Description

* Based on a light novel series by Takemiya Yuyuko, illustrated by Yasu.

Takasu Ryuuji is frustrated with the way he looks as he enters his second year of high school, for despite his gentle personality, he actually looks like an intimidating delinquent. Thus he does not see his chances of getting a girlfriend improving any time soon, and does not have many close friends either. After being greeted by his hungover mother in the morning, Ryuuji goes to school and finds out that he is in the same class as his best friend Kitamura Yuusaku. But what makes him extremely happy is that he gets to be in the same class as his crush Kushieda Minori. However, it is then that he unexpectedly bumps into Aisaka Taiga — the creature ranked most dangerous in the school — who goes by the nickname Palmtop Tiger and also just happens to be in his class.

Taiga has a negative attitude towards others and will not hesitate to snap at people. After a series of misunderstandings between Ryuuji and Taiga, Ryuuji is taken in by Taiga as her personal servant. Taiga had moved out to live on her own due to family issues and is inept at doing household chores. After discovering the state of her apartment Ryuuji, who has a real talent for domestic chores, decides to do all of her house work. Taiga spends a lot of her time over at his house, so much so that she could almost be considered a member of his family. And since Ryuuji spends a lot of time with Taiga, he opens up to her world and to a side of her that most people do not see. The two also attempt to help each other in order to improve their relationship with their respective crushes — Taiga has a crush on Ryuuji`s best friend, Yuusaku, and Ryuuji has a crush on Taiga`s best friend, Minori. However, fellow students start to become curious about their strange relationship together and rumours begin to spread about them...

Toradora was one of my first introductions into the romantic side of anime, and I honestly couldn't have asked for anything better!

The fun loving, innocent and playful love that is depicted in the world full of teens trying to discover their own puppy like crushes is a fun and heart warming watch. 

As someone who has come back to watch this anime 3 times now, I always leave with a smile on my face and warm heart. 

The only con I could give is that its slow pace can be frustrating as the plot can become easily predictable.

Toradora!

Honestly loved every bit of it. 

Being the third official anime I've watched, it was definitely a good suggestion. Without a doubt, there's tsundere, but it isn't over the top. 100% worth watching if you're into school life/romance.

The Good 
Plenty of romance 😀
Great storyline.
Loads of drama!

The Bad 
Some parts can seem kind of slow while watching.
Sometimes you can easily predict what will happen next

Romance anime not really being my cup of tea,I expected Toradora to be one of the classics.However,though having its chiches here and there,I have to say that it was a bit different from every romantic anime I had seen so far.

The Good 
I watched Toradora at least half a year ago but the sensation it left me still lies inside me.The pros of the anime,in my opinion,are:
1-It actually had a plot a bit different from other romantic anime.So,for fans like that seek something different,it was an advantage.
2-All of the characters were interesting and unique in their own way.
3-The music felt really good,especially the first opening.
4-It had its comedic moments,its serious moments and its sad and teary moments.All of these,within one episode.
5-The graphics were in a quite satisfying level.Their most important purpose,that is the illustration of emotions(personally) was perfect.
6-The romance level was quite good.Not too romantic,not too serious.
7-The voice actors were suitable for the characters as well.
8-The ending of the anime was actually good,not making me wish for something else.
9-The anime ended in such way that everyone is happy and has no need for a second season.
10-The fact that Taiga was a tsundere was making the anime all the way more intriguing.
11-The character development is remarkable.
12-Taiga was not the classic,helpless girl and Ryouji was not your typical hansome guy(he is handsome and all,just not the guy every girl will droole over)

The Bad 
The pace was a bit slow.While we know that the two protagonists start catching fellings for each other without understanding it,it still takes too many episodes for action to begin between the two.Furthermore,I would like to see a rival either from Taiga's side or Ryouji's side,so as to realise their feelings and the anime to have more inetrest and intrigue.Leaving that aside,the anime was pretty good and achieved its purpose.

Pure Tsundere straight out From the little Tiger

All in all the anime was good. You can expect a lot of tsundere factor from every side of the story. This anime is clearly for people who loves the tsundere type of dere. The story may be kind of slow on the uptake. The ending.... Well, it's up for you to judge. It's kinda cliché too which is a minus point for me. It lacks some twists and turns but all in all it was satisfying for a romance anime with a tsundere MC.

The Good 
1.) The anime has a good storyline. It is easily understandable by the viewers especially people which are new to anime
2.) Purely Romantic with huge spoonful of Tsundere factor
3.) Comedy is spot on. It has a nice sense of humor
4.) A lot of punching, kicking and clawing can be seen in the anime.

The Bad 
The anime is kinda slow for the uptake. Maybe because the girl was a little too tsundere. It's a cliché kind of story.

Toradora ~ Wonderful Anime

Going into Toradora I wasn't expecting much because I'm not a huge fan of Slice of Life animes. After the first few episodes I was super addicted to all the characters. The constant relationship drama between the characters made my heart ache until the very end.

Music is a very important aspect when it comes to watching any anime or television show. Toradora's music felt perfect to me. 
The character development was executed quite nicely. Some animes don't develop their main characters enough because they add too many main characters. This is not the case with Toradora. There's only one main character that isn't introduced in the first episode of the anime but they don't forget about developing the other main characters when they introduce her. I would have liked to have had a second season because of the way it ended but it still ended nice.

Overall, I love Toradora and would recommend it to any and everybody who watches anime.

The Good 
Excellent Story
Excellent Music
Excellent Character Development
It's not a Fanservice Anime

The Bad 
It doesn't have a season 2. Technically it doesn't need one but I just wish it did.
