It's ironic, i just see again the episode and i cant take off my mind how ironic is this, Minori is pushing Ryuuji to Taiga and Taiga is pushing him to Minori, besides, Taiga and Minori knows this. Minori is playing fool on Ryuuji (nothing has happen between us, you know Takasu-kun) and Taiga is playing adult on Ryuuji (I will take it from here on Ryuuji, i've grown up, so chase after Minori).

What's up with the Golgo 13 reference from Minori? Haven't watched that one so I wouldn't know.

What I do know is the "Kira!" moment was just for laughs (and they're doing it wrong actually). Unless of course the staff is implying that they have watched Macross Frontier and the staff knows how it ended... dun-dun-dun!

What are you talking about? Did you not notice Mayama had finally moved forward with Rika, leading to Ayumi to finally move on as well? Oh, I forgot, you SKIPPED and watched the end.

While H&C1 is definitely better, I personally don't find H&C2 that bad. Speaking of which, the director for Toradora is Nagai Tatsuyuki, who happens to be the director of H&C2, so he's got experience in this genre at least.

Oh and, all you novel readers beyond volume 8, can you please stop spoiling? Not even with spoiler tags, because common sense dictates that spoiler tags in this thread are assumed to be for discussion of episode 20.

Delicious Epic trolling.

Though a point to be made is [B]Do they have to?[B] I mean, we're expecting them to get into a relationship from one year? I get annoyed with this sort of all or nothing attitude. So what if they go their separate ways? And we're too early to be bitching about this, the series isn't over.

But still we do anyway, more I'm guessing to get a rise out of our fellow fans.

Well the Minorin ship still has sails, certainly took a broadside. Ami.. well I admire the effort to go down with the ship. And Taiga is taking evasive movement.

Now is this cut in stone? Likely not. I know that will try my best to shut up and enjoy the ride.

Come on Ryuuji wake up!!! Taiga bent over backwards for him with her dad. Shes totally changed herself for the better because of him. Unfortunately he now is repaying her by going for Minori for Taiga's sake *sigh*

I thought Taiga was going to act this way and it makes her breakdown so much more touching for it.

Taiga and Ryuuji act more like a married couple then most ppl do nowadays

Given how little time there is left for the show and the fact that he's never expressed anything outside of physical attraction, it'd be a little weird if he went with her. Plus she's kinda being a bitch to him (Not that that stopped him and Taiga).

At the beginning, Minori was the only girl (among her, Taiga and Ami, I mean) who didn't seem like a complete waste of time. Now, it's so goddamn hard to chose.

Taiga was never tsundere in the first place. She wasn't even fully tsun. I realized this recently, but her demeanor was primarily due to her being often misunderstood and misconstrued. When there were more people who did reach out to her and saw her fundamental niceness she didn't need to put up a facade of 'me vs. the world.' Ryuuji also heavily affected her relations with others, because while he was misunderstood and thought of as a bastard he never let it affect his niceness and his self. Taiga changed a lot because of Ryuuji, and this episode highlights that. Last episode was Taiga and her epiphany; she recognizes, however, the necessity of fulfilling her promise with Ryuuji despite that, so she's hurting herself heavily in the process.

Kanou Sumire is a beautiful and intelligent chick, and in addition she also has a wonderful body. She's not as sexy as Ami, but she has the stuff.

To answer your question, it was her, and yes, she was a model.

Oh, was it? I thought it was a magazine, actually, with Sumire being featured as they didn't expect her to pop up.
