Exactly my point. I can perfectly see Haruta or Noto going "Are you a girl?" oh him.

i'm just thinking... if Kyon evolved in Kyonko, we could see Ryuuji evolving in something like her???

some fan-based creation like Kyonko?... that would be so much epic WIN

LOL, I never expected Minori to utter something in Cantonese. She said "mou mon tai" 無問題, or "no problem". I see that a lot in visual novels lately as well. I never knew phrases from Hong Kong movies would catch on this well in Japan.

Taiga has moved on from liking Kitamura, and probably Ryuji, though it's debatable that she might probably be in denial. In contast, Kitamura is still smarting from his "being dumped" by Sumire upon seeing her photo.

But such is the influence Ryuji has on Taiga's life that she's begun to do her own cleaning, we'll see if she's really moved on from this. Though even if she is trying to move on, there is one person that could derail that - Ryuji himself.

Ryuji is still subconciously concerned for Taiga, though Taiga's constant urging and his own feelings for Minori has clouded him from thinking properly about his feelings for Taiga.

Minori's cute meter has gone considerably up this week, not a bad thing.

Ami most definitely has more or less given up, though it doesn't stop her from berating Ryuji for being so dense with every chance she has.

Well, if you consider Haruta's IQ, he probably has no concept of what suicide means. Lol'ed at Taiga mispronouncing that word into something dirty.

A good transitional episode for what is to come.

Minori uttered something in Cantonese? O_o, I wonder if the translators will pick that up...I know I have seen that phrase a lot and heard it from Chinese teacher once. Hm that's interesting I guess things do spread countrywide regardless of the dialect.

Her attempts to get him to notice her were pretty vague (so vague I'm still not sure if she really likes him or just wants attention), so its no wonder her chances ended before it even started. Though I guess shes just not the type to pour her heart out to a guy.

I surmise that Ami has *never* had to chase a guy before.... totally out of her element. (though there's some speculation that as the "childhood friend" of Kitamura she may have been ignored as anything but a friend by him as well).

I'm sensing a pattern here. Then again, Kitamura is Kitamura. >_> <_<

Heh, it was said early on that some other set of cameras is filming Kitamura's "harem anime" series where everyone wants to smack the tar out of him for being so indecisive as he's chased by 4+ cute girls...

I just don't buy that. There was that one line at the end of volume 2 where she talks about him liking "Someone else" and you can't see her expression but I always felt like that was a red herring judging by the way she treats him in subsequent volumes. Then again, when I think about it she kinda treats him similar to how she's treating Ryuuji now, isn't she?

As always, here are my episode impressions (and general summary):

Toradora 20: I take it back. I really do.

Taiga didn't only pass through the eye of the needle in a burning haystack. She did that with the tornado of emotions whirling her about from the inside out. My god. I never knew I'd switch so fast, but I did. This ... was simply touching.

Oh, do leave comments!

Well, i always thinked that she already knowed about Sumire, that's why she didn't interfere with that thing, when Yuri sensei asked she and Ryuuji for info about Kitamura's behaviour, she just laughed at it (Sumire was there too).

Also, i believe that she traits Kitamura and Ryuuji in that way because she don't use a facade in front of them.

Ami doesn't look too pleased in the preview for the next episode. I'm assuming that (1) she gets shafter again, or (2) Ryuuji did something stupid. I'm sure there are other possibilities, but that seems to be the most obvious ones.

I think she isn't pleased someone tacked a 2-C sign on her jacket, doesn't fit with her style

What I mean is that before this episode she was much friendlier with Ryuuji. She certainly never laughed in his face the way she has with Kitamura.
