Toradora: The Dragon

The only thing on the same level as a tiger is a dragon. I will become a dragon! And stay by Taiga's side.

As I've said before, Toradora! is not to be mistaken for those cliche shoujo series. (It belongs more in the slice-of-life genre.) It may seem kind of cheesy for Ryuuji to have said these lines to Taiga, but he actually formed that resolve with no romantic intentions. He had his heart set to love another girl, and Taiga's eyes didn't just sparkle and well up with shoujo tears in gratitude. She gave Ryuuji a solid kick to the back and yelled at him to learn his place. It may also be worth noting that those shoujo bubbles that conveniently show up at mushy scenes were nowhere to be found.

I've had you on my watch list for some time now, but I had no idea you had Toradora! in your gallery, this is great :D
I only recently watched the anime and started reading the manga, and I agree completely with your comments on the anime.

After reading the comment down under the photo I really am going to have to read ToraDora. So funny, I mean I've liked the look of it when I've seen it advertised in my manga books but I need to complete collecting GunSlinger Girl before I can buy anything else.
