Let's see....I'm listening to Uchouten Kazoku's ED song right now and enjoying the hell out of it. As for anime today, a lot of slow episodes today....like Railgun S and Gatchaman Crowds.

I thought Minorin was so annoying and she just basically allowed Taiga to have Ryuuji without putting up a fight. Coward. She had funny moments though aside from her randomness.

I lean more towards the former. I think the haters just encourage the likers to talk it up more than they otherwise would.


Just want to check

was I the only one who came away from the series thinking Minorin was a lesbian?





how did that even happen? lol, and i think so.


Maybe it was just me, but as the series got closer to the end I felt there were subtleties in the voice acting and animation that made me think Minorin was as much in love with Taiga as Ryuji was and she knew she couldn't say anything so she cheered the two of them on as they got closer, even though it was hurting her.


always kind of wondered if that was just me reading too much into things.

Edit: You know what...eating can wait this topic is too good.
Toradora...my theory for why people are so obsessed about this is that people are drawn to either certain beautiful moments or extremely epic moments. They get so overwhelmed by those moments that they forget the majority of the show was rather lackluster and basic. Don't get me wrong, those certain moments were indeed amazing and i was in a bit of funk when it ended but that quickly subsided after a while. It's just when people say it's the greatest romance ever i kinda scratch my head confused. I have to come up with a name for people like this eventually but it's the same thing with Sunday Without God. Had "good" moments in the beginning...(well, i didn't think so, I found it quite rushed and forced) but I do get a chuckle however when people start to say "This show is all over the place" or "What is really the point now". I just hate when people are all over 1 scene and thinks that defines an anime. Anyway, just my opinion...TO EACH HIS OWN.


that's kinda the exact same thing i feel about one piece haha

Let's see. . . I was watching episode 8 of Silver Spoon earlier today; when the incident with the milk happened and Hachiken was the only one making a big deal out of it, I found myself thinking "This isn't the first time this sort of thing happened and it won't be the last time. You're not the first person to do something like this and you won't be the last." I've had people say those words to me in the past, so I was really surprised to find myself almost saying them to someone else, especially since that someone is a fictional character.

Toradora just clicks. Probably the tsunderedness of Taiga?


I'm only 14 episodes into Toradora, but for me, Ryujii is what makes the show go. Thus far, the way he has (mostly) selflessly helped Taiga and it's pretty beautiful/touching to watch. And that's also why I think Taiga and Ryujii should end up together.

Minorin~ haha the way Taiga said it was so cute, ill give her that!
And about School Days one thing that makes me laugh is how everyone loves to complain about Makoto but always fail to mention...


How about Anohana? I never knew what people saw so amazing about it.

So hyouka... sup chrome

What is this amazing shit I keep hearing? I don't see it. Let's step back how much of kyoani's stuff is actually good. I would not include contracts given to kyoani for animation purposes but more original stuff.

I do not dislike Taiga. I see Toradora's elements in other animes that have tied things up at the end.


Forgive me if I misunderstand, but did you not think that Toradora tied things up at the end?

Toradora had some rather amazing points in it, the side characters were never useless and the male characters even got their own Arcs, it wasn't just some "Harem Romance" where the guy dates each girl and picks one. Oh no, the Guy and Girl pick, they picked wrong, they take some time to think it over, and BAMN, they repick they picks. It's obvious from episode 1 what's going to happen. But the Journey there was done damn well. Like DUDE, your best friend wasn't useless accessory, he was freaking important. The side-chick? Important. The mid-season introduction girl? Important.

What I want to see is someone list of an anime like this one, only that I'm not in the middle of watching.



Forget your rape and love triangle anime!

I need more of that! MORE OF THIS



and a little



Yeah, It's rather obvious what it is to those who've seen it sure, but this show's out there man. That casual romance with little to no sexual tension? Yes please. It's a nice break from the norm. That said Studio Whitefox is known for it's great stories sure, but if you classify this as a Shounen prepared to be disappointed! It's like they knew they couldn't do action very well, so they didn't. OR it's too directly translated from the Visual Novels, which explains the talking quite easily.

The show has some wild moments tho, of which I didn't spoil, just casual conversations held in the most romantic of positions.
