I liked the beginning and middle of Toradora, but the end just seemed to be kinda lacking.

I loved it! 1,000,000/10!!!!!!

The ending was cuter than hell and everybody got their TaigaXRyuuji fix. Shame that Minori and Kitamura didn't hook up though.

Now that the series is finally over I gotta go punch something. I can't be feeling all warm and sentimental. I'm a man damn it! >.<

Agree with this. I like this show but last episodes were to fast paced for my taste. Well it's end now and I already miss Toradora :/

It was a cute ending but I never understood why she had to transfere from her school.
I wish the series focused more on comedy than drama but it was ok.

I liked the start of the episode, but the ending was really disappointing. She said she wasn't going to run away, and I suppose she meant from her parents - but doing so she messed up everyone's lives at once. Great. I guess Ryuuji needs to finish school before anything serious can happen, but still I wanted a nice marriage ending!!!

Lol relationship charts, how very defunct.

I love this anime. T_T The character depth and emotion portrayed in this anime is just completely amazing. It doesn't go over-the-top with the drama and manages to stay lighthearted and fun throughout. You get to see the different faces of each of the main characters and they still seem to actually STAY in character. When the usually upbeat Minori is in despair and saddened beyond belief, it's still actually believable because they gave hints that Minori keeps her weaknesses to herself throughout the entire anime. I love how they did that with all of the characters. They weren't JUST given a role to play and were kept in a box, they were portrayed as ACTUAL people even though they were still given a cliche role to play at the beginning of the anime. Few anime break through this barrier and I think Toradora does this perfectly. I'm very glad I watched this anime. I think it's going onto my favs.

Wow cute ending, definitely a suitable ending in a sense for such an awesome anime, I was kind of expecting another super drama type scenes to be present but I guess not xD

Fucking terrible ending. Worst shit ever. End of fucking story. Still gave it a 9 though, because the first 20 or so episodes were fucking great.

Great episode, great series.
I just can't believe this ended, what am i going to do on Thursdays?
It was just so good, and i still can't forget how Ami rocked even though this ep was all about RyuujixTaiga.
Afterall, 10/10.

LUV IT!!!! Great series, ending had me worried for a second but it came through. Kisses were very touching. Btw...their were four new character icons at the end, a spin off series or sequel in the works?

Not a bad ending, not what I had in mind but still not horrible. Did he not see Taiga at all until graduation? Why they heck would she stay away for so long?

Would have gave it a 8.5/10 if that was possible so I rounded up to 9.

Because she didn't want to run away anymore, and she wished to get her parents approval to marry Ryuuji.

The ending was good, but nothing more than that. I really don´t like endings like this, i want a more closure of ending.

So i really hope that we can get a OVA showing their life after graduation. Hopefully their wedding, and then a few years later so we can see their kids :D

Ahh, now it makes sense. After they had the talk about doing it proper she decided to move back to mend the fences and get in good standing with her parents to get approval. I blanked out on that.

It was decent, rushed like the episode before it, but Ryuuji and Taiga's first kiss was just absolutely perfect.

I could have done with better closure though. This doesn't feel complete to me.

They were at the very end after Ryuuji finally said it. The characters spell "o-shi-ma-i" or "oshimai" translated as "the end".

First off, I got to say I could not stop smiling during the kiss part. I was like "Finally" lol. This show had sometimes where it was like "Um okay" But I think this ending along with the awsome story it told makes it awsome. I am so sad to see this show finally finish. I am like this with alot of shows but for some reason I just dont want this to end. I want to see what happens with them afterward and everything. I am with everyone when I say "I want an OVA or something to show us what happens after all this" Only thing that made me mad was how Ryuuji was so sad near the end because Taiga was gone and that they didnt do one finale kiss at the end. Also, I know Taiga was the mean one and didnt show the emotions alot, but it kinda made me mad when she didnt say "I love you" back, but instead went on the shouting of how it wasnt the perfect time and stuff like that.

I dont see a rom-com topping this for a long time coming. Anyone that hasnt watched this should now. Especially since it is all over and you dont have to wait each week.

10/10 Just loved it.

PS: Kinda sad about Minorin though. Near the beginning I wanted Ryuuji with her but I still love RyuujixTaiga.

I will grudgingly give this a 10/10 I think because the ending was so damn good. A bit cheesy with Taiga coming back, but everything was extraordinarily well executed and brought a smile to my face. As for the rest of the season, I would give it a 9/10, but the ending boosted it up that little bit.

Ya-chan and Inko-chan ftw.

And so, one of the great Fall 08 shows comes to an end. With one more episode of Clannad ~AS~ that I have left to watch (which is just a recap anyways), I have no idea what Spring 09 show can fill the void.

hmm, this episode had me smiling constantly. Toradora was such a thrill to watch, It's a shame it's over. This ending will probably have me in a good mood for weeks to come.

Overall it's a 9/10 for me.

Worst ending i've ever seen. don't get me wrong here i loved toradora, it could have possibly became my favourite series ever but in the end i had to give this series a 9. The first 21 episodes were almost perfect in my opinion. The last 4 however ruined the series for me. Everything i loved about series (the natural feeling, the non-clicheness, the romance, etc) just turned opposite in those last few episodes. it got ridiculous, the main characters pissed me off, they completely mislead the romance and then did a poorly developed one at the end.

also i don't see how people loved this episode. almost nothing happened, they kept saying 'i wont run away' like the last ep but did the same thing and ended up running away, the kiss scene was really bad, ryuji didn't apologize to yasuko which he freakin should have, and the characters spent most of the episode just sitting around doing nothing.

i could rant more but i think i've had enough, the series is over and i no longer need to worry about getting more annoyed at it.

I like how both Taiga and Ryuuji acted maturely in the end... and Not running away from their problems... Love how Ryuuji mom being more adult by finding a ore proper job.. The ending was good... A great improvement from episode 24.... I wonder whether both Taige and Ryuuji are pursuing their studies after graduation?...

I ended this at 9/10
The last three minutes saved it from being dropped down to an 8... and then I remembered I was comparing it to too high of a standard.
So it still will take my #5 spot. Making Ga Rei Zero's stay there the shortest... ever...
And being the 7-13th anime added to my top five in my whole stay at MAL.

But back to the episode itself...
Yeah, the last few episodes were gold. My egotistical self loving the juniors' gossip about their seniors.

wow. it started out so well too. i don't like the last few episodes at all. maybe all the mush took away what could have been a good wrap up of the story. it gets a seven because of an ending like that.

certainly hope that there will be at least some sort of OVA in the near future, although some may say that it would ruin the ending... i say that it would satisfy me a bit since it was kind of depressing to see taiga disappear and come back at the END...with like 5 seconds of them finally together once again... feels like i only got to eat the strawberry on the tip of the cake and then someone was like. OH NO. nah you can't eat the rest. but you can imagine how it would've tasted like. i think i'd rather someone tell me how it would've tasted like.

Hmm on second thought, I think I'll go back to giving it a 9. It was pretty close, but I think the very, very last part of this episode made me revert back. The entire series overall would get a solid 9/10, but the last episode made it better and the second to last episode made it worse. Sorry Toradora, you were still my second favorite of the Fall Season that is now coming to a close (right behind Clannad ~AS~).
