Toradora! 23


Oh wow, that was an awesome ending. I salute the way the director has been crafting this episode to spring on us. The confrontation and explosion in the computer lab was just so awesomely done. Now, if bloody Ryuji can stop being so undecided and go after Taiga…. especially after Minorin’s relinquishment.


Anyways, Taiga in twin-tails and meido-fuku was kinda refreshing to see…


Oh god, I can’t believe that idiot Haruta actually got himself a girlfriend already!


Despite how they started out, Taiga and Ami sure are best of friends now. In fact, I’d actually think that Ami’s more closer to Taiga than Minorin is.


And of course, Bro-Ami was magnificent this episode. This show might be titled “Toradora!”, but my real heroine will always be Ami.

    Oh I want Ami for a girl friend but she won’t tolerate a thick headed person.

    blackinmind: If you can’t tell the difference between a blonde with a voluptuous body and a brunette so flat that even childrens’ swimsuits hang loosely on her chest, you’ve got issues. ;)

    Kouji pwned everyone by getting a girlfriend first lol.

    Taiga could have sold all the chocolates by herself, but unfortunately Ryuji “the Gangster Eyes” Takasu was standing nearby, so thereby a bit of help from our resident model Ami was necessary.

    I was always a supporter of minorin, but she annoyed me this episode. She was blowing a right trumpet at tiaga for the exact same reason she didnt go for ryuuji ahhh, hypocrite.
    Tiaga doesnt confess to ryuuji because of minorin, minorin doesnt accept her own feelings towards ryuuji because of taiga. So annoying. He should just go for ami!!
    I wont be happy if he ends up with taiga.

    YES! AMIN FOR THE WIN. She’s the true star of the show, and frankly (imo) the most exciting character to watch, contrary to her air time. KitaEri, her seiyuu, was absolutely brilliant as well. As a matter of fact, I think her character development was the most out of the 5 of them over the course of the series, and at the same time, exceptionally nuanced.

    I really don’t want this series to end, not only because of Amin but all 5 of them. Seriously, I don’t mind if they all stayed in status quo (forever) because the group dynamics and chemistry are awesome.

    Yeah I agree on the computer lab part… wgiven the smallest possible time, the tension was able to rocket sky-high. However I got a little irritated at Minorin for exploding at Taiga; because to me, she’s guilty of those things herself

    I guess I’ll be satisfied with a Ryuuji x Taiga end
    …but in my heart it will always be Ami~n for the win!!!

    (BTW wouldn’t having a mother as beautiful as Yasuko be torture? (assuming that you wouldn’t want to do anything weird to her coz SHE’S YOUR MOM! now if she’s NOT then…) she’s my kind of MILF =p~

    Taiga: No Minorin YOU should have Ryuuji.
    Minorin: no way, he should be yours.
    Taiga: Im sure of it, take him!
    Minorin: But you would make such a nice couple!
    Ryuuji: I’m going over to Ami’s place (o_o)

    :P i didn’t fully understand the last scene, but i understood that Minorin and taiga hinder each other with Ryuuji or, as Coushi said; Taiga doesn’t confess to Ryuuji because of Minorin, Minorin doesn’t accept her own feelings towards ryuuji because of taiga.

    i agree…we need another series with all of them….senior year….not just focusing on amin..because shes annoying me as well…all of them annoy me with their hidden feelings…but hers is most annoying..because she knows all of them like ryuugi..including herself…but she doesnt confess eitha….she simply throws out statements here and there and acts always depressing around ryuugi…but cmon…..ryuugi is like any particular guy……hints hints hints are not gonna get a man…..a man needs woman to be upfront….like men are…..period…personally ryuugi should just bang all three at the same time….

    I know! I just wont be happy unless they make some kinda spinnoff of this, or make the ending the best freaking ending EVER. anythings possible, after all, Ami did change a hell of a lot from the snotty brat she was. maybe shell end up with Ryuugi or Kitamura? hmmmm….

    This whole show would be better if Ryuji and Taiga just remain best of friends and go about their own ways in love.

    I agree with the threesome. You have the short one, the upbeat one, and the super-hot model

    Bah, so much unhappiness from shippers. Maybe we should just have a Ryuuji Kitamura end.

    I know this is a long shot, but they’re in second year right, meaning they have one more year? … If only some big twist happened and they aired another season showing their last year or afterwards( like clannad after story) but that wont happen…Pretty sad to see this group of character’s lives come to an end =[
