Toradora! 05

Ami is…. simply put, a total trainwreck of a bitch. She’s like… ugh. I don’t know. God. My vocab doesn’t include words harsh or fitting enough to describe her. A real dojikko/tennen person would NEVER EVER, repeat, NEVER EVER, boast about being one, much less EMPHASIZING IT AS IF IT’S HER SELLING POINT. I mean, it totally defeats the purpose of being one, isn’t it?

God, her TERRIBLE acting just left a foul taste on my palette. Heck, watching mike rail about Lelouch in the channel was less painful than watching her act all clumsy and airheaded (regulars in the channel will no doubt get what I mean). Thank god for Taiga’s slap, seriously. I was having a tremendous murderous intent myself at seeing her. A really well-deserved slap, if there was never any before.

Funnily enough, the episode was saved partially by the antics of Minorin, who just totally wins as a joke character as long as she’s not the main focus. Minorin RADAR was hilarious enough, but the punch sure came when Ryuuji asked her opinion of people who pretend airheaded when they’re not, totally made me choke with laughter, literally (since I was having a small snack at that time).

P.S. : I forgot to add that KitaEri kinda sounds… terribly flat with her rendition of Ami. If she’s doing that on purpose to catch the essence of her character and its role in the story, that’s quite impressive in some sort of ways, I guess. Elsewise….

    Well, Ami really -is- a bitch… so yeah, they got that part down right. Which of course is why Taiga gets… angry at her. And finds subtler ways to take revenge.

    Isn’t Ami pretty much putting a front ANYWAY, and that she’s really petty and arrogant?

    “Thank god for Taiga’s slap, seriously. I was having a tremendous murderous intent myself at seeing her.”

    Unfortunately, though, Ami was already in my kill list before she appeared in the anime.

    Although I don’t mind letting her live if my theory of even the smallest trace of Ryuuji+Ami exists.

    Must admit that an Ami x Ryuuji coupling is a lot more appealing than Ryuuji x Taiga after all the tsunderes we’re gone through, and physically as well. >_>

    I dunno, I kinda feel sorry for Ryuuji… an blockhead, a louise-level tsundere, and a two-faced superiority complex girl… not much of a choice in pairings he has.

    Much agreed on the RyuujiAmi part.

    Although for having to facing double b****es in his single life, I cry in my pity for him.

    Minorin-Radar is sort of like Gaydar, but… better.

    Ami seemed genuinely scared of Taiga when Taiga mentions she’ll follow her like a stalker, and Taiga notices this little inconsistency in her behavior. I think it’ll be interesting if Ami is faking TWO personalities and there’s a third one under those. Haven’t read the manga/light novel, which is the only reason I conjecture like this.
