I started watching the RAW, and when I realized there was a significant focus on Ami, I stopped. This is going to be good. Again. Haha.

Good episode. Focused mostly on Taiga, but both Ami and Minorin had a nice scene as well.

The episode was mostly building up to the next episode (probably the climax of this arc).

Kushieda gets on my nerves but I'd rather watch her get depressed than have my eardrum bleed from her hyperactiveness. Great episode but there's no Inko-chan appearance. And Taiga's voice fits her to a tee. The Christmas tree pretty. It made me want to clap with her when they finished it XD The WTF expression of everyone when a lone ball crashed the tree was even more priceless. I'm sensing a large amount of drama next episode...

So, Taiga was in
... Hm, I really like how the series tells and shows us new insights into the characters personalities and private life after 17 episodes allready.

In all, it was another great episode with small character developments for Taiga and Ami, and Minori, who is still uneasy around Ryji but who tried to be more open and friendly by apologizing for not hanging around him and Taiga like she did before. The episode was devoid of (high) drama until the last few minutes ... poor Minori, must be really hard for her.
The relation between Ryji and Minori begins to deepen more in this episode - the last minutes are touching. And Ryji speaks to Minori, for once, rather bluntly about his feelings for her. Not in a classic お前が好きだ! way, more in an symbolic way, but still rather directly for japanese.

I liked Taiga telling about why she wanted to believe in Santa (at least as much as I could understand). Thought that was some really nice insight into her character.

Can't wait for subs! ^^

To quote Rhinox from Beast Wars: "I'm in a BAD mood".

And actually, I'm always rather curious about how much they've changed...

Rhinox in Beast Machines, ugh.... I know I'm going off on a tangent but way to ruin a good character.

And now that I'm so late getting to this episode I'll wait until tomorrow afternoon to check it out if there's subs so I can fully appreciate it without any spoilers. After that I'll try and find time to read V7 before next Wednesday. God, I love this series!

She's cried wolf too many times for him to really pay attention(in terms of teasing). Better luck next time.

Honestly they didn't change too much, left out a few things. Would have liked to see more, but the pacing was steady, next week should be very interesting.

wellllllll, if it were top heavy and hit it just right...... but its basically a "one in a million" hit.

Oddly, its the first element of this story that really has my left eyebrow arched. Bit of a 'deux ex whoopsie' to mangle the Latin....

It's a ball traveling at a several dozen meters per second. Knocking a tree off it's base should be the least it can do.

Taiga basically stole the whole show. Somehow, her strong belief in something or someone watching over her explains her recent cutefest and good behavior very well. While I myself am an atheist, Taiga's overwhelming reverence of the Santa she believes in makes her so much more human and less iron-lady; everyone has something they believe in.

Also, young Taiga is totally kawaii!!!
