I can’t believe it, I actually had to pause the episode, run out of the room, and get tissues. The only other anime that actually got me to do this was Air, and that was a looooong time ago.
I remember the good old days, when I was 12 and falling in love with gundam seed (not your average fangirl, I know). Liking a series was so easy back then. Now, I’ll like series, but I won’t go into a fangirling frenzy that easily.
Then I watched the second episode of Tora Dora.
The first time I watched the first episode, I stopped it after the drunk mother showed up, thinking that I wouldn’t like it. Later, at the recommendations of a friend (that’s you, Alice-hime!) and half the blogosphere, I watched the entire first episode and thought it was okay.
But the second episode had me squealing. Actually squealing. It was just SO CUTE! Ever since Zero no tsukaima I’ve had this thing against tsunderes who are physically abusive, but for some reason the chemistry between Taiga and Ryuugi was fantastic and very refreshing.
P.S. : Kitamura reminds me of every single eroge lead I’ve ever seen… for some odd reason…
