Taiga confessing to Yūsaku only to be told they he wants to just be friends. Brutal. At least Ryūji was there for her which I suspect will be the case more and more as the series goes on. I never read the manga hence I don't know how it's supposed to progress. I want to keep it a mystery I suppose.

Good episode. Opening is sweet. But no details about their previous convesation - yes, this wasn't so good. They can least tell a bit about that case some time ago.

I'll give 8 out of 10 : Very Good.

Good pacing, superb edits and nice dialogues.

Production was constant, but I felt that it was the timeline was too packed, and a lot of both Taiga's and Ryujii's character development were lost.

A lot was "lost", but the animation and voice acting are still so enjoyable that I'll give it an 8

I thought the episode, in and of itself, was actually better than the first one. Can't comment on the faithfulness to the source material, but I'm loving this series so far. Taiga's rejection was just sad and awesome at the same time. Let's see how this goes.

was a interesting episode and enjoyed the love triangle

Another solid episode. The laughs kept coming with the gym and lamppost scene, but the tiger and dragon monologue was kinda lame.

Kitamura , LOL. That was a cold way to "let's just be friends" someone. He must be a pimp to be so unreactive , ha.

Vexx 2008-10-20 11:31

I'd throw a "9" except that Taiga's vulnerability during scenes like the cookie giving or the confession scene were really well communicated (as was Ryuuji's supportiveness). So from an anime-only standpoint, I thought it was worth a "10".

Kitamura seemed to understand quite clearly Taiga's subconscious mixed feelings during the confession by the way he noted how she talked about Ryuuji. It was a shame the dialog only inferred what had happened between them a year earlier.

The nice thing here is that we've hurdled past the "usual tsundere cliche plotline" and move directly to the "partners in crime" where events less often seen in romance comedy happen.

at the end of the episode Taiga smile as she says "he called me Taiga" she called Ryuji by his first name in the first episode.

I thought it was rude in Japanese culture to call someone by their first name unless they were really close.

Why does she seem so happy because of this?

Because she's lonely, I suppose... and it's rare for people to want to be familiar with her.

Besides, the way Ryuuji did it seemed more like establishing a pact or a bond of trust or something.

Also she called him Ryuuji in the first episode, which he commented on. :P

hah, i was wondering why episode 2 was up on the first page lol, didn't know anyone was THIS far behind in the series, although i can't blame you, i like to do the same, but i couldn't control myself with toradora. I just finished 51 episodes of FMA in 2 days though, and the movie, and teh ovas hahahah

Poor Taiga got, rejected, quite coldly. She makes a better fit with Ryuuji anyway, I liked the part where they were beating up on the lamp post, let out all of that pent up stuff.

At first, Taiga was getting on my nerves, but the catharsis was really nice. Kick that pole!
