Well this series has reached a semi-half way point, and after just finishing the beach villa episode arc I figured now would be a great time to bring up this topic. First Iâ€™d like to say that mid-way impression of this show. I find it to be very fun. It uses a personality for Taiga which isnâ€™t exactly unique to the series, yet by combing it with the love pentagon theyâ€™ve got going, it’s quite interesting. Its not a matter of two people liking the same person, there are many levels to this, starting out liking one, and moving to another and I will explore that here.
WHICH GIRL IS THE BEST
There are obviously three girls for Ryuji to end up with, now which one is the best girl for him? Which is the best girl despite not fitting with him? And who will become a yuri coupleâ€¦ In-depth look at the girls after the jump:
Taiga: Of course Taiga, the main character. At first she really showed no interest in Ryuji. She was only interested in Kitamura. Even being close to Ryuji was for the sake of getting a better relationship with Kitamura. However there have been many things to show her changing feelings. At the end of the last episode she seemed to kind of have a look of wanting to be with him when it wasnâ€™t needed. And there was a time where they sat so close together even when they werenâ€™t in the cramped apartment. Plus one of the biggest events Taiga explaining Ryuji is hers and caring deeply for him when he almost drowned. Although after the event she went all tsundere and said it wasnâ€™t for serious reason, thatâ€™s obviously a lie.
Minori: Minori is a very fun character. While I find her personality and character very fun, at the start she didnâ€™t really seem to fit Ryuji. I couldnâ€™t really picture her with him. However I was stunned by how serious things became between them at the beach house. The serious talk Minori had about not being able to see or believe in love and Ryuji kind of saying he wanted to show it to her really struck as important. Confiding in each other like that really seemed to make the connection more real between them.
Ami: Definitely, form what Iâ€™ve seen, a fan favorite. Ami has actually really surprised me. When she was first introduced I disliked her, the whole lying about who she was kind of irked me. However these two episodes of the beach villa arc kind of made me change my mind. Her talk about how Ryuji wasnâ€™t fit for Minori kind of had a point. I did seem to realize that the two of them, Ryuji and Ami, are somewhat fit together. She seems to confide her complex personal emotions in him, and while although teasing a lot, is honest in many ways.
So the question still remains, who is best fitted for Ryuji, who is the best, are they the same? Taiga has the huge advantage of effectively being the main character. While she started out not interested in him, showing those feelings changing could be powerful for the series. Minori of course has the advantage of being who Ryuji as admitted to himself as liking, and admitting to oneself who they like, for the guy, isnâ€™t common in most anime. However Ami seems to be apart from that and connects with Ryuji directly. Really, they all have good reasons about why they might end up with him or who is best.
I wonâ€™t make any judgments here, but leave it up to you to decide. Iâ€™ve changed the poll (finally) to include this subject, so post your comments and leave your vote.
