The titles of the Classic DP episodes follow the style used by Takachiho in his novels. Kei narrates all of those stories, so the chapters usually have titles like "It ain't so bad when you jump right in!" or "I'm a teacher. Got somethin' to say about it?" The words in italics represent katakana, while words in boldface were given as romaji <Roman characters> in the original. The translations are my own; portions that I'm doubtful of are in purple.

The episode ratings are my own opinions, ranking them in terms of quality of the stories -- 4 being the best and 1 being the weakest

There is a separate section of commentary on the episodes, discussing things like cultural references, in-jokes, and fun facts; you can jump to it by clicking on the appropriate episode number. The material is not intended as plot synopses. CAUTION: it does contain numerous spoilers.

And why does Kei's childhood friend have to turn up now?!
