After half a year, it’s time to bid the cast of Toradora! farewell.

But before that, time to go through the final episode.

Toradora finale primer.

Nice ending… although they got the procedures reversed somewhat.

To the novel readers: was it exactly like in the novel? Or were there differences?

Finally, the two admit their feelings for each other. GJ, Ryuji!

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.

A sorta “break” episode from the events of last week.

Minorin attempts to reconcile with Ami~n, pretending their argument never happened in the first place. Meanwhile Taiga takes an extended break to meet her mother after she hears about her accident.

Taking advantage of her prolonged absence, Ryuji asks Kitamura to pretend that he was the one saving Taiga instead of him, and to deny of Taiga speaking anything in her half-conscious state. Kitamura begrudgingly accepts it. Taiga comes back nearing the end of the episode, and Ryuji acts as normal as he can be around her. When she mentions about her mumblings, he denies it of course.

Now the ball’s fully in Ryuji’s court to pick either his crush on Minorin or to acknowledge and accept Taiga’s feelings. Next episode should be more exciting than this one…

Ami finally explodes on Minorin. I certainly didn’t expect her to lose her calm, but the buildup of the tension was nicely done, I’ll have to say.

On the other hand, Taiga (inadvertently) confesses her feelings to Ryuji. How will Ryuji respond to that?

And I have gotta say, the winter-wear in this episode looks really fugly.

Nearly half a year ago, I would have never expected this level of empathy from this show. Just goes to show that the old adage, “books should not be judged by their cover” really does work for anime too.

It’s a night of heartbreaks all around. Ami~n’s words last week are beginning to come true.

At the least Minorin’s rejected Ryuji, so we’ll have to see what direction the show will move in to next week. But 19 is definitely a very emotional episode. I’m at a loss of words to talk about it, so just watch the episode yourself.

One thing’s for sure, Taiga ;_;.

P.S. Taiga all dolled up kinda resembles Hagu a bit, don’tcha think?

From now on, anyone who pigeonholes Taiga with Shana and Louise ought to be shot.
