Suzumiya Haruhi-chan - 05 & 06

Suzumiya Haruhi-chan - 05

LOL.....It's the best episode so far its so hilarious and to boot that up the animation improved. This episode is a good follow up of the baseball game in the original anime. Good thing the personality of the characters are still there and they are all funny in their own way. What I love in this episode is the haruhi stuff, being abusive and omnipotent at the same time. Oh how I wish there would be a season two. Haruhi is really the best...but I also like Yuki....
I really like the way they inserted some non-chibi pics to emphasize Haruhi's emotions.

Suzumiya Haruhi-chan - 06

The previous episode was Haruhi centered right? Now we will get more doses of the adorable otaku Yuki. There's no way Asahina could beat a cosplaying Yuki 'cause she can cosplay things that are impossible for a human to cosplay. They used non-chibi pics again and I love it and it added more amusement in the episode. Achakura is also adorable and Yuki just like to pick on her. I noticed that Yuki sung Paradise Lost (the OP of Ga-rei -zero-) and of course, its in Yuki version. (Yuki's seiyuu is the seiyuu of Kagura)
Wow, episode 4&5 are much2x better than the previous episode so I'm hoping that it'll still
continue to improve...
until then...

Toradora 20-21

Toradora - 20

Toradora never ceases to impresses me because every episode I’m really surprised at the development that is happening and because of that, I like this episode specially the series (I think I just said it in my previous post). Despite that this is a love-com anime; it really amazes me that the love story is quite realistic. It doesn’t jump from one story to another, it’s like everything is connected and the development of the characters doesn’t go to waste for they didn’t waste any time in resetting the relationship of the characters. An example of that is in this episode because Taiga already knows that Minori rejected Ryuuji and it is clearly seen that everything has become quite awkward between the characters and still their relationship continues together despite the changes. I also notice that this series doesn’t resort to fan service and yet it’s a love-com, can you believe that?

In this episode Taiga’s character matures from being dependent to Ryuuji to being independent. It’s nice to see her like that but it pains me to see her support Ryuuji and Minori because base from the previous episode, it can be seen that Taiga likes Ryuuji. Minori’s genki personality has emerged again and that’s a good thing ‘cause I prefer her cheerful character than the depressing one that we saw in past few episode. Ami on the other hand, spends the rest of the episode in a pissed mode and as usual, Ryuuji didn’t understand what she meant when she said when they were talking inside Sudohbucks.
Toradora - 21

This week’s episode of Toradora has once again blown me away. Omg, Toradora just keeps getting better and better. We have a lot of angst in this episode and now, I’m starting to think that this series is not just love-com it’s also action LOL. I never thought that I would see Minori and Ami have a cat fight.

Ami just can’t take the attitude of Minori and began taunting her. Now, I doubt that Ami would end up with Ryuuji and I’m kind of disappointed that we don’t get more Ami development since there is only 4 episodes left. Sigh, more Ami please. I think what Ami said (that she hated Minori for her refusal to admit or even show her true emotion) to Minori was true. Ami’s dialogue through out the series is so magnificent that I’ve got to praise the script writer.

I never thought that Taiga would confess her feelings to Ryuuji at the end and because of that I left my mouth wide open until the ED song was finished. Wow, with this things will move forward and I really hope that J.C. Staff will give us a satisfying and epic closure to the series.
I really like the way the episode ended, when the credits and ending songs are being played but the episode has been extended for a few minutes. It makes the TaigaxRyuuji pairing special and of course the this episode is also special.

Btw, I missed Ryuuji’s reaction when it comes to cleaning and also Taiga getting dragged inside a closet with 4 guys is so funny….

Wowowowowow…..woooooo!!! Four more episodes left…

I’m loving Toradora…

Until then..

Suzumiya Haruhi-chan - 04

All I could say is LOL!!!! It's the best episode so far and the one who made this episode funny was no other than the otaku Yuki. Yuki's antics in this episode revolves in playing ero games, cosplaying, reading cheat game guides and also adopting a pet named Achakura Ryoko. I never expected Asakura to be in this episode but thanks to her feisty attitude and Yuki's actions this episode became my favorite (so far). Wow, I'm liking this version of Yuki....more otaku Yuki please!!

until then..

Suzumiya Haruhi-chan - 02 & 03

Suzumiya Haruhi-chan - 02


It's a lot funnier than the first episode and I'm surprised that Kadokawa released it earlier 'cause I thought it would be released in a weekly basis.

Wtf? Hahaha!!! Yuki playing ero games...priceless. I've read from Sankaku Complex that the girl in the ero game was Nagihiko Fujisaki from Shugo Chara. I find it an odd choice for an ero game since, I know Nagihiko is a male. Anyway Kyon is also funny specially when he has the ability to spurt out semen out of his mouth..LOL.

Btw..Yuki with earphones is so cute...

Suzumiya Haruhi-chan - 03


I really missed Haruhi's antics...

LOL...Palmtop Lion of Hapiness...a massive species change of Tenori Taiga...

Good thing Kyon is still the punching bag of Haruhi...

Ambulance girl Yuki is so kawaii..I hope I can also see her earphones..

Sigh...I still want the season two of Haruhi. I think Kadokawa released this one to ease or appease the angry mob that Kadokawa made because of their shit marketing.

Yare...yare..*face palm*

until then..

Toradora 14-19

Toradora - 14

I think this is more like a transition from the cultural festival arc to the next arc. The ‘Touching Taiga will get you lucky’ was quite amusing even though it was different from the novel. There seems to be a development the character of Ryuuji, Taiga, Minori and Ami.
I think Yuusaku was rejected by the Preseident…Ooohh.. I wonder how would this affect him.

There’s nothing much but still worth watching..

Toradora - 15

What the heck Kitamura …are you in you’re rebellious stage? Kitamura doesn’t look like a delinquent with that yellow hair of his. I really find it stupid that he dyed his hair so that he won’t be running as a student council president. He’s such a kid, trying to get attention by doing that.
It seems that Sumire really rejected Kitamura…
Wow, it seems that Minorin can’t keep her feelings anymore.

Toradora – 16
Wow….another epic episode of Toradora. I never expected that there would be a fist fight in this kind of show. To comment further, I find the choreography quite good despite that this show is in the comedy, romance, slice of life genre. So far, this episode has become one of my favourite Toradora episode.
I feel sad for Kitamura especially when it seems that Kanou didn’t properly respond to his confession. What caught my attention was when Minori heard the conversation of the girls who picked up Taiga’s notebook and saw her picture of Kitamura during the school festival. Then Ami whispered to Minori, “Are your feelings of guilt gone?” and then there was a shot where Ami seems….oh I can’t find words for this just look at the picture here. It seems that Minori feels some what guilty for falling in love with Ryuuji since she thought that Ryuuji and Taiga are together but now she found out that Taiga really like Kitamura and I don’t know what kind outcome will this turn of events produce. I hope they’ll tackle this one in the future episode. I know its still early for this but I hope J.C. staff will give us a epic ending.

Toradora – 17


At last, we got a new opening entitled Silky Heart. When I first heard this, it’s just so-so but I think I could like it eventually. I still like Parade but I’m starting to like this one. There’s also a new ending entitled orange and it’s also a so-so for me but same with the opening I think it could grow on me.
Wow, what a good change of pace. We get to see Taiga’s smile several times in this episode. I think this is a start of a new arc and they are preparing for a Christmas party. It doesn’t seem special but I think in the future episodes it’ll be interesting. It was revealed that Maya likes Yuusaku…what’s this…another rival for Taiga. I’m quite irritated at Maya ‘cause she immediately concludes that Ryuuji doesn’t like the idea of YuusakuxTaiga pairing and caliming that she supports him (wth??). I think something is bothering Minorin for quite a while now and I hope the future episodes will give us some explanation.

Toradora – 18


I really find what Ami said interesting. According to her, Ryuuji is acting as the role of father to Taiga and I think it’s true. The way she put it, it makes sense now why Ryuuji was so caring towards Taiga and yet it seems that he doesn’t love her in an intimate way. I know I should be happy that Taiga has been always smiling but it really is awkward to see her smile. The reason why she smiled a lot was because she wanted to be good so that Santa would visit her. She claims that she saw Santa before but I think it was just a dream born because of her belief that someone is watching her.
The shattered star was like a metaphor on what Minori thinks when she agrees to date Ryuuji and I think it was a good illustration. After that Ryuuji said that it can be repaired…it really is a good symbolism.

Oh God, Toradora is really good…I’m hoping for RyuujixMinori ending…

Toradora - 19


What a very emotional episode, even though it’s not a funny episode I still enjoyed it. There has been some notable development in this episode and that is Taiga’s love for Ryuuji. I’m not sure what kind of love is that but because of Taiga’s action, it seems that she developed feelings for Ryuuji by always wanting him to her side. Ryuuji’s position is tough, with the girls falling in love with him and with his unsorted feelings it’ll be difficult for him. I’m rooting for RyuujixMinorin pairing but it’s still ok if Taiga ended up with Ryuuji because I’m expecting it to happen. I find it painful to look at Taiga and Minorin, they both love the same man and they’re not taking any action because they’re best friends and I think by doing that Ryuuji will end up getting hurt more.
It’s heart breaking to see Taiga crying to herself and wanting Ryuuji to her side…I really felt sad. I gotta praise the directing this week, it’s awesome. Especially when Taiga went out to chase after Ryuuji and cried outside and then Minori saw her and then Minori covered her eyes while she was rejecting Ryuuji and ending up running away. Good job J.C. Staff.

Really, I think Toradora will make it in my 2009 Top Picks. I’m simply impressed…

Btw…the ending song suited the episode. Good thing they replaced the up beat ending with the song that Ami and Taiga peformed.

Here's the mass release of Toradora.....Wow that was a lot of impression...Tired....


until then..
