The ending saved it for me, was sweet.
But I'll most likely forget the series soon enough.

Well in my opinion Toradora! was seriusly a great series. I enyoied every single episode, but not worth a 10/10. They rushed up things too fast, that was a obnoxious move. I still loved Toradora! had a great romance story, a nice comedy, and this last episode was awesome.

The kiss scene was very romantic and very cool performed. I loved the way Yasuko came back and got scolded by her parents, the way she hugged Ryuuji when he was cooking that chicken (?) was adorable. The fact that Ryuuji could accept how Taiga had to face her parents... Fucking cool ending definetly.

9/10 for me.

A decent ending, not the best but it was fairly decent. Although the last minute or so was totally awesome. They also had to fit in that scene that made Minori look completely stupid, and when I thought I couldn't hate her even more. I greatly enjoyed almost every episode and for the 1 or 2 that I didn't enjoy, at least I was able to stomach them pretty well. 9/10 for the series.

That's understandable, but in that case, they should've just paced the entire series just a bit faster instead of completely rushing the last few episodes.
I agree man. They probably could do better if they can rewrite the script, or at least given a few more episodes, but it seems a lot of people are already happy the way it is.

Great ending episode. But Taiga running away... I didn't get why she had to do it. Awesome ending scene in the classroom though.
Taiga chose what's best for her. She returned to her mom after all, instead of being melodramatic runaway kid all over again. For them, family comes first before you start to make ties with your love life - it's the natural thing to do in life. After the incident with Yasuko, Taiga realized her mom was also being childish as she giggles that night before quietly parting with Ryuuji.

Sure Toradora had its ups and downs, but it will remain as one of the best rom coms in my list. First for being "out of the box", defying the laws of anime and avoided being cliché. Even in the first half, they demonstrate how it isn't some sappy shallow romantic comedy where you can predict what are the characters gonna do next in a given scene.

Is someone standing behind you forcing you to watch anime or something?

If you wanna get rid of them, send them around here, I need a good excuse :P

I was enjoying this series, until the last ~3 episodes, which made me drop the score (from 8 to 6).
I'm highly disappointed, that's all.

I loved it, Happy ending. Happy endings usually get lower scores, but I won't let that hold me back, I'm going to give this a 10.

I wanted TaigaXRyuuji so I'm pretty happy, that was a brilliant kiss & the "I love you" part was lovely.

Lol @ Inko-Chan.

Good work!

P.S. - I think a Toradora ~After Story~ would be nice lolol

This. This is what I loved about Toradora in the beginning. I was glad to find a rom com where, for once, I was not able to predict every little thing that happened. The fact that the characters were deeper than your typical rom com characters, and played different roles really intrigued me. I just felt like they really lost it in the last few episodes, where I was able to pretty much call things right on again.

Loved it. Even after having read a good portion of the novel, I still found it above and far beyond my expectations. Rival to clannad AS in my books, especially considering it's pretense is somewhat similar to your typical male lead and female tsundere relationship. 10/10

Okay so I totally think they [Ryuuji and Taiga] did the *deed*.

Do they have SP's for animes like they do for dramas?! Cause I think Toradora deserves an SP.

Nooooooo, it's finished!!!!

Would have been a perfect ending if Taiga hadn't fucked off for about 10 mins.

The kiss, just wow, cutest anime kiss i've seen.

awesome show is awesome. it would really shocked me if it wont be a happy end, but taiga in a uniform is more than satisfying, a wedding dress won be bad either.
a great show i loved from the beginning.

Toradora was an ok series, I wouldn't call it great. The best parts of 25 was Ya-chan returning and Inko-chan finally saying his name. More developement of AmixMinorin would have been win

Well I think it's time for everyone to review their thoughts about Toradora. Very good series, from the beggining to 18, maybe 20 ep it trully deserves full 10/10. Later to 24 ep, it was going somekind worse, but thank god, that ending saved that anime and will let it reside in my memory as really good. Nice ending, kiss and last scene with "I love You" are what I wanted to see. So take good 9/10 from me and Farewell Toradora! Farewell!

Overall I really loved the series,
though I still don't understand how all of a sudden in ep 24 the thing about marrying got into their heads. I expected a bit more of this episode, I was sad to see Taiga run of again, but this time to make up with her mom, which is good too. I would have loved it if they could have extended the ending a bit more, it was cute to see Taiga with her uniform in the locker, but.. her reaction was predictable/cute, though I wished for more :p Of course, the kissing was adorable.

And, what to say more? Should they leave the series like this now,
or maybe in the far, far away future an OVA? Considering it was this popular, it might get licensed soon as well?

9/10 series, perfect except a few flaws in .. well you know what ep.

I really enjoyed watching the series. Though the whole thing about running away and getting married was a little... well... half-baked. Eitherway, good anime is good.

So guys, whats next ?

This is a fine show and I think there's no need for a second season or a sequel or whatever. It's fine the way it is. Tora x Dora !

Ain't it the truth. By the way, anyone found a gif of taiga making that unbelievable face after Ryuuji told her he loved her?

I'm pretty sure that this is the best romance-comedy I've seen so far.
10/10


woah woah, Toradora is fantabulous, don't get me wrong and it deserves all the praise, but it pales in comparison to the pure romantic tour-de-force that is Nodame Cantabile, ESPECIALLY the manga, but also the anime. You guys need to watch that (as I see you and xoxo both haven't.) before saying that. hehehe


That might be true, I might watch it since Riona is voiced by Rie Kugimiya.

At one point I kinda started to like Toradora less than I did before (when it turned more slice-of-life-like than the initial comedy setting), but these last few episodes (except the 24th maybe) made me love this anime as much as I did when I started watching it in few months back.

I love it for the way they show the characters' everyday problems, relations among another and how a strong feeling has grown between them all over the span of 25 episodes (two years [?] in the anime). It's just great.

Toradora receives a 10/10 from me for its plot, characters, the realistic way they've shown how they all interact among each other, the great music and so on. Fuck the art, of course it could be better, but right now, except the highest rating - I'm adding this anime to my favorites, aswell as Taiga.

PS. I loved the kiss scene, it was so damn innocent. <3
PS2. Hooray for Inko-chan! :D

First part of this ep was great









Why did Taiga left the school? ok her new uniform was better,but that was not the reason XD
I also wished for more romantic in this ep;(


overall Score is 8/10
in the middle of the show there where some eps I didn't liked.
So I can't give a higher Score

Barring the epic kiss, it seemed like a typical end to any romcom. Needed more AmixMinori screentime though. Leaving it at a 9/10.

Well, this is the second time toradora has surprised me in as many episodes. First he proposes to her right out of the blue when they haven't even kissed yet and then it ends up with her doing the very thing they had just talked about, running away. Yes, she was running away as she lied to Ryuuji and then secretly left under the cover of the night leaving him only a note.

It seems like poor planning led to too much content being cut at the end leaving a rushed feeling. The whole series was a slow build up to Ryuuji X Taiga and then in the last 2 episodes they're like "marry me! ok! lets run away! ok now we patched things up with your family so instead of introducing you to my family like you did, I'm going to disappear and leave you a note." Too rushed, too many unanswered questions and too many unsupported plot twists. I still liked the series but if they wanted to do something like this well, they needed to support it (come on, after all they've been through, taiga doesn't even think Ryuuji deserves to be told to his face that she is leaving?)

Can't really forgive the melodrama that plagued the second half so I'm unable to really give it a 9 or a 10. But, it was a decent series overall, so I can live with giving it a solid 8/10.
