Yeah, I pretty much knew that her father was a douche. Minori wouldn't say something like this for no reason. I guess that Ryuuji will work out the father case. But still, I think that is relation with Minori will stay tainted...

Man up and apologize already, Ryuuji.

Ami is redeeming herself a bit.

And yes, Taiga's dad is undoubtedly a douche. Ryuuji just had daddy issues so he thinks Taiga should be happy to have a father in her life at all. I'm sure he will soon find out that he;s wrong.

Just because Ryuuji has some father issues doesn't allow him to mess others' lives. Ryuuji think he knows everything about Taiga even though Minorin has known her for a lot longer. The reason why he was so one-sided could be because he didn't even bother to ask Taiga for the full story and blindly believed the crap her dad spilled out.

Great episode, ooh Ryuuji and Minorin fight :O

And am I the only one who likes Ami a lot more after this episode? She seems a lot more friendlier and sweet to Ryuuji in this ep., and she wasn't faking it, either.

And Taiga's father never showed up... that bastard. Hopefully Ryuuji will apologize to Minorin, and Taiga, too.

Minorin obviously knows what's happened in the past with Taiga, they've been super close for a while now, seems to me like Taiga is exactly who we've seen her as, someone who, when she trusts, she trusts with her heart, fully, in her own way of course, but fully nonetheless, and we know she wants to believe in people just as much as she wants people to believe in her. My theory is that, the father does indeed treat her like shit, but she wants to love him and trust him no matter what, unfortunately, she knows that she's a softy, and that if she does give him a chance, she'll fall for his bullshit again, which is why she was so adamant about not talking to him, knowing how she'd fall and all, but Ryuuji's face when talking about his dead father was too much for her poor little heart, and she did it for him. =(

Ryuuji is so fucking stupid, on my god. You don't simply try to argue about Taiga's life with someone who knows her for a far longer time than you. It was obvious that Minori knew stuff about Taiga's past and father that Ryuuji didn't. Why didn't he realize that?

Either way, this was a strong episode. Very emotional. I felt bad for Taiga :( Her father is a scumbag. I felt sorry for Minori too, she didn't deserve being yelled at like that. Also, Ami's character is slowly growing on me.

Taiga has a shitty father and Kushieda knew it all along.

Yet Ryuuji has his own problems without a father figure in his life

You can't blame Ryuuji, considering his situation with his father. But dammit if every protagonist doesn't fuck up with the girl they like in every anime. Also, he should keep his hair like it was when he had the face paint on. Because honestly his hairstyle looks kind of dumb. And I didn't think I'd say this, but Taiga is growing on me.

This was a pretty intense episode. I like to see a new turn on the obligatory school festival episode every school anime has ut not only that the emotion was very deep. Keeping me on the edge of my seat here with this awesome series

TOTAL OURAN REFERENCE THERE. the person was even dressed as tamaki suoh from one of the episodes

I cannot even put into words how I'm feeling about Taiga's so -called "father" abandoning her like that. he totally fucking flaked out on going to see her perform.

Minorin may not have all the information of Taiga's father...He's a jerk. She is trying to protect Taiga from him. and I really admire that about her.

Ryuji making taiga blush though is always a little happiness.

Am only 30% trusting that Ami "changed" I don't buy it.

Yuri-sensei needs to get a man.

Ya-chan and her boobs. That's all.

Back to Taiga. I think she's safer with Ryuji. Right where she is is where she belongs. Her"father" wants to take her away from the people who actually want her around. And that is is the best for her, to be where she is.

This. Also, if they're willing to do that, then I bet this...

...And after the effort she went through to get Ami to swap parts with her whenever he came, too. Ugh.

Is it just me, or did Taiga feel guilty over giving Yūsaku a bite of her crêpe and not Ryūji? She suddenly really wanted him to have some..! XD

Agreed, tho I'd be willing to buy that she's trying but hasn't gotten it down yet. That last line as she led Ryūji back to the classroom was just so egotistical.

I really wish the screen on Taiga's phone had been subtitled - I couldn't tell whether there really weren't any messages on it, or if there actually was one that was giving her fits. Argh. :

Personally, being the softy I am, I'm hoping that Taiga's dad isn't a total douche, just a flake, especially since extreme reactions like Minori's always make me suspicious - that he means well, but is incapable of getting it together, and perhaps disappeared because he finally realized it and decided letting Taiga hate him was better than letting her down on a regular basis. Not entirely feeling the idea, tho, since (meta perspective) Yasuko basically fills the "little kid" role in letting the viewers know what's really going on, even though in-universe they really couldn't be trusted to make such a judgement.

I don't like villains. Stories without real villains often engage me more. Maybe they feel more realistic? I dunno.

That teacher is hilarious!

It seems like Ryuuju's the only one who thought Taiga's father was a good guy. Although it seems he mainly thinks that because he has his own daddy issues. Still, it's kinda Taiga's her fault imo for not going in the first place and allowing him to be deceived but whatever. Taiga listening to him as much as she did shows his influence on her, which I guess shows progress for their relationship.

So, Taiga got disappointed in the end though I really wonder why her father couldn't make it. It's kinda bad he didn't appeared (he could have work/or ultimatum from his wife) but it's even worse he didn't send her an e-mail at least. I sense big despair is coming to Taiga in next episode, and I guess it would be even worse as we saw prez and Kitamura together in PV.

Meanwhile, it's nice how Ami-chan is slowly changing her attitute towards others, she really is the best character out there (after Ryuuji ofc).

And Ryuuji isn't really at fault in his quarrel with Kushieda as his means are noble but I have to say it seems he is meddling too much by now for my taste. I know he is worried about Taiga but do he even realize he would need to take responsibility for thoughtless changes he made to her life?

I also liked how he didn't reconciliated with Minori right away as such things are very hard to deal with and it's not easy to set them right. Suffice to say, things will never be the same for them.

This is why Ami annoys me so much...
Why can't she be a good person like this always? She's changed, something... but she still has her facade. She has a good side but it's like she hate's to be good. GIT GUD AMI.

It's kinda good that Ryuuji and Minori are having a fight but Ryuuji should really apologize, even when he is not wrong. He will score good points.

It's a shame that Taiga's father failer to her once again.... damn it...

PD: "Kitamura's kiss" xD
PD2: I want to go to that tsundere cafe! :3

Alright, I gave this show another go with one more fucking episode, but I can't stand it anymore. Ohmygod. This show's one of the epitome why I detest romance genre with a burning passion that I might become a living volcano. Lmao.

This is official. Good bye, Toradora. I regret wasting my time watching those 12 episodes.

I know Taiga and Ryuuiji are gonna end up together, alright, and like as always supporting characters who's a friend of the MC like
Ugh.

yep he was dumb, but its cause he lost hes father & he can never see nor talk to him again & he doesn't want others to have that regret specially if their father live so they have chance to make up & that makes him blind, what can u do human emotions are sometimes stupid & blinding & make us to stupid things to

Bruh, you need to stop quoting me. It's not like I'm gonna give this show a chance and give it a go again. Lmao. I don't think I'm missing out on something since I already know where this anime's going.

Ashita no Joe reference spotted anyone knows what am talking about I guess no.

Anyway, the way I saw it, it seems that Taiga's old man married Kushieda's mother
or something related cause why would she get angry and how does she knows her
father's personality.

I'm on Minori's side completely here. Why should Ryuji be so happy about Taiga's reunion with her father if he barely knows their past history? It really wasn't his place to pressure Taiga into making that choice.

I really think Ryuuji should have caught om that something was up with Taiga's Dad from Minorin's reaction. But I suppose if he has his own Dad issues, it could have prevented him from thinking clearly
