The show had a kinda good first episodes, after that most of the show was kinda average though it had some good interactions between the characters, last three episodes were actually great.
Didn't cared much for the cast except for the two mains though.
since the show was actually good, overall 7/10

Great anime , one of the best romances i have seen so far .
The guy who wrote best review said that the anime was pretty predictable . I disagree however , for me this anime was almost opposite. I believed that Takasu would end up with Minorin but he didn't , which is a bit sad . Even though from the story you can deduce that both Ami and Minorin had interest in Takasu it's not a harem anime , it's something much better , sadder and deeper . I loved characters and their distinctive traits . It was almost as if they lived on their own . Most romantic animes concentrate on main character but this anime reminds us that every character has it's own life and personality..
Also some tunes from anime were more than just memmorable but touching too , like Ame Iro Rondo I'm listening to right now . It evokes sad but deep feeling inside me when i have flash backs about this anime . Not many animes were capable of evoking such deep feeling inside me . Those feelings are the main reason why I'm watching anime . It is capable of something that western movies are unable to do and Toradora is a good example of those deep animes . + It was a fun and pleasant .
I have not yet watched other so called best and saddest romances although i watched a bit of clannad but I stopped for a while because of personal reasons . I look forward to watching these animes and if they really better than toradora it would be perfect .
Also i like these discussion forums , even though I don't use them normally they help people share emotions ... yay that

For all those still asking: Their original plan was to run away for a year until they were both old enough to legally stand on their own and be free of their parents/caretakers.
They realised that was a childish way to go about it, and instead decided to return to their parents and sit out the year they would normally have spend running. They knew there was a good chance Taiga's mom would still insist on her coming to live with her again(especially since she said Taiga's dad business flopped, so he may not have been able to keep sending her money and stuff), but decided it was the grown-up thing to do.
So then what they feared would happen really did happen: Taiga had to live with her mom. However, she really wanted to do the responsible thing, and after one year they're both old enough, and can be together again.
Hope that clears it up for a few people.
This message finally gave me closure for the series!!
Likewise. I was close to giving it a 9 but those last two episodes pushed it to a 10 in my eyes. Its weird though considering I like other animes more than I do this one, but, it still gets a 10 because of how attached I grew to the show. I started with watching maybe 2-3 episodes a night to watchong 4-6 in a row. Only a great anime makes me do that and this one certainly did.

So Taiga goes home to confront his family and make things ok there before he can start with Ryuuji?
I liked the ending but i think there was no need for Taiga to leave with out giving Ryuuji a kiss or something. I guess is because that would have made it a good by rather than a cya later.
This has a been a unique ride. This series completely surpassed the expectations i had when i first started watching it.
Really nice after credits btw ^^
This i agree.

Great ending, only thing I'm wondering about is whats going to happen to Ryugi and Taiga now? Are they still planning on marriage or are they going to pursue college together? And the only thing I had a problem with in this anime was how casually they just brushed aside the crush Taiga had on Kitamura. I mean wtf was that? They spent 20 episodes of Taiga obsessing over him and blushing whenever they talk to like "Oh, its just you Kitmura..."
it wasnt casually brushed off, she just moved on/realized who she really cared about, you could say the same for ryuugi and minori, even had confirmation of her feelings that he was wanting the entire show basically, but he realized the one he truly wanted was taiga
and then there was that winter break, where she talked to kitamura, and apparantly revealed her true feelings about ryuuji to him, an later thinking ryuuji was kitamura, asked him to take away her feelings cuz she couldnt stop loving ryuuji
so it wasnt brushed aside, taiga loved ryuuji, and kitamura loved the former student council president (who didnt truly reject him cuz she felt the same, just didnt want him to throw everything away chasing her) which is even more confirmed when at the graduation bit when they talk about how kitamura is going to study abroad in america (were the council president is or was going to study)

Loved it! Taiga was ... well, Taiga until the very end. And I loved the payoff for her and Ryuuji. I realized it immediately, given the title of the show, but I loved how it was right beneath the surface the entire time. And the kiss(es) were amazing.
Easily, one of my favorite anime ever.

I think the only proper response after finishing that is a wide, shining smile across my face.
It was a great way to wrap it up. Although I kind of expected them to both return in the last episode, and break away from the "main love interest shows up at the very last second and all is well" anime-esque cliche.
The kind where the main character sees the lost soul, and goes to find it but it isn't there.
Surprised me beyond belief with Taiga being in the locker, that was absolutely rich. And then she pulled that tsundere attitude, I burst out laughing, a nice twist to the expected cliche, it really contributed to the huge smile I have across my face right now.
Favorite things about the series as a whole:
Minorin. Especially her speeches about ghosts and UFOs, they were VERY unique.
Ami. I feel really bad for her, she really didn't have any closure. But she was an AMAZING plot device.
Kitamaru. No words can describe how awesome his random stunts were.
The perfect placement of Taiga's "tsundere"-ness, especially this episode.
Inko-Chan. I don't really know why, but he troubled me... like, I'll have nightmares.
That one picture of Takasu's parents, where his 'dad' was groping Yasuko. It upset me the moment I saw it, and kind of made me sad for the entire episode. (It was near the beginning)
The inevitable beach/pool/swimsuit episode. It was useless, just like all episodes of its kind.
But the anime as a whole, with such insignificant negativity, and overwhelming awesomeness, 10/10. It was definitely the best rom-com in the history of rom-coms.
