Beat me on creating the topic. xD

Fall season starting, time to refill our "Currently Watching" sections!

The Queen of tsundere strikes back after the trainwreck that was ZnT3.
Taiga's voice is a bit harsher than Shana's and Louise's, I guess it's whole yakuza thing going on, gotta go hit the manga after this.

Better than I expected. Mostly just impressed with Kushieda's lines, her voice is exactly how I imagined it.

Wow I wasn't disappointed so far. :]

I like how Taiga's voice is a bit different from the other three. & I wanted her to say "Urusai, Urusai, Urusai" but "Urusai, Urusai" works too~

Pretty good I enjoyed it so far.

Some big names in this show: Rie Kugimiya and Yui Horie (<3 ).

Anyways hope this series turns out to be awesome.

Great first epi, there's a lot of alteration but the story still flows like in the manga. Taiga (Rie's voice here is kinda a Nagi & Louise hybrid XD) is deff much cuter here & Ryu mad-looks is much funnier too. Anyways, will rewatch again later w/ subs =3

Nice animation; plenty of movements. Though, I think Taiga's voice should be more like Kugimiya's other tsundere roles (Louise, Shana, Nagi, etc.). Anyway, I'm looking forward to the next episodes, and the OP.

Now to catch up with the manga scanlations...

It could be an interesting series, first episode was satisfying.

I agree to that, that's what I didn't like about the other three - they were too similar.

I agree. I was expecting her voice to be just like Louise but I'm glad it's not. Gave me quite a surprise. I like it better. Makes Taiga unique.

Very good episode. I think this show will be promising.

It was an alright episode even though i still find Taiga's character design look to similar to another well known character.


I also preferred the Manga version of Yasuko.

I think this will be like Hayate no Gotoku with some triangle.

I see absolutely no resemblance to HnG other than a tsundere female lead. And what triangle? HnG barely had any romance.

angel999 said:

LOL Ai saka aka Taiga is REALLY INTERESTING in personality...half romantic/half tomboyish.

Yeah... it's called tsundere.

angel999 said:
The school seems to know somethings about Ryuu and why he is scarier then he seems.

He's the son of a gangster not to mention he looks like him so he obviously gets people intimidated. He even mentioned it in the episode.

Overall, a good episode. I wanted to see the OP though. D:


I did not know exactly what was mean by Tsundere but as of now only cosplay made officially into the dictionary so thanks for the info.

I am just someone who find anime interesting.

Oh but there is a resemblance to HnG in terms comedy and settings are also somewhat familiar but I never said it was 100% similar just certain elements.

Even though Ryuu seems to be like you mentioned it is not his intention...did you not see that he returned the wallets to the lost and found?

Well the gg sub is out. It was good. A few things I would've worded differently but still a good sub.

Episode itself was great. I laughed a lot and Kugimiya Tsundere are awesome anyway. Taiga is cute, I'm looking forward to more.

I was thinking Toradora would be along the line of Shana or Zero no Tsukaima, but direction's actually much much better. Interesting start, veen if I can't find myself to like the characters yet.

This was really funny. A bit different than I expected, and really funny. The world doesn't need another Shana/Louise, but Aisaga is at least bearable.

i was a bit underwhelmed at start but the second half really kicked into gears. Not sold on the animation but certainly not terrible. Rie as Taiga is not bad. Music is ok so far.

Another violent tsundere. Jesus. I despised Louise and if Taiga doesn't calm down in the next few episodes, I'm dropping this.

Also, I really hope they don't keep overplaying the whole "Ryuuji is scary!" deal. The way the classmates had already begun to realize that he only looked scary is a positive sign on that note.

I never read the manga, but this anime has potential, if they do tone down the "Ryuuji is scary!" stuff. I seriously doubt they'll let Taiga calm down, given the popularity of psychotic "tsundere" these days.

It was slightly better then I imagined.
I don't really like how they made Midori look and Taigas eyes don't look right as well but that would be about everything negative I've found.

I still prefer the manga but I'll follow this with good excitement. :3

Wasn't sure that I was going to keep watching for those first few minutes, but it was quite amusing. Not a big tsundere fan, but an over-the-top one can be good for a laugh.

Taiga couldn't find her love letter to Takashi, and soon realized she mixed up her love letter in Ryuuji's school bag.

Meh. Doesn't look particularly excellent, but not bad either. Probably going to end up a 7/10 if it keeps up at this rate.

Wow, a loli chick who's an ungrateful bitch that constantly shouts "Urusai" HASN'T been done at all... Pretty goddamn innovative... >.<

I rewatched it and understood what happened. She ran into the locker to hide when someone opened the door[hence the tables flying] but fell out and then tried to take back the letter. Thanks.
