Here's What Happened Before My Life as Inukai-san's Dog Episode 5
Pochita's heart skipped a beat when he saw Inukai in her revealing cat costume! In fact, he was more than ecstatic as Inukai also channeled her inner cat!
Inukai takes out an old-fashioned dog translator that resembles a Tamagotchi. She can understand what Pochita's bark means and what's on his mind by using the dog translator.
Inukai puts it to the test by asking Pochita if he likes her, and the dog barks that he does. However, the dog translator is ineffective, as Inukai's expression shifts from happy to shocked.
As it turns out, the dog translator informs Inukai that Pochita dislikes humans, which is the complete opposite of what he wanted to say.
Inukai began acting like a cat in heat once more in the hopes of attracting Pochita's attention.
But before she can do anything more outrageous, Inukai's mother storms into her room to find out what she is up to. She also cautions her daughter to exercise restraint.
Inukai stops messing around, but she continues by asking Pochita if she is a weirdo because she likes things that most people don't.
This reminds Pochita of a time when Inukai assured him that he was not unusual.
Back then, Pochita saw himself as a strange person who was different from others because his past self liked plants despite being a guy.
But for Inukai, Pochita isn't strange at all, because it's fine to like things that other people don't.
He had a crush on the ice princess Inukai ever since that day.
Back in the present, Pochita assured Inukai that she was not strange at all by barking positively.
Thankfully, Inukai's expression softened, making it appear that the dog translator correctly translated his message.
Following that, Inukai receives a phone call from Nekotani, who informs her that she has forgotten her pen in her room.
Therefore, she prefers that Inukai return it to her house and study there instead. She also requests that Inukai bring Pochita with her for the weekend.
In the following days, Pochita notices that Inukai is arriving home later than usual and appears tired due to her part-time work.
While Inukai sleeps on her bed, Pochita looks back on his escape plan to return home and investigate what happened to him before he became a dog.
Since Inukai is bringing him into Nekotani's house over the weekend, Pochita intends to flee by using a courier to deliver a shopping parcel to Nekotani's house.
When Nekotani opens the door for the courier, he will seize the opportunity to run as fast as he can.
However, in order to carry out this plan, Pochita must use Inukai's phone to place an order online.
He immediately realizes that he needs Inukai's fingerprint to unlock the phone after touching it.
Unfortunately, Inukai grabbed Pochita's tail and embraced him. Pochita begins licking her fingers in an attempt to break free from Inukai's grip, knowing that Inukai is extremely ticklish.
Inukai does, indeed, let him go. He also unlocks her phone, but then he notices his image as Inukai's wallpaper.
Despite this, Pochita places an order online that will be delivered to Nekotani's house on time.
However, he begins to ponder his decision. After all, if he reverts to human form, Inukai will remain as estranged from him as before.
Before the episode concludes, Inukai commands Pochita to be a good boy because they are close to Nekotani's house.
