I still believe that she is happy that Ryuuji is knowing her better. Just say its a female intuition ^^

You ahve to admit that anime did not portray it evil. They probably want it to look evil, but failed i think. Due to position of her eyes it doesnt look evil and one could think it is an approving soft smile instead of evil one.

Is that a translation from the light novels?

I'd say it's a smug or a haughtily amused smile myself, one holding a selfish intent.

It made me smile myself though.

The anime is totally different then the lightnovels. It an interpretation, just like Batman comics to the Movies. It's standing on its own. Thats why is the talk online . hehehehe (doing my Mirorin impression)

I give this episode a 10 since it was funny and also Taiga when she said Ryuji is mine. I guess they are going to go to Ami villa which should be hilarious.

The episode was worth it for Minori drawing eyes on her eyelids.

She is amazing haha

Am I the only one who was seriously irritated by the students? I just fear for this kind of crap from later chapters, if they start to try to push Taiga and Ryuuji together.

I can see why a lot of controversy is coming from this Episode. It's great because now we can finally clarify that Taiga does really care for Ryuuji. However, this means we may have to go through more of the same-old-same-old Tsundere insecurity to get out a confession why Minori, Ami, and Yusaku just sit there on the bench.

From what I understand, the novels do focus on the other characters, not just Taiga and Ryuuji.

I don't think she's quite as tsundere about it either, but I'm not totally sure.

Thank you, domo arigato ^^

Just to say, I dont think Taiga is a tsundere character, she is just violently crazy. I think about Naru Narusegawa of Love Hina, somewhat Asuna Kagurazaka of Negima, and Akane Tendo from Ranma.

...She's totally a tsundere. Just that she's tsun towards Ryuuji and dere towards Kitamura.

This will probably change eventually.

I love the turn of events in this episode. Could it be the beginning of romantic developments between Taiga & Ryuuji? Hehe. I find their concern for each other very endearing. Good materials to head into the summer vacation.

BTW, I don't think Taiga is tsundere, primarily cuz she's not outspoken enough to be considered tsundere. She's just a bully--a big bad bully (minus the "big" part). It's very slick and sneaky when she stripped Ami of her bikini to get a good headstart in the competition. Go TAIGA!

She is a tsundere. You don't have to be outspoken to be tsundere. Eriko from Kimikiss also is considered to be tsundere though she is far from being outspoken or loud. She just treats the main character both harsh (tsun) and sweet (dere). It's enough for you to act both dere and tsun to be a tsundere...

However it is also needed that both tsun and dere would be part of the same relationship (with the same person(s)). Since Taiga for majority of time was treating Ryuuji badly (tsun) without giving any dere moments to him she wasn't a real tsundere up to this point. Yet with episode 8 she can be considered a full-blown tsundere.

But because of later popularity of the term now tsundere definition became so wide so that now almost any stronger female character can fall into this definition.
