This series was always good in my opinion. But now... it's grade freaking a! I laughed soooo hard at Taiga'S dirty tactics + "i thought she was armed" and it was soooo ridiculously sweet at how concerned she was with Ryuuji. I can live without the dog thing and picturing a different pink haired wand toting mini tsundere but omgoodness everything else is the best.

Yes, no Inko-chan!
Also, Taiga fights dirty, very dirty.

Hmmm I preferred the novel's approach, but they pulled it off quite nicely here despite the cutting everywhere. =)

How come no one mentioned this part?

The written comments on the notes being passed around class:

Ami's mine, sorry arl - Haruta

........ Were you trying to write "all"? - Student 1

Aren't you kinda screwed up to be unable to write "all"? - Student 2

You cheated your way into this school, didn't you? - Student 3

Just LOL. Plus Minorin and her antics XD
I am loving this anime more and more ^^

Feel free to say that i`m wrong, but a girl saying that a guy is hers seems more than a love confession than any other thing else.

No, really.
This anime keeps on making me change my opinions.
@ first i was liking Taiga, then hating her, then going Meh, and now "FUK YEAH", probably hating again next episode....
as for Ami, i was like, fuk, omg someone kill her, then liking here, then going "Fuk Yeah" and now meh, probably ending in meh.
as for ryuuji, LOL, pwnzors, okay..., w00t,\o\ and now as wtf! dense bastard. probably ending in meh.
kushieda never grew on me, but i think she is a good character....
Just like that glasses guy.

Was i the only guy who went OMG FUCK YEAH! on Taiga saying that?

No, rly. the first 3 pages had almost no reaction about that.
Its not like was liking some reaction using [size =999] but it seemed to me a bit "underhyped".

Love confession? Nah, that'd be way too soon in the series, if that's the way they're going with this. If it does turn that way, I'm thinking a final episode thing, but honestly, it's definitely becoming a family relationship. There's a love, but it's not romantic.

So basically everybody wants Ryuuji. OK, I understand Taiga's feelings, but Ami? I don't mind her personality, but she makes the show feel like a harem.

Still, Taiga's possessiveness of Ryu is silly but cute.

I don't think Ami makes the show into a "harem" at all. Ami is teasing Ryuuji so she can get back at Taiga. Ami figures Taiga has serious feelings for Ryuuji and is using that to her advantage that's all it is. But Ami figured this from the moment she came on the show which wasn't the case at all. We all know that we didn't get "real" proof that Taiga had feelings for Ryuuji until episode 8. Taiga appreciated him and cared that he cared for her and she returned the feelings, but it wasn't translating to love, at seems as such in her mind from what I could see. Episode 7 definitely laid out that Ami was a tease and did all she did so she could show up Taiga, while Taiga was on a whole other wavelength in that episode and it had nothing to do with any romantic feelings for Ryuuji.

Episode 8 was perfect for showing the depth of Taiga's feelings (which is easily apparent now), besides Taiga no one really was too scared for Ryuuji especially in the women. Minori was just her usual self and sorry to say Ami was indifferent and when I saw her suck out her tongue I figured that was her way of saying that she figured Taiga's feelings wen thtat way.

Minorin was full of win, as always.
Taiga was ok
i loved minorin's eye drawing xD
i started laughing when the music started playing, and taiga was showed practicing....
ami was pretty cute in this episode..... i think she is growing into me way too much...
lol @ jet taiga.
Yasuko.... she is a..... weird... yet cute.... yet..... weird mother....
Taiga used a dirty trick.... that was definitely not fair (somehow glad she got her leg cramped)
Taiga put on too much of a drama, for only her "dog"... now....
i so wanted to see more ryuuji x ami... taiga is ruining it...

Ami certainly brings her assets to this show. The swimming contest was awesome, very creative.

Taiga screaming "Ryuuji..." at the top of her lungs somehow seemed wrong for her character. She's probably changing because of him though so I guess it might be logical.

Minori is just an accessory to the cast as this point, she doesn't really feature and honestly, I don't mind. Ami, Taiga and Ryuuji are more than enough to keep this show entertaining for now.

Best episode <3

Superb episode! I hope I'm not alone, but I really like Ami too. She's a "fresh" character.

You're not alone, Ami is already on my favorites list :D

Great episode, like the rivalry idea, brings out the best in people (if the not the worst..). Taiga really learnt how to swim pretty fast (Lol at least the propelling speed was great!). It was sweet how Taiga and Ryuuji became closer in this episode, and how in the end Taiga saved Ryuuji from drowning. What's going to happen next? hmm?

Probably one of my favorite episodes.. mainly because Taiga admitted that Ryuuji was her's! Even if she wants to say she was just claiming him as "her dog".

Oh my fuck. This show is terrible. Absolutely awful, but somehow still watchable. I really should drop this, but I think I'll stick it out a little longer.

Haha Taiga is great. Nice strategies there! ("I see hair" XD)

Also I understand Taiga's feeling, even if she says she doesn't like Ryuuji it's obviously a lie. Yes, I also know that feeling of "He is mine. I don't want anyone to touch him" xD

But oh well, even if Ami won, everything was fine at the end, so it really doesn't matter :P

Did anyone else realise Taiga only started liking ryuuji (spelling?) when ami showed interest in him. So typical females.... "omg a supermodel likes him, that means if he starts dating me instead i would raise my status and be as pretty as a supermodel." Even though its suppose to be "true love" in this show its not how it works irl.

Well Taiga got short tempered this time and agreed to impossible for her mission... again.
She is such a mess, how not to love her? <3
That paper that everyone write about was funny part. But they had to add chilly to that soup... For this I meant that Ryuuji made air plane and hit Taiga in head... Man I died when I saw her angry face. :3
Well practice was pretty much ok, and there is little drama added that they got into fight right before match... Thank God there was Ryuuju's drunk okasan to make him understand that he is needed by her side...
It was touching when she saved him and when she yelled at everyone...
I started crying when she yelled: "RYUUJI IS MINE! NOBODY ELSE TOUCH HIM!"
But she got away with it with telling that he is her dog and that she has to look out for him... ^^
Great episode, more filled with feelings, I wonder when will Ryuuji start to act more like her... =_=

She's saying that he's her dog, that's very insulting I'm surprised that Ryuuji doesn't say anything to her.

Kushieda is the official LOL character of this series now.

But lots of funny moments this time around. It's also nice to see things develop on Ryuuji's and Taiga's end.
