Toradora! 13

Toradora

Oh god, Ami-tan. Oh god.

Toradora

*Gununu* Why does that baka chi always gets the attention?!

This episode in short: Taiga’s father is an asshole. Taiga wins the beauty pageant. Sumire-kaichou springs a surprise event upon the guys. Prize is dancing rights to Taiga and 3 years worth of notes. Ryuuji’s epic dash wins the event. Minorin and him make up and she reveals this happened the year before too. No wonder she was mad when he reappeared again.

Toradora

Mostly a Ryuuji-centered episode actually. God he was really manly during the race, winning it for the sake of Taiga. The last spurt with Minorin joining in for the race was really pretty epic.

Toradora

Anyways, this ends the school festival arc. Goddammit Toradora is getting more and more like Honey and Clover each episode. It’s just so hard to talk about the feelings it evokes in me.

Oh and before I forget, Merry Christmas to all my readers!

    Ryuuji beats Hige in the ‘scary face during school festival sports event’ category easily… although I will say that the angel dress did NOT suit Taiga until the end… but the dominatrix outfit sure fit Ami.

    Oh, and Maria’s birthday is today… since nobody knows what her REAL birth date is, and she was found on Christmas.

    Ami’s costume is…err…stimulating (the crowd actually got turned on :-? )
    Taiga’s facial expressions in this episode were great. Her smile is beautiful (unfortunately, it’s not for Ryuuji).

    I quite like Taiga’s angel outside :( it makes her ultra cute yet mature at the same time. Her hair seems straighter? Can’t wait for subs either way. Still can’t get over wth is Ami wearing rofl xD;; but o well… she’s a model so she has all the confidence… lol

    Catharsis is awesome.

    And I believed Taiga’s Dad would show up. Unfortunately Minorin was correct T_T.

    I see alot of interesting stuffs in this episode. Firstly, finally Taiga and Kitamura steps up. Secondly, and most importantly, it seems that Minorin’s becoming aware of Takasu’s feeling.

    Yeah, Interesting that the end of the midpoint episode implies Kitamura/Taiga and Ryuuji/Minorin rather than Taiga/Ryuuji.

    I am also wondering if we have a mid-point switch where Taiga realizes her independence and self-reliance more, whereas Ryuuji starts realizing how much he depends on Taiga, whereas it was vice-versa for the first half of the season.

    ^_^ Damn right…. oh Toradora! The only one worth enough this season.

    And so, millions of Ami fanboys fapped… AGAIN.

    Minorin running with Ryuuji = win. Strange how no one commented on the girls saying that Ryuuji was ‘dangerous’ when he revealed he was such a handyman, that it wasn’t the looks was ‘dangerous’.

    @Nyan: After knowing his fetish for cleaning, seeing him go delusional over the dress is not really that dangerous anymore. Those girls are only just seeing it for the first time, which explains their remarks.

    I meant more of commenting from their point of view than ours, really…

    Which leaves me thinking, are they starting to see Ryuuji as a really reliable guy rather than just ‘that guy with the scary face’, thus dangerous….

    Or are they just getting freaked out by him ranting under his breath?

    @Nyan
    But whatever it is, it was dead hilarious in the scene where he starts being eloquent about the dress. :D

    “Toradora is getting more and more like Honey and Clover each episode”

    Funny you should say that.
    I was watching this episode last night, and Ryuuji’s voiceovers struck me as incredibly reminiscent of Takemoto’s in H&C, in both mood and delivery.
