THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION. DO NOT DISCUSS THE LIGHT NOVEL BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Now that really escalated. Wow, Linda, I'm speechless.

I thought she was going to kill Banri for a moment there. Point taken, this episode really makes the standard of 'love hurts'. It's like whoever Banri chooses, someone is going to get hurt in the end. Well, that's just life. Anyways, intense episode.

This show is going insane.
Last few episodes i thought that Linda had given up on Banri but now he is different.\\

He was acting like a girl and set himself up for a very bad NTR but now he is THE MAN!!!

Things are getting a lot more intense than I expected. My predictions are pretty much confirmed from last week. Koko is just abandoning Banri so she doesn't get hurt from the possibility of Banri forgetting her.

If it is going to have a happy ending, I'm hoping this tension doesn't get dragged on too long.

Someone needs to go Yandere. Anyway, Koko driving me up the wall and I hope she stays single.

Also, does anyone know if this is getting an Open ending/Original ending?

A lot of emotions happening in this episode, especially towards the end. Koko acting like nothing happened earlier in the episode. This is getting good.

I actually felt shocked when Koko told everyone she broke up with Banri. I haven't finished Toradora, but I'm very anxious to know if this show will have a happy ending or will everything just go down the hill. Only 2 more episodes left.

Nana was awesome. "Don't say you want to die so easily. I'll kill you!"

Sigh..... everything fell apart. Banri must feel hopeless right now. I wonder if he'll end up back together with Koko.

and tell what you think...but i think that koko is trying to hate banri so she can wash away her love for him....also get his friends to distant themselves from her cause it would be easier to hate banri without them breathing down her neck ......but man she is seriouly losing it

The last volume released last week and in the LN, the end is a definitive end.


Well, that's somewhat good to hear. No original ending, thank god.

What a turn the story has taken this episode, I really wasn't expecting much out of the 'revelation' last week, but it makes sense now that I realize Koko saw the video of Banri calling to Linda in desperation, as if she didn't exist and Linda was the only person he knew.

There are so many characters making wrong decisions it's almost funny. I just hope everything ties up well in the end, isn't rushed and is preferably not completely predictable.

(I choose you, Linda! :3)

It's easy to want to be mad at Koko here but would you wanna stick around while the person you love destroys themselves and refuses to actively do anything about it?

Add in that Banri really does temporarily forget her during each of his episodes and he's extremely sure that it might be permanent. This whole thing is heartbreaking and i hate seeing Banri like this but it's gotta hurt being in Koko's position too.

I rather Banri be with Koko.

You have to look at this from both sides.

Linda had her chance, and yeah she wishes she could go back and fix that, but she sees Banri and Koko, and telling him to not make the same mistake pretty much I guess.

She's happy for him, but at the same time all hurt I'm guessing.
Though I'm all frustrated now. :[

Uhhhh wtf is going on? This episode was too funny for me. Seems like an ass pull attempt at forced drama. Sure I can understand the video and all but even for Kouko it just felt way too out of character for her. It was just too over-dramatic in my opinion. Feels like a rushed attempt to add a bit of drama before the seasons ends. I really don't know how to feel about this episode.

This episode just proves that she can't deny it anymore and that Banri memories coming back and his constant flashbacks of Linda kinda surely implied this sort of ending

#feels thursday.

Well, I must say WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW. This episode was intense. Really freaking Intense. I was always on team linda but I would be fine with any but if you listen to what linda says she basically says its too late for her but you can still be with koko.

Koko seems to be running away from being hurt if banri does forget her because he'll go straight to linda. I do think Koko will be the girl but personally Linda admitted she liked him and it would feel better if he ended up with linda.

Come on thursday we need you to come around again really fast! NagiAsu, Samumenco, even Mahou sensou was pretty dang good this week. Top it all off with an amazing Golden time and you've got

lol Koko is being a bitch right now, sad to say this that i'm a bit disappointed, but who knows what will happen, i'm guessing that before episode 23 ends he'll be back to his old self and forget Koko..and Koko might regret this later. . .

Glad Yana didn't over react to the situation, that's what you call a friend..not others like goes suddenly off and punches you without hearing any explanations,

looking forward to the next episode. . .I hope at the end whatever Banri's decision is
it will turn out to be good. . .

BTW, anyone here have any idea if the light novel is finished or something...? I want a little sneak peak :P

12:54 koko rape face

------------------
1. Good to see Nana being open w/ banri

2. Once a romantic relationship goes sour, it's impossible to go back to being friends cuz it ended bad.

3. The drama scene with koko and linda was way over the top. Too much screaming & cheese.

4. Idk what to say. Koko has become casually heartless. How spectacular. I've come to like koko's transformation.

sigh... now I'm not sure if I should root for a pairing and for which pairing I should go. Ofc Koko's side/view has to be considered too but I still almost ended up hating her throughout this episode.
guess I'll go for Oka x Banri xD xD

There you go. Banri asked an unstable loony to be his girlfriend and this is the consequence.

If he still ends up with Koko, there's a lifetime of pain ahead of him.

If I could pick the end couples I'd say Yana x Oka, Linda x Koshino, Nana x Banri (he and Linda could use a fresh start) and Koko x her psychosis. (Alternatively, Yana x Linda and Banri x Oka could work well)

I don't see that happening though.

Too much yelling and crying this episode.

The way Linda came out with it though was fucking perfect, I will admit that.

Koko has always been a strange one but her reaction to things here is pretty understandable.

All that time and feelings invested washed away by memory loss?

Protect that brittle heart of yours, girl, I don't hate you.

(Your attitude, though, could use a bit of work...)

Then suddenly - jarringly happy music!

Also, the preview voice over - Linda trying to give back Banri's hair made me lol.

Damn that was kinda intense. Felt a little forced though imo, but I thought it was still pretty decent. Culmination of a really odd relationship I guess.

I still like Koko more, but damn both her and Banri really need to straighten their stuff out.

I really enjoyed watching this episode but I feel like they're putting a lot of drama when they have only two episodes left...
I liked Nana and Banri scene, she tried to help and she didn't do that bad.
Koko, she dumped Banri for her own sake but she's trying to be friends like nothing really happened... What the hell was that?, are you serious? In 24 hours? That's too much and wasn't going to end well.
Then we have Linda with Banri, she wishes to go back but she knows that it can't happen so the scene felt a bit awkward... At least Yana now knows the truth about Banri and Linda.
New Banri said that he was ready to have Old Banri back but he must fight for Koko because giving up is easy but he's not going anywhere with that.
And I still think that he should go to the hospital.
I'm learning English so maybe I make mistakes :)

hahaha if he goes to Linda now it'll be troll,whole anime u develop relations between Koko and Banri even the OPs and EDs are about them and u telling me they wont be together? Bullshit that'll be like Canvas 2's ending which was pretty sucky :s

anyway i understand why Koko is doing this,Banri is really unstable and everything but i dont think she gave up on him. She prolly thinking about sth else

and anyway WHY Is the preview again so happy-like? -.- makes us waiting for next week all the more painful

I'll think we should wait a bit before jumping to conclusions. Like the troll preview of the 22nd at the end of the episode 21 where everything seemed fine.

I think that Linda and Banri isn't out of the question anymore considering that now New Banri has opened the gate for old Banri implying that he finally accepting his old self and everything that it implies

I know I wouldn't be able to onesidedly say "oh, we are now just friends, no big deal"

Besides, in said tape Banri clearly said he wanted to be with Koko. Sure, he is not very stable himself, but could you so easily abandon him after that if you were in her place?

The drama was great and I loved the time he spent with Nana.
