How to get over a Toradora marathon 1/2

December 8, 2008

After quite a bit of lurking around on anime blogs where I read a lot of good things about Toradora, I finally sat down and gave it a go.

My, that was a hell of a ride !


Two things make this show interesting : the characters and how they interact with each other. That is a pretty basic thing to say, but allow me to try to explain my meaning. You won’t hear about plot here, because it’s almost irrelevant. It’s a high-school romantic comedy and that’s all you need to know.

Takasu Ryuuji

The violent yet adorable girl with size issues. She’s a fierce fighter good with both words and fists (oh, and feet too). She can be quite helpless too, but that’s just not a problem when your neighbor is Ryuuji, is it ? And she can drool over pictures of…

Kitamura Yuusaku

The vice-president of the school council, typical nice guy and popular with the ladies too. He’s a good judge of character, well, being Ami’s childhood friend may have educated him. He would be perfectly normal if he didn’t indulge in exhibitionism sometimes. He’s into sports just like…

Kushieda Minori

The hyperactive happy-go-lucky girl. Despite living on her own little planet, she’s also pretty observant and caring.
