Ever since I discovered the animated version of Death Note, I've been sinking further and further into the world of anime. Evangelion almost succeeded in pulling me into that world years ago but I'm finally here and have allot of material to go through.

I just finished watching a delightful show called Toradora. It starts of at some sort of average teen drama where we watch a collection of teens having crushes on each other while being too afraid to act on them. The main character Ryuji Takasu has a mad crush on a girl called Minori. Then one day he bumps into a girl called Taiga Aisaka. Turns out she's Minori's best friend while she herself has a crush on Ryuji's best friend. Together they scheme to help each other win over their true loves.

Yeah… you can kinda see where this is going.

Despite not being fan of teen dramas, this cartoon managed to reel me in. I'm curious if people around here have heard of this show and what their opinion was on it.

The wikipedia page for the show.
Those were my two cents.

But seriously, I do like is the dynamic between Ryuuji and Taiga, which starts of as semi-platonic and the relationship grows, rather than ‘resetting back’ to the status quo. J.C. Staff are actually quite good as an animation studio dealing with these genres. I think. It's a solid animu nonetheless.

Yea this is one of my favorites, the jokes are funny in the beginning and then it evolves into a drama where you actually give a shit bout what happens to the characters.

I thought the ending was way too drawn out though, it was just filler crap to get through 55 more minutes of screentime to me. Inko-chan is epic though.

You might give the humor in miname-ke a try if you liked toradora, and also infinite ryvius for awesome drama.

Thanks for the tip Skullbie.

I'm currently following the new Full metal alchemist series and the new episodes of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Do you even know what you're talking about?

But, yeah… that was a bit annoying. Glad that's over with.
