What on earth was her master plan?
>"I'll create my happiness by my own hands!"
>"After I have pushed the guy I like and who clearly likes me back and my best friend together."
>"Oh shit, I didn't think this through."
she can end up with Ami.
there problem solved.
here's how it went down. Ami tricked her into thinking that taiga likes ryuji so she would have a chance to get to ryuji. That failed and cause a whole fucking 2 season chain reaction which led to the ending.
Ami had some pretty good character development. That, and she was way more intelligent than Minori.
People who don't pay attention hate Ami because she comes off as a cunt a lot of the time but she's being real with people.
>genki girl loses for the 100th time
Minori's route in the VN is way better than the anime. If only the anime had gone with that instead of having a predictable ending you could see from episode 1.
I agree. The very fucking beginning of episode 1 gave it away.
>you'll never have a tsundere girl just appear in your life randomly
>you'll never take care of her and end up as lovers
just let me die tbch familijo
Some dude I used to be involved with obsesses over Toradora and Taiga.
Too bad if he finds someone like her he'll just end up neglecting her.
Ok hold up you faggots. Im going to delve deep and explain why Ami is the best girl out of the 3. Firstly, Taiga is the worst girl. She's entirely reliant on others for her own selfish reasons, making unreasonable demands and treating people especially ryuji like a maid. She only fell for ryuji because she realised that she's useless without him, a ala the epiphany during christmas. Furthermore, her personality is so revolting and unappealing. She only likes things she cannot have. Firstly evident with kitamura, she only developed a crush on him after he got over her. And secondly with crying out ryuji only when he decided to go and confess to minori. Minori in the next post.
>I believe in ghosts, even though I've never seen one before and get this. I don't believe in anyone of the people that have said they seen one before. It's kind of like how I think about the concept of love. Like I believe one day I'll fall in love, get married and live happily ever after, even though I've never actually fallen in love with anyone yet. You see what I'm saying? For some people falling in love is like second nature, but I can't even relate to that. So if I've never fallen in love before is it real? And that makes me wonder if ghost are real. I haven't seen one yet so maybe they're not.
That sounded deep and allegoric to her relationship.
Minori best girl.
Minori is love.
Minori is life.
You think she is dumb, yet look beyond that superficiality feat, Minori is smart in her own way.
I would just like to remind you all that JC Staff fucked up the Toradora anime adaptation (as they usually do with light novel adaptations).
You know how at the end, the entire plot goes full retard and they spend an entire fucking YEAR separated and nothing changes? Yeah, that was only a month long in the original novels. JC Staff decided to go full retard.
Lastly its Kawashima motherfucking Ami. Admittedly Ami does have her flaws, such as being pretentious and fake but despite that she tries to overcome it after meeting ryuji who shows her that she's beautiful inside without hiding in a shell of pseudo perfection. She starts to warm up to her friends and sees ryuji in a different way. She yearns to be with him and starts to appreciate his warmly and down to earth demeanor and tries to initiate anything to be more than friends but ryuji always thinks she's joking. Even at the very end nearing christmas she tries one last time to make him look the other way but she's rebuffed. I can already picture her crying alone at christmas thinking what could have been.
For all her faults I still think she deserved better.
I still don't get how you ended up cleaning her house
because he wanted to become the prez so that the ex-prez would be proud of him and so he could confess properly
I dropped the series when it was confirmed taiga was going to win. It was the 2nd to last episode. Seriously, violent tsunderes never deserve to win.
And the animation of the scene of her fight with the class president was downright cancerous. Whoever was in charge of that should be run out of the industry for how poorly it was done.
No id rather have ami
Its normal anon
It makes me glad to see everyone agree that Taiga is the worst. Fuck Japan and their shit taste.
Milf should have won.
>I dropped the series when it was confirmed taiga was going to win. It was the 2nd to last episode.
You mean first episode? Even if you don't watch/read many romances, you have to be a huge retard not to see that coming from the intro. Or shit, even the premise of the show.
don't lie, look at this cute little fucker
I'm giving up Taiga as best girl when they give me a canon kuroneko ending for Oreimo
She laughs and becomes hyper the more nervous she is. This is how Ryuji and her met, she thought he was a delinquent and he thought she was being really friendly even though she was scared shitless of what she thought was someone dangerous.
>tfw cried bitch tears when I saw this scene and realized I will never experience a love so pure
absolutely shit tastes.
i got your back niggas
>Am I the only one who likes all of them?
na. I do like all 3, and most of the background girls too.
I just have a clear favourite in Amy, and it only becomes more crystal the more times I rewatch. I didn't even like her much the first time.
same, I'm with you brother
it's shit, literally the only thing this picture could've been good for
more like love curated slowly through stockholm syndrome
/a/ oh /a/ sorry for shitposting and saying that this place has turned into a shithole. You guys do have good taste. I love you all
>lewd girl, kind of a cunt, blue hair
Bitch may have a point at times, but if you have to be a cunt to get your point across you're not worth my time
>genki girl, borderline chuuni at times, doesn't know what the fuck she wants
This is annoying as fuck irl, speaking from experience, pass.
>short, flat, rude as fuck, show cute when she lets her guard down
I am attracted to this, but again, if you have to be a cunt to me, we're gonna have a bad time
God dammit why does she have to be my mom? Milf is best girl
She could've aimed for both things. The baseball goal was tacked on at the very end and had no bearing on what she talked about with Ryuji at the summer house. At that point, she hadn't yet realized Taiga was in love with Ryuji, she only did when Ami asked her if she was feeling guilty much later on.
>She could've aimed for both things
She didn't have the confidence she could, though. You say it was "tacked on at the end," but that was the reason why she worked like crazy all the time and constantly felt the need to push herself. She thought that a boyfriend would derail her focus.
That's part of what she meant when she talked about the "things she can see" with Ami.
Well yeah she explicitly states that she was trying to take responsibility for Taiga being too emotionally dependent by helping her along. Her trying to get Taiga and Ryuuji was her attempt at self sacrifice, because she was confident that if she made Ryuuji pick between the two, he'd pick Minori over Taiga. She says as much when she admits that she was patronizing Taiga too much and should have respected her enough to consider that Ryuuki might just love her more.
honestly i'll take anyone at this point.
let's stop being sad
i'm getting sad too
Minori lost any good will she built up when she pouted and acted like a big baby during the christmas arc, and then later after rejecting Ryuuji tried to go along as if nothing had happened.
>and then later after rejecting Ryuuji tried to go along as if nothing had happened.
This is what hurt Ryuuji the most, I don't remember how well the anime handled it but he was mad and sad as fuck during the sky trip arc in the novels.
wait, there are people that unironically believed that in a show where the premise is, two people try to help each other out to be able to go out with their best friends, that they wouldn't actually themselves be the ones to hook up together? The show is named toradora for crying out loud.
If they were static THAT much of the time, the show would be pointless.
Taiga does genuinely start opening up a lot in the second half and even fights for Ryuji's sake.
Meanwhile Minori shits herself because everybody sees she's a manipulative liar with no substance.
>genki girl loses for the 100th time
Tsunderes are way more easy to understand, animate and relate (supposedly the majority says), Why do you keep waiting for exceptional good anime?
Don't you already know we are in hell?
Why are we still talking about this shit show? It was shit in 2009 and it is shit now. The only good aspects were porn doujins and occasionally well-written banter.
>selfish, bitchy infant who depends on everyone and guilt trips Minori to reject her one true love because she knows taiga is literally not capable of being alive without him
>a bit tsun
Too bad she wasn't the main heroine and the VN was as a whole bad.
Well congratulations, you got NTR'd, now what's the next step in your master plan?
>not watching the anime until the Christmas climax episode and then playing the VN for your favourite girl's route
Why do I love this show so much? It seems like it should be a mediocre romantic comedy at all levels yet after all these years I still feel things every time I rewatch it.
Why won't Ami win this time ;_;
>Living next door
>making Ryuji a faggot who likes being abused
He was that way before the series began
>letting Minori saw her crying on Christmas
She didn't want that to happen though
Anime romcoms are, as a rule, completely forgettable and stillborn by necessity, albeit sometimes fun to watch anyway. Toradora is an exception in that it is legitimately good, thus is stands out more.
>Minroi~n didn't cry like a bitch.
Have we watched the same anime?
I honestly don't know if this was a good romance or not. I think the whole thing was ruined for me because I already knew Taiga and Ryuji were getting together, but it was probably going to be pretty obvious anyway.
It's just a mediocre show to me, I kinda wish I had liked it more. Also Taiga is best girl, Minori was just irritating in every scene she was in with her fake retard bullshit, Ami was at least a bit more interesting.
Ryuuji fucked Minori when Taiga left. It's canon.
For a few years now, I've been planning to watch Toradora right before Christmas, as I've been told it's a good Christmas watch.
This year I won't fail! One week to go to start watching the greatest love story ever told.
She was too busy being the best girl to settle down with Ryuji. She had go be best somewhere else.
Meanwhile Ami was busy being worst girl and had to spend the whole time realizing how terrible she really was.
>Taiga isn't a loli though
neither is this technically, but lets be realistic about body types anon
>I don't know, I just can't
>Everytime i see a picture related to something I watched and enjoyed I just can't fap to it
I experience the same. For example, I just can't fap to Kill la Kill girls. I just feel too much sympathy for them and their struggle.
or take oreimo for example, I can't fap to any of those many doujins,it does nothing for me after watching it
She began dating Kyousuke, so she had already won, but then, because she wanted Kirino to confess her feelings for Kyousuke, she decide to break up with him so he can be console by his sister, she even encouraged Kirino to confess her love.
Pretty much this >>134774552
I'm all for Minorin sacrificing her own happiness for her best friend's sake, but not Neko breaking up just so that he can play Cletus and fuck his sister. Fuck this shit.
The worst thing is that she didn't give up with Kyousuke. I still don't understand what she was thinking and that's why I dislike her.
On the other hand, Minori didn't want to harm Ryuuji or Taiga and she had feelings for both of them. She knew one of them would end up suffering so she ultimately decided to be that one.
Minori is a true bros over hoes kinda girl.
Taiga is her best friend and she's not gonna compete with her over a boy.
She didn't want Taiga pushing her towards Ryuji especially when she knows how she felt about him. If Minori was gonna get with someone it would be because she took those steps, not someone else setting her up.
It was still frustrating for her to do a 180 personality change 2/3rds of the way through the show, especially when she didn't even really seem interested in Ryuji until after she had already given up.
Ami was arguably a lot more invested in him but still managed to lose without needing to completely break down. I don't exactly hate Minori but she was definitely my least favorite in the second half.
This is like tumblr tier fantasy bullshit.
>Minorin plays baseball and is a bit of tomboy
>OMG SHE'S TOTALLY BI
Fuck off. It was never implied. Take your sick fucked up degenerate fetishes outta here.
She literally said to Ryuuji that perhaps she likes girls.
It was supposed to be a joke, but she is a double face, so it could easliy be true. There is another moment near the end but this was the more obvious one.
