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..)

From episode one it was easy to tell who SHOULD REALLY be going out, even though they both try to go for other boyfriend/girlfriends (in each show), also making me having to cover my mouth in laughter so I wont wake up people and just about falling over from the hilariousness (is that even a word?) of it.

Toradora and Sakurasou involve a guy reluctantly taking responsibility for a female classmate that he lives near, but the girl in Sakurasou is a softly-spoken autistic artist, not a troubled tsundere. Sakurasou has a very similar tone to Toradora, and the characters fill comparable but not identical roles. Though Sakurasou initially tries to present itself as a fanservice anime, its real themes are of aspiration, self-expectation, and unreciprocated feelings.

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.

[Spoiler Warning] Both animes have similar stories, like the fact that the two main characters start with a friendship, but at the end of the anime declare themselves to each other in a loving relationship. In Chuunibyou, the characters derive their characteristics because of another person, as Rikka, who decided to change her way of being because of Yuuta, the Dark Flame Master. In Toradora, the characters seem to show feelings for friends of their friends at the beginning of the anime. But throughout history, they realize that actually liked each other.

Many romcoms share similar likenesses, so I could probably list others that match up decently like Chuunibyou, Golden Time, and even Yahari Ore no Seishun and such which others have listed. But I found these two to be similar because of the MC's dynamic/forced relationship with a main girl while the MC's crush is a different person. Both also have typical things like "beach" episodes, romantic tension that occurs during scenes of the MC and female protagonist (though Nisekoi has a bit more romantic tension in its scenes). Both are also comedies and have tsundere leads. The difference is that Nisekoi turns into a harem fairly quickly  read more

Yui reminds me of Minori from Toradora and I feel OreGairu has got a lot of inspiration from that series with the lead male as well (though he not only looks delinquent, he pretty much is).

Most of the ToraDora! staff returns to make AnoHana. With a similar comedic yet melancholic feel to every episode and the effect of seeing noticeably alike character designs, you can't go too far into either series without noticing that the other shares analogous characteristics. ToraDora! is for those who prefer realistic and well-paced drama while AnoHana holds true for the opposite.

If you watched Clannad you have to watch Toradora. They are very similar story-wise and the characters are sort of similar too. I would say Toradora had more entertainment while maintaining the I-love-her-and-she-loves-me-yet-other-girls-like-him-too sort of atmosphere. Yeah it'll most likely help you get out of the sadden state if you watched Clannad.

The main romance plot is very similar between them. They may not share the same main plot (Music and Slice of Life/School) but secondary characteristics may apply. The alternance between comedy and drama is really similar, while the romance feels really heartwarming. There are a lot of similar events at the end of both, talking about them would be spoiling, but who liked one will probably like the other.

Ririchiyo and Taiga (the main female characters) are petite tsundere from wealthy families, with deeper reasons to behave the way they do, instead of just your typical tsundere traits for moe purposes.

Both anime focus on a young girl who has family troubles and are unskilled at getting along with others.

Toradora goes over similar events that happen in Tsuki ga Kirei. If you haven't watched Toradora for what ever reason and are looking for a romance similarly satisfying, Toradora is a good one to check out. If you watched Toradora and have been searching for an anime that is like it for quite some time, I really suggest Tsuki ga Kirei.

Both are romantic comedies with similar setups (guy crushes unrequitedly on girl, guy gets help from another girl, guy also helps one of these girls with her own unrequited crush, guy eventually grows to care for the girl helping him, etc) that will tug on your heartstrings. For those who are not fans of the ecchi shows, don't let the ecchi genre tag for Video Girl Ai scare you off. The ecchi moments in this six-episode OVA are far and few between, and of a more mild variety than the more blatant stuff you see nowadays. VGA came out in 1992, after all.

Both Toradora and Hayate no Gotoku (HnG) are similar because both of them are slice of life, romance, and also include school life. In my opinion, HnG is better than Toradora because it has more comedy and action. HnG is full of parodies, and sort of like a harem, and there's a lot of comedy. I recommend HnG for any age but it's not as romantic as Toradora (kisses on the cheek couple times, which is basically it).

Toradora! and Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora look similar to me, first of all because of the art style. Then, because one of the main characters falls in love with the other one without him/her noticing it. After this, the one who falls in love acts giving him/her all to have the other person. Toradora! is way better (to my eyes) because it's also kinda comedy-ish and has humour through it, but Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora it's more like a drama through it all but, in the end, all that matters is the love the main characters feel for each other.

Toradora and FB are somewhat only superficially similar, dude meets girls, life entanglement and stuff blooms from thereon. However, the two are usually acclaimed in their handling of the themes they use. Toradora is a love story going into what people truly wish for, FB being a supernatural tale about the consequences of peternormal abilities. Both using their premise to go deep into such with vivid character development and awesome perspective of understanding the reality.

i don't often enjoy romance animes, but Miss Kobayahsi's Dragon Maid (especially the second season) was an exception. Both Toradora! and MKDM contained action and fight scenes which are my most liked preference in any show/movie. MKDM also had one of the best quality on animation I've seen in anime, which automatically made it even better for me to watch and enjoy.

both little girls in both series are like a demon in the body of a little girl. both little girls are explosive dynamite. although they are both different genre, what got in common is the feared highly volatile little girl. in both series very action are packed with intense battle one in actual battlefield the other is domestic violence respectively. if little girls did not strike you fear before, maybe you will think twice after watching either show.

These two anime series have the same plot, if you like one of them you will like the other. Two people who like each other, but are not saying anything to each other.

If you ask me what i'm impress about Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo? I can tell you without a doubt "the ideal romance" so i recommend Toradora because this anime is one of my ideal romance. Have fun (>.<)/

Toradora! and Amagi Brilliant Park are both lighthearted anime with quite a bit of funny comedy. Toradora! gets a bit more serious later on, but the atmosphere and comedy is very similar between the two. The main characters of both anime, Ryuuji and Taiga in Toradora! and Kanye and Sento in Amagi Brilliant Park, have a similar dynamic as well. Check them both out!

I think these are some of the best Romance anime you can find, 3D Kanojo is very focused on romance, and has a great development of the characters through the episodes. Toradora also has a great development of the characters, romance is a main focus and it's well made. Toradora has more comedy than 3D Kanojo. In my opinion, both are amazing.

Only similarities is that they are both romance and both have 2 weird individuals that like each other, other than that there are none, problem with nazo no kanojo x is that there is absolutely ZERO anime you can compare it to as it's just so odd, but it is amazing, the characters and visuals, everything about this anime holds up even to today's standards

Akira Koizumi and Taiga Aisaka are characters cut from the same cloth. Both are short persons, live alone in a huge penthouse, have a rich yet broken family, resort to violent retribution and abrasive speech. Basically two S-tier tsunderes. The relation to both male MCs is a little less similar, but both stories fall into the range of high school romance with complex love polygon and rivals. While Toradora! oftentimes is pretty serious for a comedy and void of ecchi, Iketeru Futari in those aspect is the complete opposite. Both ecchi comedy tropes and scenes are up to eleven in it, and the plot doesn't  read more

While these anime are largely different in genre, setting, themes, and most other measurable quantities, they share one major similarity- the source of their humor. In both shows, the humor is derived from each of main cast of characters being either dicks or dumbasses to each together throughout the show. It is these seemingly mean spirited or even cruel interactions that provide the humorous surface of what are (mostly) very genuine friendships.

Both are great love stories and both focus a lot on personal growth. Some of the side characters are similar but the story itself isn`t. But I believe if you liked one, you will like other.

Both protagonists do not have a "profile" as a romcom protagonist. They also have an inferiority complex in relation to the other characters in the cast.

Both ths shows are rom-coms, slice of life based shows and both have great endings. Plus they both have great soundtracks , story, animations and characterizations. You'll enjoy both of 'em and may love both of 'em as well.

Is this what you really want? The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Toradora both have the similarities of one lying to themselves when it comes to one other. Without going into too much detail the protagonists Makoto and Taiga are both in the same both when it comes to the view of Chiaki and Ryuuji respectively, only using a superficial level of communication to express their thoughts to. Both are good romance anime about the things you really value and how one goes about it.

The premise of "OsaMake" reminds me about the wonderful show that is "Toradora!", despite it lacking the "tsundere" aspect. Both series try to present the idea of having something "fake," and progressively developing it, turning into something that is considered as "real." In simple words, a relationship that was supposed to be platonic was instead transformed into one that might consider as special due to some unexpected circumstances.

Karakai Jouzo no Takagi-san Karakai Jouzo no Takagi-san is a masterpiece. I watched it before Toradora and was the second anime that made me happy in a tough moment. It's also about a slice of life but with a focus on two kids growing up. There are friendship, provocations, and mind games. Everything is so sweet. If you liked Toradora, this other anime is an almost sure recommendation.

Dishonest. Toradora and A Whisker Away both follow dishonest individuals when it comes to their feelings with their supposed love interest. Toradora has tsundere Taiga and scary-looking Ryuuji. Whisker Away has hyper Muge and a calmer Hinode. Both are good drama romance anime, all with a comedic atmosphere around a school setting.

Incredible. Seemingly harmless interactions devolve into violence. Consistently. Love is in the air, but it is a questionable one, for sure…

Toradora is like the good version of nagatoro, the main character is kind of similar and the main girls are pretty much the same, tsundere-type (Taiga is more relaxed though) that kicks and punches the mc but in deep they want something with him, i like more toradora but i think that the shows are kind of similar

Both animes have a tsundere theme (love/hate relationship) between the 2 main characters. Basically, the only difference between the two animes is that Toradora takes place in a school setting.

In both cases there is heavy romance and some slice-of-life concentrated around the main couple. Some harem involved. Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu is more otaku-based, while Toradora! is more of school life.

Both of these shows are very similar in terms of themes and issues but especially regarding the development of the story there are many parallels. First of all, both shows are slice of life, school, romance animes with a fair share of drama and comedy. In each case we get to see the development of a kind of love triangle and a strong friendship over a longer time span. Secondly, regarding the development there are certain similarities such as the sudden development of deep friendship, rejections of love confessions, changing romantic interests and especially the way the characters support one another in critical or gritty situations is  read more

Romance animes that can really get to you. Unlikely couples, dealing with and helping overcome each other's issues. Both do a nice job at depicting the characters' emotions of falling in love with someone and being completely clueless about it, at least consciously. Warm, fuzzy feelings that make you blush, almost guaranteed.

Slice of life, comedy, and school are the similarities they share. The characters share similar traits. There is one character in each anime that is part of the student council. Seitokai accelerate in comedy, so you will find it quite hilarious.

Ocean Waves has a more mild and believable Tsundere lead who ropes in a similarly earnest guy, with the same context of high school melodrama and family problems. While these essential elements are the same, the plot and the characters are aimed at a completely different target audience. It's not a sure bet that Ocean Waves will be to your liking just because you enjoyed Toradora, but it provides an interesting and more realistic look at a tsundere romance that's worth checking out.

Not exactly a plot twist, but both shows have drastic shift of mood around the ending. From a seamlessly for-fun-only show with not enough stuff to worry about to the dramatic mess of growing-up, decision, and change. Both are pretty cool if you want a full-blown comedy. But Toradora fare better as a reflection of youth, the last part is totally a grinding melodrama. The last part was well-made, believable story, good dramatic atmosphere, and everyone was scary, even the funny one. For me, I personally dislike drama and can't stand watching one from the beginning, but both shows started off as comedy, and it get me  read more

Being strong on one and only genre is good, it make a strong positioning for the show. However when the show go for more than one tone, it's worth watching even more, as long as one genre doesn't spoil the others. This two shows are probably one of the leading high-school romance comedy of its time. Both shows has a potential of a good comedy, while also maintain high standard of drama and romantic content. The episode can be a pure comedy, pure drama, or mixed, you don't know what to expect for each episode, but that's the charm of these multi-genres romantic comedy.

The relationship between Kippei and Kokoro compared to Taiga and Ryuji are almost identical. Kokoro and Taiga both lack of parent love and portray loneliness. However, I think Kokoro is hotter. The main difference is that Aishiteruze has a kid that interferes in the relationship, while Toradora both oblivious. Nevertheless, both are fun to watch and their cute.

The leading role (Taiga) has the same voice, and both Taiga and Shana are really tsundere and short fused. Another simularity, Taiga is also really short.

Both involve main characters who idolize a guy without seeing the one right in front of them. Toshokan Sensou is significantly shorter and has a very different setting. But they're both funny, and featured short-tempered female leads. Toradora! is definitely the stronger series, but Toshokan Sensou has it's moments.

When I started watching Toradora!, it reminded me immediately of Hayate no Gotoku! Besides being voiced by the same person, the first thing I thought about when I saw Taiga was "NAGI!": They're both short, rich and like to boss around, but they also have their sweet side that they show to the guy they like (and to their close friends). They also have problems with their parents / grandparents. Hayate is also similar to Ryuji in a way that they both serve their "masters" without hesitating, and also take care of the girls. Oh but Ryuji has a scary face while Hayate is cute :P

Torodora and Ichiban are each about a student that is looked down by other classmates because of his scary, apparent nature. Both heavily emphasize comedy, romance, school, and both hone in on the character's predicament. Toradora deals with a high schooler's troubles as everyone thinks he's a rough bully. Ichiban deals with a student's troubles as everyone labels him as a demon lord.

Again, Rie Kugimiya plays a brilliant Tsundere character in Taiga. Who is paired, remarkably enough, with a male named Ryuji. The title ToraDora comes from Tiger & DRAGON. There is no fighting in ToraDora, it is more of a HS rom-com. One of the best IMHO. But both males are good at the cleaning/cooking. Yui Horie lends her voice to supporting characters in each as well as the song tracks. Well worth watching for any fan of rom-coms or of Rose (Rie Kugimiya).

Both are really sweet, in a sense that you just can't get the story and the characters out of your head for weeks, so good they are. Well, both are comedies, both involve unlikely love relationships which are denied by everybody including those in love, both contain a fair amount of "fated to be together" coincidences which make you jump at your seat smiling and clapping your hands happily, realizing what's going to happen and enjoying it in advance; and fair amount of heart-warming turns.

Toradora & Imouto sae both contain the same "Scrubs" - style formula (the irl comedy, occasional emotional doctors show). Namely, they're a) character driven b) part 1 of episode of characters interacting/doing trivial things c) part 2 of episode containing the "feels" / life lesson. a large lesson that is constantly revisited is that of "taking something for granted" whether it be a talent, a personality, a relationship, etc. consequently, each of these shows also delves into when those characters does take something for granted and how it affects the rest of the cast.

both are romantic comedies. but unlike those too much mushy mushy senseless & mindless romances these two actually make sense and really very good to watch. the protagonists are strong characters & the side characters are as good. these animes depicted the human emotions quite superbly. while Tora Dora is all about the high school life and the teenage feelings nd hardships the story of Skip Beat is revolving around the entertainment industry. I love both the animes and I'll recommend them both :-)
