Okay. .__.

I only watched the anime because people kept praising it...DX Anyway, the anime was okay at best, I really liked the characters and it had its moments. XD I say watch the anime, I tried reading the manga and couldn't make it through the second volume, it was a bit...different- probably just the atmosphere.

Also, Tora Dora isn't even a Shoujo...so wrong section. DX

The anime is alright, it's both funny and cute. The ending is decent too. I would rate it about a 7 out of 10.

Funny and cute.
I only watched the anime and I really liked it. I also recommend Zero no Tsukaima, the anime version at least since I only saw that one,

For me Tora Dora is....one of the bests.
One of my favourite manga, and my favourite anime smile.

Toradora Anime is loyal to the novel... more or less... and as such I agree... that is OK... for an anime.

HOWEVER, Zero no Tsukaima anime is a BIG pile of DUNK!!!! The novel is a thousand times better, and as such the fact you are promoting dunk disturbs and annoys me.

Wha-, you must not have eyes! D:< I liked both the anime and manga, although the anime would've been better if it was just 12 episodes instead of dragging it needlessly in some parts. O_O~

But I agree with your response, it was okay. XD Nothing superb.

Since I didn't read the novel I can't say how good it is and I also know that manga is usually better than the anime version, still I found the anime enjoyable enough. So no matter how good the novel is I still don't think that the anime is as crappy as you say.

It is... I watched it...

The pacing is all wrong... the heart breaking moments are gone... there mood is all about being funny and fan service... if that is not bad, then I don't know what it is...

Good, both the manga and the anime follow the light novel in a way it's still enjoyable reading the manga and watching the anime. I still like the light novel the best though laugh

On ZnT: The first season was good (7/10). The second was decent (6/10). The third has gone horribly wrong. sad
Read the novels instead.

Back on topic: ToraDora is great. Still, it's mostly character driven. If you like them, you'll thoroughly enjoy it. Otherwise, not so much.

To be honest I was actually talking only about the first season, I tried watching the 2nd and I dropped it because indeed I thought it was stupid.

Ok now back to Toradora: just try it for yourself it's really good.

This.

The anime was good...just wasn't as good as the novel, though it did made me cry a little.
When I first started Toradora, I was rooting for Taiga (who wasn't? :\ ).
Ami was one of my most hated character of all time...till I watched the anime.
By the end of it all, I wished that he had picked her instead.
Taiga got very annoying by the end, IMO.
Hell, even Minori was a better choice by the end. (Totally cried when she got inadvertently rejected)

...
Good thing the game has alternate endings. =D
