This is one truly amazing episode that left me speechless.

This episode should be nominated for One of the Best of 2008.

bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

I'll go ahead and add what I thought. Though I'm sure most of it's been said.

It was a really great episode...though I realized that I now have to wait for the next one and that killed my excitement. Taiga was so incredibly adorable in that angel-ish outfit, and Minorin...she was interesting that episode. From what I read, I have to agree that she may be jealous of Ryuuji.

I'm more hoping that it turns out that Ryuuji gets Taiga. Is it just me or does it seem his romantic feelings for Minorin have been a lot less significant? And not to mention he's trying so hard for Taiga. (Gotta love Ryuuji, he'd be the perfect housewife :D )

Another great episode.
The ‘Mr. Lucky Contest’ or whatever it was called was hilarious. Ryuuji was not going to loose lol
This show just continues to surprise me. It has everything.
I would very much like to kick Taiga's dad in the nuts XD

But on a serious note. Would anyone really be upset if Minorin was a lesbian? I mean come on. Think of the possibilities. =D

I wouldn't be. But that's because I'm hoping for Ryuuji x Ami! Come on, moon+moon > sun+moon! :D


And yes, brilliant episode!

Awesome episode! I cried a lot when Minorin was crying and Takasu was supporting Taiga.
Taiga was so cute with that outfit

This could have been an 'ending' episode and i wouldnt have complained :D

The best moment ever was the running! OMG, I've never seen Ryuuji looking so much like his father...
XD
I really don't know if he should end up with Taiga, or Minorin. I mean, I'd rather it was Taiga, but that pink haired girl actually impresses me every episode!
>.<
Well, I'll have to wait to find out...

The episode left me at awe. Ryuuji struggling to return into Taiga's side was very emotiona and I liked Ryuuji going berserk mode >:D

Its funny how Taiga won the contest I mean, She was the only one wearing an angel costume and the others are all wearing maid outfits. Of course she'd win the contest XD

I loled so hard when Taiga went into the bag. Also I think that Kitamura likes the student council president. I kind of wish this was the last episode though. It felt like it would be a good place to end off.

Kitamura x Student Council = Possible, but improbable.
Kitamura x Taiga = Possible, but improbable.
Kitamura x Minorin = Possible, but improbable.
Kitamura x Ryuuji = Impossible. (Wot? I have to take all possibilities, and impossibilities to account. lol)

Ryuuji x Taiga = Possible, probable.
Ryuuji x Minorin = Possible, but very improbable.
Ryuuji x Ami = Possible, but not much probable.

Taiga x Ami = Who the 8 came up with this thing?! This will never happen.
Taiga x Minorin = Some people phail to get a joke.

No ending = Possible, probable
I'm not taking any other possiblilities since there is actually none other than these.

Good episode. This series never phails to surprise me.
I only wish that the manga had the same publishing pace as the anime.

I'm not a mod here, but i would like that the fight could be stoped right here, and right now.
Defiance you picked up this fight without slayer having done anything to you. (Besides replying your messages.)
You may have phailed to compreend what he wrote, but thats deffinitly not a reason to keep on arguing like this.
It doesn't matter how old slayer is, neither the fact that he likes to write long reviews.
He at no moment bothered other users, not to mention that you in no point were obliged to actually care about what he wrote.

Taiga rejected him first, so it's not like the whole mess makes sense either. She's basically just trying to win him back. This episode shows who seems to be Taiga's real contender for Kitamura's heart (the Student Council President). I couldn't tell if the Prez seemed to have a genuine love interest on him as well, since she seems hard to read. I guess Kitamura likes the bossy girls.

Another supporter. I love Kitamura and the President. I saw it since ep 3 was it? When she was introduced. It was classic. But she's older than him, maybe it would never work.

I do think Kitamura might be better with Ami. I like Kitamura and the Prez, but do get the feeling that he wants to take her place when she leaves and she was testing him if he was fit to take her place when she left. In the end it basically showed that she found him fit to take her place. So although I like them, I know it's not going down that road.

Hey, avoid double posting. Use the edit button instead.

Kitamura x Ami is highly improbable.

Its same as Ryuuji x Minorin.
Just like when Ami said: "You are the moon. Minorin is the sun..."
The same applies to Kitamura x Ami or Taiga.

And acctually, the only one who would match Ami until now is Ryuuji. (Besides, she doesn't like Kitamura in that way. She likes Ryuuji.)
Just like Ryuuji matches with Taiga.

I wouldn't be surprise if we end up with Kitamura and Minorin end up togheter or simply alone.
(I actualy dislike both. I find them annoying.)
(Like i always say after bashing some random character: "This is only my opinion. Its not like you have to worry about it.")

I have to agree Kitamura and the Student Council Prez probably won't get anywhere, since she will leave, hence there's not much chance for them. If they wanted to (and Kitamura had the guts), they could, but it's pretty obvious they will part ways and hope to meet again someday. And I bet they will sneak it in as an episode soon.

And I think Ami was just tryig to lull Ryuuji away from Minori with a half-truth. She tried to lure him into thinking they are a better match, but the fact remains that if he goes by her way of thinking, then Taiga is the perfect match for him as Ryuuji is completely open with her, and likewise she has learned to open up to him (which made Minori feel a tad slighted).

Ami does a half assed job when it comes to start a relationship with Ryuuji.
I think she doesn't know that she had a crush on Ryuuji or she doesn't want to admit it.

Ami's feelings were beside the point. Whether she really liked him or was just after him on a whim, it still means she tried to play mind games on him. Besides, considering how helpfull she has been to Taiga and Ryuuji in the last pair of episodes, I'm thinking she just wants close friends, but can't bring herself to drop her shield and openly admit it. Ryuuji noticed as much though.

I simply loved this episode, especially the running part. Minorin was a true hero when she helped Ryuuji to win and help Taiga. I guess she trusts Ryuuji enough to be able to give Taiga to him. Although the "Perhaps I am lesbian"-comment made me think she secretly want Taiga for herself. Or I might be thinking into it too much. ^^"

I don't think she really is. I guess she knows that Ryuuji is in love with her and she is just testing him like Kitamura and Taiga. Probably it will be like that: Taiga X Ryuuji, Kitamura X Minorin (?!).
But I hope it won't. It will be too predictable and boring.

I totally agree but she might develop a serious crush on him with time and because she'll get to know him better.
Is it me or episode 14 is taking long to be aired?

What is your explanation for KitamuraXAmi not getting together? You have no reasoning AT ALL. I don't see how KitamuraXMinorin have more of a chance than KitamuraXAmi, when KitamuraXAmi have an established long term relationship as close friends.

There are 25 eps to see who matches who fully. So far I won't deny that RyuujiXTaiga are set. But to say that RyuujiXAmi match because Ami likes Ryuuji. Then I could say that Minorin matches Ryuuji because Ryuuji likes Minorin, it's absurd.

I find both Kitamura and Minorin annoying as well and I have never been quiet about it. However, I am considering the way everything is going and I do see there is chance for Ami and Kitamura (even though he's cardboard right now) considering their past and who introduced her onto the show and the others. They can definitely develop Kitamura/Ami without any difficulty.

Pretty good conclusion. Some scenes were just plain painful such as when Taiga's father texting it not to Taiga but Ryuuji(that's Phil Collins level) and Ami calling out Taiga's father. Ryuuji going berserk was pretty awesome. Minorin asking if she was a lesbian was possibly the best comment I've heard this year. They really are downplaying the Taiga x Ryuuki aspect to a point where I'm almost doubting they will get together(I hope they don't rush the relationship near the end). I wonder if they are going to do another serious arc or another comedy one, they kinda handle both well so looking forward either way.

A beutiful episode!
Way back, around the first episodes, I didn't think that this anime would really have it in it to make me feel the way I feel after watching the latest episodes! The novel's author and J.C. Staff surely did a great job in the anime. Wait... It's like I'm saying this after the anime's over! Hah! But there's still 12 more to go before that! xD

Really? I kept seeing Taiga rubbing her face on Minori's breasts and kept thinking that Miniorin was getting aroused.


STOP! You guys are not thinking Kushieda is really a lesbian? Come on! She is way worth it more than that. I hope Ryuuji changes something in her and some 101 sexual instructions somehow.

There might be many people that will not like Taiga x Kushieda.


Actually, I'm one of those people who wouldn't mind if the anime is heading that direction lol


Then it'll be hella convenient for Ryuuji and Ami, XD

That would be hilarious wouldn't it? This anime's a pretty weird harem now that I think about it, and it feels quite refreshing! It's not quite like the harems I'm "used" to. ^^

They did say they loved each other right before Minorin wondered if she was a lesbian ;) Imagine them going in for a kiss there; so good.


Awwwwww. I have to admit, that would be very cute! :]

Ok, seriously: I was shocked when Minorin was questioning her sexuality. I really hoped Ryuuji would give her a long kiss in order to make her realize that she is straight..... but then again, maybe she is not. ;)

Somehow this Student Council President (or "Amis Twin-sister" as I call her) gives me the "lesbian" vibe. So, maybe Minorin ends up with her! :P

All in all: Awesome episode again 5/5!
