good episode.
I shock to see Ryuji small fight with Minori because of Taiga, Ryuji was wrong afterall (i mean his impression of Taiga father). Seeing Minori so mad after hearing Taiga father, that really a friend.

then I lol at their sensei, , abit too over emotion to the red line lol. And class 2-c should thank to their sensei, because of that, the show become great success, other classes also come out with cosplay cafe.

I wonder what the father meant by trying to move Taiga out so they can live together then suddenly abandoning her again. A change of heart, perhaps?

As far as the anime goes, its still anybody's game. I hope they will wrap up the season with a neat episode 13.

Wow...I didn't expect Minorin to act like that towards Taiga's father. There must be a deeper meaning to this which might explain why Minori looks out for Taiga so much. If she knows something Ryuji doesn't know then this will become more messy if things are still left as they are. The way Taiga reacted also seems to be showing that she knows Minori and Ryuji are looking out for her and so instead of getting angry she tried to put out the fire between them. A nice episode overall and some interesting developments. Ami is winning some serious points over time.

Ep 12 subbed is already in Youtube.

God, the teacher's reaction when they were about to cut her red thread was priceless. Five thumbs up.

I loved this episode, though it looked like a prequel to the next one. Ryuuji is totally convinced that Taiga's dad is a good man. He even fought Minorin.

Loved the presentation of 2-C class. Anyways, I'm expecting the next episode to be da bomb.

Been that way since the start... some of the "news sources" were just working with bad data or people got confused between "available episode titles" and the actual length of the series.

I think both animation-wise and character-wise this episode was done very well.

Animation-wise, there is fluidity throughout the episode. Also adds my good impression on Korean-based studios (Union Cho, a Korean-based studio outsourced by Production I.G. and did in-betweening for some of their shows provided help for this episode). Digimation was simple and done appropriately.

Character-wise, it's really good that they showed Minorin's "dark side" pretty well. And scenes that show Minorin and Ryuuji wanting to apologize to each other really added to the feeling. Although I think that Taiga was not the main character for that episode until the end, the writers are really telling us the idea that Taiga is moving out, presented perfectly. I felt sorry she wasn't able to show herself acting to her dad. Also, maybe it's just me, but this episode sky-rocketed my admiration for Ami, because she represents the person that doesn't falter, and do not take things too seriously. I think her sly "genki-ness" is very natural, unlike that of Minorin, well at least for that episode. I can't wait what's gonna happen next episode.

And perhaps my favorite line for this episode, is of course from Ami. So poetic

"-before you, but not far away."

I'm dense as lead when it comes to poetic flowery words. What does this part mean?

Somehow she's ahead of him on the same "path" what? How so? And why?

I think it means that she won't be clutching on to him forever, but will still be a safe distance away to "help" him if needed.

It's a pretty big set-up

I think a flood is going to be released by the next ep.

Can't wait to see what Minorin is thinking, or at least the story about Taiga's father.

Seconded. Taiga's reaction to her father in episode 11, and Minori and Ryuuji's mother's reaction to Taiga's father make me think there has to be something really bad that he did.

ROFLMAO. It's 1:13 AM and I'm trying not to laugh. This episode is so freaking hilarious. Bi bi bi bi bi bi.

Ryuuji sure is self centered really. He doesn't understand Taigas father at all and just because he wants his dad back hes pushing it on Taiga. Feel sorry for Taiga and Minorin. Douchebag of the episode goes to Ryuuji.
