This anime has this odd habit (please let it slide how unorthodox it is to talk about an anime having "habits") of taking something really uncomfortable to watch and turning it into something that uh...damn it, nevermind, it's way too late for me to be at all coherent.

It was a good episode, and definitely better than the last. Also, uh, that fire dance thing that they do in animes really freaks me out now. School Days sort of had a Pavlovian effect on me that I can't shake off.

I think Minori. Somehow, I just can't see Taiga with Ryuuji. They just don't seem compatible, which is kinda wierd considering how compatible they are as friends. I dunno, maybe it's just me.

Loved this episode. The storytelling was great, and Taiga was awesome. Lol @ Minorin.

I really liked seeing Taiga all cute in her dress and Ami in that costume (It really fits her xDD). And, Minorin, you're awesome. I'm starting to love them more and more :3

I think Minorin and Taiga have a strong bond between them, so I certainly wouldn't mind if the anime went that way (yeah, I'm a yuri fan owo), but she probably only said the lesbian thing to see how Ryuji reacted, cuz I wouldn't be surprised if she knew his feelings towards her :3

So yeah, I love the 3 girls, so I can't decide which pairing to support xD

Second I was curious about what you though but hey I write a lot cause I can. Your vulgar language shows just how smart you are but then again your opinions are your matter however I would not care about such.

Minorin just makes this show for me. She's all kinds of freaking awesome. During her scenes, I either smile happily, grin like a lunatic, laugh out loud or jump up and down. Now recently, I even got teary eyes. Which is the highest emotional reaction anything gets out of me, so it says a darn lot.

MI-NO-RI! MI-NO-RI-N!

That said, Taiga gained points this episode. Good to see that she can handle stuff on her own as well. It's fine to have friends you can rely on, but there's a limit.
It also made me very happy to see that Ami has sort of calmed down. Seeing her putting on these masks all the time, switching personality randomly; it was painful. She's cool in her own way, even if she's feeling insecure, so my bet is that once she can permit herself to be herself - her biggest obstacle really - her coolness will increase tenfold.

Unfortunately Kitamura is still too random for me; so did he give up on the seitokaichou and went to Taiga? Consolation, genuine interest, what.. his motives are too blurry. I can't tell if he's a nice fellow or an asshole.


Also, yuri Minorin would make me nosebleed oceans and skyrocket me to effing heaven. I'd love her all the same if she was head over heels for Ryuuji, but hey, I won't refuse super-special-exquisite-gourmet-icing on the cake that is the magnificence, the shining splendor of Kushieda Minori.

/end fangirl rant

Oh and Mr. OH NO, NOT YURI PLZ, stuff your values up your cute little prejudiced bum, please, will you?
Alternatively, well yes, shut up or something.

You weren't curious of what I thought, you were being condescending and annoying. Again I appologize for actually having a real job and life, and not being a 30 year old(which apparently you are by your profile) who just sits around all day watching anime and writing reviews. Even if you really wanted my opinion, I probably wouldn't give it to you because you are such a dick on the forums(omg apparently I am unintelligent for calling you a dick!).

all i can say is wow. This episode seemed to different to the others to me but it was still amazing. This series has been brilliant every single episode, i've seen barely any series that have impressed me so much.

Well seems like everyone was wrong about Ryuji fighting someone, well not counting the fact he was shoving people down :P
Also seems like Kitamura is making his move haha. Darn i still wish Ryuji and Ami would end up together!

LOL I don't think Minori is a yuri. She's just weird and was jealous of how close Ryuuji and Taiga were because she's Taiga best friend. That's all.
I'd rather the author keeps it fan-service free.

First im obviously not a girl.
Secondly i loved it.
I think its good to see some character development and a somewhat more serious story to what was pure comedy until know.

I had the feeling episode 12 was awesome , but with this Episode they go one step further.

I like the character development of Ryuuji.
Ryuuji is nearly as cool as Kamina XD

Taiga looked so adorable ,even with her weird bag performance ...

For me it was kind of metaphore, that she was treated like 'thing' by her father who wanted to take her with him whenever felt like doing this.

I hope you understand, cause I still have problems with proper English ;D

It was different from other episodes but I still like it. From Ami's promiscuous cloth to Taiga's "magic trick" with bag. Midori crying? OMG!? I didnt even know that that happy, smiling person can cry. Finally Ryuuji realized how much Taiga's dad is jerk. And Ryuuji going berserker?!... woah... finally his face suited him.

Oh noes, Shoujo is so icky ! *rolleyes* Because the series was jam-packed with macho-vibes before right... I could totally tell by the male lead being the perfect housewife.

Now, about the Minori comment, I kinda of agree with the introspection done earlier. I think she's just being random. What she was referencing was the fact she probably felt a little betrayed and jealous by the fact Taiga decided to keep her out of the loop instead trusting Ryuuji. She just likes Taiga a lot.

That's why one of the words I put into the nickname is warrior. Cause she is so much and thanks to your screen shots do you need any other proof?

Thanks mate, you have proven yet another of my points.

Really nice episode. Taiga was really awesome again, interchanging cute moments with the warrior spirit the screenshots above me so obviously show.

Why is it that everytime I've watched an episode of Toradora! I'm left with a hunger for more?!

Interesting seeing such a tsundere character like Taiga soften up at the end.
Taiga's father is such a loser...The running scene was pretty nice though.
Good episode, the one week break is going to make me sad =[

Great, heartwarming episode.

I'm really don't know where the plot is going to go from here. It'll be interesting.

This anime started off pretty average and typical, but has nicely separated itself from the rest of its kind. Good stuff.

One of the best episodes.
Taiga's one of the most delightful tsundere I have ever seen. I love the whole main cast of characters and her especially.

Hmm, interesting how she got straight inside the bag. makes more easy to kidnap now. C:

Good episode plot-wise, though the comedy is less compared to previous episodes.

I was worried how the problem of taiga's dad could be solved, but apparently everything's back to normal.

Loved it, that was an amazing episode. Minorin is the wisest character I've ever seen, also the craziest and simply the best.

I love you Ami. She's an amazing actor and a brillient character, just as wise as Minorin in her own way although today, she was just pure Ami. I love you Ami <3

Taiga you adorable tsundere, dress up more often! It was nice to see Taiga come to understand her friends a little more, to see her mature, same with Ryuji.

Loved it!

Usually I can't really tolerate tsundere characters. At the least I ignore them (Shana), and at the most they annoy the living snot out of me (Louise).

I can't help but find Taiga incredibly adorable.

I don't know why I find her different from the others, but I do. This episode was a really great one too. Even though I'm a girl, I found Taiga to be ABSOLUTELY adorable in that dress that Yuuji made for her. My heart melted and I literally said "awwwwww~" out loud.

I hope we get to see more of the cute side of character soon!

So cute, too cute. Very adorable episode, Taiga looked stunning. I love Minorin so much too, the bond she has with Taiga reminds me of myself and my best friend. My best friend can be a total adorable vicious bitch like Taiga, & I could never see myself without her though. <3

Effin Dad, what a asshole. I would hope you to crash on your way back home my too treasured Taiga would be unhappy, so curse you.
