Toradora!'s story begins with the male protagonist Ryuuji Takasu who is frustrated at trying to look his best as he enters his second year of high school. Despite his gentle personality, he has a natural outer-appearance which makes him look like an intimidating delinquent so he is utterly hopeless about his chances of getting a girlfriend anytime soon, and does not have many close friends either.

After being greeted by his hungover mother in the morning, Ryuuji goes to school and is happy to find that he gets to be in the same class as his best friend, Yūsaku Kitamura, and crush, Minori Kushieda. However, it is then that he unexpectedly knocks into "the school's most dangerous animal of the highest risk level" - Taiga Aisaka - who just happens to also be in his class.

Those who have read the Novels of both Toradora! and Zero no Tsukaima will disagree that Taiga is a copy of Luise. Although at the beggining it looks like both could be well voiced by Kugimiya Rie, who voices all the angry chibi's (like Luise, Shana, Tio, Nagi, etc.). But later you'll see that Taiga, like Ryuji, get misunderstand EXACTLY like that. Taiga has very different traits and they have different type of relationships to other persons. Luise is way more open. Taiga can be very aggressive .. but not in the tsundere way to hide her feelings, but to express her frustrations/anger or to protect her friends. She can even be downright nasty then. Luise can be a really dumb little girl, that always misunderstands others, while Taiga get's misunderstood by others and can't stand persons like Luise.

So much to that. If this Manga resembles anything, it'll go more in the direction of School Rumble. Although this is a bit cuter and not as hillarious, though, then SR is at most times. But unlike ZnT (which is a Fantasy-Romance) it's a genuine Lovecomedy.

PS: Don't get fooled by the ZnT Anime, too. The Anime is more ecchi and funny. While the Novel is more serious and focus on the fantasy, while the romance has a different progress and is sometimes more intense and doesn't seem as ridiculous as it is sometimes picturd in the Anime.

The only romance series I ever REALLY liked.

I'm not much into romantic manga, I have already tried to read a lot of them, but the absolute majority was either uninteresting or pissed me off. The only romance series I have ever read and really enjoyed from beginning to end is Toradora. And not just simply enjoyed, I absolutely LOVED this series!

The characters are awesome, the progression is never boring, and the development of Ryuji's and Taiga's relation is very interesting. The feeling I have about the main couple is that it's not just a meaningless romance, like with "blushing faces here and there", but that there's really love between those two.

I personally recomend you to either read the novel (best option, and it's already completely translated in baka-tsuki) or watch the anime (pretty good too). The manga has a pretty weak graphical level, even though the story is as good as with the others.

Taiga would hate Louise?

Are you sure?

It seems to me that this comment comes more from anime rather than novels side. In anime Louise is very easy to hate as she indeed is a dumb and bossy girl, but in the novels she is much deeper and very devoted person. In fact she is much more devoted than Taiga as she is willing to give everything for her friends be it her noble title or life. Louise grows from the brat to a soul aristocrat (noble not in title, but in her inner feelings). She is not that easy to hate in the novels, though she can still be annoying at times, but again when you stuck with someone as dumb and perverted as Saito it is unavoidable. As she is in love with him, while he, though supposed to be in love with her, goes around kissing other girls as if it was nothing, thats why we see so many ugly sides of Louise. If it were Ryuuji instead of Saito we would be seeing different, much more like-able Louise I think. Same goes with taiga if she were so unlucky to be with someone as horrible as Saito instead of Ryuuji.

Anyways, bottom line is that Louise and Taiga are not that far of from each other in a sense of their development. In fact Louise gets more development than Taiga (in the novels), so I would disagree that Taiga would hate a person like Louise. Well maybe a Louise which is from the start, before development kicks in, but not later one.

As for Toradora manga - I like it more than anime as it is much closer to novels, besides Taiga and Ryuuji have much better chemistry here. Though I would personally like if they would tune down the comedy a little since I so rarely see their faces drawn in a serious manner that I start forgetting how do they look at all.

I agree with U-Jin... the manga was amazing despite its sucky drawings.personally, this is my favorite manga/anime/novel in this genre ever (maybe even in all genres, but its hard to compare). Are the mangas still releasing? Because Im only checking onemanga and releases take so damn long. I would say novel>manga>anime (great anime).

though they're almost exactly the same, at some points the anime rushed things and it definetly didnt show some of the most important moments in the novel.

This is like an anti-harem. Ryuji has no luck with women at all. He might be stuck with Taiga for rest of his life. *Scary thought* It's an enjoyable read so far, I'm hoping for more development on Ryuji's relationships and rooting for him to end up with someone besides Taiga... Ami Kawashima <3

The first 4 chapters are quite good, make me hope for more. But later on, how do I say, it follow the formula of korean manhwa and jap shoujo. I lost interest. Read chapter 11, still lost interest.

A very natural and heartwarming romantic development

I first saw Toradora! as an anime series. I initially followed through it just to appreciate the unlikely friendship between a calm, mature person (albeit his snobbish features) and a temperamental person (with a really innocent and cute look). I wasn't expecting much on the romantic development. Their beautiful friendship alone, which I think is better depicted in the managa than the anime, was enough for me.

I didn't think I'd love them even more when the relationship grew deeper. The issues that surround friends who seem to be sharing a more intimate bond are present. It escalates into some sort of melodrama but the way they resolved the issues makes this series a notch higher than most school life shoujo titles. The comedic parts are hilarious too, at least in my opinion. One thing that ticks me off though is the character of Ami. Her character is fine but I dislike her involvement in the main characters' friendship.
