He ... did it :S
Hope he will never ever come back, and if he does I hope Ryuuji hits him big time

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

The amount of melodrama in this episode is too damn high!

Great episode, but the reactions could've been toned down a little. I loved how Kitamura asked Taiga to dance at the end though. so cute x3

I dunno. Climax of this three-episode arc simply didn't work. It felt like the melodrama was bit overdone in this episode. Everything was so obvious this time, we already knew what would happen. Creators were crying for feels yet it all felt written by the book.
Even Beauty Pageant was weird and race for Taiga was cringeworthy. I think this series was rooted in decent and slow character building. But now... I really don't know.

If anything I like how Ami is supporting them now.

Quite a nice episode, especially when Ryuuji went full beast mode after realizing his mistake.

Awww this was a great episode. I felt super bad for Taiga but in the end it seems she was expecting it anyway.

Nice to see the Porco Rosso reference from Ami: "A pig who can't fly is merely a pig"

I don't blame Ryuji for being a little defensive with Taiga's dad. He just wanted Taiga to get a chance to make up with her dad, since he never got the chance. That and he didn't know what was coming, unlike Minori who didn't even tell him why she was pissed when she heard Taiga's dad was here.

Though on that note: Yeah, Taiga's dad is a prick. Doesn't show, and tries to apologize by text... That's not cool. The festival went really well for the school.

Side note: If only my school let girls wear slave driver clothes like Ami's...

This show blows my mind with how well they execute everything. More and more, Taiga seems to become more attached to Ryuuji and less of a klutz around Kitamura. I feel the feelings that she has toward Kitamura will die, based off of personal experience, yeah, those feelings will subside if they become too long unrequited. She is going to most likely have some sort of love for Kitamaru (as in, she'll like him, but it just wont be the fiery love), but will be madly in love with Ryuuji.

Ryuuji loves Taiga, just doesn't realize his feelings though. He plays it off well, but he will have to confront her at some point. His feelings are also dying as well, just I feel they wont be in sync with Taiga, because I know that heartbreak and troubles will occur between the two (just a prediction, but I'm pretty sure about this)

I don't know why they don't make Taiga and Minori the main couple, they're obviously gay for each other.

Best episode so far.

Very exaggerated, melodramatic, cliché in its core but it delivered multitude of messages; all of them encouraging, sweet, strong and motivating.

Again, best episode. I very much liked it.

I wanted to headbutt a wall throughout the episode. Seriously, how the fuck is Taiga's father regarded that badly? With all the foreshadowing and stuff I was expecting some seriously gruesome abuse, but this is.. nothing. You're so brave, Taiga. /s

This one was fairly predictable, but enabled character development for pretty much the entire main cast, so it was handled very well

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

This. I was expecting some big reveal like how the father used to sexually harrass Minorin and/or Taiga's classmates.

Eh, I was expecting something much worse like violence or sexual abuse.

Also, the whole Minorin-Ryuuji conflict could have been solved if she would have told him the truth from the start.

The only thing I liked from this episode was Ryuuji running like a mad man lol.

Have you forgot this is the show where Anime characters must pause what they are saying to extend the story?

That's a good rule to know. /s

Kind of an anticlimatic ending to the drama between Ryuuji and Minori somehow. That running was pretty retarded.

I honestly cringed at her performance on stage, but this episode was really touching. And I can't say that often about this series.

Oh God, Minorin, please don't like girls I want you to end up with Ryuji!

Ami was really hot again this time around.

I hate it when anime/manga that I enjoyed ends, especially when there could be much longer plot and when I love main heroine :P

I wish I had magic glasses that let me see real world in anime colors ;)

always amazing how toradora manages to throw all possible subtlety out the window. when ryuuji receives his message in his phone it was a great opportunity to show the audience what he was feeling through his facial expressions, body language, and whatnot, but nah, just make him think all he's concluding mentally. it's all overly blatant and spelled out, and honestly, kinda offensive that they don't trust the audience on this level. Adapting a novel into an audiovisual medium implies making use of visual storytelling a bit, jesus.

This episode was one of my favorites in this series because up to this point I thought that Taiga's father was a genuine person, and the problems were caused by misunderstandings, and I thought that Minori didn't understand that, just like Taiga initially. I wish Minori would have made that clear with Takasu when this was brought up in the previous episode because that would have made more sense, I guess. But I don't mind it because it provided a cute Minori x Takasu moment and develop their bond. (What do you call their ship? Minosu? Takarin?)

When Minori started clapping with Takasu in the silent auditorium, it gave me goosebumps.

I also really liked the fact that Kitamura asked Taiga to dance with him. That was very cute!

Oh and I almost forgot! Does Minori like girls more? hahaha, I was laughing out loud when she said that. I hope she doesn't actually like girls more because I wanna see Minori x Takasu develop a lot!

All in all, it was a really good episode and it was rounded out very nicely by the end.

After applying makeup, Taiga had a new facial appearance throughout the episode. It does make her look friendly but I got the cringy feeling.
Those interactions between Taiga-Kitamura and Ryuji-Minori at the end are golds but it didn't finish the way I expected it to be.

Wow that was a lot of cliches in one episode. It is understandable that Taiga would be upset with her dad, but its very weird for her friends to be this devastated over it. A normal response would be to just give her a hug and some emotional support, not a god damn slow clap and this "realisation" that they need to do everything they can for her. Having every thought said out loud made things a lot harder to handle as well. The only interesting thing that happened was Minorin saying she might be lesbian, but I'm sure that will be forgotten.
