Toradora! – 24

td24_01

This is exactly what the episode felt like. I’m glad someone noticed.

What the HELL did I just watch?

Nice OP re-usage.

So Taiga runs away, and Minori yells out her confession down the hallways. Takasu is told to keep chasing Taiga, and so he does.

Small disappointment, but pretty good for a one-man team.

After having found Taiga at work, they are confronted by their mothers about random stuff. Taiga doesn’t want to move back in with her mother (and her new husband and kid), while Ryuuji blows up about Yasuko not letting him work and stuff.

I read some novel spoilers before watching this episode, so it wasn’t like I completely didn’t know what was going to happen. But damn, that was still really surreal. Why the hell were they even running away? Because they had a row with their mothers? Seems kind of sketchy to me. But then again, they are only teenagers. Thank god Ryuuji realizes it, or I might’ve had to lower Toradora!‘s score (even more) in my books.

Great plan.

After running away and falling into a lake, they end up at Ami’s… and tell the gang of their plan to run away. See first picture of this post. The gang completely disapproves, but they give the two all their savings just to help them along anyway.

Tsundere A~min is fine too.

And god dammit. Poor Minorin! Being dumped by her crush and her best friend all at once.

Of course, the next day, everyone notices that Takasu and Taiga are missing, but it’s still nothing big… for now.

Ami and Minorin pretty much only have each other now, but that’s okay; we can start a new yuri pairing. Tsundere two-faced woman with hyperactive girl? Awesome.

So Takasu takes a watch his mother left him to his grandparents, being told that “they would understand as soon as they see this”. Plan A: freeloading at Gramps’?

Yeah.. so what’s the last episode gonna be like? Ryuuji and Taiga come back to school, and they all live happily ever after? Ugh.

This episode was seriously WTF. After 23 episodes of nice pacing, suddenly the two main characters decide to elope and get married. But, well, that sounds just like a teenage mind.
