You know something is wrong with the main focus of the show when the short diversion to Chouun and Bachou (along with a 2 minute documentary on bamboo shoots) is much more amusing than the main story of Ryuubi and her traveling harem...er...traveling group.
As for that traveling group, while stopping at an inn for some dumplings (SERIOUS dumplings!), an unknown girl wearing rather limited clothing (as in primitive, not sexy revealing), sees them and seems to recognize someone in the group. Following that, while crossing a river, a large log rather inconveniently comes along almost hitting Ryuubi and Gien as they were crossing, though Gien smashes it into toothpicks with her giant metal club thingy (yes, that's the technical term for the weapon that Gengan gave her). Later, while they wait for their clothes to dry, Gien senses a presence in the woods and runs off to find it, but the girl from before artfully hides in the trees.
Definitely something suspicious here.
