Real character building episode worthy of talking to each other about.

I was really caught of guard by the reverse scare tactic. Did'nt see that one coming at all for the most part.

Ryuuji sure got some one on one time with Ami and Minori this episode and it looks to have strengthen the bonds fairly well between both of them, specially Ami.

Ami really showed an interesting part of her character with her insight. I really agree with her in that Ryuuji is like the moon and Minori is like the sun. It fits well with how he is in that:

With Minori who is like the sun, she brightens up everyones life, but the sun is not with us forever, it comes and goes without us able to keep it shining on us at all times. But the moon is their for the dark times, providing its glow to guide us through the darkness. The moon is needed by those that cannot shine on their own. In this case it would be Ami and Taiga, both of them have a kind of darkness inside of them that only someone with a gentle glow like Ryuuji can help them with.

Hoh man Skycloud that was a great observation. The whole moon and the sun thing. I totally did not go into depth with that. I'm impressed with your insight. Do you think that the sun lighting the moon bears any significance on their relationship as well? But yes this episode was great. Lots of character development. Ryuuji's got quite a lot on his hands now and he doesn't even realize it.

Taiga shown some jealousy when she saw Ryuji and Minori watching the fireworks together by having a depressed face...I really hope Ryuji realised it soon..

I think rather than moon, i prefer to say stars. Coz when the sun is up, moon is down (well, except for eclipse and stuff like that). For stars, it's always there, just we can't see it coz of the sun or moon (maybe). And we normally look up upon a star, right? Is there where you say, "i wish upon a moon"?

Rather than others, i saw that ryuuji is the most lonely one. He's the type that the one that always makes the sacrifice. Reminds me of myself. And I know the feeling. It's quite lonely. Had to put up smiles so my sacrifice won't be futile.

Well, I think this episode set into stone, that Ryuuji and Minori aren't quite suited for each other.
Although the saying opposites attract can be true sometimes, It's a rarity that it actually happens.

Although similar in some aspects, in the main ones (Aka, personality) they're just much too far apart.

This Episode definitely seemed like a "Draw the story away from Taiga-X-Ryuuji" kinda thing,
seeing as the past quite a few episodes have been about the bond between those two.


However, this episode kinda pointed me towards a potential new coupling. I'm not going to say anything about it, since I haven't read the Manga yet, and I don't even want to spoil it for myself =\

I guess eventually Minori will have feeling towards Ryuji. Taiga will feel jealous and realize that the one she love was Ryuji not Kitamura.

well, as for me, i dont quite agree on minorin and ryuuji being not suited. well, i agree on the "sun and moon" thing, but minorin said that, she still needs ryuuji to change her. and also, using the fact that ryuuji is like the moon(being there when darkness comes), minorin still has a void in her(on ep9 she said that she doesnt believe in ghost things).

as for ami. from the beginning i really think that she is serious on ryuuji, and this episode makes that a fact. as we can see, she is really jealous.

hehehe.. this might be contradicting, but i still want taiga^^,.. men, this episode is all about the other two girls. i kinda feel, somewhat sorry for taiga. hehehe, but i kinda like her expression(or rather her jealousy:D) in this episode, cause it makes the following episodes more exiting^^.
