Toradora!, Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Recommendations
Yui reminds me of Minori from Toradora and I feel OreGairu has got a lot of inspiration from that series with the lead male as well (though he not only looks delinquent, he pretty much is). Similar storyline pacing and character dialogue/interactions. As a big fan of Toradora I think this one is going to be a must.
Oregairu feels similar to Toradora!. The first point is that both male main characters (Ryuuji Takasu in Toradora! and Hachiman Hikigaya in Oregairu) have those "hostile eyes" which makes people think that they are criminal; which they aren't. Both of them are insecure and gets some kind of "help" with their social problems. Second point is the atmosphere, which feels similar, in a way, and both takes place in school. Third point is the kind of characters in both shows, which I think all could be in either show, because the way the act and talk is similar. The art is also something that they
The main male protagonist definitely has a strange look on his face in both series. But beyond that, they also have a strange relationship/interactions with the main female protagonist of the series.
Both Toradora! and Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. takes place in a school life setting where youth experiences the life of drama and love. At the same time, there's also joy and fun for the main characters - some taken less so more than others.
Both series also makes usage of humorous dialogues in a lighthearted setting.
The two shows include their main male characters as an outcast that is forced by the story to possibly end up with either of the two female characters in a romantic relationship.
The female leads are similar in which they're fiesty and tsundere-like and don't have friends except Taiga has one friend. As for the male lead they're both outcast such as Ryuuji he's unable to make friends because of his appearance. But eventually they're able to find close people to click with. As for the story plot, Toradora is a little bit different. It mainly focus on romance problems such as love triangles while My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU focus more on school activities and philosophical views on society. But if you like romantic comedy then Toradora is for you.
You'll probably like both for the same reason, especially if you make it to the second season of Oregairu. The pinnacle of character based rom-com.
Both anime have a way of showing you character perspectives and character relationships. Romance and comedy included.
I liked this anime mainly because it has very good character and relation progression and nothing feels forced. This, in my opinion, makes it similar to Toradora. Both have very good characters and good stories and I think if you liked Toradora you will like this too.
The main character in both have the deadpan eyes and both are spins on the Romcon genre!
Both anime are about a bunch of teenagers struggling to know and identify themselves, by making themselves a better person. They have their own insecurities and problems to deal with.
Both anime aren't your mediocre comedy, drama, romance, school, slice of life shows. All 2 of them have a certain depth in character development and relationship. Also both are giving you a good view into the characters psyche.
