Lol that was fun to watch. Look forward to more :D


You better join on Hyakko too since I see you like Hidamari Sketch. It looks a lot like it.
Oops! I appear to be incapable of following Rules 16 and 17, so I had to have a mod change my sig for me.

This will easily be enough to cover my tsundere needs for this fall. Even though the first part was dull, it became pretty interesting after Chiaki Taiga came. The main guy is pretty funny, but I can say that I didn't like his seiyuu.

Oh, and, any anime containing our beloved tsundere queen Kugimiya Rie and Hocchan is pure win.

Well, ignoring Shana and ZnT like the plague (or Taiga's sink), this would mean Toradora is my first anime with the Rie + Tsundere combo. Pleasantly surprised with the first episode.

Production wise, it was nice, and I got quite a few laughs as well. Taiga is cute. Everyone's said it, but I want to say it too. xD

Definitely going to keep an eye on this. Probably going to be a good anime for pure entertainment.

I will correct that...CHIAKI VIBES MINUS THE IMMATURITY. I find Aisaka more mature than Chiaki a little but not much.

It's a good first episode. I hope the ones that follow will be even better.

I lost some respect for JC Staff after ZnT3, but maybe this one will more than make up for it.

What a great episode.

Everything was top notch, the animation was great, the characters are great. I really like Ryuuji facial expression. They are done really well. I can't wait for the next episode, it looks like I will enjoy this new anime season after all.

Now that was way better than I thought it would be.

Also, Rie is not using the usual tsundere voice for Taiga, so props to her! XD

This show has my interest, will definitely continue watching.

Toradora seems a pretty good series, I enjoyed the first episode and it got my expectations high, so I hope it will live up to it =)

"Oh, I see. Palmtop Ti-"
This whole episode was hilarious. I really have high expectations; hopefully this won't go the direction Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu went (EDIT to clarify: I mean loose its originality & funness). Taiga looks like she'll be much more enjoyable to watch tsundere-ing than Shana (who was just annoying, I still haven't been able to finish that series).
The ED was pretty good, it might just grow on me. I'll have to watch it the next couple of episodes [/usually skips OPs and EDs]. I wonder if the OP will be any good.
Animation & character rendering were high quality IMO.

Richard_Omega said:
ryuugi's mom is hilarious as well, reminds me of sensei in nogizaka xD
Please, his mom is far better than either of those two whores from NHnH. Just watching one episode shows that. With no foreknkowledge of the story, I'm getting the idea that she has a reason to be lying around drunk all day.

Wasted_Life said:
Dont expect a deep psychological thriller out of this series.
Happily, I enjoy both ^^

Now I have to wait for Hyakko subs.

Hm, I don't know but I didn't enjoy this episode much. Maybe it was the pacing, it felt too rushed in the beginning and then dragged out after her found the letter.
At least fall season's started, my list was feeling a bit empty.

Much better than I expected o.O
The girl looks alot like Louise from zero no tsukaima, only she doesn't have that annoying voice xD
The animation seems pretty cool, and I like the drawing style in general, so I'm looking foward to see what's going to happen :D

There's no way this is the next Haruhi Suzumiya. It was decent at best. Hopefully the next episodes will be better.

I'm no big fan of Shana or ZnT (not even the first season). While it feels awkwardly familiar, the first episode of Toradora seems somewhat more interesting than the aforementioned series. I doubt I'll stick with it until the end, but I will definitely watch a few more episodes to see how it develops.

more mature than ZnT and SnS. Has a more serious vibe in it despite the comedy.

Now we know Jc.Staff + Rie doesn't necessarily equal the same voice. Thanks goodness, Louise/Shana/Nagi's voice is wearing me out. Good to hear a change after all that....

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

The first episode is better than I anticipated. Rie's voice is not too high as she did other characters but it still show the tsundere's atmosphere around her. And Hoc-chan as Minori is a pure win. The ED song is good too which reminds me of how Hoc-chan did the ED for Nagasarete.

Well I'm going to see how the series are going now. Hope it will be good as the first episode.

They are sticking to the novels thus far, though to be expected given that its the first episode. I honestly don't remember whether Taiga and Ryuji lived on the same floor, but I guess that's not really a big issue...unless they plan on using that for some unnecessary fanservice...

Got major Shana vibes from Taiga...hehehe

Nor will I ever see that piece of crap show that did nothing but butchered such a great story. Why I'm so worried on how ToraDora will fare in the hands of J.C. Staff... Seriously getting bad vibes with their windows right next to each other. (I could have sworn that Taiga lived either on the penthouse or at a higher floor)

Please Taiga was one urusai away from being a Shana clone. xD

For your own bit so you don't have to worry: Volume 1, Chapter 3 (according to Baka-Tsuki light novel translations) says "Carrying the phone receiver past the ridiculously narrow living room and looking out through the dim window, Ryuuji could see the Bourgeoisie-style apartment block. Yet on the second floor of that building... looking straight across from the window opposite..."
It does say later though "This got Ryuuji wondering, just how much was the rent here? ...Shoot, I forgot to ask what her room number is. Though that problem was quickly solved... Because there was only one door at the end of the corridor... In other words, the entire second floor of this Bourgeoisie-style apartment block was the Aisaka residence. " That's probably where ya got the penthouse idea from, since she owns a whole frickin floor (I'd love a place that big =( ... )

I know what ya mean about them butchering the stories. I watched some ZnT before I heard about the light novels being so much better, then checked them out, and I agree it ruined the storyline. Too much of a difference between the two to say they didn't mess it up. I'm hoping they don't screw up this series too.

The fact that Taiga looks exactly like Chiaki Minami kind of disturbed me. Other than that, it was ok, felt a bit exaggerated at some parts.

Not a bad first ep. Quite funny.

Ill continue watching for now, really need to see what it develops into.

Man, I haven't laught so hard since Fruit Basket (which I saw on New Year) !!

Saw the promo about 2 months ago, and thought I'd give it a try because it looks good. It's very good! I don't know about the other characters they resemble, so I'm enjoying this even more.

The music is very very good. If it was out, I would have downloaded the OST right away. I don't like watching series that haven't finished yet (I have a certain discomfort with that), but this is the first show that's currently airing that I'm watching!!! (I NEVER do that)

Ryuuji's voice got me into it (it's so different from the usual high school student voice), the humor and ... I was surprised at the ecology lesson. The censored sink was so funny.


"...it's mold, moldiness, HEAPS OF MOLD !!!!" Argggg... LOLOL

The bird part cracked me up. I couldn't stop laughing for some reason.
Anyways, it was Ok. I'm liking the manga better right now but maybe when theres more eps I'll like the Anime.

Well, it was nice, but the theme of girl treating guy like shit ("you are my dog") is getting really on my nerves.

It was a bit funny in the beginning of Zero (and a bit of it in Shana) but again?

But the rest was pretty funny and interesting. Taiga seems to be even more extreme, than Louise. There are some aspects I like about her. The main guy was ok, no complains about him. His big love had a bit of a boring character (so far), though.

Looks like an interesting anime, I will follow for sure.

The Ending was very awesome.

So now that there are three different subs out, what's your take on which is more worth it? There were plenty of differences in translation between GG and Mayu, but posessing almost no japanese knowledge I can't truly argue for either so I'd like some opinnions on the matter. As for the raw itself, Mayu's seemed to have the upperhand here, as it was far cleaner.
