Toradora: The Tiger's Tears

Why doesn't anybody understand?
Really... everyone...

What do they mean by Palmtop Tiger?
How could they think I wouldn't mind at all?
Why won't they listen to me?
No one! No one...

After taking out her rage and frustration on the empty classroom, Taiga falls to her knees, as if weighed down by the heavy feeling in her heart. The violent storm of her anger is soon blown away, but only to be replaced by doldrums of incredible sadness.

:pointr: Continued here:

So easily do people hastily pass judgment to those whom they don't understand, often to the ones they perceive as threats. They force their false assumptions onto the other person without bothering to find out what they're truly like, and fail to consider how much that person may actually be hurting.

I kind of wish you could see just a little bit of her face like an eye peering out of the dark shadows of her face.

Normally I'm very shy of commenting your work because I find myself in awe of all your brilliant skills at costume making, artwork, and putting photoshoots together and get scared I'll write something stupid (I have a habit of doing that ^^;), but I have to say I love this photograph :)

It really depicts how someone who is unfairly judged by others and treated without respect because like you said people assume because others look a certain way or have something different about them that they have to treat them that way.

Plus this subject is very personal for me because I have Aspergers (a form of Autism) and look really young for my age and because of this most people who talk to me in real life have a bad habit of speaking to me like I'm 3 years old and speak to me in a loud voice as well like somehow my Autism makes me unable to hear properly, so I sort of know how other people might feel when they go through something similar.

Anyway, enough of my rambling and clogging up your inbox ^^; Faving this for the sheer brilliance of it 8-)

Love the composition of this. Those battered old desk-chairs give this scene a lot of meaning. :heart:

Toradora is one of my favorite series right now. This is a perfect live representation of the character and this scene. Not only that, but the photography and light are wonderful.
