The art is good. The character designs are all fantastic, and I'm amazed by how much detail the animators give each character to give them their personality. The movements are very fresh and crisp, making the characters seem as lively as they should be. The anime showcases some lively and upbeat songs as well, and while it's nothing unique, it can be quite catchy.
The characters are the main focus of the show. We are given their personalities and some basic background, and the show works from there. We never find out anything 'deep' about them, but in a light-hearted comedy like this, that's justified. All the characters all have one (or two) strange quirks to them that makes them unique from everyone else, and it seems as if every reaction they show is based on this quirk.
This anime is quite enjoyable if you're looking for something to rest your mind on from all the stress of your day. It's refreshing to watch, and it seems to give you the illusion that there's no such thing as real-life problems (unless you think a co-worker hitting you all the time because you're a guy is a plausible thing to worry about). If you enjoy shows that make you feel less stressed and helps you forget about everyday problems, then you will enjoy this. For example, if you liked anime like Azumanga Daioh and Minami-ke, you will enjoy this. read more

In my opinion, what made this anime really splendid is the characters. They all have their faults, but it's just too difficult to hate any of them. For example, Kawashima Ami is shown to have such a deceitful personality, and she likes to interfere. If she were your classmate in real life, she'd be the 'bitch'. However, in Toradora, watching her peel off her layers and realize why she does these things makes you actually sympathize, if not like her. And, just like Kawashima, there always comes a time where you will sympathize with all the other main characters and love them, if you didn't already.
The interactions between the characters are what makes this anime enjoyable. Dramatic and comedic scenes are just as enjoyable, and nothing was overdone. All in all, I think people who will enjoy this show will be people who are looking for a light-hearted slice-of-life anime with just the right balance of comedy and drama. read more

I thought the art was really good, and the character designs suited all of them nicely. The characters were also well done, especially the way that they conversed with each other. It gets even more interesting when Masao is introduced in chapter two, because he adds to the silliness of everything.
I also enjoyed it a lot because of the pacing, which seemed realistic because of the plot itself. It wasn't rushed, even if there were only three chapters. So, I think it's only tiny flaw is the predictable plot, but everything else was awesome. That's why I'm giving it a 9. If you think you'll enjoy a manga that has an equal amount of sweetness and silliness, then you'll probably enjoy this. read more
