This anime is great for anyone out there who loves a good romantic comedy.

Be sure to watch the last episode all the way through the end of the credits or you will miss very important scenes.

I really do appreciate the lightheartedness of the anime. Toradora I find comparable to the Ouran High School Host Club Series, in that it doesn't take itself too seriously and the parts that are dramatic are suitable for the situation. The animation is clean and crisp and you'll find yourself relating to the characters from the beginning of the series all the way to the end. This anime is one of those rare jewels were I found myself laughing aloud and saying "A[...]" at the romantic moments.Of all the upstanding animes this one by far sticks out in my mind. I believe this series is perfect for the romantic, comedy, shoujo, lovers and definitely recommend watching it a thousand times over. :)

Toradora! Volume 1 Standard Edition
I read the other reviews good and bad. I the watched the whole series on You tube -Twice.
By then I was so hooked I had to buy the whole series! Good points- Great animation, Very well fleshed out characters,
The funniest anime in my collection! Great story lines, A truly great romance, Satisfying final resolution to series.
So good you want to watch it over and over and will still pickup new nuances every time through.
Just watch the whole first episode on You tube and you'll be hooked too.
Bad points- There are no bad points!!!
The series is in two volumes, The one I am reviewing and volume 2 standard edition, 25 total episodes.
It is in Japanese with English subtitles -you will prefer it this way after watching it, its hilarious!
My top recommendation to this, it is my new favorite!

UPDATE- I just received my DVD's They are crystal clear transfers in widescreen. The English
subtitles have been slightly updated from those I saw on You Tube and make more sense to the
story. Be sure to watch the last episode all the way through the end of the credits or you
will miss very important scenes. -Enjoy.

Ryuji and Taiga meet by coincidence. As it turns out, they have a crush on each others best friend. They also happen to live next door to each other. Despite their totally different backgrounds and attitudes, they decide to team up and help the other get close to the ones they love. As time passes, the pair begins to feel something comforting and natural about being with one another. What will they do about the feelings they have had all this time? What will they do about the new feelings that have surfaced? One thing is for sure. In a love pentagon, a few hearts are bound to be broken.

This series starts off kind of silly. It actually remains that way most of the way through. At the same time, it deals with very serious and intense emotions. There are times when I thought, " oh my gosh, this is stupid". There were also times when I almost cried . It's a lot like Clannad or Kanon in that regard. There are a lot of great characters, plot twists, and plenty of emotion to go around. The production quality of this series is also very good. The animation, soundtrack, and voice actors are all top notch.

I do have a few issues with Toradora though. I really wish it was dubbed, for one. It's hard to relax when you're undivided attention is focused on reading subs. You can't turn away for a second because much of the dialogue is very important. My other problem is the ending. It's not the worst ending I've ever seen, but it doesn't seem to fit. After all the characters had been through together, you would expect them to be different. That's all I'll say about that though.

Despite my 2 issues with Toradora, I thoroughly enjoyed watching it. I think it ranks up inn my top 10 anime dramas ever. It's also kind of expensive like many other anime series out there.

I really like this anime. It tells a great story and has many arcs in its 24 episode run. The characters are unique and believeable, which is not something you see in anime very often. I would recommend this to anyone who likes this type of anime, and maybe even to those who don't. ToraDora is that good to me. But the font used for the subtitles on the amazon version is way to small for my taste. I haven't seen the DVD release subtitles, but compared to the other subtitled anime I've watched through other sources, amazon fails in comparison. That is literally my only gripe for this series, and it's not even about the series itself, just how it was handled in this release version. I highly recommend anyone interested give ToraDora a watch because you'll enjoy every episode. Just maybe try to find a different version with a larger font.

I was getting irritated reading some of the other reviews so I decided to make my own. ToraDora was one of the first animes I watched all the way through in Japanese with english subtitles and I really enjoyed it. Fans of Ouran or Fruits Basket should definitly give this one a try. I haven't recieved the discs yet but I'm really excited to add them to my collection. The books are currently being printed in English and I've heard rumors that a English Dub series is on the way. While the ending may not be satisfactory for some fans, others may not have a problem with it, if it irritates you that much just watch it on YouTube or something before you decide whether or not to buy.
