Nice episode. I really liked when Taiga stuffed her crepe into Ruyji's mouth :)

A bit sad for her in the end, even though that was expected...

Geez, why did they fight in the first place? It's not like Ryuuji knows Taiga's father from always, so why does he defend him that much... Why does he keep on interfering with Taiga's business, it really should depend on her not on what Ryuuji tells her! D: But yeah, I understand Taiga's situation... :(

Good episode, this keeps on getting interesting!

ryuuji is reflecting the absence of his own father onto taiga's father, maybe he feels that taiga is being selfish because she can't appreciate what he doesn't have (im sure there is a good reason for that). he also feels sorry for taiga's father because he seems to be working hard for her.

i don't trust taiga's father, he looks like a very selfish man.
his wife probably left him and now he's feeling alone and wants taiga back. he's probably gonna end up hurting her aga- oh wait he already did. how could he miss her play at the cultural festival?

^Person above me watched show by closing his eyes.

Also, I was pretty sad for Taiga when her father didn't show up, poor kitty.

Am I the only person who is not feeling alright with Ami's change?

Damn. I'm starting to think that Taiga's dad is really a douche bag.
Ryuuji is just rooting for him because he doesn't have a father so maybe he just wants Taiga to have a father, that's all.

Smell me smell me if I smell bad! Man that was good...
I realised that Taiga uses good her height... I mean she hits everyone with her head. xD
I wonder what Minori knew about her father... well she knows Taiga better then Ryuuji so we will have to wait and see. :1
This scenes was win...
I just love when Aisaka acts like kid... ^^

No wonder even I would freak out if I saw someone with scary face like Ryuuji's with that makeup...

I kinda felt hollow here... that face doesn't fit on Ya-chan... She is extremely worried about Aisaka... :/

Well ryuuji obviously cant see any negatives in having taiga's father come back for her. Seeing how badly he misses his own, he can only think of positive happenings from her father coming back..

Taiga's father is a real arsehole and you can tell from this episode.

Kushieda is the type of person who can see the true nature in people and the hate she expressed for Taiga's father foreshadows that this is only the beginning of a bunch of things the father's going to do.

I bet that Taiga's father's going to do something extremely outrageous or something and they're gunna go back to their original relationship.

Ryuuji is being so one-sided about the situation because he wants his father to come back. Even though in the first episode he shows some hatred for his father, but only because his father left the family.

Deep down he really wants his father back so he didn't want Taiga to pass up the opportunity. Thats why he's so blinded about Taiga's father and can't see his true nature.

D'aw, I was hoping the dad would be a sympathetic character. But I guess all adults are jerks or pure idiots in this show. :'L

I think Kitamura is really teasing her.

I really don't think her dad will show up.

Really, really great episode. I was suspicious of Taiga's dad but didn't think much of it, but... obviously, if even Kushieda dislikes him so much than there has to be a problem with the dude himself, not Kushieda - who, Ami said, is like "sunshine" usually (or something like that). Also, he looked like he was clearly out Taiga's apartment without her there... So maybe he went ahead, did it without her approval, and then justified it to her afterwards or something?

Ami seems to have become a little bit more likable as a character, also! Kinda refreshing, haha. The wrestling show was so silly that it merely would've been strange if the audience didn't find it entertaining. x]

I think Minori knows something about Taigas dad that Ryuuji doens't know. Otherwise, she wouldn't be that mad. Maybe he's been a disappointment in the past too. The pro-wrestling show was good.

Was I supposed to recognize who Minori was dressed up as? Because on the one hand, it seemed rather familiar, but I can't decide whether or not that familiarity is all in my head...

Pretty strong episode. Definitely siding with Minorin here and not just because she's my favorite character. She obviously knows Taiga's situation better since she's been her friend for a while and, as stated before, Ryuuji is pushing his feelings and so on onto Taiga. That makes him human though, so I'm actually glad for this development.

I mean, I thought Taiga's dad looked like a nice guy, but I guess I tend to trust people too easily..

Still though, I think Ryuuji acted in the right way. I mean, if you just get angry over something and not explain why (like Minori did), of course others who think differently are going to get upset, even if you're right.

Ryuji's decision was wrong, but his intentions were right. I prefer him to Minorin. Feel bad for Taiga though.

I take back what I said earlier. They should have gone with cosplay/maid café, the show was boring as hell. I feel like the only one who felt like this.

Taiga's dad being a douche was expected. Poor Taiga :(

I sort of agree with both Ryuuji and Minorin. I wonder though if Minorin actually met Taiga's dad or she just heard of him from Taiga.
I feel sad for Ryuuji because he will be probably disappointed that Taiga's dad really was a douche.

Poor Taiga...and poor Ryuuji :( It's obvious that he's projecting his father issues onto Taiga..

I think Taiga is better off with Ryuuji and Yasuko as a family than her father. He's an asshole. :/

i think Minorin had a father who abandoned her, cause any other person with good family wold never act like her (wold not get so fired up), even it the person sees her friend hurt bi her father

but from her talk it seemed she has actually meet that bastard before

I love how how hard Taiga tries to be strong for the sake of Ryuuji. I feel really, really bad :(

It looks like Ryuuji misjudged Taiga's dad to me. I think he's going to turn out to be a real douche. If you really looked at the preview for 13, it seems Ryuuji's about to fight someone with Taiga looking on - I'd put money on it being her dad.

Ryuuji versus her dad would be sweet, plus it would end that little drama quick, which I would be glad for. I don't want to see Minori and Ryuuji at odds anymore. It breaks my heart.


Now I knew from the first time we met Tiaga's Dad that he was going to be a douche. I just knew it. First of all, even though Tiaga treats Ryuuji badly sometimes she is still grateful for all he does for her. If her Dad hadn't been a douche I do not think she would have been so against him as she was. Secondly, minorin's reaction to Tiaga's dad being back in her life shows me that Tiaga has told her some things that Ryuuiji just doesn't know. He is putting too much of himself into his reaction. The reason he's so blind to her dad being a douche is because he wishes he could have his own father back. He is being selfish and Tiaga is paying the price.
