Touma also likes Bunny Girls and Maids... Or was it waitresses?

But Touma is not immune to "getting the wrong idea", as seen with everything he does with Mikoto and the recent (translated) part where he though Itsuwa and Index were CLOSE friends because she wanted to go with him (to save Index).

This is kinda ironic; we have never seen any girl from his school that have an outright crush on him- Himegami is kinda debatable let alone that un-capturable senior girl...

Maid/waitress was Motoharu I think... but yeah, Touma does like bunny girls as well now that you mention it, I had forgotten about that

Ituswa and Index, fair point.

Come to think of it, isn't Ichika aware of Cecilia's feelings for him? Touma at least isn't at that level yet?

what? when did Ichika got aware of feelings of girls? Ichika of all people or MC male lead. It's like unlimited facepalm works.

Depends on what you mean by 'aware', could you be abit more specific ? Because technically we can say that Touma is 'aware' of Index's feelings because she sort of did annouce them to him at the end of the first vol...

Though it also depends on how you interpret 'daisuki'...

Well Touma knows Index has feelings for him aftet that confession, but he thinks those feelings belongs to the "other Touma", before losing his memories.

Every time I hear Touma's name I remember a song perfect for him http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noCBBuytc8o
I started to like him after much thinking and realizing that I have no reason to dislike him , the other day in the picture's thread I was just in bad mood and was looking for an argument it seems.

No matter how you look at it, the song that's perfect for Touma, and by extension the other two guys, has to be DOA's "Eiyuu".

OK let's say that the perfect non-japanese song is the one I posted and the perfect japanese song is yours 'cuz I can't understand japanese at all and the lyrics does not make any exceptions and of course the name of my song is not perfect for him 'cuz he's not that suspicious since he's the MC
Edit: lol too much perfect songs , I quit the race

Considering Kamijou Touma is Japanese, I would think it's more appropriate to use a Japanese song

And come on! How can you beat lyrics like these->

Whatcha gonna do if you're scared of some guy?
If you're content to just keep your footing
You'll never get anywhere

If you're a real man, become strong for someone
Clench your teeth, fight till the end
Don't be afraid to fall, and when you do, just rise once more
If you can do just that
You are a hero

Sounds better in Japanese though I admit.

I can't take japanese lyrics seriously for some reason. Except this one. Imagine fast paced punching

I've been wondering... Does the incident with the Saint Peter's Cross counts for an example that Kamijou Touma doesn't do what's right, but only what he thinks is right- I mean, he practically prevented World Peace. At the same time, just to save one girl- he had stopped Fiamma from saving the world from global warming.

What do you all think?

But no seriously, I had been wondering whether we'll see a situation where Touma would choose to save one person at the cost of the Greater Good, and without realizing it- such scenario had already played out.

He just made the decision process look easy

To be honest, I'd be really interesting to see Touma's ideals get twisted as time goes on, to the point where Accelerator and Hamazura go "What the hell, hero?" Not that he would make a drastic Face Heel Turn or even be "evil", but that his own ideals get in the way of a greater good, which the other two guys can clearly see.

I swear, if Touma stays a fucking "Static Character" throughout New Testament... I want to like Touma, but I can't like a Protagonist that has had no character development over 20+ Volumes. What he is missing is depth, which Hamazura and Accelerator (ESPECIALLY him) don't lack.

Well it might be planned. It's not like Kamachi doesn't know how to develop a character.
