Well it is personal opinion wasn't it? I am sure some people would think that a Chihuahua is a rat, and stick by it.

Actually it is how perception works, though I acknowledge that Taiga is beyond loli in her age, she looks like one, plus she is so cute that I would prefer to refer to her as loli than petite.

Taiga ranks no. 10 in Newtype poll. And ToraDora! has just started. =)

So fast!
Well, I can't say I wasn't expecting it. Tsunderes have always been popular, regardless of the anime.

Personally I was a bit dissapointed with anime version Taiga. I expected her to be more...Yakuza-like. I mean, everyone is afraid of her for some reason right?

But her being in love with someone other than the male protagonist is a good thing for a change. It's not like Shana and Yuuji or Louise and Saito. Ryuuji is truly a dog for her, a good friend at most.

I haven't read the novels. Please don't tell me she falls for him later.

There's all different kinds of "fall for" ..... one of the compelling parts is watching them figure out what kind it'll end up being.

It would be great to see them together though, they would truly make a cute couple.

Top 10? That's pretty speedy popularity!

Taiga>Ami>Minorin

Aisaka Taiga is seen wielding a wooden sword in the opening, maybe she will be swinging it around later in the anime.

If you've forgotten, she swung it around in the first episode. XD

Does anyone find that Taiga looks a fair bit like Chall Acoustica from the Gundam 00P sidestory manga?

To be truthful ToraDora! hasn't just started.

Toradora already had a solid fanbase before the anime started so it is not that surprising as it may look to you from the first look. After all Toradora novels are popular in Japan.

I'm not a regular poster, but I've been following some of the discussions..

Personally, I like Taiga best of all the girls.. To me, she really epitomizes a lot of humanity - that failure to properly convey messages across at times, that very thick layer of indifference hiding a real gem of a character inside.

I like her confessions.. And after Ep8, I find myself rooting for Taiga+Ryuuji.

Every character emphasizes certain parts of humanity in general, not just Taiga.

I love how Taiga's eyes are actually upturned moe-eyes - they're straight and thicker at the top and round at the bottom. It's not commonly seen in anime nowadays and I relish the effect they're having on Taiga's character and appearance.

And I'm so glad Taiga's able to step out of the shadows of Louise and Shana in terms of voice acting. Kugimiya Rie does a great job here, giving her a grittier, lower and more rebellious quality to her usual (awesome) tsundere portrayals. It really nuances up her character quite a bit.

Seems like she's starting to understand why she's she close to Ryuuji and why she trusts him so much.

During the couch scene, you could see that she was questioning her relationships with Ryuuji and Kitamaru and it seems like she's starting to realise that she might have feelings for the dragon boy(no nervousness while being close to each other, the 'foot rubbing/massage', having second thoughts about the dream).

Yeah. But I would REALLY REALLY hope for that Taiga X Ryuuji wouldn't end up together. I like how they are right now. Even though she has feelings for Ryuuji , she has to consider his feelings for Minori.

To be honest....they're acting like a married couple already, so I don't think much would change between them

It goes the other way too - Love is a two-way street, it's no use that Ryuuji feels for Minori but that Minori currently has no intentions of returning those feelings.

You know, just like how Taiga has feelings for Kitamura while Kitamura no longer feels romantically towards Taiga.

Well, you never know. Kitamura liked Taiga before and confessed to her. It's possible that he still has feelings for Taiga.

Spring_sakura111, we all know whom he has feelings most right now, and she most definitely is not Taiga...
