While he bathes in the hot spring with a Wash Cloth on his head, Naru Narusegawa appears for the first time stepping into the hot spring naked while holding a Towel. As Keitaro first meets her, Narusegawa mistakes Keitaro for being Mitsune Konno since her vision wasn't good since she had her glasses off. Naru then tries to bond with Keitaro thinking its Mitsune, and discuss that her breasts are getting bigger and then playful grabs Keitaro but then feels his erection noticing that she is not with Kitsune. Narusegawa then puts glasses on to see that Keitaro is a man and then screams while Keitaro quickly runs out of the hot spring putting a towel on.
