It's more of a courtesy shown toward the viewers who are waiting for a sub. Sensible posters at their best.

I guess I'm more practical in the sense that I won't go into an episode discussion thread until I've watched the episode, because I know discussion of it will be going on. Why else would you be in the thread? ;D

Absolutely. I hear you! I still appreciate any posters who is willing to show such courtesy.

Gave it an 8. This episode has greatly redeemed the series in my eyes after a couple of average episodes. Ami is a vastly interesting character, and her interactions with Taiga also rejuvenate her character as well. Plenty of humour, but the dog comments are seriously stale now.

Gave it a 10. Ami is just the type of evil character that the show needs. And I like the fried pork XD

Are the dog comments supposed to be funny anymore? I think it's just to show that Taiga still treats Ryuuji like she always does. If she didn't call him a dog, then we know that something is going on.

btw episode 5 has already been subbed.

This episode really put on the amusement factor. Considering scans aren't out up to this point, it's nice having a new experience.

Ami is a truly interesting character, so evil, and yet sooo awesome DAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Kitamura Eri has played Ami exactly how she has been described, with both her cute klutzy side, and her obnoxious side well played out. She's supposed to be Taiga's "enemy", yet for some reason, I don't dislike her at all. Must be because she's the element that gets the gears moving. It's a joy to see her switch from her cute side to her evil side, I tell you.

Great ep ! I guess Kitamura's ideals are all holy . Does he have a fetish for people unaccepted by others?

Ami was a pretty good character. I'm glad they didn't make us suffer with 10 eps of Ryuuji not knowing her true personality. It was kinda funny when they were getting the drinks from the vending machine. Even though he knew her true personality, he was still taken aback at how emotional she was getting. Should be interesting to see her and Taiga duke it out(with at some point, a Ryuuji moment smacking her down as well).

Still, the funniest moment was Minorin's shocked face. That just had me ballin' , she really knows how to make me laugh.

Excellent episode. Ami's a fun character and I'm glad she's finally gotten her introduction. Minori's reaction to Ryuuji's question was hysterical (it caught me totally off guard, I forgot that scene was coming).

Even knowing that was coming it was something else to see it in action . Love the class being completely shocked with Minorin having already returned to normal.

Ami is a pretty interesting character so far. Definitely pulls off the dual personality pretty well. Though you knew Taiga was going to snap and hit her at some point. Will see how things go with her. Good at least that Ryuugi knows what kind of personality she really has. Though even still you can get caught up in the outer Ami.

Not a bad episode for Ryuugi really. Only got icecream to the eyes, magazine being pushed forcefully into his face and getting hit by a pillow .

Taiga's use of "inu" (dog) sounds more like old habit now, there's no energy in it. If she dropped it completely, it would be some sort of admission.

Not "had to". "Chose to". (The whole C&D thing is a troll, as you'll see if you go to Koda's blog. [the "Serious Business" one].) Apparently nobody except for the translator thinks it's a good show or likes it (I don't really get why, but whatever), so GG's dropped it and the TLer, ilifin, has apparently taken his work on it to a different group (not CoalGuys, apparently, but some other currently-unknown group).

I normally been dl'ing Aero's fansub. My pc is old, and I'm guessing the way gg encodes it is a bit too much for my pc to handle, since the audio seems to lag at times. I know CoalGuy released Toradora 5 before anyone else, but I still waited for Aero's. Their translation feels better anyway. Never understood why multiple fansub groups waste their time doing a show thats being done by someone else.

Also want to add that Kitamura is doing a poor job at showing everyone Ami's true nature >.>. Or was he, in fact, showing Ryuuji so that Ryuuji will accept Ami for who she is, with the hope that Ryuuji will gravitate toward Ami so he[Kitamura] can steal Ryuuji's role as a good friend of Taiga?

And Taiga waiting for Ryuuji after school?!? Is it to show a smidge of [friendly] affection? Or was it simply a plot device to have Ami and Taiga meet?

No, no, he's just making Ryuuji and Taiga do the dirty work of getting her to reveal her inner self to people.

Its good to have several groups doing a show, particularly if the translators are using different principles in translating.

Aye, after reading the comments on the gg site, I'm not surprised they dropped it. Better to take the noble exit rather than being asshats with the subtitles.

I'm currently using Aero for now but plan on reviewing the other groups (Paradym?) as well. So far, Aero has been fairly literal without sounding too awkward in the phrasing. Seems like they've missed a pun/reference or two though.
