A reminder that, in the anime, it was implied that Taiga and Ryuuji did fug.
...And on the PSP, the epilogue has her pregnant with triplets.

Ryuuji is the most fertile Toradora.
>>
>>100740942
How the fuck could she give birth to triplets? That's not something to brag about, she'd probably die.
>>
>>100741057
Actually, yeah, I was wondering about that, too. She's a small lady, so...Caesarean section? How much space in her body is taken up by her womb? Is it scaled down with the rest of her?

First thing 2D =/= 3D
Second thing, C-Sections exist
Third thing, in a first world nation it is rare for pregnancies to kill the mother or the child.
>>
>>100741422
3 kids would take up as much space as like, 60% of Tiaga's body.
>>
>>100738048
>>100741405
Kuronekofags are still mad, which I find hilarious.
>>
>>100741422
Well, yeah. I brought of the idea of a Caesarean section. It's just that I now can't imagine Taiga actually having ROOM for three fetuses in her body.

They'd take up more than the space of her tiny womb, wouldn't they?
>>
>>100741538
Not really, as the amount of children in the pregnancy goes up, the size of the kids go down.
Though I will grant you that triplets is absolutely ridiculous for a woman Taiga's size, it would be better as twins if they HAD to have multiple kids.
>>
>>100741635
>as the amount of children in the pregnancy goes up, the size of the kids go down
Oh, okay, then. If that's true, then I guess it'll be alright.

Those'll be some tiny babies, though...
>>
>>100741768
I have no actual scientific proof for that other than the fact that I notice that twins generally weigh less and are smaller than births with just one kid, so don't take my word for it since it's all anecdotal.

So I'm skipping through the files to see if they're ok. Get to pic related. My heart stops but I continue on. Then I get to a part where Kirino says

"Are you happy right now, aniki?
"Same as you"

"Kyousuke. It's ok. I think I'll be ok from now on."

I don't like where this is going. Yeah, I'm skipping but something about it tells me not to continue.

The best sibling romance anime was Koi Kaze. OreImo didn't even try to get you to like Kirino for the most part. It also had a harem which immediately reduces the actual romance aspect and turns it into a fantasy.

Anime series rarely have any good romance, only self insert fantasy for perverted nerds for the most part. I would suggest watching anime romance in movies but Steins;Gate has the best character chemistry I've seen.

Because Toradora and the Oreimo LNs actually have romantic build up, chemistry, dialog and exposition. Trying reading/watching before you lump them in with the kind of haremshit you're referring to.

I want to read them from the start, like buy the physical books and everything, but I just haven't gotten the chance yet. And last I checked there were still quite a few to be translated, and I know that I'll plow through them in a couple weeks, so waiting is probs better.
Side note: There was a time in my life though where all I did was sleep and watch Spice and Wolf, and be depressed because Holo wasn't real. Like, soul crushing depression. And I look back on that time with great fondness because, as a writer, it gave way to every story I've ever written being ten times better.
