Well I wouldn't say 'best', but love him or hate him, he definitely stands out of the crowd male characters personality-wise for this season.

I think instead of saying Toori himself stands out because personally I don't think he's much different than some characters we've had in the past, pervert character with serious depths however you want to describe it. I think the thing that makes him seem to stand out is that despite his character, the other characters play off him really well. Like at the confession meeting in episode 2.

That's why I said 'for this season', whether or not he'll be remembered for months to come remains to be seen. That would be base on his actions rather than his personality I think.

...But mostly it has to do with whether the series is a success or not

He's a Gentleman, Scholar, and Shameless Pervert all at the same time making him one of a kind if you ask me.

Can we even classify him has a harem lead?

After all he's only really in love with one girl.

As long as more than two girls are interested in him, even if its not returned, he's a harem lead.

And I agree, this is how someone does an IdiotType Harem Lead, not like Ichika and all those before him!

I rephrase: IdiotType in a non-gag anime.

Define 'Afraid', as in "I've got an allergic reaction" kind of afraid, or "I can't hit them" kind of afraid, or "Nothing fazes me" ?

The smile. Enough said.

This is why we shouldn't fault any of the people who have bad initial impression. Most people really just watched it and don't really do any research. I convinced quite a number of people to watch the series since I basically tell them I would enjoy this series even if everyone hates it and is definitely not fanservice based (I'm 100% honest about this). Most of them would come back and tell me Episode 1 is "watchable", and they would stick around for a couple more and see if the series go anywhere (which is my goal anyway, just have them give this a chance and not to dismiss this immediately as just trashy fanservice). After Episode 2 air they all just went this is pretty decent, which is great because I get more people to discuss the series with .
I always have a beef toward people who jump into one show without doing a little bit of research. I don't mind if they know nothing, then after watching, they do their own research about what they just watched instead of asking question that has already answered multiple times in the same thread.
Admittedly, all of my questions are answered by you at the beginning of this thread, but I couldn't find anything related at that time.

Did I mention in this thread that I would go gay for Aoi Toori? If not, let me. Because I totally would. Thus far the only guy, fictional or non-fictional, that I would do that for :3

Episode 02

Well I'm rather late (no thanks to my isp) but something in episode 02 really made me holler:

Ahem anyways, ouch, I really cringed when Masazumi mentioned she lost her... assets. Now before you guys go off labeling me as a pervert (oh big surprise), I've never been a big fan of girls losing something they...had. Er what I mean to say is I barely got halfway through last season's Manyuu Hikenchou, and it was for the same reason: I just can't begin to imagine what that must feel like

But, episode's come in halves, or... well I'm glad to see more Makiko-sensei (can't get enough of her) and seriously, the second half was hilarious, Neito I know I love your hair but..... No-Bra? That I got to feel see The fact Kimi-chan led her on makes me a bigger Kimi-fan XD

Oh yes the plot.... color me interested, since they do have quite a large cast to gather in proportion to the interesting things they have going for this story. I'm sticking around for more

does he even have a harem? the only girl she is interested is indeed only one plus in character map there isn't really a love arrow throwing at him. So I can't think of him as a harem lead at all.

That's what I've been trying to say... After all he may be a pervert but even perverts can fall in love.

I'm not sure but it looks like one. I got a copy up until part 2 of vol 3 and that picture hasn't been shown yet in the colored illustration but the logo on the lower right is the same as the novel
