Takasu Ryuuji has learned the hard way that appearances can be deceiving. For despite his inwardly sweet personality, his unintentionally sharp gaze and aggressive features give him the air of a delinquent thug, putting his chances at making new friends, let alone a girlfriend, next to zero.

It's Ryuuji's first day of his second year of high school and it seems as if things are looking up. He gets to sit in between his only friend, Yuusaku, and more importantly, the girl he's secretly crushing on, Kushieda Minori. But just when he thinks the stars are aligned in his favor, he unwittingly crosses the most feared girl in school, Aisaka Taiga, making her into his arch enemy. To top it off, Taiga has moved in right next door to Ryuuji and happens to be Minori's best friend! Can this school year possibly get any worse?!

The problem with describing, reviewing, or recommending Toradora to people is the fact that it really deviates very little from the romantic comedy mold. Trying to go into depth about it's plot or the character development or plot direction won't raise any eyebrows by any means, so let's get something out of the way right off the bat: you've probably seen this story a million times by now--"boy likes girl, girl likes boy, denial and wacky antics ensues". However, what sets it apart is the quirkiness of it's execution--Taiga herself not being a perfect fit to the "tsundere" archetype and Ryuuji himself being a generally read more

There are some anime's out in the world that have a satisfied ending, some that have ones that just leave you hanging, and some that end fine, but you are just so attached to the characters and story line that you can't possibly end the adventure there. Thats when you either start the anime over, or pick up the manga. For me, it was the latter.

I didn't even know there WAS a manga of Toradora! until after I had seen the entire anime. If you HAVE seen the anime of Toradora!, I'll say that the manga is extremely close to the anime. I've even noticed read more

The fact is that even though this manga only picked up not so long ago..
It is one of the most hilarious ones I've had the pleasure to read.
Taiga and Ryuji may seem like they have some kind of dispute at first, but the deal is that they have the same personalities.
They are both hot headed who are feared by all their school, which gives them almost no social life, and are only liked by their friends, who are very near nothing.
And what makes the hilarity even more enjoyable is the fact they fall for each others friends.
Ryuji falls for Manika, a cheerful girl who is read more

Forget breathy sighs, excessive thought bubbles, and unending miscommunication. Toradora! centers around two relatively straightforward, unconventional leads that inadvertently become best friends. Despite having a combative relationship, Taiga and Takasu agree early on to serve as wingmen for each other in pursuit of the other's best friend. Takasu likes the silly, cute Minori (Taiga's best friend), while Taiga likes the sociable, active Kitamura (Takasu's best friend).

It took me 5-10 chapters to get into the swing of things, but once Taiga and Takasu established their friendship, I found this manga to be delightfully refreshing. I'll agree with other reviewers that there's nothing read more
