ya seem to be missing the whole point to tae. kurono's always been for t&a, but he's been changing. the point is that he loves her, and doesn't care about whether she has huge tits or not. it's the point that he finally sees a girl for more than physical. i think she was a great charicter, and i'm pretty sure that she'll be back. i think that was the point of killing so many important charicters, they'll probably come back. least a few.
a person may live for honor, but a warrior would die for it.
