Hm...
TBH (to be honest) I do not like where the end is going!
Sure they got together, but still I actually wish Ami and Ryuuji were together.
I wish this anime would get at least 50 episodes!
But you cannot always have what you want!
Oh ye, doesn't it seem like they rushed through this episode?
So far I see no actual use of Ami...

-So that is what I think of Episode 24.

I guess for not only this episode, but for the episode before this, ill have to strongly agree with what Markus-Oink posted.
I mean, sure, im still enjoying the whole season and all, but now that it's coming to an end, i feel as if the producer's are starting to rush towards the finish. Really, just two or three episodes ago, i could have sworn that ryuuji was head over heels for minorin, but than out of nowhere, he not only turns to taiga, but proposes to her as well! Im not really sure how to feel about this whole dramatic shift yet since i've only recently watched it, but now the plots got me mixed up and a bit frustrated about how things are unraveling. Now sure, i know that the TaigaXRyuuji pairing was almost inevitable, but the way they did things during the whole " Minorin likes ryuuji " conflict kind of threw me off. Seriously, at least they could have at least spent a bit more time before they cast her aside, but now, seeing as they already did, its probably too late for that. So, to make up for all this, im just hoping that episode 25 beats the rest.

But anyway, i've been wondering something about the whole Ryuuji marrying Taiga thing. I mean i was surprised by that, but doesn't it make you wonder if there might actually be a whole future arc to this? o.o Like, when everyone is all grown up, and Ryuuji and Taiga start up this whole new dramatic conflict induced story, involving all the old and new characters? Wouldn't that be awesome? x3 Who knows, maybe it might even work, seeing all the stuff they've left out, in my opinion anyway. Perhaps giving ami a chance at a relationship, or even giving Minorin another shot at Ryuuji? I know that i wouldn't be the only person to enjoy it; plus it would be great if the series continued on beyond the 25 episodes!

So yeah, those are just my thoughts, opinions, maybe even dreams for episode 24 and on. :3

That may be true, however she was doing this against Ryuuji's will. If she had listened to what he had to offer (getting a part time job of his own), she wouldn't have been sick, wouldn't have been hurt during the argument and wouldnt have ran away.
I feel that the whole running away thing for Yasuko was needed though, to advance the plot one step further. For running away as Ryuuji said wouldnt be very adult like.

As for what Kigaru-Kun said, I partially agree and partially disagree: I felt that as the plot progressed, and got more intense, more had to go on and faster in an episode for it to be good. However, I do agree that it's going just a little fast (FOR GODS SAKE THEY'RE GETTING MARRIED AT 18!) I also agree that it would make a great second season if there were some sort of future conflict between all of them.

One can only hope.

this show is awesome, i like taiga-ryuuji pairing, however i think they are being stupid trying to elope, while they are still so young. oh well i guess since they will be living at ryuuji's grandparents i guess it will work out somehow. Also i feel sorry for ryuujis mom, i think she was really hurt.
i hope this episode will be longer, but by the looks of it episode 25 looks like the last episode.

I love this show so much! I think they rush things on this anime,I mean getting married?Wow that's fast.
Well,I like ryuugi-taiga to go out and stuff because they were so close :)
I feel bad about Yasuko too
I hope this episode gets longer because Im just wandering what kind of life ryuugi and taiga will have staying at ryuugi's grandparents.
Hopefully they'll make more episodes like 50-100

I think they rushed Taiga and Ryuuji's relationship too much. Ryuuji didn't even start to show signs of liking her until 2 episode 22! That's only 2 episodes ago! granted, it was probably a week or so in the anime, but seriously, one week, he realizes his feelings, the next he's marrying her.

Was it just me or was anyone else confused by the conversation between Yasuko and Ryuuji?

Other random questions:
-How in the world did Taiga manage to push Ryuuji over the bridge?
-How did they not get hurt?
-How did Ryuuji's phone not completely die from water damage?
-Why does Minorin carry her life savings with her?
-What did Kitamura hold up when he said "Don't forget about me"?
-Why was Yasuko out when she's sick?
-Did anybody else notice that Ryuuji's grandparents look EXACTLY like older versions of Taiga and Ryuuji?
-WTF?! Did they get married on the train or something?

Well, After paying close attention to episode 24, watching it about 3 times over. I seen the preview for the next episode..

I think Taiga ends up running away from Ryuuji to go live with her mother because she feels it'll be better that way.

The thing that tipped me off was the last scene of the preview, Ryuuji was looking to the left looking sad where Taiga should've been standing.

I'll try my best to answer your questions, buzzini.

-How in the world did Taiga manage to push Ryuuji over the bridge?
Taiga was strong enough to make a whole in Ryuuji's wall in the first few episodes, it would only take a gentle push to send him flying

-How did they not get hurt?
Not totally sure, but in Counterstrike (an awesome PC game) when you fall from any distance into water (even if its just ankle deep), you don't get hurt... not sure if that helps.

-How did Ryuuji's phone not completely die from water damage?
His cell phone is a super special awesome phone forged from the tooth of a shark, nail of an orgre, and heart of a unicorn...
God, dont be such a nit picker :P

-Why does Minorin carry her life savings with her?
She probably saw it coming, and decided to bring her money with her.
then again, maybe she was on her way to the bank when she was told to meet up at Kawashima's house.

-What did Kitamura hold up when he said "Don't forget about me"?
Those were if im not mistaken, rice or food certificates. Redeemable for food/rice....um..

-Why was Yasuko out when she's sick?
Wouldn't you be out looking for your son if they've disobeyed your orders?Being sick wouldnt hold me back...

-Did anybody else notice that Ryuuji's grandparents look EXACTLY like older versions of Taiga and Ryuuji?
IMO it looked more like a Ryuuji and Yasuko.

-WTF?! Did they get married on the train or something?
No, Ryuuji just called her his wife:
a) keep things simple for his grandparents (whom he's never seen)
b)because the fact that she's running away with him would generally be interpreted as a yes if he actually did propose.

phew.

it happened too fast.. the thing whether ryuuji will like taiga or not.. is it because taiga's pitiful? ryuuji-taiga confession is not "oh-so-romantic"
i'm glad that they're together.. but their decision to get married when ryuuji turned 18? duh.. many holes are left opened..
