Re: Ryuuji & his cell phone -- Do we know for sure that he was carrying it at the time? Not everyone carries their cell phone with them 24/7, you know.

I think now it's the appropriate time to quote what I said two weeks ago…

Well, hopefully the discussions, the arguments, and whatnot will go to where they belong—especially those manga/novel spoilers that were getting slightly out of hand.

About the cellphones, it’s strange in a sense, because I wouldn’t have noticed it in the first place if they didn’t go to the great lengths of letting us know that they actually own a one... if you know what i mean...

I find myself somewhat in the same boat - I'm rooting for Minorin, though I know I'm not "supposed" to. Some of that, I admit, comes from my relative appreciation for the two voice actresses - I adore Horie Yui, and I'm just hearing Louise and Shana from Taiga - to me they're all indentical.

Why you aren't "supposed" to root for Minorin?
Minorin >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> the parrot >>>>>> Taiga.

Taiga is worse than the parrot? Damn, that's harsh.

Because I think it's very obvious even to a non- Toradora manga reader (which I am, thus no spoiler tags) that Taiga is supposed to be the destined pairing. A beauty & the beast variation, more like "Beast & the Beast". I would dearly love to be surprised, though I certainly don't expect that to happen.

I see, and in this case, Taiga would be "the beast"...

It isn't so harsh when you're talking about a bird as cool as Inko.

Tell that was sarcasm. I can't see how a bird like Inko-chan can be cool.

For me, Inko is totally unnecessary so far in the story. He's not even really funny, except for the first time I saw him, which elicited a WTFLOL but that was all.

To me, Inko's role is very clearly defined. I see him as an indication of Ryuuji's personality. To see that Ryuuji dotes on a bird that nearly everyone would avoid is to understand how he can come to be friends with a girl who nearly everyone at school avoids. To me, Ryuuji's feelings for Inko are a reflection of his growing feelings for Taiga.

I don't think he's funny, I think he's ridiculous, but I laugh at it too.

I think you are correct. Even if it is a novel / anime comparison it would be better to take this discussion to the Novel thread. Will move the recent posts there.
