THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Wow what a crazy revelation *_*

Never knew he/she was a trap. Amazing how they managed to cover it but looking back it all makes sense. Its kinda tragic/sad/cute how the backstory unfolded

GOOD GOD Yukari is even MORE beautiful this time around AGAIN?!?! how do they manage to do it :( the only thing i didnt like this time was her hair... I might have to look at it again but too many loops imo i like the braiding though.

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it -- Voltaire

ITS A TRAP!!!

In all seriousness like everyone Yukari looked freaking awesome, hair could've been a little better but I am no expert. Great episode.

Caroline looked gr8 too.

They made it quite obvious in the beginning that Isabella was a man. The backstory was nice though.

'Sebastian'
'Obocchan'
The beginning got me thinking they stole it from Kuroshitsuji or something but this series is obviously a lot older than that.


BOY? I'm SHOCKED.

Same here. xD

I need to re-watch it. I made a long pause between episodes 7 and 8 (around 4 months actually) and I forgot a lot of things.

hehhe. aww sweet isabel! i had a hunch that this was her secret. in the first episode miwako mentioned that they couldn't change infront of the boys so it makes sense. she looked so kawaii as a little chibi in that dress. ^__^

blue roses are really pretty indeed. however yukari's hair to me looked really unattractive. Much too overdone like everyone said.

Finally Isabella's come out..was getting worried. Took 9 episodes for my suspicions to be answered.

i love this anime and anything done by yazawa-sama! the scene of george making the dress for isabella was so touching and beautiful. i'm not normally interested in fashion, per se, but this anime (and the manga too) drew me in from beginning to end...

Nah I agree about the hair! Looked a little funny to me, but the dress was pretty darn stunning. The colour of the roses will match perfectly... I wonder how they'll fit in with the whole outfit!

I remember back in one of the earlier discussion threads, someone mentioned the possibility of Isabella being a guy. After that, I never gave up the suspicion... Seems like a lot of people were vindicated in this episode, finding out that they're right about Isabella's gender. :P

Didn't see that revelation coming. This episode was great though, like all the others.

I saw it coming but it was nice seeing some little backstory on Isabella.

Little George had swag even back then.

Izabella, say it ain't so! I was hesitant to give myself up to a full-on crush because of the suspicions that she was a actually a guy early on in the show. But still, I thought he/she was the most beautiful character in the series. Oh, well. (sigh)

I predict that Caroline will do just fine in the modeling show, but won't land the contract with the company. Then she'll go back to school/college, be grateful to her mom and George will stick with her. I'd rather have her fulfill all of her dreams though, but it doesn't feel like it's going to end that way.

Haha Izabella was too perfect, you knew there's a catch XD!

I have a bad feeling about that Asou woman...

Impressive episode and backstory! Really great development and well it was rather obvious Izabella was a boy tbh, there were various hints in the past but to my surprise was that Hiroyuki-kun actually said that he likes Yukari, well I wonder what the show has to offer!

I knew she was a trap from the first time they hinted about it. Still nicely done. And I love the dress they made, it's so beautiful now it's finished.

Oh, I kinda thought it was obvious that Isabella is a man identifying as a woman from the first half of episode 1?
Maybe it's because I know someone in real life like that that the subtly and reality portrayed in her character was easy for me to pick up on... the situation really is portrayed wonderfully though!

NORIJI!!!! Aw, it was nice that he had a little cameo here! I loved him in Gokinjo Monogatari!! <3

It's kind of sad how Isabella's arc is so far down in the series, but I did like that they finally talked about her and where she comes from! Love the trans representation... not very common in anime! Ai Yazawa is truly forward thinking when it comes to any of her manga characters!

The reactions at the end of the episode were pure gold. Isabella's gender was almost established at the first episodes when Miwako said: "That room is full of just boys".

Anyone feel an ominous and uncomfortable presence in the anime? I felt it when George was cutting the roses and when the mysterious blue liquid stained Miwako’s hands...
