The main guy of this show?

I'm looking forward to him realizing Minch's feelings and ending up with her.
Which might not happen.
But Minch reminds me of Hiromi, so yeah... Anyways, not bad.

For some odd reason, I actually think Tooru will end up falling for Ohana in the end. Idk, I just really feel that way.

Minko will probably move on from him, realizing in the way that what she actually feels for him is appreciation/respect.

Why do I think that Tooru will go for Ohana?

1. Because hes always the one to start conversations with her, tease her, generally, he just takes the initiative.

2. For Minko...how can I say it? He looks at her as some sort of kouhai/student. I still haven't seen him have a normal conversation with her or tease her as hes done with Ohana.

Anyway, just shoot me/ignore me if this doesn't happen somewhere down the road. xD;;

I have the same premonition. There's just a big difference in the way Tohru treats Minko and Ohana, and it bothers me.

Spoiler for ep 5:


That bothers me.

I actually think TooruxOhana is better than TooruxMinko. xD;;

But then again...idk...Ohanas friend Ko is holding a flag for her. But so far Ohana hasn't really shown much interest in him, even though he already confessed his undying love for her. She's still within the "he's my friend, he's just that. Thinking of him as more than that is kind of odd" zone.

As for her relationship with Tooru, its kind of like the typical "Ok, listen here. You annoy me, tease me and shizz. But slowly and surely, you're making your way into my heart and probably maybe, perhaps somewhere down the road I will start to have different feelings towards you, Ill be confused and then arrive at the conclusion that maybe, just maybe I might be in love with you and you might be in love with me".

Yah....xD;;

Anyway, the more I watch Tooru and Ohana interact, the more I'm convinced that they'll end up in some sort of relationship, even if it is one-sided crushes.

I mean, Ohana is desperate to get into the good graces of the girls, but she has no problems cultivating a hostile relationship with Tooru, hence, she isn't afraid to snap at him, which has another relationship dynamic than she has with the rest of the cast.

I think that that frankness might attract Tooru on some level, and would be kind of karmic ("Hey, that girl you've been teasing since she got here? Surprise! You now have a crush on her, good luck!" - Tooru's heart, Tooru's brain, of course, will have trouble coping with such a notion).

The more I watch Ohana and Tohru interact, the more I have to conclude that there's going to end up being something between them. The problem is that I can't see which one of them is going to develop feelings for the other first. Ohana is so direct and honest that even if she did like him, I can't imagine her making any kind of move on him because of Minko. She's just too loyal for that. As for Tohru, he treats Minko like a child, and Ohana's no older than she is, so I can't imagine he'd be interested in a high school girl that way.

Of course there's plenty of time to change my perception of either character, and something could happen to shift the dynamic, but as things are 5 episodes in, either developing feelings for the other would seem awkward.

Other than that, it was good to finally see a soft(er) side to him.

Should I be spelling it Tooru? I've seen both, and I think phonetically they're the same, but I wonder if there's a correct spelling handed down from on high yet.

I enjoy watching the interactions between Tohru and Ohana so far. Probably one of the most entertaining for me. The van scene in ep2, Ohana's school skirt "adjustment" in ep4, and then the nose-pinching this week. Also Ohana always saying that she doesn't really like him gives me some kind of feeling.

Looking forward to where Tohru's heading in the story.

Actually, I dont know if any of you noticed but....

In the scene when Ohana and Tooru talk:

He's standing behind her for a few seconds while she's typing away on her cellphone, only after a few seconds of standing does he tell her to move.

I kind of take it like a "what should I say to her after she did all that for me?" moment....or I could just be reading too much into it? xD;;;

I was skeptical until this week, but I definitely start to see it now. The way Tohru treats Ohana reminds me of the way a 10 year-old boy treats his crush - juvenile barbs, the nose-grabbing, etc. It might be his way of declaring interest.

I've been checkin out Pixiv for fanarts of Tooru.

So far out of the 9 there are, 5 of them are TooruxOhana, 1 of Minchi dreaming of Tooru and Ren-san in a yaoi situation, another on of Tooru murdered by Minchi, one of him and Yuina and the last one of different Tooru angles.

I think you guys are reading into it too much.

If this was some kind of absurd dating-sim, it might have been true. If you apply some Keima-logic it might be true. But really, I really hope it isn't true, because it would be so unnatural to act in such a way to show you like someone.

For now I just take what he's saying at face value. He and Tomoe are the big jokers of the cast, while the rest are there for the dramaaaa.

Agreed. I think Tooru treats Ohana the way he does is because unlike Minko, she gets indignant and frustrated, (whereas Minko will take any insult from him). So naturally, it's more fun to pick on her. The nose-pinching at the end was probably his way of showing he accepts her, because he pinched Minko's nose when she first joined the kitchen staff.

i don't really expect a triangle with Tooru. If there is one, it'll be just a misunderstanding. i'm sticking with my theory that everyone in the show will end up with who they're supposed to.

Marathoned what's out so far, and I have to say, I am really like Tohru/Tooru X Ohana. Moreso than Kou X Ohana. Their interactions are really funny and lively, Tooru just to me looks at Minko as his apprentice and coworker. I think something will come up between Tooru and Ohana in the future. At least, I hope.
You gotta know that in anime those two that are always bickering have to end up together.

Rule of romance/shipping pairs in any entertainment medium: The more the two characters bitch about each other at the start, the more likely they will end up together by the end.

....^ Well said. Its a pretty basic rule in the anime/manga/dorama world. Just saying.

But anyway. Moving on to discuss about Tooru. xD

He's 23 right? So does that mean he barely finished College? Or wait...do you even need to go to college to become a professional cook in Japan? o.O

Ive been pretty curious about him ever since I saw him in the first ep. My eyes gauged out and went: OMG, hes just my type!

Im a huge sucker for anime guys with his looks and with the type of air that says: "I act mean and inconsiderate, but deep down I actually am concerned with things that have to do with you and your well-being. I'll help you from the shadows and mask my intentions by making them seem as if though I'm only making fun of you."

So much for that after the last episode, eh?
