Toradora! 07

Toradora!

The only thing smaller was for kids 12 and below.

You know, this season has somehow finally made me like back Kugyuu tsunderes with Taiga crossing into the threshold of “moe” fully. I just couldn’t resist how cute she was in this episode with all the worrying about her chest. Now all we need is a “symmetrical docking” fanart of her and Nagi together….

I find Ryuuji’s concern and care for Taiga quite a good and refreshing change from the usual dynamics of the main Kugyuu tsunderes and their male partners. Seeing Ryuuji make fake cleavage for Taiga after she showed him why she hated pool lessons just really made me go, “Ah. I would’ve done that for her too. It’s just so sad seeing her like that.” Toradora is really good at making the audience connect properly to the characters despite at how “messy” it all seems at first.

Toradora!

Taiga! With cleavage?! USODAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Taiga and Ami’s exchange of barbs continue to be highly entertaining to watch. Taiga and Ami really make a good foil out of each other.

    They’re getting too busty. The world needs more DFC (delicious flat chest).

    She. Looked. Just like Chiaki earlier on with that sweater. Scary.

    When you have a mom as hot as Yasuko, Ami’s antics in the dressing stall are ineffective.

    I do admit Ryuuji shoving that padding back in place had me laughing in tears.

    Thinking the same damn thing here. Ami may have a nice, nubile body… but Ryuuji has had to live with Yasuko for 17 years.

    Which Nagi? Well, either one will do…

    I believe they are detachable.

    I don’t like how Ryuuji does not look like he is madly in love with Minorin anymore, though :\

    Watching their sensei crack gave me Koyomi (Yomi) Mizuhara vibes… :D

    Also didn’t anyone tell Aisaka that “hinyuu ga status?”

    This episode just made me feel that Taiga and Ryuuji are more of siblings than just close friends. Awesome stuff! =D

    @albert_2mb
    yeah…the intensity of Ryuuji’s reaction to Minorin close proximity has toned down since episode 1.

    Was his insight to her personality while trapped in the storage shed a turn-off?
