"A romance of warmth and humor with an uncanny ability to dodge the excesses of the genre while exploiting all the joys it has to offer."—Anime News Network
Ryuji Takasu thought that his ill-fated luck had turned around now that he was in Junior High and sitting next to the girl of his dreams, Minori Kushieda. Ryuji was wrong; after he unwittingly crossed the most fearsome girl in school, Taiga Aisaku, everything went off the deep end! Taiga made Ryuji's life by taking it over, and Ryuji's every attempt to make peace led only to further complications.
It’s taken time, but Ryuji and Taiga have found some common ground and can at least tolerate each other (just a little). The problem is everyone in Ryuji’s class is now convinced that he and Taiga are dating—even Minori! And to make matters even more embarrassing, Minori has given Ryuji and Taiga her blessings. How’s Ryuji ever going to win Minori’s heart?
Praise for the Toradora! anime:
"A genuine, nuanced tale about friendship, love and family, pretty much unrivaled by its contemporaries."—Anime Diet
"Toradora! is a lot like it’s subject matter: In turns hilarious, rambling, confused, charming, and foolish, but ultimately a worthwhile and heartwarming experience"—Anime-Planet
