Epic catfight between Kanou-sempai and Taiga, ’nuff said.
… okay maybe not just enough.
I admit, this is one of the best Toradora! episode yet….. eh, I have a feeling I’ve already said this back a while ago? Well, anyways, you get the idea. Toradora is really awesome.
I’m actually glad to see Kanou-senpai getting her screentime after being a cameo presence for most of the series, and even when she was the one causing Kitamura’s emo-ness, she still remained quite out of the limelight.
I felt really sad for Kitamura when he confessed to Kanou in front of the whole school, yet she just changed the topic and left, not giving him an answer at all. That was just really wrong of her.
Subsequently, Taiga’s rage and her confrontation of Kanou-senpai, at the expense of her own crush, has just elevated her in to one of the best Rie Kugimiya tsundere roles. I’m so glad that Toradora is this good T.T.
Kanou-senpai’s heart-breaking confession of her feelings towards Kitamura, well more accurately, her playing-dumb of it as not to make him follow her to the States was also really touching too.
There’s one part I’m not getting though, which happens at the end of the episode, when Ami walks past Minorin and asks, “Has your guilty feeling disappeared?”. I wonder what was she referring to?
The epilogue with the ”バカ”。 postcard from Taiga to Kanou was awesome, btw.
P.S. Still no new OP and ED for Toradora? Though I must profess, I’m addicted to Pure-Parade.
