I really enjoyed this episode. Taiga's character/personality is so interesting. Kugimiya Rie is doing a great job with this subtler tsundere. And it's nice to hear Kitamura Eri in the role of the model.

Ryuuji and his relationship with Taiga continue to be very satisfying. I'm actually loving Majima Junji's voice, and the way he's giving us the personality. Kitamura is also a satisfying personality. I do wonder that everyone, including the transfer student, seems to have forgotten the idea that Ryuuji's look is scary.

And I continue to enjoy the Horrible Raws versions of things, especially now that they are giving us 640x480 instead of smaller. Seeing all those ads from the TV broadcasts is always a trip.

Vexx 2008-10-29 14:15

aye, I've often wished the fansubbers would leave the ads in.... they're hilarious in their own right.

Sounds like I'm going to enjoy ep 5 as well, but got some classes to deal with first.

^ For some medicore animes, I prefer the adverts to the anime itself. Anyone seen people dressing up as fanta bottles advert? ^_^''

Anyway, on with the episode.

Spoiler for Episode 5:

Deathscyther 2008-10-29 15:59

Great episode, they've stayed pretty true to the novels and I liked the animation and the voice acting. They got a lot done in this episode as well. Taiga's personality was very well conveyed this episode.

I gave the episode a 9.

typhonsentra 2008-10-29 16:01

Well, Ami behaves and speaks almost exactly how I imagined she would, the VA captured the feel perfectly.

Kikuchi 2008-10-29 16:13

I was waiting for that scene with Minori doing the cross sign. I wasn't disappointed >D

stormy001_M1A2 2008-10-29 16:27

Good ep, I enjoy it. Consistency is well maintained.
I liked this scene the most. Hehehehe.

Ami is a vicious 2 faced bitchy chihuahua and Taiga is no less bitchy either. Battle of the Bitches is on.

MILF is hot. Yeah baby.

We need to see more foot action like we did in the first episode.

Ami is all kinds of wonderful, and i hope they can keep the rivalry between the two as fresh as it came across in this episode.

Haesslich 2008-10-29 17:15

Nice to see they've kept Ami the way she was - a total two-faced bitch to start. I just hope they keep the torture in... since that'll be... interesting. Or the ending of Vol 2 for that matter.

And does anyone else see Yasuko as the older, more MILFy version of Haruhi's Mikuru, but with more childishness?

typhonsentra 2008-10-29 17:22

Mikuru was prety childish herself. Yasuko's just a more self-centered child-type.

The karaoke thing? I hope so, too.

Spoiler for Scheming Taiga is scheming:

I really liked how Ami turned out to have a gentle face that she shows to everyone and an ''evil'' side which she used to give Taiga that ''killer'' hit:heh:.

msuwildog80 2008-10-29 20:06

I am completely biased, but novel inspired episodes are just plain wonderful.

Since this is the episode made to describe her bad qualities, I am hoping next one will show some of the vulnerability and charm of Ami. She is pretty much how I pictured her to be from reading the novel. Which really makes me excited for the upcoming events. In many ways I perfer her with Ryuji, but definately some good points for Taiga this episode (in terms of shipping for Ryuji i suppose ;p)

Still cant stand Kitamura, the character just doesnt seem genuine. And for some reason.. Minori is drawn really ugly this episode. Maybe its just me thinking this, but at least her character was funny.

Overall, I definately loved this episode... and really high hope for next 2 (since it seems to be all novel inspired).

I am very curious about what was so interesting about what Taiga saw. I have a theory that


I also want to say that Yuusaku is not a good childhoodfriend and it seems that he values the friendship with ryuji more than Ami. I know he wants to warn Ryuji about the dangers of ami, but still with friends like Yuusaku, Ami doesn't need enemies.

A very enjoyable episode:

Spoiler for spoiler:

Need more Ami-chan!!

Cat Megex 2008-10-29 21:33

...I actually didn't say anything about that because I did indeed draw that same conclusion from the preview, and had assumed you would have as well. >_>

I loved the fake-out of it where she motions "yes" then suddenly switches to "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO" mode ;D

PS: Why do people always Spoiler code comments about the episode in it's episode thread? Shouldn't one assume the Ep5 discussion thread has discussion about Ep5 in it? ;p
