* Highly unlikely. Kallmann Syndrome comes with a host of other developmental issues. Almost all sufferers have little to no sense of smell, and many others have little to no sense of hearing, a cleft lip, one kidney not developing, abnormalities with the teeth and eyes, scoliosis (twisted spine), poor balance and synkesis of the hands (one hand mirroring the movement of the other). All of these are issues with bodily development. Taiga, by contrast, has an exceptional sense of smell and perfectly normal hearing, with none of the associated abnormalities. Taiga is simply short with little breast development.

\n[[WMG: Taiga has Kallmann Syndrome]]

Taigaís small size, childlike appearance and flat chest at age 17 are probably from a medical condition known as hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, most likely Kallmann Syndrome. Patients with this condition have delayed or absent puberty and as a result donít get their growth spurts. Women with the condition often donít develop breasts or get their period.

\n[[WMG: By the end Yuusaku and Sumire are in a long distance relationship.]]

We know he's going to America and it seems highly unlikely that he's going for any reason other than chasing after Sumire, just like she said he would if he knew she loves him (which he does after her and Taiga's fight). But he didn't throw away everything like she feared, waiting until he graduated to go after her. Sounds like just the sort of deal she might have insisted on: "You can come join me but not until you graduate."

* Which goes to show that the Les shippers will snap at anything. You know, there's this thing called friendship, and it's not sexual.
** To be fair to the Les shippers, the BL and het shippers aren't much better in the "hearing wedding bells at the slightest interaction" department. For example: the Naruto fandom.

Added DiffLines:

* The manga, being told from Ryuuji's POV with thought bubbles, calls more attention to how cute he finds her. It's not just her personality. In Ryuuji's eyes, she's the whole package: pretty, shapely, and fun to be around. As with any measure of attractiveness, YMMV.


* The conversation in which Ryuuji admits his crush on Minori to his friends spells it out: Minori is the ''weird'' girl. Capital S-T-R-A-N-G-E. She's plenty attractive, but her personality fluctuates so much that she makes guys look at other girls.

* A bikini. Taiga expresses dissatisfaction with the local bathing suit selection and refuses to wear a children's suit. She may have asked Ami to look for a stylish and mature suit (possibly with built in padding) for her in Hawaii That she could wear on the Okinawa trip. And there is semi-official artwork showing Taiga in a bikini.

[[WMG: What was in the pouch Ami gave Taiga in episode 20? ]]
As far as I can tell the contents of the pouch Ami gave Taiga in episode 20 are never revealed. Here's what we do know.
* It was purchased in Hawaii, and presumably not readily available in Japan or at least not in the small town where they live.
* Taiga intended to take it on the trip to Okinawa.
* It is rather small, fitting in a pouch about the size of a pencil bag.
* It costs a moderate amount of money, enough to warrant paying back Ami, but not so much that Ami would ask for the money in advance.
So what could it be? Post you guesses below.

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG: Taiga is Haruhi Suzumiya. ]]
Haruhi has a fondness for a high school setting, but her interest in the supernatural is in decline, and she wants to get closer to Kyon. However, Kyon's too shy to make a move, and Haruhi is afraid he might turn her down, though she tells herself that he would of course, say yes. Also, she has become more cynical in regards to family life, and feels shunned and neglected by her parents. Lying in bed one night, she makes a wish that love was something that she could figure out, somehow. Wibbly wobbly, universe altering and BAM! Toradora! Other characters:
*Ryuji is Kyon.
*Kitamura is Koizumi.
*Kushieda is Asahina, completely inverted.
*Ami is Nagato, with more wisdom, bitterness, and free will.


** This is how I think of it: Minori was still struggling with her feelings. She knew for sure she was jealous of the idea of Taiga and Ryuuji pairing up, but (as she admitted to Ami) she wasn't exactly sure why. When you're a teenager and you think you might be gay, unless you come from an extremely open-minded background, it's going to be something that's hard to come to terms with. I almost thought her "admission" bordered on SureLetsGoWithThat: it was easier for her to explain away her behavior as being the result of unresolved feelings for Ryuuji rather than Taiga. The end result remains "you're both my friends, and maybe I do like one of you 'in that way,' but it doesn't matter, because [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy I want you to be happy with each other]]." The closet may be transparent, but it still exists. That's my tin-hatted theory to keep away the {{Wall Banger}}s anyway.
