Reo is very cuteeeeeeee
That's funny, I thought the Palmtop Tiger was somebody else...
They don't just look alike. I'm amazed that the SonoHana people didn't get sued. (It's funny to picture Taiga's reaction... especially since Mai has kind of a Minori look to her.)
That was true :-D
But why Minori instead of Ryuuji?
Mai does have a few things in common with Ryuuji (homemaking, black hair, responsibility -- most of the time), but she's a lot more like Minori in personality and appearance, so I think that's who Taiga would think of first. "Oh, they look like me and Minorin. What are they going to -- AAAAAAAAAAAAAA!"
