A Wonderfully Written Romance With Great Character Development and Intense Moments
Toradora! is a 25-episode romantic comedy about Ryuuji Takasu and Taiga Aisoka, two love-struck teens at Ohashi high-school. In the opening episodes, Ryuuji and Taiga scuffle with each other during class as Ryuuji discovers a love letter from Taiga that was intended for Ryuuji's friend, Yusaka Kitamura. Later, Ryuuji discovers he and Taiga are neighbors after Taiga attempts to kill Ryuuji out of embarrassment. Taiga then discovers Ryuuji has a hidden love interest on her best friend, Minori Kushieda. After each confess their love for each other's best friends, the two then agree to help develop each other's love interest while at the same time, trying to not seem like they are in love with each other.

MAJOR PLOT SPOILER!!!
Spoiler!



Presentation

Over the course of 25 episodes, each character in the series are uniquely developed with some expected portrayal of how those characters would behave. One of the recurring themes in the story is honesty, and it can be easily seen that each character lies to themselves and others. It is easy to get lost in many of the love triangles, but the series manages to pull itself together in the final act of the show.

Sound

The whole series also has a very well-made soundtrack that evokes the right emotions when necessary. The tear-evoking soundtracks will make you want to cry at the most intense moments, and laugh at the silliest moments.

Morals

While not preaching anything special, the series takes a stance on being honest when one is in love, and this leads to some very interesting conversations between the characters which really help you learn about them. One of the images in the final episodes is a single star in a night's sky, that no matter the distance one may always shine brightly.

Conclusion


While Toradora! is another series in a load of romantic comedy series, I can't help but absolutely recommending you take the time to watch this. Fans of other shows like Clannad!, Nichijou and Kanon should really like this show. I'd give it a 10/10.
