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.

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.

Very stylish and theatrical cover to the Manga. It could be a Movie Poster! It sure appeals like one. And its been awhile since I've been exposed to any Anime since Evangelion with a Tsundere character...

i like this manga. its fun to read. its not too serious nor dramatic. its not trying too hard to be funny.

i like both characters. "Dont judge a book by its covers" is better suited for them. haha. the female lead can be annoying but its cute when she gets all nervous and scared.

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.

I haven't read the novels yet, but I heard of an anime coming out in Fall '08 so I decided to read the manga.

First four chapters are interesting and can't wait to see what might happened next. Art is pretty good. The characters are good so far. I like Ryuuji a lot. Taiga's attitude seems liked Louise from Zero no Tsukaima, but she's doesn't at some points of view - she's not always hitting the main character and seems to be little honest. I agreed with gohan11's comment about her. For now, I'm liking this series more than I expected.

Love the novel and was worried that this wouldn't stand up or would just be given a generic look, but the pacing is spot on with the book.

Also I love Taiga's attitude she is the definition of a Tsundere character, and within this setting I find her alot more interesting than Louise.

It's really stupid.....
The art is ok, and cute...
The dialouge is everywhere... so confusing sometimes...
I don't know... You won't miss anything by not reading this...
