Love comedy full blown! The organization of the episode was well done.
Sawashiro Miyuki's fairy tale reading was amazing. She surely is the best voice actress.

Lovely episode.
IMHO one of the best so far. I'm looking forward to seeing that "date" ... haha.

Oh, did you notice something? Don't you think there's somethig odd about this screenshot? ;P

Such a sweet episode! The dynamics between Doujou and Kasahara was even more irresistible than usual... (awww and this time he got to pat her head, too. ;) ) And I really like how Shibasaki and Tezuka are getting closer, they're cute together.

Ditto! Her "witch" tone was really fantastic! (Besides, her voice is really sexy...)

Good call on that one, K4ze! I too thought something was off, but couldn't put my finger on it. That's hilarious, especially the fight between mini-Doujou and mini-Kasahara! XD

Edited to add: Oh, and we did get the explanation regarding the camomile... it was touching, indeed, as you had said, dtshyk. :)

I loved this one, it was so heart-warming ! Even pure comedy/romance episodes are perfectly done in Toshokan Sensou.

Not boring one minute again!

One and the only new tv series that completely satisfies my needs from anime -PERIOD-

it is truely saddening that "toshokan sensou" is extremely underrated compared to Vampire Knight, Soul Eater or Nabari no ou etc...(and i can add even Code Geass R2 to this list as well!),,, ok it sometimes lacks some fluency and might be imperfect at some aspects , but to me it is DEFINITELY better than other anime airing in the same period as toshokan... But 12 episodes is quite short in terms of being able to draw a coherent conclusion, and what is left is only 3 episodes, so i hope they wont finish the series as it is now, and hopefully add a 2nd season with less military scenes but more and more kasaharaXDoujou relationssss XD

what im saying is much more daily lives of the characters might be the perfect choice!! ^^

was simply excellent. and to think that only there are 3 episodes to go. definitely too short and not enough time to develop kasahara and doujou's relationship. was doujou really hinting at a date with kasahara?

I just started today and I was completely hooked. Couldn't stop until I found out that ep. 10 hadn't aired. And I completely agree. This series was way too short in my opinion. How are we going to see how this all ends?
Anyways, this episode was great! Sorta reminded me of Special A and Hikari/Kei, though.

this is the sweetest episode evah!

I was at first reluctant to see the ship between kasahara and Doujo but when this happened, how can I stay reluctant?

good job!

So sweet! That was great, when she said she would stop chasing after Prince Charming's approval and instead try to win his. His reaction was adorable. They're finally getting somewhere.

Can't wait for the next ep! I'm wondering how this will end now. A second season would be great.

Very amusing episode. Kasahara's idea was indeed very original. I laughed when all the kids started climbing Mt. Tezuka.

This episode was cute and amusing. It had me smiling almost through-out the entire episode.

I'm going to be random here but I like that Doujou is shorter than Kasahara but he's not girly.
Don't the shorter male characters also tend to be the feminine ones (or old men)?

Doujo blushed when he turned around, so cute :D!

Really thought he would find out that she found out who her "prince" was . . . Guess not. Anyways, I'm surprised they didn't have Shibisaki at all commenting on her crisis. Or rather she didn't even find out about it, that could have been comedic.

Can I stop fangirling now? NOPE. Because damn Dojo's too handsome (and cute) at the same time! >w<

Kasahara's development is nice as well :)

Now we get a break from all the intense stuff, and have a sit-down romcom for once. The pacing continue on from the previous episode is perfect, and her pervasion towards the entire 'Prince' issue throughout the episode is comical at its finest. Nevertheless, I really wonder if Dojo realised that she has found out about his identity in the end - well, that is for another day!

The amount of tsundere is strong in this. Not just for the clumsy Dojo (and his stealth mission to the girls dorm LEL), but even the stern and serious Hikaru. Everything since the start was warm and bright, I.G really did their all to emphasise the romance in this, top to bottom. The stag beetle scene, the notes, and even the reference to the pawned watch from the previous episode made me laughed hard. Excellent episode, blow me off for saying to tone down on romance previously. Now it will be to serious matters from here on, I guess?

Oh, I get it. Dojo and Kasahara are really good at their jobs, but they're complete losers when it comes to romance, and apparently I'm a sucker for awkward romances like this.

I really liked this episode! :)
Not only because of the shipping that officially takes off between Iku and Dojo (although that's mainly why) but also because it's just an overall cute, lighthearted episode that I like to watch on a rainy day or when I feel down. In fact, I just re-watched the series a couple months ago with a close friend of mine.
Anyway, there are a couple scenes I liked from episode 9 that were distinct enough to me that I can recall them specifically. I appreciated Iku's creativity when she came up with the activity for her practical test, and Dojo's impartial acknowledgement of her success of the test (as opposed to his usual grouchy and stubborn demeanor) was well-deserved and nice to see - it really went to show how their relationship, not only romantically, but also as trusting subordinate and superior, had changed and evolved throughout the course of the show.
