Aggreed?

I am so glad I am learning Japanese.

Learning such words as Kuruma and their kanji 車 which if I add one more becomes 車庫。

I LOVE JAPANESE! lol

I should make a thread for it.

yeah. have to admit, ryuji comes across as a bit too afraid of Taiga like during the

I was kinda expecting a more.....Kyon type of character..... perhaps he is, and that the english script needs to be tweaked to reflected that....not so sure. need more clarity on him.

people like kyon and the male leads from clannad and kanon rarely comes up nowadays[ its mostly weak boys getting surrounded by girls this time around ].

but it seems ryuji isnt the type to be weak, but i find it rather strange that he is showing an image to the audience as someone who nonchalantly accepts domestic abuse.

Don't expect. He's no Kyon or even close. Just a hard working guy who acts like a maiden-in-love around his crush.

That's because you are thinking about Harem protagonists. Those protagonists are almost always the "wimpy" type that shows bravery at the last minute.

Toradora isn't a harem, so Ryuji not being weak isn't an abnormal thing. There are a good number of romance-comedy (not harem) series that have strong protagonists.


I have no idea how much you guys have read, so I have no idea what would be a spoiler to you guys. Oh well...

What're you talking about? Why don't you volunteer to help edit since you're so free?

Ryuji is miles behind Kyon, I'll give you that. While he tries not to cross Taiga, he doesn't do it completely out of fear, more like out of an urge to keep things calm. And he certainly doesn't put up with all the bullshit she may occasionally pull, this is where his "Kyon-like" monologues come in.

I'm a total sucker for these cliched "boy and girl who don't notice each other until the moment of truth when they realize they actually like each other" type stories. Keep up the good work, people! I'm looking forward to the rest of volume 1.

They make an interesting pair. For some reason, Taiga reminds me of Haruhi even more than of Louise.

The way she broke down was kinda pitiful.

Still, revelation: there's this nice guy (no, he's not a dog, Louise) next to her all the time after all!

Chapter 5 was wonderful. Taiga and Ryuji really are meant for each other. Really looking forward to the next chapter. Hopefully it wont be a complete reset where they are back to being a pain to each other.

Most manga and light novel authors can't seem to handle that very well though.

I know it's a bit boring that once the couple gets together = the end. But if you read those shoujo where they continue after that...

It's usually like, "new guy/gal, romantic tensions," "stupid misunderstanding, more tensions," "the nice person since before the get-together suffers from the idiot ball and becomes a jerk, even more tensions," or even "SHE'S GOT AMNESIA (+ CAR ACCIDENT), EVEN MORE GODDAMN TENSIONS!" and I get sick of it really, really fast.
