Just watched it. Delightful episode. I'm really becoming attached to all the characters. This episode surprised me in the way Taiga and Ami ended up spending time together. And Ami's "breaking free" was incredibly well done.

"Baka chihuahua."

Is it me, or is the whole concept of "being yourself" a little meaningless when you have a crappy personality to begin with?

It seemed somehow like Minori's voice in this episode was... different. I mean, normally she's Yui Horie at her Yui Horiest, but I didn't hear that at all this time.

Lets just say she has some "bad social" skills. She has true friends like Kitamura to begin with. She's not that bad as a person herself. Aside from her "bitchy" true sefl and etc. I haven't seen her do anything "bad" or "annoying" etc.

Wow.... I feel like I was in hyperspeed on that episode, very dense information stream.

Yeah, Ami doesn't seem "evil"... just broken like the rest of this crew. She'll fit in wonderfully assuming Taiga doesn't gut her and make ornaments of her entrails

As for Taiga, we can only wonder what emotions are shredding in her little head in that last scene.
(no, don't tell me)

Second this. I assumed she forced her to sing and dance, but i am not quite sure as well.

Minori was hilarious this episode, she's slowly becoming my favorite character.

@ noobita and risingstar3110:

I think Taiga forced Ami into doing a load of different impressions, since she was so adamant on putting on an act in front of her classmates. That had tire her out at some point given some of the wacky situations she was made to do, Micheal Jackson as a bus tour guide, Mona Lisa taking a corner at 200km/h?

And apparently, plenty of photos have been taken for blackmailing purposes.

Kitamura is not a "true friend". She would be able to act as herself in front of a 'true friend', nor would a 'true friend' dump the responsibility to help with someone else. She didn't even confide in him when that stalker was around, yet she confided in Ryuuji, someone she's just met? That just goes to show me the level of friendship that they truly have. I could talk negative about Kitamura all day, I have total hate for that guy right now.

Also, did Ryuuji forget that he's in love with Minorin? No blush scenes with her, no stuttering over words, nothing whatsoever.

Yeah it feels like it's easy for the viewer/reader to dislike him, I wonder if that was the author's intent or just our perception?

I think I understand why Ami is so popular now. Seems a bit quick how she turned to Ryuuji though.

Well, he's not as 'dere-dere' towards Minorin as Aisaka is towards Kitamura - he just really gets kinda.. shy.

As for the Kitamura thing, I blame the director - since in the novels, when Kitamura was explaining Ami's two-faced nature to Ryuuji at the restaurant, he noted that Ami had always manipulated the adults with her 'good girl' act but didn't use it on him... and since becoming a model, she'd stopped confiding in Kitamura and was showing him the mask too. In other words, she'd repudiated the friendship they'd had and given him the false face, and she was no longer being true to herself. It wasn't Kitamura ending things, but Kawashima - he didn't know about the stalker because she no longer talked to him... or with anyone.

As for confiding in Ryuuji... he's really easy to talk to, and in the novels this came after Ryuuji helped Ami get away from the stalker following a failed attempt to intimidate him. Basically, a lot of the dropped stuff in the anime follows this pattern; a bunch of details which are important are either shuffled around to be shown later (like the Kitamura confessing to Taiga bit) or are apparently left out entirely. A lot of the hate towards Kitamura (that he's an insensitive prick) comes from this, since the parts that showed his sensitivity or that he's not a totally blind asshole were left out or moved by the directors.

Regarding gripes over what's been omitted from the anime, I would like to complain that the hot lesbian scene that I had been imagining between Ami and Taiga was not included in this episode. Regarding her character type though I think she is becoming a neoclassic yingtongdere now.

Stalkers: if a drip with a camera is such a scary figure, I hope Ami never meets any Paparazzi photographers, she would probably slit her wrists on the spot.

Overall it was interesting to see the story move on, but I was a bit unconvinced not only by the stalker but by the low level of hostility between the girls given what had gone before, I felt their coming together should have been a bit more grudging. E.g. Her choice of staying with Taiga rather than Ryuu was pretty false, that needed developing further to make it (and subsequent events) plausible. So I think maybe they should have taken two episodes rather than one to effect the change in Ami from two-faced princess to one-faced comrade in arms.

Minori: I want to see her snatch Ryuuji from the jaws of defeat and run off with him! I am sure from the way she behaved at the beginning of the series that she fancies him and has just been sacrificing herself in a misplaced way on Taiga's account. In this episode she didn't do much apart from the belly thing, I hope she comes back to the forefront soon.

So is the anime for ToraDora supposed to be 13eps or a full 24-26? I don't think I've read anything definitive.

@Samatarou:
Minorin actually have the lowest chance among the three to end up with the main char statistically speaking. Because a) she didn't appear first; b)she didn't appear last

But if it's always true, we will call it "anime law" rather than statistic. The novel or manga or even the anime can prove quite opposite

I'd say Ami has a lower chance than Minori, since at least she's the current love interest. I'd bet money on Taiga x Ryuuji though.

Does Ami actually dig Ryuuji though? I got the impression that this was another one of her acts.
