Manga Crush #1:Tora Igarashi

Manga crush is a weekly meme hosted here,at Daydreaming Bookworm where you rant about the manga character on whom you have recently developed a crush.For more info on the meme,click here .

For my first manga crush,the character I'll be ranting about is Tora Igarashi from Kaichou wa Maid-sama!.Now those who are already familiar with this manga and have viewed my previous My Book Boyfriend  post,I know what you're thinking.Why am I using this same character again?It is because I'm totally head over heels in love with him.Oh and by the way,I only used his appearance in the other meme,which totally doesn't count. :p
So,on to the meme.Here's some info on the manga.
 Title: Kaichou wa Maid-sama!
 Year of release: 2005
 Status: Ongoing
 Author: Fujiwara Hiro
 Artist:  Fujiwara Hiro
 Genre: Comedy, Drama,Romance,Shoujo
 Blurb: Seika High School, once an all-boys school notorious for its wild students and for generally being a terrifying place for girls, has recently become a co-ed school. With the female population still a minority and living in fear of the over-the-top antics of the males, Misaki Ayuzawa takes it into her own hands to reform the school and allow the girls to feel safe in the rough environment. Training, studying, and even becoming the first female student council president of the school, Misaki has gained a reputation among the male students body as an uptight, boy-hating dictator and as a shining hope for the teachers and fellow female students. However, despite her tough-as-nails appearance, she secretly works part-time at a maid cafĂ© in order to support her family. Unfortunately, her hard-earned reputation is threatened when the popular, attractive, and somewhat impassive Takumi Usui takes an interest in her after discovering her in a maid uniform after school.

Now,off to the ranting.;)

Tora Igarashi is the student council president of Miyabigaoka High School.He has a very complicated personality. He initially appears as a gentleman who marvels at Misaki and the changes she has brought to Seika High, offering her a chance to come to Miyabigaoka with an exceptional loan. He is quickly revealed to be a lecherous young man who has become bored with the women surrounding him, who are easily submissive because of his wealth. He enjoys causing drama around him and he thinks that money can buy anything. He convinces people usually with a fake smile. Tora's only real smile is his evil one. He says he never has the time to drool over girls. But he only has place in his heart for Misaki. However, there is another scary, womanizing side to him , which was revealed to Misaki when she went to refuse the offer to join Miyabigoaka. Although she develops a hatred for him with this, but he just becomes more interested than ever in her. He felt (being the heir of the immensely wealthy family) that, Misaki was different from the other girls, whom he could get with money.

So obviously you can see why I like him.He is a bad boy,the type your parents would freak out if they find you dating.Though it still helps that he's charming and rich as well. ;)

He also appears to have unusual fangs,which makes him all the more hot. =D
Now here are some pictures of him which had me drooling:

So who's your manga crush this week?Hurry up and let me know! ;)


  1. You really do have something for insane bad boys, don't you? Coincidence, I was just grating off my love Usui Takumi at my fb account. Guess, I have a post to do. Off now! I agree about the fangs. Also, I adored the fact that he cared for the vice-president, he had seemed so much more human and crushable then.

    1. You're right about the insane bad boys part.:D
      It happens all the time.Warner from Shatter Me,Jake from Halo,Sebastian from Mortal Instruments,and the list goes on and on... ;)

  2. Ah! This is a really cool meme ^^
    I will be participating next week!
    Love your crush choice >(.o.)>

  3. The blogger is not letting me reply :(
    AW don't say Halo! The book was like virgin mary sue's attempt to preach Christianity and abstinence with a weak, anti-feminist lead. I don't think I ever got to the part where Jack enters. This is one of those book I gave up on.
    BTW I did my post, it was since most of my praises for Usui were mostly sighs and googly eyes.

    1. Hehehe!
      "virgin mary sue's attempt to preach Christianity and abstinence with a weak, anti-feminist lead."
      Honestly girl,you've got a really good sense of humor.By the way,I didn't like halo that much either but the sequel was better,since it was all about Jake holding Bethany captive in hell.Or maybe it wasn't,I just made it better in my mind by altering the scenes a bit and making it more intense. ;)

  4. I love the title of this meme! I don't read Manga, or else I would participate. But I look forward to seeing more posts like these because I love crushing on fiction characters.

  5. I like Rin Okumura from Blue Exorcist so much <3 He is a devil yet handsome. Haha!

  6. I love Kaichou wa Maid-sama!! And I'm sssooo in love with Usui!! In fact, I featured him in my first manga crush post! (
    I kinda like Igarashi. I'm not crazy about him or anything, but I liked how he helped Misaki.
    Great meme, btw! :)

  7. Bad boys are the best... ^^
    If he weren't in love with Misaki-hime and I didn't LOVE their pairing; my manga crush would probably be Usui-pyon... But I just love their pairing too much~! >////<
    I'd definitely go for Tora-teme though... He's conniving, manipulative, has an evil smile and fangs. He's the freakin' epitome of a sexy-assed bad boy! Also, nice meme and AWESOME choice of pictures... I've always loved that Womanizer one...
