Why the hate when Toradora sets up drama so well?
>>
Muh forced drama
>>
>toradora
>good
>>
Because the half of the drama comes about from contrived bullshit and the other half comes from the characters being retarded.

If you like really obvious emotional manipulation it's pretty good (looking at you madoka fans)
it also has the occasional good bit of writing, 'occasional' being the operating word.

Like this person is saying, these kids are dealing with their first romances in high school. It only makes sense there would be some issues as they work out their insecurities.

Bland MC? How interesting were you in high school to those around you, in all honesty? People only get more interesting when they're given a chance to develop as individuals with influence independent of their initial caregivers.

That is the ONLY thing you stated that pertains to his personality.
Everything else is either a physical attribute of his or of his home which isn't even his fucking home but his mother.

Yes I wasn't that interesting hence why I didn't have a harem of bitches.
This is why this drama is full blown retarded as the MC isn't interesting enough to gain the attention of all that.

Ryuuji cares for Taiga.
He's the male housewife people want.
He's tall.
He's snarky
He's thoughtful.
He isn't an asshole.
He'll make your meals when you're sick, unlike some people.
Just because he doesn't go wahaha and talk like Noriko Wakamoto doesn't mean he's bland.

Boy, mature men will take care of you. More importantly. It plays into that bullshit white knight coming to save us from the witch's castle and disney bullshit we get fed all through our childhood.

We're set up to want men who will provide for us. Men are raised to care for us. Ryuuji will make sure the bills are taken care of, entertain us, and be our man-whore. What's not to like?

It's sad that Ryuuji does not know his own attractiveness.

Her immaturity really got on my nerves. I know that she was basically still a child who needed to reconcile with her parents. But it was taken to such an extreme with her complete dependence on Ryuuji, general childishness and vapid personality that I just couldn't like her.

In fact, that's probably why I didn't like any of the characters except for possibly Ryuuji and Ami. They might be slightly more complex than they appear on the surface, but they spend most of the show taking their archetypes to the extreme until it just became obnoxious.

No, he's too active for that. A real beta is passive and just sits around, only consuming (just like us, browsing /a/ and maybe even watching anime), Ryuuji takes too much care of others.
>>
>>100658743
I never understand you people, its like you didn't even watch the show. EVERY CHARACTER in Toradora! was a pile of shit (entertaining as they were) when they first started out. A huge point of the goddamn show was for them to realize they need to grow the fuck up and change.
Arguing "x character is bad because" and using their start out traits is stupid, because what makes any character good is how they developed and ended, and Taiga (even if only because she and Ryuuji were the mian) changed more than fucking anybody in the cast, thats half of what made her a good character.

>her complete dependence on Ryuuji
I dont think Ryuuji growing up doing everything for his mom while she go home late every night and sleep most of the day.
When Yasuko said in the flashback that she would be a superb mom for young Ryuuji, it's safe to assume that she had her fair share of hardship.
It could have been worse, she could have been abusive or neglected him.
