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.
Both versions had a few sentences I would've worded differently. gg's had about 4 of those, Mayu-Genjo 1 or maybe 2. I've watched both versions and I think Mayu-Genjo is quite a bit better than gg. gg are more of a somewhat-quality speed sub group anyway while Genjo is not. And yes, the Mayu-Genjo version looked better to me.

Iriya said:100% in agreement :)
I had a big sigh when Aisaka (I almost typed Louise there) started calling Ryuuji a dog. Sound familiar at all? D: I hope it doesn't become too prominent in the series or it gets a bad score. Otherwise, I rather liked the rest of the episode. At least so far I like Ryuuji a lot better than I liked Saito.
I really wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised, and will definitely catch the next episode. Some of the art kind of weird-ed me out a bit though; there were more than a few scenes where the girls looked like little kids (ie: big heads, with little unporportional bodies).

Ugh, I see the serious TL error in Mayu now.
"Keep sneezing" and "Go to doctors", massive fail on that part.
I noticed that they also failed to translate "10 minutes" properly. Sure Ryuuji was holding up 3 fingers.. but he definately didn't say "30 minutes" as was shown in the subs.
While Mayu's source is of better quality, I just think that they put in a little too much fluff... for example the title sequence... that was just unnecessary in my opinion.

Ok so when first found Toradora I was looking pretty much forward to watching it.
But after watching ep1, all I can say is, its horrible. The characters are lame, whole beginning sucks and everything is lame, like YourMessageHere said, wth man, you get punched, you flat gets damaged and you clean her whole place?
I don't think I'll watch this any more.

I want more now!! (>.<) lol ok i can wait
Well, that was abysmal; another single episode entry for the dropped pile. "I was punched, had my flat broken into and nearly got knocked out by a tiny bitch...what shall I do...oh yes, make her dinner, clean her flat and agree to do whatever she wants while she hurls insults at me!" That was so bad, I've been inspired to create a new tag for my list: Total Logic Bypass.
Honestly, WTF is with this fashion in anime for things that ought to make sense but totally fail to? Can we not have a show about two people with conflicting personalities having a relationship despite themselves without it becoming utterly idiotic inside of two minutes? And the humour? I've seen funnier blisters.
^^^^ANGRY OTAKU ALERT!!!^^^^ lmao XD
ever think that he is just nice or doesnt think shes that bad or is scared of her and will do stuff so she will leave him alone? that doesnt defy logic that much =P

too bad gg's subs are only 848 x 400... i was expecting some H264 1280 x 720 or something like that, but hell, the animation was nice.
Too bad you say? Well, just so you know, there are no freakin' HDTV raws for this anime. You can be pretty happy that they did h264 release at all.
Wow, a loli chick who's an ungrateful bitch that constantly shouts "Urusai" HASN'T been done at all... Pretty goddamn innovative... >.<
Indeed, i wonder how they even came up with that...
Am I the only one who watched this willing someone, anyone to simply punch Taiga out and say "stop being such a bitch"? If someone punches me with intent, I punch them back, I don't care what gender or how small they are - the risks of physically attacking larger, stronger people are obvious. I absolutely long to see something with a character like this who keeps trying to act the same way, and just ends up being knocked the hell out every time by people who refuse to take that sort of rubbish. Suppose I'll be waiting a while.
I agree with you 100%. (but hey, there still will be 500+ people who will tell us that it is just an anime..)
I'm getting the idea that most of the people who like tsunderes either don't have a girlfriend (and want someone as cool as those little chicks to boss them around) or/and are masochists.
And knowing that japs don't have such a fulfilling sexual life (proven by statistics) i can understand how shows like that get a lot attention there. Everyone have their own fetishes...
As for the show, i expected less tsundere domination and more rebellious male character (which turned out to be a spineless slug). Animation was better than average, had it's own style, but nothing too much worthy to mention.
I suppose i should hide now from incoming fanboy fire....
