Despite Ryuji Takasu's gentle personality, his eyes make him look like an intimidating delinquent. Class rearrangements on his second high school year put him together with his best friend, Yusaku Kitamura, and his hidden crush, Minori Kushieda. Along with these two comes Kushieda's best friend, Taiga Aisaka. Her delicate appearance contrasts with her brutal personality. Secretly in love with Kitamura, Taiga agrees to help Ryuji with his love interest as long as he helps her get closer to hers.

Writing a critical review of 'Toradora'? I must have a death wish.... Strap yourselves in this is going to be a bumpy ride, but hopefully I'll be able to provide enough examples that my readers will at least think I'm giving my honest opinion even if they disagree.


In a romance story, the romance needs to believable in order for the story to succeed. Shocking, I know. Frankly, the romance between our two main characters Taiga and Ryuuji is not believable. The original set-up where they're only interacting because they hope the other can help them win the heart of their respective crushes works fine. But read more

Romance has always been a tricky, unforgiving genre; you make one mistake and the story slowly begins to crumble. Why is that? Well, as many of us may know, love is a complicated business. So is entertainment. So why do we watch romantic series? There's many different answers that vary based on the individual. Maybe we're simply taking a chance at trying to find a feeling. A feeling of the tingle of our heartstrings, or a stir in our human emotions. It's good to feel these things from time to time. Fortunately for us, Toradora is a series that gracefully grants us this chance. It read more

This's the first time I got the "4 seasons" feeling while watching an entire anime show.

What's "4 seasons" feeling I talking about? here's the explaination:

I feel 4 times of sensation changed while watch this anime:

1st times: at episode 1 to 2, at the first time watching those episode I thought this series will be just a light comedy anime which will makes me chuckle without complicated story. It just like Spring season that give a high hopes on the early year.

2nd times: at episode 3 to 14, I'm getting a bit bored and almost dropped it, but I decided to push my self to finish read more

I don't usually watch the romantic comedy genre of things. I always enjoyed action, fantasy, adventure like Soul Eater, Cowboy Bebop, Trigun etc. but for some reason I was in the mood for something different.

Toradora is just the 3rd romcom anime series i watched and I can truly say that it has become my FAVORITE anime.

The short version of this review is: I very much enjoyed Toradora

-The characters are all unique, likable, and relatable due to the fact they all display their weak sides sometimes and moments of insecurity behind the personality exterior. The chemistry between the characters was fun to watch

-The story stays read more

These two anime are completely different in plot but in characters you can definitely see a similarity... The main characters Ryuji and Taiga have a very interesting relationship.. one of a master and her dog (like Louise and Saito)...
In both anime the characters share a close relationship in which the chibi fearsome female dominates the male...very interesting to watch..
(both females have the same voice actor as well..)

Both Lovely Complex and Toradora involve a girl and boy who act harshly to each other but then end up becoming friends and helping each other try to get together with their love interests. Eventually, the main characters began to develop romantic feelings for each other...
I adore both of these series'. <3

Romantic comedy about a group of friends with different backgrounds, relationships and problems as they experience and solve it together. Both have unique characters that keeps you interested and entertained. 
reportRecommended by togeyanagi
Both are very similar.
Have the same synchro and the same character - qualities.
Synchro~ Kugimiya Rie - Taiga - Shana
In these animes is about love.
The anime also has what funny, the comedy is there, too. 
reportRecommended by Foxygirl05
Ookami-san started to develop into something meaningful other than a plotless comedy over a few episodes. That development focused on romantic struggle of the main couple. Toradora development is pretty much the same, started of funny and increasingly dramatic over time. 
reportRecommended by lapisdragon
Both are brilliant slice of life high school romcom dramas. It's mainly consisting of comedy (well done comedy) but every so often turn serious and dramatic - pulling heart strings. These can be from issues concerning love or family etc. Both are great watches if you are into romcom high school dramas.
