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.
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.
