I'll be blunt and say I did not like the race, I found it ridiculous.

The scene near the end where Taiga hugs Minori kinda look like parents (Ryuuj and Minorin) and their daughter (Taiga) to me :-)


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


Haha, I was thinking that too. Good episode! Ryuuji's determination to win the race was very impressive.

epic episode, specially when Taiga tore her dress.

Somehow this Student Council President (or "Amis Twin-sister" as I call her)

So I'm not the only one who thinks the Student Council President and Ami look too much alike? XD

About Minorin possibly being a lesbian; I could imagine Ryuuji sitting there thinking, "Oh holy hell, I hope not."

I actually don't think that Minorin was just being random when she asked that, since she was speaking normally instead of using her usual wacky diction. That being said, I don't think that she and Taiga love each other in a romantic sense, which is actually kind of strange since I'm usually quick to claim two female characters as a yuri couple.

About Minorin being with Kitamura:
They seem like go together well because of they're wacky personalities, but when I see them together the feel like a couple of street performers or entertainers rather than a romantic couple.

About Minorin being with Ryuuji:
I sort of thought that this pairing wouldn't work before the last couple of episodes. Ami was right about Minorin being the Sun to Ryuuji's Moon, but I think that Ryuuji is really starting to level with her. I'm not too sure about Minorin's feelings toward Ryuuji, though. I don't she had an interest in anyone for a while.

Great episode, i really liked when Ryuji ran like a mad beast ^^
I also laughed a lot when Minorin said she's maybe lesbian. Awesome ^^

But...

I wanted to see Taiga dance with Ryuuji but that didn't happen :(


That's a bit sad, he deserved a dance with her...

How cute..





Did Ami's tone of voice changed midway into the episode to a more mature one?

Edit: Actually, I just realized that the student council president and Ami are 2 different individuals. Never mind.. *facepalm*

Tenori Taiga is awesome. So is Ami. I loved Ryuuji's look on his face when he was racing. I'll agree with the yuri theory; KushiedaxTaiga and RyuujixAmi would be nice to see. And KitamuraxStudent Council President.

...and they lived happily ever after. Yeah, that sounds right.

Awesome Episode. Finally Ryuuji's scary face was useful. Like he said, this ep has mixed all kinds of emotions. Good to see Ryuuji and Minori getting well again :>

People were way off in the last thread. They thought there was going to be a fight.

I was one of them.

lol i too thought there was going to be a fight for taiga's sake, and minori somehow involved.
close but no punches thrown and taiga's father didn't get the beating he deserved.
*sigh*

i think this is the first episode i see taiga smile like that.

Taiga looked really good in the dress Ryuuji made and the outfit Ami wore was great.
Ok.. Taiga's dad is real bitch, doing this twice, but I'm more surprised that Kushieda didn't say a word to this to Ryuuji.
Funny how Kushieda jumped in the competition at the last second, threw a softball and knocked both guys down, and chucked herself at 4 other guys down.

Wait a minute, I somehow dislike this episode. Even though they cleared up the misunderstandings between Minori, Ryuuji and Taiga, WHY IS TAIGA DANCING WITH KITAMURA INSTEAD? This does not make sense to me, and neither it made sense with what Ryuuji said earlier : He wanna get back to taiga.

Lol, yea, where's the 'supposed' dance with Taiga that was promised to the winner of the race? I'd just love to see a scene like that.

I need some help IDing the background music that starts at ~10:29 in this episode. I don't think it's in the OST. If anyone knows the name of the song or somewhere it's located, could they toss that info my way?

Wow oh, quite the drama. That was certainly the putrid drama. Sickeningly stiff and painful.
Well I'm glad it all purified with that night's bonfire.

Taiga with tied hair was KAWAIIII desu~
I started crying a little when I saw Minori crying...

As for how Taiga won, well maids are Taiga's food so... I mean whole competition were maids, of course my little angel would win. ^^
Well the show would be shorter if they let Ryuuji get to Taiga on stage...
but still the race was fine, we got to see Ryuuji in berserk mode. xD
The end was ok... the drama ended, the arguments were cleared and connection between love birds is better now. ^^

I think all the plot about her father is overrated, it's not a big deal what he did. Too much drama for nothing.

Minorin is the only character i really like from this show, i hope she gets more screentime.

I combined some screenshots for a full bodyshot of Ami:



I... I love you.....

Anyway yeahhh this was seriously a great episode. Great development on everyone's part.

Screw Taiga's father, she's got so many great friends supporting her and Kushieda and Ryuuji are like her family. I guess that's why she wasn't that depressed afterwards.

But if I were Taiga, I don't know how I would trust him again. Like Kushieda said, this had happened in the exact same way just ONE year ago!! But I guess Taiga had a little bit of hope in her heart that this time he was different. Guess not.

I'm totally for KushiedaxRyuuji now. Forget the Taiga crap. Taiga looks great with Kitamura. But Kushieda and Ryuuji look so good together, their opposing personalities make them perfect for each other :D

I'm glad that Kushieda and Ryuuji made up without having to have an awkward moment. I was kind of hoping that Ryuuji would try to find the opportunity to confess to Kushieda. Cuz apparently doing it in front of the Cultural Festival Bonfire is like the best chance to do it. Owell :3

WHAT THE FREAK? KUSHIEDA B-B-B-B-B-BEAST MODE?!?!

Oooh they blew a pretty large budget on this episode. Pretty art and great animation.

Really good conclusion to this arc.

Considering they made the halfway point this awesome, I'm expecting great things from the ending.

Good episode, but ruined by the ending.

Ryuuji puts all hes got into the race and Taiga just ends up dancing with Kitamura. Did not like that at all.

lame

5/5 because the race was epic though

This was such an amazing episode... I'm not sure what else to say. I loved all of the character and relationship development... I have to say, while Ryuuji x Taiga is great, so are the other pairings. :)

This episode was amazing. I'm glad Ryuuji and Minorin made up. I was expecting a simple apology but that scene was ten times better. I'm rooting for a RyuujixTaiga shipping in the end but there's something in my heart that wants a RyuujixAmi pairing. Or rather Ryuuji pairing with Ami, I'd just rather it be me.
