Violent Tsundere mode : Activated. go Taiga! I CHOOSE YOU!

Taiga and Ryuji. They already act like husband and wife.

I don't understand also why they would censor mold in the kitchen sink. Yes it's disgusting but is it worthy of being censored? Uhmmm...NO!
Pretty sure it's a joke based on the fact that Ryūji can barely stand to look at it and definitely dunwanna think about it.

Gods, Taiga's cute. ...Um, except when she just socked him for being in her way. That was uncool - tho I wonder now if part of it wasn't just her being in a bad mood from being sick. Attacking him over the letter I can at least understand...she doesn't do anything by halves, does she?

Minori's a bit annoying, but only a bit. Why Ryūji has a thing for her is a mystery to me tho; he doesn't seem the sort to go for such a genki-girl.

Can I just hug Taiga?

I dont know if I like the anime or not. Will give it a chance though.
I had a few laughs, but the most of the time I was just confused.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

Rewatching the 1st episode makes me realize even more how my tastes have changed these past couple years. Especially with my opinion on tsuderes :) I won't be rewatching the whole series, but it was a great first episode!

what the fuck is that bird...

how the arse did Ryuu clean up that hell hole of a kitchen in 15 minutes?

why is Taiga such a bitch?


Jokes aside, it was a nice and amusing first episode.

So, another violent heroine, eh? I usally hate those types but the premise seems interesting, I'm already seeing where this is heading on love level.

And I also like main character, he has pretty interesting personality, not something you see too often in those shows.

So far it started pretty decently. Let's see how this show does in attempts to change my picture of her (well, also 'hers' picture of him).
I really wonder if she get likeable in time.

Quite a good 1st episode, Rie Kugiyama is so fitting for younger characters. Can't wait to see how their relationship will develop.

Pretty interesting first episode. Ryuuji's mother o.O Bit of fanservice there how she was lying on the floor, also she is a little crazy, but I like that :D

Ryuuji is cute in them shorts. Taiga is also cute, a bit ungrateful but I'm sure she'll warm up in no time. I wonder why her apartment was so messy? It's a nice apartment though!

Another violent tsundere. Jesus. I despised Louise and if Taiga doesn't calm down in the next few episodes, I'm dropping this.

Also, I really hope they don't keep overplaying the whole "Ryuuji is scary!" deal. The way the classmates had already begun to realize that he only looked scary is a positive sign on that note.

I never read the manga, but this anime has potential, if they do tone down the "Ryuuji is scary!" stuff. I seriously doubt they'll let Taiga calm down, given the popularity of psychotic "tsundere" these days.
So much this. I'll give it a chance, but I won't be able to stand the character and thus the show if this is going to be the case. Who is this crap endearing to?

I'm not too much of a fan of Tsunderes. But I got to say that Taiga's probably my favorite Tsundere in Pop Culture so far.

when i watch again and here the soundtrack with voice of this

There is something in this world which no one has ever seen.

Something soft and sweet. If it is spotted, everyone will want to have it.

This is why it has remained hidden.

The world has hidden it so well so that it is difficult to obtain.

But there will come a day when it is discovered,

And only those who should have it will be able to find it.

That is all.

Taiga is a pain in the ass, exactly the same impression like in source material.
Anyway, nice start and pretty good adaptation of the beginning.

Ok, now I understand why everybody says Taiga is the queen of Tsunderes... enough to see the first seconds of the episode and the OP to notice xD So much TSUN pouring out of such tiny body jaja.

WTF THAT'S his MOTHER!? But she looks like his sister at much! Oh Japan... oh anime/manga... weird as always. And that way to talk to her son.. oh god.. I can't take this xD Moving on.

What kind of reputation does Ruuji have? He seems like a pretty normal guy to me. Of course, compared to Taiga... well, jaja.

"BAKA!" xD The classic tsundere line was so obvious it made me laugh jajaja. Good, good. She's a walking tsundere stereotype.

Only 20 minutes and so much happened.

Hold on a moment, that's a floppy disk right there. In fact that's several floppy disks. And mini-CDs. When was this written again? Because those were *not* still around in 2006...

After 1 episode it's painfully obvious how this is going to end. Will still give the series a whirl though.

They did a good job of introducing four of the five characters in the intro, obviously more so with the main two. They seem like people I can get invested in

I first watched Toradora! ages ago. It’s been over six years at least, maybe eight or nine. It was one of the anime I watched before I really got into anime from what I recall.

I got a bit nostalgic for the good parts here recently, but at the same time I remember there being a lot of it I didn’t care for even back then. Since I’ve wondered off and on over past couple years what I would think of it these days, I decided to give it a rewatch.

My first impression of Minori seems to match what was in my memory. She seems to be annoying and a bit of an airhead. Taiga is as overly violent as I recall. The starting developments are pretty over the top, but I can appreciate what humor was present.

Let’s just see how it goes, I guess.

By the way, for anyone new to the series who watched this episode and thought “oh great, another tsundere”: Taiga is not a tsundere; she’s just violent. Why she doesn’t fit the tsundere archetype will become more apparent as the show progresses, so don’t let aversion to the archetype dissuade you from the series if that’s your only qualm.

Feel 100% the same way.

My main MC Mr.Clean could of at least gotten a Thank You from Taiga for cleaning her apartment and making her food twice. I get it she is a Tsundere, doesn't mean they have to be downright assholes about human decency.

And why is Mr.Clean such a pussy damn, he couldn't even finish 95% of his sentences when talking to her, that made it so annoying to watch this.

Taiga should be arrested also :p
