A Tsundere Poem, in Honor of Valentine’s Day

Hey folks!

‘Tis a very busy time for your’s truly, thanks to tax season being here. However, it is also the time for love, or so they say, with Valentine’s Day rapidly coming upon us. So, in honor of that day (and maybe because I’d gotten so far behind, my queued up reserve of reviews of ran out 😉 ), I thought I’d share a little tsundere love (or rather, a couple of tsundere poems as memes) I came across on the Internet, featuring a favorite tsundere character named Taiga from the excellent anime series, Toradora! (Well, excellent light novel, since there’s where it started. And the manga adaptation is awesome as well.)

Ha!ha! This makes me want to pull my Toradora! DVDs off the shelf and marathon them.

    Hah! That’s so funny in English how could the Japanese beat it? Bilingual poetry? Her expressions are great.

      Heh! Have you seen or read Toradora!?

      • WMC says:

        I remember the first two volumes but none since. Hafta look.

          I don’t own the light novels (doubt I would unless I knew Japanese honorifics were going to be used). The manga adaptation has been slow to piddle out.

            Looked through the first two volumes of the manga again. Very funny. In any dictionary under the word “tsundere” there would appear a picture of Taiga.

            I keep noticing the apparently serious fear of ghosts within Japanese school children in their stories. Is this a manifestation of their reverence for nature spirits or kami? Much different from American kids, who don’t believe in ghosts.

            Well, Japanese culture goes back way longer than American culture, so we don’t have that same level of stories being passed down for hundreds of years as they do.
