It airs wednesday at 17:20 (european time) - thursday 1:20 in Japan - as always.
I just opened the thread a bit earlier than usual. If this works, I'll open them at the same time on the next weeks, otherwise, I'll delay.

Oh cool, thank you.

BTW, the part of Volume 3 that corresponds to tomorrow's episode has been completed and is on B-T for those curious.

i lost track of time, what the heck!


ep.8
- only seen half of the episode, darn.. why was Taiga mad at Ryuuji?
- lol at Taiga taking Ami's top off, that was WIN
- liking this anime even more, it's probably because Taiga is not who she used to when it comes to Ryuuji cpmpared to before. She cared for Ryuuji when he drowned and actually cried. Really, good episode with Taiga and Ryuuji development.


Spoiler for screens:

That sure moved faster than I thought, though I more or less expected the duel to be wrapped up by the end of the episode.

I always wondered what Minori sleeping with a pair of fake eyes drawn on her eyelids would look like, and boy did I crack up when I saw her with those.

They should have allowed Taiga to use her wooden blade to strip Ami-tan of her bikini, instead of just her bare hands. She'll look more menacing that way, as befitting of her name.

And Taiga finally acknowledges for feelings, sort of. It wasn't too bad an adaptation, considering how JC Staff chooses to significantly downplay the angst and jealousy between Taiga and Ryuji caused by the cliffhanger on episode 6 with Ami flirting with Ryuji.

A new insertion includes Minori showing how envious she is of Taiga, having Ryuji take care of her. That scene was supposed to be in volume 4 but got moved forward.

You really do have to respect the type of friendship the two have, especially after this episode. I'd go as far as to say the two do love each other, just not in the relationship way.

I certainly hope they don't skip the sumo match with the giant dog. Ever since I read that part I've wanted to see it animated.

Good episode =)

Although they skipped quite a lot, it was still a good watch. The most important scenes were animated and it's good to see some taiga x ryuuji development. They've downplayed the angst factor though.

gave it a 8/10

Consistent writing wins. The series maintain nice flow so far.

And the omission of the wooden sword makes sense, no one carries it to the pool. Just my 2 cents.

Wow, pretty deep episode. I don't know what to think of right now, but at the moment, I think Ryuuji's mum summed it up the best when she was clinging onto Ryuuji's leg.

I think I need to watch this episode a few times to consolidate my thoughts.

I'm a sucker for Random Curiosity screen caps.... this time they've got me seriously anticipating this episode (as well as looking forward to reading the rest of the novels later).
