ToraDora! Episode 13

Posted 12-28-2008 at 07:56 PM by The Anime MMOG
Alright. I'm sorry for making this post so late when the episode came out on Thursday. I also debated whether to keep the subs onto the screencaps I took, but I decided to keep them on.

Yosh. This can be described as one of the best episodes yet, if not for the cheese that smothered.. everything. Footnotes are in the spoilers.
Spoiler!


First things first, a recap from Episode 12 (to which I will not blog about nya nya). It leaves us with multiple cliffhanger: Daddy did not come to see Taiga(1), Minorin(2) is completely upset about Taiga having anything to do with her dad, and Ryuugi(3) is still confident that her dad will come to watch her. Of course, this is masking the inevitable growth of the three's relationship, which could go either way.


Brilliant. Ami meter goes up +150%.

The episode starts with the Beauty Contest. Ami(4), in her SM suit, grabs the attention of nearly everyone in the room (besides Ryuugi. If only her charm worked on him...) In the middle of Ami introducing a contestant, Ryuugi receives a text message from Taiga's dad. To be brief, he tells Ryuugi to tell Taiga that he won't be able to come watch her, and they still aren't going to live together anymore. Once again, Minorin is correct. Dad's a bum that can't hold promises. I can't help but to wonder how she knows, though. As Ryuugi continues to wope about how he was stupid and all that jazz (selfless people piss me off sometimes), Taiga enters the stage.


'Dawwww. So moe~ HOLY SHIT SHE'S RIPPING HER DRESS

We see Taiga looking all cute with the dress Ryuugi sewed for her (The wings look tacky >:V), still unknowing that her dad stood her up. You can't help but feel sorry for her, no matter the level of hate you have for Taiga (cough). The dress helps too. Ami calls out Taiga's dad to come up to the stage, but no one comes. Taiga rages, yells at everyone (who cheers her on for some reason). At this point, she knows her dad was being a bum. Poor girl ;_;. For reasons not known to men, Taiga commands the contestant in the maid~ costume to bring her a bag. She then proceeds to jump into the bag for a magic trick. Not kidding.


Never open that bag. NEVER.

At last, Taiga is declared winner. The school council then declares the Mister Lucky contest. Basically, winner gets the President's notes and crowns the winner of the Beauty contest, and then dances with her. At this point, Ryuugi feels like he has to be with her, so he joins the race. Possibly the best part of the episode. The race starts, and Ryuugi is pushed to the ground. As a result, his WILL gets boosted by +50 and he goes into GAR mode. Seriously. The kid runs on top of people's heads and on the railing of the fence! But wait!


All of this for the unappreciative tiger. ;_;

Minorin appears out of nowhere and starts running past Ryuugi. He sees her dedication and starts (once again) WOEing about how he was stupid to think her dad was a good person. The other racers zoom through both Minorin and Ryuugi, but they eat a baseball and Minorin jumping them. In the end, both of them finish together, holding hands. (SCORE RYUUGI) In the midst of all this, Taiga, watching her friends struggling to finish for her sake, decides they don't need to worry so much about her. Hurrr durrr.



As the day comes to an end, it seems they are having a bonfire. It seems all is well. Of course, we learn that Minorin went through the same events exactly a year ago. At this point I can't help but wonder why exactly she was so angry at Ryuugi for experiencing the same events, and reacting in the same fashion that she did. Didn't even bother to tell him about it. Ah, who cares. We're left with a scene of Minorin questioning her sexuality, and then people dance around a fire.

As a critic, I'd have to say this was one of the more enjoyable episodes. It gave a lot of details to the characters, and even Kawamura, the guy that never shows any intimacy towards anyone, seemed to have blushed after talking to the school council President. Also, Ryuugi didn't seem to be so embarrassed to talk to Minorin (who even wonders how she is able to talk so easily with him), and didn't hesitate to hold her hand. Same with Taiga, who accepted Kawamura(5)'s dance request. Most importantly, it even advanced the plot, the plot that barely existed in the first place.
