After a week off Toradora is back! All around a pretty good episode with some comedy but mostly a large amount of character development as we do a post-op on the culture festival. I’m a day or two late…but who cares right? I had to get this entry in before the football playoff games that start later this afternoon!
A nose full of finger that early in the morning? I love these two.
Touching Taiga in exchange for your happiness seems like a rather dangerous method to follow. It’s like having a genie bottle on the other side of a bunch of spike traps. There’s a chance you might make it and get your wish, but your probably just going to sustain massive injuries. See the picture below…
Yeah, like this idiot
One of the things I like about this show is the lack of your stereotypical “fall in love at first sight” harem setups. If Ryuuji is going to attract the attentions of the three primary females in this show in the end, it’s a long term project. We are already 14 episodes in and we are still developing the relations between Ryuuji and Ami, Taiga, and Minori in that regard. I’d say Ami’s is probably the furthest along, as she continues to try and attract his attention but fails because he doesn’t really care.
Where is this picture dammit?!
I’m guessing Yu-Gi-Oh?
I still find her character difficult to read. Maybe she liked the picture because it showed close friendship with someone who wants to help her best friend or maybe she’s got a new tingling for Ryuuji. I certainly don’t know at this point, but like I said before it’s interesting to watch it develop.
Ami-chan blushing? Hohoho, that’s pretty moe right there. Ah, it’s always delicious when they’ve been aloof for so long and they finally bring out the dere. She’s getting all rabu rabu for the only guy out there who doesn’t think of her as a mature adult. He realizes that she has a kid side to her, which is perfectly reasonable for someone in high school. Too bad we aren’t going to get an Ami x Ryuuji end.
Ah, love is aflutter and she doesn’t want to go back home! And it is true she has made real friends, and I’m not talking about the stupid Maruo girls either. Out of all of the characters she has definitely developed the most, becoming more comfortable around her close friends with her real personality. And even that personality has normalized somewhat, getting rid of a lot of it’s toxicity but leaving enough for amusing fights between her and Taiga.
