is useless. He quickly rushes to Tomobiki High to meet his teacher at the nightwatch. Unexpectedly, once Ataru opens the door, Onsen-Mark also in wolf man form, eating the leftover dumplings that made by Lum. Lum comes out from the back of the nightwatch with a pack of antidote that can brings a person back to human form. But the antidote is over bitter to intake, Ataru runs away again for avoiding Lum as far as he can. Lum tries to explain the effect of not taking antidote for Ataru, but he just do not want to listen.

On the street, Ataru sees a dog that having a similar face as him. He takes off the cloth and puts it onto the dog. At the same moment, he hides himself at the back of bushes, leaving the clothed-dog at the wide park. Not longer later, Lum arrives with surprise expression that she thinks that dog is Ataru, she forces the dog to intake the bitter antidote. Lum hugs it for showing her apology, but Ataru never expects her tears slowly run down at her cheek silently.

After several minutes, Lum stands up and tries to take the dog back home. Ataru quickly shows himself at the back of bushes, unluckily he is completely a werewolf form. Lum recognizes him, again she places Ataru into her warm embrace and asks him for taking antidote. Ataru seems agree to intake it.

Back to Ataru's house, Ataru's parents starts another conversation about the appearance of clothed-dog. Although Ataru returns his form from wolf form, his lips seems to be take a certain time to recover.
