It had the potential to be amazing from the first half, set up a lot of things to be done perfectly, but it was all downhill from there..


Pretty much how I felt. That's not to say I hate it by any stretch. I gave it an 8/10, but it's far from perfect.

It started off great then the teen romance drama hit hard. I pretty much started to get annoyed with the series after the Student Council arc.

Pros:
- Taiga is easily one of the best Tsundere's ever, and I personally dislike the trope in general.
- Ryuuiji, despite being insanely dense at times, was a very good lead. He realized his feelings much quicker than I expected towards the end of the show. He was also fairly assertive towards the end which is good.
- Ami, almost 90% of the reason I stayed till the end. I honestly didn't think I would like her as much as I did when she was introduced. She really grew on me and was easily the best character.
- Minorin, loved her; she was indeed the 'Sun' of the group. Funny as hell and overall a well rounded character. Kinda reminded me of Rena from Higurashi for whatever reason.

Cons:
- The fucking drama got ridiculous towards the end there. Especially during that scene with the valentines chocolate. As well as the one were Ryuuji told his mother off, and then accepted money from his friends to run away. Those two scenes made me want to slap the shit out of both the MC's.
- The entire Minorin x Ryuuji business was handled horribly in my opinion. I felt Minorin got shafted hard, and ended up looking like some kind of martyr. Would have preferred if the entire thing had been resolved during the Christmas episode. Instead of dragging on the drama till the end.
- Ami's feeling for Ryuuji remained fairly vague, kinda bothered me that he remained oblivious but she seemed to get over it pretty quick. So at least it didn't turn into another melodrama. Though it did bother me that whenever they were having a conversation it was always interrupted.



It's a good series but not something I would watch again. Also it reminds me why it is that I don't like romance anime. This kind of thing is really not my cup of tea. Still, though, I don't regret watching it at all. In fact, I'm glad I did. It was a decent show with some memorable moments.

Likable tsundere
Likable male lead
Great support cast ( I love Ami)
Decent drama
Characters are fleshed out and developed
Relationships between the characters are interesting ( especially the chemistry between Ami and Ryuji)
Comdey that is actually funny
Lovable atmosphere
A lot of emotional and powerful scenes
Nice OP/ED and OST
Nice art style

and...



Those are my reasons for liking Toradora and I consider it special because I watched it really early on, which I guess made me love it since I wasn't used to school romance. I would have given it a 9 if it weren't for that stupid student council arc with all that melodrama and fan-service fight, that was just awful, I hate Kitamura.


I think this is perfect explanation why people love this anime. I started this romantic/comedy/drama recently and i didnt even know that this genre hold such a precious gems. I was always for fights, blood etc, but after i watched Clannad it open entire new world.

I really like in this one character and plot development
Art is great, and you can laught on this humor, not alot but you can.
And there is enough drama to make you care about characters.
and soundtrack, MY GOD, is just amazing.

I couldn't have put it better myself. These are the reasons most people love Toradora!

SHIT TASTE! It was a slice of life shitty anime with obvious characters that get little to no development. The last episode was the final needle in the coffin.

She is not the best tsundere, she is too rude sometimes
Ryiuji is a wimp and reaaaaally dense. He tolerates her too much. Has no life.
The ending left me so mad

Yes i like it but its really hard to accept so many things. The ending ruined for me everything.

Pros

- The kiss scene made me cry and repeat. Damn man, no even in movies you have that.
- Powerful scenes yea, she crying in christmas, the whispering when he saved her

It made me really mad

ps: For the one guy that said Kirino is a best tsundere... my god... Taiga is rude but is way better than that little brat that screwed everyone and destroyed her brother.

Stop it.

I like all the really little things Toradora! did well.

It has a fair amount of techniques and scenes that are ripe for discussion and I would love to do so with any person interested in such a thing.

I gotta say, this show doesn't deserve all the praise it gets.

For one the characters are bland, I didn't care about anyone besides Taiga.

Also Ami didn't stand out as a character, they could've stopped showing her at any point and no one would've noticed.

Also the beginning was so boring I dont even remember what happened in episodes 2 to like 11.

Also like someone else said the drama wasn't that good.

Also I absolutely couldn't stand the sudden love change because it honestly made no sense...let me explain so, in ep 17 Taiga fought for Kitamura after he got rejected. In ep 19 when Ryuuji is going to confess to the red haired girl (sorry forgot her name) Taiga started braking down. Literally a 2 episode difference for her to start liking Ryuuji.
For Ryuuji, he likes the red haired girl for the whole season until like episode 22 or 23. Literally almost the whole show...then he just starts liking Taiga because she likes him. Honestly to me it felt forced.

If you're looking for a good romcom then look elsewhere like oregairu, that show has great characters and drama and good developing romance.

If you compare Toradora to Golden Time (because both shows are made by the same manga author) Golden Time beats Toradora on all aspects: characters, comedy, romance, drama, and even music, but Toradora did have better animation.

I just feel if you didn't like Toradora like me, then some of the reasons above might be why.

Even though by the end of the series every one of the main girls likes Ryuuji.

Personally, I don't like Toradora, and it's one of my least liked animes I have ever seen(with Hyouka). I found most of the characters more annoying than funny and the show did not just make me that interested in it. So overall this show was not for me. But I can understand that other people like it, and there seems to be alot of people that like it.

Aisaka Taiga is a tsundere, I usually dont like tsunderes, but Taiga is pretty cute when she is mad. Some people hate her, some people love her. But I dont like the anime too, it's unrealistic. But thats my opinion.

I watched naruto the last movie and it was basically like a love story (plus action,it's naruto). So I wanted to try something new. Toradora is my first rom/com and I enjoyed it. I watched the dubbed version and it was handled pretty good. Ryuji and taiga made sense. I think even if he got wit minori, he would of missed taiga and realized he loved her. The ending could of been better and it would of been more of a shock if Ryuji would of ended up wit someone else but overall toradora was enjoyable to watch.

Toradora was so boring.
I only watched it all because I downloaded all episodes and that took me so much time that the least I can do is watching all of them.

Taiga was annoying as hell. And.. It was a romcom? Because I swear 70% of the series is just pointless teenage angst.
The only characters I liked were the main dude and the model girl with blue hair. I don't remember their names.

I just finished Toradora! I really enjoyed watch it.

I would say that everybody got his proper tastes, so maybe if you think some anime is borring or another one not, this is not the case for everyone.

Toradora! is worst "romantic" anime I ever watched because we have there one MC which love redhead girl only for years (and around 20 episodes of anime in the row) but in the end he just felt with psychological deviation - father complex, we have one little shit which hate everyone and non-stop talking about it in the face, most of all she hate MC and love only her redhead friend but in the end she felt in love with MC just like a baby because of his courtship (oh, and I so "like" that garbage move when around 20 episodes we see her as total scum and then without reason "Oh! She is not so bad person because she sad and sit at home alone and her father is asshole just like she is, and she sent some presents to orphans, Wow! What an angel!), one pseudo positive girl with big psychological problems which don't care about MC but it's become a tragedy for some reason in final (is she just jealous?), one sceptical hypocritical girl which even can't look worse than Taiga no matter how she is trying, but she just like that become a wise-one and gave advices to everyone. And one thing, Taiga is not Tsundere type, she is just a shitty insane person which lacks slap in the face. Character development here is total catastrophy and hackwork, and I even didn't see any humor there, and there is no any logic or typical sequencing.

Is not bad, I liked it, but Taiga destroyed all the love I had for the anime before rewatching it. The problem of the anime is Taiga. Is not the other characters, the story, the ending (though I didn’t like the ending), or the OP/EDs. It’s a pretty funny, sweet and likeable love story. However, that thing we call Taiga, the one who is so mean and annoying with almost everyone that can’t even be called a tsundere (really, Kirino from OreImo is a tsundere; Villeta from Code Geass is a tsundere; Louise from Zero no Tsukaima is a tsundere, but Taiga is NOT a Tsundere), completely ruined the show for me. I wanted Ryuuji to end up with Minori, but I really didn’t care if he didn’t end up with someone at all, AS LONG AS HE DIDN’T END UP WITH TAIGA. Really, I hate Taiga, and I think she was the only reason I didn’t like Toradora as much as I should. But the kiss scene was pretty sweet though.

You took the words right out of my mouth.

If Minori were the main love interest instead of Taiga, Toradora would've been a much better show than it is. That spunky redhead is nothing short of a goddess and for her to take a secondary role to a disgusting piece of shit like Taiga is just unforgivable.

I still love Toradora but my heart aches when I think about what could've been. Goddammit! Ryuuji x Minori would've been a fucking beautiful couple and anyone that says otherwise is a liar.

*****Watch out spoillers****
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNNED

I just finished watching it. I binge watched the whole thing in one day and let me tell you... it was a journey. It got me feeling butterfly in my stomach. Its not a very comedic show. But it is very romantic. I started shedding tears since the Christmas party episode (19) when Taiga started crying. From there on i encrisingly started crying more and more till when Taiga confessed that she loved Ryuji when she is unconscious, at that moment i cried like a little bitch and from there on i kept crying more and more till the point that my parents though that my gf broke up with me or something... the ending is just sooooo right and (shocker!) Made me cry again. It is a wonderful show and would recoment to everyone.

Look toradora dates back to 2008 and I don't think at that point in time there was any romance anime out there which comes close toradora and the recent ones are all cliches full of fan service with few exceptions so that's why I think toradora is a great watch and above all it hits you right in the spot

Basically. The anime had potential but Taiga was a bitch and ruined it. The other characters were fun & I liked the soundtrack.

Yeah, I'm 1/2 way thru Toradora, and I honestly don't get why people like it so much. I'll admit, I'm not a huge romance fan, but I don't automatically hate romances either, and usually I can at least appreciate the appeal of say, Your Lie in April, or Kimi no Na wa, or whatever.

But Toradora is just irritating. Taiga is a spoiled, obnoxious, brat, and Ryuuji is either a spineless cuck, or some kind of masochist. And the idea that either would be attracted to the other just seems insanely implausible- it just makes no sense. That said Toradora isn't terrible- the general writing and dialogue is ok, but I don't get wgat's meant to distinguish it (in a positive way, at least) from the dozens of other school romance animes.

Toradora was probably great in its time because how many decent romcoms were there in 2008(?) anyway? But if you look at it now, it wasn't really as good as people thought. It went downhill towards the end. All the ridiculous drama at the end was so over-the-top that it was downright cringey. I especially can't help but roll my eyes when they ran away from home.

We have this tsundere who treats Ryuuji like shit and he doesn't do a thing about it because he's probably a masochist. Not to mention, he's incredibly dense like your typical harem mc which is pretty ironic because the show turned into a harem in the end lmfao.

We have all the sudden change of hearts when both mcs spent most of the series fawning over another person and then suddenly they realized that they actually loved each other. I kinda get where Taiga was coming from but Ryuuji was so fucking random istg. He was all about Minorin and then suddenly likes Taiga because the bitch liked him.

Best girl lost even though it was fucking obvious lmao.

I mean, maybe it's because Ryuuji is nice and doesn't like treating people (even jerks) like trash? Wasn't a sudden change of heart either, it's called spending time with someone and getting to know them as a person personally.

the problem with the show is tht nothing actually make sense
like why does it seem like its whos babysitting taiga today
like homie is a her dad more than her significant other
the only ppl who like this show are the same ppl tht dont know wht love truly is
Taiga and ryushi only have problems and issues in common they have no hobbies or personalitiy traits in common with one another
how can you relate to a whiny brat, and OCD cleaner tht yells at his mom but doesnt yell at a stranger doing the same thing, a two faced diva (thts the only character tht develops thru out the series).. a hyperactive softball nut... or a goody two shoes student???
like how can u say this is true love when shes been disrespecting ryushi the whole series and depends on his complete.. she literally cant do anything herself but haves a monolouge on how she doesnt need anybody??? you can only enjoy a show like this if u are a hardcore anime tsudere type of watcher
animes tht are good are ones tht everyone can watch and enjoy its a shame how this is rated so high its quite disgusting

They all act the way they do to hide their insecurities, i thought the show made that very clear
^
i know tht much im not an idiot but 25 episodes of a pity fest for taiga when she clearly bullies ppl is just not good lmao
also you realize tht ryushi and taiga have nothing in common other than they insecurities and problems?? ryushi was taking care of taiga the whole time as if he was her father but calls everyone else childish?? taiga couldnt do a single thing herself taiga didnt even make ryushi a better character let alone a better person
Ami did tht after he met Taiga he was just being rude and more of a whip
this guy couldnt make a decision for himself for the entire show until he ran away to get married to a girl he took care of for a semester
the only characters tht had significant development was Ami and Minori
Taiga also did every single thing for herself in a selfish manner how is she even ready for love??
these things dont make sense which is wht i stated in my previous post i didnt state anything about how they were all hiding they true emotions
like this felt like more of circumstantial coincidence than actually true love
my guy was like oh she likes me so imma like her now type business and how the heck minori end up at ryushi's house when she was headed for school
it was in the opposite direction
the things tht are relatable are the characters probelms i too felt a connection for wht they were going thru felt like my high school days (im 19 now)
but the characters themselves were not (see there's a huge difference in wht i said)
cause Taiga ruined the show completely
just cause they are relatable doesnt make them good characters
truly nothing in this show made sense
like who really goes to the student president and beats her up cause she didnt acknowledge her friend's feelings and taiga couldnt comphrend cause all she thought about was herself also kinamaru did this a couple episodes back to taiga lmao like nothing makes sense with all the hypocrisy tht goes on in this show
if you had a different female lead other the taiga the show probably wouldve been 8/10 but how this show is so highly ranked is quite pitiful

And then you proceed to write an essay on how you don't know that much. I hate the tsundere trope but Taiga is well written and one of the few i like




what in tarnation?

my guy just cause i dont agree with you doesnt mean i dont know anything lmao
like u clearly cant read and if you like taiga thts fine just i think she ruins the show
taiga doesnt even have decent development and cant do anything herself and did you miss the part tht shes a bully.. from start to finish she was selfish and ruining ryushi life and other ppl's lives lmao also she didnt help him become a better person.. she didnt help him make decisions on his own..the one time she was doing stuff for other ppl was christmas and get this.. IT WAS FOR HERSELF TO SEE SANTA LMAO
shes a overgrown child and lil winny brat and by episode 12 it was pity show for taiga
like sakura is better written than taiga and thts a shame
she didnt change throughout the show we literally just saw her differently from other characters point of view getting their input on her mostly ryushi's
she even had a monolouge about how she doesnt need anyone but get this still used her parents money still couldnt do anything on her own lmao
like i said from the post b4 some of these things dont make sense the poetic justice does but the surrounding factors dont make sense which makes the poetic justice look terrible and bad
Taiga and Ryushi only have insecurties and problems in common
and how Ryushi "fell in love" with taiga was circumstantial convenience
she said she loves me so imma drop all these feelings i have for Minori the moment Taiga says she loves me??
Ryushi also acts like a dad rather than a actual lover let alone a husband lmao
always cleaning after taiga without actually growing as a person
i mean for crying out loud the first decision he actually made tht taiga actually made was get this RUN AWAY LMAO
at the end he thought he grew up cause they decided to run to his grandparents house??? how did he grow when he didnt even make the decision to run away in the first place lmao he grew up cause he chose to run away but not fully run away?? tht defeats the purpose they both just overgrown child at this point in the show and its episode 24 at this point
so you got someone who cant do anything on her own and someone who cant make decisions interesting relationship you got there
also you do realize from start to finish ryushi and taiga dont have a substantial convo without her verbally abusing him or hitting him.... and the swim scene
so we got ppl asking ryushi if hes ok.. and someone get ryushi but taiga the girl tht doesnt know how to swim saves him??? lmao and then later on says everyone was looking at the bikini and not worrying about rysuhi which isnt true based on the dialouge tht was happening in tht scene
You clearly just looking at the results and not the journey cause the results in this show dont make sense with the journey
i already stated this in the last two post read or stop commenting
if ya going to read then yeah ill listen but if not dont comment and be some fan boy

Lol, I'm just trolling ofc.

But for real, if one doesn't like Toradora, there's something wrong with you XD
I'm currently rewatching it.

tbh honest I feel not many current anime fans like Toradora anymore in the west
I could be wrong but really feels Toradora was only popular because Shakugan no Shana and Zero no Tsukaima coming out before it. But now almost no one watches Shana because people consider it old and Zero no Tsukaima is only remembered for Louise who people argue is worser than Taiga when it comes to abuse

But considering the context of 2008/2009 Id say its easy to know why Toradora was popular and well liked. Rie was basically at her peak, Shakugan no Shana had ended with a giant love triangle cliff hanger with no news of a season 3 and the OVAs hadn't even aired yet and season 3 of Tsukaima had just ended too. Toradora is incredibly self contained. Its just one season while being a watered down version of Shakugan no Shana and Zero no Tsukaima so is incredibly much easier to watch and actually had a ending unlike the two other incredibly popular shows at the time

Then there is of course the tried and tested successful formula of having several different types of girls you could ship with Ryuuji for fans to debate over or just who has better taste in what girl they liked if shipping wasn't a person's thing


As to answer why people in 2019 when I make this post like Toradora I can only say I don't have the slightest fucking clue tbh



Also oof finally posting in 2013 thread after seeing it pop up for years over and over again

Ryuuji Takasu is a cute, hot and hardworking househusbando. He's prone to help those in need. He deserves the world for being the nicest guy ever (tied with Tomoya Okazaki). He can cook, clean and take care of everything in the house. He is manly yet in total and complete touch with his femine side (just liek mey). Taiga doesn't deserve such a miracle of a man. 10/10 Best Husbando Ever!

Oh and the show is decent but the novel is miles better.
