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.

What can you expect from manga really?

You know what the moral of the story is. If you're cute then it doesn't matter if you're a useless, lazy, raging, and crazy person, there will be people who will come to your defense.

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.

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.

great manga

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.

I haven't read the novel and probably never will. I've only seen the first episode of the anime. It's odd that this series is polarizing on /a/, since it's very straightforward and obvious who'll like it and what it's target audience is.
This is a standard shounen romcom series, but manages to be slightly better by properly resolving the relationship(s) at the end rather than wimping out or anything. The character of Ryuuji is among the better protags I've ever read in a shounen; his mom is wonderful, since I love milf. I wish she was there more often, and could be developed more. Taiga is unoriginal, but fun.
You could do much worse in shounen. So Okay It's Average.

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 like the manga's progression a little better than the Anime so far...but want to see more of both. I'd like Taiga for a 'em small, and she's tsundere in spades....

i wish i had more to read of this title sad (( i really like's really funny...i read what's released of it 1-2 weeks ago...i dont want to see the anime over ep 5 (somehow ch. 14 reaches up to ep.05 of the anime) because i like the manga too much, i think its funnier and i don't want to ruin it sad i love the characters...especially the tsundere...her personality is very appealing and the reason y she's very angry and hostile...i can relate to that...the yandere is funny's a nice way to kill some time laughing...

i'm thinking of trying out the light novel and see if i want to read the story this way because it seems it will take a long time to wait 4 new chapters...i'm also thinking of becoming an editor or something for musashi if they're recruiting...the wait is killing me bigrazz
