I've watched three episodes and I think it's one of the better anime this season, so far. While we've all seen the male protagonists who look scary but are actually nice before, the chemistry he has with Taiga really makes for some excellent, endearing comedy, adding a welcome extra dimension. Through their interaction the vulnerabilities and fears of both characters are brought out, and it's satisfying to see how they deal with their exposed weaknesses.

The story jumps around, the pacing is off, and the male lead is just a nice guy, no potential for drama or comedy. So the author gave him a scary face, which is pretty far fetched, and the anime mercifully only uses it a little in ep1 (I'm at ep4) which leaves...nothing. Totally boring character.

The female lead is just a stereotype, but very well executed. Tsundere fanservice. I'll keep watching to hear her voice, 'cause the series as a whole doesn't feel round.

it's like zero no tsukaima, nice guy and a flat, whinny, little girl. they've even got Rie Kugimiya playing Aisaka. I'm pretty much just skimming over this series.

It's not too bad. I've been getting good laughs from it so I can't complain.

I finished episode four, and I like what I've seen. It's not a master piece, but I find Taiga endearing, and it's good to see that she actually has a genuine friendship with Ryouji, as opposed to the slave/master relationship in Zero no Tsukaima between the leads. Not a whole lot is happening, but I'm content to see a show without any serious drama - a light-hearted, friendship and romance comedy suits me fine.

yeah the relationship between Taiga and Ryuji is good, as corny as the dragon tiger thing is, its a fun relationship to follow... i just hope they actually do pair up rather than do a school rumble thing...

Taiga was pretty damn creepy with her photos in episode 4.
