Editorial Reviews

The high school festival has ended and the odds for both Ryuji and Taiga to get their crushes to notice them seem to have diminished. Their last attempts will come at the Christmas Eve party, but neither of their hears seem to be in it anymore. The party comes and goes, with the truth finally coming to light through the most unlikely means. Taiga and Ryuji's friends, who have been by their side this whole time, will make the greatest sacrifice of all to grant their wishes. Join Ryuji and Taiga, the dragon and the tiger, as they learn what love, family, and friendship truly mean!

I'm far from the teenage Japanese girl for whom this series is intended, but I'll try to explain why this high school romance is outstanding in its class.

Ryuji is so domestic, he loves cooking and even cleaning, but his eyes are as tough as Clint Eastwood's, and he intimidates his classmates. He lives next to cute little Taiga, who has such a fierce personality, she's known as the `palmtop tiger'. But when each realizes that the other has a crush on their respective best friends, they form an odd alliance. Ryuji is after Kushieda, sweet and perky, a girl always on the go, while Taiga adores Kitamura, a student council member who exudes having it all together. The early episodes are average and the soundtrack, bubblegum pop. However with the entrance of Kawashima, a beautiful teen model who is adorable to her fans but nasty to her rivals, the show finds its groove. She sets her ambitions on Ryuji and completes this love pentangle.

The characters are surprisingly nuanced. All of them mature during the series, and thread the line between love, pride, friendship, and envy while sometimes supporting each other in nonobvious ways. After Kawashima has been ugly to Taiga, it's Taiga who unwittingly helps Kawashima deal with a stalker. Kawashima realizes she owes a debt, and while the two continue spatting, an uneasy friendship develops. Taiga is even meaner than Kawashima, particularly towards Ryuji, but he doesn't use anger to tame the tiger. He builds trust. The series is not about the characters transforming as much as finding acceptance as they are.

Not all circumstances are resolved without heartbreak, and the characters make some courageous decisions. While all three women have something to offer Ryuji, ultimately he must open the door and reveal his choice.
